Capricio Microdermabrasion Benefits

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Capricio Salon and Spa offers Microdermabrasion as a skincare service. Microdermabrasion is a medical technique for removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The Wand removes this layer of skin by gently abrading the skin with natural diamond chips while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of skin leaves a smoother texture and promotes new growth.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Convenience is one of the significant microdermabrasion benefits that make this procedure so popular. Microdermabrasion treatments are often referred to as the “lunchtime facial” because they can be completed in as little as thirty minutes at an aesthetic clinic or cosmetic dermatologist’s office. Because the microdermabrasion procedure is non-surgical and virtually painless, it is a safe and highly effective way to restore a clear, youthful glow to the skin.
DocShop can help you find a cosmetic dermatologist in your area today.

Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead and dull surface layers of the skin, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. Many patients see dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of treated areas after just one treatment. Microdermabrasion can also improve:

•Oily or dull skin
•Enlarged pores
•Clogged pores
•Fine lines
•Mild acne scars
•Mild complexion problems (such as uneven pigmentation or poor skin texture)

The benefits of microdermabrasion also include enhanced circulation and lymph flow, which promote the internal health of the skin.

Of course, Capricio Salo&Spa can customize any facial to each individual’s needs and you’ll leave feeling refined and refreshed! For more information about our skincare services visit us at http://www.capriciosalon.com/services/skin-treatments

Capricio Wedding Packages

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

A wedding is a special day that you will remember forever. You will share your photographs from that day with family and friends, and they will remain a precious keepsake.

Achieve the image you’ve always dreamed of, let Capricio Salon & Spa bring out your inner beauty! Capricio Salon & Spa will make every bride look amazing on her special day.
Our bridal service begins with a thorough consultation, discussing with you all of your ideas, thoughts and aspects of your wedding. We recommend this visit should be at least six months before the wedding day. We will also discuss whether you have any ideas of wearing any accessories such as tiaras, a veil, flowers or barrette. Whenever we use flowers in a bridal design you can be sure they are real and bursting with vibrant colors.
To achieve your desired look, you may require other services ahead of your big day. This may include extensions, airbrush tanning or color and cut. In these instances, we can draw up a pre-wedding hair plan to ensure your hair is healthy, glossy and vibrant in plenty of time for your wedding.  It is always a good idea to try out the style you have chosen ahead of the big day. This will last between one and three hours depending on whether you wish the bridesmaids to be involved.
It’s beneficial to have a trial run, as it instantly removes one of the biggest causes of stress on your wedding day. Additional trial runs can also be arranged if you wish.
We would be more than happy to come to your home, hotel, or venue of your choice if you prefer to have your hair styled outside of the salon.  You will awake on your special day knowing that you are already destined to look your best.

Featured Stylist of the Week: Jackie

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

My name is Jackie, and my passion for hair began at an early age- it has only continued to grow since! I began my career as a stylist in Madison at Martin’s school of Cosmetology. In an attempt to advance my career, I traveled to San Diego where I was further educated in Redken color and cutting techniques. I later relocated to the Milwaukee area to start my career. Thanks to hard work, advanced education, and dedicated clients, I am now a level two stylist at Capricio Salon and Spa.
In Madison, I assisted the owner of a prestigious salon and became educated in Graham Web and Schwarzkopf product lines. I’ve been lucky enough to attend the Redken Symposium in Las Vegas and the Midwest Beauty Show in Chicago. Similarly, I’ve completed numerous coloring, cutting, and technique classes including a Rusk Blow-Dry Bootcamp, a Michael Cole Salon Development course, and a class taught by world-renowned Redken stylist Sam Villa. My work with hair and makeup can also be seen in various Milwaukee photo shoots, fashion shows, and 4PM magazine. Continued education is a large part of who I am as a stylist, and I plan to develop my skills by learning all that I can. I would love to one day work as a Redken platform artist as well as work behind the scenes on runway shows and photo shoots.
I pride myself on the fact that I am a well-rounded stylist. Using inspiration from seasons, classical films, style, trends, and colors, I can create the look my guests dream of. I really enjoy being able to make people feel better, whether it be through a completely different hair color or a simple scalp massage. I love a good challenge, and I take every guest’s needs seriously. Beauty will always be a part of my life, and I am very excited to share my professional edge with you!

Featured Stylist of The Week: Geri-Beth

Featured Stylist of the Week: Geri-Beth

My name is Geri-Beth, and I am a stylist at Capricio Salon and Spa. As a student of the Gill-tech Academy of Hair Design, I excelled in hairstyling and coloring, and won school-wide competitions in both categories. Since graduation I have continued to learn new techniques, grow personally and professionally,and stay on trend with the latest hair colors, cuts, and styles. I see my profession as much more than a job—to me, hair styling is a form of art, and it is my greatest passion.

Before beginning my career at Capricio, I took numerous advanced courses including Eufora long hairdressing, Tigi cutting techniques, Joico ColorTrends, Chi Color Trends, Schwarzkopf “Essential Looks for a Modern Life,” Iso Current Trends, Andis Clipper Cutting, Schwarzkopf Product Knowledge, and Unite Product Knowledge. I am certified in Schwarzkopf color, Cinderella Hair Extensions, and Chi Silk Japanese Hair Straightening Specialist. Now I am a Brazilian Blowout certified stylist at Capricio Salon & Spa, the only professional smoothing treatment that improves the health of the hair.

I excel in cutting, fashion-forward coloring, and multi-foiling techniques. Since joining the Capricio team, I’ve participated in various Redken Advanced Color courses and technique development classes. Outside of the salon, my work was featured in a fashion show at Decibel Nightclub. Models sporting my work can also be seen in various Fashion Bug photo shoots andrunway shows. My future career goal is to become an educator so that I can share my craft with stylists around the country.

I take pride in the fact that I have extensive training in multiple areas of the hair industry. Similarly, I am constantly striving to be the best. As a Stylist, I believe that listening and communicating is the key to creating a personalized cut, color or style. I will listen to my client’s needs and wants and deliver beautiful, precise results. When asked, I will share my own creative ideas to fit each individual’s lifestyle. I believe that hair trends are inspired by international fashion and I stay current on the latest trendsand techniques. I create a professional yet fun environment, and I enjoy seeing my guests happy!
