Before starting Olivia’s Skincare, Olivia worked as a certified medical assistant. Now, she uses her medical expertise to tackle tough skincare concerns. The aesthetician of more than 10 years specializes in treating hyperpigmentation, acne, and rosacea—she does so with a combination of natural skincare products from Pevonia and clinical solutions from Skin Script laced with powerful retinols and glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids. Olivia also offers waxing services that use Cirepil waxes and peer pressure from already detached strands to quickly remove hair.
The stylists and nail techs at Edge Instyle keep their clients looking put together and polished with cuts, color treatments, and mani-pedis. Waxing services whisk away unwanted body hair, whereas eyelash extensions add desirable length and flutter to lids or all-seeing third eyes. During treatments, complimentary beverages make visitors feel at home in this bright, clean salon.
At Bella A’More Day Spa and Salon, stylist Liz Mihalovits works alongside a team of veteran stylists and cosmetologists in breathing life into tired hairdos. A licensed cosmetologist for 14 years, Liz specializes in haircuts, color, wedding styles, and hair-smoothing treatments.
From precisely trimmed nails to perfectly arched eyebrows, the licensed staff at Pearl Nails beautifies bods down to the smallest detail. In addition to taming unruly cuticles or adding a splash of color to dreary toes, their technicians also turn mani-pedis into full-blown relaxation events with add-ons including salt rubs, hot towels wraps, and hot stone massages. They also quench thirsts before treatment with complimentary tea or coffee, and provide ample reading material while clients await treatment or practice for their speed reading competition. Their attention to detail extends far beyond their treatments and amenities – techs practice in-depth sanitation and sterilization after each treatment to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Growing up in rural Oregon, Shane immersed himself in magazines and television and became amazed by the trends popular outside his own sleepy town. But his interest in style did not bubble up completely until many years later, when he left a successful career in finance to pursue his true passion in life.
Now an experienced hairstylist and nail technician, Shane personally tests each product on the market before it ever touches his clients’ nails or hair. Using styling products by Schwarzkopf Professional hair care, he creates cutting edge cuts, colors, and updos. And when it comes to nails, he reaches for OPI Laquer or soak-off gel polish to create nail art that could include polka dots, flowers, or tiny celebrity mug shots.
Pink and White Nail Salon helps guests see the world through colored glasses: magenta, bubblegum, rose, and cream stripes brighten its walls, and each of the salon’s manicure and pedicure stations offers a scenic view of the Willamette River's pink waters. This cheerful decor sets the stage for the citrus scrubs and massages with almond hydrating lotion that enhance the salon’s manicures and the espresso foot soaks and massages with buttercream frosting that augment its pedicures. In addition to bedecking women’s fingertips with Shellac and gel, the nail technicians soften men’s palms, so often callused from sword fighting, and treat tiny hands to chocolate-infused warm towels during kid-focused manicures. As clients arrive to enjoy a relaxing morning or afternoon, they can leave their cars with valets who park and retrieve them at no extra charge.
