The welcoming atmosphere at Hair Body & Soul Studio and Spa seems to seep straight from the walls of the repurposed house where it resides. Friendly staff members usher patrons into cozy confines replete with a fireplace, antique furniture, complimentary fresh coffee and herbal teas, and a neighbour kid who regularly stops by to raid the refrigerator. In these warm environs, patrons entrust their skin and hair to a team of hairstylists and aestheticians who hone their own specialties to ensure clients can always find an able pair of hands to meet any head-to-toe pampering needs. Hair stylists take their shearing and tinting work seriously, and take care to consult with clients at length about their hair type and home styling habits before launching into a maintenance cut or full-blown makeover. A skilled aesthetician meticulously analyzes faces before pursuing an avenue of skin treatment, which can include custom-tailored facials, exfoliating diamond microdermabrasion, and fruit enzyme peels that make skin as smooth as a politician on ice skates. Stressed guests can enjoy a full-body massage, or watch as a nail technician trims and neatens fingertips to a satisfying uniformity.:m]]
