Billy Malley pays homage to three generations' worth of hairstyling alongside a skilled staff of beautifiers performing a diverse menu of salon and spa services. Stylists clip away excess strands, insert fresh hues into coifs, and add more curl to heads with perms. Mani-pedis and waxing treatments whip unkempt appearances into shape, and massages eradicate tension caused by bobbing for apples in shark tanks. Facials and body treatments harness the healing powers of vitamin C, seaweed, and Dead Sea salts to cleanse and de-mottle epidermises.
Though Dr. Sathish Narayanappa Babu trekked across Asia, Europe, and the United States to practice as a physician and cardiothoracic surgeon, he always took notice of how different cultures define beauty. Now, as the medical director and founder of Simply Serenity Medi Spa & Hair Salon, Dr. Narayanappa, alongside a team of trained technicians, beautifies clients with his worldly knowledge of aesthetic treatments. Along with classic salon and spa services, the Orland Park haven offers a selection of laser treatments, body-contouring devices, and weight-loss systems, which aid the staff as they eliminate body hair and smooth cellulite.
Hair Clippers Salon’s stylist Jason boasts more than 15 years of experience along with a team of other experienced stylists. At this Redken- and Pureology-certified salon, they put that experience to good use with haircuts and coloring for men and women, as well as perms, updos, and keratin treatments. Other services include manicures and pedicures and facial waxing.
For many, shedding unwanted pounds can be daunting and time-consuming. But at Intelligent Lipo of Orland Park, it’s neither, thanks to its i-Lipo treatments. The treatments effectively zap and dissipate fat cells without surgery, pain, or rituals involving genies and protein powder. Administered by board-certified Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Robert William Wrona, i-Lipo can help to shrink clients up to two dress sizes after eight sessions—in conjunction with exercise—while also smoothing their cellulite and boosting their confidence to streak at an upcoming local sporting event.
Dr. Faris Abusharif leads Bella Gente's team in softening the effects of weather and time with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatments. Prior to the treatment, a medical staffer evaluates ailments such as acne scars, sun damage, and fine lines that may be improved with microdermabrasion's deep exfoliation. A licensed aesthetician or a registered nurse captains the complexion renewal, buffing contours with a diamond-encrusted nib that brushes off blankets of dead cells and rouses youthful tissue from its beauty nap underneath.
Aesthetician Jennifer Lopez presides over Inspirations by Design with eight years of experience in the makeup industry, including time spent studying with Bobbi Brown and as a makeup expert at Sephora. She can create flatteringly natural or dramatic makeup looks for each client, or can flex real transformative power by shearing hair or coloring it to a rich chestnut, golden blond, or the black of a jaguar’s heart. The multitalented artist can combine her skills to doll up brides and their attendants before the ceremony.
C'est La Vie Hair Boutique & Spa's private manicure and pedicure stations reside in a cove that's as stylish as the nails that emerge from it, its deep-blue walls and plush leather chairs partitioned off by attractive drapery. This appreciation of the finer things extends to the lineup of spa and salon products: staffers use popular OPI polishes to paint nails and Goldwell products to add color to hair that's dabbling in the artsy black-and-white phase of its career. Though the spa specializes in bridal hair and makeup services, men shouldn't feel left out, as the slate of male-centric treatments includes beard grooming, gray-hair blending, and even a special men's facial.
