Salon Mairéad and Day Spa's skin treatments, haircuts, and massages earned it a nomination for Best Day Spa in Western Washington in 2011. High quality skincare products form the basis for many of the spa's luxurious treatments, including creams and anti-aging serums from Dr. Spiller Biocosmetics as well as eco-friendly body butters from Bend, Oregon-based Dani Natural Products. The spa also boasts an on-location boutique that invites departing guests to bring bits of bliss home with them in the form of spa products, handcrafted jewelry, accessories, and books-on-tape narrated by literate morning doves.
Whether it’s your hair or skin that needs rejuvenation, you can rest assured that the staff at Asami Day Spa & Salon will have you covered—sometimes literally. The spa’s skincare treatments include five types of facials designed to exfoliate and regenerate various types of skin. For issues that go deeper than the skin, there are six massage styles to choose from, including a signature spa modality enhanced by the calming scents of botanicals. True to the latter half of its name, Asami also houses a salon in which stylists skillfully remove knots, tangles, and the eggs of nesting birds.
Many of the treatments at Sea Spa Steilacoom are enhanced by sweeping ocean views?and many of the products used at this boutique spa include ingredients harvested from Poseidon's garden. For example, nail techs use Phytomer's line of marine-based scrubs and masks to soften hands and feet, and salt crystals and algae oils exfoliate bodies from head to toe during sea scrub treatments. Seaweed promotes detoxification during facials better than a slap from an octopus tentacle, and botanical extracts enrich the massage oils used during bodywork sessions.
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.
