Maybe it's something about her warm presence, or her collection of makeup awards. But when a client wanted to teach her blind mother how to apply her own makeup, she went to Clarice Loiacono. Owner of Clarice's Creating Beautiful Looks, Clarice combines her experience in pharmaceuticals with her passion for makeup and skincare. It's the challenge of using her knowledge of compounds and botanicals to achieve beauty goals that Clarice loves. "You're really making people feel good … [It's] like therapy."
Within a stately cream-and-scarlet home in Wheaton—close to Clarice's high school and family—she employs a staff of trusted aestheticians to help her administer customized facials and free follow-up appointments to track complexion improvement. Bea, who Clarice has known since grade school, began working at Clarice's as an intern. After earning experience in the industry at other spas and successfully beautifying gargoyles hoping to catch a special pigeon's eye, Bea returned to Clarice's to revamp skin with products Loiacono herself helped beta test.
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.
?How would you describe yourself?? ?What is your ideal look?? These are some of the first words new clients hear from owner Frances of Amore Francesca Salon & Spa. Frances takes the time to get to know her clients during meaningful conversations to ensure that their new ?dos will reflect their personality and beauty goals. These conversations can be heard swirling through the chic black-and-gray salon by her team of new and junior- and senior-level stylists, each armed with high quality MoroccanOil and Schwarzkopf products. As stylists revamp ?dos with precision cuts, ombre hair coloring, and special-occasion updos, nail technicians dole out no-chip and regular manicures to add the finishing touch. To complement the full-service salon, a full-service spa keeps skin looking effortlessly healthy with airbrush and UV tanning as well as waxing services.
