Clients of Sandra Plasencia Casanova, owner of Havana Nights Nails and Spa in Chicago, sing her praises. “Sandra is the most gracious person I have ever met, and often, when I talk about her with other guests, they too will mention how kind and caring she is with each customer,” says client Sheila Magee. “This is so rare in today’s business world. Sandra makes each of us feel as if we were the only one in the salon.”

Adds client Barbara Johnson, “Always full of energy, Sandra has an incredible ability to make people feel special at her salon.

Manic Manicurists

Its Manicure Mania for Girls and Guys!

A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands performed in a spa by a licensed professional nail technician or manicurist. A manicure treatment is not only a treatment for the natural nails but also for the hands.

A manicure consists of filing, shaping of the free edge, cuticle treatments, massage of the hand and the application of polish. There are also manicure services that are specialties for the hands and feet. For the hands, the soaking of a softening substance and the application of a lotion is a common speciality. This procedure can be applied to the toenails and feet, this treatment is referred to as a Pedicure. The word “manicure” derives from Latin: manus for “hand,” cura for “care.”

Cleopatra’s Pedicure

Cleopatra Started it!

Did you know, Pedicure history goes back to the time of Cleopatra and possibly beyond!

A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet and their nails, similar to a manicure. The word pedicure comes from the Latin words pedis, which means of the foot, and cura, which means care. It also means the care of the feet and toenails. A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. Pedicures are not just limited to nails; usually dead skin cells on the bottom of feet are rubbed off using a rough stone called a pumice stone.

Chicago Guys and Dolls

We blokes like to lookg good too, and for those guy’s who may be considering paemanet make-up here’s a brief rundown on what it really is. Its Brilliant but here’s the official bit.

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eye lining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids.
It is also used to produce artificial eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast’s areola, such as after breast surgery.

Most commonly called permanent cosmetics, other names include dermapigmentation, micropigmentation, and cosmetic tattooing, the latter being most appropriate since permanent makeup is, in fact, tattooing. The inks used in permanent makeup and the pigments in these inks are subject to FDA agency regulation as cosmetics and color additives.
