Licensed aesthetician Amy Culver believes in educating her clients about skincare so that they can maintain healthy skin at home. Though she creates a relaxing environment with soothing music, flickering candles, and a shoulder massage, Amy cares most about the efficacy of her facials. To deliver results, she exclusively uses Dermalogica Professional skincare products . Also a certified Cry Baby lash specialist, Amy applies the semi-permanent mascara to create the appearance of added volume, length, and curl; the waterproof mascara lasts about two weeks without smearing or selling your eyelids as ad space. Amy uses Berins Wax for full-body waxes and sculpts custom arches during eyebrow waxes .:m]]
Cosmetologist Nicole loved the look of a natural tan, but wasn?t happy with the damage it could do to skin. Lucky for her, she discovered spray tanning and promptly opened Glam and Glo to provide the skin-safe bronzing service to others. She custom blends her organic solution, taking into consideration each client?s skin tone and envisioned shade of bronze. She then airbrushes the color on by hand to ensure even, full coverage regardless of clients? existing color or if they're still factory sealed in plastic packaging.

As part of the Aveda network, Persuasive Looks Salon infuses treatments for skin and hair with largely organic, botanically based formulas. Guided by a commitment to environmental responsibility and ayurvedic principles, Aveda products are principally derived from essential oils and raw herbs, at least 80% of which are certified organic. The salon's licensed skin therapists not only revitalize complexions with Aveda tonics and rapid smiling drills, but kick off every session with an Aveda Elemental Nature skin analysis that informs the creation of a custom treatment.
Stylists also use the brand's formulas as part of their arsenal for complete hair overhaul, which includes extensions and both Japanese and keratin straightening systems.

The airy, 2,900-square-foot facility is located within an hour of Chicago by car and about two hours by inner tube.
