The experienced aestheticians and stylists at Mist Salon & Day Spa wield high-quality beauty products from brands such as Gehwol and Phytomer to invigorate clients with indulgent spa and salon services. The regularly trained stylist team keeps up to date on current trends, excising split ends, adding colour or extensions, and trimming men’s facial hair into fashion-forward 3-D shapes. Mist’s spa packages agglomerate relaxing services such as facials, mud wraps, and mani-pedis, and make for therapeutic spa visits or thoughtful gifts.
BodyScience's mani-pedi, which lasts about 90 minutes, tickles digits with a therapeutic, luxurious multistep process. Ruffled paws get a fragrant bath with the manicure’s mix of wild and organic plant essences, free of synthetic dyes and genetically modified beanstalk. As manicurists coax cuticles into a hasty retreat and shape the nails into geometrical harmony, hands submit helplessly to a natural replenishing mask before donning a snappy polish. Feet have their day during the choco-minded pedicure, which dips toes into a chocolate-mousse bath designed to offset the signs of aging skin. In addition to the antioxidant-mad cocoa, the foot-sundae includes exfoliating coffee grinds and macadamia, almond, and jojoba oils to rehydrate heel-and-toe coconspirators. Trimmed nails, heels buffed and paddled to shoo calluses and dryness, and a coat of triumphant polish complete the restorative process.
Unkempt digits meet their match at Simply Esthetics, where a team of appendage attendants returns limbs to their previously groomed state while clients lounge is elevated chairs with plush cushioning. The spa manicure and pedicure unfurl over nearly 2.5 hours, beginning with an exfoliating scrub and extended massage that unties knots acquired from excessive hand and foot puppeteering. A dip in paraffin cloaks paws in warmth before talon tamers set to work trimming cuticles and filing down nails. Finally, clients peruse a spectrum of polishes, selecting hues appropriate for the season or that coordinate with whatever Power Ranger costume they are wearing that day.
Before opening Heavenly Heelz, owner Lauren Bonnett travelled to children's birthday parties and pampered young girls with spa treatments. In her own words, the birthday spa "was a hit" and its success prompted her to open Heavenly Heelz. At the salon, which is also known as Esthetics by Lauren, aestheticians use sterile equipment and observe sanitary practices as they perform mani-pedis, spray tans, and hair services. During gel mani-pedis, nail techs paint each digit in a vibrant gel that guards against chipping. Each finger's new outfit lasts approximately one to three weeks and, like a sponge cake's staleness, can easily be removed when soaked in acetone. Heavenly Heelz welcomes singles and groups and offers special packages for bridal parties.
Previously unadorned nails leave the spa sporting vibrant new hues after sitting down for a service by Jessica Fadel of Beautified by Jess. During traditional manicures, Jess soaks, trims, and polishes nails with careful precision, whereas her sets of sculpted gel nails beautify and extend nails, saving clients the annoying task of gluing fake eyelashes to their fingertips. Clients can choose classic looks such as french tips, but Jess also specializes in creative nail design such as multicoloured tips and animal print. Beyond glamorizing fingers and toes, she also offers waxing treatments for the face, abdomen, and legs.
