If Old Man Winter has got you feeling down, take solace in the fact that there is tons of fun stuff to do inside and outside. These Edmonton attractions and winter festivals will immediately perk you up.
If you’ve ever worried about shampoo chemicals or wondered what happens to your highlighter foils, you’ve likely realized that hair maintenance is tough on the environment. Many salons are dedicated to environmentally friendly, sustainable practices, such as recycling and using ammonia-free hair dyes. These hair studios make being eco-friendly chic and easy.
Threading, which originated in Asia, is all the rage in countries all over the world now. The technique, which involves using a looped thread to twist and yank a row of hairs from the follicle, is popular for the precise results it offers. Plus, threading works really well on people with sensitive skin, such as those on Retin A or Accutane. These Edmonton spas offer threading for eyebrows and more.
