Our Story

 

The idea of EGA Salon and Spa started in 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina "The Paris of Latin America" when Erika Gonzalez Arandia, hence the name EGA, decided to switch career paths and leave journalism school, to pursue her true passion of cosmetology and medical esthetics. After graduation, Erika gained valuable knowledge and experience having worked in doctors offices, and several salons and spas as well as a brief stint as an educator at a Esthetic school. Her experience has spanned many different places including Buenos Aires, Argentina, La Paz, Boliva New York City, Block Island, RI, until finally settling down in Chicago. Throughout all of this experience, the idea of EGA, was always at the back of her mind. Finally, in the winter of 2015, most of the pieces had finally fallen into place to make EGA a reality and after months of scouting, hard work, and dedication, Erika was finally able to realize the dream of opening her own salon and spa, where she had first settled when she arrived in Chicago, in Lakeview.
