We will be closed June 20th, 2015 for Parade Day in Okotoks and will be back in on Monday at 8 am. Have a great weekend!
Cactus Club Salon & Spa was established as a Salon in Olde Town Okotoks in 1991, adding a Spa a few years later. We are proud to have been chosen as one of only 28 Schwarzkoph PH Salons in Canada and also be a Dermalogica Loyal D Spa. Close relationships with these suppliers means that our staff receive continuous, world-class education from top platform stylists and spa educators alike. Our clients benefit from our current knowledge, inspiration and ability to adapt to almost any request.
While the Salon boasts a fun, family-friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy a great specialty coffee, the Spa is a serene getaway upstairs away from the hustle and bustle of the street. Relax in our great-room in your cozy robe between treatments and enjoy signature teas. Our Therapists can treat your injuries or soothe your stress.
Performance is the cornerstone product-driven results. Our professional and retail offering is outstanding: Schwarzkoph (OSIS, BC Hair Therapy), Surface, Saryna Key and Dermalogica are complemented with 2 exceptional make-up lines: SST and Jane Iredale. Both are mineral based make-ups free of any harsh chemical fillers and dyes.
We treat each of our clients with the utmost respect, whether its your first or hundredth time visiting us, whether you are young or young at heart. And we ask that if you enjoy your visit, spread the word.
And another thing: no tipping. Since the day we opened we have not accepted tips and we have no intention of doing so. We’re professionals and we make living wages doing what we truly love everyday so we ignore this “custom” in favour of your anticipated return!

Happy to be Back
On Feb 12, 2015 someone accidentally ‘hit the gas’ instead of the break and drove through the wall behind our reception desk! While no one was injured during the accident (thankfully), it meant we had to close shop for several weeks while insurance crawled through the details of the claim, clean-up and repairs.
We learned a lot through this incident:
- Our staff is truly the most amazing team ever. We already knew this, but they really stepped up when others would’ve walked out. They showed up in Mandy’s kitchen to make phone calls on their own cell phones, they worked in other salons with different products in order to service their clients, they baked cookies and worked weird hours and did it all with smiles and positive attitudes. We didn’t always have answers and it wasn’t always perfect, but they kept trucking.
- Our clients stood by us. We called to cancel dozens of appointments and were always met with concern about our situation and not their disappointment. Then we called again and rescheduled appointments to different salons and everyone happily went wherever we asked them to. Then we re-opened and you came back. We can’t possibly thank you enough.
- Our community rocks. Holy wowzers. Everyone called. Everyone offered to help. And then Towne Hair and Tib Street Salon bent over backwards to accommodate our huge team of stylists. They formulated colour for us and opened their doors and hearts to us like we never in a million years could’ve imagined was possible. We were even lent a massage room.
- Insurance. Well, my mom, like every other mom, always says “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. So we’ll just leave it at that.
We truly love what we do, who we do it with and who we do it for. And we are so humbled by this experience for many reasons.
Thank you doesn’t begin to explain our gratitude to everyone for all of your support.

Saryna Key is relatively new to Canada but was developed by the brothers responsible for creating Moroccan Oil. This time they’ve employed African Shea Butter as their main ingredient rather than Argon oil. The result is truly luxurious in your hair.
The Shea Butter is sustainably harvested and fair traded through Global Mama’s. There is a full range of shampoo, conditioner, oils and treatments for dandruff, damage repair, color lasting and volume.
Check out Kelsey’s new blog post on her experience with Saryna Key here.
Saryna Key is quickly becoming a staff favorite; we love it and we hope you will too.

Perhaps it’s a bit premature of me, but after a few beautiful days I feel like spring is well on its way. In the beauty industry, a change of season most certainly guarantees a change in look and style. It’s been about a year now that there haven’t been any renovations going on here, and the result of that is a lot of new hair colours and styles. But there’s only so much you can do to your hair, so in true Hairstylist fashion, it’s about time something changed. So the whole front reception and retail area are getting a well-deserved makeover!
As much as I love change and more importantly new and sparkly things, trying to coordinate a huge renovation like this while remaining open has definitely been a challenge. Not to mention trying to explain to the contractors that they can’t really make any noise while working because I own a Spa for heaven’s sake! Please wear your steal toed boots… but tip toe and why can’t men whisper? I can already tell this is going to be a month like no other. All joking aside, I really am looking forward to all the upcoming changes and I’m confident the results will be well worth it.
