  • I was introduced to the salon by a dear friend who drives from Bend. I decided to accompany her and made an appointment with Stephanie. What a difference from what I have settled for this past year! ... it is hard to find a hairdresser who listens to you, but Stephanie does...and you know you have a good (short) haircut when it is still manageable four weeks later! The shop is new, fun and clean, with great music, refreshments and lots of laughter. I made my next appointment and will be driving in from Bend every six weeks.

  • Appel Nouveau is, quite simply, hair heaven!  Kirsten and Anna are positive and professional, creative and current... I am so thrilled with Appel Nouveau, as it is a perfect reflection of Kirsten's clean, chic, and beautiful view of the world. If you're in the market for an incredible stylist who takes great pride in doing GREAT work each and every time, I HIGHLY recommend Appel Nouveau.  If I could give them a 6th or 7th star, I would.

  • Anna is amazing! I have been a client of hers for almost ten years. She is great with both color and cuts. I have always left her chair feeling very confident and happy with my hair. The new salon is very inviting and modern, I love it! I highly recommend Anna if you are looking for a stylist who is both very talented and fun to be around :)

  • Appel Nouveau Salon is a beautiful NEW salon. It's everything you want in a hair salon... The atmosphere is very friendly, professional and positive. The stylists seem so happy to be there and seem to work so well together, unlike other places I've been.  Also, it doesn't hurt that you will leave looking stunning!

  • Appel  Nouveau Salon is a WONDERFULLY relaxing, modern, clean space where you feel like you could sit under the lamp w/ foils for hours and not want to leave.  Kirsten & her fellow stylists are all GENUINE, kind, supportive & FASHION FORWARD!    I love the vibe in the salon, I love how each of the stylists support one another and you feel that friendship when you walk in.

  • I just went to Appel Nouveau Salon last night and it was a wonderful experience. Really convenient location, great parking situation, and relaxing atmosphere. Not to mention that Bethany is the best for color and cut!

    Allison L. - Portland, OR
  • Love this salon! Bethany is great with knowing exactly what to do with my hair for the cut and color that I want every time! I would highly recommend her to anyone! The salon is very cute and in a great area in Northwest Portland.
