The marble-patterned side tables and gilded footbaths make Kenmore Happy Nails' pedicure chairs truly throne-like. The staff members work to make their clients feel like royalty while rendering manicures, pedicures, and other spa treatments such as waxing and eyelash extensions. They also specialize in permanent makeup, filling in lip lines and eyebrows.
Aesthetician Suzan Tajer started Ancient Secrets of Beauty in 1991, and over the years, she's specialized in two types of treatments: waxing and Lipomassage. The latter treatment attempts to fight cellulite with vacuum suction and two rollers that fold and unfold the skin. When it comes to waxing, Suzan can shape brows, erase unwanted mustaches, and make arms and legs so smooth and aerodynamic that clients accidentally take flight.
Her true specialty, however, is Brazilian waxing. Suzan saw the trend approaching way back when she opened her salon, and immediately she started developing her own techniques. Today, Suzan's quick Brazilian treatments shun strip waxing techniques in favor of wax that shrink-wraps around the hair as it dries. Her Brazilian waxing techniques have earned her a number of mentions in both local and national magazines, such as Allure and The Premier Seattle Monthly.
