We carefully chose our brand partners as our brand ethos and promise to our clients is always of utmost importance. We pride ourselves in offering a space where our planet and our community is never compromised. And nor is your beauty.
Our Colour line and Hair care Products are Exclusively Davines. They are devoted to the sustainability of our planet and your hair. They are family owned, in Italy and a BCorp Company. We have been with them since we opened.
"The formulations favor the use of ingredients of natural origin, are generated with renewable electric energy and packaged minimizing the environmental impact, inspired by the ideal of Sustainable Beauty as an inseparable unity between Beauty and Good."
we also offer a bottle return for 10%off your next product.
and we offer a bottle refill program on most shampoo&conditioners we have in stock.
We carry select World Products for in-salon use. A clean beauty and Salon Brand, made in Canada, based in Toronto. A scent free hair care option for clients while in-salon. Clients can purchase these products in bulk, across the street at Saponetti (mentioned below).
We Make Beauty Beautiful by managing our Salon waste with Green Circle Salons Recycling program. An international program that diverts tons of salon waste every year. A Canadian company and a BCorp. We have been with them since we opened.
with their help we are able to recover and/or re-purpose 95% of our Salon waste

For our in-salon complimentary beverages we have partnered with Genuine Tea Co. and Propeller Coffee Co.. Both are Toronto based companies believing in fair trade direct with the farmers.
We also offer a selection of juices from Loop and/or Greenhouse Juice Co. for sale.
When it comes to all beverages and snacks offered within our space, we make an effort to choose sustainable and/or local options, including our alcohol service.
For our daily cleaning products we have partnered with Saponetti, a refill for sustainable products. This partnership allows us to dramatically lower plastic waste from buying new bottles of cleaners (ei: multipurpose, glass cleaner, laundry detergent, hand soap, dish soap, etc.). And we can trust that the ingredients are safe for our guests and the environment.
Entering our space you will quickly find, we do everything we can to be mindful of our actions, our space and what we leave behind.
