The skilled technicians at Elegant Nails Design know that true beauty lies in the littlest details. That’s why they keep nails looking presentable no matter the occasion, treating clients to services ranging from simple manicures to inimitable airbrush designs boasting swirls of color. Inside their brightly lit salon, the dexterous staff members soothe hands and feet, readying nails for sweeps of all-over polish, acrylic white tips, or French manicures known for the replica croissants that grace each finger. Although the beauty masters are mostly known for their nail services, they are equally versed in salon and spa treatments such as waxing, facials, and haircuts.
Kelly, one of the nail technicians at Hair and Nails 4U, can recreate a work of art on your nails. Bring in a picture of a colorful flower or an abstract design and she'll paint it onto your fingernails after giving them a cleansing and relaxing manicure. That's just one staff member, and just one service of many available here. The staff specializes in both hair and nail design, and they offer cuts, coloring, and perms as well as waxing and oil treatments. Some other nail treatments include gel and acrylic manicures.
By its appearance, Bliss Nail Spa seems like something out of a classic sci-fi film. Set under soft, comforting lighting, dramatic curves and arches ensconce the nail stations and massage chairs, as if echoing the vision of a shining future in which individuals can simply step into a sleek chamber, close their eyes, and be instantly transported to a peaceful getaway. Although it remains tethered to the present, Bliss Nail Spa is no less tranquil, pairing its manicures with lotion massages and Japanese-style hot-stone treatments. For a quick respite, clients can sit back for a pedicure-accompanying chair massage lasting 10?25 minutes, letting them get back to the everyday stresses of today's world, such as fleeing from flying cyber-sharks.
Seattle Hill Nails and Spa's staff calls upon more than two decades of experience every time they brush vibrant polish across fingernails or wipe away a face’s wrinkles. All of the spa’s guests—royalty or otherwise—are invited to sit in crimson pedi-thrones as technicians rejuvenate their feet with a sea-salt scrub and lower-leg massage. An even more relaxing experience unfolds during the signature pedicure, which adds a cooling mask and a dip in paraffin wax. The spa’s refreshing facials exfoliate and hydrate all types of skin; certain skin-specific facials target blemishes and discoloration resulting from acne, aging, and employment in the Blue Man Group.
Eclectik Salon isn't a massage-therapy studio, but the staff takes particular pride in its scalp massages. In that vein, staff members start visits by washing hair with a soothing lather, then perform one of the salon’s signature hair services, which include haircuts, foil highlights, perms, updos, and extensions. Because Eclectik is a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, hairdressers tame and style hair with exclusively Paul Mitchell products. They also participate in continuing education in ultramodern hairstyling techniques, which explains why Eclectik is the only Seattle-area salon that can properly style stainless-steel robot hair.
Along with making their clients' fingers and toes look groomed and glamorous, safety and cleanliness are top priorities for the techs at Shayla Nails and Spa. They sterilize all of their pedicure baths between each visit to ensure a germ-free soak, use sterilized metal implements that are clean enough to use as drink swizzles, and use organic sugar scrubs. These practices provide clients with a welcome peace of mind, allowing them to sit back and relax while nails receive vibrant coats of OPI or CND polish.
