“A Living Social deal for a Brazilian led me to Studio Vis-A-Vis. It's located close to College and Ossington and was easy to get to by TTC. When I walked in, my coat was taken and I was checked in within 10 minutes. There was no attitude regarding me being through Living Social (as I've had at other establishments) and I sat to await my appointment.

My aesthetician, Florbela, came out, showed me to the room and left to let me disrobe. The room was small but clean. As I waited for Florbela to come back, I tried to calm my nerves at the pain I was about to inflict on myself.  When she came back, she chit chatted with me while she got everything ready. I did enjoy the convo; it helped to keep me at ease. She used both soft and hard wax which I appreciate, because hard wax is essential for sensitive areas. We were over in 45 min;  Florbela was extremely thorough and I was as smooth as a baby's bottom when we were done. They had cream to get off the excess wax; I liked that there wasn't much wax leftover on my skin so cleaning up was easy.

I was pleasantly surprised by Studio Vis-a-Vis. I would definitely go back there when I'm thinking of getting another Brazilian.

Note: If you're prone to ingrowns, this is one of the few Brazilians I've had where I haven't had any.” - Nicole B.

“Very very pleasant, smells like essential oils, extremely professional staff. Wish I was getting a manicure. That said, least painful and least intimidating I've had in a while.” – Hilary K.

“Came to Studio Vis-A-Vis for a Brazilian via a living social deal. Front desk ladies were nice and courteous. Did not have to wait too long before I was brought in to start my wax.

Wish I had gotten the esthetician's name, but she was very knowledgeable in what she was doing. New wax and sticks used each time, and the room was clean and sanitary as well. A nice and welcomed touch was disposable underwear being provided.

Nice and professional staff, clean and sanitary environment, and great results. I'll definitely be back here for my next Brazilian.”  – Jess T.

“I love this spa! It's clean, professional, and affordable, and they always have some great promotion going on. The pedicures truly are the best in the city, and I'm becoming addicted to their opi gelcolor manicures. Waxing and laser here are also perfect. In fact, I've never had a bad service. Diana and Dina are the best, and Christina, Florabelle, and Jessica are awesome too.” – Priya G.

“What a great experience I had at studio Vis- A-Vis. Very friendly as I walked in I was asked would I like to have my jacket hung up. I waited less than 5 minutes before I went into the room. I received a Brazilian (using hard wax) and it was not painful at all. Florbela (the aesthetician) was amazing very friendly and was able to answer my questions about in growns. The place is very clean and has a great smell to it.

Bottom Line: Great experience. I will definitely  be returning and recommending this place to the public, my friends and family. “

Thanks Studio Vis A Vis   Mel”

“Came in here after purchasing a Living Social deal for a Brazilian wax. I've had a few nightmarish experiences in my search for a decently priced wax, but I was thrilled with Studio Vis a Vis. The salon is clean, the technicians are friendly, and they do a great job. I personally recommend Christina (and not just because we have the same name!)

To get extra bang for your buck, get your Brazilian done "on the budget" - come in on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, and pay only $30 for a Brazilian! They do other services on the cheap as well. The only catch is that you have to pre-pay for the appointment, and if you don't give 24 hours notice, you forfeit the money. But if you can swing it, I highly recommend it.

In short, this place is the rare but perfect trifecta of clean, professional, and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend it.”  –Cristina M.

 

“Had a great experience here for a bikini wax! Dina was my esthetician and she comes from a family of estheticians--her eyebrows are beautiful!  The environment was friendly and warm.  They sell products I am interested in --Jane Iredale.  I don't go for regular waxes so Dina made me feel really comfortable and the pain was not excruciating.  She told me when to take deep breathes so I know what to expect on certain sections.  Would definitely go back. They also have 50% off laser hair removal right now....”  –Leah D.

“I love it here. The staff is very professional and educated. I had a facial & manicure/pedicure combo, which I got as a birthday gift. Jessica, did my nails & Diane did the facial. Thank You, ladies!!!! Left feeling like a Queen. Been to some awful places in the city since, I've moved here, BUT my search is finally over. I've found a SPA/Studio to call HOME. Thanks Again” – Emma B.

“Love this place. They're super clean, professional and knowledgeable. Best facials! They have numerous skin care lines and treatments. They also have the best pedicures!” – Marie M.

 

“Myself, my husband, his brother, sister, sister in law and mother are all clients (As well as some friends I've shared my secret with) I see Florbela. She's fantastic. She has a very calming, soothing nature and is professional and sensitive to your needs. All the staff I've found are extremely friendly yet professional and very knowledgeable.  The decor is simple, elegant and healing without trying too hard or being pretentious.  I also love that over the years, they have consistently  updated and maintained the facilities. All the products they use are quality products. They don't try to pressure you into unnecessary treatments and are very caring and professional.

Facials: The only place I trust for a facial in Toronto. . When I go in for my facial Florbela does a gentle skin assessment, and listens to any concerns. She explains in advance what products she will be using and what they do. During the facial while your different masks are on she massages your hands, feet, back, neck and scalp.  She is always very professional and soothing. The facial beds are really comfortable with lovely linens and blankets to keep you from a chill. There is light music in the background and aside from extractions the lighting is dim. The facial usually lasts about an hour and a half. 

Pedicures: Incredible. A real pedicure in a spa bed with a fantastic leg massage. Very relaxing. The only thing I wish is that they had space for friends to go together for a pedicure. I have yet to find a place that offers a relaxing, quality pedicure (spa environment) that you can share with your friends.

Laser: Best prices I've seen, fantastic results.

Products: They carry the best of the best products (GM Collins, Guinot etc)

Price: The prices are more than fair for both treatments and products and they have loyalty rewards.” – Tasha Q.
