Modele Salon

Modele Salon opened its doors in September 2005, with a team of fashionable, educated stylists. We opened Modele in the Historic downtown neighborhood of Oregon City, bringing an urban chic environment to the outlying Portland Communities which led us to this charming area.

Color of the Year: Marsala

Is everyone familiar with "Pantone's Color of the Year"?

Pantone Corporation is considered the world's expert on color. The company provides the leading technology for accurately communicating color and color matching systems. Every year, Pantone predicts a color that will be the inspiration behind upcoming trends in fashion, beauty, interior and many other aspects of culture.

For 2015, that color is Marsala.


Marsala is a beautiful wine-infused red color crossed with a rich chocolaty brown.  Unlike many of the previous years' color (orchid and emerald green), Marsala translates beautifully into hair color!

A rich reddish, brown shade with blue undertones would look beautiful as an all-over color, as seen on the ladies below. Isn't it gorgeous?!

Whether you are fair-skinned or olive-toned, Marsala looks amazing on most any skin color. From lipstick to nail polish, it can be seen popping up in a wide range of make-up products.

In 2015, we will be seeing a lot of this color! So tell me! What do you think of Marsala?

Party Hair

Let's talk festive hair! 

 With less than a week until we ring in the new year, it is time to start thinking about those New Year's Eve parties we will be attending! I love New Year's Eve, mainly because any party gives me a great excuse to get all dolled up! The dress, the shoes, and of course...the hair!

Speaking of party hair, something I have been loving lately is...embellishment! Sparkling barrettes, bows made of velvet ribbon, and jeweled headbands are just a few of the items I have been seeing everywhere. The best thing is that, with the addition of these simple accessories, your look instantly is glamorized! It really is easy!

Here are a few of my favorite items...check these out!

I picture these pretty gems holding back a sleek pony elegant!

Slip this velvety comb into a messy side bun and...voila!

And, these are my favorite:  Simply use one of these little sparklers to pull back one side of your hair, add a few curls are good to go!

Do you have a New Year's Eve party or event coming up and feel like you may need a little extra help with your hair? Do you have a hair accessory and don't know how to wear it? Give us a call and our stylists would love to get you all dolled up!
