Below are my two picks for this year's Beautylicious.
Joanna’s Treatment #1
Mync Lash Lounge & Brow Bar
104 Yorkville Avenue, 2nd Floor
Some argue the most striking feature of your face is your eyes. So why not ensure the lashes & brows are groomed and primed to help bring them out? After watching numerous episodes of the Kardashians and their camel-looking eyelashes (yes I said it!) – it’s easy to get turned off from false lashes. But doing some research I thought it would be worth a try, Mync Lash & Brow is offering a “Born Lucky” lash extension at $125. This lash treatment includes 45 lashes of synthetic mink per eye and is their most popular service. The aesthetician that applied my lashes was knowledgeable about the application, care, and products used. I was so impressed I had to get a brow shaping, since it didn’t seem right to have pretty lashes with outgrown brows. The salon is modern, spacious, with a large bay window with the lash lounge beds spread across. (easy to take over an hour nap under the fuzzy blanket).
After three weeks and a vacation to Europe - I am convinced. I continue to receive numerous compliments on my long “natural” lashes, and have not worn mascara or eyeliner for weeks – and still going strong.
Joanna’s Treatment #2
Still Water Spa – Hyatt Hotel
4 Avenue Road (at Bloor)
This urban oasis is the perfect escape from the downtown rush. The sound of water can be heard while being pampered and taking care of your physical and mental well-being. This luxious spa is ranked one of the best in Toronto and at $125 their & Express Pedicure is a steal. The spa staff were accomodating and attentive, fresh snacks and refreshments are provided. A great close-to-home-getaway to treat someone or be treated.
