201 Hurst Drive, Barrie – 705 500-6303

Join us today at Beauty and Babes, where just a short drive or a bus ride to the Southeast end of town can have you in a Salon where the atmosphere is somewhat different.

Melissa Ferguson, owner of Beauty and Babes, fell in love with the beauty industry in a high school cosmetology class.  However, somehow she always felt that many salons weren’t as welcoming to all as they should be.  She also found that stylists and other support staff weren’t given the opportunities to earn as they should.  Melissa vowed to change the industry in this area to become a close knit group of business owners that worked together for the greater good.

Melissa has a talented team of beauty and aesthetic professionals trained in house to her exacting standards, offering a full range of both Salon and Spa services.

Whether you require a full body waxing, spray tan or hair extensions (Melissa’s own line), Melissa and her team have you covered.  Beauty and Babe’s clients love the relaxed, safe true family atmosphere and appreciate her skills so much that she received the 2016 Reader’s Choice Colorist Award.

This young lady, however, is putting her mark on our area.  Melissa sits on the Hairstyling Advisory Board of Georgian College and has now opened an accredited on-line training academy for Aesthetics, Dreadlocking and Hair Extensions.

Her shop, having to be closed during the Pandemic, actually allowed this dream to become a reality.

Melissa truly wants to see others succeed.  Her classes train not only the basics but also marketing, branding and sales.  This allows her students to actually meet their financial dreams.  As her students complete their accredited courses she works with them closely creating connections that encourage success.  By working through all the courses, students are able to create multiple income streams that can average out to approximately eighty dollars per hour, creating strong financial stability.  Better yet, the students can register for the courses at discounted prices as Melissa’s way of saying Thank you to the community.  At the moment her Eyelash Course, regularly $500.00 is on for a flash sale price of $197.00 until November 31, 2020.  Wow!


Melissa loves educating everyone about various areas in the beauty industry.  I learned so much about hair extensions and dreadlocking during our chat, all because of the passion and understanding that Melissa has for her industry.

So let the Beauty in your Babe discover all the varied services offered by Melissa and her staff.

Make sure to either call or make your appointment on line soon…ensuring the appointment time that suits you best…at Beauty and Babes!!
