The seasoned staff of beautifiers at Elite Salon and Day Spa renews leases on hair, nails, and skin through a variety of posh services. Tress-relieving treatments, such as a women's haircut ($35) that includes a scalp and shoulder massage, as well as eco-friendly styling products from brands such as Pureology, earned the studio a top-five spot on KREM's 2010 Z Best of Spokane list for hair salons. Doing their best middle-management impersonations, expert aestheticians smoothly terminate lagging body hair with professional waxings ranging from nose to full leg ($5–$55). Organic skin treatments abound in a menu of spa services that includes the radiant European facial ($65) and the exfoliating manual dermabrasion ($60). Toes and fingers beg for elite pedicures ($40) and elite manicures ($33)—entailing exfoliation, mud mask, paraffin dip, massage, and polish—and shoulders tired from expressing ambivalence can commit to a balancing therapy massage ($65).
