Hastings Barber Shop

Hastings Barber Shop

I came across this barber shop in Leslieville last weekend. The painted lettering has the warmth and character of something made by hand.

Visually the words “Barber Shop” dominate, but the much smaller words bracketing “Shop” have a quiet impact: “Look Better” and “Feel Better”. It’s an acknowledgment that there’s more to a haircut than meets the eye.

The Venetian blinds provide the perfect backdrop, complementing the retro flavour of the sign.
