A lot of local salons offer a spa atmosphere — you know: soft lighting, soothing music, scents wafting — but Seasons Skin Care Studio in Wenatchee comes by it rightly.
Studio owner Debbie Mayer, formerly the lead esthetician (skin care specialist) at the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort & Spa near Palm Springs, offers all that luxury stuff plus 30 years experience in wide range of skin care processes and makeup techniques.
We’re talking about a half-dozen different kinds of facials, tints for lashes and brows and hair removal from face to feet and everything (ahem) in between. “Clients recommend me to friends for Brazilian and bikini waxes,” she said. “That takes special care, and I’ve been doing them for many years.”
She adds, “I like to bring the spa experience to everyone who comes here, to provide absolutely total relaxation and rejuvenation.” That includes accupressure massage using pressure points in the upper body and face. “You can feel youself melt,” she said.
Mayer also offers microcurrent facials, a kind of non-invasive facelift, which uses low-level electrical current and light therapy to firm skin tone and improve texture, reduce puffiness and smooth fine lines.
An on-site hair stylist also offers cutting and coloring at the studio.
Mayer, 57, born and raised in Tonasket, moved to Wenatchee two years ago when her husband had a job offer here. In January, she bought the Seasons studio from former owner Michelle Rosvold.
“It’s such a pleasure to leave the busy, hectic world of a huge resort and open a smaller, more intimate studio,” said Mayer. “I love the one-on-one relationships with clients."
In September, Mayer began carrying bareMinerals makeup, a cosmetics line offered in only upscale salons and department stores.
“The line has a crystal mineral base that provides flawless application,” she said. “Plus, it’s good for your skin.” She also offers clients lessons in proper application and color matching.
“Everything we do here makes you feel good,” said Mayer. “And even better — it makes you look good, too.”
