Thank-YouAfter 6 glorious years of being your neighborhood salon, it is with grateful hearts that we are announcing our closure on December 30, 2012.

I can’t tell you how much we’ve enjoyed getting to know all of you and participating in your lives. We’ve watched babies grow, helped the lovelorn, celebrated marriages, divorces, new careers and new degrees and somehow, we were the ones richer for it.

As you may have heard me say, this is the longest that I’ve ever been in the same position and so, it is time for the next chapter of my life to begin. Ms. Jen is getting ready to start school and take on a new career in Funeral Services and would love for you to carry a little bit of Trixie’s with you by getting your hair services done by Tracy Faraca, who will be joining the team at Chameleon Hair Salon on Lombard. Tyler will still be doing the amazing work she does at Pigment Salon in downtown Portland.

I have been privileged to work with some of the coolest and most lovely people here at Trixie’s — they have made every day a pleasure. Special thanks to Jodi Durnal, Jen Partenheimer, Tyler Dowd, Tracy Faraca, Veronica Gardea, Juliana Medina, Amber Wier and Lisa Kimball. Please let us know if you need anything, we’re happy to help and will miss you soooooo much.

OK, now that I’ve cried on my keyboard, it’s time for the good stuff:  We will be in all of December and are booking as many appointments as we possibly can.  We would love to see you all one last time for a service, but if we can’t make that happen, then of course, we should PARTY!

Join us on Sunday December 30th from 11-2 for champagne, snacks, door prizes and general schmoozing. If this isn’t an excuse for some cocktails, then I don’t know what is!  Please drop in and celebrate with us.
Cheers, Tracy


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.

As you all know, I’ve been dabbling a bit in the world of online dating.  It’s been fun (and sometimes creepy), but mostly fun (thank goodness!) .  One of the sites has a great sense of humor about the whole thing, because really, it’s all just for fun at the early stages, right?  I mean, does a fondness for Harley rides or HP Lovecraft indicate any kind of relationship ability anyway?  Who knows?

In any case, OKCupid recently sent me this geographic breakdown of where I would be most likely to find my matches, based on the answers to profile questions.  Pretty interesting…  Guess I know where I should go on those exotic vacations, right?
