With over 18 years of experience received from working in Korea, TIDA Salon’s stylists offer a wide array of hair services for both women and men. They have also received training in creative haircuts from various schools, including Sassoon Academy in London.

The team here focuses mainly on Korean haircuts and styles. This makes them unique because they give you an eclectic set of choices, combinations, and a variety of hair colour options.

Some of their services include traditional and trendy haircuts, straightening perms, root volume perms, and updos. You can also request mini fringes, short boyish cuts, or a style similar to the most popular K-idols today.

While their focus on purely Korean-inspired hairstyles may turn away potential customers who are just looking for a simple, standard haircut, TIDA’s Salon does carve itself a nice position in its specialized niche.

Despite their K-pop fandom specialty, this salon simply aims to make you stand out and look your best. With a specialty in hair colour and perms, TIDA’s Salon is one of our top picks for the best hair salons in Edmonton.

Pros

  • Specializes in Korean-style hairstyles
  • Received international certifications and training

Cons

  • No extra spa-like services offered
  • More known for colouring and perms

Dubbed by Fashion Magazine one of Edmonton’s best hair salons, SOHO makes you look your best with prestigious services that focus on Parisian-inspired styles. With a luxury hair colour line from Balmain Hair Couture and their top-of-the-line balayage services, they strive to make every woman feel beautiful with a classic French girl look.

Founded by Carole Lemire, a certified master hairstylist, and educator, SOHO has been serving Edmonton since 2010. The hairstyling team receives continuous training and education in major fashion capitals such as London, Paris, New York City, and Los Angeles.

Having consistently received the Consumer Choice Award for Best Hair Salon since 2018, we are enamoured with the design of SOHO. Stepping into the salon feels like entering an apartment in Paris, with carefully handpicked decor and constantly rotating artwork on the walls.

Not only are the fixtures stylish, but they’re functional as well – SOHO’s Color Perfect LED Lighting system produces perfectly balanced light to help visualize accurate hair colour. This internationally recognized lighting guarantees that the shade you want is the shade you get.

Take note though that if you’re only getting your hair coloured, post-blow-dry services aren’t included in the quoted price, unless you pair it with a cut. Nevertheless, in the event you’re not satisfied with one of their services, they offer to adjust your hair colour or cut within 5 days of your original appointment.

Now, imagine being able to order a French cappuccino or latte while waiting for your hair appointment surrounded by the charming decor and a fancy ambiance. The attention to the little details is what makes SOHO one of our top hair salons in Edmonton.

Pros

  • Offers Paris-inspired cappuccinos and lattes
  • Chic design similar to a Parisian apartment
  • Owner is a master stylist

Cons

  • Tint services don’t include a blow-dry without a haircut
  • Expensive compared to other salons

Customer Reviews

Brielle Beauchamp was a new resident in Edmonton looking for the perfect salon for her needs. When she chanced upon SOHO, she became a loyal customer for life. She writes:

“First of all, these stylists are so welcoming and positive. Being a hairstylist who recently moved to Edmonton, I was looking for a salon exactly like this one! Amanda slayed my hair color and Diane took the time to give me a trim. I love the outcome of my hair, I will definitely be back. The atmosphere was very clean and everyone was professional.”

Kayla Tran, another client, is thankful she found SOHO, as she shares:

“I love Soho, they are the best, nice atmosphere and very professional. All the stylists are very knowledgeable and talented. My hair stylist Christine is so amazing, she knows exactly what I like and does an excellent job. I had been to many hair salons before, and I always got so disappointed about the results ( I don’t mind the cost ). I feel I was very lucky to find Soho and Christine after all”

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Friday: 9:00am – 9:00pm

Rock Paper Shears Hair Studio opened its doors in 2012 and has been providing Edmonton with its styling services ever since. With offerings such as the typical cut, colouring, texturing, and deep treatments that will bring your hair back to its healthy self, they ensure the best hair care for anyone getting their services.

Their Full-Service Package offers the complete treatment for your hair, which includes a full balayage, bonding treatment, haircut, and hair painting. It’s only recommended to do this twice each year and the procedure lasts around four hours.

If you’re just looking for maintenance for your current hairstyle, you can sign up for their Refresh or Trim, Tone & Treatment Package. This revitalizes your look with basic touch-ups which are recommended in-between getting the Full-Service Treatments.

We’re not a big fan of Rock Paper Shears charging $100 hourly rates instead of flat rates for their services. Nevertheless, the excellent results speak for themselves and are well worth the price.

Another one of Rock Paper Shears’ specialties is extensions, offering the micro weft and hand-tied sew-in method, inclusive of colouring services. You’ll need to have a free consultation with the stylist first, and take note that the cost of the extensions is an additional charge from the hourly rate of installation.

Pros

  • Offers specialized dyes from Sweden
  • Free consultations

Cons

  • Charges an hourly rate for services
  • Closed on weekend

Customer Reviews

Ashleigh Lebo is a long-time client of Rock, Paper, Shears and recommends it to anybody looking for a salon. She shares:

“I have been getting my hair done by Jess for the last 7 years. I haven’t lived in Edmonton since 2017 but she is so good she is worth travelling to! My hair is the longest and healthiest it has ever been…I am always 200% satisfied leaving my appointment. If you don’t know already, Jess is simply the best!!!”

Stephanie Asselman, another customer, is also a big fan of this salon and has nothing but positive things to say:

“Jessalynn is so talented and is continually educating herself throughout her career, which I admire. I cannot say enough positive things about Jess and her amazing talent! If you are looking for a new stylist, I absolutely recommend you see her ASAP!”

We like Carrie’l because not only do they offer salon treatments for your hair, but they also double as a spa that carries services such as massages, scrubs, exfoliations, and dermatological treatments, just to name a few.

Carrie’l also offers Great Lengths premium high-quality hair extensions, which don’t use adhesive in its application and have 14 custom-blended shades to choose from. Due to the complexity of this service, consultation isn’t free, and a non-refundable 50% downpayment is needed to secure your booking.

Nevertheless, we like Carrie’l because they offer a range of services and a loyalty program where each visit earns you points. Once you’ve accumulated enough points, you redeem these for special discounts on their services or promotions, whether it’s for the salon or spa.

Pros

  • Offers wide range of spa treatments
  • Has a loyalty points program

Cons

  • Consultations aren’t free for hair extensions
  • Inconsistent operating hours

Customer Reviews

Sarah Horricks visited Carrie’L for a haircut and was pleased with the results. She highly recommends the salon as she shares:

“Went in for a haircut with Emma. She was great and exceeded my expectations. 10/10 will be back and highly recommend.”

Jasmine Schaub, on the other hand, went in to try some of the other treatments, and was so pleased she’ll be returning in the near future. She writes:

“Went yesterday to get my eyebrows waxed and got my first lash lift and tint and I had Aleksandra as an esthetician. She was great! She walked me through everything she was doing and she was very thorough! While I was waiting for the lifting agent to work she even gave me a hand massage! I also get very red after my eyebrows get waxed and she was sweet enough to apply some powder to make me not look so red. Definitely my new place for my eyebrows! It was a little on the costly side but worth it in my eyes. She did such a great job”

Fresh & Co. Salons has been serving Edmonton since 2007, bringing its unique style of unisex hairstyles to the city. With expert stylists that have been trained on international standards, they’ll work with you on your optimal customized hair care regimen to complement your personality and style.

Whether you want a standard haircut that includes complimentary wash, scalp massage, and blowout or chemical treatment to make your straight and give it that sleek and shiny look, Fresh & Co. has you covered.

If you want more experienced stylists we suggest going to the Windermere or Mullen Way location, as they have more master and expert stylists on staff.

Nevertheless, all branches have a modern and award-winning interior design, that’s sure to make you feel welcome and optimistic about whatever treatment you decide to receive. While some of the pricing of their services are given after consultations, Fresh & Co. has a perfect balance of value and service.

Pros

  • Modern and chic ambiance in salon
  • Offers Kérastase Fusio-Dose Treatment
  • Three locations in Edmonton

Cons

  • Additional fee will be charged with any curling or flat iron styling
  • Many services are charged based on the consultation

Customer Reviews

Nic Mutlow is a long-time customer of Fresh & Co and has visited all its locations. This is her story:

“I have gone to Fresh & Co for years. I have been through all 3 south locations and seen many stylists. It always has been a great experience. I have now seen Magda at the Windermere location for almost a couple years and she is always a dream to deal with. So polite and helpful with all my questions. She is always giving me tips and recommending me the correct products for issues with my hair. I am very particular with my stylist and she has been nothing short of perfect since I have started seeing her. Her performance and attitude is reflected throughout the entire salon. The front end staff are always so helpful and polite. They are always quick to offer me a beverage, take my coat, and make me comfortable. I would highly recommend these salons to anyone looking for a friendly, accommodating, and professionally run salon.”

Chantel Barilla is a relatively new client, but it’s safe to say she is now a regular. She shares:

“I’ve been here twice now for haircuts and both times they have been amazing and very attentive. Everyone makes conversation and makes it feel like a very friendly atmosphere. They are willing to talk about the different products available and help you make an educated decision about what will suit you best. I love my haircut”

OPERATING HOURSTuesday to Saturday: 10:00am – 7:00pm

Mane Envy Salon is unique because it operates as a co-op of independent hairdressers that rent their working space. This is very convenient because it allows you to explore different stylists with varying specialties.

One of their areas of expertise is in diagnosing your scalp and hair to identify the proper treatment or styling that will be best suited for you. Part of the reason why Mane Envy Salon specializes in treatments is that the owners are full-time medical personnel, so don’t expect to see them manning the floor.

Nevertheless, their co-op stylists are experts in colouring blonde, ash grey, and bold colours such as vibrant red. No matter what the treatment, they strive to perform it without damaging your hair and scalp.

Although they are experts in colouring, they’re also skilled in standard haircuts, updos, and hair care. Each stylist has their degree of expertise, and you’ll be assigned a stylist depending on the treatment that you’re looking for.

Their prices vary in range, so to limit confusion, pricing is done by consultation with your preferred stylist.

Pros

  • Specializes in diagnosis and treatment
  • Co-op with independent stylists

Cons

  • Not much interaction with owners
  • Pricing is different per stylist

Customer Reviews

Nicole M. is a long-time customer of Mane Envy Salon and appreciated how they fixed her botched hairdo from another establishment. She writes:

“These guys are a great team of stylists! They are all great ! I had a botch job Hair do at a dif salon and Sheree spent the time repairing , colouring and carefully applying extensions to make my hair look 10000% better !”

Kim F., who went to Mane Envy because her stylist moved there, also shares her recommendation as she says:

“Melanie has moved from Ragged Edge to Mane Envy. Although she specializes in coloring, she is also very knowlegeable about cuts, styles and hair care. After over 20 years of coloring my hair, I decided to go grey. Melanie has been helpful in slowly cutting my hair and providing a wonderful shampoo to deal with dry scalp issues. I never knew I had been reactionary to the dye until I quit coloring. My scalp is healthy and my grey hair looks fabulous!”

Grateful Head Hair Studio is dedicated to the craft of hairdressing with a passion for using sustainable and environmentally friendly products. They have a wide array of hair products in stock that can help you keep your hair healthy while you’re at home.

This salon is also well known in the fashion and retail industry, often performing hair and styling for professional photoshoots and videos. So don’t be surprised if you see an event happening at the salon during your appointment.

However, their stylists will always make time for you despite balancing a professional shoot and teaching apprentices on the art of hairdressing. One of Grateful Head Hair Studio’s specialties is colour correction, which means fixing the colouring treatment performed somewhere else.

Pros

  • Owner is also a stylist and working the floor
  • Wide array of hair products in stock

Cons

  • Often fully booked
  • More specialized in commercial applications

Customer Reviews

Maureen B. is a long-time customer of Grateful Head Hair Studio and is willing to travel a great distance to go there. This is her story:

“Living in Calgary, I still drive up to Edmonton to see Nadine at Grateful Head. After much protest from my husband, a cut from Garrett showed him why I make the drive and he is now also a loyal customer. The number of times I’ve been told how great my hair is speaks to the talent of the stylists here – and they are stylists, not just hairdressers. Nadine’s ability to envision and create a style that speaks to the person and their individuality is impressive. In over 10 years I have blindly trusted Nadine’s vision and have never once been disappointed, always walking away feeling like my hair states exactly who I am. Don’t hesitate to trust your hair to this salon.”

Claude Dubé, another client, also shares her experience:

“Great salon with very friendly staff. Stylists are professional and make you look your best. I’ve been seeing Garett for years now and he always gives me a great cut. Awesome place!”

Studio Mi is originally owned by Justine Dreger, who opened her salon at only 23 years old and was able to learn the business inside and out. Today, one of her specialties is planning wedding stylings and events, where she travels between Canada and Mexico.

Kim Tran is also a stylist at Studio Mi and rose to the position of co-owner at Studio Mi, specializing in colouring. Together with Justine, they have a combined experience of over two decades in the industry.

Joining their team are Krystal Wolf and Jay Pham, a master colour expert and master barber respectively. Together, they round up the experienced team of this salon that offers a cool and relaxed salon experience that promises exceptional results.

Although their salon focuses more on colouring hair than styling, their focus on a specific niche lets them showcase their honed skills to their clients, whether they’re looking for a balayage, root touch-up, or foil work.

However, their real specialty is in bridal stylings, and if you’re getting married, we highly recommend visiting Studio Mi. Not only will you be getting the best updo, but they can help organize other phases of your wedding as well.

Pros

  • Highly skilled and trained staff
  • Specializes in bridal styling services

Cons

  • Small team of four stylists
  • Only offers styling and cuts; no treatment

Customer Reviews

Karlee M went into Studio Mi for a standard haircut and was pleased with her results. She shares:

Lucy Lei is a regular customer and goes to Studio Mi for coloring work. She writes:

Zouzou Hair first opened its doors in 2014 offering residents of Edmonton its premium hair salon and barbershop services. Owned by head stylist Joseph Hayek, they deliver a range of services with results you’re sure to be pleased with.

Although Joesph’s background is more rooted in barbering, he has educated himself to be knowledgeable in all fields of his craft. Whether it’s adding unique colour combinations or creating a hair treatment plan for customers, he’s got it covered.

One of their unique services is hair tattoos, although Zouzou hair uses the term to refer to trendy and intricate hair designs as opposed to scalp micropigmentation. This is one of their most sought-after services and has helped Zouzou gain a loyal following among the men of Edmonton.

We like Zouzou Hair because they offer a range of products to help you maintain and care for your hair at home regularly. From treatment rinses for fragile hair, handcrafted captain razors, to special occasion gift baskets, you can find something to take home for your loved ones and yourself from this salon.

Pros

  • Skilled in hair “tattoo” designs
  • Range of high-quality products sold in the store

Cons

  • More angled towards barbering
  • Some customers may find the space too small

Customer Reviews

Ryan Chan, a regular customer, always seeks out Joseph for his haircut. He writes:

“Shoutout to my guy Joseph man. Always gets my fade spot on and he helped me recently switched up my style which I am really liking. Also a real fun dude to talk to. I’d recommend him to anyone”

Emma Stout is another regular customer, who aside from enjoying the services at Zouzou, comes back for the personal service. She shares:

“I’ve been a customer for a couple of years now, and can’t recommend Joseph enough! He’s always got an idea to take a haircut further (asymmetrical cut? fun bangs? touch of colour?), but never in a way that pressures you. He’s also a blast to chat with, and I’ve heard the same good things from everyone I send there. Personally, I’ve gained so much confidence in my hair, and enjoyed every appointment along the way.”

Tommie Salon is owned by master stylist Tommie, established in Edmonton in 2013. She has over three decades of experience from various countries worldwide and has won the Canadian Hairdresser Mirror Awards as one of the top persons in her field.

Her handpicked team of professionals is composed of master stylists, master colour artists, and senior stylists who all have a passion for their craft. Although they specialize in bridal and graduation looks, they offer a range of services for a variety of people.

One of their unique services is New Plastic Smoothing Treatment which is an alternative non-Keratin system that helps keep your hair straight and shiny for a longer period. Although quite expensive, it can last up to five months without needing to be retouched and has anti-frizz properties.

Tommie Salon also offers non-hair cosmetic services such as makeup, eyebrow waxing, and eyebrow tint. Although these are ala carte services from their graduation and bridal packages, they include a “trial” or rehearsal session to get the look just right.

They also offer a range of colouring services from colour growth, balayage, designer highlights, and full-head toner, among others. Even though they only use products from the Color Me line of Kevin Murphy, these are all ammonia and PPD-free.

If you’re ready to book your appointment at Tommie Salon, make sure that you take note of their booking and cancellation policies. They require a minimum of 24 hours cancellation notice, and if you inform them under 12 hours before your appointment, you’ll be charged the full price of your booked service.

Customer Reviews

Here are some reviews from previous Blonde Brunette Hair Studio clients:

It has been a long time since I’ve had a cut… Covid and all… I visited the salon today and had Sarah as my stylist… I don’t much care for getting my hair done as I’ve had some pretty bad experiences in the past… I have to say, this is the best cut I’ve had in 10 years! Sarah was so easy to talk to and she understood what I wanted and followed through. She really listened to what I wanted and I left with the EXACT CUT AND STYLE that I wanted. Good stylists are hard to come by, and I just found mine. Thank you Sarah so much for the amazing cut and the comfortable experience. I will definitely be returning and I recommend anyone to choose her as your stylist– C.H.

The salon is fantastic! I felt like royalty. The fresh colours, the chandeliers, the candle lit ambience and the VERY luxurious fuzzy footstools were absolutely incredible! You also can’t beat the natural light that flows through, it really lets you see your new colour! Sarah was attentive and kind, she listened to my thoughts and we came up with a great plan for my hair. Sarah is very talented and will take the time to ensure your needs are met.
I highly recommend Blonde Brunette Hair Studio!! 10/10!!” – Chelsea P.

Energie Hair Studio Inc. believes that each hairstyle should depend not just on the person’s facial features but on their lifestyle as well. They place great importance on the consultation process to ensure that your final look complements you as a person.

This salon presents itself as an all-around salon, offering cuts, beauty and spa treatments. While we would have liked to see more intricate hairstyling options, their other range of services more than makes up for it.

Some of their beauty services include tinting, waxing and threading which you can have on the same day as your hairstyling appointment as well. They can perform these treatments on your eyebrows, eyelashes, brows, and entire face should you choose to do so.

However, their highlight here is the Aroma Body Polish, a 90-minute treatment that aims to remove all the dead skin cells from your skin. It’s finished off with an aromatic massage, which helps you leave the salon feeling refreshed and energized.

Pros

  • Offers complete all-in-one beauty treatments
  • Affordable rates compared to other salons

Cons

  • Perms and extensions are charged by the hour
  • Limited hair services

FAQs about Hair Salons

What should I do when trying out a salon?

When you are visiting a salon for the first time, it’s important not to ask for a very complicated style or a brand new look. You need to first establish a sense of trust between you and the stylist before you slowly progress to more daring hairstyles or cuts.

What’s the difference between gloss and toner?

Gloss is commonly used to enhance or revitalize your existing hair colour and may also condition it. Toner (sometimes called glaze) often lasts longer than gloss and is used more frequently to correct hair colour and give it extra shine.

What is balayage?

Balayage is a technique of highlighting hair that doesn’t use foils and comes from the French word “balayer”, which means to sweep. The stylist or colorist will paint the colour onto your hair by hand, giving it a smoother, more controlled but natural sun-kissed finish.

What is Olaplex?

You may hear your salon offering this treatment, which works by repairing damaged bonds of your hair at the molecular level. This product can also be used in tandem with other hair services, such as colouring, and you can even perform this treatment in the comfort of your home.

And now we’ve finally come to the end of our list of the best hair salons in Edmonton. We hope you found one to get your hair pampered the way you like it!
