Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers at five participating Chicago-area locations. Wild wigs are brought to bear by highly trained hair tamers who also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering clients' questions about hair trends and maintenance. A socially responsible company, Great Clips also hosts haircut-a-thons, bake sales, and baked haircut sale-a-thons to benefit charities, including the Children's Miracle Network of hospitals and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.
The staffers at Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails know that a grumbling stomach can ruin a relaxing spa day as surely as it can ruin a congressional hearing on manners. That’s why they've designed the six-hour Day of Beauty to include a light lunch in between an aromatherapy facial, mani-pedi, shampoo and style, and makeup application. But even with a meal break, this package still can't claim to be a comprehensive survey of the studio's specialties, which also include Swedish and sports massages, bikini waxing, and tanning in a standup booth.
For nearly two decades, Cut & Color Studio Hair Design has lived up to its name, treating every haircut as more of an artistic endeavor than a simple trim. To enhance their scissor-borne designs, stylists at the unisex salon imbue hair with flattering shades by using TIGI hair color, along with applying natural-looking Remy extensions from So.Cap. in an array of brilliant and sometimes edgy hues. Clients can add faux diamonds or feathers to push their look even further or finally win over a beloved peacock. Beyond hair services, the salon also offers waxing, eyelash extensions, and makeup applications for special occasions.
Hair takes the spotlight at Hello, Gorgeous. Located in Sola Salons, the private salon suite allows the stylist to keep her focus on the client?and specifically, the client's hair.

In her years as a permanent and semi-permanent makeup expert, Suzie Kim became disillusioned with the products and techniques available to her?many left drastic, unnatural results. She eventually discovered semi-permanent makeup; instead of depositing harsh tattoo inks deep into sensitive facial skin, an entirely permanent technique allows the design to eventually fade into a bluish-gray hue or a vintage ribbon that says "Mom," Now, Suzie grants her clients more defined eyes, eyebrows, and lips, shortening their morning routines and leaving their faces radiant.
