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.
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.
Medical Director Dr. Marilyn Tompkins, ARNP, busies Radiant MedSpa's staff with an array of services that refine skin surfaces. Injectables such as Botox and Sculptra free faces of wrinkles or circles around the eyes that reveal age. IPL photofacials and fractional skin-resurfacing treatments leave skin as brilliant as an Einstein wrapped in reflective tape; the spa's laser systems can also halt hair production in follicles or zap away spider veins. Glycolic or lactic acids reveal youthful skin and fight blemishes during chemical peels, and HCG weight-loss programs bolster weight loss with a combination of booster shots, protein shakes, and vitamins.
At her eponymous salon nestled behind the mirrored glass of Ultimate Salon Studios, aesthetician Stacy Sullivan zeroes in on blemishes, wrinkles, and body hair. With skincare products from Dermalogica and organic Hungarian line Éminence, she customizes each facial to accommodate her clients’ skin type. For more intense exfoliation, she employs lactic- and glycolic-acid peels and Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare peels. Lash and brow tinting enhance facial features, and an arsenal of wax and sugar paste banishes their mustaches, leg fuzz, and clingy area rugs.
At Shimmer Airbrushing & Esthetics, tans don't come from sun exposure—they come from a handheld airbrushing gun. The custom, organic tans are applied with the MaxiMist XL gun and take less than five minutes. And because they are applied by hand, they hug the contours of the body better than spray tans applied via tanning booth or garden hose. The studio complements its natural-looking tans with assorted facials using Dermalogica products, airbrushes make-up, and eyelash extensions that render mascara obsolete.
Treat Yourself Day Spa is the place to go when major relaxation is needed. Here, licensed massage therapist and owner Shannon and her staff of wellness professionals offer several different modalities of massage, from prenatal and deep tissue to injury and hot stone, as well as rejuvenating spa treatments. Facials, waxing, and chemical peels are all on the service menu?clients can even have eyelash extensions or eyebrows tinted.
