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.
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.
Hints of nature bloom inside Bellezza by Rali's welcoming interior, where hardwood floors and eggplant-hued walls surround shelves of plants and styling products. Here, resident stylist and color specialist Oralia Schultz siphons 20 years of salon experience as she wrestles weed-like tangles into stylish coifs. When crafting hairdos for men, women, or style-conscious chia pets, she performs thorough consultations to build a look that matches the patron's personality. For a full makeover, she lops off loose ends, adds a splash of vibrant Goldwell color, and styles remaining tendrils with a blow dryer. An experienced manicurist, Oralia also lavishes nails with manicures, pedicures, and polish changes.
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.
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.”
