Parlour Hair Salon Ossington Toronto

From Brothel to Beauty Destination

For years I would walk by 6 Ossington Avenue and wonder what was up with the derelict second story space. There were dozens of old bikes littered outside and I never saw anyone enter or exit the premises.

So, when earlier this year I noticed that new windows had been installed and the inside was all white and glittery I had to do a triple-take. Gone is the reportedly old brothel/rooming house and in its place is Parlour, a new socially conscious hair salon started by two ex-stylists at Coupe Bizarre.

Check out photos and my Q&A with one of the founders of Parlour in the fashion section.
