OCONOMOWOC — While there are certainly other businesses
offering hair and beauty services in Oconomowoc, Tricia
Voight would like to think hers offers something unique.
confidence in her service is part of the reason Voight
chose Oconomowoc as the home of her latest business
endeavor: Domani On The Lake.
two-suite space leased out of the historic Queen Anne
building at 317 North Lake Road, Domani On The Lake
offers full hair, nail and makeup service. This model
isn’t at all foreign to Voight — she has owned and run a
more expansive operation, Domani Salon & Spa, at 1149
Boughton St. in Watertown since 2006.
Watertown operation has 14 hair stations, a nail room, a
spa that offers facials, massages, body waxing, eye lash
extensions and hair extensions.
Voight believes Oconomowoc is in need of a a
full-service spa experience, but those services are not
yet being offered at her new location. She does hope
those services could be brought to Domani On The Lake in
the near future.
Despite offering all of these services in the Watertown
community that is relatively nearby, Voight isn’t
concerned her new and old operations will clash with
each other when it comes to clients. She said Oconomowoc
residents don’t head to the Watertown operation as much

repeat clients in Watertown.

the community, Voight said there is a unique energy in
Oconomowoc and that she wanted to take advantage of that
Whatever that energy is, it has meshed well with the new
business. Voight has one other employee, Sabrina Roethle.
Voight said she had planned on bringing in another
stylist three months after opening, but the early
business Domani has gotten has encouraged her to hire a
new stylist sooner.
comfort that’s palpable
Voight said she wants each customer to feel comfortable
the moment they enter Domani. To accomplish this, Domani
provides a hot towel and “tranqulity welcome,” which
includes personalized therapy and a slight shoulder
Domani isn’t intended just for women. Voight said men
who get haircuts are given a warm towel with mint oil, a
slight facial massage, a cool mist spray and facial
addition to providing space for Voight, the Queen Anne
building is also the home of Divine Salon and Day Spa,
which is owned and operated by Darlene Cullinane.

“Divine started as a small boutique salon suite offering
expert comprehensive hair services with over 25 years of
experience in the salon industry. Recently, Divine
reached an agreement to expand salon services to Domani,
a Watertown- based Salon looking to add an Oconomowoc
location,” David Cullinane explained. “The two salons
operate independently but cooperatively, offering a
comprehensive line of hair, nail, makeup and special
event professional services in a turn-of-the-century
historic building in a serene lakeside setting.”
