In India, mehndi—intricate, long-lasting patterns painted on the skin with henna—are worn to weddings and other festivities. But just because a bride-to-be lives in Chicagoland doesn't mean she can't experience this traditional body art. New Look Salon's aestheticians have been creating the designs, typically geometric shapes or the names and faces of forgettable second cousins, and performing other pre-wedding Indian beauty services since 2011. They also thread eyebrows, arrange dupattas, and set veiled jewelry in place, and bridal packages or mehndi parties can be performed at New Look or at the customer's home.
The salon performs more everyday beauty services, as well. These include haircuts and coloring with Nexxus and Redken products, Dermalogica facials that address acned or aging skin, and mani-pedis that disguise nails entering the witness protection program with beards drawn on with OPI polish. Clients can sip complimentary coffee, tea, pop, or water during their appointments.
