From Our Editors
Sarah Baranek-Magnusek seemed destined for the hairstyling world: her great-grandfather John Kapal worked as a barber in Milwaukee for 70 years, sparking a trend that was passed down to her grandfather, mother, and a slew of other relatives. Today—85 years and four generations of stylists after John Kapal opened his barbershop —Sarah keeps the legacy alive at Unique Transitions Salon & Spa, where she helms a team of seasoned stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Amid the salon's serene environs, they work to meticulously liven up hair, skin, and nails with a vast array of supplies that includes Tigi hair care products, China Glaze nail polish, and Repêchage skin care serums.
The extensive selection of services includes a diverse array of techniques, ranging from cleansing facials and body wraps to manicures, pedicures, and tanning. Stylists forge custom wigs and human-hair extensions alongside technicians that imbue permanent makeup and collagen-induction therapy treatments into epidermises. During each service, the skilled staffers draw from their knowledge of contemporary beauty trends to help enhance clients' desired looks and update the outfits of long-lost mannequins.
