Just off York in Elmhurst, we discovered Self (ish) Skin & Brow Bar and Judith B Salon in Elmhurst’s City Centre. It was love at first arch ;-)
From perfect brows to gorgeous locks, glowing skin and beyond, Self (ish) Skin & Brow Bar and Judith B Salon offer an expansive menu of upscale salon and skin care services. But, before we spill the tea about all the salon + spa offerings at this pretty pair of beauty destinations, here’s a little background about both businesses, and the women who founded them.
Introducing Self (ish) Skin & Brow Bar
We’ve known — and loved — Clinical Esthetician and Brow Expert, Nia Molina, owner of Self (ish), for years.
Nia’s newest offering, Self (ish) Skin & Brow Bar, is a chic Facial & Brow Bar that offers services for every budget & time constraint.
This Facial/ Brow Bar is an innovative concept that serves up quick spa services, while still delivering the feel, and results, of full spa treatments.
Self (ish) Skin & Brow Bar has a full facial bar menu featuring SkinCeuticals Professional Peels, Derma Needling, Dermaplaning, High Frequency Therapy, Red & Blue Light Therapy and Facial Ultrasound Services. In addition to facials, Nia’s built a reputation as one of the best for brow shaping, plus brow & lash tinting.
Meet Judith B Salon
Judith B is a bespoke Salon, DrySpa, Advanced Academy and Art Gallery.
Walking into the salon’s open, art-filled space, one is immediately hit by the energy and inspiration that powers Judith Barrientos, the owner, and her team.
Judith herself is a Vidal Sassoon (Chicago & London) trained hairdresser since 1995 and an educator since 2000.
When it comes to beauty, if you need it, you can get it at Judith B Salon.
Service menu offerings range from hair color and cutting to specialized services for curly hair. Texturizing treatments — think Cezanne Keratin — and beyond are on the menu, too.
Judith B also offers hair extensions, barbering, lashes, skin and brow services and cosmetic tattoos via Self (ish).
