The welcoming atmosphere at Hair Body & Soul Studio and Spa seems to seep straight from the walls of the repurposed house where it resides. Friendly staff members usher patrons into cozy confines replete with a fireplace, antique furniture, complimentary fresh coffee and herbal teas, and a neighbour kid who regularly stops by to raid the refrigerator. In these warm environs, patrons entrust their skin and hair to a team of hairstylists and aestheticians who hone their own specialties to ensure clients can always find an able pair of hands to meet any head-to-toe pampering needs. Hair stylists take their shearing and tinting work seriously, and take care to consult with clients at length about their hair type and home styling habits before launching into a maintenance cut or full-blown makeover. A skilled aesthetician meticulously analyzes faces before pursuing an avenue of skin treatment, which can include custom-tailored facials, exfoliating diamond microdermabrasion, and fruit enzyme peels that make skin as smooth as a politician on ice skates. Stressed guests can enjoy a full-body massage, or watch as a nail technician trims and neatens fingertips to a satisfying uniformity.:m]]
When self-described “holistic nutritionist and healthy-life enthusiast” Barbara Baumann began travelling to health retreats and spas around the world, she was dismayed to find that very few aestheticians actually rely on natural products in their treatments. Baumann took it upon herself to study European spa practices, earning a degree in Clinical Nutrition and Detoxification and using her newfound skillset to found The Holistic Body Boutique. As its name implies, Baumann’s boutique combines her passion for aesthetics with her keen appreciation for natural, holistic healing.
Today, detoxifying treatments and nutritional weight-loss programs dominate the spa’s service menu. All-natural facials, massage, and body-contouring treatments eschew preservatives and harmful additives in favour of organic ingredients that aestheticians custom-blend and apply with free-range loofahs.
A talented artist skilled in drawing and painting, Michelle's Everlasting Beauty’s owner and namesake Michelle Le merged her passion for visual art with her love of cosmetics to build her own studio. She set up shop with a vast menu of services that groom faces, bodies, and nails into eye-catching assets. Dedicated to upholding her rigorous standards of customer service while fostering a warm, welcoming atmosphere, Michelle bustles about the spa’s chic partitions and elegant wood floors to check in on guests and ensure their comfort throughout their service. Her artistic prowess is evident as her steady hand gilds visages with the spa’s signature semi-permanent makeup or embellishes nails with long-lasting shellac polish, which resists chipping from everyday wear and frequent chalkboard solos.
