Clients visiting Linda Racinowski of Waukesha Clinic of Electrolysis and Nails can kiss unwanted hair goodbye. A licensed health professional, Linda wields fine probes to both remove hair and prevent its regrowth. The treatment works on all skin types and can be performed virtually anywhere on the body. In addition to electrolysis, the clinic offers soothing mani-pedis and deeply exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
Beneath vaulted ceilings and chandeliers, Aqua Nail Studio's resident nail pro toils over talons, shaping digits and treating paws to hydrating paraffin waxes. During manicures and pedicures, she softens skin with aloe vera and coats nails in chip-resistant polish. A pair of neighboring spa pedicure stations allow friends or rival concert pianists to be polished in tandem.
Three-time salon owner Beth Sadowski immersed herself in the art of hairstyling at Universal Academy Beauty School and while training with Bumble and bumble. This experience enabled her to open the doors to Wild Side Salon in 1996. There, she welcomes entrepreneurial stylists to join her by snipping locks and shaping nails at stations that they own themselves, creating a full-service salon where each team member is entirely invested in his or her practice. This opportunity has drawn stylists with an average of two decades of experience, including experts who have trained with Vidal Sassoon and Aveda before landing at Wild Side, where they perm manes and add depth with highlights. The salon’s aestheticians take over where the coiffeurs leave off. They treat nails to polish, hands to paraffin treatments, and visages to custom facials and glycolic peels, which combat signs of aging such as fine lines and leave skin as smooth as a cube of jello.
The stylists and aestheticians at the full-service Salon West and Body Works Spa aim to make clients feel beautiful, empowered, and worthy of every minute of pampering. They perform a variety of services to help purge minds and bodies of impurities, from microcurrent facials to acne-clearing scrubs. The salon’s master stylists shampoo and blow-dry hair before sculpting it into busts of George Washington, and steady-handed nail technicians tend to hands and feet with luxurious manicures and pedicures.
The team at Roots Salon beautifies clients from head to toe with a full slate of services. Stylists revamp manes with trendy cuts and color, as well as add instant length with hair extensions. Inside private rooms, aestheticians tailor treatments to clients’ skin concerns—reducing sun damage with chemical peels and boosting collagen with phyto-stem technology. Soreness melts away beneath soothing massage kneads, and complexions are quickly enhanced with waxing treatments and makeup applications.
At Amazing Grace Spa, aesthetician Julie Janes helps clients look their best with a host of soothing beauty services, including her specialty anti-aging and acne treatments. She also provides facial treatments, makeup, and waxing services.
