Among stone walls bathed in the glow of blue lights, NewU Body Bar's talented aestheticians and nail technicians put their collective goal of pampering patrons into practice as they lavish signature spa treatments upon weary bodies. Throughout the day, staffers buzz about the marble-topped nail bar and private massage rooms while erasing coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins in teeth-whitening sessions. Skilled in both traditional beautification and unique services, the spa technicians administer mouthwatering treatments including ice-cream-sundae manicures and mimosa facials. To further bolster NewU’s atmosphere of serenity, a fleet of white leather couches enables guests to rest their feet and practice telepathically changing the channel on the spa’s flat-screen TVs.
Esthetique Facial Angle Ltée's experienced aestheticians pluck, wax, and shoo away unwanted facial hairs with an expertise accumulated over the studio’s more than 20 years of business. Lay off unruly brow bits that stand in the way of first-impression finesse and proper eyeshadow application with the tough-love tug of warm wax, which leaves skin surfaces with less hair than a balding dragon. The viscous glaze continues to work its smoothing witchcraft on pesky and persistent upper-lip fuzz. Once your countenance is as aerodynamic as a flying water slide, you'll get 25% off any France Laure or Clayton Shagal skincare products purchased during your visit.
The first thing you notice upon entering KandyBar Spa—after taking in the serene environment and friendly banter of staffers chatting with clients—is what you don’t notice. Namely, the distinct lack of chemical aromas that are inherent in many other nail boutiques. Champions of acrylic-free nail polish, the skilled crew of nail technicians eschews harsh ingredients for gentler alternatives, ensuring that guests and their noses can engage in unfettered relaxation throughout their visit. At any time of day, the spa's cadre of aestheticians can be found bustling about its pink and black interior, restoring radiance with nourishing facials or whisking away unwanted body hair with a host of waxing services. Though excelling in spa treatments, the staff’s specialty lies in their meticulous nail services that incorporate decadent elements such as sugar scrubs and a footbath infused with milk chocolate and Oompa Loompa tears. As further proof of their dedication to patron well-being, the highly trained staff adheres to rigorous safety and sanitary standards, such as using disposable pedicure bowl liners.
At Foilhead, all beauty services begin with a consultation, meaning any treatment will be done strictly on the client's terms. The modern salon's staff certainly possess the skills to accommodate just about any styling wish. A team of master hairstylists draws from more than 30 years of experience to refurbish hair with layered cuts, foil highlights, and rich colour. A seasoned nail technician, meanwhile, applies sculpted porcelain and fibreglass nails. Alternatively, a European-trained aesthetician uses Laboratoire Dr. Renaud skincare products to design customized deep-cleansing facials and pamper clients' skin according to individual needs.
At The Ottawa Academy, aspiring stylists and aestheticians gain hands-on experience by administering spa and salon services to real clients. Although these services are performed by students, clients shouldn't expect second-rate work. Each haircut, bikini wax, facial, and sea-salt-glow body wrap is carried out under the critical eye of a seasoned faculty member, ensuring clients emerge relaxed and beautified.
Indulgence is the name of the game at Serine Salon & Spa, where the staff goes beyond hair styling and facials to beautify and cosset entire bodies. From bridal hair and makeup to threading and laser hair removal, the aestheticians and stylists customize each treatment to the individual client.
