Yes! Perfect for any gift, we have reloadable gift cards that never expire. All gift card purchases come with a Carte Blanche gift bag and tissue paper. Note: gift cards are treated like cash, if lost or stolen we cannot replace or refund them.
Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please provide 24 hours notice. Cancellations made with less than 24 hours notice are subject to a 50% charge on your account. All group bookings require a Credit Card to reserve an appointment.
Due to Covid-19 please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment to allow for check-in procedures and to fill out our new Covid intake form and have your temperature taken. All facials, microblading, laser and spa medical treatments are required to fill out a questionnaire. Should you arrive late, time will be deducted from the service. Cell phone use is not allowed in the spa we try to keep a quiet atmosphere and to not disturb other quests. It is not recommended to bring children under the age of 6 to the spa, however well-behaved children are accepted in the spa on the less busy days such as Sunday and Monday.
We offer 4 spa packages, ranging from $80-$325. Spa Packages are discounted up to 35% off regular priced individual services. Packages are priced per person and cannot be split between clients and all services must be done on the same day.
*UPDATE* Regarding Covid-19: we are following all recommended protocols and guidelines provided by Ottawa Public Health, including but not limited to: salon & spa at 50% occupancy, use of every second station to ensure staff and clients are 6 feet apart. All staff and clients are required to wear face masks at all times, and protective shields or goggles when in the treatment rooms or when the client needs to remove their mask ie: upper lip wax, facial etc... Surfaces and washrooms, door handles are all cleaned regularly if not after each client. We have allotted 15 minutes of cleaning time after each spa treatment to thoroughly clean the room and/or station used. Please be patient as it can cause a short delay. It should also be noted that clients cannot linger in the spa after their treatment, but are free to wait at the front reception area for 15 minutes post treatment if waiting for their polish to dry or to finish their beverage.
Carte Blanche has passed a health inspection as of June 2019. All Spa implements that are used on clients are cleaned with soap and water and soaked in PREEMPT CS20 (a high level disinfectant of 7% accelerated hydrogen peroxide) for 10 minutes. All staff have two sets of stainless steel implements so that the same tools are never used twice in a row. All Pedicure basins are 100% stainless steel with no jets and are washed with Lysol and running water, sprayed with Accel TB and left for 5 minutes between EVERY pedicure. All surfaces used are cleaned with Lysol and Sprayed with PREEMPT RTU. Our staff are trained on up-to-date sanitation and disinfection methods within our industry and we take cleanliness and sanitation very seriously.
For most of our waxing we use a creamy soft-wax with cotton strips. Our soft wax is gentle and effectively removes hair. We have one esthetician who uses hard-wax which does not use any strips/does not pull as much on the skin. This is great for extremely sensitive skin as it doesn't remove any of the top layer of dead skin, only the hair. Hard-wax is only used on the face, underarm and bikini areas. If you would prefer hard-wax please specify upon booking.
YES! We are happy to host events and group bookings such as bridal parties and birthdays. Groups of 5 or more get the Spa essentially to themselves and are welcome to bring decorations and catering. Group rates are also available.
For any inquiries on spa group bookings contact our team at email@example.com

At Carte Blanche we provide our clients and staff with a safe, chemical free atmosphere. We do NOT do Acrylic nails or use gel with any strong smell or chemical. We use Bio-Sculpture Gel which is a natural based 100% gel product. Safe for your nails, it offers 5x the strength of your natural nails, can be filled every 3-4 weeks and is soaked off for removal. Extensions (adding length) can be done and are sculpted one by one with sculpting gel (requires a minimum of 2mm of free edge for extensions to hold). OPI Gel Colour (gel polish, like Shellac) is also offered and can last up to two weeks.
Prices are located in our "Services" section. Note: If you currently have acrylic or gel nails on from another spa we ask that you remove them there before booking with us. We do not use drills and cannot remove acrylics and certain types of gels.
