True Beauty & Boutique is located just blocks from the oceanic vistas of Puget Sound. With the guidance of owner Tara Perkins, an aesthetics graduate with more than 15 years of experience, the spa?s skilled staff pampers guests with a lineup of nail and skin services, which includes facials, spa pedicures, lash extensions, and massages. Meanwhile, the boutique side of the business keeps waiting clients enthralled with a selection of scarves, jewelry, and lingerie from Twala Intimates.
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.
The crew at T Hair N Nails Salon not only cuts, styles, and colors manes, but also grooms their clients’ nails. They keep scalps cool with buzzcuts or add long layers for volume. During manicures and spa pedicures, the technicians coat nails with glossy polishes or french tips.
