The experienced stylists and aestheticians at Devine Designs Salon & Spa tend to clients’ hair, faces, nails, and figures with restorative services and products from brands such as Aquage, Biosilk, and OPI. Locks receive upgrades beneath the swift shears of seasoned stylists, who shape face-flattering ’dos, twist tresses into intricate braids, and heighten hues as adeptly as shutterbugs photographing a rainbow for the cover of Vogue. Cleansing facials even out complexions to create optimal canvases for professional makeup applications, and waxing and laser hair-removal treatments oust unwanted fuzz. Lime-green and chocolate-brown walls surround the spa, whose studio lighting helps keep clients from mistaking their stylists for their tax collectors.
At Spa Lola, the goal is simple: to make all visitors, from veteran spa-goers to first-time guests, feel welcome. To this end, the staff focuses on cultivating a quaint, calming, and unpretentious atmosphere. Owner Amanda Drak, an aesthetician with over a decade of waxing experience, removes unwanted hair with antibacterial Nufree soy products. She also performs complex and nurturing facials in the shabby-chic spa, using plant-based Yonka products. By harnessing not only the fragrant components of each ingredient, but also the vitamins, fruit acids, and other trace elements, Yonka’s elixirs and beauty products help Drak revitalize the skin and thank the nose for making it through your recent protest on taking out the trash.
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.

Klotz adds vibrancy to nails with OPI polishes, rejuvenates skin complexion with Dermalogica skincare products, and adroitly applies UV-free airbrush tanning spray.
