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.
Before starting his own salon, Char Le Blanc honed his styling skills in places around the world, including L'Or?al in Paris and Beirut and at a posh salon on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Today, at Char Le Blanc Salon & Spa, he shares his globe-spanning insights with his staff members, who all work together to beautify clients with manicures, massages, facials, and traditional haircare services.
Near the front entrance of the chandelier-lit, boutique space, a sleek black countertop displays laptops and tablets, all of which are available for guests who want to browse fashion blogs, check personal emails, or type words. The front entryway is also enchanted by the tranquility that often arises from pours of complimentary wine, champagne, martinis, and beer.
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.
Holistic wellness is infinitely faceted—from anxiety to weight fluctuations to signs of aging, people have a spectrum of personal health concerns. Fortunately for all, the savvy, versatile team at Oakville Spa and Wellness Centre is prepped to support clients with an array of med-spa services. Massage, acupuncture, and reflexology ease stress and support overall wellbeing, while aromatherapy facials, Shellac mani-pedis, and laser hair removal keep up appearances. But the centre's nonsurgical facelift epitomizes the fusion of wellness and spa services by tightening the skins without scars, injections, or the last wish from a lamp-bound genie.
The aestheticians at Pretty Woman Salon and Spa take a med-spa approach to pampering the hands and feet of both ladies and gentlemen. The mani-pedi begins as spa specialists compose a freestyle rap about each guest's name before offering coffee or tea, then lead the way to a two-chair pedicure room equipped with a private foot shower. Aestheticians assess nail health prior to placing paws and hooves into a softening Gehwol soak, prepping nails and cuticles for a meticulous grooming while leaving calluses defenseless against a contouring file. After talons get gussied up for a hand model audition, a combination scrub and massage showers attention on appendages, boosting circulation with 5–10 minutes of bodywork from foot to knee and hand to elbow. Upon hearing extremities purr, nail techs then apply OPI polish in a choice of colour and kitten-attraction rating. Those seeking more luxurious adornment may upgrade to a shellac treatment for an additional fee.
The first thing you notice when sitting down at Hair Chateau might be the romantic lighting or the modern stone fireplace in the middle of the styling room. After taking in the cozy and sleek surroundings, most clients sink in and relax as they talk to a team member about their hair, nail, or body-treatment needs. Stylists soothe scalps with aromatherapeutic massages before cutting and styling hair or adding sophisticated color, and mani-pedis beautify nails with shimmering Gelish polish. Waxing is also a big draw here, with services that remove any unwanted hair or tumbleweeds that have found a new home in the eyebrows.
