Masks are still required for all clients and staff. Sanitation safety protocols remain in place. 100% of Ginger Salon staff are vaccinated against COVID-19. The salons doors are always locked, but if you have an appointment, someone will let you in and you can sit in the lounge area until your appointment begins.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I want to have my hair cut dry, why can’t I have my hair cut dry? Why do I have to come into the salon with clean hair, and then have you shampoo it?
A: As of phase one, no one can get a haircut with dry hair. Just like hands, hair must be washed twice in order for our stylists to be able to cut it without gloves. This is a rule set by the Oregon Health Authority. Because you cannot wash and dry hair before color services, stylists will be using gloves the entire time until they can wash out the color and continue with the service.
Q: Should I arrive with freshly washed hair?
A: Yes, Oregon state law states that clients need to come with clean, dry hair. We will then wash the hair ourselves a second time, before we touch it without gloved hands. All clients have to have their hair washed twice before touching it without gloves.
Q: But does that means I should wash it sometime soon before I come in?
A: Yes. This probably means you'll have your hair shampooed twice in one day. Before your appointment, wash your hair, and fully dry it. Then, it will be washed again in the salon, per OHA requirements.
Q: I have been quarantined with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or someone who has COVID-19-like symptoms. Can I come into the salon?
A: Unfortunately, no. We hope you and your loved ones feel better soon. You’ll have to wait until you or the affected person has been free of symptoms for 72 hours.
Q: I am a first responder/grocery clerk and am working with the general public. Does this exclude me from coming to Ginger Salon?
A: No it does not exclude you from coming! We do not exclude front-line workers from visiting Ginger Salon. Ginger Salon is also refusing to force clients to have their temperature taken, since this isn’t effective regarding controlling the Covid-19 spread and there can be carriers with no symptoms. (Of course, if you feel sick and/or have a fever, please stay home.) Long story short – if you are a grocery clerk or a first responder, you’re welcome in Ginger Salon. Please come!
Q: I am a breastfeeding mother with a newborn and need to bring my child with me, but only one person can come to the salon at one time. What should I do?
A: As far as it concerns COVID-19, state law considers everyone under the same roof one person. That means you may bring children with you if you cannot find a sitter for them. That being said, all locations have a very limited maximum occupancy. If you bring too many people with you, you may not be admitted.
Q: I am a child under 16 who needs to have a guardian with me to pay for my appointment and be with me. Can I come in?
A: Yes. However, if maximum occupancy has been reached, you may have to wait outside and switch places with your guardian when their service is complete.
Q: I am a child under 11 years of age. Can I get a children’s haircut while my Guardian gets their haircut?
A: Yes! Ginger Salon now offers children's haircuts for ages 11 and under. Please come to your appointment with clean, dry, combed out hair( no tangles please)
