Voted TOP NAIL SALON 2013 & 2015 by Ottawa's Top Choice Awards
Luxury Travel Guide's Day Spa of the Year, Ontario- Canada 2017 & 2018
”I just want to say that as a male I enjoy the upkeep shoppe for my couples pedicures. Anytime my wife drags me to get one, if it’s gonna be anywhere I’m glad it’s here. It’s even comforting that they ask me if I want polish as well. That shows they don’t discriminate or judge, even if it’s not my cup of tea. They’re always polite and courteous. My wife’s polish always lasts unless she is walking across the desert bare foot. Great value and service.
10/10 would recommend to anyone”

“The best nail salon I've been to! They serve you tea during your appointment, which is such a nice touch. I've had regular nail polish and gel polish done and both have lasted a really long time without chipping. I've left other salons before and had the polish chip that same day because it wasn't done properly. All the ladies who work there are super lovely. I'm definitely becoming a repeat customers. :)”

“I had my eyebrows waxed here. It was wonderful! The team are so helpful. The waxing was neat, clean, and smooth. They also taught me how to manage my eyebrow shape! Very helpful!”

“An exceptional and relaxing spa in the heart of Ottawa and Little Italy. Staff are professional, considerate, and well trained. The owner's attention to detail is part of the success of The Upkeep Shoppe. Natalie is always focused on providing a superior service and customer experience. A must try for any of your cosmetic or relaxation needs!”
— Julia S. Ottawa, ON
"Amazing!!!! I'm in love with the Upkeep Shoppe. Had a wonderful experience with Natalie who is very professional, experienced and knows how to provide a relaxing, therapeutic service. It's conveniently located on Preston, steps away from the office, so if you've had a stressful work week, I would highly recommend treating yourself to one of the fab facials..Plus they carry a natural/organic skin care product line, Naturopathica, which I just fell in love with. I've been using their products daily since my facial, and am stunned with the results! I usually experienced breakouts with my previous skincare products and have not had a blemish since I started using them 4 months ago. Seriously impressed. Would highly recommend both the shop and trying out Naturopathica."

"An upscale place for brow services, Nails and Hair Removal services. They have amazing facial packages."
— Dhara P. Ottawa, ON
"Just visited this place for the first time and was blown away by the whole experience. Their pedicures are by far the best in the city and, as a result, I will never go elsewhere. The neck and shoulder massage is highly recommended as an add on to any service. The staff are professional, the ambiance is peaceful, and the entire place is so clean. The cocktails on Wednesday evenings are an added bonus! Can't recommend this Shoppe enough."
— Vanessa P. Ottawa, ON
"I love the Upkeep Shoppe, I've come here several times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. I got married October 21, 2016 and came for some pampering the night before with my sister, and future mother in law. We all had manicures and pedicures and were thrilled with the experience and outcome. It's such a beautiful, relaxed feeling shop. And the renovations really have opened it up beautifully. I no longer live in Ottawa but I will definitely keep this a regular stop when I am in town!"
— Moriah T. Ottawa, ON
“So pleased with my Mani and Pedi . The foot massage was definitely a great touch and being asked to feel if my feet were smooth enough was a first. For this alone, I will be back! Thanks Sarah and Alexandria!”
— Paula W. Ottawa, ON
“Wow, what an experience! These ladies really know why they are doing!! The thing I loved most was that the entire atmosphere, while comfortable and extremely trendy, was drenched in information. Natalie, the owner, went above and beyond answering all of my question. She gave me a skin care regime that made sense and was so easy to follow because throughout the appointment she did a fantastic job explaining what I was doing wrong at home, what she was doing to repair it, and what I should be doing in order to prevent it going forward. I went in for my very first facial and came out, not only with a flawless complexion, but with the tools and information to maintain a clear face. As a man, there weren't many other places to go for information, Natalie’s gender neutral zone makes it really easy to get the knowledge to maintain a healthy looking complexion without making you feel like you’re intruding on a Steel Magnolias reunion! Kudos to Natalie and the entire team!! Thanks again.”

“Love this place! First of all, the decor is so classy and relaxing. Set up really well for groups too. There are two banquettes for pedicures, and they use the stainless steel basins (most hygienic!!) My feet have NEVER been so soft after a pedi. They use a special tea soak in the basin (teas are kind of a thing here), and then crystal files (I know because I asked - I’d never had seen something like that used before!). Usually after pedicures, my feet are soft for the first day, and then I’ll feel little remnants of the dead skin that didn’t quite get sloughed off. Not so here! 4 days later and my feet are still soooo soft. The main things to me with a pedi are taking care of rough/dead skin, the massage, and polish. This was a win on all counts. BEST PEDICURE IN OTTAWA! On top of that, I sampled the Coconut Chai tea - delish. I will return!!”

“A wonderful spa! Fabulous decor and atmosphere. I gave a manicure gift certificate to a friend, who just loved the experience. Plan to go there myself now!”
— Tina R. Ottawa, ON
“From my first visit, I’ve always felt very welcomed and have loved going to The Upkeep Shoppe. I refuse to get my eyebrows waxed anywhere else now, and the atmosphere at the Shoppe is just great. The teas are delicious, the gals are always oh so friendly, and I’m never had such great mani-pedis before. I love going back, and cannot wait for my next appointment!”
