Better Than The Best! – Hair loss can start with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb. Later, it can progress to a bare scalp.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp and can be the result of heredity, certain medications or an underlying medical condition. Anyone — men, women and children — can experience hair loss.
Some people prefer to let their baldness run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the medications and surgical procedures that are available to treat hair loss. Before pursuing any treatment option, talk with your doctor about the cause of and best possible treatments for your hair loss.

This review has nothing to do with Darcy @ Valerium salon. This is spam.
Every day cut to special event up-do – Darcy definitely knows how to find a style that suits your needs as well as your look. She has been cutting my hair for almost 10 years now, and has taught me what styles best complement the shape of my face and neck. I've been through all styles of long & short, bangs and all. She guarantees her cuts and will make sure you are happy with how it looks.
Darcy has a fabulous creative flare which especially shines through in special-occasion dos. She has done my hair as both bride and bridesmaid and I couldn't have been more pleased.
short, long, light, dark and everything in between! – Darcy has been doing my hair ever since I moved to Portland almost 3 years ago. I have never left disappointed! My color is always great too! Since she's started doing my hair, I've grown it out and just today I had her chop it all off.
A month ago, she did my hair for my wedding. The highlights (and the red streaks, which I love) were amazing looking and the crisscross style in the back was just what I wanted. Whenever people see my pictures now, they comment on how fantastic my hair looked.
Most Beautiful, Smooth Gray Hair in Town – I have been getting Darcy's help with my hair styles for 7 years and I can't say enough about her work. When I decided to pack in the coloring a few years ago due to my hair farm (i.e. fast-growing), she supported my decision and has helped hear out my styling desires, making great suggestions along the way.
Like one of her other reviewers, I can't count the number of compliments I get from complete strangers on how wonderfully smooth, nicely styled and beautiful my gray hair is! It's all thanks to you, Darcy.
Great layers – Darcy gave me a great haircut. She is professional, listens to what you want, and makes you laugh. :) She has some unique techniques for cutting that make for a very thorough cut. She also cuts men's hair really well with current styles.
Darcy will save you from bad hair, she is my messiah! – I admit, I am one of THOSE people. I do a lot of junk to my hair.
No matter what level of unkempt, scary, disrepair I enter the salon in (and it is usually at a level that would elicit arrest, if there were hair police...) Darcy takes me in, cleans me up and I leave all sparkly & new!
Darcy not only fixes bad hair, but she makes any hair wonderful! I have been fortunate enough to patronize (not in a pejorative sense, mind you) Darcy for ten years now (whoa, it HAS been that long!) and she does wonders! I moved to England two years ago and saved my hair needs for when I am visiting Portland to have Darcy's expertise and wisdom.
I have never left an appointment with Darcy disappointed and after ten years of hair-tastrophies (at my own hands, visualize me thinking, "Oh, I can trim this, it won't matter...") and just regular hair maintenance & trims- Darcy has never let me down.
From color to style to special events, Darcy has always come through in top form and I leave her care feeling wonderful.
She's worth flying across the Atlantic and continent for- what else can I say?
Oh, dear lord! How kind are you :) Thanks for your lovely and funny words my dear. I always enjoy the challenge. I applaud your adventurous spirit and hope to be here always to "help" when your choices are questionable...
Thank you very much.
Strangers will stop you to ask about your hair! – I cannot tell you how many times I've been stopped by total strangers that comment on my hair! I think it happens several times between each visit to Darcy, and I've been going to her for 8 years now! It's truly enlightening. Darcy has masterfully taken me through countless style changes and color transitions, always understanding my hair and my need for no-fuss styling. I can't recommend her enough, and I'm thrilled she's at such a convenient location!
color wizard!! – Darcy has been cutting my hair and doing incredibly natural looking highlights for 3 years now. The color is always flawless. I live out of town now and fly back to PDX just to have her cut my hair. I would recommend her to anybody who wants amazing color and a great haircut.
Best head massage in town... and the best cuts of my life! – Darcy has been cutting my hair for 5+ years and I wouldn't dream of letting anyone else do it. I've had some bad haircuts over the years by other stylists but have gone through a few styles with Darcy and am always thrilled with the results. She takes the time to get to know your hair, and then gives a cut that works with the hair you have so that it looks like the hair you want. She has great ideas for new styles and they are always looks I can pull off at home. I never got a compliment on my hair until I started going to Darcy and suddenly it seemed like everyone was mentioning it. She's an excellent colorist. We've been through a few shades together! The color not only looks great when I leave the salon, but she thinks ahead to how it will grow out so that I've had the option of doing it again or reverting to my natural color without looking like a freak in between. The salon is welcoming and relaxing - good music, tea, glass of wine, great magazines, etc. Darcy's really good at reading people so the time in the chair is relaxing & quiet or chatty & animated depending on my mood. She always seems to know what's in order. And last but not least, the head rub during the shampoo is beyond words. I'd go to her for that alone!
Thank you so much Kristen!!! It's my pleasure and I appreciate you saying so. See you soon :)
Best Brow Wax. Ever. – Elise is not only warm and knowledgeable, but meticulous and confident- the two things I want most from someone who is putting wax on my face.
My stylist has been urging me to try Elise for years, and now I see why. I honestly didn't know my eyebrows could look this good. I told her I was nervous because of bad waxes from others and my own over plucking.
To my surprise, Elise took the time to talk me through what her ideas were in conjunction with mine and explained the steps she would take to get there.
Hands down, the best brow wax I have ever had! They are exactly what I always tried to do, but would end up going too thin and/'or two totally different brows. My husband even complemented them!
Needless to say, I have already booked my next two appointments and am truly looking forward to something that used to make me nervous. Thanks again Elise!
