One customer says: I'm so grateful for Lainie! She fixed my brassy hair last week effortlessly! I didn't have time to come in to see her and went to a different salon where I got brassy color with green tinge! It was amazing — Lainie took one look and told me she could fix it no problem! She gave me my nice brown hair with highlights back! Did I mention she was super sweet and very understanding about my difficulty getting in to see her? Or that she did it in under an hour? I left with soft hair and gorgeous color. She's the best! Thank you Lainie!
Love this mix of colors! Always impressed by our amazing stylist @itsnayyo 🎨

One customer says: My sister recommended this salon (she's probably sent at least 20 people over, and they keep coming back). I, first, got my balayage over my black slightly wavy-permed hair but it did not damage it, and came out a very fiery and attitudey dark red-violet. Cue my 3 month (I stre~~tched it a wee bit, should've been in earlier but life happens) followup… I received a gloss treatment to slightly darken the faded parts. Just 1 hour later, voila! Gorgeous wine red hues~

One customer says: I haven't been this happy with my haircut in years! Casey was very communicative, patient, and detailed. After greeting me with a smile and shaking my hand, he asked for a detailed description of what I was looking to do with my hair.  He checked for clarification and took notes on a form to keep on record for future reference. Prior to my appointment, he reached out to me through text, encouraging me to send some inspiration photos. He was gentle through the whole process and gives an amazing scalp massage. I had some trouble articulating my preferences, but Casey knew exactly what I was attempting to explain. He checked in with me each step of the process to make sure we were on the same page. He even styled my hair in waves with a flat iron and taught me how to do this at home. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

One customer says: I've been going to Zach for years, and always love what he does with my hair.  I have super fine, mostly straight hair – but a lot of it.  Because of this, if it's not styled correctly it can be heavy and limp.  Zach's done wonders with it from long to short styles, and everything in between.
On another note, the space is cozy and nice with comfy chairs (even when you're getting your hair washed, which is usually uncomfortable).  They have tea and coffee too!
Highly recommend.

One customer says: Roxy (Fox-Rox your Locks on FB) is such an awesome hair dresser. I enjoy my time in her chair, she is easy to chat with and she does a GREAT job with my hair!
I often dread haircuts because I feel like my hair is particular and easy to mess up. Roxy is not even capable of messing! Seriously, my favorite haircut in Portland from this gal.
Go see her!

One customer says: Andrea is the Goddess of Curly hair. I went decades before deciding to embrace my curly hair.
After many a disastrous cut that led to the horrific "triangle" of poofy, frizzy hair I begged Andrea to help. She performed her special brand of magic and I walked away with a perfectly coiffed head of luscious curls. She also painted my curls in Balayage and I will never trust anyone else with my hair again! She also educates you on how to wash and style your hair and what products to use, all without ever being pushy. Love her!!

One customer says: Lalo! This salon was highly recommended to me by a friend who is extremely hairstyle savvy. She was trying to help me out after I received a completely disastrous haircut a few weeks before at a different salon. "Go to Lalo. They know what they're doing. They'll fix it." And indeed they did! Isabel was like a hair doctor, diagnosing my ills and administering sweet medicine.

Joseph is a nice guy and the last couple of haircuts have been outstanding! Check him out as I have high standards. You won't be disappointed!

She took my terrible grown out hair cut and made a masterpiece out of me. I feel more beautiful than ever thanks to Abi and Ginger Salon. Already booked my next appointment!!

One customer says: I have been here twice now and always leave happy with my haircut. Madeline is a nice and talented hairstylist who is able to deftly cut hair to your desired look with speedy precision. I usually get a few inches off with layers, they use R&Co products which always smell amazing and high end and work wonders. They are located in a cool loft-type building on Williams, I found easy street parking on Williams (near a wishing tree actually!).

One customer says: I am now post first wash after my Brazilian Blowout with Sean and my hair still looks runway pretty!  My curls are present but with zero frizz and they are sooo much easier to blow dry at home.  Shaved off a good 20 minutes from my time – in awe.  And I have had these before without the same results.  Already scheduled another with Sean several months down the line as I am confident it will last well.

One customer says: Shawna turned me into a mermaid princess. Not many stylists can cut wavy/ curly hair to maximize its body and potential. Most will just give you a straight girl's haircut and you will have to mess with it to get it to comply. I'm low maintenance. I want to wake up with my hair looking good already. No styling, no brushing.
She took a ridiculous amount of time with me. She asked me what I wanted to improve and if I wanted any education on certain products. Not pushy, very knowledgeable.

One customer says: My experience with Appel Nouveau was great. They listened and delivered the best color and style I've ever had. Claudette is simply amazing and I'll be returning for their atmosphere, attitude, and talent. They are knowledgeable of hair type, product needs, and don't push you to do things you don't want. 10 out of 10 (or 5 out of 5 in this case).

One customer says: Heather Mott has been my stylist since I moved to Portland in 2014. She heated my style and we are working on my going gray in a pretty way. My daughter loves her, as do friends. Why? She's talented, personable and adaptable. The salon is great, too, and located in an area filled with places to shop and eat. Another thing I love about Heather? We like some of the same things, so her recs are always spot on.

He totally nailed it, and I'd 100% come back here when I find myself in the area, even if it's just for fun and not an event. Definitely go here for a style!

One customer says: I had Kristina (the owner) and she is just a ray of sunshine! She is sweet and made me feel comfortable the minute I walked through the door. I came in with a very grown in balayage and it wasn't pretty. I had a picture of exactly what I wanted and Kristina delivered! She was so knowledgeable and knew EXACTLY what to do. I just sat there and she worked her magic and it was incredible. I had such a positive experience and will be coming back 100%! Also the salon itself was just gorgeous so that's always a plus!

One customer says: I cannot say enough great things about this salon, and about Allison's unbelievable talent and hospitality. She checked in with me at every decision-making crossroads throughout the process- shape, tone, and upkeep- and I was so happy to be in her capable hands. I adore the cut, but am honestly blown away by her skill with color; it is vibrant, dimensional, and done in a way that will make the inevitable grow-out not look insane. It's not cheap, but boy is it worth every penny. Thank you Allison, I will absolutely be back!

One customer says: It took me a couple of years after moving to Portland to find a salon that I liked. After reading all of the yelp reviews and stylist bios for Ginger Salon I finally decided to entrust my long hair to Nicole.
I was not disappointed as she's helped me go from long layers to sweeping bangs and even added some pops of color in the last two years.  It's only the second time I've had bangs or color in my 35 years on this earth.  Nicole has a fun personality and her scalp massages melt my brain!  I truly do feel pampered and beautiful each time I walk out of an appointment.

I went to her for a partial root touch up, she added some dimension with a glaze and voila!  I'll be back for sure 🙂

One customer says: Got an awesome cut and style from Carrie with new bangs.. so glad she was the one I trusted to do them. They turned out perfect! Shaggy, yet really cute and modern. She gets it.
After the cut, Laura fixed my warm roots and made me blonde again  The time and expertise she put into it was impressive. With all of that processing my hair still came out soft as silk.
I've totally found my new Portland hair ladies.. and I couldn't be more excited about the possibilities! Both made me feel super comfortable and the place is so freaking cute!! Lol There's metered street parking out front (the parking meter people are ON IT.. so beware), the prices are totally reasonable, the products they use are yummy smelling, and it's fancy without being fussy. Loved it. Can't wait to go back
