ABOUT US

Owners Gabrielle & Ryan Barber had the dream to create a boutique salon that offered a low chemical alternative to haircare while focusing on providing a friendly and relaxed salon experience.

Opening in early 2013, you will find an inviting interior hidden away above the bustling city streets. Quality espresso coffee or T2 teas are offered as you relax in this urban retreat for some pampering.

Whether it be cut, colour, hair treatments, styling, or make up, the team at Agape will have you looking your best as you walk out the door.
