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.
At Happy Bug Nails, customers can make sure their fingers and toes pop with colour after they’re topped with coats of polish from top brands such as CND, Harmony Gelish, OPI, and Essie. Nail technicians personalize each mani-pedi with add-ons that include a paraffin treatment and hundreds of artistic nail designs that run the gamut from polka dots to tiny portraits of your favourite prime minister. Happy Bug Nails also offers additional pampering with sugaring services that remove unwanted hair on faces, arms, legs, and tails.
Flaunting years of experience, Ortensia Nail Salon & Spa's seasoned technicians eradicate enduring bristles with swift and gentle waxing techniques. A Brazilian wax spans approximately 30 minutes and ensures that all hair residing in the bikini area smoothly disappears and leaves skin clean. In supporting the spa's mission for immaculateness, Ortensia's scrupulous staff meticulously scrubs and sanitizes each chair, table, and magic wand for an overall essence of purity. Tranquil marble flooring and countertops wash out urban congestion and splashes of greenery gently climb soft, white walls.
Lux-Spa distinguishes itself from traditional salons with its unique approach to nailcare. During waterless manicures, technicians avoid soaking their clients’ hands, which they claim can weaken nails and cause polish to chip away earlier and more often. They also incorporate cocoa extracts, rosemary-mint scrubs, and tea-tree oils into manicures and pedicures in an effort to nourish skin and relax clients. Technicians paint nails using selections from the 300 available polishes, which helps clients match their fingernails to their favourite Skittle flavours. Waxing treatments employ imported, eco-friendly Rica waxes from Sicily, which are made up of natural ingredients and efficiently uproot unwanted follicles from a range of skin types.
Maintaining beauty takes a combination of professional-grade products, personalized services, and skill. At Tatiana Esthetics, veteran aestheticians work to meet these criteria as they make over each client that crab walks into their business. They administer everything from standard mani-pedis to oxygen facials, which envelop facades in a cloud of mist that can heal and smooth damaged skin. Turning to the rest of the body, they coat unwanted fuzz in warm wax and remove hair with a touch as soft as a baby cotton swab. They also specialize in services for men, such as a hot-towel treatment that drapes faces in warmth and opens pores.
