There’s nothing like getting new ideas and techniques for upping your makeup. In fact, we recommend it at least 2-4 times a year. Colors change with the seasons, fashion magazines promote new trends and it’s fun to keep up with it all, right? And if you’ve got a special occasion like a wedding, prom, anniversary or hot date, it’s always fun to have a makeup artist help you look FAB. However, you want to make sure you go to a true makeup artist, and not trust your look to an amateur. After all, it’s your face AND your first impression, right?

How To Find The Right Makeup Artist

Hair color has never been more exciting! There are so many unique new trends and techniques, and maybe you’re ready to try one. We’re seeing so many iridescent lilacs on the streets and runways and the shade looks good on almost everyone, thanks to the color-correcting blue undertones that can give skin a brighter appearance. (Always a good thing.) Blonde is always in style and we’re seeing a lot of sun-kissed golden ombre hues this summer. And if red’s your thing, say goodbye to those strawberry blonde hues that are so 2017—and hello to fiery crimson reds. Rose Gold is also a big look for 2018. ...

It’s a question we hear a lot: “What makes Dosha different from other salons in the Portland OR area?” After all, aren’t all salons alike? Frankly no, and we love to explain what sets Dosha Salons and Spas apart from other top salons in Portland.

Can you look glam just after battle? These models might not have just conquered a war, but their delightfully disheveled looks exude power and authority. Has anyone ever said too much girl power is a bad thing? We have been seeing these Battle-Beauty looks hitting the runway, so the Dosha Creative Team decided to come up with their take on these high-fashion Warrior Queens.

"We can take on the ferocious attitude."

Check-out a rundown of what we have been loving this month and let us know if you try anything yourself. Let’s get started!

Fashion

  • Cropped-Wide Leg Pants- If you’re like me, you love shopping a little too much. I like to “browse” some of my favorite shops every weekend to see what is trending (and by browse, I mean impulse buy yet another striped piece. #GuiltyAsCharged). One style that I have been seeing EVERYWHERE is the cropped wide leg pant. Remember gauchos from the early 2000’s? Well, they’re back and chic-er than ever!

Festival fashion has become its own genre of clothing over the past few years as both festivals and social media has skyrocketed in popularity. Did your outfit moment really happen if you didn’t get a picture for your Instagram? That might seem a bit extreme, but we have to admit that half the fun in getting dressed up is curating the perfect photo to showcase your look and sharing it.

Much like fashion shows, festival-wear is an exaggeration of clothing that wouldn’t always reflect day-to-day style. However, the trends that we see emerging from Coachella to Bonnaroo...

It’s the end of another school year and graduation caps are flying into the air in celebration of hard work and well-earned diplomas. It can be difficult to figure out the perfect gift for the graduate in your life if you want to come up with a present that is out of the box. Skip the clichés like the Dr. Seuss classic “Oh the Places You Will Go” or the fancy pen that they will most definitely misplace. With such a big milestone in someone’s life, we have the perfect way to celebrate their achievement.
