Licensed aesthetician and business owner Linda Camacho has surgical precision with a makeup brush. Drawing on 12 years of experience beautifying clients, Camacho and her crew of expert beauty techs pamper faces with a dynamic array of makeup and skincare services. Clients can nix fuzz from upper lips with a waxing session or request a full makeover replete with a Bioelements facial, lash extensions, and a makeup application.

Makeup applications, lash extensions, and waxing services are also available.
As part of the national network of Paul Mitchell beauty schools, Paul Mitchell the School Tinley Park teaches students—or, as the academy refers to them, future professionals—cosmetology and aesthetics skills inspired by the products and services the brand has spent decades perfecting. While expert instructors help students prepare for state board exams and training in advanced techniques, they also supervise their proteges as they practice their skills on public clients or vain houseplants who can reserve salon services at discounted rates. The school was originally opened in 2001 as the first Paul Mitchell School in Illinois, and in 2009 moved to its current 15,000 sq.-ft. studio space outfitted with modern trappings.
