I'm Deanna Everson, owner of Ginger Salon. Ginger, and I have to admit something: I'm obsessed with Oregon. Let me explain my obsession with starting at the very, very beginning of my love affair with this state,
I grew up in Banks, Oregon (pop. 550). To be honest, I really really didn't like growing up there. I always thought I was missing out on something much bigger, much more fabulous, more dangerous and mysterious, just more. I spent my early adulthood trying to find that something. Let me see here.....six times to New York City, San Francisco, Sedona, Seattle, Chicago, Cinque Terre, Palmer, Hawaii, Park City, etc. etc. etc. blah blah blah blah blah. Yep, lots of searching. Here's the funny part: I missed my blanket of trees. And oh yes, I missed the rain. Call me crazy. It was like I would step off the plane and be like, wow, this place is not fabulous. Where are the trees? Or wow, this place has a case of the lamey lame-oh, it's freaking humid/flat/scary/hot/cold/disturbingly religious/conservative/too liberal/much much to cool, and back to the blah blah blah blah etc. etc. etc. I was even thinking of moving to L.A. at the beginning of my hair career. Yes that's right, a red head in L.A. Can you imagine? If I couldn't handle Sedona, then L.A. I would have been able to handle?
So here's the scoop: I'm not moving. Been there, tried that, not happening. Portland is my home, my life, my family, and I love it here. Go ahead and ask me, I'll give you at least 50 reasons as to why Portland and Oregon rock. So this is how it's going to work.... I'll do the traveling, the training, the searching, the teaching, and I'll pile it all into my little bag of information and bring it back to my city, and Ginger Salon. I will make Portland a hair destination for the world, then I will never have to move again. And you won't either! You can just buy organic, drive a hybrid, join a bicycle gang, watch the swifts, zoo bomb, get cracked out on Stumptown, become vegan for a week, picket a fur company, skate with Tonya and have the best hair in the country. How's that sound?

As we've said before, Ginger Salon loves Kevin Murphy. More than love; we're obsessed. Our most recent obsession courtesy of KM is his new line of products called Plumping. What does this mysterious Plumping line do, you ask?
