The trained stylists and nail artists behind Laverne Carroll Hair & Nail Lounge make use of recently developed trends and techniques while sculpting hair and pampering nails in a lounge-style atmosphere. In addition to haircuts, they modify manes with perms, relaxers, and sew-in or bonded hair extensions. When they aren't twisting and trimming tresses, they render natural and artificial nail treatments and complement eyes' natural beauty with eyebrow and lash enhancements or glasses that have miniature photos of runway models instead of frames.
When it first opened its doors in 2000, the European Foot and Ankle Clinic set out to keep feet healthy by combining conventional medical treatments and holistic practices. Over the past 12 years, this unique approach to treatment has garnered a following, and the clinic gradually expanded to 9 locations throughout Chicago. At each location, multilingual doctors in podiatric medicine treat issues ranging from heel pain to toenail fungus to chronic stubbed toes caused by regularly throwing childlike temper tantrums.
The aestheticians and stylists at Modern Wave Salon help initiate relaxation and restore natural beauty with an array of hair, spa, and beauty treatments. Modern Wave Salon's staff, which has served Bridgeport for more than 26 years, pairs treatments with ongoing consultations, tips on contemporary styles, and legal advice. The salon's services range from full formal up-dos to hydrating facials replete with seaweed masks and a massage of the face, neck, and shoulders. Beauty buffs wax arms, backs, and bikini lines, and help prep guests for weddings with bridal makeup applications or for upscale barn raisings with classic french manicures. Inside the studio, hanging lights cast a warm glow onto exposed-brick walls.
Wood details permeate the interior of Elegant Beauty Salon & Spa, from the gleaming floors to the manicure counters to the framed mirrors that rest above each styling station. These clean lines relax the eyes while a team of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists revivify exteriors. Treatments range from intricate braids and feather wraps to more relaxing hot-stone massages and facials.
Whether online or in-person, Allure Beauty Lounge outfits epidermises with a slew of high-quality products. Licensed aestheticians man the brick-and-mortar boutique, where they dispel four types of facials—such as the Organic Apple Soufflé treatment, complete with hot towels and an apple-spice mask. They also smooth skin with fruit-acid chemical peels and waxing for the face and body. The team dolls up brides and prom queens for their big day, and teaches budding makeup artists all the essentials, from applying concealer to playing up their cheekbones, third eye, or lips. Online, customers can fill their electronic shopping carts with mineral eye shadow, smudge-proof mascara, and cream foundation in 19 shades.
Just like the rolling carts at Dim Sum restaurants, Dim Sum Nails and Hair has something to suit every taste. A glance at the nail salon's Instagram feed reveals perfectly manicured nails topped with everything from classic French tips to colorful designs embellished with glittery gems. The salon doesn't stop at hands and feet though; clients can also book eyelash extensions and blow-outs in order to look polished from head to toe.
