It was an exciting December for us, made even more so because during the entire month we held our Second Annual Beauty Drive.
Throughout the month, any client who donated a new, unwrapped toy at either the Lloyd Center or Clackamas Town Center Phagans location saved 50% on their salon services. Clients who donate will also be entered into a drawing for a holiday gift bag filled with products from Joico, which sponsored the event.
In the end Portland firefighters from Station 13 had to tote away 12 huge bags of toys for donation to their Toy and Joy program. Each year, the Toy and Joy program ensures that more than 12,000 children in the Portland area are not forgotten by Santa.

On December 14, 2011, both locations of Phagans School of Hair Design in Portland held a fundraiser for 2-year-old Tristan Hicks, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in February 2011. We’re happy to announced that with the help of our staff and clients we were able to raise more than $3,100 for his wellness fund. We donated all the salon service profits we made at both our stores.
Tristan is the son of Emily Hicks, a graduate and employee of Phagans. Unfortunately, Tristan’s battle isn’t over and his family could still use your help to pay for costly medical bills.

You know when I started to look back at this year I was amazed at all we accomplished. But before I take that look back I think it’s important to send some thoughts to those out there who are really struggling in these economic times.
Earlier in the year it did look like we were, as a nation and as a community, going to see recovery. Yet we still have double-digit joblessness, shrinking home prices, a banking system in crisis and no real end in sight.
Yet we are fortunate in the cosmetology industry because there really is no better time to make an investment in yourself and in your future. Cosmetologists are working and making money and many, because they work for themselves, have control …

The recent nail art competition at Phagans inspired students at both the Clackamas and Lloyd locations to amp up their creativity and execution. Although the competition was fierce, we selected two winners whose efforts showed true excellence. And the winners are:
Valerie Etzel – Valerie started in April in the daytime nail program, but quickly added esthetics as well. She entered the competition because she loves expressing her creativity through nail art. She plans to focus on nails professionally once she completes the program this fall.
Francisca Serrano – Francisca, a night student at the Lloyd Center location, is working on the full course program and looking forward to graduating next spring. Her love for doing nails and facials is what spurred her to enter the nail …
Sandwiched between the lazy, hazy days of summer and the crazy holidays, fall is a great time to take stock, to harvest the fruits of your labor and prepare for the long, dark winter to come. As the days grow shorter and the weather turns crisp, we have time to revel in all the bounty of the season. Wrap up in a warm, cable knit sweater and pull on your leather boots for a trip to the pumpkin patch.
As you revel in all the luxuries of fall, don’t forget to pamper your skin, too. Falling leaves should signal to everyone that it is time to rejuvenate your skin and repair all the damage you’ve done during the previous months by scheduling a facial. According to …
