Ulta's licensed staff, which partakes in ongoing training to keep skills sharp, creates customized looks and expert image enhancement using acclaimed beauty products. Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits. A 45-minute coif-cultivation session, in which the stylist takes into account face shape and lifestyle, energizes follicles and forges a salon-fresh look. In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.
Family-owned Blown Away! Hair Salon recently added cosmetic teeth whitening to its lineup of beautifying services, all administered by trained technicians. Each tusk-varnishing session commences with a cuspid wipe-down that removes external impurities and doubloon-stuffed fillings so that the whitening gel can work most effectively. The tooth technician then fills a delicate mouth tray with the whitening gel, which evenly coats the teeth as the customer bites down. A specialized LED light pours into open mouths to speed up the whitening process, beaming down for 20–30 minutes. Following the procedure, guests are gifted with aftercare instructions devoid of reference to obsessive tooth brushing and sandblasters.
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.
From the age of 12, Mz. Kelly started experimenting with hair, using her friends and family as test subjects. She realized that she had a talent for the art, and soon what began as a hobby blossomed into her life’s work: creating styles that leave the hair healthy and make people feel beautiful and confident. She specializes in short ‘dos, creating face-framing shapes and ornate patterns using shears, clippers, and a range of texturizing techniques. By merging these skills with other tools such as hair extensions and curl-boosting rod sets, Mz. Kelly can mold hair into whatever style best suits her clients' features, fashion sense, and pillow shape.
