Dr. Dana Morgan is a graduate of University of Washington Medical School—but she's more than a doctor.

Amid soothing earth tones and gleaming hardwood floors, Blisstik Studio augments locks and lashes in personalized, elegant adornment sessions. Monotone tresses can choose from a variety of colorful feathers before a master accessorizer professionally affixes the extension to clients' manes, giving coifs an eye-catching splash of color and ensuring frequent visits by shoulder-parrots. Alternately, owner and certified eyelash-extension expert Megan Ziegler harnesses the allure of Lavish Lashes extensions, which shed off naturally along with clients' own eyelid feelers instead of desperately clinging on until they're peeled off. A specialized adhesive unites each synthetic extension to individual lashes for up to six weeks of full and feathery blinks, winks, and Olympic-butterfly-kiss competitions.
The Mona Lisa’s famous grin fittingly welcomes visitors into DaVinci’s Salon and Spa, an oasis drenched in calm mocha hues where stylists disclose their beauty secrets and elicit grins with works of hair and nail art.

In the adjacent space, hairstylists wielding products by Pureology and Kenra add dimension and color to strands with luminous highlights, or sculpt formal updos and bouncy curled styles for special occasions.
Barcelona's certified laser specialists use the LightShear laser system to permanently remove unwanted hair.

Bella Vie Spa is a one-stop, full-service hair and beauty spa that believes wellness starts from within. That's why the staff takes great pains to ensure everyone who walks into their peaceful downtown Windsor retreat has as relaxing an experience as possible. Quiet, private treatment rooms await clients in search of soothing, hot stone massages or underarm sugaring, a service believed to remove hair more painlessly than treatments that use wax. Elsewhere in the spa, clients sip non-alcoholic memosas during facials, manicures, and bridal trial up-dos, and licensed stylists offer modern haircuts and coloring treatments with products by Redken and Schwartzkopf. And, for the full luxurious treatment, customers can also enjoy a light spa lunch at Bella Vie if they order ahead or book a couples massage.
