Office workers are likely to experience finger fatigue and wrist pain from days of typing, clicking, and clawing down repressive cubical walls. Give overworked appendages a break with today's Groupon: for $95, you get the Ultimate Hands and Feet Spa Package at Blueberry Moon on North Halsted (a $190 value).
Blueberry Moon's caring skin sages restore grace and elegance to winter-worn arm paddles and leg stumps with a slew of limb-healing services. Coddle weather-beaten paws with an intensive moisture-therapy hand treatment that harnesses the renewing powers of mango butter, cocoa butter, and Meadowfoam seed oil (a $45 value). Mitts also indulge in a tourmaline refining scrub (a $20 value) and an eco-friendly paraffin alternative warming oil treatment (a $15 value) before nail technicians trim and groom talons into prime phone-dialing condition.
An instant-dry Shellac no-chip polish (a $15 value) is applied to fingernails, leaving them bright enough to double as Mardi Gras beads for up to 14 days. With the moisture-therapy foot treatment, tantrum-throwing tootsies get the attention they need when buffed by a Jojoba oil-infused scrub and mask and massaged using acupressure techniques (a $65 value). A UV fast-dry top coat (a $15 value) is applied to the feet along with the same alternative warming oil treatment previously experienced by your happy hands (a $15 value).
Inside Blueberry Moon’s eco-friendly, soothing interior, there’s décor fashioned from original pieces of Chicago architecture and rescued antique materials. Because Blueberry Moon is an Aveda salon, the products your aesthetician uses are created with natural ingredients that sing anticruelty anthems to your subconscious and coat your skin with fresh, rejuvenated glows.
- Reclaimed gems, such as the hanging weights, which are visible from the front window, and the Michigan river rock, reside perfectly with the sleek, new earth-friendly rubberwood furniture and exposed brick walls. The balance is amazing, but then so is everything about Blueberry Moon’s vision. – Jen Khatchatrian, Mindful Metropolis
- The experience was top notch and the talent is exceptional. – Karin W., Yelp, 10/7/10
After pursuing a media-focused career, during which she worked for MTV and in marketing, advertising, and special events for an entertainment company, Jennie Channer collaborated with her father and brother to open a full-service salon and spa in 2007. Today, the Chicago native's team of skilled stylists, colorists, and spa specialists attracts an assortment of clientele, including a woman who's been coming in every other week since opening day and a 4-year-old girl who refers to each staffer as "girlfriend" or "boyfriend." Clients can choose from a variety of salon-spa services, ranging from haircuts with coloring to pampering packages specifically designed for expectant mothers. Because Blueberry Moon is an Aveda Lifestyle Salon Spa, all products are composed of 96% naturally derived ingredients extracted from high-quality botanicals and distilled Mother Nature kisses.
Before officially opening the doors to the public, Jennie put the salon-spa—located inside a building more than 100 years old—through a complete gut renovation to unearth its rich history and hidden brick walls. She then added morsels of local history by installing fixtures she acquired from a local salvage yard, including the former front door of a demolished Gold Coast mansion and an old printing table from historical Printers Row. Jennie has also been modernizing the salon-spa to minimize its effect on the environment, incorporating technologies such as a reverse-osmosis water-filtration system and energy-efficient light bulbs filled with immortal fireflies.
