Vibe Hair Designs specializes in creative cuts and colouring. Whether clients need a full haircut, a bang trim, or highlights, the stylists first take into account the face beneath the hair, thereby ensuring that the new hairdo is flattering to the eye colour, face shape, and skin tone. They also beautify with Japanese perms. These, much like "lawn art," are oxymoronically named, because they actually straighten hair.
In addition to hair services, Vibe offers waxing for faces and bodies, as well as mani-pedis with traditional or shellac polish.
The seasoned stylists at Follicle Hair Salon & Spa can cater to almost any beauty request. Standing before black-and-white chairs, they clip chic haircuts, then steep strands in rich colour or smooth them with keratin. They embellish nails with organic acrylic gel that lasts far longer than traditional polish, and smooth away fine lines or persistent smirks with microdermabrasion. Aromatherapy massages leave patrons relaxed, completing the spa experience.
While other 10-year-old boys spent their free time practicing slap shots and trying to teach bugs to do their chores, Danny passed afternoons and weekends at his father's barbershop. He'd sweep the floors and run errands, all the while admiring the time-honored craft that his father learned during his training in Italy. Danny would go onto study these same barber techniques under the tutelage of his father and at a local hairstyling school before eventually opening up a barbershop of his own—The Barber's Chair.
Tucked among the bustling shops and upscale restaurants of the Vaughan Mills mall, the barbershop is an oasis of old-world comfort and calm. You can find Danny and his seasoned staffers two-stepping around the cushy barber's chairs, snipping up haircuts while exchanging cheerful anecdotes and jokes. After a refreshing trim or luxurious hot towel shave, the barbers treat clients to cups of simmering espresso.
The stylists at Alleyne's Grooming For Men employ old-fashioned barbering techniques to give clients the aesthetics of a modern gentleman. The vintage interior includes traditional leather and chrome chairs, which cradle visitors during their session (see building tour here). Using massage oils, hot shaving lather and heated-towel compresses, techs polish men's faces and sculpt hairstyles more masculine than Thor’s racecar collection. The staff specializes in helping men appear elegantly at important events, such as weddings and job interviews.
Fusion Salon & Spa
Fusion Salon & Spa serves as a tranquil getaway from the stresses of everyday life, welcoming in men, women, and children for a soothing slew of beautifying and relaxing treatments. From chic cuts to vibrant colour treatments and perms, Fusion’s stylists offer a variety of hair care services for women, and trim men’s beards after Paul Bunyan Day. Clients looking for extra indulgence can retreat to the spa for a customized facial, a detoxifying body wrap with exfoliating Himalayan mineral salt, a pedicure that pampers with warm lava stones, or Swedish and aromatherapy massage to relax achy muscles.
A mod chandelier hangs over the salon counter like a crystal earring, casting a honey glow on steel-grey floors and walls the colour of marshmallows. Amid these cozy accents, Beauty Now's skilled stylists snip away split ends and gild strands with high-end Goldwell colour products. But hair styling is just one strand in the salon's ample coif. Rounding out Beauty Now's 2,000-square-foot space is a facial-waxing studio where staff remove hair from upper lips and brows.
