Monita Chan has been training aspiring cosmetologists for more than two decades, instructing them in everything from creative haircut techniques to special-effects makeup application. At BM Chan—a cosmetology training academy that's also a full-service salon—she captains her team of beauty experts that includes stylists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists

When she and her team aren't leading classes in aromatherapy or medical aesthetics, they're giving their salon clients luxurious breaks from their busy lives. They even pull hair styling techniques from Vidal Sassoon and Pivot Point to create their looks for both special events as well as entirely unremarkable events.

When Cecil B. Spa & Laser opened in 1979, it was a makeup studio—origins the team continues to honor to this day. Despite how much the salon has grown, mineral makeup lessons with Jane Iredale cosmetics remain one of the team's touchstones. During a typical session, makeup artists guide clients step by step through creating flattering custom looks that include natural lips or smoky eyes that require no matches.

Today the spa branches out far beyond makeup with a host of wellness and beauty treatments. The spa utilizes the Italian wax Comfort Zone, which promotes slower and finer hair growth. Massages, for example, range from classic Swedish kneads to Western Thai massage, a mix of pressure point work and stretching. Laser beauty services, meanwhile, include laser hair removal and a cocktail of laser treatments designed to nonsurgically produce the look of a facelift.

The last time 300 different colours were located in the same place, Walt Disney animators were drawing Fantasia. Whether presenting more than 300 nail-polish hues or a diverse slate of beauty services, Seymour Nail & Spa gives its clientele plenty of choices for bringing their appearances to life. And the salon itself is filled with vivid colour: two tones of bright purple paint saturate the walls, but fortunately not the large flat-screen TVs mounted on them.

Aside from mani-pedis that spruce up and soften hands and feet, the nail salon adds length to natural nails with applications of acrylic, solar, or gel nails. The nail spa staff can also enhance hand and foot treatments with an exfoliating sea-salt scrub or dip extremities in warm paraffin wax to help prevent fungus and hydrate the skin. They can even bring out beauty in eyes by applying eyelash extensions, which create dramatic lashes with curved, synthetic fibres.
