Happy Friday everyone!
I’m super excited about this weekend because Portland Fashion Week is finally here!
I was selected to be a member of PFW Style Collective, and I’ve had the opportunity to do a few fun things around Portland recently in preparation for the show. Earlier this month, I got a facial at the Aveda Institute in the Pearl District, and yesterday I had the opportunity to get my hair and makeup done at Dosha Salon Spa! They’re doing the hair/makeup for the models in the show, and they allowed the Style Collective to come in for complimentary appointments to help get us looking our best!
I went to the location on NW Glisan (near 23rd) and absolutely loved the vibe. They use Aveda products, which I’m a big fan of because they all smell amazing. They are gearing up for a busy three days at Portland Fashion Week and had posters around the salon.
For hair, my stylist was supposed help come up with a look for me to wear this weekend…however, after looking at my super dry ends that were in serious need of attention, we decided that a healthy trim was definitely the first order of business. I’ll admit, because my hair is so long and I wear it up a lot, I’m really bad about getting it trimmed regularly and so this was very much needed!
It feels so much better and I’m excited to be able to style it for this weekend!
After hair, it was time to have my makeup done! I am actually not a hair person at all but (as you might know) I am a huge makeup person, so this is what I was really excited about! The makeup artist used all Smashbox products, and it was fun to have someone do my makeup for a change!
The look she ended up doing included super dark eyes and an orange lip for spring. It’s definitely very different than something I would do normally, but it was fun to step out of my comfort zone a little.
Overall, I really enjoyed my visit to Dosha Salon Spa and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to try them out as a part of the Style Collective!
I’ll be attending the shows all three nights, and I’m super excited to see the all the original creations that are sure to be gracing runway! I’ll definitely be sharing my experience via social media so be sure to follow me on Instagram (@inthepinkandgreen), Twitter (@thepinkandgreen), and Facebook for updates as the weekend unfolds!
