Our Story


Bode's journey began with the tranquil haven of Little House Spa, nestled away from Ottawa's bustling streets. Here, amidst serene wilderness and impeccable services, both women and an increasing number of men found refuge.

These men shared stories of their struggles in seeking nurturing spaces for self-care, where refusal, mishaps, and even ridicule were all too common. Little House Spa, however, stood apart as a sanctuary free from such negativity.

In response to this growing demand, Bodé Spa emerged in 2004, ushering in a new era of inclusivity and specialized male grooming in Ottawa. Finally, a haven tailored to men's unique needs had arrived. By 2015, Bodé had expanded its presence, opening a second location in downtown Toronto.

Throughout two decades of companionship with men, we listened attentively to their skincare journeys. Their feedback inspired us to embark on a mission in 2019: crafting skincare solutions specifically addressing common male concerns. Our products not only deliver effectiveness but also provide a delightful user experience, devoid of the pitfalls often associated with drugstore offerings and without the exorbitant spa price tags.

Fast forward to 2023, and Bode embarks on a new chapter under the leadership of Paola Girotti, renowned for her successful venture, Sugar Moon Salon, which celebrates inclusivity and diverse presentations. With Paola's expertise complementing the visionary legacy of Daniel Francoeur and new addition Michael Major,  Bode's brand is poised to expand and franchise, bringing Bode, Smooth Confidence, Tailored for Men to new horizons.
