At 2 Polished Beauty, clients relax while beauty experts revamp their visages. A skin analysis helps estheticians customize facials that infuse skin with moisture, reduce excess oil, and clear pores of dirt and old party confetti. Waxing services remove unwanted fuzz from legs and faces. The salon?s stash of silk and faux mink eyelash extensions add volume and length to existing fringe, and remove the need for daily applications of mascara or unsightly eyelash wigs. Manicures and pedicures round out the pampering treatments, and include the choice of regular or chip-resistant gel polish.
Helmed by experienced aesthetician Nazia Bajwa, Beautyland Salon’s team of expertly trained pamperers restores radiance to weary visages via relaxing facial treatments and arch-ameliorating eyebrow-threading services. During the 45-minute European facial, complexions undergo thorough revamping that leaves skin looking as smooth and youthful as a newborn beach ball. The glow-inducing treatment whisks away dull, dry skin, leaving dewy cutaneous planes in its wake. Once smile machines have been streamlined, knowledgeable depilatory artists sculpt unkempt brows with a speedy threading service. Aestheticians meticulously lasso each individual strand with a cotton thread, harvesting hairs from their roots. Patrons grapevine out of appointments in possession of eyebrows so well-defined they draw admiring stares from passersby and other eyebrows going through their own identity crises.
At Posh Nail Lounge, a mani-pedi isn't just for making your nails shiny. It's also a kind of retreat where relaxation is top priority. First, a complimentary glass of wine?or another beverage of choice?helps clients settle in before they get into a massage chair and dunk their feet into a warm whirlpool soak. Next, the nail techs groom nails and cuticles and slough away rough patches. Nail technicians also go the extra mile with a sugar scrub exfoliation, hot towels, massage, and polish. Manicures give hands a treatment that's just as relaxing, with options for long-lasting Shellac polish or paraffin wax for additional skin hydration. Along with nail care, the team also offers laser hair removal, facials, permanent makeup, and brow and lash tinting.
At Ark Hair & Spa, beauticians infuse their slew of hair, massage, and nail services with Japanese flair. Therapists target pressure points to relieve aching muscles during shiatsu massages, and they alleviate stress caused by table phobias during Thai floor massages. During beauty-boosting treatments, staffers wield high-end products such as Calgel nail gel and antioxidant-rich Moroccanoil hair elixir. The studio’s decor speaks to the soothing power of simplicity, as clients relax among clean white walls and Japanese paper screens.
For E-style founder Eva Qin, it wasn't enough to open just any spa, but a spa as renowned for its treatments as it is for being a dedicated member of the world community. Clients come to the spa for waxing, mani-pedis, facials, and eyelash extensions, but leave feeling refreshed thanks to the in-depth service of the E-style crew of beauticians. Eva also makes it her job to give back, by partnering with the Canadian International Education Assistance Foundation and donating proceeds from her spa to train workers assisting in post-disaster communities.
As guests gaze into a gold-rimmed mirror, La Rouge Hair & Spa's team of stylists cut, color, and arrange tresses into elegant updos and large flavored pretzels. An experienced cutting crew of talented tress-handlers create fashionable looks for all of its clientele. In the salon, a chandelier hangs overhead as she performs a host of hair services such as color treatments done using products free of ammonia and other harmful chemicals.
