What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Our La Lumi?re colour service was created by our founder after a trip to Paris in the spring. The Platine Salon uses this hair colour technique for strategic highlights and lowlights placement to showcase the shine and dimension that would be created by the sun reflecting in the hair. The result is gradual lightness and depth, while creating a rich colour palette in between.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Our founder has had a passion for all things beauty since she was a little girl. She loves doing hair as an integral part of the whole package of a woman's beauty regime. She believes that it is a woman's right to feel good about themselves. Her goal is for every woman to leave with a smile that stretches ear to ear, and she coaches her staff to use their passion in the same way.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
Our favourite service to perform is our unique La Lumi?re hair colour service. We feel that this the best way to change the hair colour palette and take away the grays, creating dimension with highlights and lowlights all while having a glossy finish in the end. It has taken lots of research to create this service, and we do it more than any other because it can remedy so many needs in one shot.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are the exclusive salon distributor for Living Proof (Jennifer Aniston's haircare line) in Seattle. We take pride in the fact that this amazing line deemed us worthy, and we have all had extensive training to help anyone change their hair for the better. We really care about our clients as individuals, and we are always finding new ways to give the best customer service out there. We are forming life-long relationships, and their happiness is our happiness.
The Love Lab founder and renowned massage-industry expert Meagan Holub has helped some pretty discriminating clientele to relax and unwind. From Forbes CEOs and professional athletes to rock stars and royalty, her therapeutic massages have melted away the stress that is inherent in any A lister's life. According to Holub's blog, gift certificates for one of her massages were given away in VIP gift bags at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney, so they made their way into the hands of celebrity musicians, such as the Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, and Coldplay.
But Holub talks massage with as many down-to-earth, everyday people as she does famous folks, thanks to a compassionate streak she's demonstrated since childhood. As a young girl and teenager, she rescued stray animals, volunteered at Easter Seals camp, became a physical-therapy assistant, and served as an aide for a person with paraplegia. Today her passion for helping others translates into The Love Lab's services, including group massage classes and private massage lessons that teach individuals and couples to execute the same techniques so sought after by Hollywood stars. Holub and her team of certified massage therapists also instruct employees at workplace events, where they demonstrate stress-relief techniques, which come in handy the next time the boss requires mandatory overtime to help her solve the Sunday crossword.
The savvy staff at duque salon + spa + boutique exercise precise aesthetic methods while crafting distinct styles through haircuts, makeup treatments, and salon services. Executive Stylist Giovanna Duque, who has honed her shear-wielding abilities on the manes of models and actors including Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams, utilizes tension-free dry-cutting methods which deliver precise shapes. To begin each deluge-free treatment, Giovanna straightens strands with a flatiron and proceeds to shape head shrubbery with slight vertical scissor cuts for a gentle, tapered end. During the Face Forward makeup application, duque salon + spa + boutique's rouge Rembrandts collaborate with skin tones, facial features, and individual styles to create a natural look for each beauty seeker. Alternatively, clients can opt for highlights, all-over color, deep-conditioning treatments, or updos.
The exposed-brick walls of duque salon + spa + boutique's studio contrast with contemporary black-and-chrome furnishings to provide clients with a comfortable arena in which to unwind while sipping on complimentary tea, nibbling on light eats, or chewing over new slogans to emboss on their driver's licenses.
