Beauty experts polish their clients' fingers and toes before touching up their faces with vibrant makeup. Stylists clip, buzz, and sculpt the gentlemanly coifs of guests seated in their styling chairs. With their dashing new looks, these customers would stop traffic—if they were old enough to drive. At Sweet & Sassy, a salon and spa exclusively for children, glamour comes in all sizes. Mini manicures, pedicures, hairstyles, and makeup services give girls their first taste of the pampered life, and boys' haircuts give lads roughhouse-ready looks in styling chairs their own size. Even infants get in on the grooming with the Baby's First Cut package, which includes a hair locket, certificate, and photo keepsake to commemorate the first time their parents saw their ears. The salon also goes beyond simple image enhancements with themed parties, in which hot-pink limos scoop up young partygoers and bring them to the salon to don gowns and tiaras, strut down the runway, or rehearse for a live pop-music performance.
The expert technicians at Lipolaser Centers deploy the clever beams of a laser to shave off excess weight in about an hour. During this signature, noninvasive treatment, low-level pulses gently persuade retained water and lingering lipids to relinquish disputed territory in regions such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and lower back. After two sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
No client’s hair desire is too much to ask of Catherine Jones. The stylist at Old World Salons creates classic and out-of-the-box 'dos with precision, dry, and razor cuts. She straightens hair and, at the opposite end of the spectrum, breathes volumes into strands with permanents. Her clients include men, women, children, and children’s favorite stuffed animal.
At The Homeopathic Clinic, practitioner Susan Pimentel guides patients toward healthier lifestyles during one-on-one counselling sessions. A fully certified graduate of the Toronto School of Homeopathic Medicine, Pimentel spends approximately 60 minutes taking notes on her client's emotional, physical, and mental concerns before helping patients select the best holistic remedies. Detailed menu plans conquer dietary and nutritional imbalances, and vitamin and mineral recommendations help bolster the body's healing process. Each remedy plan is both nontoxic and safe for all children, adults, and human-washing-machine hybrids.
Located inside the office of board-certified plastic surgeon Scott E. Kasden, M.D., F.A.C.S., Southlake Complete Skin Care combines the comfort of a spa with the training and technology of a medical office.
