beauty tips

I went in for an underarm wax with a lot of hesitation- i have extremely sensitive skin and can't even shave. They were so kind, patient and considerate, going through what kinds of wax they use and what they think will work best for my skin. After the wax the staff continued to check in and make sure my skin was okay, that i wasn't in pain/ having a reaction etc. It was obvious that they all really cared about me, their concern was very touching. Also the facility is nice, clean and uncluttered, without an over-the-top overcompensating spa type environment. Will keep going back!read more

Chose this location for my first Brazilian bikini wax and I was happy I did so. Waxer was professional, friendly and proficient. Whole thing was less painful then I was expecting and I am very happy with the outcome. Will return here for my next wax.

Just had my first appt here, and I will definitely go back. Friendly service, and my aesthetician did a careful, clean job. Glad to finally find a nail salon in my hood that I like!

Came here with my friend. Great service. My friend and I got the gel manicure and pedicure but it’s a little overpriced. Our gel didn’t last beyond a week and a half.

I've been here a couple of times to get a gel manicure/pedicure. It's been an enjoyable experience each time. The place is clean and I'm happy with the results.I've only gone when I've been given a gift card. It is a bit pricier, so would maybe choose to go somewhere else if I was paying fully out of pocket.read more

This is an expensive pedicure, treat yourself! You are greeted by warm staff and placed in a seat, offered a beverage and left to enjoy the great treatment while watching cute movies (we watched two staring JLo). The staff are attentive, it feels much more detailed and precise than the usual Asian parlors I usually frequent.read more

After walking out of a nail salon last night because I sat for 2 hours unattended, I booked my first appointment here this morning. What a treat. The franchise owner greeted me warmly, had my station all set up with the color choices, took my coat and offered me a tea. The salon is beyond clean, the nail colors are beautiful and the manicure was very good. She regularly checked in to ensure I was happy with it. I am more than happy to pay a wee bit more to have a relaxing pampering experience in a clean and professional environment. Thank you so much and I will definitely be a returning customer. So nice to have a nail salon tin the neighborhood hat recognizes the experience is important to the customerread more

Update (Dec 21, 2018): I was offered a voucher for a gel mani by the owner, Laura. I was pleasantly surprised, and really appreciated the gesture to rectify the awful mani that I received from Tracy (avoid at all costs!). I was advised to book with Ranju, and I loved her! She was very kind, polite, and treated my nails very delicately. She also did a much better polish job/cuticle work than Tracy did. My nails are looking pretty fab. I will admit that the cuticle work isn't as thorough as I am used to from Korean nail salons, but I am overall pretty satisfied.Unfriendly staff. Nobody greeted me when I walked in. Polish job and cuticle work was the worst I have ever experienced at any salon in Toronto. I tipped exactly $3 just for the cost of the tea I was given. Nobody replied nor did they even bother to look up when I said "thank you" and started walking out. Will never come back here again.read more

Great location. Been to 3 different ten spots in the last few years and ended up settling down here because of the great service. I've been going to Tracy for 2+ years for my brows and could not be happier. Consistently knows what I need and does a fantastic job on the wax and tint and always makes me feel comfortable and beautiful. Highly recommend!!read more

I have been going to the Ten Spot Annex for the past two years or so and its amazing!! I alwaysssss see Tracy!!! because she’s just the best!! during every step of my pedicure/ manicure I am asked whether or not I am pleased with my service (water temp, length and shape of nails, pressure, nail colour etc) In a nutshell Tracy is a perfectionist!! also very friendly and hilarious! I fell in love with this location from my very first visit, staff are all so attentive, such great customer service! Great job Tracy and the rest of the Ten Spot Annex team!read more

I have to be honest, after reading some of these revoews, I was a little nervous to come in to my appointment. I was fully expecting to give this place a 3/5, but man oh man they deserve the 5/5. Everyone was super nice and friendly right from the moment I walked in the door to the moment I left. The women who did my services (Mani and pedi) was amazing. For the life of me, I can't remember her name however she did everything right. It was relaxing and peaceful and everything I needed on a Monday morning. I highly recommend everyone go in and get their relax on.read more

Great service. However, please offer more colours in the Essie gel couture line — specifically all shades of green (including lime and mint) and more yellows. The selection is far too limited now.

In the past few years, I have been a regular client at the Annex location of The Ten Spot . The reasons I keep consistently coming back are many. Not only is the standard of cleanliness at the beauty bar unparalleled, but also the staff are experienced estheticians, entertaining, friendly, knowledgable, and welcoming. If you have yet to book a service, I would highly recommend a visit to The Ten Spot.read more

Love this spot! Have been coming for years for different services and I always have a great time. Specifically I love love love Tracy. I get my eyelashes tinted and it was so hard so find someone who did a great job and didn’t burn my eyes, but she’s the best!! Just great all around, she always makes me laugh and she makes an effort to get to know her clients. Hoping she never leaves ❤️read more

We brought a party of nine in with four days notice, and Sophie was so helpful getting everything together for us. Once we arrived, the ladies could not have been nicer or more accommodating. A bonus - with Mean Girls on the TV - could not have asked for a better experience, and everyone’s nails look amazing!read more

Wonderful! My technician, Sophia was very efficient and nice and so was the receptionist. It was my first time for waxing and tinting. The entire process was so unintimidating and easy I didn't feel out of place! I loved the entire process.

Hey! This place is alright. Close, convenient, professional, and they give out free stuff sometimes (lip balm, Prairie Girl cupcakes, etc.)I can book online and that suits me just fine. 5/5 - will recommend!

My pedicurist did an amazing job and really took her time to make my toes look great. I felt safe & comfortable that all COVID-19 precautions were being followed and exceeded. Will definitely come back in the future.

I live in the neighbourhood and have come here off and on over the last few years. I can pretty much always get a last minute appointment and I know the place is sanitary. I do think their gel/shellac is overpriced, especially give that they charge an extra $10 for removal IF you are getting gel/shellac put back on (most places charge $5 IF they charge at all). That being said, I had a rather terrible experience last week - walked out and realized the nail tech had done the gel so far away from my cuticles that it looked like it was already a week old. When I went back in and asked about it, I was told by Tabitha who did my nails that it was normal (and she looked at me like I have 2 heads...) - I've been getting gel/shellac manicures for years and I've never experienced that, but i digress. I was pretty upset and sent the company an email. They called me immediately and offered me a full credit to make it right. Went back yesterday (since it looked like it was already 2 weeks old despite getting it done less than a week ago), and saw Gina - she was FANTASTIC. Very professional and it no longer looks like it is already growing out. I wouldn't say this is my go-to place, but they certainly made the situation right and for that they get 5 stars. Customer service goes a long way and there are many businesses in Toronto that can learn a thing or two from the Ten Spot Annex.read more
