Splashed with bright-orange walls, Beauty Trendz Salon and Spa puts little more pep in clients' step with head-to-toe beauty services. Makeup and waxing perk up faces, henna ornaments brides-to-be, and mani-pedis transform nails from average to attention grabbing.
Despite a long list of beautifying hair services and soothing massages, the most important sense at C'zar Salon-Spa is not sight or touch, but smell. Stemming from natural Aveda products, aromas drift throughout the space, tinting the air with rosemary, peppermint, and lavender scents that evoke pastoral scenes pulled straight out of the organic farms on which many of their ingredients grew. The Stress-Fix line of lotions—whose fragrances help to reduce anxiety—cloaks hands and feet in sage during specialty mani-pedis, and customized blends of essential oils augment Elemental Nature massages and facials.
Plants play a role in even the most detailed procedures at C'zar Salon-Spa. Flowers contribute extracts to the salon's cosmetics, and Nufree hair-removal formulas provide a botanical alternative to wax that's more gentle than tweezing with a venus flytrap. Although they don't incorporate leafy greens, wellness treatments such as acupuncture and cupping strive to round out makeovers by goading the body’s healing processes. For special events, the staff can accommodate groups inside the calming venue or transport their perfumed practices to a specified location.
With more than 35 experienced beauticians on hand, Beauty Company of Chicago is more than equipped to beautify whatever their clients desire. At salon stations awash with ample light and leafy plants, stylists craft creative cuts, dimension-boosting color, and texturizing perms with trained and artistic hands. The same enthusiasm spills over across the polished wood floors to the nail stations, where technicians dote over fingers, toes, and lucky rabbits’ feet with manicures and pedicures. And if clients want to wind down after sprucing up, cozy massage tables in candlelit rooms await them—along with a massage therapist who soothes tight muscles with tailored strokes and firm pressure. After every visit, guests are welcome to peruse the salon’s store, where products from Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and OPI are available for purchase.
The paw pamperers at Feet Feel Spa mine knowledge of acupressure points to provide wellness through traditional Chinese foot massage, doled out in serene environs graced with sleek hardwood floors and glowing Chinese lanterns. During treatments, customers recline in black leather armchairs while relishing a 20-minute foot kneading complete with an unwinding soak in water infused with Chinese herbs. Massage therapists devote the last 10 minutes of sessions to kneading away aches in necks, hands, and vestigial tentacles. By targeting acupressure points, practitioners strive to clear up congested energy flow within the body, allowing for optimal relaxation and overall well-being.
Methylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, and diaminobenzene are just a few of the dirty words you're unlikely to hear at Korcare Spa & Wellness. Instead, this all-natural, organic spa favors products free from harmful chemicals, and blends formulas from Éminence Organic and SpaRitual into its large menu of relaxing services. Facials begin with a thorough skin analysis so aestheticians can customize a treatment plan that will help reverse the dulling effects of environmental changes, hormone fluctuations, allergies, and doggy kisses. One-hour wraps use herbs and oils to release body impurities or wrap the body in algae to restore hydration, and tension yields under the soothing strokes of therapeutic or Swedish massages that may be enhanced by reflexology, aromatherapy, or myofascial techniques.
At Ambience Salon and Day Spa, gentle cream hues swathe clients in serenity as practiced stylists and aestheticians beautify hair, skin, and nails. Hair services transform style, color, and texture, and a slew of services for special occasions leaves manes trussed and cheeks primed for proms, weddings, or proms that turn into weddings. Sunlight filters in through gauzy curtains as extremities indulge in pedicures and manicures, and a plush table plays host to massages.
The stylists and aestheticians at Aida Spa, a full-service European salon in Fairview Plaza, primp and pamper their clients from head to toe. They trim and color hair, offer waxing treatments, and polish nails during relaxing mani-pedis. Facials banish dirt and fairy dust from pores, while massages knead tension and knots out of muscles.
