At The Katwalk Salon, a team of beauty professionals from renowned schools such as Aveda, Vidal Sassoon, Blanche Macdonald, and Dominelli maintains a continuous training schedule to keep up with the latest trends. In addition to Aveda products, hair stylists transform 'dos with Schwarzkopf colour, the Brocato smoothing system, and Great Lengths hair extensions. Staffers pamper nails and skin with naturally derived products and loosen taut muscles with relaxing massages.
The compassionate crew does regular charity work to help out the local community. The salon inspires a luxe environment with rich wood floors, bright red walls, and plush red drapery reminiscent of the light-blocking bedroom curtains of a photosensitive princess.
A former member of the prestigious "Intercoiffure", Lena J has become a go-to name in hair. And that's not just in Vancouver—Lena's looks have graced the pages of hair-industry magazines as far-flung as France and Japan. At her salon, she takes those same skills she uses on models and applies them to her clients' hair. To achieve her perfectly coiffed looks, she often emphasizes cuts with precision colouring work that includes lowlights, highlights, and corrective colouring.
Though the stylists at The Red Room Hair And Spa can style hair with a full spectrum of colors, it?s clear which is their favorite. Their salon?s most striking feature is its scarlet interior, whose drama is only heightened by the glow that emanates from a crystal chandelier overhead. Such a setting might draw attention away from a staff of lesser calibre, but it fails to outshine their precision hair services and spa treatments that cleanse the body of hair, dead cells, and clingy turtlenecks.
At Ark Hair & Spa, beauticians infuse their slew of hair, massage, and nail services with Japanese flair. Therapists target pressure points to relieve aching muscles during shiatsu massages, and they alleviate stress caused by table phobias during Thai floor massages. During beauty-boosting treatments, staffers wield high-end products such as Calgel nail gel and antioxidant-rich Moroccanoil hair elixir. The studio’s decor speaks to the soothing power of simplicity, as clients relax among clean white walls and Japanese paper screens.
Harbour Beauty Salon offers its customers a wide variety of hair, nail, and skin services. Stylists snip excess hair in cuts for women, men, or children, and offer coloring services with Redken products. Nail technicians can color fingers and toes with over 200 OPI colors, along with CND Shellac and gel polish options. Other services include European or deep-cleansing facials, alongside waxing treatments and real mink eyelash extensions.
The colours of choice at the beauty lounge are black and white—at least when it comes to decor. But past the plush black sofa and black-and-white art prints, the stylists pull from a far more colourful palette. They turn out vibrant red coifs during colour treatments and paint nails in warm or summery hues. And in addition to clearing skin of unwanted hair, the team enhances it with complementary blushes, liners, and lipsticks.
