Beauty abounds with new shops in heart of Bayview

Plus, self-publishing in the modern age


Published:

Salon de elephant is no stranger to the connection between hairstyling and art. The hair salon opened last month and was named after a Salvador Dali painting. “He wanted it to be more memorable,” said manager Karen Chan, referring to the name owner Calvin So picked for the shop. Salon de elephant offers $30 to $45 haircuts (5311 A Yonge St., 647-349-7299).

 

The History of Whoo & Ohui is a luxury Korean cosmetic shop and spa opened by Winstin Nam a couple months ago, near the Yonge and Finch area. “It’s pure Korean skin care,” said manager Michelle Kang. The cosmetics take into account the Eastern philosophy of yin-yang harmony, using products that balance the skin (5514 Yonge St. #3, 647-350-3748).

 

Fifteen years ago, when Biz Shoppe Ltd. first opened, owner Eric Brill offered a typewriter rental. Much has changed. Now clients come to self-publish a book. “A lot of people are on computers writing their own books now,” he said. The shop offers services such as colour copies, book binding, and the option to print on coffee mugs (5334 Yonge St., 416-225-6321).

 

For Added Beauty, which is celebrating a 10th anniversary, business has been good. In fact, owner Sam Kim said every year things get better. The store has added more beauty lines, and more international items. The store carries professional lines such as L’Oréal, Schwarzkoph, Pureology, and new line Moroccanoil (5151 Yonge St., 416-229-9611).

 

Canaan Drapery, which opened last month, is a one-of-kind drapery shop. The family business offers drapes, window coverings and all the trimmings, including custom design. “Each one I make is a different style,” said owner Sam Cho (5427 Yonge St., 416-226-6977).
