For glow-inducing facials, organic waxing (bikini, brows, et al), vegan eyebrow tinting, and skilled clean-makeup application using brands like Intelligent Nutrients, One Love Organics, and RMS, this cozy, women-run Portland studio is by far your best bet. The studio is open seven days a week, the vibe is low-key, and the aesthetic is akin to hanging out a friend's bungalow rather than an aesthetician's office.
3525 NE M.L.K. Blvd., Boise
The design at Löyly (which is Finnish for the steam that comes off hot rocks at a sauna) is distinctly Scandinavian, with straightforward hardwood floors, clean light woods, and minimalist wooden lounge chairs occupying the communal space. It’s just a $23 fee to get in, but we recommend springing for one of their famous—obviously Swedish-style—massages, which start at a reasonable $45. This is the larger of the two locations (with more saunas), but there's another outpost in Southeast Portland.
