Raj Singh opened Aaina Spa and Salon in 2006 to meet the demands of her bourgeoning clientele. Previously a salon owner for nearly a decade, Singh brought a backlog of experience, highly trained scissors, and a strong client base to her new endeavour. At Aaina Spa and Salon, Singh oversees certified aestheticians who help clients achieve a wide scope of aesthetic goals. Together, the hair and skin specialists aim to combine efficiency with quality. In the waiting room, cream walls reach toward a ceiling that's painted to resemble a blue sky with wispy clouds. Upon stepping through translucent curtains into the styling room, clients kick back for custom cuts, colours, and perms. Other beauty services include laser hair removal, massage therapy, tanning, and skincare treatments.
Behind the pretty stone façade of The Thymeless Apothecary is a fittingly beautiful collection of bath and beauty products from around the globe. Colourful candles and diffusers line the shelves, filling the air with scents of persimmon and bergamot. Giant jars filled with colourful salts beckon visitors to scoop the fragrant crystals into awaiting bags and create their own relaxing scents. These crystals are then taken home to be used in the bath or scattered on an icy driveway.
Thymeless Apothecary’s Alonda Nichols—who spent more than 20 years at the helm of an upscale spa—uses many Thymeless’s products during her facial treatments. Each facial is customized to skin type and can treat issues such as fine lines, acne, or dryness.
With more than 17 years of styling experience and slew of hair colour classes tucked behind her ear, Creative Touch Hair Salon’s Cathy Brown snips, shapes, and dyes locks with confidence. By analyzing her clients’ face-shapes, the deft cosmetologist can determine and suggest the most feature-flattering hairstyle and best-fitting top hat. Brown slings top-shelf products by Joico and Schwarzkopf as she infuses strands with deep-conditioning treatments, enhances colour with highlights, or adds bounce with perms. In addition to men's, women's, and children's cuts, the stylist also grooms hirsute brows and eradicates unwanted tufts from lips and chins with professional wax treatments.
Maya Jobanputra and the acupuncturists and holistic healers at Vyana Wellness Naturopathic Centre realign energy meridians and heal bodily ailments in accordance with ancient Chinese techniques and modern scientific education. Maya’s uncanny awareness of the body’s needs stems from her formal training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Certifications in Bowen therapy and yoga instruction have further tuned Maya into the body’s natural balances and imbalances caused by illness, depression, or attempting to rollerblade across the kitchen counter. To augment these therapies and help patients stave off unhealthy stressors, Vyana’s counsellors listen to concerns and dole out helpful advice.
