Another fabulous artist has taken the time to grace our windows with his art for the past eight weeks. We have received so much positive feedback for his efforts and we are forever grateful to him.
Thomas Koestler is native to Pennsylvania and decided to leave the snow behind for our beautiful Portland rain. He specializes in product design, retail displays, and graphic design. That is a load of talent! I have seen his work and he is just that, talented and exceptionally creative. I was blown away looking at his website. When he decided to do a display for our little neighborhood salon, I thought, aren’t we some lucky gals. Tracy commented “He makes me want to go to design school!” I must say I feel the same
Make sure to check out Thomas Koestler’s website site (because it’s amazing!)
If you haven’t seen the window yet make sure to pass by and take a gander he will only be with us for one more week!
I would like to thank the Portland art community for supporting us here at Trixie’s.

Hey there kids, Juliana here with some really exciting news! I have come up with a plan to show case local artists by having them create unique designs for Trixie’s front window. I am totally excited about this new addition to our already creative space. Being an artist myself, I am proud to support fellow artists in their growth. I also hope to contribute more local flair to North Portland. Enough about me already! Thank you Tracy for helping me put this plan into action.

Disconnected hair cuts are very dramatic because sections of the hair don’t line up with the original guide line. I have a little song for this one. “ Any way you want it that’s the way you need it, any way you want it.” Disconnected cuts are fun, hot and creative. If you need a change you’re going to get it. This one will get you laid. Did I mention these are my favorite types of cuts?
David Beckham….. thank you for always showing the boys whats up because your hair always rocks and we know you have no problems with the lady’s.
Asymmetrical cuts are usually longer on one side. These cuts can be sleek or heavily texturized. If you want something a little edgy and you don’t want your boss to freak out this is the way to go.
Bring a photo or ask the stylist if he or she has any photos of there favorite disconnected or asymmetrical hair cuts. I’ll bet we won’t let you down. What I love most about these cuts (besides the above mention) is that even if you don’t style these cuts all the time they still look stylish and you will get compliments! Yum.

Would you like some Bang with that hair cut? Well that depends…
(1) to have sex
(2) a loud noise
(3) to introduce a drug into your system intravenously
(4) The part of your hair that covers your forehead.
(5) to participate in gang affiliated activities
I really love the Europeans for saying Fringe: that goofy short bit of hair that comes down to your eyebrows. It sounds way hotter than bang. I tend to bang this one up myself. I promise to say Fringe if you help out. So let’s try and do a bang up job and stick to it. Fringe is hot. Like Tracy says, it’s cheaper than Botox.
Long fringe, side fringe, “blunt”, asymmetrical, Betty Page, convex, concave, layered, the list goes on. Yes, every face shape has a fringe made just for them. There is no such thing as ” I can’t wear fringe because ( insert lame excuse).” If you are not sure about cutting the hair in front of your face then wait and research. Look at lots of photos. Fringe is awesome if you are sure that you want to rock it, because we all know we can. Cutting them just to grow them out again is never fun. If you want a change with out cutting those long locks consider some fringe.
“That Fringe looks bang’n!” (6)meaning that something is cool
Mall Bangs…. I’m only going to say this once. Drop the hair spray, remain calm, turn away from the mirror, run to the phone and call your nearest salon…or maybe at this point you better call 911.

The August issue of Marie Claire has our very own City of Roses listed as #10 of the “nation’s ultimate meet markets.” What do you think? I tend be one of the “lid for every pot” kind of optimists, but this claim does make me wonder… Since I don’t have enough recent dating experiences to judge, I await your thoughts (and suggestions, fix ups and dates). As client Melissa M says about men here, “In Portland, the odds are good, but the goods are odd.”
“Defining Traits: Altruism, Ripstop clothing, whiteness
Career Ambition: Wind-power entrepreneur, sneaker designer
Ideal Woman: Vegan Ivory girl who’s lived in a yurt
First Date: A pint of Rogue and a Bogart flick at the Laurelhurst
Fifth Date: Bike Tour of the local wineries (just sober up before you, er, mount up.)”
So, do tell. Of course one of Marie Claire’s own bloggers, Maura, talked to a demographic expert who has this to say, “Gay men seem to be clustering in San Francisco, the District of Columbia, and Portland, Oregon. For lesbian women, Ashville, North Carolina is a hot spot.” Let’s all help each other out here — share your stories of the crazy ones and the good ones so we can all get a little perspective, shall we? Go out on a date will ya? Even with your significant other, it’ll do us all good.
