Frequently asked questions
WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF STYLISTS?
All of the stylists at GUIDE work on a Performance Based Level System. The level the stylist is at is based on PERFORMANCE, EDUCATION and DEMAND OF THEIR TIME.
The level system accomplishes two main goals. The first is to provide a career path of growth and achievement for our team. The second is to provide several options for our clients to choose from to suit their budget.
We are constantly learning and growing as a team, and are confident in knowing that you will be in great hands with any of our stylists!
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
You can either book your appointment online HERE, or call the salon at (306)974-4247.
If you are not able to find a spot online, give us a call. We often can accommodate better over the phone, recommend you to another one of our stylists or add you to our waitlist in case something opens up!

WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON KIDS?
We love children; we even have some of our own! However, so that the ambiance within our salon remains as relaxing as possible for all of our guests, (many of whom are enjoying some time away from their little people), we request that another form of child care be arranged outside of the salon environment.
With this being an escape, we think you know best if your little person will suit our environment or not. If they do, amaizng but please note that we do not have children's pricing. If you need a referral, we are more than happy to give you one until they are ready to become GUIDE groupies too!
