At the ultra chic Fifth Avenue Boutique Salon & Spa, crystal chandeliers dangle from the lofted ceiling and styling stations boast white salon chairs and giant mirrors surrounded by thick black frames. Besides the occasional plant and the green throw pillows on the couch in the waiting area, the only vivid color in the black-and-white salon is on the heads of clients, who sport bright red and chestnut hues.
The stylists here also create more subtle looks, including ombre color, as well as chop off split ends, twist locks into pretty updos, and apply hair-smoothing keratin treatments.
Additionally, the full-service beauty center offers nail and massage treatments, plus a wide range of exfoliating skincare treatments, everything from microdermabrasion to a pumpkin peel that is almost as good at infusing the skin with vitamins as wearing a jack-o'-lantern over your head.
The aestheticians and registered massage therapists at Natural Sense Wellness pamper their clients from head to toe with a full menu of luxurious spa services. From decadent one-hour foot massages to specialized eye treatments, the roster of indulgences leaves no part of the body out. Waxing sessions whisk away unwanted hair from legs, underarms, and thoraxes, whereas threading neatly zips strands away from brows, cheeks, and upper lips. To help them in their beautification and relaxation efforts, the aestheticians rely on European products from brands such as Guinot, Sothys, and Jean D'Arcel Cosmetique.
Spending a day in the care of Lido's trained staff can result in a head-to-toe transformation: stylists tackle coifs, nail technicians make over fingers and toes, and aestheticians set skin aglow with facials. Eyebrows alone can be treated to a variety of services: a choice of waxing or threading helps them look alluringly curvy, and tinting adds subtle colour. Aromatherapy massages pamper noses and muscles alike, and candling clears ears without the need for snorkelling in a pool of ginger ale.
The specialists at Yarelis Home Spa believe that everyone can benefit from professional skincare treatments— from glamorous celebrities to busy moms to growing teenagers. Armed with Dermalogica botanicals, essential oils, and antioxidants, the skincare technicians rejuvenate and protect skin with an array of facial and body treatments. They also pamper their clients with luxurious spa manicures and pedicures, complete with massages and exfoliation treatments.
Since 1993, the instructors at Toronto School of Aesthetics Uptown have transformed their students into certified aestheticians, ready to work at a salon or start their own. The school's certifications cover the full range of aesthetic treatments, teaching students how to perm eyelashes, apply makeup, and brighten faces with custom skin care treatments more effective than replacing eyebrows with strands of holiday lights.
At Girls & Guys Salon and Spa, a team of experienced hairdressers and technicians treat customers with a full suite of pampering beauty services. Treatments include haircuts, color services, facials, microdermabrasion, manicures, and laser hair removal.
