The Best Hair Salons in Winnipeg

We looked at the top-rated hair salons in Winnipeg and rounded them up based on the following criteria:

Stylists and professionalism. Regardless of whether a stylist is fairly new or experienced, from junior to senior stylists, it boils down to their professionalism and how they deliver results.
Ambiance and cleanliness. Some salons have ample space and others are a bit more limited. Sanitation and comfort should be well-maintained regardless.
Customer satisfaction. We based this on customer feedback coming from sources like our customer survey, direct interviews with clients, and Google Reviews.
Fees and other related charges. Salons vary when it comes to quoting clients. We compared each salon with one another according to how satisfied their customers were with the cost they charged.

The Loft is a salon, spa, and bar – all in one! The boutique salon has been in business for over 15 years too, offering a wide array of services their customers can choose from.

The Loft has a diverse team of beauticians and estheticians capable of giving you pretty good pampering. However, we found that most of their junior stylists definitely showed their greenness in our sessions – you could tell they needed more time in training.

That said, there’s still a lot to like here. We especially enjoyed their bar.

After all, who wouldn’t want some wine while waiting for their turn on the chair, right? It’s just a really fun and unique concept that we wish more salons would adopt.

Their downtown location can be off-putting, however, and looking for parking spaces can be a bit difficult. 

Their equipment also isn’t as high-tech as what’s in other salons. Still, their hospitable and skillful staff along with the owner, Gerald, help to make up for it, champagne glasses in hand.

Overall, it’s always a fun time at The Loft, making it one of our favourites when it comes to hair services. They always make sitting still for hours an enjoyable experience.

Pros

  • Services are fairly pricedCleanliness of the place is well-maintainedStaff are notably professional and friendly

Cons

  • Some dated equipmentDowntown location can make it difficult for parking

Customer Reviews

All in all, we think The Loft is a good salon to go to for the usual hairstyling services. And we’re not the only ones who think so – here are some reviews from clients who had a great time with their stylists:

Wicked job

“After a long search for a stylist who would do a dope job on my very short hair, I booked an appointment with Heinz. He did a wicked job and was happy to take my hair to the next level.

The salon itself is very clean and open, with friendly staff and an easy booking system.

Don’t let the downtown location [put] you off from making an appointment, I was able to park directly outside the front door and there was tons of parking.

10/10 [would] recommend!” – Allyson Bannister

Did a very good haircut

“I had a very good experience with Gina. I wanted to do highlights to my hair, but before doing that she asked if I relaxed my hair or did other chemicals. We tried to do a small part before doing my hair and my hair rejected it. Instead, she did a very good haircut and made my hair shiny, soft and healthy-looking. I will definitely come again!” – Karyna Dianka

Verde Salon might just be one of the most interesting salons out there, being able to maintain a balance between luxury and sustainability. 

We absolutely love that the company tries to minimise its environmental footprint. That’s while still striving to deliver an exceptional experience – which we do think they usually pull off, thanks to their passionate and creative stylists and staff.

We like that their location has a spacious parking area, and the salon itself is so pristine, clean, and airy. The inside has a really calm and relaxing air to it, and a first step inside the salon already gives off that luxurious ambiance.

They’re also easy to find on all social media platforms and are very accommodating, to say the least, so making a reservation isn’t a hassle.

In our experience, their stylists always do a great job, regardless of new talent or not. However, because the salon tends to be packed throughout the week, some stylists tend to work in a hurry.

This is probably the only thing we don’t like about Verde: the rushed service and less optimal results. So, better book early to avoid rushing your stylist. 

Either way, a salon that stands by its principles in environmental sustainability is truly impressive. We all know the beauty industry isn’t one of the most sustainable, so we think this might attract quite a few environmentally conscious clients here.

Pros

  • Has a mobile app where you can book sessions, read reviews, look at services, etc.Well-established online presence that makes them easily reachableOnly uses cruelty-free products

Cons

  • Stylists tend to rush because of the demand for services

Customer Reviews

Integrity in beauty – it’s great! Other past clients think so too. Here are what some of their clients have to say for their immaculate experience at Verde Salon:

Salon was immaculate

“I had an amazing experience with Anna at Verde.  She was very professional and took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted done with my hair and she absolutely nailed it!  I was impressed with the Senior Stylist that assisted her and enjoyed chatting with her and listening to her journey in the business as well.  The salon was immaculate and was constantly being cleaned.  Definitely a 5 star experience!” – Brandy Lindsay

Great experience

“The service was excellent! I was worried about bringing in my 6 year old, that it might be an annoyance – but Katherine was very patient and adjusted (even kneeling on the floor!) to get my daughter’s hair done. She helped ensure my daughter got the haircut she wanted but was also able to explain to her why she recommended certain things (like not cutting her bangs even shorter) so that we will be happy with the cut long term. She was also helpful in explaining the other services offered (fringe trims), and the products available. I also loved the selection of locally designed hair accessories. The space was also clean, spacious and beautiful. Thank you for a great experience!” – Stephanie Van Deynze

Savile Row Salon is a luxury boutique salon that anchors their beauty philosophy to the tailors of Savile Row in London. The salon boasts of bespoke hair services and stylists with a reputation of being highly adept at custom hair styling requests.

True enough, we were immensely surprised at how Savile Row Salon delivered the exact colours we wanted when we tested them. We definitely think they’re the best when it comes to bringing your dream highlights and balayage to life.

Another nice thing about this salon is the way they present options to clients, we think. Hair talk can get technical at times, yet they never failed to explain everything to us and walked us through the process.

We think that’s something a lot of their clients appreciate, since some salons tend to jump right away to working without really consulting with the client. So, we love how everyone at Savile Row Salon is so patient, especially with 1-on-1 consultations.

True to their conviction of tailored beauty, Savile Row Salon definitely delivers the colours that a client wants. They’ll give you something better than what was in your reference photo – something that suits you best. 

Savile Row Salon is a dream, but it can be expensive one. Although we love everything about this salon, their prices are more on the high-end scale, which can be a concern for those on a budget.

Pros

  • Most individual stylists receive a lot of good reviewsVery experienced in bleaching and balayage colours Very clean salon

Cons

  • Colouring services are quite pricey

Customer Reviews

It can be difficult to look for the right stylist for you, but for both regular and first-time clients of Savile Row Salon, they only have good things to say about the stylist they had. Read what they had to say:

Wonderful stylist

“Alana is the best stylist around. From start to finish she did such an amazing job. She knew just what to do with my vague ideas and turned it into something I absolutely love. I can’t say enough about how much of a wonderful stylist she is.

Savile is such a wonderful, friendly environment and I love to spend an afternoon in the shop. Friendly stylists, great location and wonderful atmosphere.” – Haley Musick

Excellent experience

“My first visit was an excellent experience. I will definitely be back! I was very indecisive when I arrived and wasn’t sure what to do with my hair. I was treated with kindness, patience and professionalism. After my choices were explained to me, we came up with a plan. Awesome results.. Thank you so much..” – Eileen-Marie Caine

City Looks Salon has been in the business since 1996. Since then, they’ve garnered awards through their advocacy-driven service. 

This is definitely a must-visit for us. We just love a very inclusive salon that doesn’t only make their clients look good but makes them feel beautiful too.

One of the most remarkable things about this salon is their dedication to their wig services, by the way. They often cater to clients dealing with female pattern balding and hair loss due to cancer treatments, alopecia, or trichotillomania.

They also specialise in scalp care for clients with thinning hair and those who are regrowing lost hair. We love this for our friends who are experiencing difficulty in going to a salon for these issues.

Their expansive venue also has a relaxed feel, making it comfortable for their clientele. We find it reassuring that they keep the place spotless at all times, which is certainly crucial if you have clients with certain medical conditions.

Another thing we want to put out there about City Looks Salon is how meticulous they are with their wig services for hair-loss patients. We heard a lot of remarks from their clients about their compassion setting them apart from their competition.

Putting enormous focus on education, training, and mastery in their craft has served not only them but their clientele as well. After all, City Looks Salon is a multi-awarded salon for a reason.

Pros

  • Winner of the 2019 Top Choice Award for Winnipeg’s Top Beauty SpaFree consultations for wig servicesHighly inclusive array of services

Cons

  • Only open 5 days a week

Customer Reviews

From their inclusive set of services to superb hospitality, there are so many good things to say about City Looks and their advocacy. Here are reviews from clients with first-hand experience:

A wig that fit perfectly

“Losing my hair has been extremely difficult and upsetting. Deb took such good care of me! She worked to make sure I left with a wig that fit perfectly and looked exactly like my own hair (which I’ve been missing for months). Thanks to her hard work, I look and feel like myself again.

I’m so glad I got referred to City Looks. The staff is extremely caring.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone in my situation!” – Katherien Allen

Exceeded expectations

“Sarah is great! My hair has been perfect every time I’ve gone. I moved recently and had my last hairdresser for 17 years. I was really nervous but Sarah came highly recommended and has exceeded my expectations. And she is a really friendly, kind person. Salon is spotless and very professional.” – Dana White

Élan Hair Studio was first established in 2005, and since then, they have been an especially popular salon for colouring services, such as blonding, balayage, and colour corrections.

Renn, the owner and one of the master stylists, has been in the industry for over 30 years. That already gives you an idea of the degee of experience in this place.

The stylists we dealt with also showed the sort of patience and professionalism we’d expect from similarly experienced hairdressers. We love that they also made sure we felt comfortable and content at every turn.

As for the results of their work, we couldn’t complain. Their brilliant precision haircuts will likely see you back into one of their chairs again and again. 

Going from what we’ve seen from their other clients, their dimensional blondes, brunettes, highlights, and balayage seem equally stunning.

We were wondering how they get their colouring so perfectly, by the way, and it’s possible that it’s all because of the Schwarzkopf colouring products that they use. However, this may not be ideal for those on a budget (these are costly products).

Their pricing can get expensive even for other services. And some services, they charge by the hour, in addition to the products to be used. 

Fortunately, their website has a pricing section where you can get a quote for the services you’ll be getting.

Pros

  • Free consultationUses Schwarzkopf colouring productsWell-established online presence that makes them easily reachable

Cons

  • Slightly overpriced for colouring services

Customer Reviews

It’s no doubt that Élan Hair Studio is one of the best out there when it comes to hair colouring, and their clients agree. Worth every penny! Hear what they have to say:

Great experience

“My son and I had a great first visit at Elan. Owen took great care to cut our hair exactly how we wanted it, we didn’t feel rushed. I appreciate the Kevin Murphy product Owen suggested, it was exactly what I was looking for. Great experience, we’ll be back!” – Tim Shorten

Never disappoints

“Love this Salon! Friendly staff, clean space and an overall welcoming environment.

Cassie is incredible. She’s been doing my hair for years and she never disappoints. Go see her for all your blonde hair goals!”
