Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths?such as VersaSpa?or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
Gina Botich helms her own studio space inside Tinley Park's Jacob McLaine Salon, where she harnesses her extensive experience in high-end beauty emporiums to pamper the head threads of clients. The mane master performs a slate of services, from women's, men's, and children's haircuts to full color or partial highlights. Extensions affix volume and length to coiffures, while a keratin treatment smoothes out frizz and adds sleek shine for up to four months, making hair more manageable and easier to coerce into French braiding itself. In addition to strand services, Gina defuzzes mugs with waxing and prettifies visages with makeup applications for special occasions or glamorous visits to the produce aisle.
The stylists at Sage Salon & Spa pamper guests with hair, nail, and skincare services. Along with cuts and color, guests can visit the blow-out bar for fresh new styles with a wash and blowout, or extend their locks with clip-in extensions to impress the local prince. For faces, vitamin C or cranberry facials create healthy glows while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Makeup applications, lash extensions, and waxing services are also available.
As a licensed cosmetologist, Kristine Power has acquired the necessary skills to keep her clients properly pampered. She guides scissors through the hair of men, women, and children, and covers heads with foil for vibrant highlights and better TV reception. She also chemically alters manes via perms and Coppola Keratin Complex smoothing treatments.
Lisa Thomas Salon's pair of licensed aestheticians deploy their training to design custom refresher courses that promote radiant, healthy complexions. Staffers usher guests down pumpkin- and coffee-colored hallways to a treatment chamber, inviting them to recline on a bed draped in fresh linens and a soft, chenille throw. After sizing up conditions on the skin's surface, an aesthetician may pull products from the md formulations line with glycolic compounds engineered to safely exfoliate sensitive skin. The resulting refresher course may subdue overproductive oil glands, soothe inflammation caused by rosacea, or replenish moisture and nutrients lost through aging or reading only by laser light.
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.
