The stylists at Razors Edge Salon lend their services to women and men of all ages and cultivate a friendly atmosphere amid modern, black and white graphic murals. At styling stations, they trim unruly locks and correct colour before clients grab products from brands such as Bed Head, AG Hair Cosmetics, and American Crew on their way to the register. The staff also coats nails in new shades and decorative patterns, waxes away unwanted body hair, and extends lash lines to give clients more alluring winks and the ability to replace faulty window fans by blinking rapidly.
Equipped with Bumble and bumble and OPI products, the skilled staff at Vixen Hair Studio transform dishevelled mop-tops into stylish new manes, ragged nails into polished ovals, and furry brows into sleek arches. Upon arrival, a beauty expert consults with clients to plan the hair services and skincare treatments they require based on their desired look or need to find work as a clown's body-double. The in-house aestheticians flaunt their years of training in soothing mani-pedis, eye-opening lash tints and extensions, airbrush tanning, and makeup applications. They also remove unwanted hair with traditional waxing and through the ancient art of threading, a centuries-old technique that uses loops of cotton thread to remove hair more gently and efficiently than with other methods.

Quick Stop Hair Shop's experienced stylists spiff up 'dos with speedy and professional hair styling services for men, women, and children. After a brief consultation to determine the hair's innermost yearnings, one of Quickstop's mane shamans will begin to snip, dye, and charm even the most distraught bristles, frizz, and Medusa head-snakes. Women can opt to accessorize new haircuts with a colouring treatment for hair as black as onyx, as red as fire, or as chestnut as a squirrel's lunch.
The stylists at Lavish Salon use Kevin.Murphy and John Masters Organics products during hair services and aesthetics that bolster and maintain natural beauty. They add texture with cuts and colouring treatments and rehydrate hair with conditioning treatments. Stylists also remove unwanted hair with waxing and groom fingers during manicures.
Twist's trained stylists revivify locks and phalanages via a hair- and nail-taming menu of services. Haircuts sculpt silhouettes into new and interesting shapes ($40–$60 for women, $30 and up for men), and simple styling coddles malnourished locks with love and high-quality products ($35 and up). Mimic the pelage colourings of a celebrity doppelganger or celebrity spirit animal with selective highlights ($65 and up) or a full colour ($60 and up). Ragged talons become spellbinding fashion claws with a basic manicure ($30) or full mani-pedi ($80), and unwelcome fuzzies vanish during wax evictions on the upper lip ($8) and eyebrows ($15).
Though most people don’t associate scissors, needles, and popcorn with one another, all three play a big part in Design House Salon’s continuing allure. The salon’s owners, Chantelle Pasychny and Kurtis Brown, blend their passions for hairstyling and acupuncture in a menu of spa services designed to promote well-being from the inside out. Along with their beautifying hair treatments and chi-balancing acupuncture sessions, they nourish bodies with munch-ready popcorn that they purchase from the nearby Kernels Popcorn store.
When they aren’t snacking or counting how many popped kernels fit in a jar of Barbicide, clients can tune in to the wall-mounted television or admire the decor’s minimalistic theme. Nestled inside the historic Hudson Building, the salon goes for an industrial-chic look that incorporates the structure's original concrete pillars and reclaimed pieces of wood.
