Nothing like a day at the spa to help a gal feel pretty. Invited to partake in a little Linda pampering at Carte Blanche Spa I said of course. Honestly who wouldn’t love a day getting hair, make up and nails done? I selected the day we were heading to the VIP Event at the Ottawa Jazzfest. I mean let’s go really snazzy for a night out on the town.
Spa Carte Blanche
Inspired by the fashion abundance of European living, Spa Carte Blanche Haute Coiffure is an upscale destination salon and spa offering the finest quality service. Employing experienced, creative artists that train extensively in setting their own trends in order to create a long lasting relationship with you.
Established in 2005 they started out as a small salon and have grown into one of the biggest and most elegant salons in the country. Fully equipped with state of the art tools that are only available in the most luxurious salons in the world. Spa Carte Blanche Haute Coiffure is a world class salon and spa.
Carte Blanche has been opened in Orleans for awhile now, but hello Barrhaven. The newest location opened up on Strandherd in late May. I mean hello Barrhavenites have you tried it out yet? The latest in a line of great Spa’s, this one located West.
Walking into the location on Strandherd, you can not help but be mesmerized by the openness. that feeling of welcome yet spacious that invites you in. Friendly staff await and guide you through your experience.
Carte Blanche Mani and Pedi
I began my experience at the Mani Pedi area. It did not seem appropriate to us the word Station as it does not seem descriptive enough to capture the spaciousness. Turning myself completely over to the wonderful staff. Immersing myself in the experience of someone else pampering me.
Before I get to my mani let’s talk facilities and equipment. Not being an expert on the whole manicure process I was still impressed. Mind you throw a bunch of white furniture and equipment together with a splash of purple and I am hooked. Such a fun area, one I can easily picture relaxing by oneself or sharing an experience with a bunch of friends.
It is actually such a relaxing experience to sit and have someone massage your hands. Toughest part of this process selecting a colour. I actually went with shellac in a vibrant blue and some sparkle and guess what? Mani is still going strong. It has been three weeks and I am still loving the look
Hair at Haute Coiffure
Quite the philosophy, believing in the transformational effect that gorgeous hair can have on the way we look and feel. They believe that it is something that everyone should be able to benefit from, not just a select privileged few. With award winning stylists at every level we are here to make the celebrity experience available to all.
At Carte Blanche Haute Coiffure and Spa the focus is on pleasing you. Not wanting to restrict your personal hair vision to one set price. Through an in depth one-on-one consultation with your stylist, you can discuss service options and prices that will exceed your expectations.
I turned myself over to Alyssa completely telling her to do what she wanted. Well except a cut of course, you know me no cutting without prior approval.
One sad fact I forgot to get a picture of the actual Hair Salon side and I loved it, shades of white and red.
Alyssa is a marvel, understanding exactly what I wanted. I then moved to brows and makeup and totally zoned out. Nary a picture of that experience although did ya watch my stories? There was a play by play on the gram. No matter I am heading back on July 17th to help them showcase the Salon on TV. Maybe y’all will catch me on CTV between 7 and 10.
And hello, this was me the day after my big experience. The hair survived Jazzfest and a lot of rain and humidity.
