From the outside, Craig Berns Salon Spa?s broad porch, white fa?ade, and quaint chimneystack give the impression that the large historical house is someone?s welcoming home. Stepping inside, guests are greeted by a friendly receptionist in an elegant waiting area, replete with rich, wood floors and wainscoting, luminous candelabras, and walls lined with Aveda?s all-natural products. As the co-owners of the Aveda Concept salon and spa, Craig and Mary Beth Berns, along with their staff, treat clients with Aveda?s pure plant- and flower-infused essences. While team members receive consistent training on the latest cutting techniques, men and women alike luxuriate in a slew of services that span facials, massages, and haircuts. The salon and spa has been voted one of the best salons by Milwaukee Magazine in 2010, and one of the Top 200 fastest-growing salons six times by Salon Today, which has taken note of their ever-expanding list of services and lack of training wheels.
A trio of smiling metallic suns behind the reception desk welcomes visitors to Soleil Bleu hair salon. While waiting for their stylist, clients can sink into leather chairs, sipping a complimentary beverage as they admire a wall of gauzy curtains and flowering vases. In the back, stylists cut, color, and texturize hair next to burnt-ochre walls. Stylists collaborate with clients to define and amplify their personal aesthetic, creating multi-dimensional highlights or playful blowouts. Stressed hair can finally relax after a Moroccanoil restorative treatment or luxuriate in a clarifying treatment that removes long-term buildup of product, hard-water deposits, and decaying pencils once tucked behind one's ear. Below the hairline, makeup artists use custom-crafted mineral makeup and Besame Vintage Cosmetic products to give skin a rosy glow.
Many of the team members at The Scizzory Hair Design can boast more than a decade of salon experience, and all of them can claim a professional dedication to staying on top of trends in their field. This allows them to create stylish cuts and creative color treatments from a collection of John Amico organic colors. The skincare and bodywork experts perform skillful waxing treatments, and mani-pedis, which leave hands and feet ready for special events, vacations, or a big night out.
Amy Brissette built Amy B. & Co Salon/Spa as a tangible directive to "honor yourself" through revitalizing hair, beauty, and body treatments. The affable proprietor populates her airy, wood-floored sanctuary with a lineup of spa and salon professionals who delight in escorting clients down the facility's many roads to paradise. A salon area hosts haircuts and highlights, and the private mani-pedi room is designed to program feet with history's most dazzling dance steps.
Warm chandelier lighting, golden-hued walls, and cherry-wood flooring surround patrons as they settle in the mocha salon chairs at Chris & Co. Salon. Stylists impart their expertise in haircuts and coloring, displaying skill lauded in issues of Milwaukee Magazine's Top Salons 2006 and Best Salons 2010. After appointments, clients can opt to purchase beauty products displayed on an extravagant ebony shelving unit amid colorful flowers and red velvety tapestries.
