Q&A with Melisa Hensley, Independent Contractor, Nail Designer

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?

I do acrylic nails mixed with glitters of all shapes and sizes to add a lot of sparkle. I call these confetti nails.

Do you offer your customers any extra perks?

Coffee and magazines.

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?

[I decorate using] modern blues, teals and neutrals.

Old-school detailing meets new-school styling at Groom For Men, where a staff of well-trained, passionate barbettes morphs mops and unwieldy locks into eye-catching coiffures. Form and function stand as the pillars of each artisan's training, enabling them to execute low-maintenance, easy-to-style cuts that fit snugly to individual head shapes and fidgety shadows. Follicle services stretch past standard snips and into more daring territory, including full coloring and highlights, and straight-razor shaves and beard trimmings complete makeovers by smoothing facial veneers. Traditional manicures are also available for hands that have lost their luster thanks to demanding jobs, such as checking the insides of baseball gloves for wasps' nests.

Asian-inspired folding fans and hand-painted cherry blossoms adorn the walls of Options Salon & Spa, a destination for hair, body, and skin services available six days a week. To create silky smooth locks, the resident stylists reach for KeraCare and Paul Mitchell products as well as natural-looking extensions, which are intricately sewn, fused, or braided into the hair. During exfoliating body scrubs, aestheticians massage epidermises with a sea-salt or sugar mixture, which is blended with aromatic scents such as rose or cranberry pomegranate. The crew also caters to male clientele with personalized spa packages that include a men’s facial, an all-natural mani-pedi, a deep-tissue massage, and an optional celebratory chest bump.

Ariel’s work has appeared on runways, theater stages, and TVs, but he seldom sets foot on stage or in front of a camera. The stylist, color specialist, and owner of Ariel Hair Studio has been tapped to style and color hair for fashion models, the cast of The Phantom of the Opera, and numerous television personalities. He also spent a decade in the Miami Financial District and mastered the art of crafting polished hairstyles that toe the line between professional and sexy. He’s brought his experience to his salon in Milwaukee, where he and his staff provide haircuts, coloring, and chemical services to clients and professional models prepping to strut down the runway or stand still on the airport's moving walkways.
