to your new hair home
We are so glad you're here! We understand that working with a new stylist can be intimidating and a source of anxiety. We will always do our best to make you feel as comfortable as possible. We strive to make our space approachable while still maintaining that luxurious salon feeling.
When you arrive you'll always be welcomed with a smile and an option to partake in a snack, sweet treat, cup of coffee, or tea. We don't have a receptionist so be sure to come right on in and a stylist will check you in and make sure you feel at home!
We believe a thorough consultation is the key to providing you with excellent service. We will ask questions about your hair, and budget; then take a look at any inspirational photos so we can create a plan together to achieve your hair dreams! We love to share our passion for hair so styling tips and product knowledge will be a part of your appointment as well.
We enjoy connecting with our guests but if chatting isn't for you we totally understand. If you'd prefer to read a book, work on a laptop, on your phone, or simply relax in silence we are okay with that too! We offer silent appointments to all of our guests. Simply select 'silent appointment' as an option when you fill out our form below or jot it down in your appointment notes when booking online and we will be sure to only ask you questions related to your chosen service. Feel free to mention it to your stylist as well, we want to make sure you enjoy your time with us.
We proudly support the LGBTQIA+ community so if you'd like us to use a specific name or set of pronouns during your appointment please let us know! Our space is safe and inclusive.
You can book online via our stylist profiles or if you're not sure what service to choose fill out the form below so we can learn a little more about your goals. We will reach out to you shortly to pair you with a stylist and set you up with an appointment.
We can't wait to officially welcome you to our salon!
a little about Alder
Alder is a boutique hair studio founded in 2021; small but mighty! We believe hair is an art form and each of our stylists truly cares about providing you with a positive and relaxing experience. We like plants, chill music, and good hair.
We named our salon Alder after the alder tree. There is a strong symbolism connected to the alder tree including strength, protection, determination, and confidence. The tree is also a sign of transformation.
This form isn't a prerequisite to booking an appointment but if you're interested in a big color change, vivid hair color, or hair extensions it's a great place for us to start crafting your experience! If you are just interested in booking a haircut or know exactly what you want please book your service via our online booking portal.
Please reschedule if you are sick or feeling sick. We understand that sometimes appointments need to be canceled or rescheduled. We require 24 hours' notice for all changes to appointments. If we do not receive 24 hours' notice you will be charged for half the cost of the appointment scheduled. No-shows will result in a full charge for the missed appointment.
Please refrain from bringing guests and children to your appointment. Unattended children are not permitted in our waiting area. Our salon is small so please don't invite friends with you for longer color appointments. If you're planning on playing a game, listening to music, or watching tv on your phone please bring earbuds.
