Luxurious private suites, spectacular Bellevue Hills views, and experienced, highly educated staffers set Salon Ajavi apart from your typical beauty bar. In 2004, owner Virginia Ricketts—a 24-year veteran nail technician and licensed cosmetologist—opened the salon with her daughter, L’Oréal-certified color educator Hillary Reid. Together, they pamper clients with hair, nail, makeup, and waxing treatments, including specialty services such as fiberglass-nail application, hair extensions, and scary stories that boost tresses’ volume without product buildup. Salon Ajavi offers products from L’Oréal professional, Aquage, and OPI.
The team at Anella Spa offers an array of services, from nourishing facials with peels and masks to body waxing and makeup applications for a night on the town. No matter the service, clients can count on receiving individualized attention, customized to their own skincare needs. Anella Spa's aestheticians pride themselves on getting to know each client and not only providing personalized treatments, but also offering education to help clients take better care of their skin. In addition to services that take place at the spa, the aestheticians often provide their clients with take-home kits to maintain a healthy complexion for easy upkeep between appointments.
Anella Spa maintains an inclusive environment, treating all skin types from sensitive to couperose. This is often completed with natural products, though a vacuum can be used to better skin in some cases. The spa also carries Dermafile, a skin polishing and resurfacing tool which uses finely crushed diamonds, effective for treating aging or sun damaged skin, scars, uneven pigmentation, stretch marks, and fine lines. Through these treatments, Anella Spa aims to enhance natural beauty.
Skin RN Aesthetics has an impressive array of tools within arm's reach. Multiple specialized cosmetic laser systems zap stubble, eliminate spider veins, conceal acne scars, fade unwanted tattoos, or just improve the skin's tone and texture overall by stimulating collagen production and carefully wiping away candy residue. Toward the goal of radiant skin, they also use chemical peels, injectable dermal fillers, and an advanced microdermabrasion system. In addition to these medical-grade treatments, Skin RN Aesthetics also offers more traditional spa services, such as waxing and airbrush tanning.
Bellevue Medispa exalts the power of Iridex lasers to gently reveal smooth, healthy skin. Both FDA-cleared, their two lasers nimbly zap body hair and varicose veins without ablating the skin's surface or accidentally taking out nearby Darth Vader impersonators. The warm beams also stimulate cellular renewal to rejuvenate weathered complexions and gently assuage rosacea and acne inflammation. Staffers have more than six years of experience with cosmetic injections, which they are certified to administer safely in their office or your home, halting wrinkles and plumping skin on-location.
The Ritz Salon's stylists cut and trim the locks of men and women, often using balayage, a French hair-painting technique, to tint strands. Aestheticians completely remove hair during facial waxes and slough off dead skin with microdermabrasion crystals. They further rid your body of unwanted entities with ionic footbaths that detoxify and reduce the need for family members to wear hazmat suits around you.
