The skilled stylists at Fantastic Sams Lincoln Park turn their deftly handled shears not only to the hair atop patrons' heads, but also to unruly facial hair, performing beard and mustache trims. Other services include facial waxing, color and texture treatments, and updos for formal events.
Twenty-five years ago, a small group of women envisioned a client-centric salon where no two haircuts were alike. Ambiance Salon is the product of that vision, a place where stylists assess each client’s hair type and craft a look that meets their needs and goals.
Through sleek cuts, cutting-edge coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments, these stylists are able to breathe new life into hair. The staff also pampers with mani-pedis, eyebrow shaping, and airbrush tanning.
There are very few worries at Blotique Blowdry Bar. That isn't only due to the glasses of pink bubbly staff place in clients' hands as soon as they arrive. It's also because the house stylists don't provide irreversible salon services such as cuts or color treatments. Instead, they work with the hair's current state to create well-groomed and salon-quality styles?no scissors, dye, or texturizing required. Using a round brush, a blow dryer, and a few styling tools, they mold and shape hair into one of their six signature blowouts, which range from big, loose curls to shiny, straight locks and carefree, tousled waves. With proper care, these styles can last for days or until work at the wind tunnel starts to take a toll.
Jessica Eberhardt, the owner of Pure Skin Salon and Spa, wants to make her clients feel like family. And with all the treatments she and her team offer, it doesn't take long to start thinking of the spa as a second home. One week, you might stop by for an exfoliating microdermabrasion treatment and a touch-up on your lash extensions; the next might call for a hot-stone massage or a reflexology pedicure. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Pure Skin actually looks pretty homey, too. Beautiful hardwood floors run throughout the interior, and the private spa rooms are outfitted with everything from candles to blanket forts.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
Inside this full-service hair and nail salon, a team of stylists uses the latest treatments to update looks. Keratin formulas create smooth, shiny manes that are complemented by trendy cuts and color treatments. Nail technicians, meanwhile, adorn tips with long-lasting gel or airbrushed artwork. All treatments take place amid Salon 141’s elegant decor of twinkling chandeliers, warm wood finishes, and bronzed mirrors.
