High ceilings, exposed pipework, and a pressed-tin ceiling lend Anim Hair & Beauty Studio an industrial feel, and colourful drapery and modern art warm up its stark beige walls. Specializing in extensions, weaves, braids, and relaxing treatments, the studio’s well-trained stylists sculpt hairdos that attract the admiration of passers-by and hair-scaling princes alike. Each staff member completes an in-house apprenticeship and extensive four-week training course before unleashing his or her pampering prowess via salon services, spa treatments, and hair-removal sessions.
Sandy's Esthetics and Day Spa meticulously grooms the body?s exterior through nailcare, waxing, and skincare, and their menu of hot-stone and relaxing massages gently tends to interior aches. Soft music drifts throughout the day spa while clients unwind during treatments or peruse products to use on their life-size dolls at home.
Atomic Hair Studio transforms tresses in a relaxing and modern Redken Premier salon. An experienced team of professional stylists utilize industry knowledge and snipping innovation to make client's mane visions a reality, including crafting flowing layers, hip bobs, and follicular models of Niagara Falls. After a three-pronged Redken conditioning attack, ladies can opt to put their locks in the trusty hands of a level-one or level-four stylist, and gents harmonize to the tune of a humming razor after a soothing scalp massage.
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.
With dramatic chandeliers, sweeping curves of dark wood, and full-length mirrors, Telio Hair Studio doesn’t look like a barbershop. But it still aims to make men feel comfortable getting a precision haircut—or, for that matter, a scalp massage, sports pedicure, or other treatment from a full list of men’s services. Even in the midst of luxurious spa services, such as aromatic plant-based facials and toning anti-aging treatments, staff maintain a welcoming atmosphere toward all guests, giving trims to even the tiniest tots who aren’t losing their baby hair quickly enough. In addition to its home base in a North Vancouver bungalow, the studio recently opened a second location just down the road from the Sperling SkyTrain station in Burnaby.
Instead of featuring pristine white washbasins and shelves of flowery shampoos, the dude-centric space at Team Clips Hair Cuts is filled with pro jerseys mounted to the walls, a cooler stocked with soft drinks, and PS3 games available to guests while they wait. Standing atop a floor painted like a football field, stylists perform swift and simple haircuts, sweetening these standard services with add-ons such as a hot towel, beard trimming, or gentle scalp massage. Guests can keep one eye on the mirror, one eye on an HDTV airing sports in front of their chair, and one eye in their pocket to keep as a spare. Though primarily geared toward men, Team Clips also offers snips for children and cuts and styling services for women.
