For those not familiar with what it is, many of the salons and spas in the Bloor-Yorkville area offer consumers set value-priced packages and services for a set period of time. There is a wide array of hair, spa, skin and health & wellness service packages available at four set prices - $30, $50, $75 and $125 in four categories: hair (hair/colour/cut/style); spa (includes massage and/or facial and/or mani/pedi); skin (non-invasive procedures including Botox, Restylane or chemical peel); and Health & Wellness (nutrition services, dental, chiropractic services). It's a great way to try out new places and services and score amazing deals!
There are too many packages for me to even begin to tell you about but you can find all the event info at www.bloor-yorkville.com with details of all the participating spas and salons as well as the packages available.
This year I was treated to a Orange Spice Pumpkin & Polish Pedicure at the Stillwater Spa, Park Hyatt Hotel - 4 Avenue Road - 416-926-2389 - that involves a custom blended spicy organic puree of pumpkin, nutrient rich mud combined with whipped honey sea salts in an invigorating exfoliation treatment that left my feet glowing and spicy fresh! And maybe craving a Pumpkin Spiced Latte… Ask for Natasha, she was amazing!
I have also enjoyed many Beautylicious services over the years and here are a few places I really liked who are participating again this year:
Marc Anthony Salon - 38 Avenue Road - 416-413-1521 has an amazing $125 offering of colour, partial highlights and cut with Executive Hair Designer Felor Davachi. You can read about my haircut there with Byron here.
Pure + Simple - 41 Avenue Road - 416-924-6555 - is offering a Skin Awakening Facial for $125 - I've had the deluxe sea salt microdermabrasion which is wonderful so I'm intrigued by this! You can read the review here.
and don't miss out on seeing Dr. Cory Torgerson - Facial Cosmetic Surgery - 70 Yorkville Avenue, Suite 31 - 647-343-0207 - who is offering 20% off SculpSure - the latest and greatest in fat reduction and non-surgical liposuction without the scary bruising of CoolSculpting!
What I also think sounds interesting :
The Brow House - 80 Scollard Street - 647-351-7078 - is offering a $75 Triple Threat including expert shaping, brow and lash tinting - for the perfect no-makeup look!
OxyBeauty - 14A Hazelton Avenue, Suite 304 - 416-929-4597 - has an Jet Peel Wrinkle Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation Treatment for $75 that sounds amazing
Kim Du Salon - 1300 Bay Street - 647-388-8713 - $50 will score you a wash, scalp massage, power-dose treatment and blow-dry - they had me at scalp massage!
