Located in Chicago's North Center neighborhood, Bespoke Esthetics is a private spa suite housed within Hamsa Ayurvedic Wellness and Yoga Center.
There is ample metered parking on Lincoln Ave, and free parking on all surrounding side streets.
Chicago is booming with spas and facial studios, but we are different because we customize all aspects of the experience to our clients. Using a combination of natural products, organic spices, herbs, florals, and ingredients. No two facials are ever the same.
Sugaring is the ancient art of body hair removal using a paste made of sugar, lemon juice, and water. We use "Tamara's" non toxic, certified USDA Organic, vegan paste which provides a gentler experience for the client compared to traditional waxing as it adheres to the hair and not the skin.
Yes! Each service is tailored to the client based around personal preferences and allergies. While some products we use contain honey, those will be subbed during service with a vegan option.
Our backbar consists of "Bonnie" skincare, which is made locally in Chicago! Additionally, bulk florals, spices, herbs, and ingredients are incorporated into services to enhance the customization process, and to allow for a truly unique experience
Bespoke Esthetics is currently an independently run and operated business, so your service will be performed by Gabrielle, who is a Licensed Esthetician, and spa owner.
Most clients opt for a 60 minute facial, once a month to achieve ultimate results. If you're in a time crunch, or your skin is in maintenance mode, 30 or 45 minute is sufficient. And if you're looking for a real treat, the 75 or 90 minute sessions will have you walking on clouds.
Due to space limitations, health standards, and security reasons it is not permitted to bring anyone into your service with you.
Anyone under the age of 18 is required to have a guardian on site (but not in the service room) or a written consent prior to appointment.
Bespoke Esthetics is a Spa Suite housed within another practicing business, where noise volume is critical to healing. Additionally, there are space limitations so we can't currently accommodate guests with children.
While it's not necessary to remove your makeup prior to your appointment, as it will be removed during the cleansing process, it's advised to come bare faced when possible so your Esthetician can do a more thorough skin analysis.
Additionally, it's advised you don't apply makeup right after your service either, to let your skin drink up all the nourishing products.
Extractions are included in all facials except for the 30 minute session, as it's not enough time to adequately prepare the skin. All other facials, including the back facial will have extractions. Using a hydro extraction process, ultrasound and water vibrate the pores to push out debris and help resurface the skin. While not completely painless, this method of extraction causes less trauma to the skin.
It's important that your hair is long enough. Usually an eighth of an inch (or two weeks of hair growth) is sufficient. Its advised to trim if your hair is too long, as the longer hair is a bit more painful to remove.
48 hours prior to your appointment, you can do a gentle exfoliation to soften the skin. If you are on your period, you are totally fine to receive bikini hair removal, but please note you may experience higher sensitivity.
