Visitors typically head to The Salon at Willow for myriad wellness treatments, from dental care to laser peels. Sometimes, though, the perfect pick-me-up is actually a mani-pedi, a fact no one knows better than nail technician Beth Counts. She pampers fingers and toes in the spa's salon, painting nails with traditional and gel polishes that come in a rainbow of colors, from romantic red to hiding-out-in-a-blueberry-patch blue.

Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We offer clients ice-cold water and give them magazines to read during their pedicures.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Paris themed, shabby chic, and country decor. Music is always playing while you can fully relax in our fluffy recliners during pedicures.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
They absolutely loved their nail art and could not believe that I did it by hand. They loved the quality and artwork that I put into it. They thanked me, posted it on facebook and got me referrals by the way they bragged about their full set of acrylic nails.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am a full time student at the University of Oregon studying Family and Human Services. I have a passion for working with people and love to craft and design exactly what they see as a vision. I keep with all of the current trends and continue my education in learning new techniques and designs for nails.
