Nestled in downtown Milwaukee, Salon Gorg––short for gorgeous––transforms tresses with face-flattering cuts and bold color highlights. After soliciting an expert stylist for a weave or one of their specialty hair braids, patrons can also request relaxing add-ons such as hot towels, massages, or uplifting bedtime stories.
The staff at Glamorosa! Salon & Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with haircuts and color treatments and mani-pedis using all-natural Aveda products. The spa side of the salon features body-polish treatments infused with mango, aloe vera, and Caribbean essential oils and facials infused with natural skin-brightening exfoliants.
Using advanced techniques and top-quality haircare products from lines such as Bumble and Bumble and Kerastase, the friendly coiffure-coddling stylists at Alta Moda snip, shape, and prune noodle nests into fashionable head drapes. Services such as the female cut and style ($35+) and style dry ($25+) beautify heads of hair after they’ve been used by badgers as beds, and coloring treatments imbue strands with the loveable essence of rainbows.
At The M Spa, customers can relax and unwind with a large variety of pampering beauty services. Experienced aestheticians apply makeup for weddings or special events, and offer soothing facial treatments to cleanse pores and brighten faces. Other treatments include skin peels, waxing, and massages.
As a personal trainer certified by the American Council on Exercise and a licensed massage therapist, Chris Aiello, Jr., has a thorough knowledge of the human body. He created Workout Boss as a facility where clients can tap into his expertise to address issues related to health, posture, and injury all in one place. He chats with patrons during personal-training sessions, encouraging them while blending cardio and a range of exercises in a gym with free weights, cable machines, kettlebells, and punching bags. On massage tables, therapists employ specialized techniques such as myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, which aim to straighten postural irregularities and detoxify muscles, and utilize deep-tissue massage to ease pain from sports or other injuries. The trainer also draws on a stock of recipes and nutritional advice to help clients augment workout plans and shed inches.
