Twisted Black Tie
We love to support Halifax Dance in all of their ventures and their recent Twisted Black Tie Event with Live Art Dance did not disappoint! Guests were treated to the first ever director's dance duel, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while raising funds through a silent auction. Life SalonSpa provided the hair and makeup for the interactive statues!

Homes for the Holidays
Creative Director Peter Lawson participated in the 2018 Home for the Holidays fundraiser for YWCA Halifax. While working with DIY Mom's Rebekah Higgs, Peter was invited to decorate the dining room in her home for the event! The entire home was very well coordinated, all while feeling authentic and lived in.
A special thank you to Pamela Zimmer, Big Eric's, Nova Scotian Crystal, Home Hardware, and Aveda Atlantic for their help in making this possible.
Halifax Dance Viennese Opera Ball 2017
This year, Life SalonSpa was a proud Silver Sponsor of Halifax Dance’s Viennese Opera Ball! Our stylists Devin, Justin, Barb, Robynn, Rachelle, Amy, and Helen, created the ethereal hair designs seen on the statues and debutants. Spa Therapists Nadine, Julia, and Jessica, created the makeup looks seen on the statues. Our teams enjoyed a magical evening supporting the arts and were treated to performances by the London Festival Opera, The National Ballet of Canada, and Symphony Nova Scotia.
"The artistic team at Life SalonSpa loves the challenge of re-creating fashion from decades past. The Viennese Opera Ball is among the most exquisite galas held in Halifax, one that takes guests on a cultural and historic journey to a far-away land. Prepare to be whisked off your feet, while dining and dancing in support of Halifax Dance."- Peter Lawson, Creative Director/Owner, Life SalonSpa

Aveda Atlantic’s 2nd Annual Catwalk
On April 17, 2016, as part of Maritime Beauty’s 50th anniversary, Life SalonSpa had the pleasure of participating in Aveda Atlantic’s 2nd Annual Catwalk for Water. This event is a part of Earth Month, and benefits Small Change Fund and local water initiatives.
True to the Aveda mission, our artists were asked to use reusable and recycled materials to create their high fashion entries.
Our talented team submitted four entries – from our Dartmouth location, Lenora, Ashley, and Lorri worked on a beautiful dress made from plastic spoons and aluminum cans; from our other location, Jade, Jenna, and Courtney did a gorgeous woodland fairy inspired piece using recycled Aveda posters. We would like to extend our congratulations to Devin, Julia, Joy, Nadine, Justin, and Trina W from Life SalonSpa Halifax for taking home Best Fashion and Best Overall with their two entries. Their Mission Dress has been sent to the Aveda Headquarters in Minneapolis to be featured in the Mid America Catwalk for Water show this October.
Thank you to all who participated and cheers to another great Catwalk for Water!
