Portland is known for its unique sense of earthy style and quirky beauty. A girl has to be bike-ready, work-casual, and fresh as the Portland Rose Festival from transit to dinner. Luckily, Portland has as many beauty options as great restaurants when looking to meet beauty needs.

For the best in hair and makeup, Portland hair salons like New Vintage Beauty Lounge on N. Mississippi Avenue give little old-fashioned pampering, along with an atmosphere and service that leave patrons feeling relaxed, pampered, and energized with a fresh new look. Blush Beauty Bar on Northwest 23rd carries the best brands north of the Golden State, including Stila, Dermatologica, and Lorac. Portland beauty salons like Blush makes it easy to pick up favorites, try out affordable items from the best brands on other coast, and get expert grooming services in a flash. Just to the northwest, a full selection of esthetician services can be found at The National Beauty, or a stop by Beauty Mark on Northeast 13th offers their famous apricot facials.

Portland may be a slightly smaller metropolis than its Seattle and LA cousins, but Southwest Washington Square boasts a Sephora and other high-end retailers. It’s not hard to find that perfect shade of polish to match a sundress, or score one that’ll resist chips when working on a bike. For those pining for the sun, Portland tanning salons offer an alternative to the overcast Pacific Northwest days. Bask in the Sun tanning and airbrushing in the Southwest and Tavin in the Alphabet district gives a quality but affordable fake bake. Another top pick is Organic Bronze Bar, the downtown airbrush go-tos, where they adjust the shade of each tan precisely to the patron’s preferences.

Whatever the needs, salons in Portland have a plethora of deals when it comes to affordable and natural beauty.
