Lori Baumann, owner of Tangerine Hair Salon, and her experienced staff mold manes with products by Alterna, Redken, and Sojourn. The spacious salon achieves a trendy, urban feel with slate-blue walls, black polished floors, and track lighting. When guests arrive, plush zebra-print chairs greet their backsides while a coffee pot cheerfully percolates beneath an orange and gold floral painting. Stylists craft new 'dos at stations equipped with full-length mirrors and topped with exotic flowers. When they aren't performing haircuts, adding highlights, or curling locks, they subdue frizzy tresses with smoothing treatments and commands shouted in German.
Clipping, filing, and buffing nails are just the beginning of the mani-pedi experience at Kowalski's Polish. The real treat is watching the nail technicians turn their service into an art, painting everything from animal prints to bumblebees and piano keys on canvases of keratin. Digits are further enhanced with a pinch of glitter, or 3-D embellishments such as miniature gold balls or Avatar finger puppets.
The Parlor Salon and Spa serves as the official styling center for the Milwaukee Bucks Energee! dance team, administering tress-to-toe glamor with a talented team of aestheticians and a full line of Aveda products. Haircuts ($16+) combine a shampoo and styling to condition and manage manes before teleporting them to the lighter side of the spectrum with highlighting services ($65+). Enhance digit decorum with a spa manicure ($29+) and pedicure ($44+), or bring epidermal terrain to infant smoothness with facial ($11+) or body waxing ($18+). A full list of facials rounds out the beautification menu with airbrush tanning ($16+) available for bronzing backsides and counterfeit Grammys.
Stylist and certified color specialist Deanna believes color treatments should do more than change the hair?s appearance; they should improve hair overall. After 12 years and multiple color classes, she has become certified in Scruples hair-color techniques, which are designed to get hair glowing with vibrant reds, brunettes, and blondes while infusing strands with silicone conditioners and safeguarding hair against sunlight by absorbing UV rays. In addition to her high-end hair services, Deanna also primps nails with mani-pedis and artificial nail applications.
Hints of nature bloom inside Bellezza by Rali's welcoming interior, where hardwood floors and eggplant-hued walls surround shelves of plants and styling products. Here, resident stylist and color specialist Oralia Schultz siphons 20 years of salon experience as she wrestles weed-like tangles into stylish coifs. When crafting hairdos for men, women, or style-conscious chia pets, she performs thorough consultations to build a look that matches the patron's personality. For a full makeover, she lops off loose ends, adds a splash of vibrant Goldwell color, and styles remaining tendrils with a blow dryer. An experienced manicurist, Oralia also lavishes nails with manicures, pedicures, and polish changes.
Though Perfect Ten Nail Salon’s technicians have no problem looking guests in the eye and greeting them with a warm smile, their attention quickly wanders to hands and feet as they set to work trimming, primping, and polishing nails. The experienced technicians keep acrylic and Shellac polishes close by their manicure stations, making use of the colorful bottles when the time comes to embellish nails with colorful portraits of their wearers. Manicures and pedicures also tend to skincare needs with flourishes such as oil rinses, foot massages, and soothing paraffin treatments.
