Debbie Markiewicz, owner of Tranquility Skin Spa, believes that everyone deserves to be pampered, which is why her treatments always cost less than $100. Though the prices remain low on each service, the technicians never skimp on quality. Nail technicians upgrade basic mani-pedis with pumpkin scrubs and chip-resistant polish, leaving hands and feet soft and shiny, like a seal's forehead. Aestheticians blend natural fruit acids and enzymes for chemical peels and combine antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredients into acne facials. Throughout each treatment, the beauty pros educate clients about the benefits of proper skincare. Though the 600-square-foot boutique spa is modest, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. Complimentary snacks and tea are always on hand for clients to enjoy as they await treatment.
Though Allure's taupe walls and elegant furniture evoke bygone glamour, the cosmetic treatments offered by its staff champion futuristic techniques. With the guidance of medical director Rodney Berger, MD, injector Rea Lorence banishes wrinkles with Botox and facial filler injections, while Tracey and Jill wield hair-banishing and skin-correcting lasers and individually tailor facial services to address skin imperfections like blemishes or milk mustaches. Laser skin treatments are offered by Christina, who uses her certified skills to banish hair from bodily areas and fade unwanted tattoos from sight. The center also provides weight-loss programs, body-contouring services, and spray-tanning sessions.
Like any good colorist knows, perfection is all about balance. But for Redken-trained colorist and salon owner Juliet Strocchia, it's more than just finding the right hue for a client's coloring. It's also about balancing the need for quality her clients seek while also keeping in mind her salon's environmental and societal impact. That's why Juliet and her team only stock their styling stations with socially conscious botanical products from brands such as Brocato, Paul Mitchell, and Redken that are good for the body, the world, and trees with major frizz problems.
The staff uses these kinds of products in the salon's cut, color, and chemical treatments, which can improve hair's condition with silk-imbuing conditioning treatments or add a splash of color to the tips of hair with ombre color jobs. Some of Juliet's high-profile clients include the Chelsea Lately show and the Chicago Rush dancers, but the same careful attention is extended to all the salon's clients.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.

Six stylists and a pair of nail techs make up the team at Sandra Araceli Salon, a haven of primping and pampering nestled in a mini-mall. Their haircuts, color treatments, and perms each begin with a thorough consultation to discuss expectations and taste, then finish with a rundown of styling tips that help you maintain your new look at home. They also carry DreamCatchers extensions, which are made of real human hair and can be used to add realistic length to limp locks or show dogs' coats.
