The crew at Starmakers Hair Salon can help maintain the health of your hairs—even the ones you weren't born with. The stylists here are experts in sew-in weaves, lengthening and thickening micro-link extensions, and other forms of hair enhancement, though they're also just as adept at the classic shampoo and set.
At I-Too, a team of experienced aestheticians works tirelessly to capture and eradicate errant hair using a combination of traditional and modern methods. An ancient Eastern art, eyebrow threading uses only a small, 100% cotton thread and the skillful hands of its master to carefully remove renegade forehead follicles. The process achieves finely sculpted brows by twisting the thread around the offending strands, evicting them quickly, painlessly, and before they can ask for their security deposit back. Because it doesn't strip the top layer of skin, threading is an appropriate technique for all skin types, causing minimal irritation or emotional distress to the face.
Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and other mega-stars always seem to look effortlessly chic and polished, with nary a hair out of place. The stylists at Weaves Etc aim to give that same red-carpet treatment to the rest of us. They specialize in multicultural hair artistry, with packages ranging from the Supreme's full-coverage weave with flat-ironing and styling to basic detail trimming. They also sculpt brows and perform makeovers that enhance natural features.

In 2003, beauty expert Reema Khan noticed just how many patrons of her Chicago salon sought expert brow-shaping services. Reema decided to open up Shapes Brow Bar, and since its inception, it has now expanded into a franchise with more than 75 locations nationwide. In addition to brow services, clients can opt for makeup applications, facial treatments, and body waxing services.
In 2010, licensed massage therapist Tracey Pinckney opened Alluring Studio and Spa so she could pamper clients with modalities ranging from relaxing Swedish to foot-focused reflexology. Since then, the studio has had to accommodate for its rising popularity by moving to a bigger space and offering more services. Inside the new location’s earth-toned interior, clients can enjoy facials, scrubs, and waxing treatments along with Tracey’s signature massages. As an independent Mary Kay beauty consultant, Tracey also possesses the supplies and training to help clients makeover their looks before hopping on a saddled tortoise for nights on the town. She also invites patrons to bring their own makeup to Teach Me Makeup workshops and travels to their homes with a cache of massage oil and eyelash extensions for spa parties.
