A chic salon in a rustic space. Great for both cut and color.
It's the epitome of bare bones, but the therapists at Pain Stop will cute what ails you. The 30-minute foot massage is a must after a night of high heels, and the full-body massage is tough enough for athletes and gym rats (you will see a steady stream of them walking in and out). While you won't find soft blankets, candles or soothing water walls, this place delivers serious deep tissue massage at a good price. Ok so they are cash only and don't really speak English, but you won't regret the results.
There's a reason every local celeb and media hotshot goes to Leah Chavie to get gorgeous. She is the best of the best and offers luxe treatments that no one else can even touch. You'll walk out glowing, radiant and even a bit lighter (if you opt for her Thermojet treatment).
Fantastic local shop filled with Chicago centric (among others) art and prints. They support local artists and is filled with a great selection.
