After stepping into 20 Volume Salon & Spa, the front desk’s river-rock background immediately foreshadows a relaxing day of pampering. At the 2,600-square-foot Aveda Concept establishment, visitors can unload their stresses in the guest lounge or on the outdoor patio before their appointments. Clients look into the large, plum-framed mirrors at each of the salon area’s 11 styling stations, where they can watch as a stylist renovates their hair with precision cuts, classic Aveda scalp treatments, coloring, and updos. Inside 20 Volume’s private treatment areas, patrons achieve a movie star appearance with complexion-balancing Enbrightenment facials, rosemary-mint body wraps, and sparkles meticulously installed into their smiles.
Élan Nails and Spa sets itself apart with little luxurious touches, including deep pedicure chairs, organic lotion, and high-end nail polishes. Clients relax in the plush pedicure thrones as nail techs trim, shape, and polish hands or feet with OPI polish. A leg and foot massage completes the relaxing experience. From the ceiling dangle oversized golden stars, which guide guests to the spa's private aesthetician’s room where specialists perfect complexions with customized facials and stardust harvested in-house.
The skilled technicians at 4D Nails work in a variety of artistic media—natural and acrylic nails, traditional polish and Shellac—to beautify fingers and toes. They first prepare their clients' digits by filing nails into handsome ovals, squares, or octagons, then paint them in the selected shade of varnish. Tired feet get scrubbed and moisturized after a soak in a warm pedicure bath, and upgraded services include a dip in soothing paraffin wax.
The old slough-and-buff technique has no place at Pediworx, where licensed nail technicians trained in European methods and tools treat clients to the latest in foot- and nailcare. The spa, which doubles as both a nail salon and podiatry office, infuses modern technology with custom care to not only primp nails, but also to solve common ailments, such as ingrown nails, athlete’s foot, and Nixon-shaped calluses. Guests can relax at any of the two locations—including spots inside the Harbor Square Athletic Club and Seattle Athletic Club—as the team also treats both hands and feet to spa-like treatments topped off with shiny polish.
With a staff that includes aestheticians, hairstylists, a nail technician, and a massage therapist, Frankie D's Salon and Spa is a one-stop shop for beauty and relaxation. Here, the team pampers clients from head-to-toe with a cadre of services that includes massages, waxing, updos, manicures, and anti-aging facials. Services are made all the more soothing by the salon's spacious confines, which boast Victorian touches such as large framed paintings, ornate mirrors, and blow-dryers powered entirely by steam.
Within Bloom Studios' luxurious 24,000-square-foot spa, Angela Palumbo of Nails By Angela lavishes hands and feet with vibrant polish. In addition to shaping, trimming, and painting nails, Angela's luxe services include hand massages, sugar scrubs for legs and feet, and relaxing hot-towel treatments for appendages.
