Kate Lee and Amy Yang founded IN Beauty MedSpa with the ambition to meld Eastern philosophy with Western technology. The clinic's specialists intertwine inner and outer beauty during spa services that range from facials and massages to waxing and manicures that polish the spirit's fingernails. On-site dieticians and physicians tailor individualized plans for healthy eating, exercising, and ascertaining the number of jellybeans it takes to get a stomachache.
Lee and Yang jet-set to anti-aging conferences around the world. They continually incorporate new cosmetic technologies such as the Alpha LED light spa, which uses dry heat, oxygen therapy, and near-infrared light to improve blood flow and stimulate metabolic processes. Other medically supervised treatments include focused radiofrequency sessions, which tighten and firm the body.
Though the stylists at Verve Hair Design each bring their own flair to the salon, they begin each appointment in the same way: with a consultation. Afterward, they get to work turning clients’ visions into reality, whether they seek a cut and style, highlights, hair extensions, or a permanent straightening treatment. The stylists supplement each session with natural products from brands such as L’Oréal, Schwarzkopf, and Moroccanoil, making hair stronger and more beautiful than the queen of bodybuilder prom.
Among peach-coloured walls dappled with gleaming mirrors, Eden Salon and Spa’s crew of affable coiffeurs—many of whom bring upward of 20 years of salon experience to their styling stations—breathe new life into men’s and women’s wilted tresses via pampering treatments. The staff’s dedication to fostering a warm and friendly environment is evidenced in the attention they lavish upon patrons from the moment they arrive, proffering soul-warming coffee and tea as they whisk burdensome jackets out of guests’ arms to facilitate an unencumbered salon-wide group hug of welcome. Stylists engage in friendly banter with their clients as they snip and style hair, and sage colourists swap out strand shades with vibrant colouring services such as full highlights.
Before Sherry Subratii opened Expo Hair Studio & Salon Care, she apprenticed under Guy Lucci and trained at both the Marvel Beauty School and the Schwarzkopf Academy. She draws on her 15 years of experience as she gives guidance to a team of stylists and reshapes hairscapes with cuts, colour treatments, and other services. Perms send waves through tresses, and Japanese straightening treatments work some of the kinks out of frizzy coiffures. When makeup artists and aestheticians aren't busy pampering guests with spa packages, massages, waxing, and mani-pedis, they beautify brides before they roller skate gracefully down the aisle.
The seasoned stylists at Follicle Hair Salon & Spa can cater to almost any beauty request. Standing before black-and-white chairs, they clip chic haircuts, then steep strands in rich colour or smooth them with keratin. They embellish nails with organic acrylic gel that lasts far longer than traditional polish, and smooth away fine lines or persistent smirks with microdermabrasion. Aromatherapy massages leave patrons relaxed, completing the spa experience.
At Swing & Sway, a team of professional dance instructors imparts ballroom and Latin dance skills in classes focused on steps and variations rather than strict routines. After picking up a vocabulary of salsa, merengue, bachata, cha cha cha, rumba, and samba steps in one of the studio’s daily classes, students are free to try out their moves at weekend dance parties, hosted at the studio.
