The master stylists at Robert's Salon and Day Spa whip wayward hairs into shape with flattering precision design cuts and styles. Scissors sever split ends and trim length from heads during the face-framing cut before new dos are aptly fashioned to fit each guest’s personal style. Warm lighting reflects off of glossy wood finishes in the sleek salon space, which is peppered with Robert’s proprietary line of beauty products and a range of plush, comfortable seating.
As a CND Grand Master technician, Anna Elliott has the expertise she needs to apply Shellac polish, which must be cured under UV light to achieve its maximum durability. Her crew assists her not only by filing nails and taming cuticles, but also by pampering appendages with hot mitts and boots that aid in the absorption of lotions and finally do away with the M&M's clients have been trying to melt with their hands.
Split Ends Hair & Nail Studio's team helps clients' personalities shine through their hair and nails. If guests favor funky, eye-catching looks, stylists can snip strands into layers, add two-toned hair color, or paint toenails vibrant hues. Alternatively, the team members can craft classic cuts and updos and paint nails in sophisticated hue, more red than a fire engine made of red-velvet cake.
On a trip to Chicago from his native Italy, young Mario Tricoci changed his life forever. The fledgling hairdresser stopped in at a prestigious salon, where he impressed the owner with his impeccable display of skill and landed himself a job. The next six decades brought strings of industry awards and the opening of his very own salon, which soon exploded into 26 locations in four states. With his styling prowess proven both to the industry and to the clients he encountered each day, the coiffeur decided to share his gift with others. In 2004, he established Tricoci University to foster a new generation of cosmetologists and spa technicians trained to thrive in the luxury-spa industry.
Throughout the Midwest, Tricoci prot?g?s study a rigorous curriculum in high-end salon and spa surroundings to learn how to create beautiful hairdos, choose skin-flattering cosmetics, and beautify nails and skin. A team of experienced industry professionals readies pupils for the beauty world with in-depth classes, and outside education arrives via video demonstrations and guest-artist lectures on Vidal Sassoon's Wedge-Bob Postulate. More advanced students get a preview of their career to come by beautifying real people during instructor-supervised treatments, which lend the stylist essential experience as the client enjoys a pampering session at a discounted rate.
Guided by a holistic philosophy that traces aches and pains back to an imbalanced life force, staffers at Eden’s Pathway coat physiques in organic products during massages, facials, and natural nail therapies. These treatments not only deliver beautifying results, but also delight the senses—citrus aromas permeate the air during mani-pedis that use lemon creams and scrubs, and chocolate fragrances please nostrils during facials that feature a cleanser, exfoliant, and mask triad imbued with cocoa. Massages range from deep tissue to sports and take place in both individual and couples sessions, so clients can either bring their significant other along or leave them tied to a bike rack outside.
