Many of the team members at The Scizzory Hair Design can boast more than a decade of salon experience, and all of them can claim a professional dedication to staying on top of trends in their field. This allows them to create stylish cuts and creative color treatments from a collection of John Amico organic colors. The skincare and bodywork experts perform skillful waxing treatments, and mani-pedis, which leave hands and feet ready for special events, vacations, or a big night out.
Amy Brissette built Amy B. & Co Salon/Spa as a tangible directive to "honor yourself" through revitalizing hair, beauty, and body treatments. The affable proprietor populates her airy, wood-floored sanctuary with a lineup of spa and salon professionals who delight in escorting clients down the facility's many roads to paradise. A salon area hosts haircuts and highlights, and the private mani-pedi room is designed to program feet with history's most dazzling dance steps.
Lori Baumann, owner of Tangerine Hair Salon, and her experienced staff mold manes with products by Alterna, Redken, and Sojourn. The spacious salon achieves a trendy, urban feel with slate-blue walls, black polished floors, and track lighting. When guests arrive, plush zebra-print chairs greet their backsides while a coffee pot cheerfully percolates beneath an orange and gold floral painting. Stylists craft new 'dos at stations equipped with full-length mirrors and topped with exotic flowers. When they aren't performing haircuts, adding highlights, or curling locks, they subdue frizzy tresses with smoothing treatments and commands shouted in German.
Clipping, filing, and buffing nails are just the beginning of the mani-pedi experience at Kowalski's Polish. The real treat is watching the nail technicians turn their service into an art, painting everything from animal prints to bumblebees and piano keys on canvases of keratin. Digits are further enhanced with a pinch of glitter, or 3-D embellishments such as miniature gold balls or Avatar finger puppets.
Aesthetician Sara Bohlmann has many tools at her disposal for making skin look its best, from the Image skincare products she uses to create custom facials to the cosmetics she applies during special-occasion makeup sessions. Sara often follows facials with advice on maintaining a proper skincare routine, a practice that helps clients get the most out of Sara's services and stops them from removing their makeup with paint thinner. Sara's successful practices have been noticed by Shepherd Express Best of Milwaukee 2012 as she was nominated "Best Aesthetician" in the online publication's medical category.
The sounds of laughter and lively chatter echo across Tony & Friends Salon and Spa’s expansive studio as stylists revivify scalps and aestheticians refresh skin with professional PCA products. If the stylists need any inspiration for their designs, they need only glance up at the geometric patterns that stretch across the walls or down at the smooth, sleek lines that run across the hardwood floors. The salon hosts girls' night out parties on Friday nights, inviting up to 10 ladies to enjoy complimentary appetizers as the staff applies cosmetics, massages sore muscles, and supplies cotton makeup pads for the gentlest of pillow fights.
