Deanna, owner of Ginger Salon, is a "hair whisperer"! Seriously, this chic lady knows good hair! Since I began going to Ginger Salon I get compliments on my hair ALL THE TIME! Not just on the cut, but the color as well. Let me tell

Ginger Salon is everything that is hip and fabulous about Portland and nothing that can be stuffy and pretentious about the pearl.Out of the 15 or so hairstylists I have had over the years Deanna is the only one who has always given me

Amazing haircut by Deanna who takes the time, is honest, is critical of her own work (in a good way; she actually LOOKS at you IN your hair to see what's up and how she can modify as she goes along). She doesn't "upsell" you products.

Mandy Zelinka of 77 recently joined the Ginger staff at the NW location, and she can rock some color! She's always up on the latest trends, so you'll never be stuck with something cookie-cutter or outdated. She works best when you give

Pros: Intimate, quiet setting

.

So one Sunday night I realized that I desperately needed a change. I hadn't gotten my hair cut in about a year and it had grown REALLY long - it was cascading down my back. There was no styling or anything and it was just time. I didn't know where to go and I really hate spending a ton of money on a haircut!

I asked around and searched on the internet and came across Ginger Salon and saw there were a lot of good reviews (on here actually) and it wasn't very expensive. AND they had a late night time slot available on a Sunday night last minute!! Awesome!

I showed up to this intimate little space and was warmly greeted. I had no idea what I wanted at all but knew I needed something drastic. Amberleigh gauged what kind of haircut I needed by whether or not I was going to be single soon. Lol. She started to snip away (inch after inch came off) and I was a little nervous but I trusted her.

At the end of the hour I came away with pretty much the best haircut I've ever had. People at my office who I never talk to were commenting on my hair! People in meetings and friends kept on commenting on it! It was amazing! Even people I'd never met before said they loved my haircut. That has never happened before.

I am so sold - I love this place. I'm going to be moving to Japan very soon but will be sure to get my haircut from Amberleigh before I go to hold me over and go back to her whenever I'm back in town for visits. Go here - you'll love the atmosphere and you will be guaranteed to get your money's worth! Just look at how many 5 star reviews they're getting!

Pros: Small and intimate space, reasonable price, perfect hair

Cons: NONE AT ALL!

Portland, you are in for a treat. My stylist Marci has been doing my hair for 10 years. She moved form LA to San Francisco, and I waited months to get my hair done until she was back in town. Now she is only on LA a few times a year and I wait. I have even planned trips to SF to catch her when she is styling there.
I love her because she listens to me and doesn't shoot down my ideas. I always have a few pictures and sometimes a sketch. She always takes the time to figure out what works for my hair.
Usually with other stylists I would settle for a lousy cut because color is so important to me. With Marci I get amazing cut and color. BONUS!

Cons: you will never be happy with anyone else!

Stina did my hair at Ginger and I LOVE it. I went in having NO IDEA what I wanted done and she gave me a great new look. Her cutting edge style and vivid imagination make her styles fun and feisty, yet chic and classy at the same time. Love her.

I am THE high maintenance customer. I have tried many different salons of all price points and Deanna and Ginger Salon are far superior to all Portland Salons. She has amazing precision while still allowing her artistic side and 'Ginger' signature to shine through. The Ginger sanctuary is simply the best choice for all your hair needs and wants.

Pros: Attentive, Creative, Fantastic

I never saw the value in spending more than $10 for a haircut (I'm a guy after all) until I went to the Ginger Salon. That place made my whole day brighter. My hair has never looked or felt so good. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone looking to try a new place.

Pros: Cozy, personal, relaxing, and the best hair cut of my life!

Cons: None to speak of

I participated in the Ginger salons recession busters offer. I received a $75 gift certificate for acting out a scene from Say Anything. I was already half in love with this salon before even going. Then at my appoinment I met the owner and she is amazing. She was not at all judgemental of the bad bleaching job I did myself and of the boring haircut I had gotten 6mo. prior. She really wanted to fix my hair and had this vision of my hair potential. Melinna did my haircut and I felt amazing when I left. I looked good and felt like I made some friends. I'm going back this week to finish up the bleaching. If ya gotta get your hair done then Go with Ginger. You won't regret it!

I am SO excited that I found Deanna and her wonderful salon! She gave me the cutest short haircut ever! My friend and I went together to get haircuts and we had such a great time! Deanna made us delicious drinks and we had the whole cute place to ourselves, it felt like we were celebrities getting VIP treatment (but not in a snooty way). Everything about the whole experience was absolutely fabulous. I brought in pictures of Katie Holmes' latest cute, shaggy short haircut and Deanna was able to copy it exactly in a way that works perfectly on me. She really listened when I told her what I did and did not want, she got what I was asking for and was able to execute it perfectly. I have tried A LOT of different salons and haircuts/styles and have never been this happy and excited about the way my hair turned out! My boyfriend, friends, and co-workers have all complimented me on the new style and cut. I am recommending Ginger Salon to anyone who wants fabulously fun, sassy hair and I will definitely be back to Deanna for my next cut and/or color. Excellent, top-notch service at a very reasonable price!

I recently had my hair cut by Deanna at the Ginger Salon. I have had my hair done by Deanna many times and am always very pleased by the results. I have very fine hair and she always makes it look very full and awesome. The space at the salon is very beautiful and calming. She schedules long appointments so you feel very relaxed. I hate large busy salons where you can't hear anything but the person next to you blabbing away. I fully recommend Ginger Salon to everyone, the prices are reasonable and the results are amazing.

I love this salon! Ginger Salon has an atmosphere that makes you feel pampered and relaxed from the second you walk in. After being personally greeted by your stylist ,( mine is Deanna, more about her later)you are offered your choice of beverages and light snacks. Then the fun begins. Deanna is truly a pro. She is able to take your ideas for your hair cut and color, and create a finished product that fits you and your lifestyle to a glove. All this is done with Deanna's warmth and panache.

I am totally excited that I have found a new place to get my hair cut. I have a particular cut that is sort of punkish and pixi. I showed Deanna a few photos of what I am wanting in a cut and she did a great job. Plus she added color and it looks so great. I love it. I get lots of compliments on both the style and color. The atmoshpere at the shop was great as well. I was offered some complimentary soda, water or wine. There was music in the background and the place was so neat and clean. I enjoyed my time there and look forward to going back in a month

Pros: The girl can cut hair

The experience of ginger's is like going to a Hawaii; it takes you to another place! You simply get lost in the total pampering and personal attention. The cut and color was like something you would expect from an upscale salon in New York or Hollywood ! Both Malina and the owner Deanna are exquisitely talented. If you haven't tried them you MUST! You deserve it!

Deanna, owner of Ginger Salon, has been cutting and styling my hair for years. She knows my personality and what kind of effort I put into styling my hair on my own, and gives me a look every time that is classy, hot, and very easy to maintain. Deanna doesn't only do my hair, she gives me space to tell my story and boosts my confidence. She truly values building relationships with her clients and helping them shape their appearance to match their job, hobbies, and character. She puts 110% effort into every client visit. When you go to Ginger, you won't only get a haircut, you'll have an experience to remember.

Cons: 2nd floor hidden location, but being buzzed into the building makes me feel like a secret agent

The owner of Ginger Salon, Deanna, has a way of making me feel like a movie star. She is so talented and really has the potential of doing hair in Hollywood. Until then, I will enjoy the attention she gives me and the way she helps me leave her salon feeling gorgeous! So far, I have only had her cut and style my hair. Can't wait until she colors it! The heads will be turning, I'm sure!! ;-)

So, I hadn't found anyone who could give me a haircut I was truly happy with until I started going to the owner of Ginger Salon. I'd tolerated a lot of "close enough" and "I can fix it when I get home" haircuts. The first time I went to Deanna she asked me what kind of atmosphere I work in, what I do on my off time and studied my face and hair so that she really got to know what would work for my life. I got a customized style. I could never go to anyone else and now that she has her own spot I won't have to.
