Sharmilla Hira might be new to Heidi's Salon, but she's accumulated more than a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, training on various procedures throughout Europe and the United States. As an aesthetician, she puts this experience to use through skincare treatments including facials, microdermabrasion, and threading. However, her true specialty is permanent makeup; during her application sessions, she helps define the eyes and mouth with natural pigments, and adds extra color to cheeks, lips, and invisible freckles. She also uses her services to correct various physical conditions; she can disguise stretch marks, replenish brows or hairlines affected by alopecia, or reconstruct areolas after a mastectomy or breast enhancement.

Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with relaxing yoga classes and supportive personal-training sessions in a tranquil spa setting. Within the serene yoga studio, pupils fluidly glide into seated, reclined, and standing postures during stress-melting Hatha yoga as soft lighting radiates from sloped ceilings and wooden pillars maintain stoic tree poses. Students may also contact Whole Body Studio and Spa to enroll in specialized classes, such as therapeutic prenatal yoga or the Mom and Baby Yoga class, which whimsically whisks new mothers and infants through rejuvenating asanas.

Bronzed Image Tanning darkens and de-blemishes human hides with an arsenal of sun-imitating technology and non-UV machines.

Led by Dr. Landon Pryor, the skilled technicians at True Laser use Candela GentleLase and GentleYAG lasers for hair removal and collagen-stimulating skin-rejuvenation treatments. They calibrate the laser's wavelength to suit either purpose, and a cooling device spritzes skin with cryogen immediately after the laser's pulses to make treatments more comfortable for clients.

But not all of True Laser's services are laser-based. Aestheticians polish away dead and dull skin with microdermabrasion treatments, using pure baking-soda crystals—rather than the more commonly used aluminum oxide—to avoid unnecessary skin irritation. They also stock glo therapeutics skincare products—infused with vitamin C and ultrafine fairy dust—for facials tailored toward each client's needs, and they administer facial peels to target signs of aging.

At his two gyms in Bloomingdale and Rockford, Elite Defense Systems' chief instructor Matt Numrich leads practical, defense-oriented classes focused on jeet kune do, the hybrid martial art and philosophical system developed in 1965 by Bruce Lee. Jeet kune do focuses on efficiency and personal development, guiding students through a mixture of more than two dozen arts.

Though Elite Defense Systems offers one-on-one training, group lessons for men, women, and children are recommended for their sense of community, their varied sparring partners, and their chances for students to combine into a five-piece battle robot. Including Matt, the gyms have a staff of only three instructors and three assistants, allowing for a closer student-teacher relationship.

At Asha SalonSpa, aestheticians and massage therapists combine forces to ensure the whole-body well-being of clients.

At the salon, makeup and nail services revitalize faces and fingers, and hair treatments such as cuts and color rely on Aveda’s natural line of products. Asha also offers several massages, including deep-tissue, couples, and chakra-balancing modalities, allowing patrons to unwind without setting off their clockwork motors.
