It was her struggle with acne that led Jessica, a DePaul University graduate and former IT project manager, to make the switch from information technology to medical aesthetics. Today, she is certified by CosMedix in everything from basic epidermal care to complex chemical peels. She strives to fuel her treatments with CosMedix products, which are free of irritating ingredients such as parabens, synthetic glycolic acid, fragrances, and shredded glamour photos.
Jessica also teaches teens how to conquer acne with lessons on proper skincare and facial treatments. When she isn't helping individual clients obtain radiant skin or filing lawsuits against rosacea, she hosts spa parties for special events and provides all the necessary supplies.
When Seida Chapa opened her own salon, she staffed it with trained stylists who inject industry trends into their menu of services. In addition to haircuts and color treatments, they calm frizzy tresses with keratin and chemical straightening treatments. Spa specialists can give collagen a boost, expel fat, and improve circulation with Bioslimming wraps, and aesthetic specialists use glycolic-acid peels to help subdue wrinkles, dead skin cells, and large pores. Eyelash extensions and eyebrow threading make peepers pop, as do traditional and permanent makeup services. Staffers also primp hands and feet with mani-pedis, or craft custom wigs made out of human hair harvested from John Stamos's immortal scalp.
In just one visit to Beauty Concepts, you can get a scalp massage, a haircut, and a no chip manicure and pedicure. This head-to-toe approach to beauty also includes eyebrow threading and full body waxing, as well as microdermabrasions and full facials that start with deep cleaning and exfoliation and wrap up with an invigorating steam treatment and extractions to remove blackheads and misplaced construction signs. Each facial is tailored to clients' skin types, ensuring the appropriate mix of ingredients and cleansing techniques to make complexions glow.
The stylists at Posh Salon have years of training and experience behind them. Regardless of what patrons wish for their strands, from help managing their ringlets to adding permanent waves to straight-haired tresses, or whether customers want gilded highlights, precision cuts, or formal updos, one of the stylists specializes in it. In addition to hair services, stylists also offer swift hair removal.
Cathy India, the aesthetician behind The Skin You're In, beautifies clients’ complexions with custom facials and seasonal treatments that keep skin smooth and blemish-free year-round. She treats guests to facials, microdermabrasions, and chemical peels as well as exfoliating body scrubs and wraps infused with volcanic clay, Chinese herbs, and other therapeutic ingredients.
The salon’s pin lights loom overhead like a star constellation, bringing the rich autumnal reds of the hardwood floors. Amid these warm accents, skilled Jose Angel stylists craft sleek face-flattering cuts and bedeck tresses with color products by Matrix and Nioxin. Clients can also request a specialty updo for an upcoming wedding, prom, or skydive.
