Sharmilla Hira might be new to Heidi's Salon, but she's accumulated more than a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, training on various procedures throughout Europe and the United States. As an aesthetician, she puts this experience to use through skincare treatments including facials, microdermabrasion, and threading. However, her true specialty is permanent makeup; during her application sessions, she helps define the eyes and mouth with natural pigments, and adds extra color to cheeks, lips, and invisible freckles. She also uses her services to correct various physical conditions; she can disguise stretch marks, replenish brows or hairlines affected by alopecia, or reconstruct areolas after a mastectomy or breast enhancement.
At Heidi's Salon, licensed cosmetologists use long-trusted beauty techniques as a base for pushing the limits of what a stylist can aesthetically achieve. For 15 years, they've performed cuts for men, women, and children, especially excelling at full style and color transformations. On the other hand, some stylists possess a knack for taming curls and craft precision cuts to sleeken kinks and frizz. Specialties in chemical treatments and hair extensions help them create entirely new looks. For special occasions, stylists beautify bridal parties and guests of honor.
At a young age, Sara Parisi knew that her fascination for hairstyling would turn into a career. Now, at Bella Lei Studio—a name she chose because it means "beautiful you" in Italian—she shares more than 15 years of experience with her clients. Her services include smoothing Brazilian blowouts, extensions, hair coloring, cuts, and bridal styling.
Despite a long list of beautifying hair services and soothing massages, the most important sense at C'zar Salon-Spa is not sight or touch, but smell. Stemming from natural Aveda products, aromas drift throughout the space, tinting the air with rosemary, peppermint, and lavender scents that evoke pastoral scenes pulled straight out of the organic farms on which many of their ingredients grew. The Stress-Fix line of lotions?whose fragrances help to reduce anxiety?cloaks hands and feet in sage during specialty mani-pedis, and customized blends of essential oils augment Elemental Nature massages and facials.
Plants play a role in even the most detailed procedures at C'zar Salon-Spa. Flowers contribute extracts to the salon's cosmetics, and Nufree hair-removal formulas provide a botanical alternative to wax that's more gentle than tweezing with a venus flytrap. Although they don't incorporate leafy greens, wellness treatments such as acupuncture and cupping strive to round out makeovers by goading the body?s healing processes. For special events, the staff can accommodate groups inside the calming venue or transport their perfumed practices to a specified location.

As he reported to Sheridan Road Magazine, Charles Ifergan took the first steps toward establishing his hairstyling empire at the age of 13, when he talked his way into a job at the chic Paris salon where his older brother worked. Just a decade later, he settled down in the Chicago area to establish the first of four salon locations and try to convince the John Hancock building to do something about its two glaring cowlicks, and his work has since garnered media features in publications such as Vogue and Marie Claire. Charles's continually educated stylists keep their deft fingers on the pulse of fashion trends, which they transform into edgy hairstyles for women and men. In addition to drenching hair in deep hydration with moroccan oil and texturizing coifs with Redken products, aestheticians venture to other corners of the body with a concise menu of spa services that includes facials, waxing, body wraps, and mani-pedis.
