Though the vibrant crimson walls and the flat screens in the bar area fight for it, it's the rich red and green enchilada sauces at Salsa Cafe and Cantina's that steal diners' attention. The sense parade continues into the more subdued dining room, where freshly made guacamole with a secret blend of seasonings builds excitement for the meal ahead. The menu features traditional favorites, such as the slow-cooked and seasoned Mexican-style carnitas, but it also weaves creative Latin flavors into dishes such as the Venezuelan hot dog with cabbage and crushed potato chips, and embellishes American tastes with a trio of burgers. Meal encores take the form of red velvet cake, cinnamon crispies, and Chocolate Rage cake, the only known cure for Hulk rampages. Such innovative fare has not gone unnoticed in the community—Carol Deptola from the Journal Sentinel raves about the dishes in her three-star review.

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.

Though Perfect Ten Nail Salon’s technicians have no problem looking guests in the eye and greeting them with a warm smile, their attention quickly wanders to hands and feet as they set to work trimming, primping, and polishing nails. The experienced technicians keep acrylic and Shellac polishes close by their manicure stations, making use of the colorful bottles when the time comes to embellish nails with colorful portraits of their wearers. Manicures and pedicures also tend to skincare needs with flourishes such as oil rinses, foot massages, and soothing paraffin treatments.

At Skin Paradise, licensed aesthetician Cindy Mayer custom blends Bioelements Professional Skin Care products to harmonize each client’s complexion. The one-hour session starts with a deep pore cleansing that clears away lipstick marks left by old aunts before an exfoliation and extractions refine the skin’s surface. Mayer then massages the face, neck, and shoulders to energize wearied upper bodies. Last, a therapeutic mask penetrates epidermises with nutrients and inspirational battle hymns to help combat oiliness, dryness, or blemishes. The custom facial may lead to a more glowing mug, and Mayer recommends treatments every four to six weeks to maintain optimal skin health. Every session includes a hand paraffin treatment, and clients can request an eye treatment for $10, a foot wax for $15, or a compliment about their ear symmetry for free.

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.”
