Judy Olmstead, a certified beautician of more than 30 years, partnered with fellow stylist Marlene to fulfill a dream: to offer hairstyling and aesthetic services in an environment that celebrates beauty. Today, The Garage Hair Studio and Esthetics Salon employs a certified staff of five stylists and one aesthetician. As stylists create customized looks with haircuts, colouring, and texturing treatments, aesthetician Leanne soothes skin with facials and performs expert face and body waxing. Gel and Gelish manicures and pedicures bedazzle fingers and toes, and massage therapy helps clients unwind and relax.
To help customers maintain their hairstyles or tame cowlicks in their shag carpets, the salon carries botanical-rich products from Kevin Murphy and smoothing conditioners from Moroccanoil. Services feature the salon’s exclusive Natural Concepts products.
K1-8 Hair and Aesthetics, selected as a top spa in 2012 by the Penticton Western News invites both male and female clients to step across its black-and-white checkered floor where stylish hairdos are created daily. Inside the clean and modern salon, staff members gussy up coifs on men, women, and fuzzy mannequins with a variety of hair services. Whether delivering a cut, colour, or style, the crew works closely with each guest to customize his or her ideal look.
D Tan Sunlight Centre cultivates bronzed bods under the watchful eye of master certified technicians and state-of-the-art equipment. Fitness equipment and a multitude of aesthetic alternatives bedeck the centre, making its scope broader than a standard tanning salon but less hazardous than on-sun treadmills. Carbon heating elements combine to release toxins in a relaxing sweatfest in infrared Dynamic Saunas, fit for three people.
Natural Beauty Salon & Spa?s eight stylists pamper their clients with custom cuts and colours, working in tandem with a specialized team of aestheticians and laser technicians. The technicians wield Chromogenex?s Phaser EPL machine, whose beams can permanently reduce unwanted hair, rejuvenate skin, or combat acne. For more hands-on treatments, aestheticians can massage aching muscles, manicure nails, and add glittery accessories to smiles without bedazzling old retainers. Visitors can complement their new looks with finds from the salon?s shelves of accessories, which spotlight purses, scarves, and statement jewellery.
Kelowna Lash and Laser enhances appearances in a full-scale salon-spa with peels and microdermabrasion facials, mink lash extensions, waxing, and IPL laser hair-removal treatments. The owner, Coral—a certified laser technician, certified eyelash extensionist, and trainer—specializes in anti-aging skincare and revamps visages with photorejuvenation facials and radio-frequency skin treatments that reduce cellulite and leave surfaces firmer than the government's stance on anti-gravity rights. Kelowna Lash and Laser sells and uses Cellex-C Skin Care Professional Products.
Serenity Aesthetics Laser & Advanced Skin Care helps both men and women beautify their bodies. Certified laser technicians and aestheticians Janice Lawson and Jessica Wenger administer prettifying facial treatments and wield GentleLase laser hair-removal devices to help women oust fuzz from bikini areas and help men groom their shoulder blades' sideburns.
