Skin becomes a fashion accessory at Tanner's Paradise, where Smart Tan-certified technicians have transformed bodies with eye-catching color for more than a decade. The team can recommend a tan-accelerating lotion for your skin type, or steer you through their collection of seven UV machines, including a Soltron bed that emits aromatherapy scents and a Soltron standup booth powerful enough to deliver color in eight minutes. Their VersaSpa and Mystic spray booths both disguise skin flaws and make limbs look leaner without UV exposure or continuous x-ray imaging. Nail technicians and hairstylists are also on hand to crown digits and faces, helping them match newly gilded bodies.
Housed in a charming art-deco abode, Salon St. Jacques is a welcoming, relaxing spa specializing in state-of-the-art skin and body care. Petra Nicoll, an experienced guru of organic treatments, helms skin services for a natural and holistic flesh refurbishment. Revamp weather-beaten faces with an express 30-minute minifacial tailored to individual skin types ($45). After Petra bastes the frontal visage with both a cleanser and toner, she gifts grippers with a sea-spa hand massage. Mineral-rich foundational makeup acts as a coda to this whirlwind facial tour-de-force. The specialized foot bath will soak away stress while simultaneously sucking toxic substances out of the body ($55). Water gradually turns murky brown during the treatment, shamefully reminding clients of their mothers sagely advice to clean behind their epidermal system before bed. As cells are shocked into detoxification mode with the bath's low-voltage currents, myriad healthful benefits can emerge, including a heightened immune system, decreased blood pressure, and a faster metabolism.
The Nines Salon's attentive technicians coax unwanted hairs from both men's and women's follicles using gentle Cirepil depilatory wax. A la carte waxing services appease sensitive skin with gentle Cirepil wax known to smooth the face, legs, arms, and vain cats for up to four to six weeks. A collection of one or three Brazilian waxes brush nether regions with a low-temperature wax before sterile instruments and rumor mills distance hairs from their roots.
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.
The Big Funky Hair Salon welcomes clients with vintage furniture and a homey, residential vibe. Stylists use these quirky accents as their muse when crafting custom cuts and colors to fit each individual's features. A team of skincare pros works alongside them, cleansing complexions with facials and waxing away unwanted hair from upper lips, bikini zones, and legs. Meanwhile, nail techs pamper hands and feet with relaxing mani-pedis and decorate nails with custom designs that include ribbons, feathers, and whimsical renderings of social-security numbers.
Bushwackers Waxing Studio owner Debi Botz believes that Brazilian waxes take specialized skill and that not every waxing technician should be performing them. She should know—throughout her 15 years of experience, she has led classes that help others learn how to correctly remove hair from those sensitive areas. This high standard of quality speaks to Botz's overall meticulous, professional approach: she never double-dips. She uses generously thick coats of hard wax on delicate areas to help reduce irritation. And she consults with clients before waxing services to talk about what to expect—especially if it's their first time.
