mother'sday banner

Everyone can agree that mothers are influential on the type of person you have become today. They were your first teacher, your personal driver, helped you when you were sick and held you when you were hurt. There’s no other job like a mom and when it comes to Mother’s day it’s sometimes hard to pick the perfect gift that say “thank you”. Considering how much they do for us, we suggest you give the gift of relaxation. Capricio Salon and Spa is offering $20 to your next service when you purchase a $100 gift card for your mother! This way you can treat your mother and yourself.

Giving a gift card from Capricio Salon and Spa allows your mother to choose how she wants to be pampered. Whether it’s a fresh haircut, gorgeous shellac nails or a relaxing massage, your mother deserves to get what she wants. Many people choose to buy clothes, candles, or flowers but sometimes what a mom really deserves is peace and quiet.   Our salon features not only hair services but skin and nail treatments as well. She can even customize her own facial targeting her skin concerns or get microdermabrasion that will repair skin to look younger. The options at Capricio Salon and Spa are endless and we want to make this mother’s day special. Our salon has received the Talk of the Town award for three consecutive years (awarded upon consumer reviews) which means there is no doubt that when she comes to us, she will be pampered!

Don’t end up second guessing your gift to your mom. She deserves the very best, so stop in the salon today and buy a gift card – your mom will love you for it!

To give proper recognition of all the amazing mother’s out there, we have created a Mother’s Day Makeover contest. To nominate your mother for this contest please look at our Facebook page for details.

Airbrush Tanning Benefits

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

  Everyone loves a beautiful tan, no matter the season. What we don’t love, the awful damage that UV rays do to our skin. Need a solution?! Airbrush tanning is the easiest and safest way to get a healthy and sexy tan. With no sun required this is the best alternative for your skin to remain healthy but still have a sun kissed glow.

This is a great option for a last minute wedding, work function, or for everyday wear! Generally lasting up to 10 days with the right care, you can have the sun kissed look all week long! This is also a popular service for guests going on vacations that tend to get sun burned easily. The tanning solution is derived from sugar beets and contains the main ingredient DHA. It is an FDA approved solution, this is a smart and effortlessly way to brighten your skin.

What’s the number one trick for keeping your tan lasting long and looking fresh? MOISTURIZER!  Making sure your skin is exfoliated really well before you head in for your airbrush tan is key. You also need to limit physical activity for a recommended 12 to 24 hours after. This ensures that you get the full benefits from your tan and maximum results will show. After that it’s just moisturizing in the morning and at night. Keeping the skin hydrated in the winter especially is important when prolonging your tan.

We’ve all heard of or used the bulky machines that do the spray tan for you, right? But we all know that they can’t get in the nooks and crannies of our bodies. Our esthetician is specially trained to give you the best looking airbrush tan you’ve ever had! With having a hand held airbrush machine, she is able to cover every area of the body and avoid any streaking or missed areas that can occur with the machine tanning.

Capricio offers: haircuts, Redken hair color and highlights, Brazilian blowouts, keratin relaxers, Japanese relaxers, extensions, Motives make-up applications, bridal party services, special event hair and make-up, facials, air-brush tanning, microdermabrasion, Brazilian waxing, bikini waxing, threading, body hair removal.

Hair Extensions at Capricio Salon & Spa

Hair Extensions at Capricio Salon & Spa

Are you bored of your current hair style and want to change it immediately? Hair extensions can add instant length volume, thickness or highlights to your hair in just a few hours. They can be attached to your natural hair using many different methods available today. For example, there is bonding, cold and warm fusion, sew-in, braid-in, heat-sealed in and even clipped in. The hair that is used can be synthetic or human and varies in price and quality. The method of attachment often times dictates the type of hair that will be used.

Hair extensions can be a little pricey, especially if you are going for quality. You definitely get what you pay for with hair extensions, as they are not cheap. Many stylists receive special training from various hair extension companies and become certified to perform specific methods of attachment. Hair extensions are not a one size fits all, and some methods may not be suitable for certain hair textures and conditions.

Here is a list of the TOP FIVE reasons that women and men get hair extensions added to their natural hair.

1. Add INSTANT length, volume or thickness to their hair. They have always wanted long hair or thicker hair and for whatever reason have never been able to grow their own hair out.

2. Cover up a really bad haircut. So, you got a really short shag hair style and you absolutely hate it? Solution: Hair Extensions

3. Add bold or subtle highlights to your hair without chemical processing.

4. Get a new look for a special occasion, i.e. wedding, prom, formal even.

5. Just for fun!!!! Some people like to experiment with their hair styles. Hair extensions offer an instant new look.

In short, Hair Extensions can be a fun and exciting way to add length, volume and highlights to your natural hair. It is important to do your research on hair extensions by finding out about the different methods available, finding a qualified stylist and maintaining the hair extensions once they are in.

Stylist of the week: Constance

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

My name is Connie, and hair is my greatest passion! I graduated from the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness, and worked as a stylist for two years before relocating to Capricio Salon and Spa. I thoroughly enjoy the cosmetic industry because of the freedom it gives me to be creative, artistic, and professional simultaneously. I have a strong drive to succeed, and I value the importance of continued education. I finished working as an associate to Munem Abukhamireh, the owner of Capricio Salon, and I am working to develop my own business as an individual stylist.

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 excelled in my schooling at the Aveda Institute, and continued my education long after graduation. I participated in the Master’s Training Program at Neroli, and my work was featured in fashion shows for local Milwaukee businesses including Ma Jolie, Moct, Soho 7, and Luci Boutique. I’ve trained under Vivienne MacKinder, David Adams, and Ginger Boyle—masterminds in the hair business. Similarly, I’ve taken advanced coloring and cutting classes in an attempt to cultivate my technique. Ultimately, I would love to work for magazines or alongside red carpet stylists to create show-stopping looks or open a salon in my name.

I wouldn’t trade my profession or career for anything in the world. I love the beauty industry, and I love translating that passion into fresh and creative cuts, colors, and styles. I enjoy working with all types of hair, especially all spectrums of blonde and short cuts. I am personable and always willing to go the “extra mile” to achieve client happiness. I also take pride in the fact that I handle constructive criticism well, and I guarantee my work. I understand that every guest has a story to tell, and I feel that hair should be a reflection of that individual’s story. What sets me apart from other stylists is that I will never tire of gaining experience and education…and I will give you the hairstyle you crave!

Capricio Staff of the Week: Emma

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

My name is Emma and I am a student at UW-Milwaukee. I joined the Capricio team when I moved to Milwaukee full time. I grew up in the Madison area and worked in salons throughout high school. I love the salon atmosphere and always try to give clients the attention they need so they have the best experience possible. I love the world of fashion and beauty and believe self-expression is an important aspect of being happy. There is so much creative freedom in the beauty industry and I love keeping up with new trends and gaining knowledge in the hair and skin care world.

Art, photography and nature are some of my biggest passions. I also love to snowboard and stay active. Milwaukee is an amazing city and has so many unique places, restaurants and venues to experience! I feel lucky to be a part of beauty industry in such a unique city!

My career at Capricio Salon and Spa, I hope you’ll join me for the ride. I look forward to working with you! Be sure to check out our facebook page for more events, specials and discounted services from Capricio Salon and Spa.

Capricio Salon & Spa, located on the eastside of Milwaukee, with our talented hair and skin technicians, will give you the time and energy necessary to provide you with a unique and stylish look that complements your personality and lifestyle.

Additional services include: cut and color, keratin thermal relaxer, threading, facials and airbrush tanning.

Emma recommends you try our Airbrush Tanning Spa Service. Airbrush tanning is the newest trend for maintaining a glowing yet safe tan. It is a great alternative to sun exposure, tanning beds, and even self tanning lotions that you can buy in stores. Both sun exposure and tanning beds can be extremely harmful to the skin, causing development of burns, wrinkles, freckles, moles, and even forms of skin cancer. Self-applied self tanning lotions can be frustrating because they are hard to apply and often do not provide the most desirable results. Get a head start on your spring tan. We can schedule your free consultation, for a free gift!

Not sure what to choose for your hair or skincare needs, call Emma to make your appointment at 414-967-0100. For more information about Capricio visit:

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!
