Housed inside a rustic brick building in downtown Tacoma, a trio of stylists—Mia, Missy, and Amber—sling L'Oréal products as they cut, color, and alter the texture of clients' hair. Meanwhile, in private treatment rooms enveloped in warm earthy tones, massage therapist Abrah calls upon custom techniques and hot stones to break apart stress and assuage muscle pains. The salon's aesthetician, Kylee, also works in the private treatment rooms to pump up lashes with synthetic extensions and strip away surplus fuzz with waxing treatments for the face, full body, and dorsal fin.
If not for a display case brimming with products for hair and skin, one might confuse the welcoming L'Oréal salon for a friend's posh home. The ebullient space boasts comfortable living-room furniture and delicate chandeliers flanked by lilac wall hues and wood trim.
With every snip of her shears, Amber Pubols shows off the skills she learned at The Salon Professional Academy. Her haircuts and hair-coloring services at la tresse help fill out the salon's menu, which also includes facials, eyelash extensions, waxing, and massages. She enhances each of her services with high-quality haircare products from L'Oréal, Série Expert, and Texture Expert.
At Tacoma Chiropractic Health and Massage Center, Dr. Toler leads a conscientious crew of corporal healers who use their spine-straightening skills to free muscles from the ills that ail them. Muscle mavens amalgamate myriad massage techniques, including deep-tissue, relaxation, Swedish, and therapeutic, to suit clients' needs, whether they're looking to relieve stress, unknot overworked muscles, or clear away tension caused by held-back curse words. The center's soothing yellow and green walls evoke Mother Nature enveloping each patient in her nurturing arms, and after each one-hour treatment, guests may note such body-boosting benefits as bolstered blood flow and a broadened range of motion.
Laser light is a quick, relatively painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. The surrounding tissue is unaffected, and there is little to no irritation of the skin. Most areas usually require three to six treatments performed in six- to ten-week intervals to fully rid the dermis of unwelcome fur. Dr. Robert Niedblaski and the certified professionals at the physician-owned-and-operated Laser Hair & Skin Center will strip your lip of unwanted strands ($396 per package; a package is up to five treatments) or whip your bikini line ($796 per package) into two-piece shape just in time for Unusually Casual Friday at the office.
