Skincare experts administer custom facials that target blemishes and signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dinosaur scratches. Oak Brook Salon and Spa also staffs massage therapists to soothe sore muscles and relax troubled minds with aromatherapy, therapeutic, and hot-stone massages. Other options include spa mani-pedis and henna tattooing.
At Eden Salon & Spa, guests sip on drafts of water, coffee, or tea as they wait to meet with stylists to shape their hair, skin, or nails into a new, revitalizing look. Along with hairstyling and color treatments such as highlights or eyebrow tints, the staff specializes in a full suite of mani-pedi services, from applying acrylics to coating fingernails or toe hubcaps with chip-resistant Shellac polish.
Stylists at Elite Edge Hair Salon cut and color the manes of male and female clients, realizing the style goals laid out in a complimentary personal consultation. Behind their sleek leather styling chairs, stylists carefully weave So.Cap hair extensions in more than 81 different colors and three different textures, which last for up to six months. They also coat unruly strands with keratin straightening treatments, which work to keep hair as smooth as the freestyle raps of an audiobook narrator.
