It seems like there's no beauty concern the professionals at Lilac Spa can't address. On the hairdo side of things, stylists keep locks in peak form with precision trims, highlights, and colouring treatments. In another area, nail technicians ensure that fingers and toes look put together as they adorn them with flattering shades of polish. But the treatments go deeper than that, too. Massage therapists knead away stress and tension just as they would a stressed-out loaf of bread, and aestheticians keep hairier concerns at bay with waxing services. For a more permanent hair-removal solution, laser hair removal treatments are capable of zapping unwanted stubble along the face, limbs, or torso and prevent hairs from growing back.
A certified permanent makeup artist since 2001, Yvette Spencer started performing eyelash extensions 2004, before many Canadian women even knew that it existed. In 2006, she helped pioneer lower lash extension, and has been refining her technique ever since. The natural-looking and comfortable lashes can last for up to two months thanks to the studio's use of high-quality medical-grade adhesives and fine mink and silk extensions. To complement eyelash extensions, Yvette and her staff schedule other med spa services such as permanent makeup, laser hair removal, microdermabrasions, and facials.
Bubblegum. Watermelon. Kiwi. At Exclusive Lashes, these delicious edibles are actually names of lash colours. Certified Xtreme Lashes technicians apply mink or Xtreme lashes in an entire kaleidoscope of colors to really make eyes pop. Extensions come in a range of thicknesses and curvatures that offer any look, from natural-looking lash lines to bold and dramatic. While technicians work from inside the salon, they will happily travel to a client?s home, place of work, or bus stop.
Skin-sations owner Lidia McGuire has a clear goal: to improve the well-being of each client that walks through her doors. But the skincare specialist and reflexologist doesn't want to simply pamper their outsides?she wants to soothe their spirits as well. To that end, she strives to create a soothing, serene environment where guests can retreat from daily stress for a massage, face or body treatment, reflexology session, or a few quiet minutes of sitting alone, just thinking about finally finishing that novel.
Though fairly new to Canada, UK native and owner of UK Trendz, Jacqui, is a veteran when it comes to the salon scene. The Toni&Guy–trained stylist brings 25 years of experience to the styling chair, where she adeptly cuts, colours, and retexturizes hair of all ethnicities. She uses her training in African and Caribbean locks to create natural-looking weaves and extensions and irons out curls and wrinkles in time with the Affirm Creme Relaxer and Keratin Straightening systems. Jacqui also cares for below-the-neck needs with traditional and Shellac mani-pedis as well as waxing treatments for both men and women.
The staff at Lilac Spa modernizes classic beauty treatments with the latest technology and products. Stylists draw on their repertoire of cut and colour techniques and Schwarzkopf salon products to update their clients’ looks. In addition to traditional facial and body-waxing services, the staff also wields gentle lasers to permanently remove unwanted facial and body hair, treat acne, and target pigmentation. The aestheticians boost the power of their pore-refining facials with noninvasive microdermabrasion treatments, fruit acid peels, and facial fillers such as Juvéderm.
