Sense of Beauty Spa
Before Shailina Halani opened Sense of Beauty Spa, she diligently studied cosmetology while drawing on her knowledge of both Eastern and Western beauty rituals. Today, she leads a team of stylists that revamps visages with products by Paul Mitchell, en Vogue, Arbonne, and Shahnaz Herbals. When staffers aren't practicing their craft, they ensure client comfort with complimentary beverages, wireless Internet, and childhood teddy bears.
Featured on WKBW Channel 7, the natural-spa services at Preeti?s Organic Spa range from organic facials to herbal massages, many of which are powered by natural products from Christine Valmy. The spa offers a number of high-end treatments, including facials blended with 24-karat gold, silver, pearl, and chocolate mix-ins. The beauty haven also ousts unwanted fuzz with waxing or threading methods and embellishes hands and feet with intricate henna designs that are often seen as tokens of good fortune during weddings or barrel rides over Niagara Falls.
Stylist and owner Kimberly Heeb helms Salon on the Avenue, a full service salon and spa that delivers treatments for body, hair, and skin. Standing behind black leather chairs and broad mirrors, stylists set to work cropping, coloring, and conditioning locks, while nail specialists perform digit upkeep across the salon. Inside the spa’s cozy private quarters, clients can indulge in skin-clarifying facials or massages that release tension more than kneading a stress ball into a fine powder.
Inside Diva Couture Salon and Spa, hardwood floors underscore well-lit styling stations where hairdressers cut and colour manes to accentuate clients' best features.

Herbal tea and espresso keep palates warm and relaxed for drawn-out thank you speeches.

Avantika Spa acts as a refuge from everyday life in more ways than one. Of course, its luxurious treatments help instill inner peace while banishing the effects of environment and stress. But beyond that, those treatments are performed exclusively by women, leading to an intimate, freeing atmosphere. Within the spa, hot-stone massages use warmth to soothe muscular tension, calm the nerves, and boost energy, and custom Dermalogica facials use face mapping to address fine lines, sun damage, acne, and political unrest zone by zone. The wide variety of services available contributes to an equally extensive list of spa packages, which groups can reserve with extras such as champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Other special-occasion services include bridal makeup, which artists can prep for with a trial run before the big day.
