A place “where it’s good to be vain”! Beaverton’s Vanity Junkie Boosts Client Confidence
Walking into Vanity Junkie, located in downtown Beaverton, the first thing you notice is the friendly luxury rock and roll aesthetic. Vanity Junkie is the only salon in the area to feature a truly fun and eccentric environment due to the thoroughly tattooed yet humble staff.
Salon owner, Sara Gray, and her independent crew of dedicated stylists have been helping suburban moms, wives, and a diversity of clients be more beautiful in Beaverton since 2015. Gray has been a salon owner for over 13 years and in the industry for 23 years.
When asked about the salon’s success and rave reviews she quickly answered “You’ve got to be a leader.” Patrons look and feel beautiful after visiting Vanity Junkie thanks to the artistic sensibility and capability of its staff.
In addition to traditional salon services like hair, make up, and waxing, Vanity Junkie keeps up with the latest beauty trends that actually work including: micro needling, dermaplaning, oxygen facials, and lash extensions.
There is also an emphasis on using healthier beauty products that are paraben free and ocean friendly. Vanity Junkie’s staff regularly takes continuing education classes, while the salon itself hosts classes for other stylists in the area. These efforts serve to keep the business professional, current, and sustainable while maintaining a funky eclectic vibe.
The tagline for Vanity Junkie is “Where it’s good to be vain,” because Sara wants her customers to “feel good about who they are and like how they look.” By building up client confidence, not only does their self-esteem go up, but customers can share more kindness due to being less insecure.
Gray loves that her salon is located in Beaverton because the town “feels like the beginning of something bigger,” and it “allows for 100% success in family and business.” Most of her staff “grew up in the suburbs and enjoy city life,” but “highly value the calm,” of Beaverton.
This award-winning salon wants the community to know, “We are easy going tatted up suburban moms and wives who want to make you feel good about who you are… and do badass hair”
