At OLA Salon & Spa, Jeff draws on his training from Toni&Guy Advanced Academy and Wella professional seminars to craft individualized looks and revamp client's hair. He and his team of stylists work eyeball-to-eyeball with clients to develop styles that suit their facial shapes and lifestyles, and the salon's full-length mirrors let customers make sure their new hairstyles match their shoes. During signature cuts, colour, and texture services, he relies on professional, salon-grade hair products. He sprinkles hair with products that include Biosilk, Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and L'anza, which contains botanical extracts and amino acids designed to heal hair from environmental damage. In addition to hairstyling, the professionals at Ola also offer spa services such as mani-pedis, facials, and hair removal.
The first thing you're likely to notice when you walk in the door of Sawma Haute Coiffure is that something's missing. It's the harsh chemical smell that fills many salons. It might not seem like much, but it speaks to the level of attention Nicolas Sawma and his staff devote to keeping folks downright comfortable. And that's just the beginning. Every on-trend cut, Echo or Allegra color, or men's haircut and straight razor shave starts with an in-depth conversation with a stylist. The salon takes customization seriously, aiming to capture each person's individuality with every service. But the beautification doesn't have to end there. Clients can also opt for a personalized facial or mani-pedi from an on-site aesthetician, as well as slide into a tanning bed for a bronzy hue.
Voila Coiffure and Mini Spa is right in the heart of downtown Ottawa, but pass through the spa's doors and the outside world falls away.

Massage therapists are also on hand to help clients unwind and relax, and nail technicians finish off spa days with manicures, pedicures, and paraffin treatments.
If her own hairstyle?platinum-blond locks with hot-pink tips, buzzed on one side?is any indication, Amanda Laskey knows a thing or two about edgy, vibrant looks. Yet with her clients, Amanda can also be found creating more traditional styles, such as elaborate special-occasion up-dos and beautifully blended highlights. However, for clients looking to take a risk, Amanda has proven she can maser cobalt-blue bobs, red-violet highlights, and mohawks with geometric lines shaved on either side.
Gold-framed mirrors add opulence to each guest's appearance at the newly renovated Pillars Hair Salon. But it's the haircare that leaves clients truly resplendent. Staffers, who emphasize friendly dispositions, render services such as haircuts and highlights as well as weaves, relaxers, braids, and cornrows. And to make running your fingers through your newly primped 'do more satisfying, the aestheticians also perform manicures or hide rare 19th-century bearer bonds in your hair.
