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.

Clients relax as they sip frothy beers and tart ciders amid the elegant white décor of The Wax Bar's lobby before following aestheticians back to a private treatment room for one of a broad repertoire of signature hair-removal services. Staff at The Wax Bar's two locations aim to make waxing or sugaring a luxurious and dignified experience, soothing clients' jangling nerves with drinks from the wet bar. Each aesthetician boasts a repertoire of discomfort-minimizing tricks to ensure sugaring and waxing services for men and women's brows, backs, and bikinis go as swiftly and painlessly as possible. After follicles have said their tearful goodbyes to unwanted hair, aestheticians apply aftercare products and advise clients on the best way to reduce irritation on freshly bare skin. Staff members also offer facials whose targeted therapies incorporate products from Dermalogica and Aveda.
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.
