There actually is a vault at Vault Salon & Spa, but instead of locking away rubies and riches, the wide-open room welcomes visitors to its gourmet coffee. As profiled by Winnipeg Free Press, the owners, Amber Robinson and her father Frank Ostrowski, spared no expense when revamping the former bank building into a two-storey salon, spa, and forthcoming gym. They imported Italian and French furnishings that complement the space’s giant stained-glass windows and white-brick arches, and they hauled in the latest beauty equipment, including a Vichy shower imported from Brazil and a double-dry sauna.
Vault’s dedicated stylists echo this passion for perfection as they craft hair colours using Goldwell and Schwarzkopf dyes and create elegant curls with Doll Tools. Meanwhile, at the salon’s three nail stations, technicians decorate digits with the trendiest nail products and techniques, including OPI gel polish and duck tips—faux nails that also double as scuba flippers. And back in the spa, aestheticians armed with Image Skincare products spend their days brightening complexions or polishing bodies with Dead Sea–salt scrubs and mud wraps.
When they're not revamping looks or operating the cappuccino machine, Vault’s team is catering to bridal parties in the Wedding Room. Here, brides get dolled up for their big day while enjoying the room’s amenities, which include a TV, stand-up bar, and VIP elevator service.
