Just a little info on a new collaboration Urbaca is doing with PDX photographers Crystal Genes+ Ruthie Briggs. Crystal was our model for a 1940's inspired shoot (Urbaca'a Gretchen Harp hair/make up, Photo Robb Cummings Media), but she's a pretty awesome photographer too!

Did you know Urbaca has six on-staff educators? Two Goldwell color (Daria + Jasmin), two cutting (John + Chelsie), a KMS California (Gretchen) and an American Cancer Society Look Good, Feel Better facilitator (Sherry). As beauty professionals, education is vital to stay fresh and inspired! We appreciate everything education by supporting numerous local schools with service donations, teacher assistance with product donations, and we have even started hosting a "Favorite Teacher" contest in June for a glorious prize package of services/products. THANK YOU TEACHERS! Guest educators from L.A. and NYC travel to teach within our hallowed walls! Our award winning space is used year round to host educational events for Goldwell, KMS California (we just hosted Jamfest--ask Laci and Caitlyn what they learned!)and Bumble + bumble (a razor cutting demo class is coming in November--squee!). We send our stylists to national and international events and classes (ask Jasmin + Chelsie about Colorzoom 2013).

If you're looking for an outstanding source of wedding inspiration and delightful vendors, look no further than Committed Alternative Wedding Event! Last night was a gorgeous spread of caterers, fashion shows, officiants, photographers, DJs and of course, Team Urbaca Bridal Specialists Gretchen and Sherry.
Our absolute favorite go-to gown shop was there, Charlotte's Weddings & More and we had fun chatting with our neighbors from Chez Joly who liked our French Oracle Belline cards. Stumptown DJs DJ Matt was super nice and had excellent communication skills!
We danced, we drank (those Coconut Collins from My Bartender were deeelish + the bartenders were friendly and speedy), and we sure are excited to give away an amazing Perfect Hair + Skin Gift Basket to one of last night's lucky email subscribers later today!!
