I just want to make sure that this is passed along to the salon/spa manager. I booked in for a service this week (Tues). I was in for a pedicure with Naomi. To start, I called the same day to book and was greeted by a wonderfully friendly receptionist and you were able to get me in the same day within a couple hours. I really appreciated it. As for Naomi, shes an absolute gem! She was very professional and a perfectionist. I am typically the type to sit back and not chat a all but she was very easy to chat with and definitely brightened my up my day!
I just thought you should know!
” My wife booked an appointment at Sykea Spa which is located right in the lobby and she said it was the most relaxing massage she had ever gone for. She said the spa was beautiful and the prices are SO reasonable!”
I have curly blonde hair (thick but not wiry) and needed a new stylist. Its often hard to find someone who knows how to property cut curly hair. But, one trip to see Christeen at Sykea had me SOLD! She knows curly hair and how to cut it! She’s also got a great ‘bedside manner’
I left there feeling beautiful, and knowing I’d found my new sytlist! Thank you Christeen!
Stella is the best eyebrow waxer, not just in Halifax, but possibly Canada. It’s been 3 years since I left Halifax and I’ve yet to find a better brow-shaper in Toronto and beyond.
I’m super picky when it comes to eyebrows. Not just because it’s such an important expressive facial feature, but a bad eyebrow shape or colour is just such a terrible, terrible thing. It’s blinding, you can’t look away! It can ruin an otherwise good-looking girl or guy’s face. (Sidenote: Men, don’t over-shape your brows. It’s very noticeable.) If you’re not convinced about the importance of a good eyebrow shape, that suits your face, then I give you this: http://www.wackyarchives…
My own can take over a year to recover from a bad over-waxing or an asymmetrical shaping, so that makes me very hesitant to just put them at the mercy of any overzealous waxer.
That will never happen if you visit Stella. She has a real talent for shaping eyebrows to make you look better than you ever thought you could look. I’m talking about ‘receiving compliments on how nice your eyebrows look’ kind of good-looking. She’s also like an eyebrow doctor for people with broken eyebrows. She’ll tell you how to work towards repairing and growing into a good eyebrow shape, even if you’ve been waxing them to high heaven for years.
She’s worth every penny! I always joke with friends that I would fly back to Halifax just to get my eyebrows shaped but I’m not sure that I’m actually joking.
This is one of my favourite salons. I go to Katie Lake there for my hair and she is fantastic, young, spunky and open to chat about just about anything. The prices are very reasonable. The staff seem to have a great camaraderie. It’s a great atmosphere without pretension. I try my best to get all of my haircuts there!
To the wonderful employees of Sykea!
I can’t say thank-you enough for our wonderful experience at Sykea!
Living in Ottawa I was not sure where I should go for my wedding hair and
make-up. I was so happy in December after my fantastic hair and make-up
trial with Katie and Naomi.
I was very confident after my trial that Sykea was the perfect choice for
beautifying everyone for the wedding!
The day before our wedding, my new husband and I spent the morning at the
spa. We both received massages and manicures and I also had a pedicure. Eva
provided us both with a wonderfully relaxing massage (that we both really
needed!) and Naomi did a beautiful job with my manicure and pedicure. I am
not sure who Scott saw for his manicure but it looked great! Also, Katie was
so kind to trim some stray hairs that were bothering Scott from the hair cut
he got in Ottawa!
On the day of the wedding, you were so great to take us all early – which
helped us to be ahead of schedule!
My three bridesmaids and my mom had their hair done at the spa and my mom and
one bridesmaid also had their make-up done. We were all very pleased with how
everything turned out! I couldn’t have been happier with my make-up –
thanks to Naomi, I don’t think that it was obvious that I didn’t get a lot
of sleep the night before the wedding. Katie did an amazing job with my hair
– it looked even better than I imagined it would and it stayed put all day
long! To top it all off, Corissa even escorted me back to my room so that I
wouldn’t accidentally run into my soon-to-be husband!
You all made us feel right at home at Sykea and it was such a wonderful start
to our wedding day!
I will send you some photos when we get them from our photographer so you can
see how everything looked.
Thank you again for everything!
