Beauty is Perfection at EGA Salon and Spa – a review


We all have busy lives. They involve luncheons, meetings, auditions,shopping, taking care of our families and a million other things. But sometimes with the kids, the job, and the significant other, we forget to treat ourselves. Thanks to a couple friends, I found a great place right in Lakeview  that not only makes you beautiful , they make you feel like a star.

With this blog and my acting career, you never know when you are going to be going to an event or hopping on a plane. So this is definitely the place to go when you have got a full plate and not much time. They treat you like a queen. EGA has many services, but I decided to try them out with one of their signature manicures. It was a pleasurable experience and I will definitely be back.

I walked in and was immediately greeted by none other than the owner, Erika Gonzalez Arandia. Erika is the perfect example of women empowerment . The salon  was her dream and the spa has only been on Halsted for eight months. Erika comes from Bolivia and has worked in Buenos Aires, La Paz , and New York before she came to Chicago . The spa- salon is truly her vision.  She was very hospitable and offered a large selection of beverages. I was quite excited to find out that Erika uses OPI for manicures and pedicures. There was so many to choose from, even some of the colors that I had. I finally found a shade of purple and prepared myself for the pampering. Pampering was the exact thing that I got. Erika is an expert at what she does and she makes the customer feel like they are old friends. I love the idea that i was made welcome and for once I could actually relax my wrist . No tenseness there. The mani was quick, my nails were completely dry with no smears, and Erika even helped me on with the coat so I would be free to just hold my drink and enjoy the beautiful sunshine .

Erika will welcome you as well. EGA also will travel to events, proms, and weddings as well. They take care of you from head to toe. Visit them today at 3009 N Halsted in Boystown. Call 773-975-HAIR.


Erika was awesome and such a sweety . She will take care of you too. Thanks for the great manicure and the hospitality.


The finished product and in less than a half hour…
