Schooled locally, Crystal Bolton specialized in hair and aesthetics before graduating and going on to assist a Paul Mitchell instructor for more than a year. Today, at Image Makers Salon & Spa, she applies that experience toward expert dry and wet cuts, coloring, and braiding—a skill she has mastered over the last 15 years. She also excels at weaves and extends her beautifying services to waxing treatments.
For more than 45 years, Seriously Sassy Salon's stylists have been cutting the hair of men and women in Corvallis. But haircuts are just the tip of the iceberg at this full-service salon, which offers rich color treatments, extensions, spray tanning, and hair-removal services. Come in for a spa mani-pedi, or have a Brazilian bikini wax before getting hair permanently sleekened with a keratin smoothing treatment. With licensed and friendly stylists and aestheticians on staff, Seriously Sassy Salon is a welcoming beauty spot to get groomed from top to toes.
La Belle Boutique offers respite from the day-to-day grind of work, family, and butter churning with an indulgent spa menu. Clients may solicit a skilled aesthetician for waxing or nail services or revamp their tresses with confident layers and highlights. The salon also employs multiple licensed massage therapists to ease tension with techniques ranging from flowing Swedish strokes to deep-tissue pressure.
The aromas of tropical oils and lotions waft throughout Pacific Bronze & Bliss, adding to the welcoming ambiance of more than 2,700 square feet of tanning equipment. The solar-simulation emporium features airbrush-tanning services, as well as traditional bed tanning with UV light to keep skin from getting the winter blues, a condition where the skin rebels by actually turning blue. Appointments are available after-hours to accommodate busy schedules.
B' Polished Nail Studio's proprietor, Tiffani, and a team of trained nail techs spruce up dingy digits with lush spa mani-pedis. During the spa manicure, a nail wizard soaks phalanges, preparing them for the beautification process and a night on the town. A digit expert then files, clips, and talks tips into crescent moons or heart shapes if desired. Pedicures repeat the same process on little piggies—staff members buff and polish each one with the same love a mother would give to her children if they were made of toes. Afterward, mini massages lull fingers and toes into slumber long enough to enshroud keratin sheets in a paraffin dip.

Petra's Euro Spa is an extension of the accumulated beauty wisdom of Petra Nicoll, a medical aesthetician and former aesthetics director for Paul Mitchell. She began her more than 25-year career in outer-beauty bolstering by attending schools in London and Munich to study the aesthetician arts, including permanent-makeup application, biofeedback techniques, and plucking eyebrows into the shape of cuneiform etchings. Her spa’s menu of beautifying services for the face, hands, feet, and body is complemented by offerings that focus on the mind-body connection, such as reiki and intuitive readings.
