Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon will wipe out your own philosophical furrows: for $35, you get a spa facial with extractions at Headlines Salon Spa in Palos Heights (a $75 value).
Headlines Salon Spa is a relaxing haven of beauty and pamperation. The standard facial treatment begins with a thorough dermal cleansing followed by an intense extraction. Clogged pores silently scream their last serenade of scum as the extraction process clears your façade of unwanted blackheads, blemishes, and other aperture leeches to make room for purified skin composed of healthy cells. Then, an experienced aesthetician applies a warm steam mask that is specially formulated based on the wants, needs, and musical preferences of each frontispiece. As your visage basks in the glow of the beautiful bouncing dermis forming on its surface, a final moisturizer pummels dry veneers with hydration and protection against the winds of old man winter's blizzardy belches.
The exposed brick walls and wooden fixtures at Headlines Salon Spa sing a delightful counterpoint to the delicate waves of beauty that regularly wash over the clientele. Headlines Salon Spa treats all clients as if they're front-page news, minus the muckraking investigations into where they've hidden the governor's gold-plated wig.
Three Insider Pagers give Headlines Salon Spa an average of four stars:
Headlines Salon & Spa
Five of the staff members at Headlines Salon & Spa have been pampering clients there for more than a decade—one as long as 23 years. Their dedication to relaxation and aesthetics is evident in their services, which range from specialty facials and peels to soothing hot-stone massages and body wraps. They also customize packages that prep brides-to-be for their big days, protecting nails with no-chip manicures, gathering hair into custom updos, and strategically positioning veils to conceal antennae. Wooden fixtures and a distressed-copper sculpture of the sun make the space as warm and welcoming as the people who work there.
