Licensed cosmetologist Kimberly Salt has refined her pampering skills for more than 20 years. These days, at Kimberlily Creek, she showcases her talents by beautifying and relaxing customers with light-stylings and spa-style treatments, including facial waxing, Reiki massage, and her Natural Manicures. In addition to bundling these services to ready brides for their big day, Kimberly doubles as an ordained minister, and happily officiates ceremonies with pre-written or customized vows and scripts. Besides nuptials, Kimberly hosts plenty all-female parties for Pure Romance, an adult-oriented shop that supplies women with everything from lingerie to soothing lotions.
Founded in 1974 in Memphis, Tennessee, by the eponymous Sam Ross, Fantastic Sams is a family-friendly salon geared toward quality. Today, the brand spans more than 1,200 locations, employing a legion of experienced stylists as they wage wars on bedhead and uneven bangs. Wielding shampoos and conditioners crafted with provitamins and soy proteins, the staff offers services such as haircuts, color treatments, and straightening treatments.
It isn?t just the bride-to-be at the appointment inside Island Hair Studio. She's brought along an entire squad of bridesmaids, who giddily snap pictures as the stylist twirls their friend's hair into cascading curls, pins up a few sections, and tops it all off with a bedazzled headband. The party leaves in a cloud of giggles and cartoon hearts, and the stylist welcomes her next client in need of a cut and color touch-up. Feet away, another customer holds her hands steady as a nail technician paints all ten digits in a bright pink polish.
Since 1992, the experienced stylists and aestheticians at Pro Image have clipped manes into stylish new shapes and pampered skin and nails. Overhauling style from top to bottom, staff can apply Novalash eyelash extensions, wax away unsightly hairs, or neatly apply polish to finely shaped nails.
When the nearby Fallsview Casino caught on to Vincent Petti’s talents, developed over his more than 35 years in the beauty industry, its staff started having him come and do hair for visiting celebrities. To date, his star clientele has included Olivia Newton-John, Michael Bublé, Emily Blunt, and Andrea Bocelli, among others. But Vincent and his team don't reserve star treatment for stage-bound clients. They transform everyday looks with flattering cuts and colours, as well as add modelesque glam with hair extensions. The staff also includes makeup artists—integral contributors to the salon's wedding-day services—as well as nail technicians who ready hands and feet for televised toe-touching competitions.
The stylists at Hair Resistable Salon have only one goal: to help clients look and feel their best. To accomplish this, they nourish strands with healing L’anza products and craft modern styles with Design Essentials serums. In addition to adorning hair with highlights, braids, and weaves, the staff can add a coat of polish to digits and whisk away unwanted facial hair.
