That's why we've crafted a unique offering of services to help you achieve your hair dreams! If you are looking for a comfortable chair, a chill, tranquil, inclusive atmosphere, and a beauty experience that's designed just for you we are your spot!

We pride ourselves on providing a thorough consultation each and every time you walk in the door. Communication is the key to crafting you a personalized experience and hair care routine that will fit your needs; whether you crave low-maintenance nuanced color or something bolder.



We love working with all types of hair but there are a few things we are best at!


Be the rainbow! Our stylists love vivid hair color services and creating bespoke looks for all of our colorful guests. Not sure what's possible? Fill out our new guest consultation form and we will be in touch to talk about all of your options!


Hair color doesn't have to be convoluted. At Alder, you don't need to know exactly what you're looking for. Unsure about the difference between the terms like shadow root, tip-out, teasy light, balayage, or just a traditional foil? We will help you figure it out! From a simple root retouch to a longer blonding session we want to craft a service that is perfect for you using all the latest tips and tricks


Event styling is our passion! We love working with brides and doing our best to bring their beautiful vision to life! We have a team that will travel onsite or you can spend the morning with us in our studio.


Our stylist KayLeigh has a true passion for waves, curls, and coils!



It took me until my 30s to find someone I trust to do my hair, and it’s this place. She is amazing and I always leave feeling so good about my hair...which is a big deal for me. I have very fine, very thin hair and before Kristen, I avoided haircuts as much as possible because I left at best feeling meh, but more often went home in tears. Add to it that Kristen is soooo nice and you’ll never want to go anywhere else!

My stylist at Alder is Ann. She is terrific! Very professional, listens/answers all your hair questions, and works with you to get the style results you want. Really makes you feel a little special every time you're in the chair!

Went here for my first time and absolutely loved the environment. LGBTQ+ friendly, relaxing area with gorgeous plants. I had so much hair to cut, but KayLeigh was a trooper and did a fantastic job. I absolutely will be coming back!
