With three locations serving Seattle, both downtown and in a new South Lake Union site, Capelli’s Gentlemen’s Barbershop provides customers with a warming blend of both the traditional and the new for Seattle-area men who need a bit of grooming done. This Fourth Avenue location, offers a comfortable spot for the professional man to relax during his busy day. For the exceptionally busy, easy online scheduling allows clients to pick morning, afternoon and even appointments that don’t conflict with either work or social obligations. Services range from traditional haircuts to head shaves, from signature shaves to mustache and goatee trims, all from within a wood-lined, cozy feel that’s more akin to a den than its downtown space. Dim lighting and high-end touches round out the experience, and enamored customers looking to repeat the experience can sign up for executive memberships to earn future discounts.
Butting up against historical neighborhoods including Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill, downtown Seattle boasts gorgeous views of the Puget Sound and outlying island, with locavore-friendly dining and thriving cultural institutions. The Seattle Public Library across the street from the hotel hosts free lectures from popular authors and offers a striking, unique view of the Elliot Bay from its 10th floor. Guests can take a tour, soak in the stunning, asymmetrical architecture of the building, or gaze meditatively at the surrounding public-art installations. The city's distinctive seaport setting is exemplified in seafood-specializing marketplaces, a plethora of pescatarian dining options, and the Seattle Aquarium. With an environmentalist mission in tow, the aquarium educates visitors on green practices, including the facility's own solar-assisted water heater. The underwater dome sports 360-degree views of salmon, cod, sharks, and rockfish moseying curiously around the subaqueous air bubble.
Inside the opulent Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Penelope The Beauty Bar?s team of multitalented technicians commandeers a full-body menu of traditional and med-spa treatments. From microcurrent technology to marine extracts, the staff wields effective regimens to smooth silhouettes plagued by blemishes, cellulite, or stuck-on ball gowns. Alongside each treatment's regular rates stands discounted member pricing, which avails itself to customers with the purchase of annual memberships that also include access to special promotions throughout the year. Penelope & The Beauty Bar was also nominated as best day spa in 2014's Best of Western Washington poll.
The phrase "rock-star nails" might call to mind fingernails painted a gothic black, or ones made jagged by too much guitar-strumming. At A-Luxe Beauty Salon, however, rock-star nails are polished and glamorous—nail artist Liz Vargas crafts the shimmery designs that she lays atop enamel. With glitter-speckled base colors that fade from dark to light, the nails upgrade any manicure to a fashion statement.
The salon itself is colored just as boldly. Lime green, vibrant red, and blue tiled walls border the space where a team of beauty experts administers hair, skin, and nail services. Each treatment is meticulously customized, whether it's a haircut and blowout or a facial based on face-mapping, a method of skin analysis that's more reliable than conducting a phone survey on each pore. The staff are also particular about which products they use, stocking up on non-toxic nail polish, natural shea-butter foot cream, and the Dermalogica line of skincare formulas.
Few things are more important to a well-groomed woman than her nails, and Seattle’s Julep nail parlor location is particularly adept at serving those needs. Located in downtown, adjacent to the Red Lion Hotel, Seattle’s Julep – with more locations in University Village, Bellevue and Gig Harbor – offers more than just attention to nails. Waxing and facial treatment round out the shop’s top qualities, while the most popular option remains the Julep Manicure, which combines a paraffin wrap and sea salt exfoliation with an extended massage session. Many of the treatments and manicure sessions are designed to last weeks, making sure customers can keep their fresh looks until it’s time to return for another session at the trendy, modern salon space, outfitted with comfortable treatment chairs and moody lighting.
