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.
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 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.
