Profile Last Updated: September 24, 2008
Strands Hair and Skin Treatment Centre is a place that welcomes anybody in need or want of expert hair and skin care. You will feel calm and comfortable once you walk into Strands, as the salon oozes relaxation and meditation.
The Imaging computer system was introduced a few years ago when the salon expanded into an adjacent storefront. From there, they developed their own line exclusive to the centre that encompasses simple, basic, easy-to-use and effective products. Ever expanding and evolving, the hair care lines are accompanied by skincare, body care, aroma (essential oil) and cosmetic products exclusive to Strands.
Strands operates as one of the first ammonia-free salons in the city, and provides a wide range of services for clients to choose from. For example, the Thermocut means the blades of the scissors are heated so that ends are sealed once snipped, preserving natural oils and moisture. Hair will regenerate more quickly, resulting in bouncy, shiny, easy-to-care-for styles. Stylists generally choose a balance between European and North American trends.
Strands also specializes in skincare, and radiance is what they strive to give each client. The services and products are designed to support the natural health of the skin. Regular in-salon treatments and daily use of a skin care regiment at home (keeping skin soft and supple) are encouraged. Their aromatherapy services feature pure, plant-derived essential oils that are used in deep-conditioning treatments, facials and skin and hair care products.
