Pam – Owner/Manager

I began my career as a hair stylist and manicurist here at B2 Beauty (then known as Mar-Don’s Hair Fashions) when I was only 17 years old and newly-graduated from high school and from beauty school — I worked extra hard, juggling a tight schedule to complete both programs so I could get started in the profession as soon as possible.

From earliest childhood I’ve had a genuine passion for hairstyling. (Unfortunately, my Barbies and other dolls all ended up slightly bald because of the wear-and-tear of my early experiments with styling hair.) I consider myself very fortunate to have a career that is so interesting, rewarding and satisfying for everyone concerned.

Part of the pleasure for me (and for many of my clients) is keeping up with the newest hair styles and techniques. It can be fun to change things up once in a while just to keep life fresh, fun and exciting.

On the other hand, some clients really prefer to stick with a favorite comfortable hair style, and they appreciate knowing that I’m happy to provide them with the consistent cut and style that suits them best.

I do believe that, while it’s important for a professional to keep up-to-date with the latest fashions and styling techniques, it is also essential to really look at all clients as unique individuals — carefully evaluating the condition, texture and growth patterns of their hair, taking into account their facial shape & profile, and also considering the lifestyle and specific needs and concerns of each person. Do they want hair that is low maintenance, or are they willing and enthusiastic about spending more time on their hair? Do they want a professional look? A casual style? Or perhaps a cut that can be easily modified for both professional and casual settings? It’s important to me to meet the individual needs and challenges for each one of my customers.

Honestly, I enjoy all aspects of hair styling — tackling the trendiest cut, replicating traditional styles flawlessly, doing classic perms for curls or just body, and providing professional-quality coloring from the most subtle coverage to all-over highlights or maybe even a splash of a brilliant color woven in here and there — whatever enhances the desired look!

I’m also happy to wax, primp or pluck any facial hair while you are here, if needed. Just let me know what you want when you book your appointment.

Clearly Ray’s good heart is reflected in his generous care for his clients who need and deserve this special attention.

Joy

Joy first practiced her extensive barbering and hair design skills in Minnesota where she and her sister owned a salon for a number of years. She subsequently moved to Portland, and today she is proud to have cared for several generations of clients in the Raleigh Hills area.

Joy’s particular specialty is working with children, starting by gently helping them to feel comfortable with the procedures and atmosphere of the salon. She begins by introducing the youngsters to their first “Air Cut” and “waterless shampoo,” helping them to overcome any fears or confusion at the beginning, so their first “real” haircut will be familiar and effortless. Many grateful parents can testify to how well this gentle, patient approach has worked with their children.

Joy’s clients of all ages know and appreciate her gentle, expert touch. Many people claim that having a shampoo under her expert hands is a wonderful, therapeutic stress reliever. And when it comes to cutting hair, she works creative magic with her scissors, following natural hair patterns and growth with a free-style technique that results in a flattering, low-maintenance style. She has definitely honed her hair-cutting and barbering skills to perfection.

Joy is also an enthusiastic and skillful colorist, favoring the subtle results of gloss colors that blend with the grey, rather than covering it. Additionally she enjoys perming to add body or create curls as desired.
