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.
Namaste Salon & Spa’s team of experienced stylists, makeup artists, and aestheticians pampers guests with a variety of hair and skin services. Stylists trim manes on women, men, and children, as well as perm hair, straighten it, and imbue it with color. Aestheticians pamper weary visages with soothing facial treatments, and a makeup artist applies cosmetics for special occasions and trips to the mailbox.
Medical Director Dr. Roger B. Olsson joined The Renewal Center as a way to let his naturally artistic eye flourish through custom cosmetic treatments. Dr. Olsson’s team, led by medical aesthetician and certified laser technician René Steele, performs several skincentric procedures that restore suppleness with lasers, fight acne with infrared rays, or increase empathy for Smurfs with blue face paint and a mirror. They also work with clients on an FDA-approved weight-loss program proven to purge pounds while boosting energy. Most of The Renewal Center’s procedures require little to no downtime, meaning after their procedure, clients can leave the office and immediately attempt to lasso any loose mechanical bulls they come across.
The stylists at Diversity Salon bring a range of talents to their salon chairs, allowing them to treat hair of all ethnicities and texture. Services tend to the needs of both men and women, and include haircuts, relaxers, color, and waves. The staff also offers cosmetic services such as eyebrow waxing and makeup application to enhance natural features and cover up permanent milk mustaches.
The massage therapists at Edmonds Massage Center untie deep-tissue knots and de-stress bodies with their array of treatments. A series of kneads and deliberate strokes ease muscles plagued by subcutaneous stress during the 30-minute deep-tissue massage, effectively working to remedy a host of maladies including circulatory problems, lower-back pain, and the stress of battling incognito robots. The 30-minute relaxation massage coaxes tight muscles into submission and helps aches and pains to melt faster than an ice-cream cake lit on fire.
"Shanngri La" is a play on owner Shannon Harper's name and the term Shangri-la, which means "a place of complete bliss and delight." Within Shanngri La's relaxing confines or at a location of the customer's choice, Shannon performs Swedish and deep-tissue bodywork paired with tranquil music, aromatherapy, and skin-nourishing oils. Shannon also has ample experience remedying more substantial problems, such as locked-up joints or that James Taylor riff that's stuck in your head.
Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.
