Although the hairstyles crafted at Abracadabra Hair Salon & Boutique might seem like magical feats, they're actually a direct reflection of the styling team's refined skills. With scissors and an array of haircare products at their disposal, the stylists create voluminous layers, enliven locks with highlights, and arrange strands into updos for special occasions, such as weddings or graduations. The salon's team also dolls up digits with gentle nail services.
Allure Laser Center's attentive staff offers noninvasive, long-lasting hair-removal services designed to subdue unwanted stubble. During each session, a technician thins the treatment area's fuzz with a follicle-destroying light pulse, politely barring future hair intruders from the epidermis. Though the treatment may temporarily redden skin, the laser's cooling tip soothes body surfaces and minimizes irritation, much like covering a new tattoo with refreshing Altoid crumbles.
Board-certified internist Dr. Steve Fabrizio, MD, oversees the staff at Premier Medical Weight Loss and Aesthetics. His efforts to tackle obesity throughout the past decade have given him expertise in dieting, exercise, and medications, which supplements the aesthetic treatments at his medspa. On the spa side, Botox injections work to erase the lines and creases that appear after years of folding your face up into your wallet, and lasers zap away unwanted hair and spider veins.
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.
The weeping willows hanging over Christopher George's Salon herald the serenity of the idyllic space they shade. The airy space sprawls across 1,000 square feet of leather chairs, black-lacquered wood decor, and high-end haircare products from the likes of Paul Mitchell. Talented stylists with 22 years of experience bustle about the salon, shearing strands into face-framing shapes during designer haircuts and refashioning follicles into a northern-lights-like display of color with partial highlights. Complimentary chalices of wine occasionally accompany treatments, providing a tasty alternative to the barbicide cocktails served at most traditional salons.
