Take time for you at Ritual, Toronto’s head-to-toe beauty bar and glam haven.

Ritual Beauty Bar in Toronto

Ritual, an upscale hair, skin and beauty bar located in the heart of King West in Toronto, was the passion project of Maria Cristina Bruno, co-owner and brow and makeup artist, and her partner, Bruno. “We bartended together and wanted to start our own business that combined our love of beauty and people,” she says.

The feminine and clean design of Ritual is based on a black and white colour scheme with hot-pink punches and marble accents. It features 23 treatment areas, including eight hair stations, six mani-pedi stations, three makeup stations and six treatment rooms. After clients pamper and beautify themselves from head to toe, they can browse the well-stocked retail area, which features professional-level hair, makeup and skin-care lines and unique jewellery designers.

“We really want our guests to be able to continue their Ritual experience at home,” says Bruno. “Without the professional-quality products, this wouldn’t be possible. We wanted it to be very communal and group friendly because we host many corporate and bridal parties, but we also wanted the upstairs to be an urban oasis where you can escape the busy city and partake in a relaxing service in the sanctuary of our treatment rooms.”
