Elizabeth Adam Salon & Day Spa
Amid the fancy storefronts and chic boutiques that line Michigan Avenue lies Water Tower Place—a soaring structure housing more shops, offices, residences and, at the top, the Elizabeth Adam Salon & Day Spa. The eponymous owner started her business in 1987, where she rented a single room in a nail salon in Chicago. Mostly through word of mouth advertising, her one-woman business grew into what it is today: an 8,000-square-foot, family-owned salon and day spa with over 40 employees who provide nothing but indulgent services.
