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. A tangerine-tinged pedicure lounge features a cushioned chaise and footbaths, and waxing sessions leave skin surfaces smooth from head to toe.

The stylists at Knick Salon and Spa cultivate an urban oasis where organic and vegan products, eco-sensitive cleaning agents, and methodical recycling practices reign. Inspired by Aveda founder Horst Rechelbacher, the stylists refuse to cosset clients with anything except safe and nutritious concoctions by companies such as Phyto, Eufora, and Intelligent Nutrients. In their chandelier-lit workspace, they blend their mastery of cutting and coloring techniques with continuing education to expand their minds and give their hair more room to grow. That commitment to nature-inspired quality extends to the spa side as well, where mani-pedis powered by essential oils, paraffin-free masks, and organic sugar scrubs bring life back to tired hands and feet. In the private massage room, therapists ply muscles with soothing bodywork made all the more relaxing by infusions of jasmine and frankincense or the warm touch of hot stones. Tired muscles also meet their match in the spa's Alpha Capsule—a dry-heat sauna that promises each client heated vibration massage, aromatherapy, and a relaxing bowl of alphabet soup.
