Paul Pecorella began his journey of beauty and fashion in Pachino, Sicily, where he was born and raised. Following his passion for hair design, he eventually travelled to Rome and Milan, studying the craft and cementing his aesthetic. Then, in the 1960s, opportunity carried him across the Atlantic to Yorkville, where he obtained the title of Master Cutter and opened his salon. Now, dedicated to inspiring young stylists with that same zeal for fashion, Paul and his staff train New Talent artists in sophisticated scissor choreography while showing Mother Nature respect through eco-friendly Aveda products and proper table etiquette.
The mane artists at Paul Pecorella Hair Salon & Spa specialize in upstyling and technical colour, and invigorate tresses with chic cuts, textured styles, and hydrating follicle treatments supplemented by the organic, conditioning plant oils of Aveda products. Like a megaphone made from a rolled-up rainbow, Paul Pecorella's salon announces its commitment to style with vibrant colour palettes that revolve around lime and mint to inspire stylists as they flourish their craft.
Among offices snuggled alongside Toronto?s waterfront, Queens Quay Medspa?s professionally trained staffers beautify patrons from tip to toe-tip via treatments for the body and face, along with weight-loss programs. Dedicated to combatting aging, Queens Quay technicians reverse corporeal clocks through services such as lavish facials that imbue visages with a radiant glow and spider-vein-removal treatments using lasers plucked from arachnophobic droids. The med spa?s team remains on the cutting edge of rejuvenating treatments with an arsenal of advanced technology and equipment, from the Aluma Therapy skin-renewal system to UltraShape slimming treatments. To further bolster patron safety and comfort, knowledgeable staffers conduct in-depth consultations before treatments in English, French, or Russian to ensure understanding and fondly revisit the Triple Entente days. Queens Quay Medspa also accepts insurance benefits.
Amethyst Spa & Salon was founded in 1973 by Yvonne Wilson, who continues to own and operate the center. A licensed aesthetician and holistic practitioner, she has carved out a space where creature comforts tend to the spirit while practitioners tend to the body. Upon arrival, clients are invited to slip into a comfy full-length robe and sip on a complimentary beverage. After treatments, they can relax in the lounge, where soft music, a fireplace, and beverages prolong the effects of their treatment and delay a return to the outside world and to still-unfinished Yahtzee games in their 19th hours.
Of course, it's what happens between those bookend spa moments in that has kept Amethyst in business for more than 40 years. Clients indulge in a deluxe power repair facial, its fruit enzyme exfoliants coaxing radiant colours from the skin. Or, they revel in a warm seaweed and mineral mud wrap, during which botanical extracts send aromas into the air while nourishing ingredients work their magic. The spa also features manicures and pedicures, a salt cave, and a thermo acupressure massage bed.
Allure Body Bar doesn't have trickling waterfalls, crystal chandeliers, or frilly robes. Instead, the spa has highly trained professionals—self-described as "total clean freaks"—who deliver top-notch beauty treatments in a sanitary, relaxed, and comfortable environment. They specialize in hair-removal services for women, men, and politicians, ousting hair with a cream-based wax that suits even the most sensitive skin. To allay fears or misconceptions about waxing treatments, the hair-removal specialists begin appointments by explaining what's about to happen and how it's going to feel. They also offer up this FAQ page for first-time Brazilian or manzilian clients and answer intimate questions about another treatment they offer, vajazzling. In addition to these services, the beauty pros offer skincare treatments and massage therapy.
The expertly trained staff at Cirillo?s Salon Spa & Laser lavishes patrons with an array of soothing and beautifying services including facials and massages. Complexion cosseters can opt for a classic spa facial that whips mugs into glowing smile machines with traditional techniques, or a nondrying firming facial that helps reinstate pH equilibrium to unbalanced cheeks as it firms wilting faces with dimethylethanolamine (DMAE). Alternatively, sensitive epidermises can bask in the dulcet-toned healing of a harmonizing facial that thwarts reactive complexions? impulses to turn red and mumble when spoken to, effectively leaving emotion machines as calm and relaxed as a poolside-lounging cucumber. Once visages have been buffed and polished, an expert massage therapist unties looped latissimi and melts away deep-seated stress icebergs with a relaxing massage.
Though Organic Beauty Bar's pampering and beauty treatments may seem complex, the simplicity of their certified-organic products is the key to their success. Before they nourish clients' skin, their products' ingredients are simply hand-plucked off branches and from the earth to be mashed into pulps. The Hungarian herbs, fruits, and vegetables infuse the organic salves with active components, many of which might have been lost if they were pressed into extracts or chewed up and spit out.
The aestheticians put the nutrient-packed, dye-free serums to work during facials, massages, and body-scrub sessions. Their range of facials—including the Sweet Cinnamon facial and Bouquet of Flowers facial—cleanse surfaces and combat the signs of aging, while seaweed and sea kelp polish the entire body for a dewy, all-over sheen.
