Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.
Sometimes lying in a tanning bed surrounded by warmth can be a relaxing experience. Now add a massage and a facial to that. Nestled inside Tropical Paradise Tanning Salon & Spa, All About You! enhances tanning sessions with body treatments that include aromatherapy massages and skin-clearing facials. A one-stop beauty-maintenance shop, All About You! is also filled with beauty professionals who tend to nails and wax away unwanted body hair or add drama with eyebrow tints.
Elite Hair and Skin Care owner Sue Shaker spends her days chasing a natural high. Fifteen years ago, she noticed that feeling confident about her looks positively affected her overall well-being, and so she has been trying to help clients develop confidence through hair ever since. Her journey began at California School of Beauty, where she gravitated toward hair colour because another student mixed the formulas together and created a black hole. Now she corrects unflattering dye jobs with aplomb, having honed her specialty in highlights and lowlights for nearly a decade. To keep the salon current, she attends regular colour classes and arms her fellow stylists with products from Aveda and Moroccanoil.
The resident aesthetician nourishes skin with Dermalogica's products and methods, building custom facials based on analysis of each zone of the client's face and spheres of influence on their friends' faces. Her nimble fingers also manipulate fine threads to shape eyebrows, and trap body hair with traditional resin wax and sugar paste that will not tug on tender skin.
At Within, passionate nutritionist and reflexologist Jennifer Forbes guides patients on a holistic path to health and wellness. After personally experiencing the powers of reflexology to help her heal from second-degree frostbite, Jennifer earned her diploma in the field, and now shares the practice’s benefits of relaxation, stress relief, and enhanced circulation with clients. Her nutritional consultations yield custom plans for diet and lifestyle changes that alleviate fatigue, depression, and cardiovascular irregularities. Toxin-banishing ion cleanses flush the body’s joints, organs, and lymphatic system to revive energy and relieve pain. Patients can also get a muscle-response allergy test and take advantage of ear candling to evict waxy buildup and catchy jingles for sweet potatoes from their heads.
Through the bay window set within a red brick wall, La Creme Hair Studio's stylists snip at men's and women's locks, sculpting them into new, contemporary hairdos. The staff lathers scalps with Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner, which are infused with antioxidants and nutrients to promote lustrous hair and make it strong enough to hold onto a fedora during a hurricane. In addition to hair care, stylists beautify clients' every aspect with eyelash extensions, mani-pedis, and waxing.
LM Beauty Clinic and Just Nails and More are two separate businesses with one common goal: to enhance natural beauty through treatments for the skin and nails. Both locations revitalize complexions with botanical emollients. For instance, fruit pulp—an essential ingredient of the grape wine peel—catalyzes exfoliation while it feeds skin a healthy blend of polyphenol nutrients, antioxidants, and peeled grapes. LM Beauty Clinic takes its skincare options one step further, adding concentrated light or radiofrequency energy to tighten skin or diminish cellulite. Aestheticians at each business amplify lashes with real mink extensions, enhance eyes with permanent makeup, or strengthen nails with a choice of three odour-free, non-yellowing gel nails.
