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.
The threading specialists at MinShu's Threaded Eyebrows possess more than half a century of experience and utilize an ancient South Asian technique to free facial pastures of unwanted hair. After cat's-cradling pieces of natural thread into an intricate formation, a threader will roll the looped cotton along clients' brows to emancipate hair follicles from a tightly browed grasp. In just about 15 minutes, the procedure can precisely sculpt eyebrows into mischievous arcs, complacent lines, or surrealistic M.C. Escher staircases without the use of needles, chemicals, lasers, or hot wax. Patrons can expect to maintain their newly styled, peach-fuzz-free vision protectors for as long as two to four weeks.
Megan Renee Beck and April Felty of Rebel Angels Hair Studio add feather hair extensions to their existing plethora of colorizing and keratin treatments. Upon choosing their desired plumage, clients placidly recline for 30 minutes as a beauty specialist crimps the adornments into place, allowing them to be styled along with the natural strands. Maintenance includes a one-time resetting or removal of the quills for clients in need of general upkeep or a reprieve from roosting cockatiels.
A young boy sits atop a yellow motorcycle, his hair falling in shaggy wisps across his forehead. He looks down at the speedometer and makes gleeful revving noises, his focus on the machine rendering him oblivious to the woman quickly snipping off his hair. So transpires a typical salon appointment at Shear Fun, where a team of friendly stylists grooms boys and girls alike within an imaginative, colorfully decorated space.
The cheery yellow walls and smiling staff coax forth smiles from even the most apprehensive of young visitors, making them comfortable as they snuggle into vehicle-shaped chairs. The team performs various salon services, including styling hair, installing feather extensions, and bestowing first haircuts upon youngsters.

After stylists Angi Snodgrass and Cathy Sturm 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 Benniefactor, Reference of Sweden, and Gage for Men products. They do their work next to the salon?s sleek grey walls and under a ceiling lofty enough to allow someone to fly a kite beneath it. Elsewhere in the salon, technicians perform body waxes, and massage therapists administer deep-tissue massages in private rooms.
Cosmedic Lazer Medspa's team of technicians utilizes Candela's GentleLase Pro to deliver a range of aesthetic treatments.

Located within a sleek, modern space, the spa also draws on its host clinic's medical expertise to create customized weight-loss programs.
