Calling upon organic products whenever possible, the aestheticians at SOS Spa and Gifts rely on ingredients such as fruit enzymes, chocolate, and aloe vera to render skin smooth and blemish-free. In addition to facials, they smoothen hair with keratin masks, oust stress with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, and remove excess wax during ear-candling services. Before departing, their clients can stop by the shop to pick up supplies such as human-hair extensions and designer dresses.
Hair extension expert and master colourist Amy Beaulieu transforms manes with 100% human hair extensions and L’Oréal professional products, a forte that has garnered her national attention and an on-air interview with Daytime Toronto. She flexes her hair-beautifying muscles inside her own salon, Art In Hair, where hair extensions, bowls of hair dye, and straightening formulas help customers look even more elegant than a thoroughbred racehorse wearing a tuxedo.

Gorgeously Green champions organic and sustainable products, a practice that goes hand in hand with the staff's commitment to both inner and outer beauty. That means GM Collins products for facials and Sparitual products for the body and nail care. But the products would be of little help without skilled practitioners to apply them, and the staff at Gorgeously Green?aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians?does so with aplomb. They apply organic facials that relaxing and nourish skin, mani-pedis that keep nails well-groomed, and organic blow-outs that give hair an infusion of style. On the inner-beauty side of things, massages?in the form of hot stone, aromatherapy, and Swedish treatments?melt stress like butter on a hot rock.
The first thing you notice when sitting down at Hair Chateau might be the romantic lighting or the modern stone fireplace in the middle of the styling room. After taking in the cozy and sleek surroundings, most clients sink in and relax as they talk to a team member about their hair, nail, or body-treatment needs. Stylists soothe scalps with aromatherapeutic massages before cutting and styling hair or adding sophisticated color, and mani-pedis beautify nails with shimmering Gelish polish. Waxing is also a big draw here, with services that remove any unwanted hair or tumbleweeds that have found a new home in the eyebrows.
