The stylists and aestheticians at Magic Scissors Coiffures & Boutique beautify clients from head to toe. Skincare experts use antioxidant-infused vitamin facials and ultrasonic skin scrubbing to reveal healthy glows. On the salon floor, stylists update looks with everything from cuts and color to Brazilian Blowout treatments—infusing strands with frizz-free shine. But the feel-good vibes don’t end with a new 'do. The salon donates clippings to a charitable project, where hair’s oil-retaining properties are put to use in cleaning up oil spills.
Flower murals and rose-colored walls draw guests into The Pink Nail & Spa like honeybees into a garden; cushy leather seats await them, as inviting as lush flowers. Guests plop comfortably into the chairs during manicures, pedicures, and waxing services. Creative Spa manicures and pedicures condition skin with elixirs infused with citrus oils, antioxidants, and vitamin E. Nail technicians also pamper the hands and feet with relaxing soaks and moisturizing treatments. During regular spa mani-pedis, the techs knead palms and soles and slough off expired skin with gentle exfoliation tools. Clients can also opt to pamper their whole bodies with more than a half-dozen types of massage therapy, including Swedish and deep-tissue treatments that melt pain, tension, and subcutaneous cheddar wheels.
At Northshore Nails and Day Spa, staff members mix together delicious-sounding extracts of pineapple, papaya, and calendula, but not for an exotic dinner appetizer. Instead, they use the ingredients for the spa’s anti-acne facial, a combination of natural extracts that soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and slow oil production. The one-hour treatment is just one of the spa's purifying skincare services, which range from regenerating body scrubs to moisturizing facials and chemical peels. Along with skincare, the staff members beautify clients with threading and waxing hair removal, nailcare, massages, and spray tans. Clients receive their services amid a relaxing, earth-toned atmosphere decorated with plants, nature-themed wall murals, and talking mirrors that boost confidence through excessive compliments.
The manicurists at Lu's Nails Boutique embellish finger-sheaths with a palette of professional OPI and Essie nail polish. Crimson pedicure chairs support reclining patrons, whose eyes wander between lemon-meringue walls, leafy potted plants, and mini statues of Buddha offering knowing winks.
Recognized by Chicago magazine for their excellence in both short haircuts and color, Pascal Pour Elle's style masters redo 'dos and refresh visages with a parade of salon and spa services. Those who are tired of picking boa constrictors out of their overgrown follicular jungles can get their locks trimmed into fabulous new fashion. Next, the noninvasive microdermabrasion facial pits gentle exfoliation against weary old skin cells in an unfair fight fixed by dermal gamblers. The vulnerable cells are then hauled away in a suction process that also promotes the growth of healthy newborn replacements, leaving skin with a smoother texture and more even tone.
