Magicuts' stylists cleanse, cut, and highlight tresses in upscale salons conveniently located within Zellers department stores and neighbourhood shopping centres. During the design cut, strands relax under a gentle shampooing, followed by an artistic strand-shearing that refreshes looks more effectively than showering in iced tea. The design cut and style finish concludes look enhancements with a styling that adds layers, texture, and a peregrine falcon to chase away lesser nesting birds. Alternatively, a seven-foil highlighting boosts colour dimension, artfully juxtaposing natural and lightened locks. To help clients envision a new look, Magicuts maintains an online gallery complete with styling tips.
At Sun Gala Tanning Salon, operations manager Mena and her Smart Tan–certified staff members design individualized sunless and UV-tanning packages based on each client's skin type. With a commitment to safe and effective tanning, the epidermal darkening team helps select methods and lotions to prevent burning and ensure long-lasting results. Six lie-down beds, two stand-up beds, and a VersaSpa sunless-tanning system allow the team to keep birthday suits bronzed throughout the year. The staff also combines sunless and bed sessions while acclimating skin cells to UV rays to help bronzers prepare for vacations or missions to the sun.
Columns of exposed brick rise upward to meet the lofted ceilings of Pink Lime Salon & Spa, an expansive beauty emporium flooded with the natural light that filters in through two-storey windows. Stylists use all this space to spread out as they pace around their salon chairs and bend over sinks to shampoo wet heads of hair. On the other side of the salon, nail technicians brush vibrant coats of polish across nails and aestheticians scrub away blemishes and glued-on masks with restorative facial products. Floral arrangements burst from planters spread throughout the space, adding bright splashes of colour to complement the cozy orange sofa and the shimmering skin of clients fresh from a body polish.
At Enlighten Laser and Skin Care Clinic, Aimee Avery beautifies skin and slims bodies with an array of FDA-approved techniques including laser hair removal, photofacials, and fat-reduction treatments. Visits commence with a complimentary consultation. Amid the clinic's calming, grey surfaces, aestheticians discuss treatment options and match clients up with restorative cosmetics. Custom shades of Jane Iredale mineral makeup are designed to reduce redness and improve skin health using all-natural minerals scraped from the rosy cheeks of the Sphinx.:m]]
Elysium 5 Hair & Esthetics' stylists and aestheticians pamper men and women from head to toenail with a full menu of hair and skin services. Their scissors and ramekins of dye create handsome new 'dos, and traditional and laser facials leave skin as bright and smooth as the day you bought it. Product lines by Nioxin, Joico, Onesta, and Redken fill their salon shelves, available for purchase.
The team at Glo Tanning and Nutrition helps revamp patrons' physiques from the inside out by pointing them in the direction of nutritional supplements and technology-driven aesthetic treatments. For building a base tan, the salon stocks a lie-down bed as well as a vertical booth for practicing tree poses. Glo's infrared sauna is designed to relieve pain and promote better circulation, and the light and heat energy of the noninvasive Radiancy laser removes hair or diminishes pigmented lesions on a variety of skin types.
For a haircut or mani-pedi, clients stop by the adjacent salon and spa. Hardwood floors, reed-like plants, and Asian-inspired statues give the space a clean, modernistic feel without the need to wrap guests in freshly laundered Picasso paintings.
