Adara Hair and Body Studio is a progressive, eco-conscious, creative salon for hair designers and guests to meet. We are always evolving while maintaining and improving our vast training education from around the world. We love the relationships we have created with clients through many combined years of experience taking care of people and their hair. We also love meeting new guests and doing everything we can to make their experience at Adara memorable. At Adara we also share local art and handmade jewellery and are always surrounding ourselves with creative energy.


At Adara we believe in equality, this is why we have a gender neutral pricing system, and are the first salon in YEG to offer this to our clients!


At Adara we aim to achieve a more responsible environmental impact by committing to being a certified Green Circle Salon. This entails the recycling of all aluminum foil, aluminum color tubes, hazardous aerosol cans and hard to clean plastics. Extra hair color get discarded in safe ways saving it from going down the drain into the already taxed water system. Even your hair is reused to create booms for oil spills or used for special projects with communities in need. We use environmentally friendly soaps and products whenever possible in the salon and we commit to making as many environmentally responsible choices as we are able. Our professional product lines Neuma, Paul Mitchell and Joico are environmental stewards and work sincerely to take responsibility for their carbon emissions. They give back through their production values and their environmental initiatives around the world. These companies are also in good standing with the PETA organization. Ask about our refill system for specific Neuma & Paul Mitchell and our ammonia free colour line.


We also proudly offer all aesthetic services including hair threading, and have a holistic health practitioner offering reiki and reflexology. Classes in meditation and reiki are held periodically.


We are always looking for new ways to serve our clients and the world better.
