Making eyes stand out from a crowd is Vivian Ko Gooch’s business. She and her staff of certified lash-smiths add va-va-voom and fetching contrast with their eyelash extensions. Their work has caught on with local celebrities and roped in a slew of positive press mentions thanks to their expertly bedecked lids, which sport synthetic polyester or silk lashes in a variety of curls, lengths, thicknesses, and colours. Vivian’s aestheticians also tend to the rest of their guests’ faces with exfoliating facials, eyebrow waxes, and makeup applications for special occasions such as weddings, galas, and swim meets.
Harbour Beauty Salon offers its customers a wide variety of hair, nail, and skin services. Stylists snip excess hair in cuts for women, men, or children, and offer coloring services with Redken products. Nail technicians can color fingers and toes with over 200 OPI colors, along with CND Shellac and gel polish options. Other services include European or deep-cleansing facials, alongside waxing treatments and real mink eyelash extensions.
The team at Vis Vita Medical Wellness and Regeneration Clinic demonstrates its commitment to effective beauty and wellness treatments by combining the traditional with the technological. Clients relax during 3,000-year-old acupuncture treatment while elsewhere, lasers and low-frequency waves target cellulite and adipose tissue. Skin-resurfacing equipment sloughs off the outermost layer of skin alongside facials that are infused with natural ingredients such as green tea and botanicals.
Tatiana Beauty Studio is named for the certified aesthetician in charge, Tatiana Kourtchenko. She specializes in skin care, brightening complexions with facials that incorporate steam, organic Éminence products, massage, and anti-aging treatments more effective than covering wrinkles with band-aids. However, she also paints nails with OPI polish and eradicates unwanted stubble with waxing treatments.
The Cranberries facial begins with a consultation with one of the spa's skilled aestheticians, who will then design a customized treatment to meet the skin's individual needs. With the nuances of the client's outer shell fully understood, Cranberries Spa's staffers will indulge the skin in ethereal exfoliation and perform extractions (if necessary), cleaning out clogged pores and sweeping away dead skin cells like candy wrappers from an abandoned carnival on the prairie. A steam and a massage flush out toxins and flesh out flesh, respectively, leaving the face refreshed and rejuvenated. As the experts tend to weary head-shields, clients will relax on a heated bed to soothe away stress and muscle tension.
At Broadway Nails Spa, guests relax while skilled aestheticians buff nails and condition skin until they both gleam. During mani-pedis, the staff tops nails with colorful polish after smoothing jagged edges caused by biting nails or scratching lottery tickets too vociferously. Other treatments include eyelash extensions, waxing, and laser hair-removal, as well as permanent makeup application that makes getting ready less time-consuming.
