Tucked away inside the chic Jefferson Hill shops in a Greek Revival mansion, owner Rosalyn Morris guides the team of beauticians at Studio 10. Like the plot of Face/Off, duality defines the salon's nailcare services. Two European licensed beauticians pamper both hands and feet as their owners lounge in two pedicure thrones and at two manicure stations.
Despite a long list of beautifying hair services and soothing massages, the most important sense at C'zar Salon-Spa is not sight or touch, but smell. Stemming from natural Aveda products, aromas drift throughout the space, tinting the air with rosemary, peppermint, and lavender scents that evoke pastoral scenes pulled straight out of the organic farms on which many of their ingredients grew. The Stress-Fix line of lotions—whose fragrances help to reduce anxiety—cloaks hands and feet in sage during specialty mani-pedis, and customized blends of essential oils augment Elemental Nature massages and facials.
Plants play a role in even the most detailed procedures at C'zar Salon-Spa. Flowers contribute extracts to the salon's cosmetics, and Nufree hair-removal formulas provide a botanical alternative to wax that's more gentle than tweezing with a venus flytrap. Although they don't incorporate leafy greens, wellness treatments such as acupuncture and cupping strive to round out makeovers by goading the body’s healing processes. For special events, the staff can accommodate groups inside the calming venue or transport their perfumed practices to a specified location.
At Eden Salon & Spa, guests sip on drafts of water, coffee, or tea as they wait to meet with stylists to shape their hair, skin, or nails into a new, revitalizing look. Along with hairstyling and color treatments such as highlights or eyebrow tints, the staff specializes in a full suite of mani-pedi services, from applying acrylics to coating fingernails or toe hubcaps with chip-resistant Shellac polish.
At Empress Nails II, vitality and variety go hand in hand. All told, the salon's technicians specialize in no less than nine forms of pedicures, which incorporate everything from hot stone therapy to sugar and honey scrubs or glycolic acid. Manicures, too, offer plenty of options, such as acrylic nail applications or coats of no-chip polish to keep nails from being eroded by running faucets. Empress Nails also provides full-body and foot massages and facials that can soften blemishes and bring out youthful hues.
Maybe it's something about her warm presence, or her collection of makeup awards. But when a client wanted to teach her blind mother how to apply her own makeup, she went to Clarice Loiacono. Owner of Clarice's Creating Beautiful Looks, Clarice combines her experience in pharmaceuticals with her passion for makeup and skincare. It's the challenge of using her knowledge of compounds and botanicals to achieve beauty goals that Clarice loves. "You're really making people feel good … [It's] like therapy."
Within a stately cream-and-scarlet home in Wheaton—close to Clarice's high school and family—she employs a staff of trusted aestheticians to help her administer customized facials and free follow-up appointments to track complexion improvement. Bea, who Clarice has known since grade school, began working at Clarice's as an intern. After earning experience in the industry at other spas and successfully beautifying gargoyles hoping to catch a special pigeon's eye, Bea returned to Clarice's to revamp skin with products Loiacono herself helped beta test.
