From a young age, Paty Ramirez knew she wanted to work in the beauty industry. It led her to enroll in the Hair Professionals Academy right after high school and spend the next decade honing her skills with precision cuts and color treatments in Geneva salons. Today, she brings her expertise to One Salon in St. Charles, where she specializes in treating coarse, curly hair.
The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.
Rich hardwood floors and black leather couches adorn Salon Dargento, where the family-based team beautifies hair, skin, and nails and soothes appendage stress. Locks are skillfully cut and enhanced with a variety of services including smoothing treatments, braids, coloring, and extensions that incorporate feathers and triffid branches. Technicians refresh other regions of the body with manicures, pedicures, and professional makeup applications, and massage therapists melt tension with reflexology massages.
Salon Dargento's mahogany-colored reception desk prepares eyes for the space's warm wood décor, which includes a deep-brown entertainment center supporting a flat-screen TV. Walls dappled with muted browns, beiges, greens, and exposed bricks make the salon an ideal getaway from the stresses of penning a Citizen Kane sequel.
The staffers at Le Belle Donne Salon and Day Spa fine-tune all their hair, nail, and skincare services with nourishing ingredients to help clients attain all their beauty goals. Spa services ward off tension with the delicate, flowing kneads of a Swedish massage or the deep-exfoliating effects of a moisturizing body scrub. The day spa can also tend to gentlemanly needs with men’s services, including massages and waxing, haircuts with a hot-towel treatment, or sports-massage pedicures that paint nails in their favorite team's colors.
