Elements of Style’s 23 stylists and aestheticians bring together their individual specialties as they care for clients from follicle to toenail. They collectively tackle anything from a basic trim to a frost treatment ideal for those trying not to stand out among gangs of snowmen. Therapists, meanwhile, can soothe beleaguered muscles with hot-stone massages, and body wraps with salt-glow treatments leave skin looking vibrantly healthy. The center also caters to more technical concerns with med-spa-quality treatments, including microdermabrasion sessions and cosmetic laser treatments that help to conceal the appearance of acne blemishes.
Urban Colorz Salon's team of stylists brings out the best in every type of hair, whipping up face-flattering looks for both men and women in a welcoming studio. Your mane’s day at the spa begins as an experienced snipper clips tresses into shape, emphasizing beloved facial features and deemphasizing less beloved features, such as beauty marks bearing an uncanny resemblance to Alexander Hamilton.
With a team of image experts on hand, including a medical doctor and a highly talented laser technician, the Picasso staff fashions faces and sculpts skin into individual aesthetic masterpieces. Like a champion gamer at an arcade, the certified skin-sage will aim a precision laser at stubbly scoundrels, zapping them until they gradually fade out of existence or more quarters are required. Most individuals need an average of three to five sessions to achieve an ideal level of bristle banishment, and patients are encouraged to work with the laser technician to determine the number that's right for them.
At Volero Hair Salon, a certified Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, artistic director Victor Hugo and his team of stylists utilize their experience to keep locks healthy, lustrous, and vibrant. Surrender tangled tresses to a hair hero, who will unsheathe well-oiled scissor fingers and transform ill-mannered mop-tops into polite coiffures during a doting haircut. Then blondes can bring out their inner brunettes, and brunettes can bring out their inner Indigo Girls with a full coloring, which transforms lackluster locks with natural-looking pigment. While stylists clip and color, patrons can feed eyes on surrounding works from guest artists, or on their own reflections in the handcrafted mirrors.
With three locations in the Portland area, Nail Garden makes its expert, relaxing manicures and pedicures convenient to a wide swath of clients. Nail technicians pamper clients as they decorate finger- and toe-tips with standard polishes or CND Shellac coats that form a resilient gel layer to preserve colors or evidence of winning lotto tickets. They also have stylists on hand to cut, color, and style clients hair so they leave feeling their best from the tops of their heads to the tops of their toes.
