Studio K Salon & Spa's owner Krystel Bennett can read hair like a book—one where all the protagonists look fantastic at dinner parties. After analyzing each client's hair type, she explains to them how it will respond to different color treatments or styles. While styling, Bennett draws on training in coloring at Schwartzkopf Academy and cutting classes at Toni & Guy. Her talent has attracted others, and resulted in Studio K's expert team of stylists and aestheticians. In addition to hairstyles for men, women, and kids, the beauty experts administer custom facial treatments and mani-pedis with long-lasting Shellac. They also wax away hair from head to toe, using sugaring techniques on more sensitive areas.
Timeless Life Clinic's team of degreed and certified aestheticians perform FDA- and Health Canada–approved med-spa services using equipment including the Angelite IPL system and the iLipo Chromogenex machine. Staff members request a preprocedure consultation, whereupon they learn each client's needs, goals, and favourite show about dancing and stars. After every session, guests can relax with complimentary tea, coffee, water, or a snack, as well as peruse products from Casmara Skin Care.
The certified technicians at Beauty by Laser administer skin-rejuvenating cosmetic treatments with GentleYag laser systems. Suitable for all skin types and complexions, the laser replaces a variety of invasive surgical procedures with quick and painless treatments that leave clients with natural-looking results. The techs wield focused beams of light to eliminate unwanted hair, visible spider veins, or to tighten up sagging skin loosened from skydiving to work every day. In addition to laser procedures, Beauty by Laser also revitalizes facescapes with facial treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion to reduce minor scarring and the signs of aging.

Paola Girotti started Sugar Moon Salon with a business partner and a $10,000 loan from her mom. After 10 years, this small beginning has burgeoned into two locations staffed by 15 technicians. Paola's success caught the attention of a few noteworthy publications, including Toronto Life, Loulou Magazine_, and Fashion Magazine. She has since trained more than 60 people from Ontario and the U.S and founded the Sugarmoon Academy, where aspiring sugarists can learn from seasoned professionals. Sugar Moon also supports multiple charities—many of which aid schools and children in need.
She and her staff garnered their acclaim thanks to their body sugaring services. An ancient Egyptian hair-removal method, this technique uses a hypoallergenic sugar paste to extract fuzz from follicles. They've also developed their own line of products such as lotions, body wash, and a take-home kit. This package makes DIY sugaring possible by providing all the essentials: powder, sugar paste, and a list of French blessings.
Coowner and medical nurse Marilyn Sepe helms Anti Aging Laser & Wellness Centre with a down-to-earth attitude. Her years of working in the skincare and medical industries have taught her that doctors and aestheticians often speak down to their clients—or talk above their heads. Marilyn, on the other hand, excels at listening. During consultations, she learns about her clients on a personal level, asking questions to find out what they like best about their looks, what they would change if they could, and what the deal is with airline food, right, folks? With this information, she helps them devise a treatment plan that may incorporate facials, laser hair removal, dermal fillers, or photofacials.
Even though Marilyn is a nurse and these treatments take place in a clinical setting, the centre's team hasn’t sacrificed comfort. Clients entering the spa's cozy confines are greeted by dim lighting and soft jazz, and sage-green walls, brown trim, and cork flooring surround them as they sip cups of tea fetched by the staff.
