Hot yoga takes the flexy-bendy powers of Hatha yoga techniques and plants them firmly within the heated confines of a 95- to 110-degree studio. The heat encourages muscles to stretch to their fullest potential, allowing a greater range of movement in the joints, muscles, ligaments, and fingernails, the stodgiest and least flexible of all human components. Classes follow traditional Hatha asanas, combining breathing exercises and posture flows to build strength and flexibility, heightening the introspective and outro-sweaty aspects of yoga. For a more challenging steam session, opt for hot power yoga, which combines more than 56 asanas in a strenuous sequence to invigorate the body and energize the mind.
The savvy stylists of Chemistry, a Celsius Salon practice shampoo shamanism in a modern industrial setting. Gentlemen can check follicular overgrowth with the men’s cut ($30+), and ladies can shoot for a smart new ‘do with the women’s styling ($40+). The Virgin Tint ($60+) allows devious locks to hide the colorful trysts of their past, and the Hair Reconstructive System ($25+) recharges protein- and moisture-starved head hides. Special occasions and depressed 'do's can call for the gravity defying updo service ($50+). Both salons’ sleek furnishings create a chic, futuristic ambience akin to the cryogenically frozen Burt Gilliam.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Our La Lumière colour service was created by our founder after a trip to Paris in the spring. The Platine Salon uses this hair colour technique for strategic highlights and lowlights placement to showcase the shine and dimension that would be created by the sun reflecting in the hair. The result is gradual lightness and depth, while creating a rich colour palette in between.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Our founder has had a passion for all things beauty since she was a little girl. She loves doing hair as an integral part of the whole package of a woman's beauty regime. She believes that it is a woman's right to feel good about themselves. Her goal is for every woman to leave with a smile that stretches ear to ear, and she coaches her staff to use their passion in the same way.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
Our favourite service to perform is our unique La Lumière hair colour service. We feel that this the best way to change the hair colour palette and take away the grays, creating dimension with highlights and lowlights all while having a glossy finish in the end. It has taken lots of research to create this service, and we do it more than any other because it can remedy so many needs in one shot.
