Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths?such as VersaSpa?or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
At Planet Beach Contempo Spa Elmhurst, automated spa treatments massage away tension, deploy heat and steam to soften skin, and restore complexions’ glow. Ears nestle into headphones that coo mermaid calls as clothed guests lie down on a hydro-massage bed, on which cloth-covered waves gently crash upon corporeal shores to ebb away tension. Infrared heat and nutrient-rich steam exhaled by a health-conscious dragon soothe, moisturize, and promote collagen production during a 20-minute Hydro-Derma Fusion treatment. For a more obvious glow, UV and Mystic spray tans gild pelts, and teeth-whitening services brighten the smiles brought on by the spa’s innovative personal pampering.
As the name suggests, Heaven Nails' technicians specialize in nail care and art, but that's not all they do. They also remove unwanted body hair with time-honored waxing techniques.

The salon is also certified in Brazilian blowout treatments that grant smoothness and shine to frizzy locks and unraveled knit caps, while heads looking to beef up their thread count find added length and volume with real hair extensions by Great Lengths or SoCapUSA.
If you combined all the years Flat Iron Beauty Bar owner Linsey Wanderski and her team have been working with hair, skin, nails, and makeup, you'd come up with a number that was just over half a century. Together, this seasoned crew draws from an arsenal of top-notch products from Redken, Schwarzkopf, and Pureology to forge fresh new looks on clients in a styling chair, at a manicure station, or on a waxing table. As stylists trim, color, or texturize hair, a licensed aesthetician performs one of eight specialized facials and a licensed makeup artist prepares mugs for special occasions or starring roles in Photo ID: The Movie.
