At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
Housed inside Tousled Salon, licensed aesthetician Jennifer Long draws from her past experience of studying at the Aveda Institute to pamper clients skin. No matter why you're stopping in, her singular goal is to understand each client's individual skin type and customize her treatments to each person. Her expertise runs the gamut of skincare treatments, from luxurious facials to full-body waxing. No matter what service you opt for, she leaves skin looking young enough to be ineligible for "adult swim" at the pool.
At Ajara Aesthetics, experienced aesthetician Nicole Dettra treats complexions to 90-minute seasonal facials administered in a spa snugly situated on the grounds of the Willamette Wellness Center. Emanating the fresh, seasonal aromas of cinnamon, peppermint, and pine, the facial focuses on rehydrating the face, safeguarding skin from the severity of cold weather and scratchy face sweaters. Before or after treatment, clients are invited to seek further serenity by taking a stroll on one of the wellness center's scenic walking trails, reflect on life by the frog pond, or admire the transient beauty of squirrel holiday-light displays.
Sport Clips specializes in creating a just-for-the-dudes atmosphere that’s tailor made to tickle the Y chromosome. "Men's women" stylists futz with the follicles of men and boys in a sport-themed environment decorated in a bold black, white, and red color scheme—evoking racing flags, professional sports teams, and jokes about newspapers. Your MVP haircut begins with a consultation about the look you want, followed by the precision haircut itself. Your guy-savvy stylist will then dole out a delightful scalp massage with Tea Tree shampoo. After a dollop of leave-in conditioner, you'll get to savor the warmth of a barbershop-style steamed towel and feel sports-related frustration melt away during an upper neck and shoulder massage. In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.
