There’s a beauty secret in Toronto all the It girls swear by and it comes in the form of a magical skin service by the city’s skin queen Victoria Radford. The multitalented Radford—who is the winner of Best Wedding Makeup Artist in our 2019 Weddingbells Wedding Awards—recently celebrated the one year anniversary of Radford Studio, her full-service salon in Yorkville and her team of amazing hair, skin and makeup pros are a favourite of haute brides in the city.
A treatment topping every bridal-beauty-to-do list is the incredible Hollywood North Facial, which was developed by Radford herself and will leave your skin with an otherworldly glow and finish akin to polished glass (people will stop to ask you what your secret is, trust). During the 60-minute treatment, your skin will be lovingly and masterfully cleansed, exfoliated and massaged. Radford was inspired to design the facial after learning of skin treatments in L.A.—the service incorporates low frequency sound waves and electrical current into the traditional facial mix. The star of the show is the application of Radford’s bespoke vitamin-rich 24K Gold Hydrogel Mask (you can also buy this and the Radford 24K Hydrogel Eye Mask to take home) which is cooled to zero degrees Celsius, helping to calm inflammation and boost circulation.
To take your skincare to the next level, you can opt for a customized Hollywood North treatment which involved a heightened level of pampering designed expressly for you. You can take your pampering a level up still with the Custom 24K Gold Hollywood North Facial which incorporates a gold skin roller into the mix and a bespoke home care regime.
