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.
Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan?certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
Zilpa Spa utilizes cutting edge, eco-friendly treatments to bestow professional pampering and skincare guidance upon guests. The body slim wrap employs a fusion of plant extracts and essential oils to slim, firm, and tone the body, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite and donuts that literally went straight to the hips—Zilpa spa recommends several treatments for the best results. A soothing scalp and hand massage supplements the body wrap, leaving mitts feeling mellow and heads less heavy.
The full-service day spa has been in business for over a decade and is headed by founder and clinical director JoAnne Mendenhall, L.P.N., who has over 20 years of medical experience and extensive training in internal medicine, infectious disease, oncology, dermatology and plastic surgery. Pelage's expert staff fosters an elegant atmosphere to ease long-standing political tensions and military buildups along your body's outer borders. One of these aestheticians will exfoliate your face's desert regions and deep-cleanse pores to remove built-up makeup, trapped skin oils, and daily grime with a HydraFacial—bringing new, glowing life back to dull areas while smoothing roughness. A final application of moisture-laden serums will calm skin irritation caused by cosmetics or the voice of Gilbert Gottfried and encourage cellular regeneration. In the process, it will also help reduce and remove fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scars, and hyper pigmentation.

Jessica Chapman rarely offers a service that she hasn't tried herself. For example, she found the Norvell spray-tan formula after experiencing spray tans that missed spots or left her a glowing orange.

Among the other high-end products she uses are "Synthetic Mink lashes" by JB lashes, both the regular and organic Norvell spray tan solutions, and the regular and organic Cirepil soft and hard waxes.
