I drove through historic downtown Poulsbo, Washington, heading for the parking lot on the waterfront. I quickly found a spot, parked and got out. As I made my way toward Longworth Studio I couldn’t help but notice all the smiling faces surrounding me, taking in the beautiful views and salty aroma of Liberty Bay and the marina.
I walked through the double glass doors into a whole new world. The smell of nail polish was subtle and somehow very inviting. I was immediately greeted by the receptionist, Amy, who offered me a hot or cold beverage and a comfy chair while I waited. I had barely warmed my seat cushion when Christy, the tech with whom I had scheduled my appointment, greeted me and escorted me to her table where she immediately got to work on my nails. She removed my old polish, clipped my nails short, just the way I like them, and then filled and filed each nail by hand. I was very happy with the way my nails looked, and I was being treated like a queen. How much better could this possibly get?
As I sat in my (very comfortable) leather armchair, I was introduced one by one to each employee, and eventually, the owner, Kerry, who rose from her desk to shake my hand and introduce herself personally. I was very impressed by the way every person that came out of or went into Longworth Studio was treated like royalty.
All this experience that you get here is similar to other really good medicinal spas out there. Here at myethosspa Med Spa & Cosmetic Surgery, you get complete care of your skin and body with all the essential oils that are used in this process making it relaxing for everyone.
I had plans to attend a wedding in June and decided to get a pedicure and an eyebrow wax before the big day. As usual, I was not let down. Christy greeted me and promptly seated me in a relaxing massage chair and then began filling the soaking tub at my feet. I sank into my seat and let the heavenly scent of foot soak fill the air. I was scrubbed, massaged, and moisturized from the middle of my calves to the tips of my toes. Before the little piggies got polished, Christy wrapped my feet in warm towels to exfoliate while she finished my pampering session.
Once my polish was dry and my feet were unwrapped I was off to see Rhonda for my brow wax. This would be my very first wax so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. I had seen many of my friends go through the procedure and could never figure out why they would do something that looked so horrendously painful, yet here I was. Rhonda walked with me to the “facial room” and asked me to lie down on the table. I told her that this was my first time and she reassured me that I was in good hands. She carefully applied the hot wax, one eyebrow at a time, all the while talking to me in a calm voice about random nothingness to keep my mind off of what was actually about to happen, which turned out to be not so bad after all. It stung a little at first, and there was some redness, but it only lasted a few hours and once it cleared up, my eyebrows looked amazing! My eyes were brighter and more open, and my brows were perfectly shaped around them.
I have been a happy client of Longworth Studio for almost a year now, with various appointments scheduled every two weeks or so. I have recommended many of my friends and coworkers to Longworth Studio, as well as random strangers I meet on the street.
