The Gilded Pear Will Continue By Appointment Only

With Stage 2 restriction lifts to be starting in Alberta, the government is saying the salons can open up for walk-ins. We have decided that we are going to keep our door locked and will only be by appointment only. We are doing this because our front end is not very big and if we have a flood of people in, we will not be able to maintain social distancing which is still required by the government.

We have been operating this way for a very long time and it seems to be working quite well. So until social distancing isn’t required by the government, we really have no choice but keep our locked door.

We look forward to one day having our front open and our furniture back up front, serving you coffee or tea while you read magazines. Until then, we are doing our best to keep everyone safe.

Thank you for your understanding and your patronage.


The Gilded Pear Shut Down – December 12, 2020

Well here we go again. So this Saturday  December 12 at 6 PM we will close our doors until we are allowed to re-open which hopefully will be in January.

Please watch our Facebook for information on how to reschedule appointments for January when we reopen hopefully.

We did email last time during our spring shut down and that worked rather well so that will probably be the way we will proceed.

Of course from now until we reopen we will be doing curb side pick up A couple days per week. Please email Bonnie at

We will be posting this quite often during the next couple of weeks with some specials that we will have put together for curb side pick up for Christmas gifts.

Please remember we are still doing our gift certificate special as well. Those can be picked up, or mailed out, next week with all of my extra free time I might even be doing some delivery.

Please stay well everyone, let’s get this COVID under control.

Thank you for all of your support during this time.

The Gilded Pear 2020 Charity Campaign

This year The Gilded Pear charity campaign will be collecting cash donations for the Mustard Seed.

Due to COVID and space, we will not be accepting any items.

Donations will be collected from November 2nd to December 12, 2020. The cast donations will either be used to shop for items needed or they will be given to the Mustard Seed directly.

The money will be used for the following:

-Shelter support on the southside and westwood


-Art Supplies

-Food Support

-Making Christmas special for individuals without healthy family networks

Family Gift Centre:

-Purchase of Toys

The Family Gift Centre is an initiative for parents unable to access traditional gift options (homeless families). Parents/caregivers can come in and shop for toys that are all $2.00 each, no matter the toy. It gives dignity to parents to be able to pick out a gift for their child and say they bought the item.

The Gilded Pear to Reopen on June 1, 2020

This has been quite a ride… It is with a lot of thought and investigation and stress that I have decided that the salon, hair side, will not be opening until June 1, 2020. I am writing this as I just don’t feel having the stylists start this early is morally right. We are a large, close-knit staff and we care for one another. I really feel our safety is number one. We are going to lose money. I am okay with this. I don’t want to lose any of my friends. We hope that all of our very best, most awesome clients will understand and support this decision.

PLEASE NOTE: Appointments are now by phone call to the salon only. Emails will no longer be accepted (updated May 29).

Thank you,

The Gilded Pear

The Gilded Pear Relaunching Plan (May 2020)

Dear Gilded Pear Clients,

With yesterday’s official announcement regarding the province’s reopening on May 14th, we have been overwhelmed with your enthusiastic inquiries as to when you can book your appointments.

We are excited to reopen and see you as well as serve you again!

This opening in mid-May (date to be confirmed) will be regarded as a “soft opening”.

  • This means that we will be operating with less staff to ensure safe distancing practices.
  • Therefore, your stylist’s regular working days and times may be different.
  • We have been doing our best to be proactive for all the new protocols/guidelines that we are required to follow, however, it is taking time and effort to prepare.

It is important to us to ensure the safety of our staff and you, our valued clients, therefore we KINDLY ask for your PATIENCE at this time as we plan and prepare.


  • All clients that were booked in March, whose appointments were canceled due to the closure will have first priority booking.
  • Clients that booked ahead for May will still have their appointments.
  • We are currently creating a call list. Your request will be answered in the order in which it is received.
  • Please call the salon to make your appointment.
  • We need your name and phone number.
  • Tell us your stylist’s name and the service you require.
  • We WILL be calling you to give you their available time to book.

As an aside, we’d like to mention that not all staff is comfortable with the issued reopening date.

We are working on how to resolve concerns in a respectful and compassionate way.

We have staff members that are high risk individuals and we want to address their needs and concerns as we move forward to our opening.

We GRACIOUSLY thank you for your loyalty and patronage.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Stay well,

Management & Staff at

The Gilded Pear
