When Shelly visited her grandmother in Texas, she overhead her gossiping with other ladies about their tattoos. But it wasn?t a heart-on-the-ankle or flower-on-the-shoulder type of tattoo?rather the ladies had their eyebrows and eyeliner permanently tattooed on their faces. The ladies then took Shelly to get her eyeliner tattooed, and Shelly felt an instant passion for the art. Founding her business in 2002, Shelly holds certificates in permanent cosmetics, designer eyeliner, hairstroke eyebrows, and vibrant lips.
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 consistant 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.
Waking up to a new outbreak of acne can put a real damper on a day. That’s why the aestheticians at Rachel’s Skin Suite specialize in both treating and preventing breakouts. Their anti-inflammatory salicylic-acid mask minimizes breakouts immediately, and their six-session treatment series gradually works on complexions using a blend of acne facials, chemical exfoliations, and stress relief, for long-lasting results. Once skin is in balance, the staff offers supplementary facials that maintain skin’s overall health using advanced ingredients such as collagen, vitamin C, and resurfacing agents. All treatments are customized with a combination of high-powered ingredients, antioxidants, and relaxation techniques, allowing the staff to help clients keep their skin healthy without resorting to face pushups.
