Hair & Fashion
For Every Occasion
With over 40 years of experience, Fascination Hair & Fashion combines German tradition with Canadian aesthetics. We welcome men, women and children alike, and are trained to cater to all of your personal hair needs, from classic to modern haircuts, to highlights, colors, perms, styling and much more. Fascination Haircuts & Clothes uses primarily ‘Schwarzkopf’ products which can also be purchased in store.
Located in downtown Canmore, Alberta, our versatile salon offers a cultural experience with practical services. Fascination is a salon; however, we offer a myriad of other services and experiences: upon entering the salon you can expect to hear authentic German folk music; in waiting for your appointment, grab a slice of homemade cake and a warm beverage; on your weekend getaway to Canmore, stop by to purchase some homemade jam and other goodies.
Save money and time and ask for our CUT & GO Special: We wash & cut; you style & GO! Although we value efficiency, quality remains our priority!
Bookings as well as walk-ins are welcome at the earliest opening.
Don’t hesitate to contact our staff with any questions.

Coffee, Cake & German Treats
My name is Ute von Essen. I was born in Hamburg, Germany, where I enjoyed an upbringing filled with rich German tradition and cuisine. Upon moving to Canada in 2013, I opened my salon Fascination Hair & Fashion, hoping to share my love and passion for my native culture with Canadians. After 8 years of operation, my salon has established a loyal customer base who has grown to love my services, which has only increased my love for my work. I spend my free time tending to my plants and flowers, baking and cooking for my friends and family, and travelling around the world. In the future, I hope to expand my business to include more of my favourite German dishes and beverages.
Classic to modern haircuts, always done in direct collaboration with you.

One of the best haircuts I have ever gotten! She was extremely thorough and friendly. The price was extremely reasonable for the high quality service.
Very friendly staff! Great Hair Cuts! Good Prices! Best place to get your hair cut in Canmore!
Ute is amazing! I Only trust her with my hair! Very friendly and professional. I come all the way from Calgary just to get my hair cut here! Highly recommend!!
Best hairstyles & haircuts for the whole family.
I love coming here, this is the cutest salon I’ve ever been to! Ute is also so friendly and welcoming and is very professional. Her hair cut skills are the best. Definitely would recommend coming here
Ute the owner is very skilled, consistent and does quality work. They are just off the main Street, highly recommended.
Ute did an amazing job with my hair! Exactly how I like it (hair cut and highlights)! Highly recommend her!
Ute is absolutely wonderful!! I gave her an idea of what I needed done (highlights) and the budget I had to work with and she completely nailed it!! She does not push product or is constantly selling to you the time you are in the chair (which is a nice change). Ute will make product recommendations but it’s up to you if you follow her advice. Very well priced and efficient.
Great place to get your hair cut, very professional and at reasonable prices.
Great service, very friendly, a good haircut at a reasonable price in this busy town.
Ute was amazing! She cut my man’s hair and he was thoroughly impressed. Very professional and one of the top hair cuts he has ever recieved, I agree! Reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

Ute is very skilled, listens well, is efficient and does a great job, and all for a better price than other Canmore salons. I’ve tried other places, none as good as Ute. She’s the owner of Fascinations so she really cares about quality.
