Typically performed entirely separate from one another, tanning and laundry can now be enjoyed in one facility thanks to Laundry & Tan Connection. The company’s collection of tanning beds grants customers a wide range of skin hues, from sun kissed to deep bronze, and its VersaSpa spray-tan booths deliver a tan that lasts seven days. Meanwhile, high-capacity washers and dryers whir as they cleanse clothes, their gentle humming reminding tanners that they’ll never again have to choose between cleaning a shirt or getting a tan.
The licensed massage therapists at New U Massage Therapy specialize in soothing achy muscles with their therapeutic bodywork. Clients can solicit a muscle mender's expertise for sports techniques, relaxation-inducing Swedish strokes, or more focused deep-tissue techniques; all of these may be paired with add-ons such as hot towels or essential oils. The studio also offers body waxing and eyelash extension services.
The only thing Debra Elliott loves more than the Indianapolis Colts is cutting hair. That’s why for 13 years, she and her crew of skilled stylists have rehabbed tresses with a full-service menu of cut and coloring treatments. The salon also employs highly trained aestheticians to perform such therapeutic services as spa facials, massages, and setting fire to your boss’ desk.
On a trip to Chicago from his native Italy, young Mario Tricoci changed his life forever. The fledgling hairdresser stopped in at a prestigious salon, where he impressed the owner with his impeccable display of skill and landed himself a job. The next six decades brought strings of industry awards and the opening of his very own salon, which soon exploded into 26 locations in four states. With his styling prowess proven both to the industry and to the clients he encountered each day, the coiffeur decided to share his gift with others. In 2004, he established Tricoci University to foster a new generation of cosmetologists and spa technicians trained to thrive in the luxury-spa industry.
Throughout the Midwest, Tricoci protégés study a rigorous curriculum in high-end salon and spa surroundings to learn how to create beautiful hairdos, choose skin-flattering cosmetics, and beautify nails and skin. A team of experienced industry professionals readies pupils for the beauty world with in-depth classes, and outside education arrives via video demonstrations and guest-artist lectures on Vidal Sassoon's Wedge-Bob Postulate. More advanced students get a preview of their career to come by beautifying real people during instructor-supervised treatments, which lend the stylist essential experience as the client enjoys a pampering session at a discounted rate.
The experienced staff at Pearl MediSpa strives to reveal the natural beauty of every client with advanced aesthetic and body treatments from massage therapy to custom weight-loss programs. During consultations, staffers focused on revitalizing forms and reducing stress discuss clients’ aesthetic and wellness goals before commencing with custom services. Private treatment rooms cradle techs defuzzing bodies of unwanted hair with the Candela laser system, which aims to clear small body areas of hair in just four sessions. Aestheticians pamper pores during facials with organic Luzern Laboratories skincare products. On the salon floor, stylists waltz up to cutting chairs armed with products from brands such as Australia's Kevin Murphy and Italy's Alfaparf Milano. Coppola keratin-complex hair-straightening treatments tame tresses and Hairdreams extensions add length. Those looking for a day of indulgence can snatch up a spa package, most of which include a session in the spa’s infrared sauna, which melts away stress the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart.
It’s easy to see why some clients refer to The Eyelash Place, Inc. as “The Miracle on 39th Street.” The all-around beauty emporium has been enhancing eyes, shaping brows, and softening skin for more than 30 years—and those services make up only a portion of the salon’s lengthy menu.
As one might expect, eyelash extensions take center stage on this menu. Using semipermanent glue or a surgical-grade bonding agent, technicians apply these extensions individually to create longer, fuller lashes capable of putting out a fire or seducing a high-security eye scanner. Lashes aren’t much without a smooth complexion to match, and aestheticians do their part to rejuvenate skin with SKINWYNC products and microcurrents that work to stimulate collagen production. When they turn their attention to the body, it’s to eradicate fatty deposits with Wellbox anticellulite treatments.
