The interior of Hair Flair could almost be a hairstyling museum. Next to the window, an antique perm machine dangles its medieval tentacles over a mannequin's head. On the wall nearby hang cutting shears and a blow dryer Ben Franklin could have used.
But these vintage curios stay right where they are: on display. Hair Flair's fashion-forward stylists, Wendy Boyk and Laurie Shoupe, rely on modern hairstyling techniques when making clients look good. Together, they ply their beautifying trade for women, men, and children, performing precision cuts, texturizing highlights, and hydrating conditioning services.
Salon Diva's staffers cater to practically every beauty need, offering hair- and nailcare alongside waxing and makeup applications. And thanks to a newly minted partnership with The Cinnamon Tree, they've expanded their pampering services. Now customers can enjoy relaxing massages—including therapeutic, hot stone, and deep tissue—as well as a selection of facials.
Always with one eye focused on the evolving techniques and trends of hairstyling, Robert Jeffrey's haircare professionals help clients design a flattering new look that complements their features as well as their sense of style. A simple trim can add layers and shape to a hairdo, although highlights, deep conditioners, and texturizing treatments can create more dramatic changes by adding depth, dimension, and healthy luster to the strands.
Beyond hairstyling, Robert Jeffrey caters to its clients' needs by offering a variety of classically indulgent spa services, such as personalized facials, waxing sessions, and makeup-application lessons that teach patrons how Fun Dip powder can double as rouge in a pinch. The staff members' passion for effective care also extends to the product-display shelves, which feature the salon's exclusive, eponymous line of shampoos and conditioners designed for simple at-home use.
Parto Naderi's team of pampering practitioners and creative stylists hone each client's inner and outer beauty with a robust menu of salon and spa services. Designer haircuts, colorings, and texturizing treatments for men, women, and children are enhanced with popular product brands such as Bumble and bumble., L'Oreal, and Kerastase, and a slew of skin-sloughing services rejuvenate visages, birthday suits, and Presidents’ Day leisurewear with Dermalogica solutions. Massage therapists alleviate aches with five different kneading modalities, from the popular Swedish style to more intense deep-tissue treatments. Digits don OPI polish during manicure and pedicure sessions, which can join up with a massage, hairstyling, and makeup application to create a truly indulgent day-spa package.
The diverse team of aestheticians, stylists, and massage therapists at Elizabeth Adam Salon and Day Spa combats bad hair days and dry spells in beauty sleep with a full slate of services for men and women. In a serene spa that towers above the teeming Michigan Avenue thoroughfare, practiced hands beautify and revitalize weary physiques and gargoyles on lunch break with treatments such as laser hair removal, keratin smoothing therapies, and nutrition programs. The distinguished spa's facials, which treat visages to more than 20 styles of epidermal rejuvenation, have been featured in both Chicago magazine and Today's Chicago Woman magazine, and the delights of its pedicures have been highlighted in the glossy pages of Allure.
In her more than 17-year career, Melinda Rodriguez has participated in fashion shows for Nicole Miller and Armani, and crafted styles for such notable personalities as actress Jane Seymour and Latin-pop singer Chayanne. To expand the reach of her red-carpet styles, she founded Roque Beauty Lounge, a spacious salon and spa where a team of energetic style experts draw on experience in Chicago, Miami, and London to craft face-flattering looks that adhere to the salon's shared creative vision. Here, three tiers of stylists perform services at prices that match their individual experience level while using products by Moroccanoil. Roque Beauty Lounge also houses The Lashe Spot, where lash technicians accentuate eyes by shaping brows and amplify lashes with synthetic extensions.
