At Sorelle Spa Salon, custom facials infused with botanically derived Aveda and Bumble and bumble products target everything from blemishes to aging skin. Nail technicians, meanwhile, glaze fingertips with OPI or Shellac polish after dipping hands and feet in paraffin and exfoliating them with a gentle scrub. Sorelle Spa Salon's massage therapists prefer to relax tense back muscles with hot stones, a safe alternative to hot coffee mugs.
Instead of just focusing on the physical, esthetician Tanya Khounphachansy incorporates a holistic approach to her work—one that has served her well for 17 years. Her belief that the body, mind, and spirit are intertwined and should be cared for equally is reflected in her selection of services. Within her tranquil confines, she wields natural products such as papaya enzymes and honey as she helps her clients de-stress and rejuvenate through facials and mani-pedis instead of throwing rocks at the windows of abandoned warehouses.
According to Tan Down Under, some of the darkest, boldest tans in the Portland area were nurtured inside the salon's spacious premises. The business has more than 20 different tanning beds, meaning customers rarely have to wait in line to get their tan on. The shelves are stocked with high-quality Hoss lotions designed to aid the bronzing process. For sunless tanning, there's a ProSun Omega spray tan booth, which imparts a golden glow without requiring users to come into contact with UV rays or hateful hermit crabs at the beach. Also on the premises is Beauty Factory, a full-service hair and nail salon that offers everything from cuts and coloring to perms and updos.
