In Domani Salon and Spa's foyer, a chandelier among earth tones exemplifies the feelings the staff wishes to inspire: lavish beauty mixed with a pure serenity. On the left, a café dispenses coffee, smoothies, juices, and sandwiches, and on the right, rows of beauty products stand at the ready. And directly in between, a front-desk coordinator awaits to lead clients to a styling chair or treatment room. Owner and master stylist Tricia Voigt—alongside her team of hairstylists and spa technicians— pampers women, men, and children alike with services including haircuts, coloring, massages, and facials. Domani also curates a variety of wedding packages so brides can focus on the moment instead of worrying about hair, makeup, or glitter stains.
Juanita Sell, Healthy Image's resident aesthetician and nail technician, tends to the beauty needs of clients with an eclectic mix of services. Several facials offered aim to calm and beautify the skin, extract blemishes, and slough off stuck masks via exfoliation. Candling evicts excess earwax, and footbaths attempt to neutralize toxins in the entire body. Extremities emerge meticulous from manicures and pedicures, and waxing services oust unwanted hair.:m]]
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.
Lynn Duncan is a proud perfectionist. “In this business, I’d have it no other way,” she says. At Lynn Duncan Permanent Cosmetics, the multicertified practitioner makes sure her clients' makeup is flawless—and permanent. She also offers microdermabrasion, teeth whitening, and eyelash extensions.
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.
Client comfort and hygiene are top priorities at Pure Nails and Spa. The former is achieved through mani-pedis, aromatherapy footbaths, and massages, as clients are offered free vitamin shakes to sip on and the staff plays meditation music to keep the mind from busying itself by firing synapses at random brain cells. The staff is trained and certified in hygienic practices, making each treatment a clean, safe, and rewarding experience that results in a new look and renewed state of mind.
