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 staff at Lavish Salon and Spa's sole intention is to bring out clients’ natural beauty with hairstyling, eyebrow-shaping, and nail-painting services. The team took the same approach to its salon space, sprucing up the once-basic storefront with paisley-print wallpaper and etched ceiling tiles that make art out of what might have been an easily overlooked feature. More subdued hues color the private treatment rooms nestled away from the bustling salon floor, keeping the atmosphere in those safe beauty havens as relaxed as a royal guard on his day off. For each service, the staff pulls from a stock of hand-selected products that includes several all-natural options from Aveda and the acclaimed Moroccanoil line.
Exquisite Threading's eyebrow-fashioning operation is led by a team of experienced threaders plying the ancient depilatory art in a soothing environment. Brow bearers seeking a refined look recline in the studio's comfy chairs as expert weavers adroitly lasso loitering hairs, expelling them at the root. A natural and chemical-free treatment, threading spares patrons much of the discomfort, swelling, and redness of waxing.

During her popular 30-minute shellac manicures, she first shapes nails and corrals cuticles with a series of precision snips. Next, she applies a durable, glossy shellac coating, which wears like a polish but strengthens nails and remains chip free for up to two weeks. Basic pedicures generally take 45 minutes and groom lower digits with OPI polish and botanically based products.

East Town Spa?s aesthetic teams regularly trek around the country to hone their beautifying expertise and study with experienced Bumble and Bumble and Aveda educators. They then tote their refreshed skills back to Milwaukee, where they set to work inside a historic mansion painted in classic rose tones. The team's hair services range from simple trims for beards and mustaches all the way to smoothing treatments for 4-D strand textures. Facials improve complexions with Aveda techniques, and natural baking-soda crystals provide gentle microdermabrasion.
