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.

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!

Thanks for reading!


Introducing... Cindra Davis

Hi pretties... we are starting a new blog series introducing each of our beautiful (and handsome) stylists! Starting out is the wonderful Cindra. Hopefully this helps you get to know each of us better!


When did you first decide you wanted to do hair? 

When I was 4, and cut my own hair behind the couch...haha, while that actually happened (more than once) - I knew I wanted to do hair when I was pretty young, my older sister always had a style of her own, whether it was color, cut or how she styled it that's what made me want to be able to play with hair for a living! 

What inspires the you?

Above all, my husband inspires me to be the best hair stylist and person I can be. People inspire me, I am always looking at everyone's hair to see what sparks something within me to create an idea for my clients' hair! There's nothing quite like going to get your hair done when you've had a rough day, or just aren't feeling great about your hair. I want nothing more than to make someone feel their best as they walk out of the salon!

What is your favorite hairstyle?

I'm a sucker for a beautiful bob. Everyone looks good in it and you can manipulate it to make it individual to each person. The possibilities are endless!  (It's also my favorite style to cut!)

What is your favorite styling tool?

I love a good flat iron, you can straighten hair out nice and smooth or put some wave into it with a flick of your wrist! 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?  

In 10 years I hope to be a successful stylist who loves what she does, and still has the burning passion to make people feel good about themselves. Oh! And have a family ;)  

What is your favorite product?  

There's so many products!! It's hard to choose just one. I'd have to say right now, I love using the grooming cream and texture mixed together to bring out the crazy wave in my hair :)
