Ombre Salon started with the goal to become one of the city’s best hair salons and we certainly agree they’ve achieved this goal. One of the main highlights of their service is that all of their products are made of non-toxic materials so you can be sure your health doesn’t get compromised or your scalp & hair don’t suffer from damages.

Anyway, they provide a wide range of hair services from haircuts to the permanent straightening of your hair. You can check out a full list of their services here.

This hair salon is open every single day which makes them ideal for those with busy schedules. You can just pop in when you finally have free time as long as you give them a call beforehand for same-day appointments.

To book an appointment with them, you can either give them a call or set an appointment with them on their website.

We’d like to mention that their services aren’t limited to those for the hair. They also provide eyelash treatments, skin treatments, laser treatments, manicures & pedicures, and massage services.

However, they aren’t offering any of their massage and eyelash services at the moment for the safety of both their clients and their specialists.

They also offer all sorts of products to help you care for your hair well after they provide you with their service. This includes special shampoos, conditioners, hairdryers, and the like.

Purple Jade Hair Design is a hair salon in Calgary that seeks to provide the best hair treatments and services around.

Due to the number of people who go to their salon, they highly recommend that you book an appointment with them beforehand to avoid long waiting times.

Now, one thing we love about their online booking form is that they show you the services offered, the hairstylist for the day, and even how long each service will take. This helps you know exactly how much money and time to set aside for your salon visit.

Some of their services include haircuts, root touch, balayage, ombre, highlights, perms, Olaplex, and many more. You can view the full list of their services and the cost of each service here.

However, these are just the base prices. To get a more accurate pricing for your specific hair type and length, you can book a free 10-minute consultation with them.

Take note that they don’t serve clients who aren’t wearing face masks so be sure to pack one in your purse or wear it before leaving home.

  • Free 10-minute consultation
  • Online appointment booking
  • Offers wide range of hair services

Customer Reviews

Amazing stylists, great experience

“I got a haircut and keratin treatment and I love the results! Sandra is an amazing stylist, I told her what cut I wanted and she made it into something more beautiful than I expected. I got compliments from friends and family! She also told me every step she’s doing and I appreciated that. Jade also assisted with my treatment and gave me lots of advice on taking care of my hair. I have hair issues and both ladies were very kind on giving tips on how to resolve it at home. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this salon to everyone.” -Mae

Extremely knowledgeable about hair challenges

“Best haircut EVER! I was lucky enough to get Jade herself to cut my hair,  she’s brilliant and extremely knowledgeable about hair challenges.  I can’t wait to go back.” -Tammy

With four different locations in Calgary, you can say that Redbloom has definitely left a mark on the people who live here.

Some of their services offered are haircuts, hair coloring, partial highlights, styling, express colors, and treatments. They also offer hair care and skincare products to help you maintain the level of beauty long after your appointment.

One thing we like about their rates is that it’s genderless, which sets them apart from a lot of hair salons. Their rates are based on the service, complexity of the hair, and the time spent providing the service which is a lot better.

You also get to choose the level of your stylist: there’s graduate, intermediate, advanced, senior, master, and creative director. The higher the level of your stylist, the pricier they are due to their expertise.

However, based on reviews, it seems that no matter the level of your chosen stylist, they’ll still provide you with great results. With that being said, you can check out the full list of their services and rates here.

They also offer unlimited blowouts for only $199 a month. All you have to do is book up to 24 hours in advance but for those who book >24 hours then you’ll get a 50% discount.

By the way, if you’re a first-timer at any Redbloom salon, you’ll be receiving $10 off. For chemical treatments or updos, you’ll also be required to make a 50% deposit due to the complexity of these services.

However, if you don’t want to make a deposit, you can always book a haircut appointment first and begin a relationship with them. All following appointments won’t require deposits anymore.

You should also know that Redbloom even has an Android and iOS compatible app where you can book, manage, and check-in for your appointments. You can also purchase products, see recommendations from your stylist, and more on this convenient app.

Pros

  • Has an app
  • Has an online shop
  • Offers hair products
  • 10% off for first-timers
  • Genderless service rates
  • Has 4 branches in Calgary
  • Has a  blowdry membership
  • Offers free hair consultations

Cons

  • Closed on Sundays
  • Does not accept walk-ins
  • Prices are relatively expensive
  • Only offers hair and makeup services
  • Requires 50% downpayment for first-timers

Experienced staff, pays attention to detail

“My favorite Calgary salon!! Very experienced staff, attention to detail, my stylist Sarah R. is AMAZIN” -Katanya Kuntz

Talented and creative staff, excess expectations, knowledgeable about all hair types

“Just one word. OLIVIA!!!! Ok, maybe a few more. TALENTED, LOVELY and CREATIVE! She exceeded my expectations!! I was in a hair rut and ready to try something completely different! She gave me the best color and cut I’ve ever had! I always had frizzy hair, or so I thought. Olivia’s skilled cut and recommended hair products revealed I just hadn’t met the right hair stylist. I have also brought my 3 daughters who all have completely different hair and she amazed even them!” -Keely Kaack

Notorious Hair Group is a boutique hair salon in Calgary that seeks to provide its clients with a comfortable and relaxed experience. One thing that almost all clients have to say is that the vibe in this salon is cool and it’s a nice place to vibe in.

The professionality and kindness of their stylists are also one thing that clients rave about a lot.

Their services are women’s cuts, men’s cuts, kid’s cuts, and hair coloring. Their minimal set of services is best for those who just want hair cuts or a quick change of color.

They also offer discounts but it isn’t on their website so you’ll have to call them up to ask about it. Another thing you can ask them about is their list of products they sell that also aren’t specified on their website.

One thing we love is they also offer free snacks and drinks to keep you occupied while waiting for your appointment.

To set an appointment with them, you can either give them a call or set an appointment with them on their website. All you have to do is fill up the form and you can even request your preferred specialist if you have one.

Take note that they’re closed on Mondays but are open from Tuesday to Sunday so it’ll still be pretty easy to find time to go and get your hair done with them.
