The staff at Divine Hair and Color Salon—located inside Bella Donna—enriches natural beauty by updating hairdos, grooming fingers and toes, and extracting hairs with waxing services. Stylists add volume and drama to locks with extensions that range from 100% human hair to feathers, ribbon, or tinsel, which helps clients fill in if Christmas trees get stage fright. For coloring services, Rusk hair products pack marine minerals to simultaneously change hair hues and give strands a healthy shine.
For many, shedding unwanted pounds can be daunting and time-consuming. But at Intelligent Lipo of Orland Park, it’s neither, thanks to its i-Lipo treatments. The treatments effectively zap and dissipate fat cells without surgery, pain, or rituals involving genies and protein powder. Administered by board-certified Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Robert William Wrona, i-Lipo can help to shrink clients up to two dress sizes after eight sessions—in conjunction with exercise—while also smoothing their cellulite and boosting their confidence to streak at an upcoming local sporting event.
Toy Box Connection aims to help all children receive the gift of a toy or a book year-round, serving as the connection between the families and businesses that donate these items and the children who need them. After accepting new and gently used toys, Toy Box Connection sorts and cleans them at its warehouse, then redistributes the toys and books to its partner nonprofit organizations. From there, the items are given directly to the children in need. Special projects include donating toys to children in the hospital, families of returning troops, and children in special needs or foster camps.
The walls are watching you––or so it would seem. Framed photos of eyes laden with long, voluminous lashes can be seen throughout each Xtina’s Lash Xtensions' salon. This is the plight of owner Christina Wakulich who decks out eyelid rims with synthetic- and real-mink lash extensions with the help of her highly trained staff. Full sets include range from 45 to 65 lashes per eye, fostering a sultry look for six to eight weeks without the mess of mascara.
The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
