In 2003, a woman arrived at Martin's Coiffeur & Spa, and with her came her hair—as long as she was tall, and grown out over the course of 21 years. According to the Windsor Star, Martin himself worked with Dorothy Parsons for nearly three hours, performing a dramatic cut that allowed Parsons to donate more than four feet of hair to an organization that creates wigs for children battling cancer.
That's just one example of what Martin can do, thanks to his training from educators in both California and Paris and his 2.5 decades of experience. Combining this expertise with technology, he offers men and women high-fashion haircare and invites them to partake of massages, facials, and other aesthetic services. An onsite computer system allows patrons to get a glimpse of what they may look like with a particular 'do; computers also play a significant role in the spa's nail imaging—a service that allows clients to outfit nails with thousands of designs, personal photos, or a tiny picture of a picture of a picture of your hands.
The technicians and aestheticians at Hometown Laser Clinic & Spa wield focused light to eliminate cellulite or fat, tighten the skin, and remove hair. They also pamper bodies with less invasive spa treatments, such as facials that utilize Canadian-based Dr Renaud skin products, the same ones supplied to the 2010 Oscars. And no matter what the treatment—body contouring with radio frequency or a basic massage—aestheticians provide free consultations to answer questions about what to expect and swap needlepoint advice.
Shekinah Spa & Salon pampers guests from hair to toe with an extensive menu of beautification services so that no damaged strand or nail goes unattended to. A skilled stylist can follow up an invigorating deep-conditioning treatment with flattering layers or highlight bland strands with a new seasonal hue. Guest may also retreat to a private room for a restorative massage, or request the salon's hair removal techniques, which include waxing, threading, or sending rebellious sideburns to boarding school. The staff can also transform looks with extensions or wigs, and can even entertain kids and teams with salon parties.
Nefertiti embraces natural beauty and helps clients feel confident without the use of harsh chemicals or heated tools. Her haircare services employ pure cleansing ingredients such as apple-cider vinegar, lemon, lavender, and rosemary, plus essential oils to rehydrate strands. Beauty services below the bangs include healing facials, body-waxing treatments, and massages that aim to reduce tension and restore range of motion. Nail services not only spruce up the appearance of nails but also soften skin with natural sea salts and paraffin dips infused with chamomile, lavender, or vanilla.
Soft strains of music mingle with the aromas of essential oils at Regeneration Centre of Beauty and Health. There, a staff of beauty and wellness specialists performs hair- and bodycare services with a wide range of traditional elixirs as well as organic products and supplements. Through massage treatments, the therapists aim to restore energy, well-being, and a sense of peace akin to frolicking in a field of marshmallows. They also perform therapeutic services such as reflexology, acupressure, and moxibustion—a traditional chinese remedy that promotes circulation through the burning of mugwort over affected areas. The team performs haircuts and styling services with Schwarzkopf organic products, and improves strands’ lustre with botanical hair and scalp therapy. Detoxification supplements and herbs are also available for purchase.
Nefertiti Beauty Salon—named in honor of the former queen of Egypt—celebrates timeless glamour with a traditional lineup of hair, nail, and waxing services powered by products from BC and Schwarzkopf. Staying true to the loose translation of "Nefertiti" as “the beautiful one has arrived,” Nefertiti’s licensed stylists chisel down overgrown locks and repurpose manescapes with artfully executed layers accented by pops of colour. All services take place in a salon space that adheres to Egyptian style, from the wall accents to the receptionist who jots down appointments in hieroglyphics that uncannily resemble the English language.
