Whether it’s your hair or skin that needs rejuvenation, you can rest assured that the staff at Asami Day Spa & Salon will have you covered—sometimes literally. The spa’s skincare treatments include five types of facials designed to exfoliate and regenerate various types of skin. For issues that go deeper than the skin, there are six massage styles to choose from, including a signature spa modality enhanced by the calming scents of botanicals. True to the latter half of its name, Asami also houses a salon in which stylists skillfully remove knots, tangles, and the eggs of nesting birds.
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.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
While struggling with adult acne, I tried microdermabrasion treatments. The results inspired me to go to cosmetology school. I later discovered lash extensions and eventually fell in love with the craft. It's fun to see the dramatic change that lash extensions can create.
