Synergy Tanning Studio imbues bodies with a beach-ready, sun-kissed look with a dynamic repertoire of tanning services. High-quality bulbs line the inside of the salon’s tanning beds, where guests can adjust the intensity to suit their complexions. For UV-free tanning, the salon’s airbrush technicians baste bodies with natural, sugar-based Synergy tanning solutions that impart a lasting, streak-free tan in sessions that last no more than 20 minutes. Synergy Tanning Studio also caters to cosmetic needs with waxing treatments, facials, and mani-pedis.
Sugar Blossom gently removes unwanted stubble and wisps through sugaring, an all-natural, nectarous art form originated in ancient Egypt. A trained-and-experienced practitioner hygienically applies the water-soluble sugar solution to the Brazilian area (up to a $60 value) before lightly pulling hairs in the direction of growth and evenly exfoliating deadbeat epidermis from the skin's surface. The lukewarm ointment is free of harsh chemicals and superfluous oils, ensuring that it won’t spontaneously birth mutant life forms and that it is safe on all skin types. Clients often report an absence of pain, rashes, or ingrown hairs typical of waxing and porcupine cuddling. When booked at the same time as the Brazilian sugaring, new clients enjoy 20% off additional sugaring services.
Indulge Hair Studio Inc. owner and 16-year veteran Sara Tamburello-Capone guides her crew of stylists as they cut and colour locks at hair stations outfitted with sleek chairs and full-length mirrors encased in black frames. Armed with L’Oréal Professional products, the staff imbues hair with highlights and all-over colour in shades reflected in the salon’s earthen-hued tiles or nearby traffic lights. They also twist strands into chic updos and quickly lengthen locks with hair extensions.:m]]
Salon V's golden and burgundy walls seem to glow beneath elegant glass chandeliers. High overhead, pin lights recall a constellation of stars as skilled stylists cultivate face-flattering cuts and bedeck tresses with subtle and bold colour highlights. The salon also pampers patrons with high-end products such as OPI, Bioline, and Gehwol during specialty mani-pedis and therapeutic facial treatments.
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.
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.
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.
