As owner of The Beauty Studio, Elizabeth wears many hats. She's a state-licensed aesthetician and nail technician, is certified in medical aesthetics and micropigmentology, and can braid hair with one finger. In the comfort of her cozy beauty studio, clients can draw on her 15 years of experience with an invigorating facial, shea-butter wrap, or anti-aging exfoliation treatment. The spa can also promote eye appeal with lash extensions or nix unflattering hair from the brows and body with a specialty waxing session.
Laser Med Spa's aestheticians beautify and heal clients using advanced products and technology. That technology allows them to perform treatments such as laser hair removal, pixel skin resurfacing, or VelaShape cellulite treatments. Whatever the service, the staff treats each client as an individual; they'll explain each step of the process in addition to educating you on preventative and restorative maintenance.
In addition to their advanced medical techniques, the team also stockpiles some of the industry?s most forward-thinking dermatological products. Arbonne products blend antioxidants and natural botanicals to cleanse and smoothen the complexion with products for men, women, and children. Additionally, the Glominerals line has been used on top stars at the Academy Awards; it's garnered universal acclaim for its long-lasting effects without clogging pores or morphing your face into a Richard Nixon mask.
With the names Gold and Diamond, AA Salon & Spa's menu might read like a a jewelry store's inventory. But here, the goal is not to festoon the neck or the ring finger, but instead the entire face. The skincare specialists do that with facials, including the Gold and Diamond varieties, that combat blemishes or signs of aging by using products such as oils from Turkey to deeply moisturize visages. Other services include hairstyling, waxing, and makeup application.
After having her eyebrows irrevocably etched at the age of 18, Kelly Hemmerich became a believer in permanent cosmetics and its ability to shorten morning routines. Since 1998, she has honed her own skills as a certified permanent makeup artist. She offers two modes of application when enhancing features: SoftTap, which reduces discomfort, and a digital rotary machine that’s able to simulate eyebrow hairs and lessen touch-up times.
The aesthetician and eponymous owner Erin Sharp's Esthetics Studio beautifies visages with treatments that range from chemical peels to waxing sessions. When she isn't extracting unwanted fuzz or improving complexions, she?s prepping skin for the beach with paraben-free tanning solutions by South Seas Skincare. Erin also bulks up lash lines with synthetic extensions from Xtreme Lashes, which withstand showers, workouts, and days spent staring directly into fans for up to two months. During her off-hours, Erin studies the art of permanent cosmetics so that she can indelibly accentuate eyes, lips, and brows.
As a child, Michael Perich watched in awe as the women in his life enhanced their features and self-esteem by applying makeup. His wonder turned into passion when he became an expert in color theory and cosmetic techniques. As his talent grew, so did his portfolio, media recognition, and the pressure to sell, sell, sell. He found himself disillusioned. So in 2004, he opened Camp Cosmetics to return to his true passion—educating women and helping them feel beautiful and confident. Today, his Chicagoland store provides cruelty-free products made with botanical extracts and high pigment levels that keep reapplication to a minimum.
