Pure Beauty Bar at Macy's State Street in Chicago

Pure Beauty Bar Manager Jose Rangel and I met at the Style Chicago Modern Beauty recently.
He invited me to try out the Pure Beauty Bar at Macy's State Street and I was very excited, since i had not experienced a Beauty Bar before.
My appointment was for September 20th at 10am, When I got to the Beauty Bar the were just opening up and there were a few girls they tidying up and wiping everything down, I liked the cleanliness. The are was perfect size for all that was available, hair, makeup, and barber.
I was greeted by Maribeth and she introduced me to Tequila (hairstylist).
I sat in the shampoo chair and she started her normal shampooing and let me tell you it was intense, lol. I have gotten my hair shampooed before but Tequila gave me what felt like a Swedish massage on my head. It was a bit rough but I felt like she was really giving attention to my hair after the massage, she asked what I used daily and suggested what I should be doing./using.
After shampoo Tequila, blow dried my hair, I initially wanted sleek straight but opted for a curl look. I liked the final look, although it made me look a bit older, lol.

I then went on for my Pedicure.  I was very pleased and happy with this :)
I had a Parrafin Wax treatment for the first time ever and I loved it. Ronni did am amazing job and was very knowledgeable with nail trends and payed close attention and care to my toes :) My toes are still nice. I would definately go back for this and ask for Ronni.
Express- 30 min pedi, cuticle  push back and color.
Classic- all above plus more cuticle concentration and 5 minute massage
Delux- All above plus Parrafin Wax adn Foot Mask

I then went for my Manicure, which also included Parrafin Wax. Jackie did my Mani.
The manicure was pretty basic, file, cuticle removal, and polish with a Parrafin Wax bonus.

Brows & Makeup:
Last was my Eyebrow and Makeup.
This was exciting as I usually do my own makeup and brows. Maribeth was my girl for both services. I had already had my brows done with her before and I loved it so this was just a refresher for me and was great, the brows were my shape and looked full, she used Christi Harris Adda Brow and Chocolate Brow Powder, loved it. She is definitely a brow expert to look forward to she does no wax, no threading, no tweeze using the razor by Christi Harris This method is called the "Precision Brow Planning". For my face I had a picture of a look I wanted, and she perfected it to my taste, I was really happy with the outcome. The brands in her kit were Lorac, Viseart, Smashbox, Christi Harris. I liked that she paid attention to what I wanted and showed me every step of the way.

I would definitely recommend the Pure Beauty Bar if you work in Downtown and in need of something quick. I think this is like a quick service bar and everyone is pretty much in and out, which is great for those in a crunch for time and the location is perfect, clean, and professional.
