Trieva Katsandres was driven to start her own spa, and she did so in a single room in Mill Creek. It was so successful, she and her colleague Maysaa were able to expand to a commercial space that allowed them to hire other technicians and offer new services. By 2013, she'd claimed back-to-back titles as Best Day Spa from KING5.
Today, Trieva's Spa & Boutique welcomes clients to two locations, both offering a staggeringly extensive selection of aesthetic services performed by more than 30 employees. In the spa, massage therapists ply muscles with everything from hot-stone to Hawaiian lomi lomi massages, and aestheticians cleanse the face and body with custom facials and body scrubs. There's a hair and nail salon, as well as a menu of extras that includes makeup applications, lash extensions, and teeth whitening.

Zara Beauty and Spa's clients don't need to hop in an airplane to get Eastern-inspired beauty treatments. Instead, they can walk into Zara's soothing confines, where the staff has mastered a wide range of intricate services, many involving natural herbs and ingredients. Staff members can decorate hands with traditional henna tattoos, pluck stray eyebrows with threading services, and incorporate gold-infused products in Ayurvedic-style facials. The spa also offers more contemporary services such as skin peels or microdermabrasions, as opposed to manicures set to techno music.
America, the resident cosmetologist at Zen Salon, has trained in beauty techniques all over the world, from Argentina, Mexico, and Spain to Japan and Korea. She is licensed in permanent makeup and expertly applies eyeliner, lip liner, and eyebrow filler that stays put through showering or falling asleep in a sweat lodge. Other services at the salon include haircuts and mani-pedis with a paraffin dip.

Stylist and cosmetologist Amanda Howards has more in her tool belt than a pair of shears. In addition to creating chic coiffures for her clients, she uses color, relaxers, and extensions to transform locks, and shapes flattering special-occasion 'dos.
