Along with other plant-derived products, the staff at Om Nail Spa wields a signature line of natural hair and shaving serums crafted in Vancouver, the birthplace of hair. Vegan SpaRitual polishes coat nails in organically based hues during mani-pedis, and skincare treatments draw on the gentle, powerful ingredients of Keyano Aromatics. The spa’s atmosphere is as opulent as its products; crimson accent walls pop from taupe counterparts, some embellished with vibrant paintings by local artists.
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.
For more than 10 years, Sheri Miller has fostered a welcoming, relaxing environment at Beauty Essentials Studio. Wielding OPI products—her preferred brand for nail treatments—she tends to digits with acrylic nails, gel polish, and natural manicure treatments. She also performs other services including paraffin treatments, exfoliating hand scrubs, and nail art.
The nimble-fingered staff at Quench Beauty Bar treat customers with a gourmet picnic of services for hair, hands, feet, and body. During a Brazilian wax, clients bid adieu to portable mini forests in a comfortable, private spa room while Quench’s aesthetician and trusty wax sidekick make quick, gentle work of separating hair from fresh-air-seeking skin. The defuzzing and smoothing treatment lasts about 20 minutes and uses naturally derived Keyano products. Patrons enjoy a relaxed environment, reflected in the spa's soothing blue hues, warm wood floors, and Ode to a La-Z-Boy mural.
Gentle Touch Esthetics colours each dermal digit with loving care that soothes each limb and limbers all minds. The European manicure ($24) strokes the clock for forty-five minutes as a calm cosmetologist treats cuticles, shapes nails, and massages hands before applying a Light Concept Gel polish of your choice. The clock ticks away another hour before the European pedicure ($43) finishes dancing into a foot bath, with a foot massage and nail shaping session taunting away calluses so that toes can receive their colourful care.
