Inside the opulent Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Penelope & The Beauty Bar’s team of multitalented technicians commandeers a full-body menu of traditional and med-spa treatments. From microcurrent technology to marine extracts, the staff wields effective regimens to smooth silhouettes plagued by blemishes, cellulite, or stuck-on ball gowns. Alongside each treatment's regular rates stands discounted member pricing, which avails itself to customers with the purchase of annual memberships that also include access to special promotions throughout the year.
As somebody may or may not have once said, it takes a good massage to refuel your life-tank with enough life-fuel to finish first in a father-daughter sack race. Re-Leaf owner Tari Dean and her team of talented tension tamers will knock on the doors of your muscles, bearing gifts and comforting back pats. During the Swedish massage, your friendly and licensed therapist will carefully craft a custom muscle-mellowing formula using long strokes, both strong and gentle, to encourage blood flow and loosen long-clenched limbs. You’ll emerge refreshed, renewed, and appropriately rewarded for meeting your weekly quota of ski-mask sales.
While studying hairdressing in the late 1980s at an Aveda salon, Lisa Vann fell in love with the company's products and global ethics. She decided to further her relationship with the beauty business by helping to develop new Aveda haircare lines and traveling the world to demonstrate the brand's products and techniques to other salon professionals. The owner and acclaimed stylist of Milagros Salon Spa has had her work featured in several publications, including Glamour, Marie Claire, and Essence, and received four consecutive nominations for international hairstylist of the year from the Canadian Mirror Awards.
In keeping with Lisa's Aveda upbringing, Milagros's staff performs each salon and spa treatment with botanically derived Aveda products. Stylists brighten strands and fading area rugs using Aveda Full Spectrum hair color blended from 97% natural ingredients. Body treatments—such as the rosemary-mint wrap and sea-salt polish—and custom facials detoxify and balance skin with plant extracts and hydrating creams.
Mixtzin Beauty and Talent stylists invite men, women, and children into their styling chairs where they shower them with precision cuts and professional products by GK Hair Products, Awapuhi, Pureology, and Schwarzkopf. Working eyeball to eyeball with clients, the team evaluates facial shape and proportion before recommending bold new cuts, natural hair extensions, or color treatments—or merely maintains current styles with trims and touchups.
