Recently recognized by the city of Toronto and covered by mainstream media, George lliadis has been cutting hair for 50 years. Older than most of the boulevard trees along the Leslieville stretch of Queen Street east, George is proud of his life and career.
George loves his birthplace in Greece, but Canada is home. He returns to Greece every year to keep up the connection to his roots.
Walk into George’s Broadview Beauty Parlour and you won't find floor-to-ceiling mirrors, there is no hipster music, no barista offering up coffee with extra foam half-pack Splenda vanilla spit-shot with a squirt of sugar-free cinnamon and extra room!
Walk into George’s and what you will get is friendly conversation steeped in a Greek accent, a Leslieville history lesson, a face-wrapped hot towel straight razor shave, an old fashioned vibro stim-u-lax shoulder massage and a great haircut.
