True Beauty & Boutique is located just blocks from the oceanic vistas of Puget Sound. With the guidance of owner Tara Perkins, an aesthetics graduate with more than 15 years of experience, the spa’s skilled staff pampers guests with a lineup of nail and skin services, which includes facials, spa pedicures, lash extensions, and massages. Meanwhile, the boutique side of the business keeps waiting clients enthralled with a selection of scarves, jewelry, and lingerie from Twala Intimates.
After his first time riding a Segway, 11-year-old Gregg Jantz Jr. was hooked. There weren’t Segway tours in his hometown of Edmonds, so he and his father went to the company’s headquarters in New Hampshire to learn more about the self-balancing transporters. They were excited about what they learned there, leading to the creation of Segway of Edmonds.
Today, visitors can take 90-minute tours of Puget Sound. By day, the tours take a historical angle, and educate groups about Olympic Beach and the mills that used to sit along the coast. Sunset tours create beautiful photo ops, and can be arranged to end with dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants. All tours begin with a 30-minute orientation session, and guides stop occasionally to take photos of groups and make sure no one has fused to their Segway. Visitors can also rent Segways for self-guided tours.
Calling themselves the Glam Squad, the stylists and makeup artists at Bellissimo Beauty Bar use products such as Neuma shampoos and conditioners and Hairdreams hair extensions to sculpt the kinds of looks you'd see on the Bangstyle image community. The studio's fun, quirky décor matches the staff's sensibility, blending modern and vintage furnishings with funky touches, such as contrasting upholstery patterns and styling stations setup on the ceiling.
Doctor Gary Wall and his esteemed dental staff at Edmonds Family Dentistry specialize in comprehensive and restorative dentistry for children and adults, including orthodontic treatments with ClearCorrect invisible braces. After patients qualify for the treatment through an initial consultation, a dental professional creates impressions of the teeth to fashion into translucent aligners that patients remove only when eating, brushing, or chewing on a dog bone. The invisible braces gradually pull chompers into proper placement without altering smiles with clunky brackets or wires. Clients return for frequent adjustments until bites look and feel straightened. While waiting for appointments, guests can lounge in the office's spa-like massage chairs or listen to the sound of metal braces being ground into coins on provided stereo headsets.
