Warm chandelier lighting, golden-hued walls, and cherry-wood flooring surround patrons as they settle in the mocha salon chairs at Chris & Co. Salon. Stylists impart their expertise in haircuts and coloring, displaying skill lauded in issues of Milwaukee Magazine's Top Salons 2006 and Best Salons 2010. After appointments, clients can opt to purchase beauty products displayed on an extravagant ebony shelving unit amid colorful flowers and red velvety tapestries.
Four years ago, licensed barber Charlie Bianco decided it was time for men to get back to the basics of grooming. He harnessed all 25 years of his hair-styling experience to open his eponymous Charlie's Barber Shop, ushering clients back through time with his classic barber services.
Though clients may wander in looking unkempt, Charlie and his team of skilled stylists ensure they leave the shop with a flattering fresh haircut and smooth jaw or beard line. But the stylists can do more than just straight-razor shaves and haircuts. They keep things current by manicuring men with eyebrow shaping, deep conditioning treatments, and hair-braiding services. And they don't neglect relaxation as they pamper their clients, massaging shoulders and infusing hot-towel neck shaves with aromatherapy to coax out stress and make beard poltergeists smell fresh.
Badger Health Center’s trained instructors help practitioners find their footing with a healthy schedule of yoga, Zumba, tai chi, and qi-gong ball classes. After checking that they’ve donned tops and bottoms, guests locate their centers at Iyengar yoga classes, which focus the mind with deep breathing and build strength with lengthy poses. Unlike a nougat-filled river, Vinyasa yoga’s low-impact, balance-bolstering poses flow, and Zumba's cardio dance party blitzes stress and calories to the beat of lively Latin rhythms. Slow, meditative tai-chi movements and qi-gong ball exercises aim to tone muscles and balance the chi, an energy thought to course through all living things and talking lava lamps.

Clients reign supreme at Elements Therapeutic Massage. A massage at this studio becomes a custom sojourn through relief and relaxation, spurred on by a unique level system that ensures every sore back and tight shoulder receives the care it needs.
During a consultation with their therapist, clients choose from four levels of massage, beginning at Level 1, which is a light, relaxing treatment, and going up to Level 4, a deep massage designed to undo knots and kinks. Once clients have decided on a level suitable to their needs, therapists blend techniques drawn from modalities such as deep-tissue and Swedish into a revitalizing massage that could calm a jack-in-the-box.
Since each therapist's specialties are different, clients are paired with the practitioner whose specialties meet their needs. Prenatal, hot-stone, and sports massage are a few examples of specialty massages offered by the versatile and experienced bodyworkers.
