Tim Fray has always been interested in business branding and having an interest in a clothing line came about after his older brother and sister in-law started a kids clothing business back in the late 80's. Tim became involved in the clothing business with a store front on St Claire Ave in Toronto but due to a move down south to Orlando Florida Tim had to give up the store and business. BlaqIce is a name that was given to Tim during his time in Florida in the early 90's and he decided to trade marked the name to be used in the future. Well the future is 2020/2021, Blaqice Apparel will be launched in Toronto.

The Traveling Barber was developed in 1991 by Founder, Cameron D. Fray. 3 years before that in 1988, Cameron was cutting his brothers hair. By 1990 he bought a full set of tools and started an apprenticeship at Castries Barbers in Toronto. In early 1991, he got a job at Cut Creator in Scarborough and developed his craft there. It wasn't long before Cameron realized that it wasn't just about cutting hair but also catering to people's needs and respecting their valuable time. Traveling after work in rush hour, long line ups, nowhere to sit, waiting for over an hour with kids screaming, Cameron said, "enough is enough".
As a licensed barber Cameron decided it was time to rebrand his business and teamed up with his entrepreneur brother, Tim Fray owner of Hospes Group. Cameron and Tim believe that "What you put into the business is what you will get out of it". Their vision is to treat others exactly how they want to be treated.
The Traveling Barber was re branded as 'Traveling Barber GTA' and has launched with anticipated needs for those that want a professional cut without everything else that goes with preparing to make that journey to a store and back. Your time, that you will never get back. Look out for us, we're 'Coming to a head near you!'
