A new salon and spa opened in January in the Beverly area at 3910 118 Avenue, but the name behind it might be familiar to some people in the McCauley and Boyle Street neighbourhoods.

Timothie Hill opened his first location in 1994 at 9347 118 Avenue, which he ran for two years before moving to 115 Avenue and 87 Street two years later. He remained in that location for 11 years, with a brief interlude on Jasper Avenue and 117 Street.

However, in 2006 Hill, now 49, sold everything and moved to Salt Spring Island, where he lived in seclusion. The accomplished hairdresser, who says he gave his first haircut at the age of 16 and later studied at Marvel College, returned to the Jasper Avenue location in 2014 and is now at a bigger, better street-level location in Beverly.

“It’s a picturesque, wonderful neighbourhood and it’s not hard to get to if you use the ring road. I was in the area before and it treated me very well so I have good memories here,” he says.

The salon and spa provides haircutting, curling, texturizing, styling, with a specialization in colouring. “And creating beautiful styles easy for people to take care of and maintain at home,” Hill adds.

On the spa side of things, there will be a room for massage and one for things like pedicures and facials, all provided by experienced, licensed practitioners.

“I’d love to tell some old lost clients I still remember some of you. I closed my salon before [the days of] Facebook, so I would like to say hello to them and I still think of some of you.
