Surrey Spas – Which is the best?

It is very important to consider a few key factors. Is sanitization a top priority for the spa? Are all therapists licensed? How is their health board record? Is the spa designed in a way that provides a relaxing environment? Do they provide all of the amenities that we expect from a great spa? Do the have a steam room, showers, lockers, products to use with your visit, etc.. Does the spa provide a high level of service every time?

Well after much research, (and yes I did have to visit many spas, multiple times… rough job) I can tell you that I found my stand out favourite out of all Surrey Spas.

After Visiting Aru Spa and Salon on multiple occasions, I was consistently pleased with the entire visit each and every time. The design is immaculate, the place is kept very clean and after grilling my therapists throughout my services, I can tell yo that their sanitation practices are top notch. Most of all their staff was very professional and extremely helpful anytime I asked questions. I would highly recommend that you consider giving them a try. Aru Spa and Salon is in South Surrey on 152nd street near 20th Avenue.

How many times have you been frustrated with your hair? If you are like the average woman, you wish you could do something different with your hair, such as make it fuller or longer. While changing your hair color is easy, it is harder to change the length or fullness of your hair without waiting for it to grow naturally. That is why Vancouver salons now offer a variety of Vancouver hair extension services that will not only change your hairstyle, but your life in the process.

Depending on your budget and the type of style you are searching for, there are plenty of hair extensions Vancouver shops that will cater to your needs. While celebrities made hair extensions popular – think of Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears – you don’t need to be a millionaire to change your look. You can choose between natural and synthetic hair pieces to complete renovate your look, all in the comfort of different Vancouver salons. You can walk out of a hair salon looking and feeling more confident, all because you changed your style with hair extensions.

If you have never used extensions before, the process is fast and easy. Simply tell the stylist what look you are looking for, whether it is longer hair or a fuller style, and she will match the appropriate hair extensions to your hair color. Want to change your color as well? That is no problem as you can have the extensions dyed to match your desired hue. Based on how many hair extensions you are using, the process can take from one hour to several hours, as a qualified stylist carefully but firmly inserts the extensions. When the process is finished, your hair will look so naturally long and full that nobody will be able to tell that your little secret! Vancouver salons offer some of the best hair extensions in the world, so choosing Vancouver hair extensions will prove to be a smart choice.

Before you start searching Vancouver hair salons for you choice of Vancouver hair extensions you will need to decide the type of style you hope to achieve.

White Rock Spas

Whether you are a visitor, or a local, seeking to find an excellent white rock spa or white rock massage, you are in luck. There is a plethora white rock spas that offer some of the most pampering and luxurious experiences to be had. Most white rock spas offer a variety of salon services, such as manicures, hair coloring, and cuts, in addition to stimulating massages and spa packages. Each establishment in White Rock,has to live up to certain standards, and you can rest assured, that you will find one here that is perfect for your needs.

Finding a white rock massage service to ease away those aching muscles, will be no problem, and many spas offer various styles of massages, including traditional Thai, deep tissue, or RMT massages. Some spas even offer reflexology treatments, hot stone therapy, and herbal compresses to provide even greater benefits.

Facials are a common request in white rock spas, due to the drying properties of the air here, and rest assured, that there is no shortage of options in the realm of facials. Rejuvenating, re-mineralization, and mini-facials can bring skin back to life, and customized facials can be created for skin with multiple, or more complex issues.

Although there are many fantastic choices in the area when it comes to selecting a white rock spa, my absolute favorite is the Aru Spa and Salon, on 152nd Street. The Aru Spa and Salon offers a heavenly day spa package that offers a host of services, including rose petal adorned soaks in their traditional Japanese bath. Their wall-to-wall ceramic bath is decorated with lovely mosaic patterns, gently lit by soft candlelight.

Aru Spa and Salon is open on Sundays, which is unusual for a spa or white rock massage business. This establishment also offers special discounts and prices at various times throughout the year, which is a nice benefit. Valet parking is also included with any of the services there, and a delicious lunch can be ordered to accompany your white rock spa package. This white rock spa is a gem for those who desire couples treatments, where they can relax together.
Whether you simply want to have a few peaceful hours receiving some pampering, or if you require utilitarian services such as, highlights, hair removal, nail services, lash tinting, or brow shaping, you are in luck. White rock spas are some of the best in the area, and all of your relaxation desires and beauty needs can be fulfilled here.
