Let’s face it. There are a LOT of places to get a mani/pedi in the Portland area. But the experience you get from salon to salon can vary drastically. Sure, you can find a cheap-o manicure or pedicure in town but you usually get what you pay for…questionable cleanliness, indifferent customer service, polish that is old and out of date and an overall feeling of BLEH. Here are all the reasons you need to treat yourself to a little hand-candy and brighten your day when you get a pop of color, typing away at your 9 to 5.

Tired Of Ho-Hum Mani/Pedis?

So, you’re wanting to shake things up in your life. You’re ready for a change. Maybe you’re not ready to quit your job and travel the world, or break up with Mr. Right Now, but you can feel a change a-comin’.

  • woodline, fairy, fairies, avant garde, blonde, volume, ethereal

The Dosha Creative Team branched out into the mythical realm for this Avant-Garde photoshoot. These Woodlyn Fairy Creatures embody a light and ethereal mood, however, they also seem to have a little bit of a dark side. These nymphs almost seem reminiscent to Sirens in Greek Mythology, who lured sailors with their beauty and captivating singing voices only to wreck their ships on the nearby rocks. The Creative Team succeeded in making these enchanting little creatures larger than life.

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?

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. ...
