Summer 2021 Update

I am sad to say I will not be making it to Portland this summer after all. Since the Covid shut down business has dwindled practically into nonexistence. Because of this, I was forced to make some very hard decisions. I moved my shop out of Venus Allure into my home in North Portland then I moved to Arkansas with the family. I finally started online school and have been trying to make it back and forth quarterly. I will try again during winter break and keep you posted here on the shop blog.

Thank you all so much for keeping in touch and checking in. I greatly appreciate it. I think about all of you often. I do miss the days when business was boomin and I reminisce about all the parties we had. I hope everyone is holding in there.

If you are looking for references, I have a blog post below or you can click here https://magdolls.wordpress.com/2020/12/03/winter-update-2020/ for Beth Meharry’s contact info. I think she is amazing. Please feel free to follow my blog for I will be posting all my updates there from now on. I have also created an email list if you wish to keep receiving updates about when I am in town etc… please sign up through the shop email. I will be shutting down my Schedulicity account since I have barely used it over the last year. I will be doing all my bookings through the shop email or text for now.

If you have any questions, feel free to text me at 503-233-8875 or email me at MAGDolljen@gmail.com.

Thank you for all your love and support,

Update

Hello,

Thank you all for being so loyal. I am missing hair like crazy. I have a short trip coming up in a week. I will not be back again until August. I apologize for not knowing of any other hairdressers that can take my place. I can only suggest to book a consult, communicate with your new hairdresser, and see how they respond. If you like them great! I will be back quarterly. I should be regularly visiting in August, Dec, and March. If I can make extra trips I will. I will also continue to email and post updates on the blog.

I hope everyone is hanging in there. It looks like vaccines are becoming more available. Lets hope we will all be socializing again soon.

Thank you,

MAGDolls Loves You!

Winter Update 2020

Hello,

I know I was planning to be back in town by Nov/Dec, but it is looking more like February or even as late as May/June before I come back to work in PDX. I apologize for any inconvenience. It has been a crazy year and everything is still way up in the air. As soon as I know what is going on for 2021 I will post updates. I will also continue to post blogs and send emails when I am back and working for those of you that still wish to visit me. I appreciate your patience and friendship.

For those of you who have been asking where you can go while I am out of town, I would recommend my old coworker Beth Meharry. She is super friendly and experienced.

Some of you have told me she is temporarily declining new clients, but I have since spoken with Beth and it has been confirmed that yes she is now taking on new clients, woohoo! Her website is posted below.

Another old coworker Terra Commander, has moved back into town from the Dalles and is currently working at Hair Method Studio. I have posted a link to their website below. She is great with lots of experience.

I know a lot of you love me because I listen to you. Don’t be afraid to tell the stylist (any stylist) exactly what you want. Use pictures and point out what you see in the pictures. Point out where you see the shortest layer, longest length, different shades in color, etc… This will help the stylist understand what you are envisioning. If they don’t seem interested then they probably aren’t the one for you. You can always schedule a consult with them first to feel them out.

I would trust my hair to both Beth and Terra. This is more for if you venture out on your own and are worried they may go to far. I also like to say “err on the side of shorter or longer” with cuts or darker or lighter with colors.

I hope this helps. I miss all of you and my job. I love what I do. I should have a consistent schedule to post by the end of January.

Thank you all so much for all of your love, loyalty and support.

I will Be in town on Oct 29-Nov 8th

Hello!

I miss you all so much! I will be back and working in North Portland on the 29th of October – November 8th.

I am sorry it has been such a pain getting in to see me this year. I did not expect 2020 to end up like this either. Thankfully, I have been very well taken care of and able to stay with family.

I will try and keep you updated here with any new news.

Hope you are all doing well too.

Thank you,

Pictures of the new shop in North Portland Kenton.

Hello Hello!

I has felt so good getting back to work! I hate to say that I have to leave again. We head back to the south on the 15th of Aug and will not be back most likely until December. I will let you know as soon as we are headed back and my books are open.

I hope everyone stays safe and sane out there.

I have been loving working out of my new shop. I want to share some pictures for those of you that have not had the chance to see it.
When you arrive just walk straight back to the yellow adu in back. You will see a MAGDolls sign on my door.

Thank you all for coming all the way out to Kenton to have your hair done by me. I know it is quite the commute for some of you and I really appreciate it.

Multnomah County Opening

Hello,

I figured I would update everyone even tho I am still out of the shop until August 3rd. It is looking like Multnomah county opening has been pushed out an extra week. My books are open for prebooking. Remember, I will only be working out of my North Portland location for a while. Hopefully this will only be for a couple of months- the end of the year.
I miss you guys. Hope everyone is staying healthy and sane.

Thank you,
MAGDolls Loves You!

When will I be back in the shop?

Hello,

This is a great question!
It has been a long 10 weeks. We still have no word on when Multnomah county will be applying for reopening. I have recently had to make some very tough decisions, but think they are for the best.
I gave my notice to Venus Allure last week. Hopefully this will only be temporary. I will keep you posted. I could no longer afford to pay rent without working and I didnt want to dig myself further into debt.
For now I will solely be working out of my north Portland shop in the Kenton neighborhood. If you need the address email me at MAGDolljen@gmail.com or text me at (503)233-8875 and I will give you the directions. I will also be posting some pictures of my beautiful North Portland shop. Don’t worry I won’t make you bend over a kitchen sink for a shampoo. It is private, professional and separate from my home.

The other decision I had to make was to go on a road trip to AR with the family. Originally I was going to stay behind and work when given the go ahead, but as time passed I had to make a quick decision. I did not want to be stuck at home alone not knowing when I would be able to work again. I will be back by the end of July/first of August.

I know you have all been patiently waiting and I do apologize for any inconvenience.

I miss you all very much! Mostly I cannot wait to get back to work and to begin to put all of this behind us.

If anything changes I will send out another email and continue to post updates here on my shop blog.

Stay safe and well.

Oregon hair salons closed

Hello,

I am missing my job. I know all of you are getting more and more desperate for a haircut and or color. I have been unable to enjoy this involuntary vacation myself. It is one thing when planned to travel, but when forced to take a vacation with no end or pay, this stinks. Even though I have been enjoying being with the fam during this sunshiny spring weather we have been having. I have also been quite stressed. I didn’t plan for this. I am eager to get back to grooming and talking with all of my clients/friends. I miss you guys and I miss doing what I know best, hair. Here’s hoping for the best!

Hope you all are staying safe and sane out there. Can’t wait to see all of your home dye jobs and haircuts hahaha! 😉

Thank you for all of your kind texts and emails.
