Honey Comb Salon's bristle-tamers smooth forms with quick swipes of a fabric strip, removing hair with warm wax in 30- to 60-minute sessions. Technicians keep underarms sleek, clear lips and chins of wispy hairs that undermine intimidating mug-shot stares, or clear away bikini-area hair with Brazilian waxes. Waxing can keep skin smooth for weeks at a time, eliminating the rapid regrowth common after shaving or individually threatening each hair with a bowie knife.
Inside Colleen’s Family Hair Care, the stylists at Hair Goddess welcome men and women into their chairs for haircuts, color services, and beard trims. Apart from shearing up overlong lengths, the team elongates locks with Cinderella hair extensions and extinguishes frizz with smoothing Brazilian blowouts. When they’re not tending scalps with hair services, versatile staffers primp façades with brow, lip, and chin waxing.
At Frankie's, empty stomachs fuel up on eclectic menu selections including hot dogs, sausages and sandwiches made to order using locally sourced ingredients. For hot dogs, teeth sink through Chicago-style fixings into an all-beef link kept from inflating into a life preserver by the constraints of a poppy-seed bun. Sandwich savants layer italian beef on top of fresh french bread, top the meat in a choice of mozzarella, sweet peppers, and hot giardiniera, and then deliver it to taste buds alongside a mild italian sausage. Patrons turn toward the restaurant's chalkboard menu to order up a Meatball Sammich and scribble out calculations for the gravitational pull of a Portabella Sammich, which lures mouths from their meat trance with a marinated mushroom cap topped in tomato and cucumber.
Paulina Esthetics Boutique channels the beautifying talents of three aestheticians, a cosmetologist, and a massage therapist, into a menu of spa services performed with high-quality products. Soft and hard waxes gently snatch fuzz from sensitive skin and serums tailored to specific flaws renew faces and reverse the signs of too much time spent with shar pei puppies. An organic airbrush tanning formula bronzes bodies to one of three sun-kissed sheens, and colorful Lash Candy extensions frame eyes with a rainbow of sparkly hues. The boutique salon is outfitted with dark woods and trendy furnishings like vintage chic furniture and ambient lighting.
At Hot Heads Salon, “Keep It Up!” isn’t a motivational phrase. It’s the name of the root re-touch treatment, a title that’s exemplary of Hot Heads’ Salon cheeky service menu. Stylists, including the mother-daughter duo that runs the salon, cut locks but do not blow-dry them during “Shape Up…Ship Out!” sessions and straighten ringlets with “I Hate Curl” straightening treatments. Aside from hair services—which also include highlights, Brazilian blowouts, perms, and conditioning treatments—they also perform waxing and manicures.
