In this week's Blog we are celebrating Spring, hurrah!  Even if the cold still plagues us, the days are longer, and I am ready to put away wintery boots, and shop for a new pair of wedge sandals!

It's not just our closets that can benefit from a Spring clean-up.  Update your look at Elan, Hair Body & Sole in River Forest.  In preparation for the Wed. Journal Mother's Day edition photo shoot, one of our models chose Elan to have her hair & make-up done.  Diane Hunter, a hard working River Forest Mom, is one gorgeous redhead, who can not take a bad picture.  

Rita Perisin-Johnston & Malvin Torres, owners of Elan, say their "approach to beauty and grooming is precision in execution, organic in feel, and modern in look". Whether you want a radical new look, a subtle change, or want to indulge in an array of spa services, their team provides individual attention & service in an environment that is fresh, inviting, and chic!

Stay tuned to attend one of their fabulous events, in the most stunning space on Lake street.  Indulge in their 'A' list of cutting edge products including: Aveda for hair, color, make-up, and body; Aquage for styling, American Crew for men, Gm Collin for skin, OPI for nails and Schwarzkopf for color. 

Stylist, Kerrie gave Diane a lovely cut & blow-out, and was quickly onto make-up.  When asked which color eye shadow, it was agreed - Emerald green, top choice & IT color for the season - a perfect compliment to our bold redhead.  Other Spring make-up trends include luscious, vibrant lips: prep for a glamorous date night, or switch-up your daytime lipstick, for a shimmering berry or magenta!

It was a delight to have Diane & her cute kids, Gordon & Shea model for us at the Oak Park Conservatory last week.  Be sure to pickup your copy of our special Mothers Day feature in the Wed. Journal next week.  No one deserves to be spoiled more than Mom, so for Mother's Day this year, why not go all-out and re-make yourself for the special day!

As "Granny" to Shea Hunter, I love bringing her to Elan for her haircuts with Kerrie. Kerrie is the only stylist I have taken Shea to that actually pays attention to her hair/needs! I love it...set up another salon in Chapel Hill??
