Sometimes, we know exactly what we want to do with our hair and the appointment we need to make it happen. 

Other times… not so much.

Maybe we don’t know what the service would be called. Maybe we want estimated pricing or timing for a more involved service or removing color. Maybe we have no idea what needs to happen or what we even want to do but we know we need SOMETHING to change about our hair and could use a little direction. Sound familiar?

Did you know we have a service for that? And did you know that it is… completely free?

Our fifteen-minute Hair Design Consultation service can be booked over the phone or via email and is a great option if you’re looking to make a change but need a little more information before you commit. (After all, NO ONE likes booking an appointment only to realize the day of that they need something completely different. 😩)

Tamara, a Lead Stylist at Ginger & Maude, is giving us the rundown on this little gem of a service.

Q: What is a Hair Design Consultation?
A: A Hair Design Consultation is an appointment that offers dedicated time to chat with your stylist about your hair goals, whether that be for a cut, color, or other type of service we offer. You can ask as many questions as you’d like, and your stylist will be able to offer realistic ideas of what is achievable, how long it will take, and what the estimated cost will be.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Hair Design Consultations are completely free of charge!

Q: When should I schedule one?
A: You should schedule a Hair Design Consultation anytime you’re looking to make a big change. This is especially important when it comes to color services where you are trying to go lighter from dark color-treated hair or if you have dyed your hair at home. Some of our services, such as Keratin Treatments, Perms, Hair Extensions, and Detangling also require a consultation prior to booking.

Q: What should I bring?
A: An open mind and inspo photos (at least three)! Try and find photos that feature different angles and your hair type—we can always interpret the style you’re after and modify it to work for you, but photos falling into these guidelines will really help your stylists nail the look.

Q: How can I schedule one?
A: You can book them by calling/texting 971.267.4080 or emailing Our front desk staff is amazing and will get back to you ASAP with availability.
