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.
In a sleek, modern space, alternating red and brown walls provide a bold backdrop to pastel-yellow seats and hanging teardrop-shaped ceiling lamps as Anton's Salon & MSpa's talented staff greets customers. Looks are transformed and bodies receive potent doses of relaxation via a full slate of services, including haircuts, massages, makeup applications, laser hair reduction, and Botox injections. Stylists happily snip off 9 inches of patrons’ ponytails or pet ponies’ tail hair so strands can be donated to Locks of Love before offering a trendy haircut free of charge. Additionally, the team of trained professionals helps churn out tomorrow’s beauty pros in Anton’s Academy, which features an apprentice program and workshops.
Clients reign supreme at Elements Therapeutic Massage. A massage at this studio becomes a custom sojourn through relief and relaxation, spurred on by a unique level system that ensures every sore back and tight shoulder receives the care it needs.
During a consultation with their therapist, clients choose from four levels of massage, beginning at Level 1, which is a light, relaxing treatment, and going up to Level 4, a deep massage designed to undo knots and kinks. Once clients have decided on a level suitable to their needs, therapists blend techniques drawn from modalities such as deep-tissue and Swedish into a revitalizing massage that could calm a jack-in-the-box.
Since each therapist's specialties are different, clients are paired with the practitioner whose specialties meet their needs. Prenatal, hot-stone, and sports massage are a few examples of specialty massages offered by the versatile and experienced bodyworkers.
Located steps from Pewaukee Lake’s gently lapping shores, Tranquility Salon mirrors the calming nature of the beach with the comfort it provides its guests. The salon caters to clients with the hair, nail, and massage services each taking place within its walls. A team of stylists transform locks with cut and color services, and nail technicians release subjects' inner beauty by rendering manicures and applying shellac polishes. Licensed massage therapists, meanwhile, release inner tension through relaxing and therapeutic modalities. Therapists Amy and Bonnie perform Swedish, lymphatic, and craniosacral massages in a hushed heated room—designed to quiet jittery thoughts about why the car recently started speaking and calling itself “103.6, today's hippest jams.”
Licensed massage therapist Kelle Staszak understands that muscles are like tiger stripes: no two sets are the same. That's why she tailors relaxation, deep-tissue, and lymphatic massage to each client's need—whether they're looking to sooth a sore spot or just lie around with their shirt off for a while. During 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions, she keeps lines of communication open, adjusting and modifying techniques to locate muscle knots and stay well within clients' pain threshold.
