Trained hands are pretty good at soothing overworked muscles, but at Dolce Vita Day Spa, they have some extra help. During Vichy hydrotherapy treatments, high-pressure streams of water invigorate the entire body as guests relax on a table, a more comfortable alternative to napping at a picnic on a cloudy day. It's typically the finishing touch on spa days that might include more-traditional massages, facials with Arbonne products, and special treatments for the hands and feet. Plant-inspired art, an indoor "garden" area, and an easy-to-reach location in downtown LaGrange make a trip to Dolce Vita relaxing from arrival on.
Red Carpet Lashes' name is no joke. The lash studio's creative director, Beata Flatley, first perfected her extension-applying technique in Hollywood, where she prepped stars for red carpet events.?Today, she meticulously creates the same movie star looks for Chicagoans.?
She and her team beautify lashlines with extensions in various styles?some create a cat-eye look, others add a vampy curl, and all last, with proper maintenance, up to two months.
It?s not the lime-green walls, polished hardwood floors, and sleek black furnishings that steal the spotlight at Michael D Anthony's Salon?it?s the clients who walk out with fully transformed looks. Stylists use Redken products to add subtle highlights or dramatic colors, and manicurists meticulously trim, hacksaw, shape, and polish nails. Clients can add perfect eyebrow arches to their impromptu makeovers with a quick wax.
Unless you're one of the lucky humans who can age backwards, your body needs regular maintenance if it's to last. That's why the skilled aestheticians at Dolce Vita Day Spa keep the mind and body tuned up with rejuvenating and beautifying body treatments. Clients can opt for voluminous lash extensions or retreat to a private room for Swedish or hot-stone bodywork from licensed massage therapist Justyna Gomula.
At The Lashe Spot, a team of highly skilled eyelash technicians led by owner Melinda Rodriguez help their clients break free from the hassles of clumpy, high-maintenance mascara. By placing a single extension on each individual natural eyelash, they instantly create long, luscious lashes with natural-looking volume. Eyelash extensions range from dramatic cat-eyes to natural looks to fit each client?s personal style. Most looks require upkeep every two to three weeks. The Lashe Spot also offers a training program for aspiring lash technicians who can then go on to use Lashe Spot?s proprietary lash extension products and techniques and encourages interested candidates to inquire when visting. Waxing and nail care services are also available.
