I just joined Tan republic in Oregon City, it is one of the cleanest and friendliest salons I have been to. Also the salon has a very relaxing atmosphere, I especially like how there isn't a radio in every room playing a different station with competing volume levels. Instead there is just ambient music, which adds to the very spa-like atmosphere. Also the staff is very accommodating, I'm a bit of clean freak and I need to see my bed cleaned before I use it. Usually I get an ""Are you serious?"" look from other salons, but not here, the salon owner, I think her name was Lisa, just said ok and went over and cleaned the bed in front of me. To pdxbread, I have talked to the owner a couple of times and she told me that she purchased the salon in August of 2008, which was right when Tan Rio was merging with Tan Republic, and since she has taken over the salon and become part of Tan Republic the salon has new equipment, and is running smoothly. Also she told me that she trains her staff to not upsale the customer and instead try to work with them and decide what the best option for them is both pricewise and tanwise. Overall I think the salon is great and has really cleaned up it's act under it's new management.
Pros: Excellent salon, staff doesn't upsell you
Cons: Location is a little hard to find, sign is almost impossible to see from the road
