Our Stylists “Must-haves”Dosha December blog "Holiday Favorite Traditions"

Whether you have your own traditions or follow something passed down, the best part of the “holidays” is how it makes us feel. For Master Stylist Kayla Jones, baking holiday desserts and treats is a must as it brings back wonderful memories. “I started baking as soon as I could stand and hold a spoon. I baked with my great grandma and now every time I bake I get to remember all the memories in the kitchen with her”.

Dosha December blog "Holiday Favorite Traditions"In Master Stylist Molly McGuire's family, their "favorite holiday tradition is cutting down our Christmas tree. We always cut a piece of the trunk off and make it an ornament!" 

For those of us who crave holiday relaxation, cozying up on the couch with loved ones and pets is a must! Master Stylist Kalli Peterson “doesn’t feel like it’s Christmas without watching the movie “a Christmas story” at least 5 times”.



Some of our Favorite Portland ActivitiesDosha December blog "Holiday Favorite Traditions"

For the Dosha Team, we all have our favorite places in Portland that makes the holiday special and we are excited to share with you some of the most magical experiences in our backyard: Portland, Oregon.

For Molly, their favorite is Portland’s Zoolights at the Oregon Zoo! “It is always freezing but we go every year and we love it”! Kayla loves “getting all bundled up as well as driving around with a hot coffee and finding all the decorated houses around town.”  With holiday traditions abound in Portland, there is something for everyone. Try to get out, explore and join the celebration!


Here are a few of our favorite things...What is your favorite?

All is Calm, All is Bright

With all the fuss and mess, it is easy to get hung up on the stress of the holidays. It is important to set aside moments to take care ourselves. For Kayla, they “find time for self care everyday. Sometimes it's as simple as a deep breath and a glass of water or it can be a full skin care and hair care deep dive.  As I give a lot of love and energy, I have to remind myself to do for myself what I give to others”.

 If you get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays and need a moment to pause, try Booking a Massage or Book a Haircut and Color. It’s worth it to give yourself a “full skin care and hair care deep dive”, so get ready to celebrate and enjoy the season to its fullest!

Happy holidays and good wishes to all!
