Studios Vis a Vis is a small urban boutique spa located in Toronto’s Little Italy. We are situated on the north side of the legendary College St. just east of Ossington Ave. We’ve been serving the community for over 30 years and are proud to be one of Toronto’s oldest spas. Our ambiance is best described as being classy yet cosy and intimate without all the pretentiousness of a regular spa. All our aestheticians are professionally trained, have many years of experience and regularly attend continuing education seminars and courses in North America and Europe.

Spa Etiquette

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to ensure that the quality of service is not compromised. Late arrivals limit the time of your treatment. The use of cell phones is not permitted to preserve our tranquil environment. Children under 14 are not allowed into the spa or treatment rooms without parental supervision. This is due to the safety of your children and to maintain a relaxed and quite environment for all our clients. We are not responsible for any personal belongings left unattended as well as personal parking.


We’re germaphobes! We’re a bit OCD with cleaning. We guarantee the highest stands of sterilization techniques possible with every service provided. We use disposable nail and foot files, buffers, and spatulas. All tools are properly washed, soaked with a disinfectant and sterilized. We exceed public health recommendations. All treatment rooms are cleaned and disinfected thoroughly daily.



Please give us a 24 hour notice of any appointment cancellations to avoid the cancellation fee.  We require a 24 hour cancellation notice for appointment cancellations or a 50% charge (50% of your total services cancelled) will apply or be applied to your gift certificate.  We really dislike enforcing this policy, however, we are appointment based and any last minute cancellations are costly. It is difficult to replace appointment slot at the last minute, this results in a loss for the business and the aesthetician. Please be mindful of last minute cancellations. We offer courtesy appointment reminder calls which are the perfect opportunity to inform us of any cancellations.

Late Arrivals

Please inform us as soon as you can of any late arrivals. We will try our best to accommodate you. If rebooking or cancellation is required due to a late arrival, applicable charges may apply.
