The staffers at Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails know that a grumbling stomach can ruin a relaxing spa day as surely as it can ruin a congressional hearing on manners. That’s why they've designed the six-hour Day of Beauty to include a light lunch in between an aromatherapy facial, mani-pedi, shampoo and style, and makeup application. But even with a meal break, this package still can't claim to be a comprehensive survey of the studio's specialties, which also include Swedish and sports massages, bikini waxing, and tanning in a standup booth.
The skilled tanning specialists at Say Spahhh Beautique’s Elmwood Park studio spoon-feed skin with nutrients and rich, golden color. The scents of flickering candles share the air with sighs of contentment at the spa’s newly renovated facility, which houses a range of modern equipment alongside plush massage beds and bottles filled to the brim with exfoliating facial products. Like the collagen-reactivating facial, an FDA-cleared Lipomassage system works to tighten skin while it tones the body's contours and releases fat cells trapped in posteriors, legs, and behind rib-cage bars.
When she was just 19, Chiara Lazzara became a certified national educator for Paul Mitchell. Since then, she's spent the past decade honing her skills and now dispenses styling wisdom from her own establishment, Chiara Salon. Inside this Paul Mitchell focus salon, she and her team revitalize manes with services such as haircuts, color, and highlights. They also lengthen tresses with natural human-hair extensions, and embellish visages with lash extensions, spray tanning, and mani-pedis. In addition to beautifying hair for everyday wear, the team also specializes in hair and makeup packages for weddings and special events, with services performed on location or at the salon.
Since opening its doors in 2011, SanOlvi Beauty has carved out a niche for itself as a modern hair salon that works with male and female clients of all ages. Its contemporary decor, highlighted by a large waiting room, mirrors the fashion-forward looks the stylists create for their clients. In addition to salon offerings, the menu of services also includes nail, threading, and waxing treatments.
Master hairstylist and makeup artist Heather Broder and her staff take the time to conduct a consultation at the beginning of every appointment, ensuring that each client's hair dreams are realized. Broder uses her skills to craft haircuts that range from classic to cutting-edge and can include the addition of eye-catching color or strategically placed tinsel. To complete new looks, clients can opt for a brow wax and makeup application.
Mongibello Salon and Spa, located in the heart of Chicago’s historic Dunning neighborhood, is home to expertly trained and licensed stylists who have attended top-notch style schools in Europe and the United States. With a great zeal for their clients’ beauty and contentedness vis-à-vis their tresses, the staff treats hair with several services and specializes in organic keratin hair-taming treatments. The team also presents a broad range of skincare services. One signature treatment, the five-berry facial peel, converts cranberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, and bearberry into an acne-demolishing formula—the highest concentration of berries outside the family reunions that Chuck Berry attends. Mongibello’s technicians also render waxing treatments and perform manicures.
Ulta pampers hair with a suite of top-quality treatments, leaving coiffures sculpted and purring with delight. Hair bearers report to a stylist for a consultation, which determines how to go about the cut in regard to lifestyle, desired look, and blood type. A shampoo and specially formulated condition cleans locks and treats damaged hair, leaving cranial carpets clean and soft before cutting, and a relaxing scalp massage exhumes heads of ghosts of stress past. The expert scissor wielders carefully reshape dowdy 'dos into masterworks, and a blow-dry and style leave newly coiffed heads prepped to face judgmental mirrors.
