Seattle Hill Nails and Spa's staff calls upon more than two decades of experience every time they brush vibrant polish across fingernails or wipe away a face’s wrinkles. All of the spa’s guests—royalty or otherwise—are invited to sit in crimson pedi-thrones as technicians rejuvenate their feet with a sea-salt scrub and lower-leg massage. An even more relaxing experience unfolds during the signature pedicure, which adds a cooling mask and a dip in paraffin wax. The spa’s refreshing facials exfoliate and hydrate all types of skin; certain skin-specific facials target blemishes and discoloration resulting from acne, aging, and employment in the Blue Man Group.
Oasis Airbrush Tanning provides a safe tanning alternative to bathing in the sun's harsh gaze. The half-hour tanning sessions impart a beautiful bronze glow with a special spray-on formula. Unlike emotionless robot applicators of spray-booth tans, Oasis Airbrush Tanning's experienced airbrush artists personally apply the product, helping to ensure an evenly applied tone that doesn't leak onto auras. Each treatment is customized, with different levels of tan available for different preferences or skin types.
At After Image Styling Salon, patrons benefit from the lock-lopping experience of an amiable crew of educated stylists who continuously update their skills to reflect current tress trends. In a women's or men's haircut, mane mavens consult with clients and the oracle at Delphi to fashion follicles to suit individual styles. Sip on a complimentary cup of java from the salon's coffee bar as a stylist trims and blow-dries tresses before molding head lawns into hip 'dos or yak-shaped topiary using ripped-from-the-runway products from Paul Mitchell and ABBA Pure & Natural. For hair not in need of a chop, the salon can toast and tame tufts with just a blowout. Heads receive these attentions in an earth-toned interior that exudes a chic ambience with leather furniture, warmly hued hardwood floors, and barber chairs fluent in French.
Marion Barber specializes in treating men’s manes while surrounding them with a masculine environment. As customers are greeted with a complimentary beverage to satiate dry mouths, well-hydrated minds and eyes will be able to successfully focus on the game scores on the shop’s flat screens rather than anxiously watch the non-basketball playing clippers in the barber’s hands. Each precision cut is tailored for individual head owners. Strands are prepped for fresh styles or a trim to the ‘do that’s been working well for years with a wash and exfoliating scalp massage. Although razors today come with newfangled five-blade systems, aloe goo, and shark-teeth powder, facial follicles respond best to the sharp simplicity of a straight-razor back-of-neck shave and hot towel service, which has the side benefit of feeling wonderful and relaxing.
Kids Kuts' patient stylists trim the flowering follicles of larval- and pupal-stage humans in a fun setting of rainbow-painted walls, checkerboard floors, and bins full of toys. The colorful furniture has been scaled to accommodate wee ones and elfin tourists alike. Once your child’s name is called, he or she will be wrapped in a zebra-print haircut cape and hop aboard a miniature fire truck, police car, or motorcycle chair. Stylists are sensitive to little tykes' fears and irks and know how to keep them relaxed, having spent 18 years working undercover as moles in the seedy nursery underworld. An array of family-friendly movies will keep kids mesmerized while their noodle nests get washed, combed, trimmed, and blow-dried. Finally, your sheared lamb will hop out of the seat sporting a fresh cut plus a sticker or wand-mounted zazzle bomb, aka lollipop. Other services include bang trims, braiding, and a baby's first haircut—which Kids Kuts commemorates with a certificate and 10-piece marching band.
