The talented staff at Studio 229 offers a bevy of high-end beauty treatments in its upscale salon and spa. Waxing services impose invisibility on unwanted hair, pulling up hair follicles at the roots to hinder regrowth on areas including the full face ($45+), arm ($30+), full back ($55+), or bikini line ($40+). Trained in the ancient art of follicle taming, each stylist is capable of fusing personal experience with client requests to create a color of utmost satisfaction. The signature facial custom-blends natural botanicals to remove dirt, oil, and the autographs of last week’s famous acquaintances while gently exfoliating facial skin. As an upper neck, chest, and facial massage relaxes muscles, a customized lineup of nurturing products revitalizes complexions and reduces eye puffiness from sleepless nights practicing for staring-contest championships. Alternatively, microdermabrasion facials employ a diamond-tipped tool to scrub away skin spotted and dried by the sun’s aggressive ray-fingers, revealing more youthful and radiant skin and encouraging cells to turn over as quickly as a well-trained beagle.
A visit to the sophistically styled salon, with its rich wood floors, miniature pillars, and serenity-inspiring staff, offers a much-needed respite from the beauty-draining commotion and wild boars of the city streets.
Overlooking the Capitol Hill district, Studio 229 resides on an upper floor of the historic Lota building. Therein, a highly creative and attitude-free environment allows the team of aestheticians and stylists to focus on clients’ personal beauty needs. Each staff member has a specialty: Katrina, for example, has a deep understanding of anti-aging treatments, Julia knows how to tame difficult hair types, and DeAnna is an expert colorist and can talk to plants. Alongside a signature spread of on-trend styling services, the staff also offers a menu of hair extensions, waxing services, and body treatments.
