The team at Hair Clippers Salon has the expertise to make clients' beauty dreams come true. At this Redken- and Pureology-certified salon, they draw on years of styling experience to provide haircuts and coloring for men and women, as well as such specialty services as perms, updos, and keratin treatments. Senior stylist Jason does double-duty grooming nails, while fellow senior stylist Nicole provides sleek cuts and and even sleeker waxing services, all while conversing fluently in Russian, Lithuanian, or Polish. At neighboring chairs, Paul Mitchell-trained stylists Ilyana and Alicia sculpt coifs into flattering shapes.
With more than 35 experienced beauticians on hand, Beauty Company of Chicago is more than equipped to beautify whatever their clients desire. At salon stations awash with ample light and leafy plants, stylists craft creative cuts, dimension-boosting color, and texturizing perms with trained and artistic hands. The same enthusiasm spills over across the polished wood floors to the nail stations, where technicians dote over fingers, toes, and lucky rabbits’ feet with manicures and pedicures. And if clients want to wind down after sprucing up, cozy massage tables in candlelit rooms await them—along with a massage therapist who soothes tight muscles with tailored strokes and firm pressure. After every visit, guests are welcome to peruse the salon’s store, where products from Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and OPI are available for purchase.
Though it’s been open fewer than three years, Glimmer Salon has already expanded four times—a testament to its rapidly growing clientele and penchant for reinvention. Throughout the sprawling, open space, a team of amiable mane masters snips, colors, and styles strands to each client's specifications. The staff also performs services such as smoothing treatments, facial waxing, and massages. Warm earth tones blanket the walls and complement the sleek hardwood floors, and high-quality hair products line the glass shelves, plotting to swan dive into the coiffures of clients passing by.

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.
Modern lights hang from the ceiling like glowing martini glasses, illuminating vibrant purple walls and polished wood floors. Amid these jazzy accents, skilled stylists create bold cuts and color treatments to fit facial features and unique lifestyles. Clients can also request keratin straightening or nix unwanted fuzz during a swift waxing session.
