The technicians at National Laser Therapy Clinics of Canada use modern technology to wipe out unhealthy cravings, unwanted body hair, and unloved tattoos. By applying low-level lasers to acupressure points on the ears, hands, or feet, they help stimulate the release of addiction-crushing endorphins. These treatments have helped clients give up tobacco, alcohol, and bad eating habits without the risks of cigarettes coated in cayenne pepper or pharmaceuticals. Hair-removal and tattoo-removal services harness laser power to stop hair in its active-growth phase or break down unwanted ink.

When beautifying the heads and bodies of his clientele, Yetmir Keqa of Salon Yetmir draws from eastern European roots, an apprenticeship at James Brett Coiffure, and a natural stockpile of dry wit and sincerity that helps to ease minds. During hair services for men, women, and youth, Mr. Keqa caters to his subjects' personalities and penchants for auditioning for shampoo commercials, using products by Davines and colour infused with milk protein. Facials and massages soothe away stress and brighten countenances, and mani-pedis leave extremities ready for first-impression handshakes. While clients admire glossy black treatment chairs and full-length, thick-bordered mirrors, they sip a complimentary macchiato that lightens the mood and keeps hair awake long enough to say goodbye to its split ends.
The stylists at Trendsetter Hair Clinic are just as confident weaving in blonde extensions as they are braiding hair into cornrows or sweeping strands into elegant updos. Their lineup of haircare services covers cuts, colouring, and texturizing treatments. It's all part of owner Paluette Guelph's vision to not only pamper healthy hair, but to rehabilitate manes coping with hair loss or strands damaged by breakage or chemicals.
The clinic is stocked with products from brands such as Arosci and Redken, as well as wigs that range from natural looking to vibrantly coloured. Staff members can make house calls with an array of wig options for those who feel more comfortable wig-shopping in the comforts of home or are looking to outfit their garden gargoyle with strawberry-blond ringlets.
