Jayni Chana realized her passion for beauty at a young age, when she watched in awe as her aunt transformed herself from “just rolled out of bed” to “ready to change the world.” As she grew older, she became known as the go-to beautician among her friends and family and even began practicing advanced techniques such as threading on herself. Jayni went on to gain experience and perspective as a model and beauty professional with a specialty in portfolio photography.
She stores all of this experience inside Jayni's Beauty Box, the spa in which she sculpts bridal hairdos and removes clingy flannel shirts with waxing treatments. Thanks to her early practice, Jayni has also become an expert at threading, a process that uses twisted cotton threads to grip hair and pull it out from the root.
The staff at Bijou Salon and Spa pampers its clients from head to foot with its menu of hair styling and spa services. In addition to cutting and styling manes, staffers also add polish to nails with spa manicures and pedicures.
Antoine Greige had a big year in 1987, when he established both his salon and his advanced training school, where the master stylist shares his expertise. A member of more than a dozen trade organizations and a world traveller, Antoine stays up to date on new styling trends that he and his staff bestow upon their clients. Their extensive styling menu includes everything from extensions to 12 types of perms, and aestheticians administer spa services such as mani-pedis and facials.
Absolute Chiropractic Wellness Centre's trained reflexology therapist and chiropractors foster the prevention of illness and aim to bolster overall health for clients of all ages. A reflexology expert applies pressure to key areas on the client's feet, hands, face, and stuck pickle jars, promoting increased relaxation and potentially rendering benefits such as more restful sleep. The 60-minute treatments can be administered to expectant mothers and can complement both natural and modern medicines.
Specializing in hair extensions made with 100-per-cent human hair, the stylists at Adeo Beauty master glue-free techniques that range from easily removable clip-in and clip-on extensions to long-lasting sewn locks. They can also apply micro ring extensions that bond to hair with small coils and protect the natural hair while it grows, much like how a kangaroo hides her children in her pouch until they can box. The stylists cut and colour manes with products from Moroccanoil and Schwarzkopf. In addition to hair on top of the head, the staff also removes facial hair with threading treatments that create clean lines and gentle eyebrow arches without hot wax.
