Over-rated, over-priced, rude service! 11/24/2010

I visit spas regularly and was greatly disappointed by Spa Blix, and in fact have never been treated so badly by any service person in my life before my experience there! I had scheduled a manicure/pedicure with a girlfriend of mine so we could get them together. When I showed up, my friend was late and called my cell phone, which was on silent, but I had it out so I saw her call. She told me that she had been trying to reach the Spa on their phone line, but no one was picking up for over an hour. She was lost and forgot her wallet at home, so she was going to be late. It was just then that the store manager came out and yelled in my face that "no cell phones were allowed in her store" and then walked away. I had no idea, and was in the waiting area, but also my phone never made any sound, and I didn't say anything but "okay, and let me ask someone here". How rude! Then, to top it off, the store manager and her employees began to ghossip about my being on the phone "in a spa" behind the room divider where I could perfectly hear them. Why didn't they answer their phone when my friend was trying to call instead of ghossiping about me? I was so put off that I was thinking about leaving, when a different woman came out to take me back to get my pedicure. I figured I'd give her the benefit of the doubt and just hope my friend could get there eventually. The pedicure was terrible, I am tall and my legs didn't fit in the permanent, screwed into the floor foot tub. I had to contort in an odd sideways sitting position to get my feet in. The water the woman used was too hot and burned my feet, the quality of the overall services was bad, and I had to do all this without being able to be next to my friend. When my friend showed up about 20 minutes into my service, after my pedicure was done, they started her and we were separated the whole time. It was terrible. I ended up waiting 40 minutes for my friend to get done with her mani/pedi. To top it off, I was charged an outrageous amount for the services that I got. I will never be going there again and have told everyone I know how rude the manager and employees were, how mis-managed the place was, and how bad the services are for the price. It seemed like the hair stylist guy did well and his customers seemed happy, that was about the only plus I saw to that place. It was a WANNABE spa - an over-decorated, amateur, attempt at a spa. I'd say go anywhere else but here! more

Misleadeing Advertising and Poor Manicure 9/20/2010

I went to Spa Blix with a Groupon that I had purchased for a Mani/Pedi. While the location is great, not in the middle of downtown, and the décor welcoming, that is where my compliments end. 2 of my friends and I had booked Mani/Pedi's for the same time. We were all brought back to the Spa waiting area to fill out paperwork. Then, my friends were brought back for their Pedicure's while I sat waiting for about 10 minutes until a staff member came to get me to do my Manicure. I wouldn't have minded that I wasn't able to get a Pedicure with my friends 1. Had they told us when we made our appointments that they can only service 2 Mani/Pedis at a time and 2. If someone had told me sooner than 10 minutes into my wait that I wasn't going to be doing a spa day with my friends. My Manicure service was fine, and the nail technician friendly, but the results were poor. The base coat was applied, and then the color immediately after. The technician must have shaken the bottle, because I have bubbles all over my nails. Additionally, it was applied so thick, that I woke up the next morning with creases in my polish because each of the layers were not given a chance to dry prior to the next layer being applied. The day after my service, I removed my Manicure, as my nails looked terrible with the polish. Finally, the Groupon was purchased as a $70 service for $29 that was supposed to include a mask on our hands and feet as part of the treatment. There was no mask applied. And when checking out and asking about how much the service was (not recalling what was in the deal) so I could tip appropriately, I was told that it was a $40 service. Meanwhile, my friend who received the exact same service, but did so out of pocket and not with a Groupon, was told that her services was $29. I cannot figure out why our services that were exactly the same, were different prices and how I paid for $70 worth of services but only received $40. While you may wonder why I didn't speak up sooner, the spa is darker and I was not able to see my nails until after I had left. And in regards to my Groupon, I wanted to double check the services quoted in the Groupon. While I am extremely disappointed that the Groupon I purchased was misleading, and some may argue false advertising, my overall experience has made it so I will not be returning to Spa Blix. I have received far cheaper Manicures with superior results. The hour was relaxing, but I will be relaxing in another nail salon from now on. more

Best Spa Ever 5/25/2010

Absolutely wonderful!! Atmosphere and decor are out of this world, and the services will make you feel like youre floating on a cloud. Wonderful customer service and yummy tea. The facial i got left my skin glowing and the massage revived my tired muscles, all at a steal with the summer specials they are running. If you are need of some spa time Spa Blix is the place to go. Plus they use natural, eco-friendly products. Pros: EVERYTHING Cons: NONE more

Healing touch 5/6/2010

If you want holistic beauty at its best, this is the place to go. Their esthetician, Victoria Raisky has recently moved here from New York, where she dedicated the last 10 years to her art of holistic facials and healing. Her touch is to die for and she doesn't just treat your skin, she treats your whole being, bringing out the glow from the inside. more

coleen is my go-to girl for brows 12/8/2009

i just had the best brow shaping ever with coleen! I,ve been everywhere from those 15 dollar nail places to spa's at major resorts and i've never been happier with the shape and overall attention to detail than with her. She was so swift we fit in a quick bikini line clean up with sugar, her suggestion when i mentioned i was cultivating a winter coat 'down there'. Going back for all my body care needs. See her, your self esteem will thank you. more

Coleen is FANTASTIC! 12/2/2009

I have always been a little apprehensive about getting a facial - I had no idea what it entailed and was afraid that it could be incredibly painful. Thankfully, Coleen came to my rescue! When I first arrived, Coleen escorted me into the super quaint waiting room where a warm cup of mint tea was waiting for me. She explained the entire process and answered all my questions - all of which made me feel relaxed and comfortable. During this time I used the restroom and fell in love all over again. I appreciate how much effort was put into the entire atmosphere at Spa Blix. The bathroom had all the essentials - even an incredible shower that blew my mind! After I was done filling out all the required paperwork, Coleen escorted me to into an incredibly tranquil room. I appreciate the fact that the first question Coleen asked was "What are your goals for today's session?" I LOVE solution/goal oriented individuals. Once Coleen knew what I wanted to work on, she provided me with tips and useful information during the entire session about my skin. Each time she would begin a new treatment, she would tell me what it was, relay some of the supporting ingredients, and make me aware of any warming or coarse feelings/textures. After my session had ended, she had another cup of tea for me out in the waiting area - so awesome! Thank you Coleen for an incredible first facial! I will be coming back each month (as a gift to myself) to obtain a facial from Coleen! Two thumbs up & a double high five! Pros: professional, incredibly knowledgeable, amazingly friendly! Cons: N/A more

Tim as AMAZING 11/6/2009

I hopped from stylist to stylist for years, always unhappy with my haircut. My best friend insisted that I try her stylist, Tim. I was hooked with the first cut! I won't let anyone else touch my hair now. Tim is honest, entertaining, and a hair genius. I had a cut yesterday and I'm already looking forward to my next appointment, just to see Tim again! Pros: Best cut Cons: NONE more

He is so particular while cutting and coloring and really takes the time to make the overall look just right. Also, he is friendly and has trained me on the best techniques to style my hair as well as give me new ideas. Pros: Kirk more

My hair is gorgeous because of Tim... 8/15/2009

Thanks to Tim, my hair looks amazing, and everyone notices! I look forward to my visits with Tim--the best color and highlighting, the best cut, and the best style I've ever had in my life. I wish everyone could be lucky enough to see Tim. more

Tim is my hair savior 8/3/2009

I'm very picky about my hair and how it's cut and colored. I was apprehensive about using Tim as all my stylists in the past were women but OMG... Tim far exceeded my expectations. My color is richer looking than I could ever have imagined and he knew exactly how to cut my hair to frame my face, using my natural wave. Tim is amazing and I am never going anywhere else. It took me 6 months to write this review because I wanted to see if he is consistent and he is, each and every time. Tim is so sweet, friendly and cares about his clients. You have got to try Tim. I guarantee you'll be back. Pros: professional, friendly, great service, comfortable, clean Cons: none more

Looking for the best colorist in town? Ask for Michelle 5/29/2009

I have to say that I have tried a number of salons in the downtown Seattle area and Michelle at Spa Blix is by far the most talented colorist around! Every time I go to her, I am so pleased! She is FABULOUS! Definitely the best colorist in Seattle. Pros: wonderful experience, a true artist! more

Mia is fantastic! 4/25/2009

I've never been to a spa, much less had a Brazilian, so I was a bit apprehensive. But Mia was terrific! She explained exactly what she was going to do and what I could expect, and she was very reassuring. I think her experience definitely minimized the discomfort. The results were so great I'll definitely go see Mia again. Thank you Mia! Pros: knowledgable, great service, nice setting, validated parking more

Try it, you will love it 4/7/2009

This place may look small, but it is big on services and expertise. I had the extreme pleasure to have Traci cut and color my hair. I have never had a better hair cut or color that enhanced my face and my personality. She is an expert at her craft and I highly recommend anyone looking for that "one" stylist and colorist to try Traci. You won't be dissapointed. more

Spa Blix: Finest Skincare in Seattle 4/1/2009

I finally found the right place in Seattle to analyze and repair my skin. I was in need of a skin "overhaul", and the professionals at Spa Blix provided the remedy. Mia Drysdale, an esthetician at Spa Blix, diagnosed my issues and put me on the path to healthy skin. Mia's understanding of the science and chemistry of skin and skin care is what sets her apart from other estheticians. She asked questions about my daily treatment, product use, diet, and hydration. Then, she explained the science of the things that were harming me and the new habits that would help. Spa Blix has an extensive menu of facial options, and my trust in Mia is so strong that I always let her choose each treatment. In addition to great care, Mia and other Spa Blix staff possess a charm and warmth that create a tranquil atmosphere, the kind of experience you expect from a premier spa. Within two weeks, my skin improved dramatically and was no longer on the "good day" "bad day" cycle. Now, 3 months removed from my first treatment, none of the issues that plagued me reappear. I recommend Mia and Spa Blix without reservation. Pros: Relaxed, Calm atmosphere;Friendly and attentive staff more

victoria r 3/4/2009

I recently had the pleasure of getting a facial with Victoria. I have very sensitive dry skin and normally I leave a facial looking much worse. This time my skin was hydrated and glowing. I walked around the rest of the day with no makeup and felt great. She has a fabulous touch, gives the best scalp massage and really did some amazing energy work as well. All in all it was a truley great experience and I would recomend her to everyone. more
