What People Are Saying


 "I desperately needed a hair re-style before starting a new job tomorrow, so called Esthetica on the off-chance. I was offered an appointment on the day I called and assigned Sherry as my stylist. I've been in Calgary 7 years and have tried numerous salons in the Acadia area with disasterous results but, Esthetica totally exceeded my expectations. Sherry immediately listened to my hair issues without being judgemental and she quickly understood my hair type. She exuded experience and confidence so, rather than tell her what I wanted, I decided to ask her make the decisions on length, cut, style, and products. I discovered Sherry is the Salon Director of Esthetica and, to be honest, this is the very first time I have returned home and did not rush to my bathroom to do a comb-out or try and correct my style with the kitchen scissors!! I absolutely love my style and the way I feel. Thank you Sherry, thank you Esthetica, and thank you for making me feel comfortable, confident and ready to face the world again. Love you all." (Shelley C.)


With the first step into this enchanted spa and salon, your senses are taken to a wonderful place with the warm aromas of burning candles, the calmness of running water from the live wall of tropical plants. We attended the open house prior to our appointment here and the owner actually gave us a detailed tour about the fine pieces of art, decor, furniture, and lighting, and of course the windows. All hand selected by Shirley her self when she traveled the world each year. Its a gallery and a museum worth a visit just to walk the halls. We were booked in for the fireside couples massage. And yes folks, it was as amazing as it sounds. We were brought into the change rooms, and selected our favorite fragrances for our aromatherapy hot tub soak in our private room, the water was drown for us and candles laced the room. The chapel style windows saturated the walls with decorative shapes and lines, just beautiful. After the soak, we got under the silky smooth sheets and blankets on our side by side massage tables. the beautiful massage ladies came in and began our hour long full body massage, it was so relaxing, they really took care of us. At the end they brought our hands together and told us we were done, it was so romantic and cute, what a nice idea. we slipped into our robes and sat at the fire place in our private room, that's right, a soaker tub, two beds, and a fire place with the most comfy lazy boys and brought us a delicious glass of wine, along with these indescribable chocolate caramel crisp cookies and a gift wrapped assortment of fine nuts for us to enjoy with our wine fireside. If I had to rate my experience here at Esthetica salon and spa out of 10.....We would give them a 11. (Kim McNeil)

I would like to share with you how impressed I am with ambiance and service I received at Esthetica. The most impressive is how welcome your receptionist Amanda is. She always makes me feel welcome, comfortable and she always has a smile on her face. I am also very with happy with laser hair removal and microdermabrasion i am having done by Jitka. Now my 15 year old daughter had her first microdermabrasion done too and and already loving the results! I will recommend Esthetica to everyone. (Rouba S)

I am a long-time client of Rima's; she is always so warm and lovely. I feel very soothed and nurtured by Rima's excellent care. (Penny L)

My Grandma died on Jan. 28 and I was scheduled to have my hair cut and highlighted on Feb 4 with my regular stylist (not at your salon). I needed to get in prior to my departure for Manitoba so I called around on Jan 30 and got in with Yvonna on Feb 1st. I was unusually quiet that evening and she was kind and professional (I started to chit chat later in the appointment though!) I eventually told Yvonna that I wanted 'nice' hair as I was headed to a funeral the next day and she was sincerely compassionate for my loss. She gave me a grand tour of the facility and escorted me to the desk for payment. She was attentive the entire evening and I did not feel rushed or stressed (as I have been at other salons). I also like the no tipping policy--not because I 'saved' money, but it just took that pressure off. Thanks for such a positive experience. I will be back! (Shannon G)

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service Chauntelle and I had yesterday!! We attended the charity event last night and thanks to Taylor and Mary's amazing job with our Hollywood Icon themed hair we won first prize - $10,000 to the charity of our choosing!!! The charity we chose is Kid's Cancer Care so thanks for your help, the charity benefited a little extra last night. Thank you and we will definitely let everyone know how fabulous your place and the staff is!! I have attached a picture of our outfits and you'll have to tell the ladies to watch for their handiwork in the Herald as well! (Sarah & Chauntelle)

I had the most satisfying body massage and exfoliating wrap ever! Esthetica is using a new product called Sea Flora, which is made from organic seaweed collected from the Pacific Ocean near Sooke, BC. Rima is an awesome esthetician. I could not stop feeling my skin after the treatment, especially my elbows and knees because they were so smooth and soft. I felt relaxed both physically and mentally. As I was so impressed with the treatment and the product, I purchased Sea Flora's facial products. I am loving the spa experience at home and look forward to my next body wrap at Esthetica.

I have been a client of Esthetica Salon and Spa for over 12 years. The staff are very professional, punctual and cheerful. The facility is always meticulously clean and the aroma of fresh flowers and fragrant candles is relaxing. The salon and spa services that I have received (hair styling - Shirley) (brows and pedicures - Rima) are excellent. I'm looking forward to being a 'spa diva' in their awesome new facility!
