As we enter summer—though it doesn’t quite feel or look like it this week—in the Northwest, it’s a great time to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. Megan Sevcik opened Honey Skin Spa in 2011, a boutique skin spa located in Madison Valley that focuses on creating beautiful skin for men and women of all ages and skin types. From those who have battled awful adult acne to rosacea and broken capillaries, to fine lines and large pores, she handles it all with care and passion. 

Having great hair can make any day better.

If you’re not familiar, “blowouts” are simple treatments that include a wash and style. Stylists can make your hair wavy, voluminous, or straight. Blow dry bars in Seattle haven’t caught on the way they have in Los Angeles and New York and we’re not sure why—it is a lovely experience having someone wash, dry, and style your hair. At 30% of what a haircut would cost, it leaves you feeling glamorous with event-ready hair that you didn’t have to do yourself!
