At Superior Nails, nail technicians pamper guests with services that make for beautiful hands and feet. During pedicure treatments, guests settle into cushy high-backed chairs while they dunk their feet into soothing soaks and techs slough off dead skin to reveal feet that are smooth as a baby seal first emerging from its egg.
The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Islands Tanning MedSpa also offers memberships.
With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, high-pressure tanning beds, or jars full of fireflies that can be held against the skin for a natural glow. The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
At Ajara Aesthetics, experienced aesthetician Nicole Dettra treats complexions to 90-minute seasonal facials administered in a spa snugly situated on the grounds of the Willamette Wellness Center. Emanating the fresh, seasonal aromas of cinnamon, peppermint, and pine, the facial focuses on rehydrating the face, safeguarding skin from the severity of cold weather and scratchy face sweaters. Before or after treatment, clients are invited to seek further serenity by taking a stroll on one of the wellness center's scenic walking trails, reflect on life by the frog pond, or admire the transient beauty of squirrel holiday-light displays.
Sport Clips specializes in creating a just-for-the-dudes atmosphere that’s tailor made to tickle the Y chromosome. "Men's women" stylists futz with the follicles of men and boys in a sport-themed environment decorated in a bold black, white, and red color scheme—evoking racing flags, professional sports teams, and jokes about newspapers. Your MVP haircut begins with a consultation about the look you want, followed by the precision haircut itself. Your guy-savvy stylist will then dole out a delightful scalp massage with Tea Tree shampoo. After a dollop of leave-in conditioner, you'll get to savor the warmth of a barbershop-style steamed towel and feel sports-related frustration melt away during an upper neck and shoulder massage. In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.
