Reopening in the Glebe: Beauty salons, Massa and tattoo studios

June 23, 2020 | by glebeadmin


As businesses begin to reopen in the Glebe, it’s more important than ever to support the local economy. We have put together a new blog series highlighting local businesses as they reopen in the neighbourhood.

This week we are focusing on day spas and beauty salons to help you turn the relaxation level up to 11.

We know just how tough the last few months have been on everybody. That’s why we’ve put together a list of place where you can get that long overdue massage, physio and chiropractic care, as well as your favourite Glebe spots for laser treatments, waxing services and mani/pedi sessions. While spas are not permitted to perform facials, most other services are available.

Need some new ink? We’ve got that too – one of the best tattoo studios in the city – right here in the Glebe.  Read on and support our local merchants during this challenging time.

Please remember to continue to practice social distancing while shopping in the Glebe to help limit the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of our businesses, their employees and their customers is of the utmost importance.
