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.

Shawna Hanks

Founder of Modele Salon, Shawna Hanks opened its doors in 2005. The salon’s success is due in large part to the dynamic personality that owns it.

Shawna is an extremely talented stylist with an impeccable eye for fashion. Known for her wit and warmth, she has a magnetic quality to her that you can’t help but want to be around her. With her skills spanning 22 years, she truly is a master behind the chair. Dividing her time behind the chair with teaching our apprenticeship program, she also manages to keep Modele Salon running like a well oiled machine. An inspiration in styling, as well as, small business ownership.

 
 

Michelle Ketchum

While raised in Oregon City, Michelle grew up inside the walls of Modele Salon.

At nineteen, she was a receptionist on opening day in 2005. We quickly realized her talents lay elsewhere. With 11 years behind the chair, Michelle has become a steady fixture of consistency, ingenuity, and her talents are apparent from the initial consultation to the last pump of product.

 
 

Shannon Paquette

Shannon joined Modele Salon in 2010 and has been making clients happy ever since..

She’s professional stylist part of the week, and rock star mom all the time; dropping her cool factor all over the place. Shannon has a very easy going personality, and loves quality time with her husband and two adorable kids! With her urban style and Portland roots, she adds a bit of edge to Modele. She is our resident hipster.

 
 

Nicole Roshak

Nicole joined our team in 2015!

Nicole is a fashionista! In fact, we have never seen her wear the same thing twice! She is cool, calm and collected behind the chair, and is as consistent as we’ve seen ‘em! She’s got an extremely loyal following, and once you’ve spent time in her chair, you know why!

 
 

Chelsea Moore

Chelsea recently completed her apprenticeship, and we just know she’s the dark horse of the whole bunch!  She’s sweet, poised, easy going, and of course real easy on the eyes!  Beauty and the brains; Chelsea pursued cosmetology school after finishing her Bachelors in Marketing from Oregon State University.  Don’t worry, we only torture her a little for being a beaver!   We know once she comes out of her shell, we probably will all wish she’d get back in it!  In all seriousness, Chelsea is extremely talented, with an eye for precision.  If you think we’re kidding, check out her eyebrows!!

Michelle Spiess

Welcome back Michelle!

Post two babies, she’s back in action! Michelle is a working mom, making magic happen behind the chair again. Her sweet disposition, incredible sense of humor, and eye for fashion are a mixture you want to be a part of. Her styling capabilities span 5 years, and she has quickly established herself as a powerhouse in the salon. Don’t let her petite stature fool you…great things come in small packages!

Her time behind the chair is spent attentively on her clients, and her clients know they are in the best hands. If you want to see the ultimate blow out, Rachel works a round brush like no other! We will warn you though, don’t be surprised if you become hooked on Rachel.

 
 

Kaitlyn Lakey

Modele Salon received a true gift when Kaitlyn joined our team!

Kaitlyn is one of those women you HAVE to know! If you’re lucky enough to sit in her chair, you’re in for a treat, we promise it’ll be the time of your life. Her witty sense of humor, keen eye for fashion, sparkly personality, and fun loving nature make her clients enjoy their time in her chair from start to finish. With over 11 years experience we know how lucky we are to have her!

 
 

John Martinusen

Joining our team in 2013, Johnny comes to us from sunny California and always brings a little sunshine in.

Raised between California and the Pacific Northwest, Johnny is a chameleon; he blends to his surroundings, and seems like he’s a “local” wherever he goes. Starting his career in the dorms of his college, he cut anyone’s hair brave enough to let him. Modele Salon made an honest man out of him. We like to give Johnny a hard time, but the truth is, not many guys could put up with 11 women everyday, and still be smiling at the end of it. We think we are all kinds of cool having a guy work in the salon, but shhhh.....don’t tell him that!

 
 

Crystal Mannan

Crystal Mannen is our newest stylist!

She’s no stranger to us though…she’s been running the front of the house for over 5 years! We are extremely excited to see her grow behind the chair, and expand the professional success she’s already had inside our walls. The world is truly a better place because she’s in it. If you don’t already know her, you should.
