Beautylicious brings "affordable beauty" to Yorkville
Following in the footsteps of Winterlicious and Summerlicious, and executing a very similar model, Beautylicious is taking over Bloor-Yorkville beginning today (and running until November 4). This celebration of all things beauty features such spas, salons and clinics as Tru Vitality Clinic, Holts Salon and Spa, Pure + Simple, The Plastic Surgery Clinic, and Stillwater Spa, each offering discounts, deals, and extra perks on some of their most popular services.
Each participating venue serves up treatments at price points of $30, $50, $75 or $125, with taxes and gratuities not included. It could be chalked up to a marketing ploy on the part of the Bloor-Yorkville BIA, but it's also a breezy way to sample some spas and salons that might otherwise be cost-prohibitive (us regular Joes tend to blow out our own hair, pluck our own brows, and make a mess of our own nails, am I right?).
Under salon services, you'll find a $30 wash and blow at Blo Blow Dry Bar, which includes a complimentary scalp massage and rejuvenating hair treatment, or a $125 haircut and flash finish with Greg May himself at Greg May Hair Architects. Under the "spa-medi" heading, stand-outs include 3 service visits at The Brow House for $75 (including a complimentary collagen eye treatment), or the spa sampler at Stillwater Spa, which will score you a facial, pedicure and manicure for just $150.
If you're looking for something more intensive, Beautylicious' health and wellness packages include a 45-minute registered massage at Physiomed ($125), or one complete session of laser hair removal on two small areas of your choice for $50 at Tru Vitality Clinic.
While clearly targeted towards a female demographic, there are some services available for the gents as well, and available appointments are bound to fill up early (so act fast). Consider this your tender skin's last hurrah before the hunkering hibernation of winter begins anew.
