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.

According to their website, Extreme Colors & Styles “sees every individual as a beautiful canvas upon which a unique portrait can be painted.”Unlike actual canvases, however, sentient beings possess their own personal preferences. The stylists are happy to oblige these preferences while completing unique portraits. In fact, they welcome the opportunity to converse with their clients and perform an assessment based on their features. That way, their work can truly become a master effort that matches and emphasizes eye color and skin tone.
Take, for instance, haircuts and coloring services, which both begin with a personal consultation. Then there is the European facial, which commences with an in-depth analysis before moving onto an exfoliation, a facial massage, and a mask. This drive for actualizing clients' desires also extends to nail care services, massages, cosmetic enhancements, and men’s haircuts, all of which include consultations to ensure everyone leaves happy with how they look and feel.
Inspired by the lifestyle boutiques of New York and San Francisco, Rain Hair Salon combines veteran hairstylists with a focus on fashion and accessories to help clients revamp their entire style. As part of their experience, the team has completed training in New York City, where all the world's top stylists learn to tame the Statue of Liberty's unruly locks. On top of this training, Rain hosts weekly classes taught by industry professionals and the salon's own senior stylists to keep everyone's skills sharp. As part of the Bumble and bumble network, Rain carries the full line of high-end styling products, which complement the salon's boutique filled with trendy accessories from brands such as Toodlebunny and Lovers Tempo.
As something of a brand ambassador for Moroccanoil, Salon Yours includes a complimentary dose of their treatment oil in each salon service. For those seeking advanced therapy, stylists can also treat hair with specialized masks for dandruff or for damaged, fine, oily, or curly hair. But that's not all that's done here—behind a display of Moroccanoil's trademark turquoise bottles is a colour area where clients can get single-process colour or highlights. There are styling services, too, as well as cuts for men, women, and children, the latter of whom should have no problem sitting still as they watch cartoons on the flat-screens that hang beside each stylist's chair. In an effort to stay green, Salon Yours offers discounts to clients who bring in their old product bottles for refills.
Owner and makeup artist Van is very selective. At Ignite Hair & Beauty Lounge, she helms a staff made up solely of senior stylists, whose work has been displayed on the pages of Cinder and mentioned in Fresh Vancouver magazine. Using products from Davines and Kérastase, these accomplished hair experts revitalize clients' locks with deep-conditioning treatments, add drama with on-trend ombre and hand-painted balayage colour, and protect hair with Thermo-Cuts that use heat to seal the ends of strands after snips. Close to Van's heart, professional makeup services include airbrush foundation and Youngblood mineral cosmetics, which brighten bridal faces or gussy up skin to amaze on Halloween or scare kids into doing their homework.
