The bodily benefactors at Three Cedars Day Spa protect guests from the harsh outside world with a coterie of calming services for the skin, face, and body. Licensed aestheticians denude unwanted hair with beams of pulsed light or oversee daylong pampering packages that include European facials and a choice of seaweed or mud wraps. Massage practitioners offer a choice of five styles, including their signature massage, which includes steamed and scented towels, deep-tissue strokes, and wafting smells of citrus. Guests warm themselves by a working fireplace clad in an optional robe and slippers before enjoying their choice of facial or waxing services. A kids-free zone, Three Cedars Day Spa politely asks parents to leave little ones at home, lest they disrupt the serenity or get into arguments with the Teddy Ruxpin checking IDs at the door.
Though the service menu at Foxy Nails may be simple (just manicures and pedicures), the end results are anything but. Once staffers arm themselves with OPI polish, files, and clippers, they buckle down and get to work transforming your fingernails and toenails into miniature works of art. Whether you want a design that highlights cherry blossoms, tiny hearts, or even the Seattle Seahawks, Foxy Nails’s technicians are game to try it. At times, it seems like their only limit is the customer’s imagination.
But it’s more than just the nail art that keeps regulars coming back. It’s also the friendly service and the comfortable, modern-looking atmosphere. Overstuffed pedicure chairs cradle guests in comfort as the technicians work, and crimson walls and mod-inspired light fixtures add an extra touch of glamour to an already posh experience.
