At Eternal Beauty n Beyond, certified medical aesthetician Kerri Le works with one goal in mind: to create personalized skin solutions for every client. After evaluating a client’s needs and skin concerns, she designs a customized skincare plan by employing the techniques she learned at Canadian Beauty College and using state-of-the-art, FDA-approved medical aesthetic treatments. These treatments may include chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or Dermalogica facials. The latter use zone-by-zone face mapping to deliver exactly what skin needs right at that moment, such as a tattoo of a lion selling Dermalogica products.
Since first realizing the importance of touch to people's wellbeing, Jessica Pinto Ghuman has come to master a broad set of aesthetic and relaxation services. With ideas and techniques she's gleaned from her own spa visits, Jessica plies her clients' bodies with a variety of massage modalities, from Swedish and hot stone to aromatherapy. Indian scalp massages incorporate slow infusions of oils and spices, while luxurious mani-pedis revive nails left jagged by excessive scratch-and-sniff habits.
The cosmetic caretakers at In Style Salon & Spa come from all over the world to sculpt hairdos, apply makeup, and soothe the body with acupuncture and massage. At individual stations—stark black islands against the neutral wash of the walls—cosmeticians curl locks and pamper feet between gauzy curtains. Flowers and other greenery soften the space, bringing in a breath of nature without the need to invite a panting bear.
Natural light floods into A & B Creative Looks, illuminating canary-yellow tiles and tan walls emblazoned with a floral pink stripe. Since opening the studio in 2010, its aesthetics professionals have treated men and women with environmentally conscious salon and spa services. Using ammonia-free hair colour and herbal facial products, they beautify the body with minimal effect on the environment other than the jealousy evoked in forest nymphs with tangled hair. In addition to performing hair and facial services, they reduce the appearance of cellulite deposits, sunspots, and dark circles with noninvasive treatments administered in secluded treatment rooms.
