Inside of its boutique Logan Square space, the staff of Beauty & Soul relax and pamper the body focusing on relaxation and stress relief. Eminence Organic and Dr. Hauschka products figure into replenishing skin treatments and consultations performed by skincare therapists, who help clients attain soft and radiant complexions. They also offers comfortable, confidence-building hair removal using natural-based lukewarm wax for those looking to shed unsightly body hair.
Ever since fingernails and toenails began growing in the early 2000s, Look Nail Salon & Spa’s staff has gone to great lengths to keep them expertly maintained. While trimming and buffing nails to an eye-catching sheen, the skilled techs indulge the senses with hot-towel wraps or slough away dead skin with an exfoliating sea-salt scrub. The salon’s state-of-the-art shujitsu pedicure chairs push clients to the pinnacle of full-on relaxation, simultaneously soaking the feet, massaging the back, and filing the client's taxes. Beyond lavishing them with nailcare, the staff gussies up patrons with lash extensions and waxing.
A laser spa may conjure up images of a stark medical environment, but those would be images in the mind of someone who's never been to Azizta Laser Spa. The interior, which resembles a cozy living room, brims with vintage furniture that hosts exfoliating loofahs and handmade goat's milk soaps. Here, laser services and facial treatments pamper clients looking to rid themselves of unwanted hair or fine lines caused by aging or napping on a sewer grate.
When Kauser opened her first salon in the late '90s, she was among the first to bring threading to Chicago. This Eastern technique uses twists of cotton thread to pluck unwanted hairs with precision and speed, which can create a more-elegant arch with less discomfort than more-common tools, such as tweezers or hedge clippers. Today, Kauser and her staff beautify clients with herbal and chemical-free products at her current location in Roscoe Village. In addition to threading, the salon also offers waxing, facials, makeup, and henna tattoos that decorate hands and arms with swirling patterns and delicate flowers.
The trained professionals at Essence MedSpa & Wellness Center use radio-frequency therapy to banish unwanted body hair in a peaceful setting. After taking into account individual characteristics such as hair color, body chemistry, and cellular carrier, Essence's certified staff of whisker-whackers aim pulsating beams of light at the rogue bristles nesting under arms or across bikini lines, damaging follicles to reduce their potential for regrowth. Six treatments should imbue the tress-trimmed with the confidence to slap high-fives with little to no underarm-hair interference, or to visit the beach without donning pesky cover-ups or diverting attention by kicking over sand hippodromes. Each laser treatment lasts an average of 15–20 minutes, and is less painful than razors, or hot wax.
Hair grows on the body in so many unwanted places––the back, the shoulders, the legs, and the fingernails, just to name a few. But it doesn't have to be this way. The skilled technicians at Beena Salon can nix unwanted fuzz from virtually anywhere with their signature removal services. For ease of service they offer several gentle techniques, such as waxing, threading, and reverse psychology, wherein the technician begs the hair to grow faster.
