Frommer's highly recommends the Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art, and KING5.com named it one of the top five museums in the 2010 Best of Northwest Escapes voters' poll. The Seattle Times also featured the museum. Five Insider Pagers give the museum an average of five stars, and four Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average.
True to its name, A Bit of Europe Spa & Wax borrows elements from Europe to beautify and pamper its clients. The spa experts call on salt from Greece to detoxify and exfoliate the skin, and mud from Italy to draw out impurities. The spa’s collection of French aromatherapy wafts relaxing scents through the air while clients enjoy a facial, bask in a body wrap, or try to remember what lavender smells like.
In the lobby of Helen Wax Spa, a waterfall burbles down an etched glass pane and into a stone basin. The water?s quiet murmur sets the tone for a space that is at once bold and soothing?modern artwork hangs on yellow, orange, and red walls and soft rays of sunlight stream in from floor-to-ceiling windows. Just beyond the main space, Helen and her technicians administer body waxing and facials for both male and female clients. Their specialty treatments use vitamin C to brighten, glycolic acid to exfoliate, and seaweed to calm and soothe the skin. And inside the onsite boutique hair salon, stylists perform cuts, color treatments, and emergency hair extensions for balding Barbie dolls.
