About Eri Higuchi — Esthetician

Eri Higuchi, lead esthetician at SalonDEWI since 2004, is a familiar and friendly face at the spa. She is known as quick and efficient when it comes to waxing, but always aspires to help her clients look and feel beautiful.

Her specialty? The Brazilian. Eri has mastered the Brazilian since she joined SalonDEWI and learned the secrets from The Waxing Diva himself! But she provides a range of services—in fact men, who represent more than half her clientele, especially appreciate her expert work on their backs and chests. Eri also enjoys ingrown hair extraction because she finds the progress she can make over just a few visits very rewarding. Realizing that some of these services are not exactly relaxing, Eri points to the saying, “No pain, no gain,” and gets to work to help her clients achieve the look they desire. Of course, Eri also does facials for that calming spa experience you’ve been dreaming about.

She has built her clientele solely through referrals, which is a great testament to the service she provides. Eri loves her regulars—even after they move away! She has many out-of-state and even international clients who book their appointments with her when they’re back in town. Clients are always impressed with her easy laugh and polished technique.

Over the years, Eri has received extensive training in advanced spa services and techniques under Travis, and she’s now embarking on hands-on business management training, thanks to Travis’ focus on professional development.

Eri is originally from Japan, where she worked in the beauty industry. Ten years ago she made Seattle her home. Well, in fact she has made Lynnwood her home, but is happy to be working in Seattle. And we’re lucky to have her!
