Roofer-turned-cosmetologist Garret Vogler opened Suite 101 Salon as a place to share his passion for precision haircuts and creative color. He is joined by a team of fellow stylists who embrace his enthusiasm for keeping ladies, gents, and life-like droids looking their best. The salon also offers body-waxing services and stocks its shelves with products from lines such as Paul Mitchell, Matrix Biolage, and China Glaze.
The professionals at Salem's Elite Hair Salon & Spa bring more than 20 years of experience to the styling table. When they aren't busy taming manes or weaving in dimensional highlights, Sheri, and Lisa Ann can be found performing a slew of other feel-good treatments, such as waxing services that allow clients to duct-tape themselves to each other without fear of a painful aftermath.
Aesthetician Jodi customizes her facials to ensure that each client’s issues are addressed. She focuses on fighting acne, sopping up excess oil, and smoothing fine lines. A microdermabrasion wand helps her remove the outer layers of dead skin cells, so skin looks billions of seconds younger. She also happily waxes off unwanted facial fuzz for a smooth surface.
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.
Licensed aesthetician Betty Vang works at Spades Lash Beauty Bar, located within 77 Salon, to beautify her clients with eyelash extensions. Her steady hand allows her to precisely place individual silk or mink eyelashes along the lash line, and depending on her clients' wishes, the results can be natural or dramatic looking. Betty also can care for the rest of the body, threading or waxing off unwanted hair or perform the Rep?chage Four Layer Facial, a technique called "the best facial of the Century" by Cosmopolitan UK magazine.
For the past eight years, stylist and salon owner Sia has honed in on trimming male tresses.

But along with treating hair to high-quality serums, Sia aims to make the experience as tranquil as can be. She puts clients at ease with her friendly personality, and helps relax the senses with hot steamed towels and an invigorating scalp massage.
