At MJ's & Company, seven beauty specialists serve up hair services and relaxing massages. Stylists and aestheticians dabbles in cuts and color as well as facials and waxing. Massage therapist Cherie, on the other hand, specializes in multiple massage modalities, including trigger point, Swedish, and deep tissue. Each specialist works independently, and clients can book their appointments online.
“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.
Service providers meticulously beautify clients inside Stella's Salon with skincare and nail-care services. Staffers such as Sarah carefully analyze clients' complexions before facials, so they can then customize treatments to their skin type. The multitalented nail technicians also paints dazzling hues onto fingernails and toenails during mani-pedis, which may include relaxing paraffin treatments.
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.
Ariel’s work has appeared on runways, theater stages, and TVs, but he seldom sets foot on stage or in front of a camera. The stylist, color specialist, and owner of Ariel Hair Studio has been tapped to style and color hair for fashion models, the cast of The Phantom of the Opera, and numerous television personalities. He also spent a decade in the Miami Financial District and mastered the art of crafting polished hairstyles that toe the line between professional and sexy. He’s brought his experience to his salon in Milwaukee, where he and his staff provide haircuts, coloring, and chemical services to clients and professional models prepping to strut down the runway or stand still on the airport's moving walkways.
