Good Aveda spa
I am a huge Aveda fan and I have been visiting Spa Bleu for the past 1.5 years. I get my usual hair color & cut and the 60 min facials. Cut & color is inconsistent among stylists so I would pick one that you can work with. Facials are very good. My 1 star is reserved for the lack of space. It is a tiny salon with lack of even standing or sitting space during holidays.

Really good Aveda salon
I love Aveda and used to go to Asha in Schaumburg. I was looking for an Aveda salon nearby and found Spa Bleu in S. Barrington. It is very conveniently located in the Arboretum. Scheduling was a breeze. They accommodated me the very next day. I came in for the Elemental facial and a haircut/color. For the facial: Melissa did a great job explaining the type of facial, skin concerns and products she would be using. She was wonderful and I really liked my skin after it was done. For the hair color/cut: I forget the name of the girl who worked with me but she was great. Did exactly as I asked and I am very happy with the results. Overall, I am happy with the results and got what I cam for. Pros: Friendly, warm atmosphere and salon folks. Aveda tea - it is a must try, the complimentary hand, shoulder and scalp massages, Competent stylists and estheticians. Clean, spacious, relaxing facility. Con: Pricey. I didn't get a price quote over the phone for the color/cut but was told that it starts at $60. I ended up paying twice that. Since, I am happy with my hair, I am not complaining but the salon should mention this to folks making their appointments.

Spa review - Facial
This small spa is separate from the salon. The Aveda tea was delicious. I had an Elemental Facial with Coleen. She did a wonderful job, and my skin felt great for days afterward. The bed had a warming element and the fluffiest blanket I've ever felt . I appreciated the low lighting, having a locker, plush robes and a private bathroom/shower.

I went to Spa Bleu on Sunday for a pregnancy massage. My appointment was at 4pm for a 60 min massage. When I arrived the therapist was not aware that I booked a pregnancy massage and she was not set-up. As a result, she rushed me through the foot soak and all she set-up was some bed pillows folded in half. During the massage, it was difficult to relax because the table was not set-up for a pregnancy massage so it was not comfortable and the massage seemed rushed. Additionally, she pushed on my lower back so hard that I felt massive pain so much that I had to say" ouch that really hurt please stop doing that". Yet when I laid on my other side and she worked on my back again she did the same thing and it really hurt. Then she said the massage was over. Before leaving I saw it was 4:45 so I asked her why the massage was only 45 min when I was being charged for 60 min and she said they were closing at 5pm! My husband bought me this to allow me to have a relaxing massage during my pregnancy yet, I left in pain and did not even receive my full 60 minute massage. Lastly, when working on pregnant customers I think they should have special training so they do not injure or cause potential problems to the mother or baby. There was obviously no training given here.

I have had nothing but great experiences at this spa and I go at least monthly or every other month. Sarah, the massage therapist, is wonderful! I walk out so refreshed, relaxed and feeling so much better.

The best facial I ever had
I've had facials at many Spas before and none of them was as refreshing as the facial I recieved at Spa Bleu. The atmosphere there is quiet and peacefull. Colleen ,The Skin Care Specialist that did my facial does a great job to know your skin and taking the time to give the right facial for your personality. I think my facial lasted over an hour and the head, shoulders and arms massage was just wonderfull. I left feeling very relaxed and my skin felt fabulous.

I went to Spa Bleu for all of my pre-wedding pampering. I have gone to them for mani, pedi, facial, massage, updo and makeup application and every service was out of this world. While they are a bit on the expensive side, you really fantastic customer service and personalized attention. Worth every penny!

I received a spa day from my husband. Manicure, pedicure, Full-body massage and facial. I have not stopped talking about it since. The mani/pedi was better than one from a local nail salon but I don't know if it was that much better to justify the money. The massage/facial cannot be compared though. I felt relaxed from the moment I walked in until I left. I also did not get the feeling like I was being sold their products. Although I did buy some I did not feel pressure like i have in some salons. I looks forward to going back in a few weeks.
