Esquire named Hair M the best barber in Portland in 2010, and CitySearch followed suit two years later. The barbershop has also been featured in the New York Times, Men's Health magazine, and the nightmares of unibrows everywhere. The evidence is plain—a man can get a mean haircut at Hair M. But the business offers so much more.
An environment of rugged wood paneling punctuated with HDTVs tuned to sports channels makes the most style-phobic fellow feel welcome, and the bar serving Widmer beers and fine wines doesn't hurt either. Besides regal grooming services, Hair M performs upscale face and body treatments, and keeps a massage therapist on staff at both locations.
Clients at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa receive a completely customized service, down to the lighting and sound levels that transform treatment rooms into relaxing oases. As they tuck into the clean linens that bedeck heated tables, they divulge their chronic aches to massage therapists or their skin concerns to aestheticians. With each visit, the staff updates a client’s regimen so that a treatment remains effective in soothing aches or clean pores that are terrified of extractions.
Founder Jane finds it imperative to treat both body and spirit, and works to holistically usher each person toward wellness through more than one channel. She and her fellow massage therapists call upon a variety of tools while they work, using the vibrational and ionic properties of stones, Himalayan salt, and essential oils to help simultaneously heal and release stress. The goal at Lavender Stone Massage, LLC is for clients to leave healthier, detoxified, pain-free, and unburdened with voodoo curses.
Donna Harris, owner of Oregon's Grand SalonSpa, has more than 10 years of experience as an esthetician. She specializes in permanent makeup and anti-aging facial treatments such as ultra sonic microdermabrasion. At Oregon's Grand SalonSpa, Donna and her team pamper clients with a range of spa services that include hot stone massage, Shellac manicures, and eyebrow waxing. The boutique day spa has appeared on Good Day Oregon, AM Northwest, and the Better Show.
Licensed massage therapist Jenny Nelson delivers customized muscle-maneuvering for each client and expands her already-broad knowledge base with continued education. The three services in this package last 90 minutes, freeing the rest of the day for hectic work schedules and traffic court. The Indulgence body-scrub massage promotes smoothness and opens clients’ pores, allowing harmful toxins and skin-sullying spirits to escape before a paraffin-wax hand treatment seals moisture into palms and digits. Jenny will also perform an Intense foot treatment, which uses a concentrated exfoliant to eliminate rough spots and calluses, promoting soothed and replenished toesies.
