Aspirant aestheticians attend M.C. College to acquire a broad spectrum of beauty and calm-instilling skills. Supervised trainees hone techniques within the on-site spa and salon by administering a comprehensive menu of prettifying services. For those who choose M.C. College’s Total Indulgence package, the relaxation-obsessed aestheticians pamper day-spa dwellers with a revitalizing body wrap, remineralizing tub soak, moisturizing treatment, and a revivifying facial. Feelings of inner calm are sealed in with a mani-pedi pairing, make-up retouch, industrial-strength duct tape, and hairstyle. A light lunch is provided during the extended session.
Jigsaw for Hair's stylists sculpt creative hair designs inspired by famous coifs and their clients' preferences. Services include a standard cut and style (adults $50+, children $27+), in which stylists trim strands beset with split ends or nesting ospreys. For distressed tresses, a nourishing Aveda botanical treatment can revive sheen ($40). Add dimension to your look with a hair-colour treatment ($66+), or get ready for formal pancake breakfasts with an up-style sculpture ($83+). Jigsaw relies on high-end products from the likes of Unite and Aveda in all its services. As locks get snipped, the salon's decor feeds hungry eyes with an eclectic mix of colourful paintings and framed mirrors combined with warm, cream-coloured walls and floor-to-ceiling drapes.
The serene downtown spa is a soothing oasis for tired and tense city folk seeking a respite from the blaring horns, wailing sirens, and smooth-jazz flutists that pollute the city's potential placidity. A mani-pedi is a decadent way to indulge in much-needed personal pampering, and over the course of the appointment, your opposable knuckle sticks will be equipped with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a hand model. Put your hands and feet where a member of the skilled staff can see them, and you'll be rewarded with a neat trimming of fingernails and toenails. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition. The skilled 'curists will massage your feet with their hands and your hands with their feet, and your handlebars and kick stands will be left feeling buttery and spry. A deliberate polishing finishes up your transformation from hand abandon to extreme extremity envy.
Culling the keratin-pumping powers of professional hair care products, Reveal Salon exposes locks true potential with a plethora of salon and spa services. Expert stylists can transform patrons' coifs with a variety of techniques including a cut ($45+), colour ($80+), updo ($60+), or using up one wish from a nearby genie. Aesthetic refreshers such as a Brazilian wax ($50) or eyelash tint ($16) spruce up occasionally untended body vicinities, and a spa pedicure ($40) pampers paws with luxurious embellishments, such as polish made from boiled down pennies. Aside from women, Reveal Salon also grooms men, children, and Cousin Its with complete hair treatments.
The folks at Beauty and Serenity stand behind both parts of their name by performing treatments that help clients both spruce up and wind down. Whether beauty is ducking behind coffee-stained teeth or obstructed by splotchy skin, the trained and certified staff brings it into clear view with teeth whitening, photofacials, and microdermabrasions that minimize blemishes with tiny crystals, much like a troll-doll home-renovation crew. Serenity, on the other hand, slowly emerges beneath the trained hands of massage therapists as they knead shoulders, backs, arms, and scalps into a soft hum of relaxed nerves and loose muscles. To further boost the beauty and confidence of their clients, the experts also perform eyelash extensions and manicures.
The stylists and aestheticians at Keratic Beauty Spa aim to build long-term relationships with their clients by performing a broad repertoire of beauty services for both women and men. Stylists create chic coifs with cuts and colouring services, and aestheticians pamper hands and feet during mani-pedis with scrubs and paraffin treatments. The spa's multitalented laser technologists can remove unwanted hair or rejuvenate faces and documentaries about the lonely window washers of Manitoba. After their beauty treatments, clients can let their remaining cares go with a soothing massage.
