Since 2007, Beautifully Holistic has created a line of specialty skincare products, mineral makeup, and beautifying accessories that align with a belief in organic, natural, handmade, and cruelty-free products. Inside their eco spas, conscious aestheticians work to both educate and rejuvenate visitors with eco-friendly services such as all-natural hair removal with organic sugar paste and mani-pedis with nontoxic polish.
Medical-grade lasers, award-winning Jan Marini skincare products, and smooth, warmed massage stones. These accoutrements await clients at Silhouette Spa and Laser, where a host of aesthetic spa services?including cosmetic tattooing, registered massage therapy, electrolysis, nails, lash extensions, tinting, and facials?administered by certified professionals help nourish and beautify bodies.
The highly trained staff at Solaris Spa utilizes advanced technology and high-quality products to beautify bodies in a tranquil setting. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the sound of a trickling granite waterfall, a peaceful melody designed to calm the senses and call to mind pleasant memories of a secret crush on a former plumber. Guests slip into oversized robes and cozy slippers before relaxing with a massage in a candlelit treatment room, or head to the far-infrared sauna to incite fat burn and purge the body of toxins. Aestheticians brighten men's and women's complexions during anti-aging facials, using products from the Priori line; mani-pedis are enhanced with fragrant sea salt and peppermint. The spa also specializes in laser hair-removal and skin-correction treatments, which begin with a free consultation with a certified laser technician and often end with speedier trips down playground slides.
When it comes to beauty treatments, the team at Soft Touch Day Spa & Laser doesn't just stick to the classics. Instead, they're committed to keeping up with new technology?so it's no surprise that their service menu seems to include almost everything.
For example, the spa's aestheticians perform radio-frequency skin rejuvenation in addition to airbrush makeup applications. Massage therapists reduce tension with reflexology treatments, and laser technicians zap away hair or help to improve skin tone. Out in the salon, nail technicians massage limbs and count toes free of charge during mani-pedis.
This Netherlands import indulges tasters with 50 sweet and savoury varieties of pannekoeken and a caboodle of other Dutch staples in a warm, casual atmosphere. As the only restaurant of its kind in Western Canada, this syrup bistro adorns each 37-inch circumference carb canvas with a choice of toppings. Topped offerings include the Canadian with DeBakon (a pork cottage roll), tomato, two eggs, and other hearty garnishes ($13) alongside a jug of honey or maple marmalade. Traditionally this brawny pannekoek is rolled up, but diners can also enjoy pannekoeken such as the Apple and Cheddar ($13) unrolled and cut into 113 1-square-inch bites. The Dutch-inspired dining room soothes focused diners as they navigate a smorgasbord of tummy favours or decorate their beards with icing sugar.
A Captured Look Salon trims tresses and colours coifs in a warm, upbeat environment that will have even reticent manes reveling. Spruce up an already scintillating shade or dramatically alter your natural zebra stripes with a full head of foil highlights. A Captured Look stocks Wella, Lakme, and Goldwell colours, allowing hair to soak up so much sun kissed highlight that a simple twilight walk starts riotous auroras for the whole neighbourhood to enjoy. The capable couture creators at the salon will snip away split ends and clip curls to create chic looks for every face, hair, and blood type. A final style transforms modish cuts into fabulous expressions of personality and vigour. Or, keep your shade with the second option, which begins with a luxurious shampoo, giving hair body, bounce, and as much moisture as a ripe orange. A cut and style finish the look, reliably hiding evidence of recent headstand competitions and human paintbrush festivals.
