Once a small artists' colony, Cannon Beach still plays host to a number of local galleries scattered throughout the town. Cedar-shingled boutiques dot the downtown shopping district, where visitors can also find several restaurants and wine bars.The town’s greatest draw, though, is its natural, coastal grandeur. Paying a visit to Haystack Rock is a must, but nearby Ecola State Park offers a more panoramic view of the Oregon coast. Here, hikers navigate forest trails once traversed by the Lewis and Clark Expedition, passing through towering sitka spruces, douglas firs, and western hemlock and pausing at ocean overlooks to espy migrating gray whales in the distance.
Janelle Lowery is a licensed massage therapist who strives to provide massages that relax both the mind and the body. Her studio is a tranquil space where white curtains filter the overhead lights, producing a soft glow that complements the earth-toned walls and wall-mounted candles for a true relaxation oasis. Janelle offers Swedish massages to improve circulation, deep-tissue massages to relieve chronic pain, and hot-stone massages that combine focused pressure with heated basalt stones to undo muscular gridlock and tension. Customers can also opt for prenatal bodywork, which helps moms-to-be unwind from the stress of carrying the weight of two and the mental stress of trying to design a solar-paneled baby crib.

Un-undulating head threads can mimic Elvis's lip and curl with a perm ($65+), and those whose hair has too much spring in its step can unwind by applying the Groupon value toward the cost of a Brazilian blowout ($300).

If skill is measured in hours spent practicing a craft, Teddi Jean could be called a master. She graduated from a 1,200-hour aesthetics program at the NW Institute of Esthetics and channeled her skills and experience into Teddi Jean's Skin Care. To foster beauty on the surface, she applies traditional, long-lasting water-resistant airbrush makeup, as well as eyelash extensions with Minkys faux lashes. She also helps skin obtain a more radiant glow with custom facials and body treatments, such as seaweed and chocolate wraps, which revitalize skin and reduce signs of aging without outfitting customers with sailor outfits and oversize lollipops.
