Rockstar Salon and Spa offers a bevy of beauty services to help its clients reach red-carpet readiness. A Brazilian blowout treatment (starting at $350—extremely long or thick hair may incur extra charges) de-frizzes noodle nests by adding protective protein to the hair. Wavy hair will appear healthier and naturally less curly, while curly hair will see reduced frizzle. If your headhide is in tip-top shape, opt instead for the second deal—down-and-out digits can be pampered with the spa manicure ($20) and pedicure ($45). Rockstar Salon's aestheticians will treat worn-out leg-ends to a soothing foot soak and shed unwanted layers through an exfoliating scrub. Each toe-topper and finger-ender will receive professional shaping, cuticle care, and a fresh coat of polish, with excess extremity tension released through a hand and foot massage. The one-hour European facial ($90) gives pores a deep steam clean, exfoliation, and a mask customized to the skin's wants, needs, and career aspirations. Finish off your luxurious lavishing with the 30-minute Massage a Trois treatment ($45), a much-needed kneading of the neck, shoulders, and head for relief from sinus congestion, headache tension, and undercirculation. A complimentary shampoo is included in this treatment.
Ellis Hair Salon makes coloring treatments a priority. Headed by colorist Manisha?who's been styling and coloring hair since 2004?Ellis uses a number of organic products from All-Nutrient Organics. A natural base of vegetable oil and keratin creates new hair colors without a reliance on harsh chemicals or magic markers that smell weird.

The full-service Beautique Salon and Spa invites guests to relax on curved couches, on leather salon chairs, or at tiled pedicure stations lined with pillows. Then, stylists and technicians attend to their overall beauty and well-being with haircuts, highlights, makeup applications, and soothing nail services.
Stylists at Elite Edge Hair Salon cut and color the manes of male and female clients, realizing the style goals laid out in a complimentary personal consultation. Behind their sleek leather styling chairs, stylists carefully weave So.Cap hair extensions in more than 81 different colors and three different textures, which last for up to six months. They also coat unruly strands with keratin straightening treatments, which work to keep hair as smooth as the freestyle raps of an audiobook narrator.

Leo Passage came to the United States in 1958, traveling with his wife Lenie and pair of shears. Leo was a rising star in the European hairdressing world, and had already gained noticed for his cuts that were a little more creative than most. He drew inspiration from the Bahaus principles of art and design as a starting point for his hair styles. His creative approach to personal style won him 95 hair dressing competitions and the title of World Supreme Champion and Hairdresser of the Year at New York's famed International Beauty Show in 1961. A year later, Leo decided to pass on his knowledge to a new generation of hairdressers, and founded the first Pivot Point Academy on the north side of Chicago.
Now, more than 50 years after its founding, Pivot Point's schools still embrace Leo's creative vision. Instructors arm students with top notch hair cutting and aesthetic skills, as well as an impeccable eye of style. The schools invite clients to come experience just how talented their students are with services such as haircuts, manicures, and pedicures, the cure for a listless foot.
