I don't live in Portland, but I'm looking for a good hair salon, too. I used to style my hair, but I find that it is much easier to get it blown out every few weeks. I also love to have my hair colored professionally. When I dyed my hair by myself a few years ago, it was pumpkin orange instead of the blonde I wanted!

I'm really surprised nobody mentioned http://www.portlandareahomesales.com/

If you click on the market insider tab at the top you can see community stats, info about median age, income, even education level in the area, and tons more. If you select the spas/beauty under the attractions/recreation menu and see your potential competition on the map. Also easily compare areas side by side. I use it all the time. There is a map view on market insider that will let you see restaurants, shops, grocery stores, churches, parks, museums... Its all there. You can also freely search all of the Oregon MLS to see whats for sale. This includes commercial and mixed use.

p.s.
It's like a user friendly version of the census on steroid and caffeine.

Hopefully you got your business started. People are now wanting to do laser hair removal and so you need to keep up to date

You can do the research to see where the majority of them are. If you would like a list of Portland zip codes I can provide them at your request -email me at jlizotte@prunw.com

I would love to begin to send you particular properties that would work for your business. I would just need your specific criteria. I have access to both residential and commercial listings and would be happy to help you out. Another way to find a property is to choose a live/work set up, where you can live above the salon.
I can get you demographics of any neighborhood of interest as well.

If you would like the info such as Guide, “How To Start A Business in Oregon.” or The “Employer’s Guide for Doing Business in Oregon” which provides a general checklist along with contact information and information on government requirements for Oregon’s employers you can contact the Business Information Center Corporation Division, Secretary of State Business Information Center

Wow, thanks! I had no idea there were so many beauty places in this area! I'll have to check some of those out. I think it does hair good to switch up stylists every once in a while.

Hi Lianna,

I can't help you with those statistics, but I've got a great listing in Sellwood that would be perfect for a salon. See the link below.
