A cadre of accomplished students mans hp: the college's three Chicago-area salons, where they learn the beauty trade while enhancing client appearances for less than at standard studios. Founded in 1979, the college instructs fledgling stylists in the latest trends and aesthetic remedies with products from Moroccanoil, Wella, and Dermalogica. At all three locations, sleek black styling chairs contrast with colorful bottles of hair products and OPI nail polish set amid the comfort of plush pedicure chairs. As students ply their skills on ravishing haircuts and clarifying facials, aesthetics pupils use carefully blended botanicals to add aroma, hydration, and palm-sized zen gardens to manicures and pedicures.
Like many beauty professionals, Taromina Perkins has a handle on hair. But instead of beautifying heads with blowouts, color treatments, and cuts, the licensed aesthetician focuses on hair growing from the eyebrows downward. Eyelashes adopt a more dramatic pop with Reese Robert lash extensions, which come in three tiers ranging from natural-looking to glamorous and, unlike mascara, are waterproof and smudge-proof. Eyelashes may also be tinted to match newly groomed eyebrows, which Taromina custom shapes to flatter each client's differing bone structure and varying appreciation for Groucho Marx. To whisk away hair from the rest of body, she uses an organic wax to leave lips, chins, bellies, and backs smooth for several weeks, and she also offers waxing for bikini lines, Brazilian bikini lines, and other hard-to-reach spots.
