Some Words About Us

The story of Mira Salon and Spa began in 2001, when Amanda enrolled in Pivot Point Academy, located in Bloomingdale. While attending the academy, Amanda acquired the skills necessary to meet her clients’ aesthetic needs while nurturing their physical and emotional well-being. In 2003, she opened Amanda’s Spa and Beauty Services, located on Peace Road. At the same time, she enrolled in the Northern Prairie College of Therapeutic Massage in Sycamore; therefore, rounding out her skills and expertise in serving her clients’ needs, head-to-toe.  

In 2007, Amanda’s Spa moved to South 4th St in DeKalb and joined hands with Aveda, a company on the cutting edge of the natural science of beauty and well-being. This cooperation turned the salon into an Aveda Concept Spa and allows the spa to provide its clientele with the highest-quality products that combine environmental consciousness, social responsibility and pure botanical essence; formulas that are known as Purescriptions™.  

In July 2017, Amanda’s Spa and Beauty moved to Hillcrest Drive and changed it operating name to Mira Salon and Spa.  

The name change was integral to the continued development of the spa as the name encompasses all the things that we strive to empower in our guests.  

This location change also brought about the addition of Davines and enhanced relationship with Eminence Organic Skin Care.  Both are B Company certified which is a measure of a company’s social and environmental performance against the standards in the online B Impact Assessment, a very high level of social responsibility for the planet and society.  

Mira Salon and Spa promises to bring you both exceptional, personalized service and superior products. At Mira’s, you’ll find an environment that’s calm and tranquil. The spa’s relaxing energy fosters a sense of renewal and allows you to re-energize.  Amanda and her expertly trained staff are dedicated to providing you with an optimized experience, which comes from passion and attention to detail.

The spa is wheelchair accessible and all spa and salon services are available for those with special needs. Mira Salon and Spa is both delighted and equipped to cater to groups for any occasion. Appointments may be booked conveniently online or by phone, and walk-ins are always welcomed. Today’s the day to enjoy Mira’s Salon Spa!

Mira is a feminine given name with varying meanings. In the Romance languages, it is related to the Latin words for “wonder” and “wonderful.”[1][2] In South Slavic languages, it means “peace” and is often used as part of a longer name, such as Miroslava (masculine form: Miroslav) or Sławomira (masculine form: Sławomir). In Albanian language, it means “goodness” or “kindness”. In Sanskrit, it means “ocean”, “sea”, “limit” or “boundary”[3] In Hebrew, it is a derivative of Miriam[4][5] or the female equivalent of Meir, meaning light.[6][7]

When Wendy isn’t in the salon she enjoys Spanish TV, interacting with her spanish culture, spending time with her puppy and mom in Villa Park.

Salon and Spa Concierge

I first became interested in this industry because my aunt does nails.  I always thought that it was amazing how something so simple could turn someones day around.  I grew up in Hinkley. I have two sisters, one brother, and one dog.  My mom and dad are always my greatest supporters. I have always enjoyed doing my own nails and regularly ask for new supplies at christmas.   When I’m not at school or working, I love to hang out with my friends or make bracelets.  

I am currently enrolled in a cosmetology program at Debutantes in DeKalb.  Working at Mira is giving me extra experience and allowing me to learn more about this industry.  I am very excited to continue to learn and experiment in my journey throughout this career.
