Offering top-notch beautification services, Victoria's Hair Works helps visitors acquire a sleek silhouette, leaving filamentous biomaterials sulking outside skin walls like yesterday's milk bottles. There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxing maidens at Victoria's. Spiff up facial fuzz with eyebrow waxing ($11), lip waxing ($11), or a combo eyebrow-lip treatment ($20), or impress newfound, unfound, or rebound friends with an aerodynamic half-leg wax ($35) or full-leg wax (starting at $55). You can also fire a barrage of buff to the far nether-reaches of your bionic galaxy with bikini ( $25+) and Brazilian waxing ($50) options.
When our head hurts, the first thing we do is rub it. The same goes for our lower backs, shoulders, and joints. The desire to massage areas of pain may be the oldest and most basic form of medicine, and professional massage therapists such as Lenny Gage of The Massage Masters train extensively to understand how touch helps stimulate healing. Lenny takes this understanding to the next level by augmenting massages with reflexology sessions, which carry therapy to the body's deepest internal organs and utility closets through the soles of the feet.
At MJ's & Company, seven beauty specialists serve up hair services and relaxing massages. Stylists and aestheticians dabbles in cuts and color as well as facials and waxing. Massage therapist Cherie, on the other hand, specializes in multiple massage modalities, including trigger point, Swedish, and deep tissue. Each specialist works independently, and clients can book their appointments online.
With 14 years of experience and a scholarly stint in Germany on her cosmetology resume, Leyla of Leyla’s Hair and Nails has the background required to both supervise staff members and participate in the beautification of languid locks. Strands relish a nourishing deep-conditioning treatment for one hour before precise shears prune dead ends. Pate landscapers then use dexterous hands to style and weed scalp-lawns. In two hours, full highlights add dimension and vibrancy to pelts, brightening them so that clients can find them at night.
“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.
At Frankie's, empty stomachs fuel up on eclectic menu selections including hot dogs, sausages and sandwiches made to order using locally sourced ingredients. For hot dogs, teeth sink through Chicago-style fixings into an all-beef link kept from inflating into a life preserver by the constraints of a poppy-seed bun. Sandwich savants layer italian beef on top of fresh french bread, top the meat in a choice of mozzarella, sweet peppers, and hot giardiniera, and then deliver it to taste buds alongside a mild italian sausage. Patrons turn toward the restaurant's chalkboard menu to order up a Meatball Sammich and scribble out calculations for the gravitational pull of a Portabella Sammich, which lures mouths from their meat trance with a marinated mushroom cap topped in tomato and cucumber.
