The hairstylists and aestheticians at Outshine Salon & Spa boast a collective penchant for combining advanced technologies with traditional beauty know-how. They incorporate Dermalogica products into all their facial treatments, and pamper their clientele with hairstyling sessions and advanced med-spa services—all amid the cool minimalism of their modern, brightly lit facility.
Within the calming interior, hairstyling stations stand decked in fresh flowers, and serene treatment rooms emanate old-Hollywood glamour with portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Elmer Fudd. In addition to its membership-rewards system, which grants deep discounts to regulars, the big-hearted beauty shop donates special spa evenings to local charities and shows appreciation to military members with special discounts.
Inside calming rooms decorated with bamboo accents, soft lights, and lush greenery, Heaven the Spa on the Rock's staff polishes skin with aesthetics-driven treatments. With the help of a Candela GMAX laser, technicians banish dead skin cells, unwanted hair, and wrinkles under non-invasive light energy. Meanwhile, facial and waxing regimens call on skin-nourishing formulas from Eminence Organic Skincare and GiGi, and manicure, pedicure, and massage services release stress pent up from long days of running errands or competing in errand triathlons. And lash extensions build volume with synthetic or natural Siberian mink lashes applied with medical-grade adhesive. Clients can also sweat away worries with a steam-room session included with every spa treatment.
The only thing the staff at Deco De Mode love more than making people feel beautiful on the outside is making them feel the same beauty on the inside. Their friendly, individualized approach to pampering is evidenced in a host of relaxing services: within sleek white interiors, an expert technician puts the finishing touches on the 3-D art masterpiece she’s painted onto a patrons’ nails; elsewhere, an aesthetician applies a set of eyelash extensions one by one. The team also performs laser hair removal and puts together spa parties for guests of honor.
At Luv Hair Salon, licensed aesthetician, spa therapist, and teeth-whitening technician Juliette Tomaselli plies her trade, beautifying clients with eyebrow-shaping, waxing, lash-tinting, and teeth-whitening treatments. The John Casablancas Institute–trained stylist travelled to Canada from her native South Africa, amassing 13 years of experience as she set down roots in Victoria. Juliette works alongside a team of beauty experts, each of whom has her own area of expertise; for instance, Bri specializes in elegant updos.
Along with other plant-derived products, the staff at Om Nailspa wields a signature line of natural hair and shaving serums crafted in Vancouver, the birthplace of hair. Vegan SpaRitual polishes coat nails in organically based hues during mani-pedis, and skincare treatments draw on the gentle, powerful ingredients of Keyano Aromatics. The spa’s atmosphere is as opulent as its products; crimson accent walls pop from taupe counterparts, some embellished with vibrant paintings by local artists.
Tonic Spa-tique's treatments are designed to restore health and vitality while enhancing beauty. The spa's experienced staff achieves such lofty heights via skincare such as facials, body wraps, and scrubs. The staff also specializes in brow and lash services including tinting, waxing, and extensions. And, so as not to leave a beauty stone unturned, the trained therapists and aestheticians offer massage, nail treatments, and makeup applications, as well.
