Candles, plants, and flowing curtains channel a warm, relaxing vibe in Samatva Yoga's custom-built studios, where students of all skill levels practice ancient poses with a modern twist. To expose pupils to a range of yogic styles, more than a dozen seasoned instructors build an interdisciplinary class lineup that fosters experimentation and self-growth. The studio's signature classes stem from classical traditions such as Hatha and Ashtanga, whose poses and breathing exercises cultivate strength, flexibility, and focus. Many sessions take place in muscle-loosening 105-degree temperatures, which help pores eject body-bound impurities and books on tape lodged in the subconscious. In addition to teaching backbends and arm stands to groups, staffers guide individuals through assisted poses during Thai massages and dissolve energy blockages with reiki treatments. At the downtown Kingston location, a sauna invites students to unwind and detoxify after they stretch and balance in classes and workshops.
When beautifying the heads and bodies of his clientele, Yetmir Keqa of Salon Yetmir draws from eastern European roots, an apprenticeship at James Brett Coiffure, and a natural stockpile of dry wit and sincerity that helps to ease minds. During hair services for men, women, and youth, Mr. Keqa caters to his subjects' personalities and penchants for auditioning for shampoo commercials, using products by Davines and colour infused with milk protein. Facials and massages soothe away stress and brighten countenances, and mani-pedis leave extremities ready for first-impression handshakes. While clients admire glossy black treatment chairs and full-length, thick-bordered mirrors, they sip a complimentary macchiato that lightens the mood and keeps hair awake long enough to say goodbye to its split ends.
BlackStar Body Piercing ornaments barren areas of dermis with a wide selection of presterilized jewellery pieces. Peruse the menu of safe, sanitary services offered by the shop's experienced lobe pokers before sitting down to acquaint untouched skin with a double-jewelled bent barbell during a navel piercing ($55) or to appease olfactory senses with a sparkly nostril screw ($65). Each client's skin is numbed by an in-house polar bear before all piercing procedures.
Within the calming green walls at Soothing Oasis Spa, certified aestheticians maintain a tranquil oasis in the midst of a hectic world, helping clients reduce stress and refresh bods with head-to-toe pampering services. They nix unwanted patches of hair with the help of warm wax, festoon nails in brilliant hues during mani-pedis, and help faces regain long-ago looks via anti-aging facials.
The Ultimate Hair Salon's team of skilled stylists and colourists gussy up women's and men's hair with products from Wella's Koleston Perfect, Color Touch, and Sebastian.

The Mane Obsession is a Redken Platinum Salon in which master stylists sculpts tresses into modest follicular masterpieces. Hair services, such as a spring-cleaning cut ($25–$48 for women, $15–$32 for men), mow skullscapes into aesthetically pleasing frontier, and a bang trim frees eyes from the tyrannical rule of egotistical strands ($6). Colourists switch natural hues from doldrums to vibrancy with the application of highlights ($55–$78), and protect entire heads from freezer burn with a full-foil ($70–$93). An intense conditioning service can rid hair from permanent winter windsweptedness more effectively than applying nymph breath or never riding in a convertible ($11 add-on).

The Beach Tanning Salon and Mr.Suntan bronze colour-craven figures in varying copper shades with an array of beds and sunless sprays. With two turns in front of the Mystic Tan spray unit, customers gain a UV-free glow that, like a freshly waxed tuxedo, glides on the skin in seconds through an airbrush technique that shoots a simultaneous mist. Patrons may instead opt to sun their bods with a two-month tanning membership, which bathes epidermises with professional rays that range in levels of intensity. The sun spa's expert staff encourage the stand-up tanning unit and advanced European beds for experienced bronzers, while the Uvalux Ruva beds are reserved for pallid patrons who recently survived an Elvis sighting. Duration times vary based on the bed selected.

Altered Ego prunes the tussled tresses of its customers, transforming dishevelled mop tops into hairy extensions of individual vim and charisma. Each visitor can ease into a comfy seat and recline a scraggly scalp while a skilled stylist strokes strands with a rejuvenating Redken shampoo. After adolescent angst has been washed out, snippists will cut away split ends and craft an alluring 'do that fetchingly frames faces and draws more attention than a trash can fire at a fireman’s convention. Once follicles have been jettisoned onto the floor, Altered Ego's coif connoisseurs can spiral shiny manes into a posh style that is sure to captivate coworkers and envious ice cream cones alike.
Luce Hair Studio spruces human exteriors using the expertise of highly trained staff members and high-quality, innovative products. The salon's digit decorators pare and polish patrons' hand and foot talons, halting the encroachment of advancing cuticles and buffing out scratches, dings, and the consequences of squeezing an octopus. Nailcare experts then apply polish designed to last without chipping or smudging. Hands and leg-hands undergo these ministrations within Luce Hair Studio's stylish downtown and East End interiors, distinguished by warm tones, windows, and the complete absence of doors.
The talented team of beauty mavens at F.A.B. aims to spruce up cranial coverings with styling and colour meant to complement and emphasize each client's attributes. With partial foil highlights, trained stylists can strategically add a touch of colour to heads in shine-deficient places, such as the roots, tips, and faded uvulae, or add all-over hues with a full colouring. Patrons in need of a trim can instead opt for treatment from a senior stylist who shampoos, shears, and shapes tresses with premium products from AG and Schwarzkopf and an eye toward creating a distinctive coif that flatters each individual's face shape, hair texture, and forehead tattoos.
Helmed by owner and stylist Paulette Guelph, Trendsetter Hair Clinic morphs languid strands into radiant tresses with beautifying salon services. Patrons eager to augment existing head plumage can festoon locks with a pair of feather extensions available in vivid colours such as pink, green, and blue, along with more reserved hues such as black and invisible. A dexterous coiffeur affixes the ornithological additions in a matter of seconds, giving locks a quick and eye-catching upgrade. Alternatively, stylists can lavish mops with rejuvenating treatments such as a wash and style ($35) that cleanses begrimed manes before caressing strands into polished shape and thanking them for their cooperation. A conditioning treatment and scalp-massage therapy ($65) nourish follicles and relax craniums exhausted from constantly preventing brains from floating away in thought bubbles. Hair extensions ($100–$300+ for hairpiece and installation) hailing from brands including Revlon, Sensual, and New Image impart locks with extra length and added material for ponytail crafting.
Trends come and go, which is why the stylists at Fossa Hair Studio keep abreast of their constantly changing industry with Schwarzkopf's continuous education classes. Guided by their ceaseless schooling, the team masterfully uses both Schwarzkopf's original product line, as well as its Osis line, to expertly style hair into simple everyday looks or fun and innovative colour designs. Frizzy-haired clients will take a special liking to the crew's stock of Moroccanoil; the anti-humectant locks in moisture and shine all while blocking frizz and stale styles better than living in a human-sized hamster bubble. Once highlights and colour treatments are set and split-ends sheared, the crew enhances facial features with full makeup applications.
Fossa's space is almost as elegant and chic as its stylist's work. Simple taupe walls flank three sides of the salon, while rustic bricks create the fourth portion. Crystal-like chandeliers sparkle over the space's black styling chairs, which face black-framed mirrors. Adjacent to that area, customers can lean back in plush leather reclining chairs in the salon's esthetics space. Customers relax amid limestone walls and infloor heating for a variety of services such as nail and waxing services, eyelash extensions, facials, and makeup applications.
Celia Piper, master stylist and proprietor of Flair Home Hair Studio, employs her extensive experience working with senior stylists and colour technicians and her continuing education in advanced cutting and colouring techniques in order to help her clients find their most becoming hairstyles. She operates from the comfort of her own home, eschewing what she refers to as the "assembly-line" feel of downtown salons, and her keen eyes and hands perform precision cuts, stylings, and colour services with Moroccanoil and Schwarzkopf products. A complimentary consultation precedes all visitations, during which time clients can disclose their desired hairstyle and the exact number of marshmallows they can stuff into their mouth.
