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.
The experienced stylists and beauty technicians at Preet Hair, Nail and Beauty Salon believe their personalized approach to each of their customers is the reason they have so many repeat clients. Within their chic salon with dark, nearly black walls, hardwood floors, and twinkly lights, skilled hands colour, cut, and style strands or thread and wax away unwanted facial hair. They also de-gunk pores with facials and create long-lasting manicures with gel and acrylic nails. No matter what service they perform, the beauty professionals carefully consult with clients to understand exactly what the hoped-for end result is and exactly which prime minister the client hopes to look like.
Monita Chan has been training aspiring cosmetologists for more than two decades, instructing them in everything from creative haircut techniques to special-effects makeup application. At BM Chan—a cosmetology training academy that's also a full-service salon—she captains her team of beauty experts that includes stylists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists
When she and her team aren't leading classes in aromatherapy or medical aesthetics, they're giving their salon clients luxurious breaks from their busy lives. They even pull hair styling techniques from Vidal Sassoon and Pivot Point to create their looks for both special events as well as entirely unremarkable events.
The colours of choice at the beauty lounge are black and white—at least when it comes to decor. But past the plush black sofa and black-and-white art prints, the stylists pull from a far more colourful palette. They turn out vibrant red coifs during colour treatments and paint nails in warm or summery hues. And in addition to clearing skin of unwanted hair, the team enhances it with complementary blushes, liners, and lipsticks.
Though the stylists at The Red Room Hair And Spa can style hair with a full spectrum of colors, it?s clear which is their favorite. Their salon?s most striking feature is its scarlet interior, whose drama is only heightened by the glow that emanates from a crystal chandelier overhead. Such a setting might draw attention away from a staff of lesser calibre, but it fails to outshine their precision hair services and spa treatments that cleanse the body of hair, dead cells, and clingy turtlenecks.
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.
