Growing up, Lindsay Kamphuis would grab perm rods and supplies for her hairstylist mother while watching her process up close. At Lindsay Styles—inside B'Lovely salon—Kamphuis brings her childhood dream of following in her mother's footsteps to life. Her extensive services include haircuts and color, styling and updos, keratin smoothing treatments, and gel-polish manicures.
Chandeliers and linen-clad tables lend a bit of glitz to the warm, welcoming Old Town Serbian Gourmet Restaurant. The menu that gets passed out in that friendly atmosphere features flavorful homestyle Serbian cuisine that unites the Midwest with the Old World, promising a smorgasbord of traditional Serbian stews, dumplings, pilafs, and cutlet entrees crafted from locally farmed produce. The spread ranges from multi-course feasts of chevapchichi and wholesome meals of fresh fish or stuffed cabbage. That diverse selection allows the menu to captivate the palate with dishes that are simultaneously exotic and familiar, similar to having George Clooney move in above the garage.
Laura at Luxe The Salon wields top-shelf products to beautify clients. The spa’s stylist, Laura Filip, blends organic color and styling products as she dolls up tresses with precision cuts and coloring treatments. She saves the most organic product—her own hands—for her best work, expertly crafting updos abundant with curls and twists. By using these natural formulations, Laura helps maintain the overall health of hair as well as follicles' integrity without subjecting them to an ethics lecture. This dedication to quality service and products extends to spa treatments as well, deploying Eminence skincare products to brighten complexions and NovaLash extensions to define lash lines.
With a mother who was a stylist and owner of two salons, Tyler grew up in the industry. He built his repertoire of styling techniques while training under Salon Thor’s senior stylists, and now spends his days cutting new 'dos. He also colors hair with highlights or an ombre effect, and smoothes frizz using keratin treatments.
“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.
