Pardon the dust, but we are on the move!
We are excited to announce that we will be moving to our new downtown location on March 23, 2023. We will continue to offer full salon services during this transition.
New Location: 736 Granville Street (The Vancouver Block), 8th Floor, Suite #818, Vancouver, BC. As part of our improved safety plan, you will need to buzz 0818 or phone/text 604.681.3341 to gain access to the building.
Please pardon the clutter as we move and settle into our new home on the 8th floor of this spectacular heritage building. We’re working hard to bring you a superior salon experience!
The Vancouver Block heritage building, topped with a large clock tower, has been a landmark near the intersection of Granville and Georgia streets since 1912. Boasting an Instagram worthy Edwardian style lobby, improved security, and a gorgeous view of downtown we just know you will love it as much as we do!

The criteria is that they have to work for you. We are constantly reviewing and adapting to make sure we have the best products that actually work.
