Studio Ritz isn't just named for the glamorous services it provides or the elegant location it holds within the Drake Oak Brook Plaza. The boutique spa is also named after owner, Ritzie Postmus, a nail technician with more than 15 years of experience. Ritzie, along with a dedicated team of stylists and nail technicians, aims to pamper patrons to the fullest, which is why consultations are a top priority at the lavishly decorated space. A gold velvet canopy drapes around a pedicure throne, where feet are softened with callus removal and a jacuzzi soak during three types of pedicure. More than 90 Nail Harmony and 100 magnetic nail-polish bottles frame manicure stations as technicians enhance fingertips with the salon’s specialty no-chip manicures, acrylic tips, and fiber wraps. Nail techs also employ products from OPI, CND, and Gelish, and wield tools sanitized with hospital-grade disinfectant.
Ritz's stylists—many of whom are platform artists at beauty shows—further beautify clients with foil highlights that add dimension, a formaldehyde-free KeraSmooth hair-smoothing treatment, and seamless hair extensions that would make Rapunzel take a second look. Knowing that waxing can cause a bit of a sting, Ritzie and her team use Clean + Easy sensitive wax on delicate areas and finish each treatment with an Aveda hydrating mask.
On a trip to Chicago from his native Italy, young Mario Tricoci changed his life forever. The fledgling hairdresser stopped in at a prestigious salon, where he impressed the owner with his impeccable display of skill and landed himself a job. The next six decades brought strings of industry awards and the opening of his very own salon, which soon exploded into 26 locations in four states. With his styling prowess proven both to the industry and to the clients he encountered each day, the coiffeur decided to share his gift with others. In 2004, he established Tricoci University to foster a new generation of cosmetologists and spa technicians trained to thrive in the luxury-spa industry.
Throughout the Midwest, Tricoci protégés study a rigorous curriculum in high-end salon and spa surroundings to learn how to create beautiful hairdos, choose skin-flattering cosmetics, and beautify nails and skin. A team of experienced industry professionals readies pupils for the beauty world with in-depth classes, and outside education arrives via video demonstrations and guest-artist lectures on Vidal Sassoon's Wedge-Bob Postulate. More advanced students get a preview of their career to come by beautifying real people during instructor-supervised treatments, which lend the stylist essential experience as the client enjoys a pampering session at a discounted rate.

Asta Skin Care and Body Therapy harnesses advanced technologies, top-shelf products, and time-tested methods to provide clients with a diverse menu of aesthetic services. The Japanese Aurora-Ceutical Gold machine, for example, uses ultrasound therapy, ion introduction, and infrared rays to cleanse and tone complexions. Other skincare offerings incorporate products from Depilève, BiOn, and Maria Galland to deeply enrich the skin without having to administer several treatments in a row or keep the face overnight for service. And although it takes pride in being on the cutting edge of cosmetic services, Asta knows some treatments don’t need to be high-tech, as is the case with its selection of massages.

Every last person at The New Hair Image wants clients to leave the salon looking and feeling better than they did when they arrived. In keeping with that goal, stylists craft eye-catching hairdos, trimming and shaping strands or adding flair with highlights and perms. Waxing technicians remove unwanted stubble from eyebrows and upper lips, and nail artists pamper clients with indulgent manicures and pedicures. Mani-pedis can incorporate quick massages, soothing soaks, and UV-cured gel polishes—which can last for as long as two weeks without chipping, peeling, or evaporating into the stratosphere.
