Portland >Facials and Waxing by Jane Cowan
As a self-employed esthetician, Jane Cowan provides customized services for both women and men. In 1999 she graduated from Cosmetology Careers Unlimited and furthered my education through Bio-Therapeutics Microdermabrasion training courses. Jane Cowan worked for Dosha Salon Spa for two-and-a-half years before beginning to work for herself. She works with clients on a one-on-one basis in a comfortable, quiet and private treatment room. …
Before the waxing even begins, you will feel as though you've known Jane for years. She's personable and the work she does is immaculate. Even Anthony Davis' unibrow doesn't stand a chance.
Went shopping to Dunedin to cute little shops like Darling Memories,Amanda Austin and Rose Garden. Everyone in these shope were nice and welcoming. I wanted to end my shopping experience with a nice cup of Java.
Whe I walked to Cappucino's Bakery...I saw a couple of customers and once person working behind the counter so I decided to sit and but my bags down. When I sat on the counter...the lady working there didn't aknowledge me but I figure she was alone so I didn't take it personally. Since I really was craving my cup of Java I decided to patiently wait. After taking the order from customers she went to the back and dissapeared for 20 minutes.
At this point I really needed to go to the bathroom. When she came of to serve the people I asked if she can buzz me to the bathroom and she ignored me. I asked again and she SHOUTED at me and I saw a mean lady looking at me. She yelled"don't you see that I'm working alone here...if you need a public bathroom there's one around the corner". I metioned to her that I was a potential customer and I have been patient by waiting 20 minutes and she didn't have to yell at me and send me to a public bathroom. I've had my bags here and that she shouldn't abuse me for no reason.
After that...she yelled at me again and told me that I should leave her shop. SHe mentioned that she was the owne and I was shocked and couldn't believe that she was being so cruel to me for no apparent reason. She basically was taking out her job or personal frustrations on me. I was really shocked and like any women with some integrity I defended my case....and tol her that she was very cruel and bitter and that this is no way to treat a customer who has been patiently waiting. She then did the ultimate...she called the cops so they can escort me for no reason. Since it was so unfair...I figured I would wait and explain my side of the story to the cops...that I was basically waiting 20 minutes for a cup of Java and to use the bathroom and this lady was just cruel with me for no apparent cause...just being abusive towards me from her personal frustrations.
I decided to leaven and not let her ruin the wonderful experience I had with other merchant owners in the area. I saw her as being cruel, catty and bitter and left without take in it personally.
I have travelle all over the world and come from a family of restaurant owners and I ive that the owner of Cappuccino's Bakery a 0 out of 10 rating for cruelty, abuse, and and hateful energy. Have a spirit lady...it's Xmas. She is a lady Scroodge.
If you are visiting Dunedin...stay away if you are happy, attractive and fairly young because this witch will hate on you and give you ill treatment. She represents the haters of the world who hate the happy, sexy, beautiful and cheerful young women. STAY AWAY from the abuse. Oh by the way I saw she did the same to a customer on a Yahoo Travel Review....this MErchant will give Dunedin a bad name.
One of the best parts of my beauty team.
Jane is an angel and a master at what she does. For the last two years she has shaped my brows, and has taken my skin from dull and spotty to glowing. My brows are a challenge because they quickly get out of control, but Jane has tamed them into submission.
I love coming to see Jane because I get an hour of relaxation along with lots of laughs and a good time. The extra touches during the facial, like the parafin hand dip and shoulder rub are amazing. I always leave happy and feeling like I have been pampered!
I highly recommend Jane to anyone who is looking for someone to add to their beauty team! Jane is a gem!
Sweet wax!. Love Jane. Love the space and even though our time is quick together, she always manages to crack me up whilst waxing off my mustache and unibrow! This lady will make you look fantastic!
I Love This Woman!. I have had both facial and waxing services from this dear lady for quite some time and have been pleased every single time. I go to her religiously every six weeks and have been greeted every time with a meticulously clean and well-appointed space as well as a smile. She has been flexible with appointment times, able to get me in last minute for emergencies, uses top shelf product, pays special attention to sanitation, and makes me laugh every time I see her. Please, for your own good, do not miss this opportunity to go to the best esthetician in town!
AMAZING. Jane is amazing. She does my brazillian wax and also gave me my first facial. The waxing is always meticulously perfect and as painless as can be expected. I was nervous going to her the first time, it can be uncomfortable removing your pants and getting into awkard positions with a stranger. She immediatley made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The facial I got left my skin glowing for days. she even gave me smaples of fabulous products to try at home! She has a knack for conversation that will get your mind off any awkwardness.She is hilarious and the shop is darling, you just enjoy being there. I highly recommend you go see her.
Have an oddly good time.... Jane is the only esthetician that actually makes me laugh while providing professional and efficient service. I will never go to anyone else and I couldn't recommend her more. If you are looking for someone that does a fantastic job while making you feel comfortable - Jane is for you.
Best aesthetician in PDX.
Jane Cowan is the best facial you will ever get and I would know, as I've been getting facials every month since I read somewhere that it was a really good idea (the truth of that is debatable but damn is it ever fun). She has great energy, a wonderful studio, and makes my skin all sparkly. And she uses good products- not that commercial-chemical smells like hawaiian flora and promises eternal youth and beauty whilst giving you cancer goo. And she waxes, and she's really good at it. And she does paraffin hand treatments. Hooray!
Best facial in Portland, and without any attitude or costing your mortgage payment (Aequis I am looking at YOU). Highly recommended.
A Miracle. Jane is amazing! I looked at a picture before I started seeing Jane and one post and the post picture literally looks as if my skin has been airbrushed. I highly recommend Jane for all of her services.
Absolutely amazing... All the reviews are true!.
I was scared away from facials by a bad experience nearly a decade ago. My skin is extremely sensitive and quite dry, so I'm hesitant to experiment with new treatments. But with a wedding around the corner, I knew I needed to give it another try. I was excited to see Jane because she had more than 30 reviews on Citysearch and all of them were five stars ? you never see that!
After one facial and eyebrow waxing with Jane, I have recommended her to all of my friends. In fact, I actually feel sorry for my friends who don't live in Portland and can't see her. Her asethetician skills are impressive to say the least; my skin was pampered and glowing from the moment I left, and it has been so much more responsive to my regular skincare routine ever since. She gave me a bunch of little product samples, and I've loved every one. During my appointment, she said that she thinks every person has something they are meant to do. We Portland girls are so fortunate that she found her gift and is here to bring out our most beautiful skin.
And on a more personal note, she is unbelievably fun, warm-hearted, personable, kind, and downright cool. As other reviewers have said, you feel like you're hanging out with your best friend. She's a fantastic conversationalist and really listens. I definitely plan to make facials with Jane part of my regular routine from now on, long after the wedding is over!
She is Awesome. I survived my very first brazilian thanks to Jane. She made me feel comfortable from the start - totally at ease. The cozy studio, great music, and wonderful easy-flowing conversation made me forget (for the most part!!) what was going on down there. I will be recommending her to friends. You won't regret your time with Jane - She makes the world a much brighter place and does excellent work. She does know her stuff. She has herself a new regular client.
