Next, when you arrive at Thrive Salon and Spa 805 S. Neil St in Champaign, you will park behind the building off of Neil Street in the parking lot behind and to the left, it is directly behind the brick one-story building. Then enter the building through the doors on the back side and take the elevator to the 2nd floor. Due to COVID-19, some of our usual amenities will not await you in the entryway until it is safe to but, we are now offering self serve beverages again. Please wear a mask and go immediately to the restrooms to wash your hands upon entry.
Then your stylist will walk you through a your consultation process. We will plan out, not just your first visit, but a long term plan to ensure all of your goals are met whether for hair, nails, skincare or waxing. Sensitivities, placement and formulas will be custom blended for you and recorded in our computerized database so that it is always ready and waiting for you at each visit. Please be sure to utilize our wifi on your own device as we will not have magazines or tablets available during this time.
Your hairstylist will create a cut perfect for your face shape, lifestyle and overall goals. Styling tips and tricks are always shared and we will wrap up the visit by sharing our recommendations for at-home care and set you up with your next appointment! Your stylist or esthetician will take any products off of the shelf for you that you want to purchase and pay for and package up for you per his or her recommendation.
If you are visiting the spa, you can expect the same level of service from our Esthetician. She will go over any concerns, sensitivities, and a plan for your current visit and your future beauty regimen. We recommend you scheduled a Customized Basic Facial for your first visit and based on your consusltation, Jessica will build a custome skincare treatment and go over any pricing changes with you prior to the service.
