In 2003, beauty expert Reema Khan noticed just how many patrons of her Chicago salon sought expert brow-shaping services. Reema decided to open up Shapes Brow Bar, and since its inception, it has now expanded into a franchise with more than 75 locations nationwide. In addition to brow services, clients can opt for makeup applications, facial treatments, and body waxing services.
Shantell?s treatments can simultaneously relax and re-energize the senses.

Roslyn Stephens believes that massages help the body heal itself. She uses her professionally trained fingers for 10 different massage modalities at Balancing Acts Massage & Wellness, PC. During deep-tissue massages, she stretches muscles and applies pressure to the back to help relieve deep-seated aches. During aromatherapy massages, she stimulates clients’ senses with essential oils. For geriatric massages she uses an especially soft and healing touch to ease pain. To help her clients trim inches from waists and other problem areas, Roslyn supplies Skinny Fiber weight-loss supplements and performs body wraps to tighten waistlines and infuse the skin with botanical ingredients that flush out toxins and bellybutton gnomes late with their rent.
