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.
The seasoned staff at Carmen Nicole's Spa & Laser encourages relaxation with a host of beautifying spa services. Digit doctors dole out a multitude of specialized nail services, from classic mani-pedis to more advanced treatments, such as lavender manicures and chip-free treatments with OPI polishes. Carmen Nicole's Spa & Laser eschews the use of credo blades and provides sanitary conditions by using UV-sterilized equipment and promptly providing germs with very tiny eviction notices. The spa’s six different massage methods encourage one-hour getaways, and airbrush tanning covers skin with streak-free base tans. Aestheticians also administer a variety of facials and medical treatments, such as microdermabrasions and targeted facials that combine massages and masks.
For more than 10 years, the staff of Techniques Salon—tucked away in Uptown Park Ridge—has kept a loyal band of clients beautified with customized aesthetic services coupled with high-end haircare and skincare products. Inside the beauty haven, five stylists scurry around the salon floor, tending to manes with traditional hair services including cutting hair with shears or coloring strands with permanent markers. Aestheticians softly step around a treatment room as they rejuvenate epidermises with microdermabrasions, facials, and waxing services, and nail techs strike up conversations with clients as they indulge their put-upon paws with mani-pedi treatments.
Inspired by her daughters’ dissatisfaction with costly visits to the salon, owner Farzana Jazeh opened Jazeh La Belle motivated by a quintessentially mom-like goal to make her children happy. By carefully selecting skin therapists and eyebrow-threading technicians, Farzana ensures her staff is top notch, not only proficient in their craft, but also excellent communicators with or without the assistance of hand puppets. The spa specializes in treatments for the face, revitalizing skin with natural and organic products and augmenting the expressive tendrils framing the eyes with extensions and tinting.
Wanda Enoch has kept a steady hand through more than 30,000 permanent-makeup applications. Years of experience with the manual pen, electric pen, and coil machine allow her to accentuate features without disrupting the face's harmony.
Enoch shares her wisdom through newspaper articles and lectures read from notes tattooed on her colleagues' foreheads. The Chicago Tribune has featured her for her work with scar camouflage and repigmentation for burn survivors, breast-cancer patients, and people with cleft palates.
From the first snip of hair to the final cleanse of an herbal massage, the focus at Meera’s Beauty Salon is on making its clients look better. To that end, the staff members offer hair, makeup, and skincare services with the aid of products from Redken, Shahnaz Herbal, and Estée Lauder. Services include perms or highlights, which redefine clients' personal style, as well as facials or henna tattoos, which fill in the peripherals with radiant color or unique designs.
