For over 40 years, Vincent’s Den for Men has been serving the Kingsway area of Etobicoke. At Vincent’s it’s simple – a great haircut, in a fun, friendly, comfortable atmosphere.
The Vincent’s story began in the early 1970’s, when a barber shop – Vincent’s Den for Men, was founded by Vincent himself.
In the early 1980’s, a young John Freda growing up in Etobicoke, was looking for his career path. He decided to try accounting, but quickly realised it was not for him. While spending some time with some hair stylist friends at the local mall, he discovered his calling – hair. He immediately enrolled at Bruno’s School of Hair Design in downtown Toronto. After graduation, John worked in a few local shops in the Bloor/Royal York area of Etobicoke.
In 1983, John responded to a job listing in the Toronto Sun for a hair stylist at Vincent’s Den for Men. He went in for the interview and within a few hours, he was on the floor working.
In 1989, Vincent decided to sell the business. John was ready to take the next step in his career and decide to buy the shop himself.
More than 25 years later, John still owns and runs the shop and his love and energy for hair styling has only grown. He and his experienced team offer great service to both men and women; of all ages.
His clients range in age, from as young as 1 year, to those in their 90’s. Many of his clients first came to Vincent’s as children and continued to return to John and his staff as they grew into teenagers, then adults; still continuing to return today.
