Bio:

Oh hey! I’m Deanna Everson, founder of Ginger & Maude®. Since I’m the founder, I get to write in first person because A: I wanted to meet you and B: I wanted to share one of my greatest loves: Oregon. 

Okay, seriously, I love hair, but I also adore Oregon. It’s why I opened a salon here at the height of the financial crisis because I think Portland deserves great hair to go with all of the other wonderful things about this place: trees, rain, mountains, the ocean, big hearts about the environment, laid-back vibes about living, good food and great people with even better ideas for pretty much everything. You know, the kind of people who want fabulous hair even when it rains 70% of the year. (Don’t worry – we've got you.)

I started with a career in psychology with a degree from Portland State University but switched after a seriously botched bang trim fifteen years ago – and I’ve never looked back. I traveled, trained, and have been cutting hair and bringing the fabulous at my home away from home, Ginger & Maude, even since.

I’m a ginger. I’m also a self-professed nerd who attends Sci Fi conventions on one day and high school dance team competitions on another. I love natural redheads, Creamsicles, the Uma Thurman Pulp Fiction dance and probably you.

I’m also the founder of Ginger & Maude, trainer for all of Ginger & Maude’s New Talent Stylists, a genius stylist (ask anyone!) and a hair coloring specialist. (I’m no slouch.)

10 Things You Didn’t Know (and maybe don’t need to know) about Deanna!

  1. I sang the star spangled banner at Candlestick Park.
  2. I’m a card carrying tribal member of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe.
  3. I HOSTED my 20-year high school reunion and changed lives. (So many hook ups.)
  4. My junior high nickname was firecrotch. (Rude!)
  5. My preschool best friend is now my kid’s nanny. The same person who almost and by total accident burned down a forest with me in 7th grade.
  6. I still hang out with my freshman-year locker partner. She used to wear pearls every day. She still does.
  7. During my first divorce year I flipped tires during Crossfit classes. The second  year I decided that was stupid and became a member of six wineries. Choices.
  8. I’ve driven 24 hours nonstop to get to Disneyland. It’s important.
  9. I host EPIC Halloween parties every year. Halloween is my holiday. If I can’t scare a group of 5th grade boys, what’s the point?
  10. My cat is famous. He was in a TV commercial for the Oregon Lottery. Someone held an umbrella over him while we walked around and another person kept yelling “quiet on the set for SEYMOUR!” Boss.

​​​​​Instagram: @yourmotherdoeshair

Bio:

Stina started beauty school the week of her 17th birthday, completely oblivious of what hairstyling looked like as a career but looking to do something with herself, and as luck would have it, she loved it.

From there she went on to a high-end salon to do an intense apprenticeship for two years. During that time two major life events happened; She went to Toronto, Ontario, to do two weeks at a Vidal Sassoon Academy®, where she learned the beauty of precision cutting. AND. She met Deanna Everson, the soon-to-be Founder and Owner of Ginger & Maude®. Stina would go on to become one of the first stylists at Ginger & Maude.

Since then, she has gobbled up all the education she could: be it classic cuts with the aforementioned Vidal, or more trendy color classes with various lines like PRAVANA®'s creative colors, and Goldwell®’s custom formulations with Global Educators, not to mention some really fun and fabulous styling classes with a lot of product emphasis. She has worked extensively with KEVIN.MURPHY® products and is also well versed in their color line.

In addition to education related to her craft, Stina continues to gain knowledge and skills for her role as Stylist Manager. She has taken classes about empowering women, non-violent communications, and business management. She uses this knowledge when working with the amazing team that is Ginger & Maude, to help each stylist fulfill their career goals while maintaining a work-life balance.

As Stylist Manager, Stina manages the overall staff performance for all four of the original Ginger & Maude salon locations. Stina works one-on-one with the stylists to create their personal and professional objectives. Because of her compassion, which has been strengthened by her own negative experiences in the hair salon industry, Stina strives to create a safe and positive team atmosphere for all employees at Ginger & Maude.

Stina is in her 15th year in the hairstyling industry and more than 13 years with Ginger & Maude.

Bio:

My main goal and reason for becoming a stylist is making people feel wonderful about their hair! I feel like I am able to talk with each of my clients to create a realistic goal of their best style. I also can let them in on any of the binge worthy shows worth watching or show them countless photos of my dogs, Jameson & Shelby!

I have been in the industry since 2009 and a stylist at Ginger & Maude® since 2012. My love has evolved for hair over the years & I feel so lucky to continue my education with advanced training in KEVIN.MURPHY, Goldwell & at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica. 

My clients’ hair ranges from effortless & natural to vibrant & edgy, & any fabulous hair in between. 

When I am not at Ginger, I spend most of my time with my husband, two dogs & friends. I love high-intensity workouts, incredible food & being outside as much as possible. (BUT I also love naps & Netflix).

Bio:

Abigail arrived in Portland in 2008, a proud transplant from Kansas City, Missouri.

She began her craft over 15 years ago at The Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California. The foundation of her approach is precision-based haircutting and integrity-based hair coloring techniques. She views cyber-education as revolutionary to the hair industry, and learns something new to share with her clients every day. Her desire to surround herself with the best, and her commitment to lessen her global footprint, are what brought her to the classy, sassy, earth-friendly, Ginger & Maude®!

Abigail has a special love for the curly girls and especially enjoys creating lived-in, modern hair shapes, and fresh, graceful color. She considers herself a “scalp whisperer” for the angry and the itchy, the oily and the flared up scalps running around all over the Portland-metro. Clients rave about her scalp massages and love that it's okay to be quiet in her chair. 

In her free time, Abigail enjoys spending her summers lounging on river rocks, her winters reading, rainy days on bicycle, and sunny days in bed. She is a Capricorn, who makes quick decisions about hair, and slow decisions about everything else in life. It took her 9 years to decide to apply to Ginger & Maude.

You could say she's pretty happy to be here.

​​​​​Bio:

14 years ago and 1,100mi south of here in San Diego, the beauty industry gained a Beau.

Yes it’s his real name, no it’s not short for anything.

He’s the guy who’s had his hands in all things beauty since then which is how a real Gemini rolls. If there’s an interesting new hat to be worn he’s bound to try it out...sewing, wake surfing, swapping out light fixtures, whatevs.

Like it tends to do, the PNW beckoned as a new frontier and he loves exploring its unique charms. He didn’t see snow until he was 26, but don’t hold that against him.

Spending 7 years as a certified educator for Aveda means he always has a trick up his sleeve and delivers Portland’s finest the custom, clean, wearable styles they’ve been looking for. Beau doesn’t specialize in one thing, he specializes in everything. (#murillomethod)

When not connecting with clients he’s fond of driving around town with coffee and OPB* on the radio, all things Michael Crichton and being a single parent to Earnest the cat.

*the same 90’s jams he hasn’t stopped listening to since middle school.

Specialties: 

  • Razor cuts
  • Shag cuts
  • Pixie cuts
  • Textured lob cuts

Instagram: @maysanchezpdx

Bio:

Before beginning to work at Ginger & Maude®, May had explored many paths, most of which had nothing to do with hair or working in the beauty industry. Although she had always wanted to do hair and makeup, she went to the University of Oregon and received a Bachelor's Degree in Humanities. After teaching preschool for a year, she realized all she ever thought about other than work was doing hair. So, she started school at the Aveda Institute Portland and became licensed in October 2019.

Upon learning about Ginger & Maude®, May was in love with the salon after her first job shadow at the NE Fremont location. A strong emphasis on education as well as environmental and community responsibility were really important to her and Ginger & Maude ticked both of those boxes, plus more! 

Behind the chair, May loves hair cutting. Pixie cuts and short styles are near and dear to her heart, but she also loves crisp bobs, textured lobs, shags, the occasional fashion mullet, and classic styles like long layers and effortless movement. She likes to use a mix of tools, such as shears and a razor to create these cuts. May also really enjoys handpainting balayage highlights, too!

When she's not at the salon, you can find May hanging out with her husband, Chris, and their orange tabby cat Fiona (A.K.A. Cinnamon Apple Muffin). She also enjoys drinking way too much coffee, needlepoint crafts, eating lots of salty snacks (Fritos Honey BBQ Twists are everything), watching spooky ghost movies, and buying bath products.

Bio:

Molly started her beauty career in 2012 at the Cinta Aveda institute in San Francisco. She had been bouncing around different majors in college when she made the decision to turn her textbooks in for scissors and head to beauty school. Doing hair gave her the freedom to be creative as well as help people feel good about themselves…win win! 

After hair school, she completed an intensive apprenticeship at a busy Bay Area salon. There, she was trained in Vidal Sassoon and DevaCurl cutting. She developed a love for curls, blondification, and all things hair! She became an educator for the same apprenticeship that had previously kicked her butt, as well a trainer for Davines North America. She loves education, and believes in learning all the rules so that she can break them! She also believes that there are no rules in hair.

After working in San Fransisco and Berkeley salons for 7 years, Molly recently decided it was time for a big change. She packed up her two furry roommates and headed to Portland to be a part of the Ginger & Maude® team.

Molly is a foodie who drinks too much coffee. During the 6 months that salons in California were closed last year, she took up just about every trendy hobby. She adopted two kittens, embarrassed herself on roller-skates, started biking in neon spandex, and got pretty into comic books. She loves to make beaded jewelry and is usually wearing a pair of her custom earrings.

Bio:

Growing up in the harsh climate of Juneau, Alaska, having flippin great hair wasn’t on the top of most people’s priority lists! But Paige has always had an eye for it regardless, and has been playing with hair ever since her Barbie mannequins finally agreed to let her come near them with “hair cutting” scissors found in the kitchen. 

Paige graduated from an alternative high school with only 46 other graduates. She loved being somewhere everyone looked out for each other, and continues to search for environments of that sort to this day. Paige moved to Portland when she was 18 and started the full cosmetology program at Paul Mitchell in downtown Portland. She loves esthetics, nails, and makeup as much as the next guy but hair is where she found her *spark*.

Paige is a people pleaser and is so excited to make your hair dreams come true. Upon licensure, Paige completed a one on one apprenticeship with Eileen Halme at Maven Beauty Lab which furthered her drive to succeed and work on new techniques. Ginger & Maude® will be her first “big girl” salon job and she’s so grateful for everything that’s put her on this path. 

Paige is a Cancer/Scorpio rising and loves to talk astrology. In her free time she enjoys playing Animal Crossing or Sims, cuddling her wooly baby (a fluffy tabby, not a mammoth), going on walks through the cemetery with her best friend, or watching YouTube videos ranging from true crime stories told while doing makeup to old abandoned building tours across the world. 

Paige wants you to remember to make good choices, mask up, and she can’t wait to have you in her chair!

Bio:

Dakota has always known she has wanted to do hair since she was a freshman in high school, she was always the girl in the back of the class braiding everyone’s hair. 

Growing up in Oregon for majority of her life she has gained a love for the outdoors. If she isn’t doing hair you can find her on the hiking trails, paddle boarding, or at the coast. 

At the young age of 14 Dakota moved from Portland to Arizona, where she not only got the opportunity to learn about the diverse culture but the chance to see a different perspective on life as a whole. 

Dakota loves anything blonde related, from balayages to baby lights. Blonde is her passion. Being a blonde herself she understands the process and is highly skilled and knowledgeable about blonding.

Bio:

Lindsey was born and raised in Oregon. She loves the laid back west coast vibe, which is reflected in her style and approach to hair. She was recruited from cosmetology school in 2012 to Seattle, and completed a competitive apprenticeship under Graham Breakwell.

After four years in the luxury hair scene of the PNW, she accepted a position to a luxury salon in the Middle East. This began her career as an international stylist. She completed another 1-year apprenticeship with European artists, and continued to work within an Expat melting pot for another four years. 

Lindsey found that working with all different hair types, personalities, and cultures was truly a magical experience. She is always striving to further her skills to help bring her clients vision to life.  It's her goal to help each person bloom into their greatest version of themselves with hair that suites bone structure, lifestyle, and personal aesthetic. Hair that is a celebration of who you are. She loves soft textures all the way to bold lines. She also has a soft spot for brides and anything romantic and ethereal.

When not in the salon Lindsey loves to create mixed media art, dance, fitness, and hanging out with her husband & son. She's also obsessed with the ocean, forest and large amounts of body glitter.

Bio:

Gage floated down from Southeast Alaska in the summer of 2017, looking for a taste of city life, queer community and a new career path. They found all of those things and couldn’t be happier with where they’ve landed. When it comes to hair, Gage likes it all. It is their goal to have a no-favorites attitude within the spectrum of hair services - that being said, they currently feel most excited about short, edgy cuts, balayage, and bold colors! 

When they aren’t busy making people feel pretty, Gage enjoys socializing with friends, lounging on bar patios, running around the city in drag, biking, and giving their 20lb cat belly rubs. 

Special talents include (but are not limited to): one-legged squats, pyrography, the perfect smokey eye, cat whispering, singing (allegedly) and the Vault of Death.

Summer attended cosmetology school in Miami, Florida, and after graduating she moved to Portland, where she found her home at Ginger & Maude®. Her favorite things to do with hair are bright vivid colors, beachy blondes, and cuts ranging from lived-in natural to fun and funky. In her free time you can find her playing with her little Japanese Chin, Joey, out hiking in the mountains, or at home cringe-watching bad horror movies.

In her 16 years in the hair industry, she's served in lead stylist, education, and management roles. She was thrilled to level up her experience as part of the team at Ginger & Maude®!

An avid reader, she went to school for English and Journalism before switching to hair and brings a storyteller's inquisitiveness to everything she does.

Bio:

DeDe started their cosmetology journey when they were just a little one. Playing with all six of their siblings' hair, they couldn’t help but fall in love with the aspect of beauty. After years of doing their family’s and friends’ hair, they were ready to get out of their small town and make it a real profession. Going into cosmetology school in 2018, at Aveda Institute of Portland, they were determined to show their clients their beauty from within so they can shine on the outside.

On their off time they enjoy collecting eccentric outfits, nourishing their friendships and creating themselves into extremely unworldly creatures with makeup and costumes. Every chance they get to have fun, they’re going to take it.  Special talents they bless the world with are: making a mean eggs benedict, knowing every single word to “Lucky” by Britney Spears, and dancing the night away with their sick moves.

Bio:

Meg used to be a tech bro but left to become a hair witch. She started hair school in November of 2020, kicked ass and graduated in June of 2021. After she got her license in August of 2021, she tried booth rental but decided that she wanted more support, growth and education opportunities, and to never have to track expenses. She is so pleased to be part of the amazingly talented team at Ginger & Maude®.

She has a grumpy old man cat and a small human. In her free time, Meg likes to read, watch her stories, and cook. She is also learning to be a gardener, black thumb be damned. She would love to share some hot trash TV goss with you, then send you out into the world looking like the babe you are.

Bio:

Leia has led a colorful and varied life, choosing to sample all different manners of living. She has spent time as a horse exercise rider, EMT, legal secretary, and forklift operator at a lumberyard, which has taught her all manner of miscellaneous talents. But nothing speaks to her quite like doing hair. As a painter, playing with the color and shape of hair comes naturally. She loves to create all things magical, ethereal, and colorful. She uses her artistic eye and listening ear to help clients truly feel at home in their skin. After all, beauty is really all about making you feel like YOU, no matter what shape that takes. Self-expression is just a window that peeks into our true selves.

After a long year of quarantine, playing in the dirt in her garden, Leia decided it was time to pursue something new and wonderful; this led her to attend Aveda Institute Portland, where her top priority was making sure clients feel heard and doing everything in her power to execute their beautiful visions. She graduated in July 2021 and received her license in Hair Design in September 2021.

In her free time, Leia enjoys riding her spicy chestnut horse, Tuffy, training her dogs to fetch her beers, hiding in cupboards to scare her long-suffering wife, Bri, painting weird surreal art, obsessively staring at her jungle of fancy houseplants, dressing up like a spooky forest deity, and having long conversations about the nature of existence.

Karina came to Portland in 2020 from Denver, CO, with her fiancé and furry family of two large dogs, two ferrets and a tortoise. She spent her childhood in San Diego, then in her 20s the wanderlust hit, and she spent time in many different cities. When she found Portland, though, it felt like home. She decided to stay in the beautiful City of Roses to pursue a more colorful dream of hair for the creative and open-minded people of Portland.

With a strong passion for art since childhood, color wheels and sketchbooks have been a large part of her life. Her artistic background lends her a skill that translates beautifully to hair. Karina's passion lies in color, in particular vivids and blonding.

Karina graduated from Aveda Institute Portland in October of 2021, and her career has continued to flourish from there.

Karina has worked in a multitude of positions from kitchens and doggy day cares, to horse ranches and more. Her experiences taught her the excellent communication and interpersonal skills needed to thrive in the salon world.

In her spare time, aside from doing witchy things or watching horror movies, Karina practices her fire spinning, and loves seeing what's over the next horizon on a brisk hike. Painting and art continues to be a big part of her life, as she is continuously inspired by the creative and enchanting atmosphere that is Portland. Karina is pursuing adding a new horse to the family soon, stay tuned!

Brontë

Brontë Olson

She/Her

Brontë comes as a Office Assistant who knows two things:

  1. that finding time to slow down, reset, and do things that make us feel better--inside and out--is vital to our health, reconnection to ourselves, and general enjoyment of life; and
  2. that scheduling that time can be TOUGH.

Knowing this, it is her aim to make all your wildest appointment-scheduling dreams come true. (Or at the very least, as seamless as physically possible.)
Have a question? Ask her! Need a few options to decide which day is best? She'll make a list. Is Freckles acting salty again? Let her know. She's happy to help in whatever way she can, because getting your hair done should be enjoyable, even when you're scheduling. Let's get you booked!

When she's not slinging appointments, Brontë enjoys baking new things with her little, writing down random thoughts that could one day be stories, figuring out puzzles and what really is the appropriate weekly consumption level of kombucha, and the occasional hard stare at a good wall.
