Sue, of Sue's Hair Removal, brings years of experience to ancient sugaring methods (called shelta) and customized facials. Through the Middle Eastern practice of shelta , Sue quickly and effectively evicts unwanted tendrils from across the body for up to four weeks.

Studio Ritz isn't just named for the glamorous services it provides or the elegant location it holds within the Drake Oak Brook Plaza. The boutique spa is also named after owner, Ritzie Postmus, a nail technician with more than 15 years of experience. Ritzie, along with a dedicated team of stylists and nail technicians, aims to pamper patrons to the fullest, which is why consultations are a top priority at the lavishly decorated space. A gold velvet canopy drapes around a pedicure throne, where feet are softened with callus removal and a jacuzzi soak during three types of pedicure. More than 90 Nail Harmony and 100 magnetic nail-polish bottles frame manicure stations as technicians enhance fingertips with the salon’s specialty no-chip manicures, acrylic tips, and fiber wraps. Nail techs also employ products from OPI, CND, and Gelish, and wield tools sanitized with hospital-grade disinfectant.
Ritz's stylists—many of whom are platform artists at beauty shows—further beautify clients with foil highlights that add dimension, a formaldehyde-free KeraSmooth hair-smoothing treatment, and seamless hair extensions that would make Rapunzel take a second look. Knowing that waxing can cause a bit of a sting, Ritzie and her team use Clean + Easy sensitive wax on delicate areas and finish each treatment with an Aveda hydrating mask.
Creations is an appropriate word for Simply Amazin Hair Creations to include in its name—the salon's specialty is working with various types of hair extensions, using them to create length, volume, and thickness. Stylists use wefts of virgin Indian and Russian hair, gluing, sewing, or microlinking them to natural hair. Of course, the stylists also perform traditional salon services, including cuts, color, and relaxers, for hair that hasn't had a vacation in years.
From fuchsia hair coloring to elaborate updos, Fushia LeFlair proves that the name High Power Hair is no idle boast. Dedicated to creating eye-catching coiffures, her studio can style hair to match the glitziest outfits for nights on the town or undercover stints as a boutique mannequin. More sedate cuts suit those looking for day-to-day elegance while extensions lengthen locks with aplomb.
Every last person at The New Hair Image wants clients to leave the salon looking and feeling better than they did when they arrived. In keeping with that goal, stylists craft eye-catching hairdos, trimming and shaping strands or adding flair with highlights and perms. Waxing technicians remove unwanted stubble from eyebrows and upper lips, and nail artists pamper clients with indulgent manicures and pedicures. Mani-pedis can incorporate quick massages, soothing soaks, and UV-cured gel polishes?which can last for as long as two weeks without chipping, peeling, or evaporating into the stratosphere.
