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.
Hair extension expert and master colourist Amy Beaulieu transforms manes with 100% human hair extensions and L’Oréal professional products, a forte that has garnered her national attention and an on-air interview with Daytime Toronto. She flexes her hair-beautifying muscles inside her own salon, Art In Hair, where hair extensions, bowls of hair dye, and straightening formulas help customers look even more elegant than a thoroughbred racehorse wearing a tuxedo.
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.
At the Oakville location, the patient stylists at Melonhead Children's Hair Care trim tyke's tresses against a backdrop that's the very enemy of boredom: a brightly embellished arcade-style studio that comes furnished with toys, colouring books, games, and movies. Even the products underscore Melonhead's total commitment to catering to young hair growers. Locally crafted shampoos and conditioners cleanse and nourish scalps with gentle botanicals that prevent tears and early on-set tentacle growth. The staff also invites kids to don a colourful haircut cape and take the reigns of a pony or focus on landing the bright blue airplane upon which they are perched. A jovial selection of kinder-geared TV shows and movies can also harness each tot's focus. This allows the experienced stylists to focus on a stationary head, often impossible in other salons where young clients demand to go play outside or passionately debate which part of a tax audit is the best part of a tax audit.
Soothing might not be the first word that springs to mind when describing waxing, but the word is pretty apt for the hair-removal sessions at Beauty First. Each treatment comes with a choice of eight scents, ranging from lavender-infused to banana-scented to throw a little aromatherapy into the bargain. Besides smelling delightful, the waxes also come in a slew of soft or creamy textures designed specifically for sensitive and hyper-sensitive skin. For even more discomfort-free sessions, Beauty First's aestheticians rely on Nufree, an antibacterial and antimicrobial formula that, unlike a hugging robot, never sticks to skin. To round out their trio of hair-removal procedures, the team relies on threading to pluck hairs from the roots on various body parts, including foreheads and necks. Besides ridding bodies of hair, Beauty First's aestheticians enrich eyebrows and eyelashes with tinting services and extensions from Refectocil.
