Enough with the winter doldrums. It's time to slough of dead skin, relax those hunched shoulders, and add a little shine to that lackluster head of hair. (Or, maybe that's just us?) In any case, it's time to update our most gorgeous annual list: Chicago's 38 Essential Beauty Stores, Salons, and Spas.

This is where you lovelies come in. We're looking for tips on what deserves to be on this year's list. Know a spot that has the exclusive on the creamiest-ever lipstick from France? Hip to a salon that stocks beautifully scented beard oil? What hole-in-the-wall spa offers divine massages, and which cosmetics counter deserves half your paycheck? Tell us all your beauty secrets in the comments (or email us), and we may incorporate your tips into our next guide to Chicago's 38 Essential Beauty Spots.
