Beauty's Bjorn Nasett and Stacy Corbine with The Milwaukee Ballet

Beauty's own, senior stylist Bjorn Nasett along with stylist/make up artist Stacy Corbine, lent their incredible styling skills to The Milwaukee Ballet for the creation of their 2013-2014 season's imagery.  Working together with Milwaukee advertising agency Laughlin Constable and locally-based commercial photographer Jessica Kaminski, Bjorn and Stacy were able to contribute stunning style to several of the most talented dancers in ballet today.  Each image was tailored to best represent the unique season's offerings, classics like Romeo and Juliet and holiday standard The Nutcracker along with spring and winter series and the incredible world premier of Mirror Mirror, an orignal re-imagining of Snow White.  Bjorn employed his renowned skills to create stunning hair styles, crafting phony pony's, falls, wigs, and numerous hairpieces.  Meanwhile, Stacy crafted all of the dramatic make-up sets for each featured dancer.  These arresting images, recently released, will be seen on brochures, posters, billboards, and marquees, throughout the city within the coming year.  Beauty couldn't be more proud of the work these two incredible talents have created for the Ballet and look forward to all that they will achieve in years to come!  It's this talent and creative spirit, within our staff of stylists, that keeps Beauty on Milwaukee's "best of" lists year after year.  Outstanding work Bjorn and Stacy! 

Have a look below at the gallery of images from the shoot.  For more information on The Milwaukee Ballet's coming year, click HERE.

This past Sunday, March 3rd, Beauty brought our bridal expertise to Milwaukee's Magnificent Bride Wedding Show at the Pfister Hotel.  Every year, The Magnificent Bride Wedding Show provides a venue for brides-to-be to sample the services and wares of dozens of local businesses.  Artisans, cake decorators, gown makers, disc jockeys, caterers, and more lay out their tables to entice couples to let them make their special day that much more memorable.

Beauty arrived in style with a team of talented hair-dressers to provide future brides with a sample of our updo abilities.  Throughout the day, bride after bride arrived with champagne flute in hand and sat in our chairs for the Beauty experience.   Whether it was the perfect pony, the chignon, or the classic updo, our stylists gave look after look to the day’s guests.  Beauty is recognized across Milwaukee for our amazing bridal services and packages, and enjoyed the chance to display our skill to such an enthusiastic group of attendees.
