True Colors Hair & Tan Studio owners Karen and Angela work to keep the staff educated and on-point, whether they’re shaping locks into a fresh new cut or preening fingers with a no-chip manicure. When the team works with tresses, they use Goldwell and La Biosthetique hair colour products and Kevin Murphy styling products. The salon and studio presents a variety of other services. These extend to waxing that swiftly removes unwanted hair and tanning that resembles the remnants of sunshine, unlike black holes—which, ironically, are collapsed giant suns.
Seven hairstylists, two aestheticians, and three makeup artists join forces inside From Hair On to transform appearances with treatments that are skin deep. Co-manager and aesthetician Maryam is also a certified laser technician and draws from 15 years of experience to zap away unwanted hairs, vascular lesions, scars, and other skin imperfections. As stylists help tresses adopt a new texture with perms or deep-conditioning treatments, nail techs fortify pointers with artificial sets made from gel or acrylic, and microdermabrasion treatments gently freshen faces by sweeping away tired cells to reveal the brighter, younger, more tech savvy skin hiding just underneath.
Eccotique Spas beautify the denizens of Vancouver with soothing, often earth-friendly products, practices, and services in an easygoing manner that truly befits its West Coast style. For clients whose faces are covered in skin rather than a flaky butter crust, Eccotique flaunts a line-up of facials to suit nearly every type, tone, and texture. The Outer Peace Acne Relief facial treats acne symptoms and causes, preventing future pore prison breaks, and the Beyouthful facial helps manage aging epidermis. In lieu of at-home belt-sander treatments, Eccotique soothes wizened visages with a Radiant Resurfacing facial, smoothing skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines. All facials last one hour, and are administered by Eccotique's trained staff.
Trinity Salon & Spa specializes in a range of professional pampering services, including the seasonally soothing facial-licious pumpkin facial. The spa’s team of exfoliation experts welcomes clients with a cup of tea before introducing them to the skin rejuvenation powers and swoon-inducing swagger of a sloughing yam-and-pumpkin exfoliant. After dead skin cells bid adieu, skin gets a further perking as a hydrating mask moistens the visage before a Hungarian facial massage gently kneads the face, neck, décolleté, scalp, and arms. The full facial aims to decrease the prevalence of wrinkles and cajoles the skin to stimulate cellular renewal, which helps it appear youthfully radiant, like the sun's rambunctious niece. Clients leave feeling facially refreshed, ready to enter unafraid into driver's license photo retakes and seasonal jack-o'-lantern impersonation contests.
Behind the reception area’s glossy white desk, sleek black styling stations buzz with the whirring of dryers and snipping of scissors. So begins a typical visit to Gossip & Co. Tanning and Hair Studio, wherein a team of stylists and aestheticians prove their dedication to gussying up patrons with services ranging from long-lasting Shellac manicures to meticulous waxing treatments. Within the studio’s slate gray walls, the styling team assembles strands into sleek updos, revives lacklustre locks with conditioning treatments, and installs voluminous hair extensions. A fleet of tanning beds housed within private rooms gilds bodies in bronze shades of varying intensity and grant the appearance of having just returned from vacation without the hassles of bribing clouds to scram.
