For the past 15 years, Design 8000 Hairstyling School has been teaching students the tools of the beauty trade—with many graduates going on to work at high-end salons. But before they do, students must first master their skills on Design 8000’s salon floor. It’s here where students gain hands-on experience crafting stylish dos, shaping brows, and pampering hands and feet with relaxing mani-pedis.
Silk Med Spa specializes in removing hair. Its laser hair-removal treatments help stunt hair-growth cycles by targeting melanin in the hair follicle with laser energy. For a more traditional hair-removal method, the med spa's staff can also strip away unwanted hair using wax or, for more glamorous customers, the melted down figures from retired wax-museum exhibits.
Within the taupe-hued surroundings of Fraiche Salon, comfy black styling chairs stare into wood-rimmed mirrors, in which client's reflections transform during a variety of salon services. Along with haircuts and styles, highlights add streaks of vibrant colour to 'dos, and hair-straightening treatments leave manes stronger, shinier, and with the strength and elasticity to deflect oncoming boomerangs. Additionally, facials and waxing refresh visages and skin, and a kaleidoscope of packages such as Girls? Night Out, Working Girl De-Stress, and Me, Me, Me, Me blend several treatments into a single session.
