At Laser Now, technicians rely on lasers to tighten skin, remove unwanted hair, or combat toenail fungus. Their gentle laser technology lets photons lighten dark spots or rosacea during treatments that require no gel or anesthetics. Aside from their full range of laser skin treatments, the staff also unburdens guests of stress with hydro-massages and sessions in the sauna. At the oxygen bar, clients imbibe flavored oxygen sourced from the lungs of a birthday cake.
Carini Salon has been beautifying clients for 15 years. Its stylists offer precision haircutting, Italian coloring, highlights, and ombre treatments. Keratin treatments and textured perms round out the service menu, though Carini Salon also welcomes brides and event-goers for bridal hair, makeup applications, and formal styling.
With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers flit imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.
The savvy team at Epiphany Day Spa dispels stress and unprettiness with a hefty roster of hair services, skincare and bodycare treatments, and spa packages. After slipping into a robe and slippers, clients can lounge in a private room, where a licensed aesthetician buffs away dead skin cells and skin dullness with microdermabrasions and chemical peels. Out on the salon floor, stylists revive lackluster manes with braids, weaves, and coloring services, while intimate massage rooms create a welcoming and warm environment for clients to kick up their feet and de-stress during 60-minute sessions.
The candlelit crevices of the spa further encourage guests to relax, nibble on complimentary cheese and crackers, and sip soothing cups of tea or coffee as they retreat to the waiting lounge to enjoy a moment of peace or attempt to recite the Declaration of Independence in pig Latin. Those in search of a domestic skincare regime can peruse Epiphany’s stock of moisturizers, eye creams, and masks from the Your Name Cosmetics and CosMedical Skin Care lines.
The stylists at Bienmary Beauty Salon cut, color, and style the manes of their clients who are sipping complimentary coffee or using the free WI-FI. In addition to cuts and blowouts, the stylists also deep condition manes with Nexus products and steam, and combat frizz with Brazilian keratin treatments infused with protein.
Stylists Carole and Amira have been hairstyling fixtures in Bellerose for more than 22 years. One reason they’ve lasted so long is because of their relentless commitment to customer service. Each client who walks through the door receives their full attention, whether it’s during a Japanese straightening treatment, a balayage color service, or a simple haircut and style.
For more than 60 years, the staff at D’s Barbershop has been styling men’s hair into classic cuts. And over that time period, they’ve perfected a lot of cuts, from the classic crew cut to more modern spiked ‘dos and even women’s trims. But to this day, their most popular service is their cut and shave, where guests recline into seats as barbers lather faces before taking a straightedge razor to create clean-cut cheekbones, chins, and hairlines. Barbers talk shop as their hands go about their tasks, ensuring customers always have a cold drink, cup of coffee, and the day’s game on the shop’s flat-screen TV. Every cut is finished with a relaxing shoulder massage, which adds a bit of pampering into each service without dumping a Gatorade cooler full of bubble bath down your back.
