So I am like what seems like everyone else in this wonderful city, a transplant! I have lived in Portland for the last 5 years and have spent countless hours in salons trying so hard to get my color right. Blonds are not the norm in Portland and until now I have had a horrible array of what some consider blond...... I however do not consider orange and yellow pretty blond colors.....
Until I met Amber. My hair is a beautiful buttercream blond with depth and tone and feels amazing. Go see her, not only will your hair look great she has a kind gentle soul. Not the typical hairstylist and let me tell you not the typical talent. She is wonderful!

Great result every time I come. I drive 20 miles in just to be able to have my cut come out right. Had my sis-in-law cut it for me at Christmas and I will never make that mistake again. A good haircut takes ten years off of your face and these guys are the best.

It is so rare to find a salon that is consistent 100% of the time. Everyone makes mistakes. Apparently Dezi's does not. Every time I have had my hair done here it is with out a doubt the very best. Color comes out perfect. The cut comes out perfect. The styling comes out perfect. I have even received helpful advice on coming "up with the times" regarding my style. Highly recommended.
