Salon Mairéad and Day Spa's skin treatments, haircuts, and massages earned it a nomination for Best Day Spa in Western Washington in 2011. High quality skincare products form the basis for many of the spa's luxurious treatments, including creams and anti-aging serums from Dr. Spiller Biocosmetics as well as eco-friendly body butters from Bend, Oregon-based Dani Natural Products. The spa also boasts an on-location boutique that invites departing guests to bring bits of bliss home with them in the form of spa products, handcrafted jewelry, accessories, and books-on-tape narrated by literate morning doves.
Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.
Located across the street from Lakewood's Clover Park High School, this warm, intimate hair salon specializes in relaxers, fashion-forward haircuts, and Paul Mitchell color. With licensed stylist Tricia at the helm, clients can pop in for a Brazilian blowout—a semi-permanent smoothing treatment—or prep for a special night out with a roller set or natural press. Along with hair services, the studio offers bikini and Brazilian waxing to ready bodies for daring swimsuits or even more daring mini-snowsuits.
Superior Tan and Massage's tanning beds can bronze physiques—or, thanks to their three intensity levels, enhance them with just a touch of gold. Since 1994, the salon's cutting-edge technology and expert team have collaborated on custom tans. Sunless tans are also available in the Mystic booth; the infrared body wraps, meanwhile, perfect beach bodies further by neutralizing cellulite.
