There aren't many spots where you can get a hot-towel straight-razor shave and some feather extensions. At Bourbon & Lace, however, barber Denise Askin pampers guests with a unique array of men's and women's services. Thanks to her experience in an upscale barbershop, Denise tackles facial hair with old-school panache and uses only the finest Jack Black products, which do their part to moisturize skin and deter any embarrassing Home Alone?style screaming. Denise also cuts, buzzes, and fades hair on men and boys, from newborns to teens.
On the salon side, Denise eschews razors for wax on women's faces. In addition to hair removal, she offers cuts and blow-dries for girls and women, and administers colour, highlights, and dramatic updos for special occasions.
Behind the reception area’s glossy white desk, sleek black styling stations buzz with the whirring of dryers and snipping of scissors. So begins a typical visit to Gossip & Co. Tanning and Hair Studio, wherein a team of stylists and aestheticians prove their dedication to gussying up patrons with services ranging from long-lasting Shellac manicures to meticulous waxing treatments. Within the studio’s slate gray walls, the styling team assembles strands into sleek updos, revives lacklustre locks with conditioning treatments, and installs voluminous hair extensions. A fleet of tanning beds housed within private rooms gilds bodies in bronze shades of varying intensity and grant the appearance of having just returned from vacation without the hassles of bribing clouds to scram.
When you get a European facial at Acqua Organic Day Spa, you're actually getting a European facial. The spa sources its organic skincare products from France and Italy, going to great lengths to find formulas that promote a vibrant complexion. But skincare is only one of the highlights at this Burnaby spa. The others include soothing pedicures and Shellac manicures that protect nails during daily tasks such as scratching lotto tickets and hand-feeding your pet piranha.
The skilled stylists at New In Style Hair & Beauty Salon can engineer new cuts and color to flatter faces, but that's just one hair in their ample coif.

The salon also features several hair-removal techniques, such as waxing, threading, and reverse psychology, which dares the hair to grow faster.
Whether by the manual artistry of a stylist and her scissors or the high-tech energy pulses of the i-Lipo device, the goal at Glamorous Beauty Salon's is always the same?to help clients achieve their image goals. In business for more than 12 years, Glamorous Beauty Salon staffs employees trained to do just that. Take the hairstylists, who craft new and trendy hairdos with cuts, coloring, and conditioning treatments. Take the aestheticians and technicians that help rekindle complexions with herbal facials and eyebrow threading. Then you have nail technicians and makeup artists to fill in the finer points of the body, and massage therapists, who lather muscles in pure essential oils before plying them until they're as a piece of taffy left in the microwave too long.
Glamorous also offers the option for more advanced beauty treatments by way of laser technology. The iLipo treatment, for instance, uses laser energy to break down fat cells and encourage inch loss, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that means no hospital stay or recovery time.
