Dfons Barber Studio

dfonsbarber8
Dfons Barber Studio (718 17th Ave SW) is literally a cut above the rest. Recently celebrating its one-year anniversary, Dfons is the Ave’s barber for the modern man (and woman).

Owner Dayana has deep roots in the world of hair care. A frequent guest of her Grandfather’s barbershop in Portugal, the overwhelming feeling of warmth and friendliness left a lasting impression on Dayana as a young child. She knew early on she would recreate a setting that nurtured the same affection for friends and family as a place to relax and laugh together. And today in her own shop, the musky fragrance still brings her back to where it all began.

While tradition and quality of work here is a constant, Dfons prides itself on a fresh modern take on an old set of skills. Moving from Toronto just over a year and a half ago, the Ave has always appealed to Dayana.

“It’s where the energy is high, and people are friendly.”

A top a flight of steps off the bustling Ave awaits a relaxed environment, with good conversation and a feeling of family. But Dayana will be the first to tell you “what’s said in the chair, remains in the chairs!”

A variety of clients fill the chair at Dfons. The majority of clientele are men, requesting the trend of the day; “fades, fades and more fades”. Dayana offers the latest styles for men, but tailors each cut to the client’s unique personality and preference. With very affordable pricing, many women (surprise!) also stop by the shop looking for clipper cuts, short hair highlights, hair tattoos, trims and split end touch ups. Customer service and their exceptional reputation is their best kept secret in plain sight.

Services at Dfons include cuts and colours, to turkish waxing, hair rejuvenation and many current and upcoming promotions. Every first time customer receives $5 off any service or treatment, with feature pricing on “Beat the Recession” Tuesdays for $20 haircuts. Or receive a free head massage with any service on Sundays (what are you waiting for?!) and discounts for students and seniors. Tidy up after a long week with an express hot shave on Thursdays for only $30 and save your extra dime for a drink or two.

For a fresh cut or fade, with friends new and old, a stop at Dfons will make for a great story.
