Take our quick survey to discover which of our Eden Salon stylists and/or estheticians are the best fit for your style, preferences, and personality! MEET YOUR MATCH


Eden is an iconic salon and spa catering to people with high expectations. Eden is playful and creative, and we do things differently by listening closely and earning your trust. We provide an upscale service experience in a relaxed, lighthearted way to ensure the results you expect and deserve.

Eden began in 1982 as “My Sister’s Scissors,” the brain-child of Janet Hill and Gary Friend. Their vision was to create a salon environment that surpassed the expectations of both the client and stylist. They wanted to bring a clean, friendly, and professional salon to Oklahoma City. One that would forever be at the forefront of fashion and wellness. After the untimely death of founding partner Gary Friend, Janet Hill decided to create a “new era in style and service” and Eden Salon was born.

Eden truly cares… the same way we have for more than 42 years. We have trained and employed some of Oklahoma City’s best artists and therapists and we continue to do so, cultivating a wild mind and disciplined eye in every team member. We celebrate the diversity of our team members and embrace how their individual experiences have influenced their craft, giving us unique perspectives to offer our clients.

We enjoy the patronage of some of Oklahoma’s most intelligent and playful people and we take pride in providing a relaxing, fun, and collaborative experience. We invite you to embrace your beauty and embark on a thrilling journey of self-expression. We want everyone to feel loved while you are here and well cared for as you leave. Eden promises to listen to you and provide the level of care, service, and results you expect.

Always do you… but let us do your hair!

Have you had past salon and spa experiences that have left something to be desired?

We’ve heard horror stories of people being stood up by their hairdresser. If you have dragged yourself from salon to salon only to be met by a stylist who is down on their luck, late, changes your appointment at the last minute because their child (adult or otherwise) has something that came up…if you have had to sit through a blow-by-blow recap of your stylist’s last date–or worse yet, you have had to listen to the client and stylist next to you going discussing mistakes, money, politics, religion, or sex, you have found your Eden. That will not happen here.

If you are nervous about trying a new stylist, come see us for a free consultation!

Each new client receives a free consultation when booking a service or as a stand-alone visit. As our guest, you will receive our undivided attention, expert advice, and free samples to take home.

Maddie did a fabulous job on my hair! I very much enjoyed my time with her. I appreciate that she listened to what I wanted, helped with suggestions and walked me through the process of getting a perm. I live in Nebraska but visit family in OKC often. I will be returning in the future and requesting Maddie specifically. Thanks for a great experience!
