Our Team

Our team takes pride in the quality of our work and we are always seeking out education in our specialties to continually give you the best service.

Tracy Sternig


Tracy attended the Institute of Beauty and Wellness in Milwaukee, WI. She graduated at the top of her class in 2003. She is continually attending continued education to stay on top of the latest techniques. She holds Certifications in Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning, Microneedling (CIT) and the Oxygeneo+ Super Facial and Skin Firming System.

Tracy loves the challenge of individualized skin care and never skimps on exceeding your expectations of luxury relaxation. She has found her passion in treating acne and anti-aging treatments but never passes up an opportunity to take a waxing appointment. “My goal is to make every person I get the opportunity to work with feel like the best version of themselves; not a predetermined idea of “beauty”. We’re all different and that should be celebrated.”

Stella DuBrava

Stylist/Owner of Stella & June, A Part of Citrine + Sage

Stella graduated from the Vici Aveda Institute in 2009 and has gone on to study at the Sassoon Academy in Chicago, the Arrojo Academy in New York, and with Kevin Murphy and his brilliant team in Las Vegas. She has worked with many product lines and was briefly a color educator, but found it was taking too much of her time away from clients. She currently works with Kevin Murphy products and became a Certified Session Stylist with the brand in 2018.

When it comes to haircutting she excels at everything from precision cuts to razor shags and is a self proclaimed “bangs enthusiast”. She has a special talent for crafting her client’s hair color to their cut as well as personality. If you’re looking to try something new she would love to set up a consultation and brainstorm possibilities with you!

Alexa Fullerton

Lash Artist / Owner AKFR Beauty, LLC, a part of C+S

Alexa has been interested in the Beauty Industry since she was little. She loves that it allows her to follow her passion for creativity so she decided to start her career by getting Triple Certified by Sugarlash Pro Academy, Paris Lash Academy and The Lash Professional.

Her number one priority is a safe and healthy application. She carries a wide selection of products to ensure that she has the right product for everyone she sees. She even has colored lashes and lash charms!

She believes lashes are meant to accentuate your natural beauty and help you express your style. That’s why Alexa has taken additional training; specifically Lash Styling Theory, which has given the skills to know the right lash for your unique style, eye and face shape as well as other facial features to ensure every set compliments each individual client.

James Kaddatz

Brittany Balisteri

Stylist/Owner of Hair Bar MKE, a part of Citrine + Sage

Brittany was born into the Beauty Industry and realized she had a passion for hair at a very young age. She decided to follow in her mom’s footsteps and graduated from The Paul Mitchell School in 2009. She makes continued education and staying on top of current trends a priority.

She’s never met a blonde she didn’t like! Keeping blondes blonde, bright and natural is her claim to fame. Not a blonde? Don’t worry. She can do anything from giving her clients that, “I don’t get my hair colored; it’s natural” look to adding a pop of the latest Fashion Colors or teaching you how to get the look of your dreams with as little maintenance as possible.

She works with Borboleta Beauty Eyelashes and Sjolie Organic Spray Tan products because her clients’ health and safety are her top priority.
