Build Your Glam Squad in Downtown Edmonds

Downtown Edmonds is a creative hub for artists of all kinds—watercolor, culinary, mixed media, music, and more. And when we think about art, we don’t always think of it in terms of, well, glam, but our goal in this article is to change that. 

The beauty experts in Downtown Edmonds are true artists, humans committed to their craft to make you look and feel amazing. And the best part? Our blocks are bursting with them. 

So, whether you need a barber who will give you the best straight-edge shave of your life or a nail technician who paints delicate flowers on your thumb nail’s hard gel, stick around because we have recommendations for both of those services—and more. 

(Note: We have so many beauty experts Downtown Edmonds that we couldn’t include everyone. Please know this list is not entirely exhaustive, but it will give you a great starting point and new people to try on. Within each category, businesses and service providers are listed alphabetically. You deserve the best—now, go out and treat yourself to it!)

Beauty and the Barber in Downtown Edmonds

Beauty and the Barber


At The Basement Salon, you’ll be taken care of by a team that truly loves each other—and that matters! Whoever you’re working with will give you the perfect look for you, so pull up those Pinterest photos!

Beauty and the Barber, a relative newcomer to Downtown Edmonds, is the perfect place for a beauty date. They have stylists, barbers, and estheticians all under one roof in a very cool space on 4th. Take yourself for lashes and brows and get your man groomed with that straight-edge right alongside you. Win-win!

Bellissimo Beauty Bar proudly calls itself your glam squad. At their full-service salon, expect to feel completely taken care of, empowered, and beautiful. 

If you think you’ve seen Chroma in Seattle, you’re right. Their Edmonds location is their fourth location in the area, meaning the professional experience you’ve come to expect in the Emerald City is also planted firmly in your backyard. Why pay for parking in Seattle to get your hair done when you can stay right at home in Edmonds? And, pssst, for all you Aveda fans—they’re an Aveda salon. 

Love a good scissor cut? Head to ​​Faye’s Shear Delight where longtime owner Faye will get you, your partner, and your kids looking their best. Wavy or curly hair? No problem—unruly hair is Faye’s specialty! 

At MODA Hair Cafe + Spa, enhance your look with one of their professional hair stylists or master estheticians. Launched by a MOther-DAughter team in 1996 (MODA, get it?), this salon and spa has been in the business of your beautification for nearly thirty years.

Ombu Salon + Spa is all about a beautiful, organic you. They do hair, too, and they make sure all of it is not only good for you but also good for the environment. Plus, their retail section has great gifts! 

Slate Salon + Spa does it all, including those fancy hard gel manis we mentioned in the intro, but we wanted to put them in the skin section because they also have tons of products for you to protect your body’s biggest organ. Book a facial, or a blowout, and have them wrap up your new favorite toner on your way out.

If you haven’t gotten your ticket to board the sugar train, now’s the time. Book an appointment at Sugarology on 4th to experience organic, hygienic hair removal with experts you can trust.

From Main Street Nail’s cute red shop, watch people walk by with their pups or on their way to the ferry. In addition to great nail services, they offer lash extensions and waxing, too.
