In a profile for Oregon Live, Matt Perry said he got the idea to open a coffee shop in 2010, shortly after returning from service in Iraq with the Oregon Army National Guard. He was taking a community-college business course and had to make the plans for a shop as an assignment. Two years later, he was able to realize his plans with the cozy two-story business named after his english mastiff.
Toasty aromas of Portland Roasting Coffee's beans waft through the shop as baristas fill mugs and steam silky lattes. Several healthy drinks provide an alternate jolt of nutrition, from berry smoothies enhanced with flax or multivitamins to green juices, such as the Army Greens with a blend of kale, spinach, ginger, and patriotic speeches. Upstairs, leather chairs and a cozy love seat reside in a bright space illuminated by sunlight filtering through arched windows.
The Beauty Parlor helps patients feel refreshed and youthful from top to toe, with skilled nail techs, massage therapists, aestheticians, and a stylist at the ready each day. A row of private suites beckon to visitors for relaxing and revitalizing treatments, as beauticians snip away split ends, thread unwanted follicles, file nails, and rub away complicated nautical knots from muscles.
Old Hollywood Hair's crew manages to stay up to date on hair trends by attending continuing education sessions held by its favorite brands. That's how, using products from Redken and Moroccan oil, Angie and the other stylists at the salon transform tired hairdos into fetching new styles.
At Avanti, a full-service salon, certified stylists cut, color, and style heads of hair. Haircuts revive lengths with the aid of shampoo and eye-catching styles, and highlights and color add new hues. Nail services anoint fingertips with Shellac or acrylics, and waxing services remove unwanted hair from eyebrows and upper lips.
The team at Beyond Beauty really does go above and beyond mere cosmetic services. They make every client feel completely welcome and relaxed, whether they're waxing lips, permanently tattooing eyebrows, or applying colorful acrylic nails. Though these ladies offer a full range of haircuts and facials, not all of their services are completely focused on outer beauty. Take their Swedish massages, for example, which ease away stress and tension with gentle strokes.
