Timothy Stimac, owner of the Bremerton salon and spa that bears his name, has traversed the globe in search of new cutting and styling techniques. His thirst for knowledge and frequent-flyer miles led him to train in Italy, where he picked up some new coloring techniques before hopping over to London to work on his cutting skills. Timothy now shares his international knowledge with his team of stylists, who work with professional products to imbue their clients’ hair with rich color and volume. These products include all-natural selections from Aveda, which infuse strands with pure flower and plant essences. While the stylists condition or clip away at hair, nail technicians stationed nearby scrub hands with butter manicures and mango passion pedicures, gently reproving clients who attempt to lick their palms for a sample of the fruit-infused salves.
Terra Zen Salon evokes an earthy flair with rich mocha- and cream-hued walls and plenty of potted foliage. The stylists cut new dos on women, men, and children, from classic bobs and crewcuts to face-flattering layers. They can also infuse locks with a little drama via highlights, perms, and updos for special occasions such as proms and state swim meets.

Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Our staffers are highly trained professionals in their field. Our massage therapists offer a multi-modality approach to maximize results. We specialize in therapeutic deep-tissue massage at our office, and offer the pampering that goes along with the spa experience, like hydrating body wraps, customized facials, hot-stone massage, and Swedish massage, to mention a few.
Our aesthetician uses Bio Elements skincare products. With Bio Elements, the aesthetician is able to customize your facial and products to your individual needs and preferences. Bio Elements is made in the USA. The company has been around since the early 1990s and has a good reputation for product purity and effectiveness. No animal testing is involved with their products, either.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
"Your office is so relaxing and comfortable."
"Your massage therapists have changed my life. Without their skillful hands, I would not be able to get through a day, much less two weeks, without pain." (This is true for myself as well. I get weekly massages to be able to maintain an active, relatively pain-free lifestyle at 60-something.)
"I'm so relaxed, I feel like Jell-O after my massage."
"I had no idea how toxic my body was until I had regular massages."
"Your massage therapists have increased the circulation in my hands and feet, and now I can ride my motorcycle for hours at a time again."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I worked in the chiropractic field for over 25 years. I have worked in the massage field for over 10 years, and I believe in helping people to realize their full potential for a relatively pain-free lifestyle without medication. I, myself, am a walking success story of what a difference taking care of ourselves with regular massage can mean in the quality of our lives. It is for this reason that I have devoted over 35 years to this alternative type of healthcare.
The technicians at Inspiritu Salon build a community around beauty and preserving the environment as they style their clients? hair, smooth their skin, and relax their muscles with Aveda's nature-based products. They trim women's, men's, and children's shaggy ends as botanical hair and scalp-therapy treatments nourish each strand at its root. The gentle strokes of Swedish massage and the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage loosen tight muscles, with the option of adding warm stones or Simon Says commands to further relax musculature. To refresh facescapes, the aestheticians moisturize and exfoliate skin during the 30-minute facial, and call on essential oils to reduce the appearance of discoloration and dark spots during the Enbrightenment treatment.
One-hundred years. That’s how long the staff of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists have been collectively working in their respective fields. From styling celebrity hair at the Four Seasons Salon in Miami to training at Gene Juarez Salon to designing hair on movie sets and photo shoots, these beauticians possess the experience and talent necessary to give their clients a fresh look and boost in self-confidence. And they do so with a wide slate of beauty treatments. In the salon, Adriana and her stylists cut, color, and treat hairdos. The spa, meanwhile, features mani-pedis, acupuncture, and customized facials that pare down blemishes and wrinkles.
Patti Martin adds flair to her clients’ eyelids, brows, and lips by using the SofTap hand method of applying permanent makeup. This treatment is a more comfortable alternative to the machine method, and Patti also liberally slathers numbing cream on the skin to ensure each procedure is practically pain-free. She creates these long-lasting, smudge-proof looks at her two Wake Up Beautiful locations (in Vancouver and Silverdale), the names of which are an obvious nod to the fact that patrons will no longer have to apply makeup every morning in front of a bathroom mirror or still pond.
