Sarah Gordon believes in the mind-body connection. To that end, the licensed aesthetician and reiki master uses both Eastern and Western techniques to help clients look and feel better at Wauwatosa Wellness Spa. She also draws on her medical background, including her training under a prestigious plastic surgeon. Sarah and her staff offer facials and more advanced aesthetic treatments, such as chemical peels and exfoliating dermaplaning treatments. Reiki and massage therapy are available here, too?a testament to Sarah's belief that inner and outer beauty are connected, much like daily naps and happiness.
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.
Paulina Esthetics Boutique channels the beautifying talents of three aestheticians, a cosmetologist, and a massage therapist, into a menu of spa services performed with high-quality products. Soft and hard waxes gently snatch fuzz from sensitive skin and serums tailored to specific flaws renew faces and reverse the signs of too much time spent with shar pei puppies. An organic airbrush-tanning formula bronzes bodies to one of three sun-kissed sheens, and colorful Lash Candy extensions frame eyes with a rainbow of sparkly hues. The boutique salon is outfitted with dark woods and trendy furnishings, like vintage chic furniture and ambient lighting.
A comfortable, inviting salon, Fringe administers follicular alterations using gentle products and careful precision. All Brazilian waxing sessions are handled by resident aesthetician and 10-year industry veteran Stefanie Corbett. In the comfort of a quiet, private room, Stefanie works her hair-wicking magic using Cirepil hard wax, a plant-based substance imported straight from France. Strip by strip, unwanted hairs will be banished from the body, allowing ladies to depart with the comfortable advantage of long-lasting hairlessness. This 45-minute procedure produces more potent results than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek and easily scared back into the follicle through the use of well-banged pans or the threat of another wax.
