Massage therapists, nail technicians, and aestheticians form the task force at Zeka Salon & Spa. Their mission: to help their clients look and feel their best. This may sound simple, but the team takes great care to ensure that every spa visit is a memorably relaxing one. Whether you're winding down with a massage in a dimly lit room or chatting with the technician as she carefully applies mink lashes, you'll never feel out of your element?that is, unless you want to. The stylists can drastically change your look with haircuts, highlights, and perms, making it easier to stop strangers in their tracks but harder to convince your mother that it's still you.
A luxurious interior welcomes men to Weldon Barber, which blends a warm, modern aesthetic with rustic accents, such as a fireplace tucked into a stone wall. While waiting for a cut or shave, guests sink into plush leather chairs and sip complimentary coffee, cola, or bottled water while feasting eyes on a flat-screen TV or a selection of men's magazines.
During signature haircuts—the shop’s bread and butter—stylists commence to pamper with a shampoo and a scalp massage before snipping away extraneous strands to craft a custom haircut inspired by a favorite celebrity or janitorial mop. A delicate detailing of brows, ears, and the nose eliminates rogue facial hairs, and a hot face towel and neck shave leave visages smooth. Clients can pair cuts with a timesaver or a signature shave to quickly and comprehensively free jawlines of five o’clock shadows. Throughout the entire andro-aesthetic adventure, stylists lavish clients with Aveda, Jack Black, and American Crew products.
Under the watchful gaze of owners Breyana and Kenny Oliver, the staff at Haute Philosophy Salon style male and female clients’ hair with the 100% sulfate-free Paul Mitchell product line. The stylists trim ends or overhaul hairdos after discussing it with the clients and their evil twin, in addition to moisturizing dry strands with Awaphuhi wild-ginger products enriched with protein and vitamins. Hair extensions in a variety of shades and textures add length and volume, or feather extensions bring bright color accents. Facial-waxing services and moisturizing hand treatments round out the list of beauty treatments. Light walls surround white styling chairs, silver chandeliers, and a color bar stocked with Paul Mitchell hues, creating a modern atmosphere with a touch of coziness from the plush couches in the waiting area and a glass dome filled with complimentary Otis Spunkmeyer cookies.
Situated on a quaint, tree-lined street in downtown Kirkland, Hair Factor & Spa's salon helps men and women sport a signature 'do with haircut, coloring, and texturizing services. After consulting with one of the attentive stylists, manes are tamed with precise snips to shape a new cutting-edge 'do or a classic style. Coloring services include permanent and semipermanent treatments to cover up grays or to help superheroes blend in with civilians. The stylists can also retexturize clients' hair, infusing locks with basic and spiral perms or performing a Japanese straightening treatment.
The stylists and aestheticians of Bella Sirena Aveda Salon rely on the plant-derived products of Aveda for their slate of salon and spa services. Each product, from shampoo to skin moisturizer, represents more than 30 years of researching the best uses for botanical ingredients, a process Aveda calls “Soil to Bottle.” Aveda products are shipped in eco-friendly packaging, earning them a respectful head nod from every plant and animal they pass.
