If you are in the Toronto, Ontario area and are in need of some beauty and hair products and advice, I have one suggestion for you: Toronto Barber and Beauty Supply. Also known as TBBS. A staple of the beauty and hair industry since 1937, TBS now has 5 supply stores located throughout the GTA.
What separates TBBS from other hair & beauty stores is its inventory of high quality products, its wide selection of products as well as its extremely informative and knowledgeable staff. Specifically at the downtown Bay and Dundas location, the staff at TBBS can effectively give you the rundown on all of the products they carry, which ones work and which do not. The products themselves include some of the best quality salon products in the Country. Who knew you could tint your eyebrows darker (or lighter) to match your hair color? I didn't know a thermal heat conditioning cap could be used to perform heat treatments that prevent damage to one's hair & scalp. Even the mulitple sale item bins offer unique suggestions at discounted prices so one can take a chance on a new hair product.
TBBS does not discriminate against men either. Be sure to find hair thinning treatments, hair and beard trimmers and well as hair dyes. Have a grooming dilemma and not sure where to start? The knowledgeable staff will listen to you and will be able to direct you to what will work best for you. And yes, they will direct you to the $25 conditioner, but they will also show you the $7 conditioner (plus maybe a sample of the expensive brand for future use). Also note: if there is a product you are looking for from a line TBBS carries, but they do not currently carry it, they will actually order the product for you, free of charge!
