A stress-free oasis in the heart of downtown, Seattle Executive Med Spa offers a tranquil counterpoint to the bustling energy of the city just outside its doors. The spa’s aestheticians and therapists practice their crafts within private treatment rooms, where medical-grade facials help correct blemishes and a combination of traditional and Hawaiian massage styles untie pineapple-size knots or pry away floral shirts that have taken root on backs and shoulders. Though the team specializes in relaxing treatments, they also look to help individual health and wellness through medi-spa treatments. Board certified physicians provide several non-invasive treatments such as Coolsculpting and Ulthearpy. Treatments for anti-aging and weight loss are also available. They can also accommodate large groups for events such as weddings, bachelorette parties, or corporate functions.
A spread of custom spa and salon services foster aesthetic peace in a relaxed, homey setting. Skincare treatments are tailored with Dermalogica's brand of highly customizable products and special salves made in-house to prevent curfew violations. Drawing on Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western medicine systems, the beauty therapists diagnose conditions such as poor circulation and dehydration, which can inform single treatments or a six-week regime to reset skin function. Paul Mitchell and Awapuhi Ginger products help stylists wrangle unruly halos in an intimate salon room with baroque gold mirrors and pink-on-pink stripes. Each treatment is given a heavenly name to emphasize Helle's good and evil theme, which is echoed in the spa's crimson paint job and matching velvet tufted couch.

Shear Madness, located only a few blocks from the University of Washington, is big on boldness. They loudly proclaim the best haircuts in the surrounding University District, and their funky, modern salon space doesn’t shy away from strong décor. Stone walls and flashing street lights set the stage inside this high-ceilinged outpost, while a chalkboard wall declares the prices for each service. A dual-action salon space, Shear Madness caters to both men and women, offering basic cuts, trims and clips for guys and more controlled options for gals. Coloring, waxing, blowouts and full session washing sessions are available, serviced by hip, young stylists that aren’t afraid to point customers towards a certain “in” look.
