East Town Spa & Salon’s aesthetic teams regularly trek around the country to hone their beautifying expertise and study with experienced Bumble and bumble and Aveda educators. They then tote their refreshed skills back to Milwaukee, where they set to work inside a historic mansion painted in classic rose tones. The team's hair services range from simple trims for beards and mustaches all the way to smoothing treatments for 4-D strand textures. Facials improve complexions with Aveda techniques, and natural baking-soda crystals provide gentle microdermabrasion. A tangerine-tinged pedicure lounge features a cushioned chaise and footbaths, and waxing sessions leave skin surfaces smooth from head to toe.
If you opt for a full month of sun-soakedness, you'll get access to any of U Tan's beds. The state-of-the-art bronzing abode boasts four horizontal and one stand-up faux-sun soaker. The beds are clean and comfortable, and there's complimentary male/female deodorant and body spray in every room. If you opt for a UV-free melanin marinade, one of U Tan's pigment perfectionists will evenly spritz your skin with a safe, golden hue, giving it a natural glow rather than drowning it with a wash of orange that causes the other kids on the bus to call you Nickelodeon. U Tan's friendly staffers offer clients a bottle of water after each tan, so you'll never get dehydrated and try to bite raindrops. Spray tans are by appointment only; the tanning beds are available by appointment or walk-in. U Tan is open late (until 11 p.m.) when school is in session to restore the golden glow of students, nighthawks, and moonbeams.
At the tender age of 22, Keith Zimmerman opened the doors of Keith's Haircenter. Twenty-seven years later, his salon has undergone three renovations, and he's successfully opened a second Redken hair salon in Green Bay. Within the two locations, stylists and aestheticians provide a suite of beautifying services that run the gamut from basic cuts and prismatic color to waxing, tanning, manicures, and hair-loss solutions. The hairstylists at the Redken salon place a special emphasis on Redken's credo of personalized consultations, during which stylists and clients collaborate to find the best-suited cut and color based on face-shape, aura-color, and skin-tone.
In 1963, Dick Ruffolo opened Ruffolo's Hair Studio & Tanning Salon with the help of his brother Gabe, who he hired as an employee. Within the Redken Elite Salon, the current staff of beauty pros snip hair, add color, and create texture as they shape locks and arm-wrestle ponytails into submission. Turning their attention to the rest of the body, aestheticians can administer spa services that range from facials to mani-pedis to makeup application.
A plush sectional couch, flat-screen TV, and fish tank give Soleil Tanning Salon’s reception area the comforting touches of a family room. The same welcoming attention is offered by the attentive staff members, who give each client a piggyback ride to their private treatment room and offer helpful instructions on using the tanning beds and standup booth. A slate of tanning products, including Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, are available for clients’ bronzing experiences.
Though tanning can be relaxing, it can also be time-consuming. Tanning on the Edge's service menu was designed for people who want to tan but may have limited time. During 12- to 15-minute sessions in the tanning beds, guests stay cool and relaxed with circulating air and a satellite radio. A vertical booth accommodates patrons who prefer to tan while standing or who don’t understand how to turn the party sub they are carrying lengthwise.
Nearby, a full lineup of spa services make sure guests are radiant from head to toe. Cosmetologists use Pharmagel and Repêchage products in spa facials designed to clear up acne, firm aging faces, or simply boost radiance. Nail experts turn up the luxury on manicures and pedicures with add-ons such as paraffin dips, acrylic tips, and nail gems, while waxing specialists remove fuzz from nearly any area of the body to make tans stand out.
