Come In, Relax, Get Pampered
Make Joyride Another Stop On Your Adventure
The Joyride Concept
Joyride is a wellness inspired salon and spa. Our concept is simple: we deliver a quality mani pedi and facials in a stylish, non toxic and environmentally friendly atmosphere. We believe a modern beauty studio shouldn’t be hard to find, and take pride in raising the bar with a refreshingly refined experience for Vancouverites – an effortless escape. Whether having your nails and facials done is a regular ritual or a special occasion treat, our mission is to elevate this little luxury by ensuring you are comfortable from beginning to end. Come in, relax, and get pampered and polished; it’s another stop on your adventure.
The Joyride Experience
The Joyride experience is all in the details, without complication. Like your coffee with almond milk? We want to get to know you! Can’t remember the name of that polish you had on your toes for your best friend’s wedding two years ago? Want products safe for your little one? Leave that up to us! We are proud to use an all-natural, organic line of exclusive Joyride products from beginning to end of your service. Our products are 100% pure and natural, hand made locally in Vancouver. With an extensive range of nail polish brands we stand by (3 Free, 5 Free, 7 Free and 9 Free options) and 450 colours to suit your mood, the choice is yours and we’ll remember your favourites! And, so you aren’t scuffing up your fresh paint job on magazine pages, we’ve gone digital; an iPad loaded with the latest glossies is available at every station.
Come to Joyride to catch up with friends, chat with your favourite Joyrider, or just have some alone time.
Choose your joy, take the ride. We can’t wait to meet you!
The Joyride team is committed to providing a clean, healthy environment for our clients to hangout in. That means all natural (almost) everything. All of the cleaning products we use are natural, non-harmful to the environment, safe for our staff, and for you! Fresh is best, and we want to keep the air quality that way too. Through a purification system we’re striving to ensure you breathe easy during your visit to Joyride. We also make sure we are kind to mother Earth and strive to be a zero waste salon. Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask!
Because we wanted to make sure we were only using the best product line at Joyride, we created our own! From the beginning of your mani pedi to the end of your facial, technicians will use our exclusive Joyride line of all natural, plant based products. Essential oils, butters and certified organic ingredients go into our soak, scrub, lotion, wash, bubble bath and oil as well as our scrub, face balm, serum, mask and toner. Keeping it local, the line is also formulated and manufactured in Canada! And, if you’re like us, you are partial to a fresh smelling candle. So, we created our own, with a signature Joyride scent.

Inspired by her early roots in Central Asia, Zarina obsesses over two things: health and beauty. When she was pregnant with her son she became more mindful of ingredients in personal care products and realized that Vancouver lacks holistic beauty space. This led to what Joyride is today, a sanctuary of wellness and self care, serving vegan and nontoxic nail and skin care treatments with a difference.
With a background in international development and microfinance, Zarina is passionate about poverty alleviation and women’s empowerment. She brings that passion to the Joyride experience by creating a unique Vancouver experience full of beauty, inspiring women, and chock-full of safe and natural products.
