Barbarella Spa is a boutique beauty spa in St Henri. They are one of the first to bring trendy and affordable spa experiences to the younger fashion forward demographic. The same one that has most recently occupied this neighbourhood in Montreal. Girl boss and creator of the unique space, Ashlinn Cassidy, first started years ago when she was spray tanning clients in her apartment. She was booking them and bringing them into her home .... up until the demand was too high that she needed a space, and this was the birth of Barbarella Spa.
The spray tans here have gained in popularity for a number of reasons, you look and feel great, they have amazing staff and spray tan artists like Steph (my go to girl!) and the product is all natural. I've even heard stories of people going for spray tans to give life back into their look while facing cancer treatments or other sickness. The idea of a spray tan goes far beyond tanned skin, it gives confidence and allows you to experience your trip or adventure in a different way. Personally I love to spray tan before big events, or before heading on a trip. I can focus on other things like finding the best restaurants or the highest rooftop without thinking about where my tan is coming from, sounds crazy I know, but it has become part of my travel routine.
Here are a few shots of me at events with my awesome Barbarella spray tan glow. Oh and did I mention how awesome and nice the staff is. They try their hardest to fit you in and cater to the needs of their clients all the time. For someone like me who has NONE of that (time) it is necessary and appreciated. You leave feeling happy and beautiful even with a last minute 8:45 the night before a trip spray!
Unique about this spot, every time I go there is a different pop up shop happening in the front of the space. Sometimes it is lingerie from Alice Kass (LOVE THEM) and sometimes it's ice cream (yum)! Great idea and incredible use of their extra space in the front. I love to see businesses that can think outside the box.
They also offer a number of other services such as eyelash extensions, manicures, pedicures and waxing!
