Friendly experts at Cheveux Salon & Day Spa execute an extensive menu of on-trend beauty treatments, massages, body wraps, and facials infused with luxe products from Keratin Complex, Pureology, and MoroccanOil. Clipsters design customized cuts and smooth them with long-lasting thermal straightening, and a special ops team tackles curls with Ouidad services engineered to control the unpredictable curves and baffling quadrangles of wavy locks. Infused with essential oils, fruit extracts, or sea salt, body treatments aim to polish, balance, and detox epidermises all over. Massages delve deeper, as therapists ease muscles and oust tension with a blend of relaxing Swedish strokes, intense deep-tissue massage, and invigorating buckets of chilled champagne.
As a child, Michael Perich watched in awe as the women in his life enhanced their features and self-esteem by applying makeup. His wonder turned into passion when he became an expert in color theory and cosmetic techniques. As his talent grew, so did his portfolio, media recognition, and the pressure to sell, sell, sell. He found himself disillusioned. So in 2004, he opened Camp Cosmetics to return to his true passion—educating women and helping them feel beautiful and confident. Today, his Chicagoland store provides cruelty-free products made with botanical extracts and high pigment levels that keep reapplication to a minimum.

Armed with pharmaceutical-grade botanical skin care lines free of parabens, sulfates, and Dr. Doom's Hot Sauce, the talented team behind Aesthetics by Juliette rejuvenate the skin of each client. Before performing facials, an aesthetician does a consultation and in-depth analysis, identifying potential issues and building a treatment that will best suit the skin. Teen acne facials help clear up red spots and the anxiety they can bring, while the lymphatic/sinus and allergy facial can help bolster the immune system. The Organic Foot Parlor, a division of the spa, pampers feet with one of several tea and herb baths, poured into a wooden tub filled with stones, while hands undergo a revitalizing thai and reflexology massage. All clients who book with Aesthetics by Juliette can experience what it's like to live in at least one room of a glass house—the custom-made, glass enclosed Himalayan Crystal Salt Room is available to all patrons.
Though lice commonly ail the heads of children, most parents don’t know exactly what to do or where to go when the problem arises. Parents Sandi Cranny and Suzanne Comella experienced this confusion firsthand when they went through their own lice infestations, quickly realizing the need for a specialty salon dedicated to the treatment of lice. They studied up and opened Shiny Strands, which is certified by the Shepherd Institute of Lice Solutions and uses only nontoxic products. The technicians use a highly effective procedure known as the strand-by-strand method to rid heads of lice, and they issue back-to-school release forms once kids are safe to return to class. While kids undergo treatment, they can keep themselves distracted with a handheld DVD player or a bag of popcorn, and parents can pour themselves cups of coffee and flip through magazines.
