OUR AMAZING team

 

Brittney Banks 

There is a reason that Toronto’s Queen West was voted by Vogue Magazine as the second hippest area in the world. Its private label shops and fashion-forward crowd combine to create an area with character and uniqueness. The neighbourhood deserves to have a rustic yet chic hair salon that fits the vibe of the area. And now it has one.

Hailing from Prince Edward Island, owner Brittney Banks wanted to spread her maritime charm throughout the Queen West community.

Hair By Banks beautyBAR combines hair services, shopping and spray tans with "Bronzed By Bloom" while offering a unique over-the-bar (or private patio in the summer months)nail and make up service for pre-booked parties. You can have all of this while enjoying an environment that features loft-style high ceilings, exposed brick, fireplace, and beutiful large patio.  

Don't have an appointment? Pop in anyway, come say hi, come check out the space,shop and hang on the patio with a drink and we can figure it out from there.
