The Lather Lounge is a Paul Mitchell–focus salon that creates an atmosphere which allows clients to look and feel their best with a menu of indulgent hair services. Before opening her own salon, Lynn Griglin spent 2.5 years honing mane-management skills at Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, before working as an educator for Paul Mitchell, where she trained fellow stylists in the art of hair chromatics. Her equally dedicated staffers conjure pleasant visits by providing two complimentary services of the client's choice, such as a steam facial or neck massage, with each haircut, waxing, or skin treatment. In addition to snipping signature 'dos and shaping eyebrows into elegant arches or intimidating lightening bolts, The Lather Lounge contributes to several charitable causes, including cancer research and an organization that uses hair clippings to clean up oil spills.

[There's] a runway for the ladies to walk out their wildest fashion fantasies while they wait.
The term reflexology may conjure images of gentle knee taps at the doctor's office, but the practice has been a comprehensive form of Chinese healing for thousands of years. Health Foot Massage practitioners channel that therapeutic art during their private massage sessions. They begin with a consultation to determine the client's source of lingering stress. Afterward, they administer deliberate pressure to acupuncture points in the feet that are believed to be linked to deeper bodily aches. The benefits can be diverse, often ranging from fatigue and stress relief to improved metabolism, circulation, and flying ability.
Keep It Young’s professional, certified aestheticians act as comfort concierges, summoning their experience and a philosophy of treating spa services as a craft to curate custom, soothing experiences for every client. Making good on the spa’s name, they strip away signs of aging with a comprehensive roster of services, eliminating age-inducing stress with massage, and buffing wrinkles with medical-grade facials, microdermabrasion, and resurfacing treatments. In addition to cleansing skin, they help keep epidermises smooth through hair-removal treatments that uproot fuzz with techniques such as body sugaring, electrolysis, and waxing. Whether returning smoother complexions to faces with IPL acne-clearing treatments, or harvesting wax to make homemade vinyl records during ear candling, the meticulous pamper practitioners aim to keep clients relaxed.
For more than 30 years, Phaze One Day Spa has welcomed clients into its space for everything from haircuts to full-body massages. Guests can peruse a collection of scarves and jewelry as they wait for their appointment with the hairstylist, or they can take a gander at the selection of OPI nail polishes for their upcoming manicure, pedicure, or polish-wrestling event. Beyond the main floor, soft lighting blankets the spa’s private treatment rooms, creating a relaxing oasis for a wax, Swedish massage, or custom facial fortified by Murad skincare products.
Inside Nine Dragons Foot Finesse's bright, fuchsia room, practitioners target acupuncture points with a Chinese modality that has been passed down for 5,000 years. The philosophy of reflexology theorizes that all parts of the body can be affected by target points on the feet, activating self-healing, increasing metabolism, and heightening blood circulation without the need for repeated viewings of The Birds. While each session focuses on the feet, the whole body gets attention from the therapist, including the head, back, and legs.
