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 Announcements Regarding COVID-19

We wanted to let you all know that we are still open and excited to provide all your hair and aesthetic needs!! Our staff are very proud of the bubble of cleanliness we have created and are efficiently upkeeping all day, everyday. We are spraying, wiping and sanitizing all the time. We now have Lysol disinfecting spray for our furniture and all magazines have been removed. You can have confidence that we are doing everything possible to keep our environment safe for everyone in our Gilded Pear family, clients and staff alike.
In order for us to continue to do our part, we need you to do your part too. If you have a fever or cough, please reschedule your appointment when you are feeling well. The Government of Alberta is emphatically stressing that anyone returning to Canada MUST self-isolate for 14 days, even if you are feeling well, therefore we must ask you that if you have been away and have an appointment scheduled within 14 days of your return that you reschedule it. Our staff are also following this 14 day self-isolation expectation by the government and we do have staff who have cancelled their out-of-country travel plans.

Along with our top notch sanitizing of stations, tools, furniture, hands, high traffic areas we are now limiting salon to 50 people and under at one time. We have juggled around appointments so that that peek times we are not to high in numbers. Thanks to those who helped us do this by coming first thing in morning while it’s slower in salon.

With your cooperation and us all working together, we will get through this.

Announcement: Salon Phone Number Compromised

Please be advised: Our phone number has been compromised and we are getting a lot of extra calls on our phone line due to the phone scam going on with our business line. This has been going on for about 5 weeks and we have been told from our phone service provider that there is nothing that can be done about this and that it will eventually stop. This has been very frustrating for us and very sad to see that people can scam other people so easily.
If you cannot get a hold of us due to busy phone lines please do not hesitate to email us at
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you so much for your understanding.
