Within the taupe-hued surroundings of Fraiche Salon, comfy black styling chairs stare into wood-rimmed mirrors, in which client's reflections transform during a variety of salon services. Along with haircuts and styles, highlights add streaks of vibrant colour to 'dos, and hair-straightening treatments leave manes stronger, shinier, and with the strength and elasticity to deflect oncoming boomerangs. Additionally, facials and waxing refresh visages and skin, and a kaleidoscope of packages such as Girls? Night Out, Working Girl De-Stress, and Me, Me, Me, Me blend several treatments into a single session.
The team at Richmond Beauty Bar spruces up exteriors with the help of both classic salon services and unique types of treatments. Hair services tame the tresses of the entire family, including men, women, children, and furry shag rugs. Body beautification can also take the form of nail and waxing services. For more face-focused treatments, Richmond Beauty Bar helps teeth sparkle with a 20-minute whitening system and dresses windows to the soul with eyelash extensions.
As the aromas of Toronto's Little Italy drift by outside, the technicians at Chic Nails welcome customers to take a seat in their row of nine pedicure chairs. They meticulously file, groom, and buff nails with an array of spa services that ranges from classic mani-pedis to applications of protective gels and acrylics. With vibrant shades of Shellac, they prevent fingernail polish from chipping or peeling, and their luxurious paraffin-wax treatments soften the skin on hands and feet. Sanitation remains the staff's primary concern—they regularly sterilize their tools and throw away disposable items after each use instead of using old files as teatime stirring sticks. Threading, waxing, and brief massage services complement the nail-focused menu. Facials, which rely on a line of organic Italian skincare products, are also available.
At Sheen Day Spa, which is located in the heart of Danforth, Toronto, a facial isn't merely about your face. As with all the spa's skincare treatments, facials are designed to promote "whole" healing, balancing physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, while allowing clients to ease their daily stress. But of course the Dermalogica custom facials also leave skin looking its best—from the UltraCalming facial, which helps soothe even the most aggravated or inflamed skin, to the rejuvenating hot-stone facial. Performed in a tranquil environment, other beautifying and relaxing spa services include massage therapy and reflexology; threading for the eyebrows, upper lip, chin, sideburns, or full face; firming body wraps; and Dead Sea salt scrubs. The spa uses high-quality products for all of its services, which tailor to the needs of each individual.
Tatiana Tikhomirova employs her extensive background in holistic medicine to oversee a crew of aestheticians and nail technicians at La Chance Beauty Salon. A licensed aesthetician and acupuncturist herself, Tikhomirova shares her scientific knowledge of skin function with clients, helping them to understand the causes of their complexion woes through consultations, dual counselling sessions, and improvised slam-poetry sessions. Her staff commands high-tech ultrasonic frequencies and a topical Botox alternative to rejuvenate faces but will also reach for tried-and-true wax to soften and smooth skin all over the body. The salon also sells therapeutic teas, and Russian matroshka dolls and hand-woven scarves, which reveal Tikhomirova's nostalgia for home.
