Calling upon organic products whenever possible, the aestheticians at SOS Spa and Gifts rely on ingredients such as fruit enzymes, chocolate, and aloe vera to render skin smooth and blemish-free. In addition to facials, they smoothen hair with keratin masks, oust stress with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, and remove excess wax during ear-candling services. Before departing, their clients can stop by the shop to pick up supplies such as human-hair extensions and designer dresses.
The barbers at Maverick Studio elevate the haircut to an art form. They start by examining facial features to get the phrenological lay of the land. The aim is to create the experience of getting a bespoke haircut, rather than a pre-fab style. To help, they enlist top-shelf products, such as Eufora Hero shave gel. The shop specializes in precision gentlemen's cuts and facial hair detailing, and clients may supplement with a colour process or hot towel treatment for maximum relaxation.
The attention to detail is apparent in the ambiance as well. Sconces cast honey glow on polished wood accents and modern photography from local artists. And though there's a large TV always broadcasting a game, it feels more like a modern update to the barber shop tradition that dates back hundreds of years, rather than a new-fangled distraction.
Antech Hair & Skin Clinics’ ensemble of highly trained staff members have been revamping hair and skin via a combination of effective technology and natural biostimulants for more than 25 years. Private, personalized treatments bolster appearances through microdermabrasion with the DermaPod system, instant teeth-whitening sessions, and IPL hair-removal treatments that smooth bodies for faster swims to work. Meanwhile, the center's signature five-step hair-loss therapy merges scientific serums and herbal remedies to cleanse follicles of growth-inhibiting debris and help heads grow glossy crops of hair.
The aesthetic experts at Sure Hair International aim to address men’s and women’s thinning strands with both traditional and technological solutions. Surgeons perform hair transplants not only on the head, but also on eyebrows or chests that are feeling chilly. Less invasive alternatives include natural-looking graft systems, laser hair therapy, and SureThik products to use at home. Curious clients may wish to peruse the clinic’s blog, which hosts information on surgical options and the genetics of balding.
Linea Hair Studio is a destination for hair that needs to be cut, colored, or coaxed toward lushness with laser therapy. But it's more than a hair haven. Their nail technicians sooth tense extremities and cloak nails in glossy coats of color, and aestheticians wax away unwanted hair and dust bunnies that have become too clingy. In testimonials, devoted clients praise the staff's artistry and professionalism.
Clyger & Co Beauty supplies salons and spas across the country with the latest in eyelash extensions, hair removal, and skincare tools. However, this purveyor doesn’t only serve other businesses in the industry. Clyger also has its very own storefront in Toronto, offering clients top-notch beauty services first hand. The shop’s main claim to fame is semi-permanent eyelash extensions, which European-trained Esperanca and her licensed technicians adhere to the natural lash line one synthetic fiber at a time to instantly create plumper, longer, and flirtier lashes for weeks.
However, the rest of Clyger’s services hardly play second fiddle to eyelash extensions. For example, the team enhances hair removal-results with a two-step European system called EpilFree. After waxing, an aesthetician can massage two different serums onto the skin, resulting in a diminishment of hair re-growth. Additionally, Clyger’s all-natural and chemical-free herbal green peel deeply exfoliates skin to remove everything from wrinkles and stretch marks to acne. Applicable on any part of the body, the peel also combats cellulite, as does the shop’s LipoLaser system, designed to tighten and contour the arms, legs, buttocks, and stomach.
