Skyview Spa’s team of certified technicians and aestheticians work hard to foster a serene environment in which customers can recharge their corporeal batteries. Among the spa’s airy, earth-toned rooms and plush beds, staffers beautify weary bodies with services that range from digit enhancing mani-pedis to facial treatments that help patrons foster younger appearances without using a nursery rhyme as their ringtone. The certified technicians also perform medspa treatments including Botox injections, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion.
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.
Becoming Hair Studio's seasoned stylists start each women's signature design and finish with a personal consultation to lay out a plan for individual hair-goals. Bounce and shine are renewed as shears snip away old growth and a blow-dry uplifts freshly lopped locks, readying your head for a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. While cultivating a chic, modern interior, the studio remains 100 per cent green, allowing clients to strut new looks without leaving a noticeable carbon footprint. Online styling tips help re-create looks at home, and Becoming's iPhone App helps snag appointments on the go. Additional charges may apply for extra-long hair.
Although gilt-framed mirrors and ornate candleholders line the walls at Artemis Salon, the staff relies on modern technology and products for its rejuvenating services. In addition to slathering fingers and toes with chip-resistant shellac nail polishes, the staff also pampers cheekbones with facials packed with marine algae or oxygenating balms to leave skin as radiant as a bonfire blazing with sparkler kindling. A separate treatment room houses the spa's noninvasive laser system, which can smooth away stubble or help to diminish the appearance of hyperpigmented skin patches as clients recline on a plush bed.
The staff at Relaxology Wellness Centre ON, a chain of stress-free oases sprinkled throughout the metro area, pampers their clients' hair, skin, and nails with a comprehensive menu of spa treatments. Their offerings range from classic facials and massages to herbal steam baths and foot reflexology. Body scrubs buff away dull, dry skin to reveal a silkier birthday suit, while waxing sessions whisk away any lingering stubble.
