This Belltown salon, brightened by its mix of mirrors and light and its broad wall of windows facing 2nd Avenue, strives to provide contemporary hair and waxing services using natural and organic products, such as its Arigato and CLEAN Enhanced Organics lines. Facial and brow waxing are available, as is lash and brow tinting. Euphorico also offers straightening and de-frizzing treatments via a kind and gentle Amino Fusion technique (keratin- and formaldehyde-free), as well as relaxer treatments and deep conditioning processes. The salon offers cuts and styling for day or evening, and a full array of coloring options and color compliment techniques, including shines and glosses.
Within Blend Herbal Spa, an aesthetician attends to guests with a menagerie of services. Patrons cruise past potted herbs, ready to conceal or remove unwanted hair with waxing, threading, and tinting treatments. Cobalt-blue bottles conceal products from NYR Organic, which flaunt cleansing and age-concealing abilities and rely on the natural powers of plants unlike an overbearing scarecrow.
At the helm of Seattle Medical Aesthetics are Drs. Susan Petcoff and Lynne Haspedis, who have both been practicing medicine in Seattle since 1988. Both board-certified physicians also come from backgrounds in obstetrics and gynecology, making them particularly qualified to address the concerns of women who flock to the center for anti-aging treatments. Skin-smoothing injections of Botox and Juvéderm are a center specialty, as are prescription-grade chemical peels and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that do everything from correcting uneven pigmentation and restricting hair growth to helping skin reminisce about its disco-dancing days. Licensed aesthetician Darla Green is also on hand to recommend products by SkinCeuticals, ViDerm, and Glytone, and to share tips she learned while working as a makeup artist for film and TV.
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.
Though their moniker implies a limited focus on only two treatments, the staff at The Lash & Wax Boutique has padded their aesthetic portfolio with far more services than just eyelash extensions and body waxing. Their classic and clarifying facials keep complexions smooth, and six assorted peels help fight signs of aging in delicious flavors such as blueberry and pomegranate. Spray tans, permanent-makeup applications, and long-lasting mink and synthetic lashes give the facility a spa-like feel. However, the real staff specialty is hair removal that reaches way beyond wax?the staff also banishes unwanted strands via threading and body sugaring, which is not only a gentler depilatory than wax, but receives a far warmer reception when accidentally dropped into a pot of coffee.
Stylus, a sleek two-story Belltown salon, with skylights and dark wooden touches, creates a soothing environment offset by fresh art curated periodically by a local gallery. Within this sleek and spare atmosphere, customers come for classic cuts, full or partial coloring treatments, as well as numerous types of relaxer, keratin treatments, blowouts and updos. Facial and other hair removal services cleanup a look. For a spa day treatment, hedonists can enjoy mineralizing body polishes, detoxifying body wraps or a facial with or without glycolic treatment. Those hoping to make the glamour permanent can accent their look with the enchanting addition of lash extensions.
