Imagine a room with women who possess talent and covetable style, waiting to help you get ready for your big night out; therein you’ll find a chic, clean space called Pretty in the City. Located in mid-town Toronto, the staff at this beauty bar want you to have nothing but the best. They offer a great range of services in a spa setting; their affordable price points belie the quality and time put into each client’s appointment.
For the glamourpuss in us all, there are nail and makeup applications fashioned after the latest looks on the runway, or more subtle looks catered to your bridal party or cocktail-night crew. The girl-on-the-go can treat herself to a three hour appointment, allowing time to get refreshed for the weeks ahead with a no-chip, long lasting “Gelish” mani/pedi, waxing treatments, and a full makeup application. (If you have any hesitations about recreating the look on your own, you can also book an appointment for a personal tutorial.)
The Pretty in the City team will be most happy to help you unleash your inner flirt with their individual eyelash extensions. The services are specialized according to preference, whether you’d like a natural set or have your eyes on a “Superlush” pair. Owner Veronica Tran stays up-to-date with all the lash trends, and is one of the few in the city offering “lash lifts” – a service for those who would like to use their own lashes to create a long-lasting look.
With the comfort of wonderful company and conversation flowing, it’s hard not to fall in love with Pretty in the City’s team, always ready to pluck and polish. Your only problem will be setting the time aside for every indulgence.
Pretty In The City Lash & Beauty Bar, 2369 Yonge Street, Toronto.
