Client of the Month
Barb has lived in the Kirkendall Neighbourhood with her family for 40+ years. Although she worked in religious education, teaching, union services and at government agencies, volunteering has always been important in her life. From Home & School at Earl Kitchener to political activism to Boy Scouts to alley clean up and the Children’s Water Festival. Nowadays she spends a lot of time volunteering in various roles at The First Unitarian Church on Dundurn St. and supporting the growth and development of her 5 grandchildren. She has been a client at Kabuki since its inception. Alexis and her team regularly provide her with exceptional facial waxes as well as an array of other great treatments. She can always depend on their products to be natural, chemical-free and effective - they smell great too.
Mary moved to the neighbourhood in 1982 and has been involved in many community activities since that time including the Locke Street Merchants Association, St. John the Evangelist Church and Brain Injury Services of Hamilton. She has been a regular client of the spa since it opened. Mary appreciates the natural products, advice and services offered by the amazing staff. What she likes most is Kabuki's service to other members of our neighbourhood, far and wide, such as SASHA, Syrian refugees and greening the world. "I try to support local small businesses that are also socially responsible".
Meet client of the month Ravinder. Ravinder (Vin) Ruprai has lived in Hamilton, ON for twenty five years and graduated from the McMaster University Fine Arts Program with honours. Ruprai loves colour play and working with texture and pattern--a reflection of her East Indian heritage. The painting pictured was inspired by this past December's super moon. Vin loves coming to Kabuki for the natural products that we use and for how gentle her waxing experience is from start to finish.
