Aesthetician Sara Bohlmann has many tools at her disposal for making skin look its best, from the Image skincare products she uses to create custom facials to the cosmetics she applies during special-occasion makeup sessions. Sara often follows facials with advice on maintaining a proper skincare routine, a practice that helps clients get the most out of Sara's services and stops them from removing their makeup with paint thinner. Sara's successful practices have been noticed by Shepherd Express Best of Milwaukee 2012 as she was nominated "Best Aesthetician" in the online publication's medical category.
The sounds of laughter and lively chatter echo across Tony & Friends Salon and Spa’s expansive studio as stylists revivify scalps and aestheticians refresh skin with professional PCA products. If the stylists need any inspiration for their designs, they need only glance up at the geometric patterns that stretch across the walls or down at the smooth, sleek lines that run across the hardwood floors. The salon hosts girls' night out parties on Friday nights, inviting up to 10 ladies to enjoy complimentary appetizers as the staff applies cosmetics, massages sore muscles, and supplies cotton makeup pads for the gentlest of pillow fights.
The team at Roots Salon beautifies clients from head to toe with a full slate of services. Stylists revamp manes with trendy cuts and color, as well as add instant length with hair extensions. Inside private rooms, aestheticians tailor treatments to clients’ skin concerns—reducing sun damage with chemical peels and boosting collagen with phyto-stem technology. Soreness melts away beneath soothing massage kneads, and complexions are quickly enhanced with waxing treatments and makeup applications.
The seasoned stylists at Charlie?s East Coast Hair Designs keep skin radiant and strands carefully arranged with haircuts, facials, and massages. Inside Charlie's, a black leather couch hosts visitors, and the granite-topped color bar holds varied shades of hair for customer perusal. Plants provide a backdrop to the tile-floored beauty palace where aestheticians spruce up visages with facials or makeup, coating skinscapes with elegant coloring or neon-green in-house chlorophyll.
At Amazing Grace Spa, aesthetician Julie Janes helps clients look their best with a host of soothing beauty services, including her specialty anti-aging and acne treatments. Along with facial treatments, the spa offers massage, makeup, and waxing services.
LaVita Laser's founder and practiced aesthetic nurse Erin K. Lehto recaptures skin's youthful allure with vivifying photofacial treatments. The 20- to 30-minute noninvasive procedure helps drastically fade the appearance of age spots, broken capillaries, and acne by shining concentrated light pulses along epidermal slates. LaVita's skin specialists describe the photofacial's relatively painless zaps as feeling similar to the snap of a rubber band or the smooch of a besotted hummingbird. After the treatment, visitors emerge sporting smoother skin tone and texture, prompting an increase in phone calls from admiring suitors and physicists demanding time-machine blueprints.
