Meet our artists!
I have been in the salon industry since 1991 and have a deep passion for caring for the individual needs of all my guests. I specialize in the art of threading and laser hair removal. My expertise in manicure and pedicure services has led me to exclusively use SpaRitual’s vegan products. My professionalism allows me to offer the best experience and provide guests with superior service in our peaceful environment. We are listed on TransFriendly’s website, and welcome all LGBT+ folx.
I have been a Certified Clinical Laser Technician since 2011. I treat all my guests with respect and professionalism, and have years of experience with transgender guests. With a wealth of knowledge, I provide an accessible and personalized treatment plan for each of my clients, and can quickly assuage any concerns.
I have over 25 years of nail industry experience with a health-centered approach and an eye for fine details. I strive to make everyone feel and look their best and be healthier. It is my life’s honor to be able to accumulate knowledge, share my cooking, making people smile and feel better, and to encourage an enriched life by taking care of the often forgotten and overworked hands and feet.

I started pursuing the dream of being a hair stylist in 2002, and since then have had all my continuing education through the Aveda Institute. Although I love all aspects of hair styling, I thrive on doing color, from natural highlights to a complete color makeover. I travel all over the world, but Chicago will always be home to me.
Brook Umbrell draws upon over two decades in the beauty industry, beginning her career as a make-up artist in 1998. After learning the art of make-up application, their ingredients and effect on the skin, she decided to combine her passions for makeup artistry and skincare, becoming a licensed esthetician in 2004. Brook specializes in natural brow design, quick and easy brazilians as well as relaxing and rejuvenating facials and body treatments. She takes a very natural and holistic approach to her services and works with you to customize an experience unique to each client.
My passion to be a stylist is inspired by beauty and creativity. The constant changes in these push me to further my education, which started in Madison, Wisconsin five years ago. I continue to take color, cutting, and styling classes with Aveda so I can continue to listen to my clients' needs— from a trim to a makeover. I love what I do, but my favorite aspect of my work is helping clients look good and, just as importantly, feel good when they leave the salon.
