The Best Salons in Eugene


I talk about the best places in Eugene to go for nails, waxing, tanning, spray tanning and hair in this post.

No offense to this gorgeous city that I go to college in (Eugene, Oregon), but it’s not a great place to get beauty treatments done. I think that most University of Oregon ladies can attest to the fact that practically every salon here overcharges and does a crumby job.

But after four years of college, I’ve finally discovered a few places worth going in Eugene. As I’m about to graduate and depart from this fine city, I want to leave those of you who plan on sticking around with a short list of local beauty recommendations.

For Nails:
City Nails and Spa
440 Coburg Road, Eugene, OR 97401
(541) 636-4432

Takes walk-ins and appointments.

Highlights – City Nails and Spa:
+Does a fantastic French manicure for, I believe, $17. I got my nails done four days ago and I’m yet to see a single chip. Everyone keeps asking me if they’re real. Yes, my nails are 100% natural. This salon just did such a great job that they look acrylics.
+Clean facility.
+Friendly staff. You can tell that all the employees actually enjoy working there, which I think is pretty cool.

For Waxing:
Hair Masters
609 E 13th Ave
Eugene, OR 97401
(541) 484-3143

Call ahead and MAKE SURE you ask for Norene! (She doesn’t work Wednesdays.)

Highlights – Hair Masters:
+Cheap waxing! Eyebrow waxes are around $10 and Brazilians are around $50.
+Norene is the best thing about this place. She’s a total sweetheart and does a great job. Over the years that I’ve been seeing her, she’s become more than my waxer, she’s my friend. And she’s the only person I trust to do my waxing at Hair Masters.

For Tanning:
Alright, I’ll admit it – I tan every so often. But I’m really, really trying to stop completely! As I’m sure you all know, it’s absolutely horrible for you. But if I’m going to go tanning, I make sure I go to a place that has high quality beds so that I can go for less time and absorb fewer harmful rays. Sunsational Tanning is the best place I’ve found in Eugene.

Sunsational Tanning
450 Coburg Road
Eugene, Oregon 97401
(541) 338-8267

Takes walk-ins and appointments, but it gets busy so you probably want to call ahead.

Highlights – Sunsational Tanning:
+The stand-up bed! You’re guaranteed to get color, but I’ve never gotten burnt from it.
+ When you buy a tan or a package, you’re really buying minutes. So, if you’re pale like me, you can get two tans out of a 12-minute single stand-up bed purchase.
+Attractive and clean facility.
+Walking distance from City Nails and Spa (and Chipotle! ☺)

For Spray Tanning:
A MUCH healthier way to get a summer glow!

Color of Beauty Tanning Salon
36 East 17th Avenue
Eugene, Oregon 97401
(541) 686-8846

Call ahead to make an appointment!

Highlights – Color of Beauty:
+The Versa Spa treatment at Color of Beauty gives an incredibly natural, non-streaky, non-orange glow. I’ve been getting spray tans for years (since my sophomore year of high school) and the Versa Spa is by far my favorite.
+It has a hilariously cheesy picture to promote it on the website! I just have to post this:
+Color of Beauty is doing a Versa Spa package for the month of May! Get a free spray tan with the purchase of any spray tan package. Ask about this deal at the register.

For Hair:
I’ve gotten my hair done at a million different places in Eugene. Sadly, I don’t recommend any of them. Take a day trip out of Eugene and go to Magnum Opus in Portland if you want someone to do a good job on your hair.

I hope this guide to beauty treatments in Eugene, Oregon was helpful! Please, feel free to leave comments letting myself my readers know of other salons that you recommend in the city.

Thanks for scouting out and saving me some research!! I'm definitely heading to City Nails & Spa because yours look AMAZING! I agree with Color of Beauty for spray tans (it pains me to say I had a few my sophomore year, haha). I have to give a shout out to my girl Alicia at Aveda Gervais Salon in the 5th Street Public Market (they also have a location on West 5th, I think it is). Everyone there (especially Alicia) is awesome (and often young/hip) and always gives great cuts! I don't color my hair so I don't know how well they do with color treatments, but I assume well.

It looks like you really did your research. Believe it or not… Men like manicures. The pedicures often tickle too much on my feet, but I need to look good if I want to be successful in the business world.

Great tips.

Great post, Sarah :) 4 college years too late! Now how about a review on Portland? Heh…

Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

Hey Sarah! I just stumbled upon your site, lots of great information! For those who are looking for a good place to get your hair done in Eugene, I have found Bello to do a great job!

Hey Sarah, Love your site. I believe I spent around an hour reading everything! I also had some problems with Latisse. I look forward to trying some other lash enhancing products. I'm also a product junkie…but I'm a little older. I'm now getting botox and some other procedures. Girl's gotta do, what a girls gotta do. Anyway I have gotten to a point where I'm highly bored with my hair. If you have found any good salons through someone else here in Eugene, or Springfield, can you e-mail me who, if anyone can do a beautiful job on baby fine hair?

Hi Shelly,

Thanks for the support :) I suggest trying LiLash instead of Latisse. I'm using it now, and I much prefer it. It's a lot gentler on your eyes.

As far as hair salons go, I never had much luck when I lived in Eugene. I'm back in Portland now and I go to Caitlin Miller at Au Salon, who is awesome! I shoot you an email if any other salons in Eugene pop into my mind though!

It’s remarkable to pay a visit this website and reading the views of all mates concerning this post, while I am also eager of getting knowledge.

I went to City Nail and Spa in Eugene to get a pedicure last weekend and it was the worst pedicure I've ever had! I've gotten good pedicures there before but I won't be coming back after this one! Michael, whom did my pedicure didn't look at me or say one word to me in the whole entire 15-20 minutes it took him to give me a pedicure, no hi how are you, is the water a good temp, etc. I don't want or expect a full-on conversation but a friendly attitude that makes you feel like they actually WANT you there and you're not an inconvenience is nice. He was busy watching a football game (his head was turned away from me to look at the back wall) while giving me the quickest foot massage ever. I had to wait a half an hour for my mom's pedicure to get done and the lady next to her who started after us got done the same time as my mom too. When my mom and I complained about my pedicure the receptionist didnt say sorry your unsatisfied or offer anything to make us happy, she did say well Michael is fast because he is really experienced and the other nail techs are new and slow. Won't be coming back!

Gervias does a great job on hair! I've gone and seen Kelly for both my cut and color and she did a fabulous job. I'm originally from Orange County, CA so I was nervous about getting my hair done in Eugene, but Gervais is wonderful! They use great Aveda products, are friendly, and of course they do a wonderful job on hair.
