The stylists at Lavish Salon use Kevin.Murphy and John Masters Organics products during hair services and aesthetics that bolster and maintain natural beauty. They add texture with cuts and colouring treatments and rehydrate hair with conditioning treatments. Stylists also remove unwanted hair with waxing and groom fingers during manicures.
The aestheticians at Gorgeous Skin Spa let the healing molecules in the botanical-rich Prana SpaCeuticals product line do the grunt work while administering their specialty facials. Prana translates to “breath” in Sanskrit and reflects Prana SpaCeuticals’ philosophy that all-natural, living ingredients improve the appearance of skin far better than the harsh synthetics found in commercial products. Aestheticians complement their facial services with waxing treatments, which also draw on organic formulas, and semipermanent-makeup applications harness plant-based pigments to fill in brows, third eyes, and lips. The spa's menu also includes peels, eyelash extensions, and mani-pedis.
Equipped with Bumble and bumble and OPI products, the skilled staff at Vixen Hair Studio transform dishevelled mop-tops into stylish new manes, ragged nails into polished ovals, and furry brows into sleek arches. Upon arrival, a beauty expert consults with clients to plan the hair services and skincare treatments they require based on their desired look or need to find work as a clown's body-double. The in-house aestheticians flaunt their years of training in soothing mani-pedis, eye-opening lash tints and extensions, airbrush tanning, and makeup applications. They also remove unwanted hair with traditional waxing and through the ancient art of threading, a centuries-old technique that uses loops of cotton thread to remove hair more gently and efficiently than with other methods.

Referring to themselves as “Stellas,” the stylists at Stella Haute Coiffure create a vintage atmosphere that carries through to the salon’s antique accents. In addition to their cutting and colouring specialties, the Stellas remove unwanted hair with waxing services and dress up fingers and toes during mani-pedis that treat appendages to soaks, exfoliation treatments, and paraffin dips.
Though most people don’t associate scissors, needles, and popcorn with one another, all three play a big part in Design House Salon’s continuing allure. The salon’s owners, Chantelle Pasychny and Kurtis Brown, blend their passions for hairstyling and acupuncture in a menu of spa services designed to promote well-being from the inside out. Along with their beautifying hair treatments and chi-balancing acupuncture sessions, they nourish bodies with munch-ready popcorn that they purchase from the nearby Kernels Popcorn store.
When they aren’t snacking or counting how many popped kernels fit in a jar of Barbicide, clients can tune in to the wall-mounted television or admire the decor’s minimalistic theme. Nestled inside the historic Hudson Building, the salon goes for an industrial-chic look that incorporates the structure's original concrete pillars and reclaimed pieces of wood.
Elegance Medi Spa's cosmetic procedures entwine Eastern modalities with noninvasive Western technology. Using this mix, the staff of certified technicians can help patients vanquish flab with an FDA-approved LipoLaser, banish unwanted hair with laser hair-removal services using the LightSheer XC diode laser, and fade discolouration with teeth whitening. No matter what aesthetic treatment patients choose, they first undergo a comprehensive consultation to discuss their concerns, goals, and favourite celebrity baby names.
At Richard Mar School of Hair and Esthetics, trained and highly experienced professionals train and mentor students on their ways to becoming spa specialists, owners, and managers.

They also train for and perform in competitive trade shows to build their portfolios and put notches on their belts sewn from hair.
