Urbaca Salon is located in the Pearl District, right on the same block as Pearl Bakery. It’s very easy to find and there is free parking right across from the salon, but I’ll admit, I had never noticed it before I went for my appointment. It’s located in a building with some other offices, but the space is super bright and airy and it has a very modern feel with a Portland vibe.
Everyone who I encountered at the salon was super nice, and it’s definitely a relaxing atmosphere. I had my hair cut and my makeup done by Caitlyn; she was so sweet and really easy to talk to! She did a fantastic job with my cut and although I didn’t make any drastic changes, it felt so good to get my hair freshened up! She also did a great job with my makeup and it was just a fun experience!
I tried having Cam take my picture of my hair/makeup when I got home, but the lighting was a little funky since it gets dark so early now! (Daylight savings time is the worst…)
Sherry actually makes her own skincare products which she uses for facials and they sell in the salon. One of the things I really liked about my facial with her was that she was very non-judgemental; some estheticians I’ve gone to in the past have asked a million questions about what I’m doing to my skin currently and then tried to guilt me into buying a bunch of new products. Sherry was not like that at all, and just wanted to make sure I had a really relaxing experience!
Have a great weekend and don’t forget to enter my Minted giveaway – I’ll be announcing a winner on Monday so there is still plenty of time!
