Leah Keith swings an edgy rock-and-roll style herself, making funky ‘dos her forte. But, with more than 12 years of experience working with hair of every length and texture, she can sculpt looks that complement any occasion or personality. At Blend Salon, Leah clips sleek layers to flatter the features or splashes colour on bland strands. Formal updo styles and false eyelash applications are also available.
Hybrid Hair and Detox Spa has a knack for responsible beauty. When Erin Kier had the chance to open her own salon, she saw it for what it was: a chance to fulfill her lifelong dream of not only taking care of people, but also looking after world in which we live. Thereby, Kier's vision for a salon-spa where health and beauty were intertwined also avoided harmful industry practices with the goal of having the most dainty of environmental footprints. House stylists aim to use green-friendly products, many of which are all-natural, vegan, and toxin-free. And a bottle-refill program helps keep plastic away from landfills and fire breathers. Therapists also perform reiki reflexology and shamballa services.
Kier's goodwill extends beyond the salon-spa's walls. A Green Circle Salon membership ensures that foil and spare hair are shipped off for reuse, and participation in the University of Waterloo's WellFit program helps provide support for cancer survivors.
In Deeva Hair’s newly renovated downstairs, Amanda Neilly bustles about, reviving worn-out hands and feet with pampering services.

Even with 18 years of experience in the beauty industry, Danielle O'Brien realizes that there are always new techniques and procedures to master. She chose to embrace current treatment modalities by earning her certification in cutting-edge laser therapy treatments. Using a SharpLight ForMax cosmetic laser system, Danielle improves clients' skin tone and texture by helping minimize the appearance of unwanted stubble, acne lesions, and age spots.
Of course, she still performs traditional, yet effective facials too. Her facial treatments similarly aim to restore a youthful glow and vigor to the skin, albeit by using Sothys skincare products instead of laser technology. Held within a candlelit room, these facials are intended to put visitors at ease while extracting impurities and moisturizing skin.
