I began my training in 2006 at Euphoria Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, then moved to Portland, Oregon a few years later in 2010 and bought Akemi Salon in 2016. My favorite part of doing hair, is not only the transformation of the hair itself but the transformation of my clients’ attitude and view of themselves. I love to help my clients remember how beautiful they are, with something as simple as a fresh new cut or maybe color, or a whole new look all together. It’s easy to get lost in the stresses of the world and forget about ourselves. So I'm happy to bring the attention back to you. Throughout my career, I’ve constantly continued my education and experiences, working with several other studios, stylist, educators. And then finally choosing to make Akemi Salon my business was the best decision I ever made. I am proud to only use products that are cruelty free and that are healthy for the planet, people and animals. These products would include: Keune, Keune So Pure, Loma, Olaplex, Deva Curl and many others.
Much like the beauty industry itself, I am always evolving and if you wish to see my reviews or current photos of my work, please feel free to visit my:

The best things in life are Cruelty-Free.

Serving in the beauty and wellness industry since 2008, I started my career on the Florida coast as an apprentice to a Redken educator for one year before getting my own Master Certification and chair. Since then I have always focused on continuing salon education as an integral element to my craft. A self-proclaimed "hair nerd," I pride myself in providing a relaxing and luxurious salon experience to each and every one of my guests. We all deserve to feel beautiful, and I will always respect your visit to the salon as your own self-care vacation. I love getting to meet new people and designing captivating looks for your unique lifestyle. Specializing in everything from precision haircutting to color corrections, hair extensions to perm and texture services, I am confident I will provide excellent service and help you write your happy-hair story.

I have been doing hair for twenty years. Received my licenses in Cosmetology, Esthetics, Barbering, and business management training in Salt Lake City, UT. I have worked there for eight years and moved to Portland twelve and a half years ago and I'm still in love with this quirky town!
My experience over the years includes working in multiple salons, fashion shows, hair shows, multiple coloring techniques, precision cuts, barbering, special occasion up-do styles, funky, straight, fine thin, very thick, color correction, platinum bombshells, extensions, and last but not least, I am mostly known for my curly hair skills.
About curly techniques; I Absolutely will not use thinning shears and the razor in which causes frizzing. Techniques I use are through Deva Curl (Curly Girl book) and my own experiences with my own curls, and learning from others. I love the challenge of working with the most unruly, thick, curliest of hair! You may also look up reviews of me on www.naturallycurly.com.
Products I use and promote are silicone free, sulfate free, paraben free, and cruelty free. I use Deva Curl, Loma, and the Color lines I use mostly use are Keune and Goldwell.
Services are always guaranteed for up to 2 weeks. I treat my clients with patience, compassion, love and careful listening.
If you have any more questions please call me directly at: (503)688-3137 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be looking forward to meeting you! Xoxo Chai

I joined the beauty industry in 2006, knowing I would find a creative outlet that also makes other people feel good. My main objective as a hair stylist is to help my clients feel their best by assisting in finding a hairstyle that matches their lifestyle. Confidence is empowering and hair can add to this in a very real way. My background in art lends itself to flexibility in customization and attention to detail for every cut and color service. I enjoy utilizing colors within the natural hair color spectrum to create a "heightened reality" effect as well as creative color placement. I love cutting and use precision and point cutting techniques to create styles that range from structured to care free.
Please feel free to reach me @ (503)583-7908 or email@example.com and I look forward to meeting you soon!
