In a white-trimmed house steps from Alki Beach, aesthetician Trudy Muller works to leave clients' skin feeling as fresh as a sea breeze. Beneath the facial room's shimmering chandelier, she pampers visages with Dermalogica products and organic mud from the Austrian moor, taking care to customize experiences to specific needs and comfort levels. A sunlit waxing room with a soft, white bed hosts treatments for bikini lines and eyebrows, as well as glittery vajazzling. Trudy often doles out helpful beauty tips during sessions and lets her love for educating clients spill over onto a blog full of waxing pointers and humorous musings about her work.
Trudy’s passion for beautification doesn’t stop at clients. She also believes in beautifying the planet, a value she evidences by using eco-friendly skincare products. Additionally, Trudy welcomes patrons to bring in empty product bottles for recycling, an incentive backed up by an offer of receiving 5% off their next purchase.
Casey Ann Rasmussen first dipped her toes into the salon and spa waters in 1996. Since then, she's done it all: managed small main-street salons, started up and worked at large-scale spas, and given all of the presidents on Mount Rushmore facials. Today, she works in her own studio, a luxury that allows her to devote 100% of her attention to her clients and set her own curated service menu. In addition to her five signature facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, Casey offers sunless spray tanning with St. Tropez equipment.
The licensed beauty specialists at Cherry Blossom know how important it is to not only look beautiful but feel beautiful as well. That’s why they use products from glo therapeutics and HydraFacial during skin services that include body waxing, European facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. The HydraFacial helps replenish the face and protect it from environmental damage or the excessive pinching of renegade grandmas with a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, chemical peeling, and antioxidants. During the skin-resurfacing facial, the staff applies alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids to brighten skin and remove dead skin cells, fine lines, and wrinkles.
When aestheticians Vanessa Hurlburt and Shelby Meyers teamed up to found a beauty boutique for women, they wisely turned to Audrey Hepburn for inspiration. Hepburn’s famed saying—“happy girls are the prettiest girls”—became their guiding principle as they filled their spa menu with airbrush tans, eyelash extensions, and facial treatments.
Thanks to the owners' warm personalities or the airbrush’s equally warm mist, clients often have a difficult time holding back smiles during UV-free tans that burnish skin with a bronze glow. The same proves true for facials, which incorporate medical-grade Image Skincare products to diminish the appearance of pores, fine lines, and lion scratches that the aestheticians will call fine lines without asking too many questions. When Vanessa wants some inspiration for her signature eyelash extensions, she needs only to look at the boutique’s damask walls, where elegant tendrils flow in a repeated pattern from floor to ceiling. The pair’s sugaring treatments achieve a more streamlined aesthetic, removing unwanted hair at the root with an all-natural blend of sugar, water, and lemon. For a shirt or dress to go with your freshly smoothed skin, look no further than the spa’s boutique, which houses apparel from brands such as daftbird, Only Hearts, and Woodleigh.
Within a black-and-white 1,500-square-foot facility embellished with tropical accents, Kucumber Skin Lounge's physician-supervised medical aestheticians enhance earthly edifices with hair removal sessions performed with lasers or customized wax, Botox injections, and cutting-edge skin treatments such as hydrafacials, photofacials, and chemical peels. Tattoo removal services rid bodies of the names of ex-lovers or outdated maps leading to safe-deposit boxes hidden during the Y2K scare. Other body beautifiers include tanning and specialized cosmetic treatments.
