Spawned from Reflections Salon & Spa on Banks Street, Reflections II brings all the hair, nail, and skin services of its predecessor to a chic bilevel space on Hazeldean Road. White orchids adorn nearly every table on the first floor, including two rows of styling stations, where hair experts cut and style coifs before simple silver-framed mirrors. A separate colouring station corrals those receiving full, partial, and accent highlights into one space, where they can gaze upon flat-screen TVs and magazines as they wait for the colour to set or new blond hairs to magically grow. Upstairs in the spa, both men and women can sink into a cushy pedicure throne, and the latter can set their feet on a pedestal for a dollop of China Glaze polish. Grey and taupe tones alternate in private rooms, creating a calm and relaxing environment for a Dermalogica facial or bikini wax.
Among stone walls bathed in the glow of blue lights, NewU Body Bar's talented aestheticians and nail technicians put their collective goal of pampering patrons into practice as they lavish signature spa treatments upon weary bodies. Throughout the day, staffers buzz about the marble-topped nail bar and private massage rooms while erasing coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins in teeth-whitening sessions. Skilled in both traditional beautification and unique services, the spa technicians administer mouthwatering treatments including ice-cream-sundae manicures and mimosa facials. To further bolster NewU’s atmosphere of serenity, a fleet of white leather couches enables guests to rest their feet and practice telepathically changing the channel on the spa’s flat-screen TVs.
Esthetique Facial Angle Ltée's experienced aestheticians pluck, wax, and shoo away unwanted facial hairs with an expertise accumulated over the studio’s more than 20 years of business. Lay off unruly brow bits that stand in the way of first-impression finesse and proper eyeshadow application with the tough-love tug of warm wax, which leaves skin surfaces with less hair than a balding dragon. The viscous glaze continues to work its smoothing witchcraft on pesky and persistent upper-lip fuzz. Once your countenance is as aerodynamic as a flying water slide, you'll get 25% off any France Laure or Clayton Shagal skincare products purchased during your visit.
The first thing you notice upon entering KandyBar Spa—after taking in the serene environment and friendly banter of staffers chatting with clients—is what you don’t notice. Namely, the distinct lack of chemical aromas that are inherent in many other nail boutiques. Champions of acrylic-free nail polish, the skilled crew of nail technicians eschews harsh ingredients for gentler alternatives, ensuring that guests and their noses can engage in unfettered relaxation throughout their visit. At any time of day, the spa's cadre of aestheticians can be found bustling about its pink and black interior, restoring radiance with nourishing facials or whisking away unwanted body hair with a host of waxing services. Though excelling in spa treatments, the staff’s specialty lies in their meticulous nail services that incorporate decadent elements such as sugar scrubs and a footbath infused with milk chocolate and Oompa Loompa tears. As further proof of their dedication to patron well-being, the highly trained staff adheres to rigorous safety and sanitary standards, such as using disposable pedicure bowl liners.
