Step into his work space — a century-old Victorian warehouse located in SE Portland’s Historic District — and you’ll immediately understand the aesthetic that drives award-winning stylist Ivan Dollar.  Blending the raw utility of an artist’s atelier with the luxury of a contemporary salon, Ivan has created a studio that reflects his work with his clients: A whole-person approach driven by his tenacity for the pursuit of beauty and an impeccable eye for what suits the individual.

After studying with industry leaders Ruth Roshe, Kris Sorbie, Amita Moticka and Kim Vo, Ivan has spent the last two decades styling, coloring and cutting hair.  Often called upon to consult for weddings and special events in San Francisco, Palm Springs and New York City, he remains connected to his adopted hometown of Portland through his hands-on involvement with a variety of non-profit organizations.

A passion for cultural diversity and local art keeps Ivan traveling on a regular basis — most recently to the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest, and the British Virgin Islands in the Carribean — allowing him to explore his natural curiosity about the world while he discovers new inspiration for his work.
