taking care of the curls – I have hair that is curly and wavy with areas that are crazee frizzeee. I found Khat years ago and have been with her for over 10 years. I have followed her where ever she travels to. She also cut my sons hair when he had his first hair cut (over 10 years ago). Khat has taken my hair from curly to straight. Black to Blonde (back to dark brownish black). I have to say, I did cheat on her and went to other places (one or two times) to get a cut, only to find they just didn't understand my type of hair. =(
Khat is the person I trust with my head of hair craziness. She is awesome!!!
WalkingWoman – I've had many facials, but have never enjoyed them more than with Mandy. My skin has never looked better, and her product line is amazing. Best eye cream I've ever used!
Oh, did I mention her waxing skills? Awesome ! Nails Too:)
Great Facial, Try One! – I hadn't ever had a professional facial and I had the pleasure of having my fiancee buy me one after she had a really great experience with Mandy. I can't say enough good things about it. It was relaxing, felt great, and was very successful in treating some acne without drying me out. Mandy was so professional, great to talk to, and it was just a wonderful and informative experience that I recommend everyone try.
Love Love Love! – Let me tell you how many facials I've had in my lifetime: 2.
The first one was somewhere in Seattle and it was completely focused on freckle counting and the person exclaiming what product I needed to use on my skin and how I was not properly taking care of myself. Also, that ultraviolet light that shows your skin damage? Degrading..
My second facial was a relaxation facial at Salon Mojo this Spring was with the luminous Mandy, who not only informed me of what exactly she would be using on my face, but of what it was made of (organics) and that it was edible! There was no product pushing, and she even recommended that whatever I was using was doing the job as long as I didn't notice any breakouts, or extra oil, and as long as I was happy with what I was using there was no reason to change to something different. Also, she has a couple of magical instruments that help with acne and dirt, amazing and fun.
I loved it so much that I bought a facial for my boyfriend as an anniversary present. It was the perfect gift and I plan on using her gift certificates for presents in the future. If I had hair to be styled I would venture to the rest of the services that Salon Mojo has to offer but alas there's not much to be done with my 'do.
Get yourself a facial at least once to try
Amazing Facials, Waxing, & Pedicures! – Mandy's facials feel so wonderful! She has such great hands and a relaxing, yet fun, demeanor. I leave feeling so renewed, and my skin looks so amazing! She is also a very talented waxer, somehow making it much less painful than any other waxing I've had, while being so meticulous and thorough at the same time. I also sent my fiance in for a facial and he loved it too!
The Hair Whisperer! – Val is an absolute delight and she has created a fantastic environment in Salon Mojo! She is smart, funny, great to talk with and has the best laugh you’ve ever heard. All of this and she is by far the best stylist I’ve ever been to!! She really is a true artist. She listens so well and also notices things on her own so she can suggest things that are even better than what I thought of. She’s the hair-whisperer! I can’t count the number of times I’ve been asked where I get my hair done since I’ve been going to Val. I look forward to my hair appointments like I look forward to meeting a good friend for a glass of wine. You won’t find a better stylist in Portland and you definitely won’t have as much fun anywhere else!
Where I get my MOJO on – Salon Mojo is more than a salon. It's a club! I feel like a gorgeous hotty every time I leave. Val's new spot is spacious and welcoming and filled with laughter and good mojo. Val is remarkable with color and texture. She is never rushed or pushy. She takes her time and gives an awesome cut. Today I had Mandy do my brows after my cut and now I have a new waxer too. Awesome place.
RAD gear-head hair-dresser/comedian. – I've been following Jeff around town for about 6 years because I know I can count on him for a great hair cut. I usually request a pretty drastic change in style and I'm always rewarded by total strangers offering up compliments. I think the proof of a great hair cut is when it grows out (especially short hair), and it STILL looks good, amazing! I like his new digs, and the neighborhood has changed drastically in the last few years, it's worth a look around. Some of my favorite haunts are nearby Tango Berretin and Guapo Comics and Coffee.
Best salon in Portland – I've been going to Val for about 12 years I think now. She's seen me through a lot of changes in my life and helped me to get through them looking amazing. I really feel like she takes the time to get to know me as a person and my hair - and how to make whatever cut or color I'm interested in work for me. A person's hair cut and color are really a form of self-expression and I feel like Val really understands that. From the fancy updo's to whatever formal I was going to, to the bold colors, or whatever cut I was craving at the time, Val has done an amazing job. My haircuts always grow out really nicely too (to the point where people ask me if I had gotten my hair done even several weeks after it's been cut). It's so exciting to see her finally have her own space. I strongly recommend her to everyone. I've never been disappointed and her laugh is infectious. She is always on top of the latest trends and carries great products too (She was using Moroccan oil on my hair before I ever saw it in any of the magazines). From the moment you step into the salon until you leave you will be greeted with warmth and excellent service. I can't imagine anyone else I'd rather have do my hair.
da bomb – Val has been cutting and coloring my hair for just more than 10 years. I have followed her from Blades, to Sideburns, to now her OWN salon Mojo. I get compliments from all my friends - really. The color lasts, and the cut is beautiful for 6 weeks (and my hair is short). I drive from Aloha, and it is more than worth my time. btw, the salon has a 'bring one, take one,' library, a fishtank, cool retro furniture, wine, coffee, etc. Val knows hair, knows color inside and out. A cut is $55 (and it's a no tipping salon). Bring her some red wine or flowers, and she's yours forever. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
