With TIFF just behind us and our allure of glitz and glam wearing off, the men and women of Toronto are starting to feel a little… well… drab. Luckily, our city’s world class spas offer luxurious treatments that will perk you back up and make you feel like a million bucks in no time.
Deluxe Moroccan Body Spice Glow, $205 | Body Blitz, 471 Adelaide Street West or 497 King Street East
Ladies can expect the full body treatment, beginning with the spa’s body wash and scrub mitt. You’ll then be massaged with a specially formulated body polish of argan oil, white clay, cinnamon, anise, and rice powder. Enjoy a hand and foot massage while the polish dries to your skin under infrared lights. Relax under a chamomile tea rinse followed by a full body massage and nourishing scalp treatment. A green clay facemask follows a gentle, exfoliating face wash. The treatment is finished with a shampoo and conditioning, so that you walk out refreshed and revitalized from head to toe.
Luxury Gold Pedicure, $130 | Spa at the Four Seasons, 60 Yorkville Avenue
When your open-toed shoes hits a red carpet, you want to make sure your feet are ready. This pedicure combines a decadent spa pedicure, a hydrating foot treatment made from the healing thermal waters of Hungary with the added sparkle of a gold sugar scrub and gold shimmer oil.
The MANicure for Men, $25 | The Ten Spot, several locations across the GTA
Check out the beauty bar that prides itself on offering the ultimate “anti-spa experience.” Don’t worry about being subjected to the sound of waterfalls or frilly, feminine interiors. With The Ten Spot’s no-nonsense philosophy, you can expect a streamlined experience in a fun and funky environment.
The Man, $60 | Civello Salon and Spa, several locations across the GTA
You work hard and play harder, but there’s no reason to let it show. This spa package was designed for Toronto’s most stylish gentleman and includes a hot towel facial treatment; a head, neck, and shoulder massage; nail shaping and buffing; and brow cleanup. In only an hour, you’ll be revitalized and ready for another night on the town.
Keratin Hair Straightening, $250 | Prive Spa, 1069 College Street
Formulated without formaldehyde or parabens, Prive Spa offers a hair straightening experience that is second to none. Even the frizziest of hair is transformed into smooth, silky locks that last for up to 20 weeks. Rather than causing further damage to heat styled and colour treated hair, keratin straightening actually helps to nourish and repair. The treatment is completed with a wash and blow dry, so you’ll walk out ready for the night’s star-studded gala.
