The stylists at Edessa's Hair Salon draw on years of experience working with all types of hair to give each client the look they desire. They trim away split ends with precise scissor-snips, infuse strands with rich color, and deep-condition tresses with balms and butters by Redken and Biolage Hydrathérapie. Patrons can also peruse more than 150 shades of OPI nail polish for meticulous manicures and spa pedicures.
Old-World sconces cast a honey glow on Kohinoor Beauty's warm-red and pale-yellow walls. An enormous photo of a perfectly decorated eye adorns one of the crimson walls. As if to assure clients of the staff's aesthetic abilities and attentiveness, the picture is positioned so guests can see the meticulously curled lashes in every mirror. A skilled staff member can ramp up eyes to match the photo by tinting brows or lashes or individually adhering semipermanent extensions to natural eye fringe. Waxing and threading are also among the women's-only salon's specialties. Technicians shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz from faces, bodies, and shadowy silhouettes.

The staff at CN Spa Laser take a hard stance against wrinkles and blemishes, but they're flexible when it comes to technology. Since 1999, they've been updating their equipment to stay abreast of advances in the aesthetic field. That means that the med-spa is always stocked with state-of-the-art tools, from FDA-approved lasers to really cool goggles for protecting your eyes from the lasers. The lasers assist with procedures such as hair removal, skin firming, and the reduction of age spots. Technicians also administer Botox and other injectables to ward off wrinkles and fine lines.
Despite their focus on current technology, the CN Spa Laser team hasn't given up on certain classic treatments: they still treat clients to massages, mani-pedis, facials, and makeup applications.
The beauty professionals at Indira Salon and Spa foster serenity with eco-conscious Aveda products. As stylists trim, dye, and texture hair, aestheticians revive skin with Aveda's signature plant-based facials. The staff infuses each of their services with extra touches of luxury, such as soothing noses stressed by bickering eyebrows with aromatherapy during elemental massages and offering complimentary makeup touchups after waxing. Nail technicians lavish hands and feet with masques, steam towels, and massages during even their most basic manicures and pedicures, some of which also include foot reflexology or balms made from ginger, mango, cocoa, and lime.
Maximizing beauty is the main goal of the staff at Serenity Hair & Spa, but they make sure to pamper clients along the way. Their stylists condition, cut and style hair, or infuse it with luscious texture during protein conditioning treatments.
On the spa side, Serenity's aestheticians elongate eyelashes one by one with 3-D extensions. Sothys facial treatments correct issues such as acne or dry skin, and fragrant salt scrubs leave skin radiant from head to toe.
