Vancouverites, on the whole, are conscientious about appearance and personal grooming, and there are many salons and spas around the city offering hair, nail, and personal care services such as facials, waxing, threading, tanning, and more. Generally speaking, beauty services tend to be fairly high-priced in Vancouver, but the good news is there are lots of choices and prices do vary, depending on location and prestige. Hair and body products, sold at the salons and spas, are expensive.
