The staffers at Jean Marie Salon believe that the journey toward beauty should be a relaxing one, and that is evident in each of their treatments. They let clients pick an Aveda Essentials aroma before every mani-pedi, which includes a massage enhanced by a custom hydrating lotion. They also welcome clients onto their tables for soothing hot-stone massages and reflexology treatments. A sense of leisure and escape pervades the salon and spa, where even haircuts and coloring treatments include aroma-infused heated towels and scalp, hand, and arm massages to keep clients from repeatedly waving at their own reflection.
While there are many styles of massage to choose from, the licensed massage therapists at Elements Massage blend a medley of kneading techniques to ease away tension. Their four-level approach helps to cater sessions to each individual client. Patrons looking for a light and relaxing massage receive a level 1 massage, whereas those with more muscle tension can opt for the medium pressure of a level 2 or 3, and clients bearing especially tangled muscle fibers or especially heavy jetpacks can find relief with the deeper manipulations and trigger-point work of a level 4.
Open for more than 22 years, Perry George Salon & Spa stakes its reputation on a team of stylists and aestheticians that wield international training experience and an eye for detail. Armed with Bioelements products, skin experts exact everything from facials to waxing treatments with conscientious aplomb. Stylists likewise tend to hair and nail technicians gussy up accusatory pointing fingers. The salon and spa also bundles its services into special-event packages, pairing mani-pedis with makeup for brides-to-be and Swedish massage with a businessman's facial for gents.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
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.
Avanzato Salon and Spa's hair designers, led by owner Peggy Martinek, sculpt hair for any occasion, whether it's attached to a head or not. They craft and repair wigs, apply extensions and eyelashes, and, of course, cut and style hair. They also remove hair with traditional facial waxing treatments or hot shaves for men. They round out their range of services with manicures and skin treatments and facials using products from brands such Dermalogica.
