We’re turning our spa spotlight on Chicago! One local insider gives us the scoop on her favorite places to unwind. See where popular style blogger Jena Gambaccini, Editor of Chi City Fashion, goes when she’s craving some spa time.

After a long work week, there’s nothing that feels better than a day at the spa. Whether you’re getting a relaxing massage or just freshening up those split ends, it’s always nice to get spruced up. There are a ton of great spas and salons in Chicago, but I picked my top three go-to places for every occasion.

Salon Buzz (Gold Coast location)

Let’s just start off by saying that Joseph’s blow outs will change your life. I’ve never gotten a blowout that’s lasted more than a couple of days, but with his magic touch your hair will be looking perfect for at least 4 days (5-6 if you’re strategic with dry shampoo!). The Salon Buzz blow dries are the best when you’re taking a weekend trip because you won’t have to worry about your hair the whole time.

NoMI Spa

Located in the luxurious Park Hyatt downtown, NoMI spa is the ultimate place to relax. From manicures to massages, they only use the best of the best products…and you can tell from the results. This is a perfect spot for a girls day at the spa, and any of their services would make a great gift.

Blueberry Moon

I go here every Monday to get my nails done by Cristina. She does the best manicures and it’s even better that she’s super fun to talk to. I usually opt for a regular manicure (although they do a fantastic job with no-chip manicures too!) and they last the entire week. What’s great about Blueberry Moon is that they literally do everything: Hair, nails, massages, waxing…you name it, they probably do it!
