Tara Weld opened Hair Divine, LLC after she trained with the Paul Mitchell education system. It’s since become an established salon emphasizing modern styles—the professional staff members share 24 years of experience in the beauty industry and they channel every day of that time into each of their hair and body enhancements. Using KMS California and Paul Mitchell products, they can craft and style haircuts that flaunt vibrant colors like the king of Candyland flaunts his crown made of Skittles. You can also head to Hair Divine for make-up and waxing services; Tara, herself a licensed massage therapist as well as stylist, performs Swedish, hot stone, and prenatal massages.
After a free beauty consultation, the three tonsorial virtuosos at this Plainfield salon, located near the Metropolis Mall, can energize tired tresses with a cut ($28–$40) and 10-minute custom color ($55–$75) that complement a client's personal style. Shaggy heads can also opt for a 90-minute Brazilian Blowout, in which the loving embrace of special proteins will soothe the hair shaft's worries and cares, as well as its frizziness, for up to three months.
Showcase Hair Studio's stylists use Paul Mitchell products in haircare services for women, men, and children. In addition to cuts and styling, the staff adds vibrancy to hairdos with highlights and color and waxes eyebrows, chins, and lips.
The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
After stylists Cathy Sturm and Angi Snodgrass opened their salon, they dubbed it the Cass & Company Salon to foreground the importance of their entire team. The tight-knit crew, designated level 4 to level 1 stylists, hone their techniques at workshops held across the country and even teach new talent on site.
Within the chic space, the stylists cut, color, and retexturize locks, fortifying strands with helpings of earth-friendly Aveda or Gage for Men products. They do their work next to the salon’s vibrant tangerine walls and under a ceiling lofty enough to allow someone to fly a kite beneath it. Elsewhere in the salon, nail technicians perform thorough manicures, and massage therapists administer deep-tissue massages in private rooms.

Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. Her subsequent studies led her to create Target Metabolism, a health and wellness company that preaches weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric accountability. Here, registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and massage therapists offer treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process.
