At iConic Nail & Spa, trained and experienced technicians use sterilized and sealed instruments to tend to nails, body hair, and skin. Manicures and pedicures adorn fingers and toes with colorful polish, coupled with exfoliation and ingredients such as fruit, peppermint, or green tea. Swedish and hot-stone massages soothe muscles, and hot waxes remove unwanted hair from areas such as the eyebrows, the chin, or the legs.
The team at Beny’s Hair Salon respects individuality. Instead of crafting carbon copies of a popular style, they tailor services to bring out each client's natural beauty, whether through artful haircuts, expert waxing, or colorful manicures. Before the bold, black frames of stylist mirrors, the specialists imbue languid locks with vibrant highlights and snap unruly strands into place with the long-lasting strength of keratin smoothing treatments. Meanwhile, an array of wigs crown heads with styleable and dyeable materials, creating the ideal option for an instant fashion transformation or for turning floor lamps into enchanting dance partners.
With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers flit imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.
The staff members at Blush & Glow Day Spa protect clients from the stresses of the outside world with a shield of relaxing treatments, including massages, facials, and nail services. Green bamboo, a yellow wall, and orange pendant lamps lend a cheerful vibe to the reception area, putting clients at ease before they head to a waxing or laser hair-removal session to prep for beach time or to a sugar-scrub session that brightens skin and lures ponies. Inside the salon area, stylists cut and color hair or smooth frizz with Brazilian keratin treatments, and nail technicians dip hands and feet in warm paraffin before applying coats of OPI polish.
