Sarah Baranek-Magnusek seemed destined for the hairstyling world: her great-grandfather John Kapal worked as a barber in Milwaukee for 70 years, sparking a trend that was passed down to her grandfather, mother, and a slew of other relatives. Today—85 years and four generations of stylists after John Kapal opened his barbershop —Sarah keeps the legacy alive at Unique Transitions Salon & Spa, where she helms a team of seasoned stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Amid the salon's serene environs, they work to meticulously liven up hair, skin, and nails with a vast array of supplies that includes Tigi hair care products, China Glaze nail polish, and Repêchage skin care serums.
The extensive selection of services includes a diverse array of techniques, ranging from cleansing facials and body wraps to manicures, pedicures, and tanning. Stylists forge custom wigs and human-hair extensions alongside technicians that imbue permanent makeup and collagen-induction therapy treatments into epidermises. During each service, the skilled staffers draw from their knowledge of contemporary beauty trends to help enhance clients' desired looks and update the outfits of long-lost mannequins.
At Sunseekers Tan, skin darkens beneath five types of tanning bed and in front of the nozzles of the Mystic Tan sunless spray system. Customers can augment their tanning experiences with an array of lotions to keep skin from drying out and flaking.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists. Use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($19–$32) and lean back and dream of break-dancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head-hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring ($50–$65), highlights ($65–$100), or a perm ($65–$85). Prices vary by location.
