The staff at Stolen Moments Spa believes that inner beauty can only shine when one is relaxed and healthy. That's why they incorporate organic and oxygen-based facials and herbal peels into a spa roster of holistic massages and naturopathic services. Much like an organic tax firm, Stolen Moments Spa uses only botanically based products.
A licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, Sharon Vogel treats the body as a whole, using her skilled hands to soothe tight muscles during deep-tissue and lymphatic-drainage massages. She also tends to outer beauty with intensive facials customized to each client.
For 24 years, Design Expressions has been offering elegant hair design. From cuts and styling to coloring, conditioning, and keratin treatments, the stylists combine their vast experience with high quality products—Crew, Big Sexy Hair, and Matrix, to name a few—in order to send their clients back into the world with traffic-stopping hairdos.
Emma boasts more than 30 years of experience transforming her clients’ hair. She takes the time to learn each person’s desires before breaking out her scissors, dye, and straightening treatments. Her clients include women, men, fashion-conscious horses, and kids.
The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
Jill Dailey McIntosh has always been intrigued by the human body and how it moves—so much so that she graduated in 1991 with a kinesiology degree and soon thereafter decided to open her own Pilates teaching studio. But it wasn't until years later that this curiosity would manifest itself in a single question: "How can one aggressively transform the shape of their body while still maintaining proper alignment of the spine?" Eventually Jill began to examine her diverse fitness background, pulling low-impact movements from ballet, Pilates, and even orthopedic-exercise routines to create the basis for her fitness style, The Dailey Method.
Now, more than a decade later, Dailey's fitness routine has ballooned into studios sprawled across more than 10 states and gained praise from Self, Allure, FitPregnancy, and InStyle magazines. Regardless of the location, instructors remain true to Jill's mission of offering a diverse series of exercises that focus on toning and lengthening the body while lengthening the spine and building strong core muscles.
Colleen Patrino completed her master teacher certification studies under the direction of Jill Dailey McIntosh, and she brought the technique to Naperville, founding The Dailey Method's first location in Illinois. Shortly after opening, Colleen met Michelle Waranoski—a fitness enthusiast with more than 15 years of ballet training and Pilates teacher certification—and the duo became partners, eventually expanding with a second location in Wheaton. These two studios still embrace Jill's original vision for The Dailey Method, although each location also caters to its attendees' needs with amenities such as spa-like locker rooms, onsite childcare, and horse-hitching posts in the parking lot.
