These four Canadian salons have really upped their design game by transforming out-of-the-box locations into extraordinary spaces.
Elevate Beauty Lofts, Etobicoke, Ont.
elevatebeautylofts.com, @elevatebeautylofts, Designer Tonya Brown
In keeping with its minimalistic design, this boutique-style loft’s ultra-feminine design is filled with tons of natural light, with modern design pieces including wood and golden accents carefully curated to make guests feel at home. While it operates as a full-service hair and esthetics salon, it’s no surprise that the stunning space is often used for events.

Putting the “bar” in barbershop, this black- and-white space welcomes guests with a coffee bar at the front and a three-chair barbershop, offering cuts and colour, located at the back. Its clean, industrial design coupled with a hip, west-end Toronto address has made it a hot spot for private events and parties.

Go big or go home! This expansive 16,000 square-foot commercial-residential space is surprisingly airy and filled with natural light. With its reception area on the ground floor, guests are treated to a full-service salon, spa and coffee bar on the second floor. An added bonus: the salon has its own indoor parking garage and balcony.
The House of Blond, Vancouver
houseofblond.com, @thehouseofblond, Designer Sarah Braim
This loft space was designed with independent hairstylists in mind, offering them a truly #Instaworthy workspace filled with modern furniture fixtures, exposed brick and abstract artwork. But it’s the spectacular views of the North Shore Mountains that truly make this space unlike any other. While guests can book appointments with House of Blond’s artists, the space is also popular among hairstylists for chair rentals, educational workshops and photoshoots.
