Scrolls of gauzy white paper hang from the ceiling at Marjan?s Place Salon & Spa, separating each styling chair on the salon?s main floor, where stylists twist hair into updos and add alluring highlights. A small hallway leads patrons to private treatment rooms, where staffers thread eyebrows and daub nails with organic polishes from brands such as SpaRitual and Zoya. The cutting-edge Sudatonic infrared body-wrap system can help clients with weight loss, cellulite reduction, and detoxification. Wrought-iron lamps illuminate the walls of the salon, which are painted a vibrant yellow to help tropical birds perch on them undetected.
Equipped with clippers, a comb, and a passion for hair, the skilled stylists at Dahlia transform tresses with a diverse array of cuts and coloring treatments. They’ll also wrangle finicky hair with a straightening treatment or nix unflattering fuzz from brow outskirts with a signature waxing session. Beverages are available during each service.
Jo-Anna Dirk owns one of Portland's most colorful personalities and?perhaps not coincidentally?one of its most popular hair-color salons. For more than 25 years, the professional stylist and National Educator with Paul Mitchell has infused strands with eye-catching color and highlights.
Given her own high standards, it's no surprise that Dirk has surrounded herself with a team that shares her broad base of styling knowledge. In addition to coloring and highlighting, they wax bikini lines, cleanse pores with facials, and conduct routine checks for hair snakes.
The mission of Stylist Nicole Armstrong is based on more than bolstering her clients' confidence with new looks. In fact, she aims to improve her effect on the planet as well by using Organic Color Systems products, a line created from certified organic extracts and natural ingredients. In addition to being vegan and cruelty-free, the products are also ammonia-free and thus won't strip hair of its natural moisture. But her efforts don't stop at color treatments; she aims to create a serene space where all of the products—including those she uses to clean her towels—are hypoallergenic.
Keeping with the atmosphere of Studio One and in consideration of those with allergies, Studio one asks that customers please refrain from wearing strong scented products to the appointments.
