No matter how busy you are, Jennifer Winkler says she can help you take care of your skin.

Winkler opened The Facial Bar late last year, with the idea of helping people take care of themselves at an affordable price, and look healthy and beautiful no matter how pressed for time they are.


The business along the Randall Road corridor, at 2761 W. Algonquin Road, has a boutique studio vibe, with five beds for facials, as well as two private rooms for waxing and eyelash extensions.

Winkler opened the business in October 2018, saying she felt the area was missing professional spa treatments at an affordable price. It is a draw for residents up and down the Randall Road corridor, she said, because it appeals to so many people in today's world who are busy, looking to save money and wanting to look their best.

"The concept of The Facial Bar is for the everyday person in this busy society, from splurge to smart," she said.

"Many people don't have time to take care of themselves, busy mom and dads. The Facial Bar allows clients to get facials on lunch break or if you are in a rush but need to take care of your skin," Winkler said. "A modern spin on the classic facial, our facials are 35 to 40 minutes -- with no undressing -- by licensed aestheticians."

In addition to facials, chemical peels, waxing and lashes, The Facial Bar also offers makeup applications for special occasions, date nights, proms and weddings.

The business also hosts private parties, including birthday parties, girls night and bachelorette parties.

"At The Facial Bar, our team spends time collaborating to find the newest products and innovative treatments that address all skin types and concerns and continue to further our knowledge in the world of aesthetics," Winkler said.

This is the first business for the Algonquin resident, but Winkler says she is hoping to expand to multiple locations in the future.

The business is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
