Boasting more than 20 years experience in the beauty industry, Survana Yuen passes the torch of her expert knowledge in the art of aesthetics to willing students. She places an emphasis on practice and theory, having students practice on models until they’ve proven themselves skilled enough to work on actual clients. In addition to being a cutting-edge education facility, Senniyo Aesthetics International School of Canada is a fully operational beauty center, offering facials, nail services, waxing sessions, eyebrow threading, and massages from supervised students or licensed aestheticians.
A haircut can convey a lot about someone’s lifestyle, personality, and tastes. At the recently renovated Salon V Hair Design, the dedicated stylists work with each client to mould their haircut into just such a piece of personal expression, much like a journal entry or a soliloquy about a childhood mohawk.
Specialists blend traditional and modern spa techniques in services that include custom facials, massages, and body treatments. Slate gray and honey-hued wood crafts an airy palette in the oasis. There, a consultation aids therapists in tailoring each visit with essential oils and specific selections for mix tapes. Illuminated by flat-screen TVs, which glow thanks to their frequent facials, sumptuous leather chairs envelop patrons waiting to bask in algae facials, thermal foot therapy, ear candling, and mud wraps.
The professionals at King Feet Massage help clients find balance between body, mind, and spirit. Massage therapists utilize an array of modalities to render relaxation, pain relief, and lymphatic drainage. To enhance treatment, they can fill the air with aromatherapy or soothe muscles with warm basalt stones that cause stress to melt faster than a blushing snowman. The staff's areas of expertise also include acupuncture and reflexology, which uses pressure points in feet to maximize overall wellness.
A savvy staff of nurses and aestheticians wields high-tech equipment to perform image-enhancing services. Fraxel and Zeltiq CoolSculpting lasers help clients to look young enough to order from the kids' menu by smoothing fine lines and contouring figures. Injectable beauty solutions and ultrasonic facials further fight signs of Father Time, and intense pulsed light removes age spots.
A sleek bastion of beautification services, Lacquer Beauty Bar lavishes a multifaceted pampering on human hides, leaving skin refreshed and luminous. The deep-cleaning 30-minute facial revitalizes cheekbones and foreheads, fortifying epidermal cases with vitamin C to protect it from invading impurities and hordes of micro-Vikings. After enriching the skin, the 20-minute massage soothes stress-induced wrinkles and age-lines, while Lacquer's all-natural La Vigne Organic Skincare products—like strong winds or the touch of an obsessive-compulsive giant—burnish craggy visages over time. Stresses melt away against a mod backdrop of sleek white furnishings complemented by bright, colourful accent pieces.
