Visitors who have been coming to La Conner for years remember the charm of the Tillinghast Nursery and gift store at the entrance to La Conner – these days, the original 1890’s structure is a delightful grouping of businesses including Salon Rouge. The charm on the outside of the building is just the beginning, however. Welcome to Salon Rouge, where beauty comes from the inside out!
Inside Salon Rouge, the handsome wood floors, and a lovely wall garden immediately envelop you with a sense of calm. It’s a warm and happy place – the laughter and conversation are honest and genuine, and it’s clear that not only does the staff truly enjoy their clients and customers, but the clients and customers love being a part of the Salon Rouge ‘family.’
With new owner Ginger Harris at the helm, Salon Rouge has evolved to be more than a fantastic day spa and salon featuring Aveda plant-powered hair care. You will be surprised to find a boutique and an extended holistic space for fitness classes, nutrition classes, paint and sip events, and more! “We have expanded our Salon and Spa offerings as well and now include permanent makeup services including micro-blading and powder brows,” says Ginger.
New Fitness Studio
Sophia Price, Salon Rouge’s Fitness Instructor, will be teaching classes six days a week, and classes include INSANITY, PiYo, and Barre.
INSANITY is a revolutionary cardio-based total body conditioning program based on the principles of MAX Interval Training. By using MAX Interval Training, INSANITY pushes the participant to new training heights, resulting in more calories burned, faster results, and more efficient metabolism. INSANITY’s interval training is the pinnacle of cardio training. INSANITY is a predesigned interval class that requires no equipment and is easy to learn and fun to participate in. INSANITY Rounds (released every other month) offer participants the opportunity to a challenging class with heart-thumping, well-timed music. The group-exercise adaptation of this workout has been designed to give participants a safe, challenging, and results-driven experience. INSANITY is driven by motivating music and the direction of the Sophia. This training program takes into consideration the individual needs of group-exercise participants by providing a variety of modifications for all fitness levels.
PiYo classes combine yoga and Pilates for a mind-body workout. PiYo is a total-body fitness system designed to whip you into shape from head to toe. It combines the practices of Pilates and yoga to help you build strength, lose weight, increase flexibility, and have a great time doing it. PiYo was designed for people who want the mind-body benefits of a yoga or Pilates workout, but with a higher-energy, higher-sweat class.
Barre class is a rigorous workout that blends elements from different exercise styles, including ballet, pilates, and yoga.

Ginger Harris is focusing on creating an environmentally friendly salon. Ginger is working on solutions to recover and repurpose beauty waste, ensuring that we can help keep people and the planet beautiful. “I am excited by the opportunity to further the vision of Salon Rouge, which has been my Salon home since moving to Washington in 2016. It is my dream to create a place of community centered around beauty and health in an environmentally sustainable way. In support of this vision, we have recently partnered with Green Circle Salons, which will allow us to recycle many of our by-products, including hair color, foils, and even hair! Beauty emanating from taking care of our selves and the world in which we live is our mission at Salon Rouge,” exclaimed Ginger.
