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.

Hair Models

       So I bet all of you are just dying to know how my first graduated bob went, right?! ;)

       It went really well! I have decided that the thing that makes this cut tricky is that it has more steps to perform.  It also requires the stylist's precision and technique to be spot-on. However, these are all the things I love about the cut and the end result is such a fun twist on the classic bob!

       As I mentioned before in my previous posts, part of my job as Modele's apprentice is to bring hair models into the salon every week.  A hair model receives complimentary hair services in exchange for allowing this service to be performed in an instructional setting for the apprentice. The whole set-up is actually a win-win for everyone involved! The client receives services free of charge and the apprentice has the opportunity every week to continually practice. Classes are closely supervised by a senior stylist, most often Shawna or Shannon. So closely is the service supervised in fact, that multiple models have asked me if I ever get nervous with so many eyes watching and critiquing every cut! (The answer is no, we get pretty used to it.)  Models receive excellent cuts because the lesson is so hands-on and instructed extremely well.

        Models are needed every week at the salon. If you or anyone you know is interested in being  a hair model, please give our salon a call. We would love to have you come in! 


       Thanks for reading!


P.S. In case you have no clue what a graduated bob looks are a few of my favorites:)

So fun, right?!
