“It is a nice relaxed envirnoment, everyone who works there is friendly, and the prices are very reasonable.”
Great Place to Be. Tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall is a little space of heaven called Shear Encounter, located in Dupage County, Ill. I found some excellent recommendations for a Day Spa called Shear Encounter in the suburb of Elmhurst. Owned and run by sisters Verna and Ginger, I discovered it to be all that I had hoped for. From a small reception area bordered by the busy hair and manicure stations, a visitor is ushered into a plush, quiet seating area accompanied by chilled cucumber water in lovely steamed glasses. While relaxing, the friendly staff is introduced and Verna or Ginger deliver a welcome. I had chosen the Signature facial with brow styling, lash tinting, 60 minute deep tissue massage, and hydrotherapy bath. Each procedure was excellent in performance and equally relaxing and enjoyable. I also expressed an interest in their Body Bronzing. A technique for giving the appearance of tanned skin without the exposure to sun or tanning lights. Ginger, well experienced in the process, gave me a demonstration and instructions in doing the application myself with quick easy steps. We both purchased the products and are amazed at how natural it looks. Four and a half hours of pampering attention left this mother and daughter pair feeling like we had spent a whole day of relaxation and beautification. It is great to know that this oasis is available 6 days a week at such a reasonable cost. I only wish I lived closer to Chicago.
Walking on cloud. The best waxing and facial I had in my life!!! I got a cupon from A Shear Encounter and Spa to come and meet their esthetician ANGEL. I got a Brazilian Bikini waxing and eyebrow shaping. It was the best waxing I ever had in my life! It didn't hurt as much and it was so fast and no hair was left.The eyebrows shape was the perfect shape for my face. ANGEL is extremely nice, she comes from Europe.She is very,very knowledgeable about skin and you can ask questions that even your dermatologist doesn't want to answer. I tried a facial with her later on and it was a delightful experience. MUST TRY!!
Sales. I had a massage here, talk about relaxation. I have never had a massage make me so relaxed, I actually fell asleep. The facials are amazing as well. It is a nice relaxed envirnoment, everyone who works there is friendly, and the prices are very reasonable.
