Melina Mortensen has always loved the glamor of old Hollywood and the 80’s Rocker Chic looks. When Melina heard about Shampoo Dolls Salon and their unique blend of Old Hollywood style mixed with a pinup biker chick vibe, she knew it was a natural fit for her and her talents.
“What’s the best part of what I do? That’s a difficult question. I love so many creative aspects of this profession. But If I had to chose just one, I would say it is helping clients find their inner beauty and reveal it on the outside. I love creating a style that not only transforms their hair but also their attitude and self confidence. There is nothing more wonderful than the smile on my clients face at the end of a service.”
Melina is known for her amazing hair color makeovers and she is also the resident educating stylist for gentlemen’s barbering techniques, having had extensive training in both.
Melina has been in the beauty industry for over 10 years. She grew up in Tillamook, Oregon. She spent most of her career working in Central Oregon before relocating to Cottage Grove and joining the team at Shampoo Dolls.
She enjoys learning and keeps herself current on trends and product lines. She believes industry knowledge is key and attends hair shows and online training whenever possible.
