Awards & Press


Our mission at Ginger Bay provides us the foundation necessary to provide our guests with the service experience they have come to know.  We are grateful for our team of dedicated professionals and also grateful for our faithful and loyal guests.  Ginger Bay is honored to be named with many prestigious awards.  This degree of local and national recognition is uncommon in most businesses as well as the beauty industry.  We are proud of our team for their loyalty and commitment to serving our guests with passion and care, not for "just a haircut or spa service"  but serving "from the heart".  We often say that we are NOT in the business of providing haircuts, nails, facials, and massage.  We ARE in the business of being daymakers and changing the way our guests feel about themselves when they walk out of our door.  Thank you for allowing us to be your chosen Salon & Spa and becoming part of our business legacy.    

Salon Today Top 200 - Ginger Bay was recognized and honored as a Top 200 Salon in the nation for the 20th time.  Thank you to our guests and team for making this possible. 
We are grateful for this prestigious award.
