BellaMarie Salon & Spa’s experienced stylists, aestheticians, and sugarists place their clients' needs first, whether it means designing haircuts that minimize styling time or eliminating embarrassing hairs just in time for swimsuit season. This helpful attitude—combined with their years of experience—keeps the team busy with repeat customers and referrals, who journey to the salon for services that include haircare, waxing, and mani-pedis.
Over the last 20 years or so, VIP Beauty Center has grown and adapted to meet the needs of both clients and aspiring hairstylists. The result is its current incarnation: a hair studio that also offers a litany of beauty-industry training programs. First and foremost, VIP Beauty Center's stylists focus their full attention on hair services that touch on nearly every treatment desirable, from colour to texturizing to traditional hairstyling. The staff also performs select spa treatments for men, women, and children, including facials using relaxing hot stones.
The studio is also known for the many training classes it offers for beauticians who want to expand or improve on their repertoire of skills. These include lessons on professional makeup application, manicuring and pedicuring, body-hair removal, and the most sensitive way to talk a naked mole rat out of additional waxing services.
Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.

Beyond skincare, Knuth and her team can minimize hair growth with IPL laser hair removal, impart glows with tanning-bed glows, or add dazzle with body jewellery ranging from ear and nose piercings to vestigial-gill gems.
You won't find the words "Extreme," "Hollywood," or "Rock Star" on Zipp Lash's menu. Instead, you can opt for 50, 60, or 70 natural-looking eyelash extensions custom fitted to your eyes so they look like your own natural lashes, albeit a bit more lush. Lash technicians undergo an eyelash residency to learn the two-step fitting process that ensures lashes look real and last up to four weeks between fills.
