Beauty doesn?t have to cause collateral damage. Knowing this, Kast Hair Studio?s staff performs haircuts, colour treatments, and styling consultations with a complete line of naturally derived hair products. As an Aveda concept salon, it remains committed to environmentally responsible production, using products crafted with pure flower and plant essences sourced from sustainable communities. To obtain hair-nourishing argan oil, Aveda reaches out to cooperatives in southeast Morocco, and for Australian sandalwood, Aveda consults indigenous harvesters. Once the Aveda team has convinced the ingredients to get along, it ships or catapults the bottles to salons such as Kast Hair Studio to be used in updos, haircuts, and deep-conditioning treatments.
Seven hairstylists, two aestheticians, and three makeup artists join forces inside From Hair On to transform appearances with treatments that are skin deep. Co-manager and aesthetician Maryam is also a certified laser technician and draws from 15 years of experience to zap away unwanted hairs, vascular lesions, scars, and other skin imperfections. As stylists help tresses adopt a new texture with perms or deep-conditioning treatments, nail techs fortify pointers with artificial sets made from gel or acrylic, and microdermabrasion treatments gently freshen faces by sweeping away tired cells to reveal the brighter, younger, more tech savvy skin hiding just underneath.
At il Destino Salon and Spa, experienced skin therapists revamp and revivify patrons' delicate outer coverings using quality products and tender, conscientious care. The spa's T-Zone facial targets the oil-prone areas of customers' mugs—foreheads, noses, and chin fossil fuel deposits—with a customized treatment designed to cleanse and refresh. Post skin analysis, faces undergo a thorough scrubbing to remove grease and grit. An influx of steam, pore extractions, and a slathering of moisturizer leave sensory switchboards fresh, balanced, and ready to kiss the foreheads of local politicians. Skin technicians at il Destino strive to educate their customers so that they can care properly for their skin every day, not just when inside the salon's sleek, Asian-inspired interior. Users of this Groupon receive a $10 discount on any Dermalogica or Clean Start product they purchase during their visit.
For more than 20 years, Exquisite Beauty, Hair and Spa has been growing more cosmopolitan with its array of grooming services. These days, this full-service salon and spa is one of the only beauty spots in BC to feature the entire line of TIGI products, and the team of experienced and licensed stylists specialize in fashion-forward cuts and rich, healthy-looking color. Along with hair services, Exquisite Beauty offers spa services such as facials, spa mani-pedis, and waxing. Come in for a full set of lash extensions, or have a relaxing full-body scrub or an anti-aging microdermabrasion session. The friendly, professional beauty staff and casually upscale vibe make this salon and spa a welcoming place to get pampered and forget the stress of dealing with an abacus at the gas pump.
For the aestheticians and therapists at Refresh Salon and Spa, internal and external wellness are two sides of the same coin?and both sides are worth polishing. They provide skincare, professional make-up services, massages, and hair styling, all in an environment designed to promote a peaceful, happy state of mind. Some services treat both body and mind at once, the most obvious?though not only?example being massage. Other such treatments include the organic facial, which soothes skin with a list of naturally derived ingredients that also supply peace of mind. Then there's the cucumber mint body polish, an exfoliation treatment that, like a job in a lettuce mine, leaves the lingering scent of fresh greens on the body.
Clients at Shine Hair Lounge can count on a soothing experience: every cut and blow-dry begins with a complimentary head, shoulder, and neck massage. For colour, the stylists use Aveda’s professional colouring systems, which rely on naturally derived products to create a wide range of customizable shades that infuse locks with vibrant hues.
