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.

A Note From...

Hey Everyone!

            This is Chelsea and for those of you I haven’t chatted with while washing your hair, I just wanted to introduce myself! I started in April of this year after right after I graduated from beauty school and I am currently working as the new apprentice.

            At any given time you can usually find me mixing bowls of color, washing client’s hair, sweeping, emptying the hair-filled vacuum canister (FYI- this is really my most dreaded task!), or cleaning up after the stylists. Shockingly, they do have the tendency of becoming amazingly messy when busy! In addition to helping out around the salon, I get to learn! Every Wednesday morning, I bring in two hair models and have been working my way through a series of classes. So far, I have learned the salon’s techniques for coloring and highlighting hair and now I am working on a sequence of haircuts. I started out with the blunt cut, worked my way through the bob, and have now moved on to graduated bobs! This is my first week doing this haircut and I am slightly nervous! (Don’t tell my model!) The other stylists have warned me the graduated bob is one of the hardest haircuts to master…so I will keep you posted as to how I do!

            I am learning so much at Modele, not only in class but also through observing the other stylists. Every single one of them has never hesitated to answer any of my questions and always goes out of their way to help me learn. Oh, and the clients are pretty awesome too! I am so looking forward to finishing out the apprentice program and becoming a full time stylist!

            I hope everyone is having a great week and thanks for reading this!
