a sugaring and skincare studio

dedicated to beautifying Portland one bombshell at a time.

We can’t wait to meet you!

OUR STORY

 

BEAUTY WITH A CONSCIENCE

When Anna Long-Stokes (CEO/Founder) created The Portland Girl in April of 2015, she wanted to break beyond traditional “beauty business standards” by creating a skin care and sugaring studio that was as unique as Portland itself. A studio that beautified Portland one bombshell at a time, while also giving back to our community and setting a high standard for how the “Skin Biz” should be done. We blend ancient beauty rituals with cutting edge skin care treatments. We feel that relaxation + results can sit side by side and neither has to be compromised.

We believe in using/carrying/selling products that pass our artisanal standards. No parabens. No sulfates. No phthalates. No weird dyes or fake perfumes and no testing on our furry animals!

Our mission: Give back to yourself and give back to your community. See our current “give-back” efforts HERE.

MEET THE TEAM

 ANNA LONG-STOKES

founder

About me: I love the sun (way more than any esthetician should…), salsa dancing after a shot of tequila, and convening with nature for grounding and inspiration. I’ve been an esthetician for 10 years and view each and every facial as a chance to make someone’s day, week or month just a little (ok, a lot) more pleasurable.

How did I get into this business? I had acne growing up and it was a big slap to my self-esteem. Everyone told me to do something different and none of them seemed to really know the root of my condition. After receiving my Master’s Degree in Social Work, I went on to study Esthetics in Illinois (750 hour training program). I quickly realized that the skin was more than skin-deep, and I threw myself into the study of energy work and Chinese medicine (including training in holistic nutrition and herbs).

When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring + biz-running, I’m: Cuddling with my 2 dogs & my hubby, escaping Portland in the Winter, and doing cool Psychic stuff over at annalongstokes.com.

What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? The kind that wears bright red lipstick to dress up yoga pants and sucks at gardening but loves getting her hands dirty!

SARAH L.

studio manager

About me: I was born and raised in Idaho, but moved around to Massachusetts and Seattle before settling in Portland. I’ve been here 15 years now and love what this city has to offer!

When I’m not at The Portland Girl I’m: Gardening or finding something active to do outside, hanging out with my family and friends, and fixing up my home.

What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? The kind that loves any and all outdoor adventure, and is so glad to live in proximity to both the mountains and the ocean! The rainy season has been the hardest part of Portland for me to adapt to, but it’s given me an opportunity to cultivate and appreciate the coziness of my home.

I love helping others feel and look their best!

What kind of Portland Girl are you? I’m the kind of Portland Girl that likes trying new things and is always down for an adventure.

LOGAN A.

studio coordinator / social media

About Me: I grew up in Northern California, near Lake Tahoe, and then moved down to San Luis Obispo for a few years. After a short while, I missed the trees, so I made my way up here, and I am loving it! My experimental makeup journey began when I was about 12, and ever since then, it has been my passion. I love how fluid and inclusive the beauty industry is, and how there are always new and exciting products being discovered. I also love how really anyone and everyone can find their place in this industry due to its versatility and ever-changing boundaries.

When I’m not at the Portland Girl: When I am not studying, I am usually found hanging out with my plants, or out buying new plant friends! My three favorite things in this world are my cats, my plants, and my partner so I spend as much time around them as I can. During the summer, I do switch it up a little and spend a ton of time at the river or the lake, either rafting or swimming. I also love going out with friends, whether it be to a new bar, to the beach, or on another adventure!

What kind of Portland girl are you? I am a bit of a mixed bag, I certainly love my days of spontaneity; when I get to go out adventure around Portland, or in the woods. I also definitely value getting cozy in my apartment and watching the rain or The Office. I do tend to hibernate a bit in the winter, so you won’t see me out and about too much then.

ASHLEY T.

esthetics team coordinator / trainer

About me: I moved to Portland in 2013 from North Dakota to obtain a dance certification. In 2019, I enrolled at The Aesthetics Institute to learn more about skincare. I struggle with acne and rosacea and I wanted to learn how to best take care of my skin so I could then help others take care of their skin too.

When I’m not at The Portland Girl I’m: Making jewelry for my Etsy shop, taking a dance class, or snuggling with my cats on the couch watching old sitcoms.

What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? I’m an herb garden having, rain smell loving, comic book reading,
bellydance performing, coffee drinking kind of Portland Girl who loves to sing along with Frank Sinatra.

SAVANNAH S.

esthetician / team trainer

About Me: I originally hail from a farm in southern Ohio, but moved to Chicago when I was 18 and lived there for thirteen years.  I came to Portland three years ago in search of warmer winters, new experiences, and the natural beauty that Oregon has to offer.  I became interested in aesthetics after growing up with acne and trying and failing to conceal it with an inch of makeup, which led me to learning about skincare and how unique and fascinating the human body is.

When you’re not at The Portland Girl, you’re… Spending time with my husband and daughter at home with our 17 year old cat Kittytown, USA or attempting a new hike with a baby strapped to my chest.  I also love reading, playing video games, and am a general fan of most fantasy/sci-fi forms of entertainment.

What kind of Portland Girl are you? The kind that is learning to be a new mom and loves a good brewery or cocktail bar, tasty restaurants, bookstores, parks, and waterfalls.

As an esthetician, I am able to creatively help people feel beautiful in their own skin and to achieve their skin care goals, all while being in a body-positive, warm and welcoming space. 

When I’m not at The Portland Girl I’m: You’ll catch me at local thrift stores, on a hike, or enjoying DIY projects at home. Oh, and coffee, candles, and cats are a few of my favorite things!

CINDY V.

esthetician

About me: I am an Oregon Native. What drew me to TPG is their philosophy of when you give unto yourself you give back to your community. I’m embracing the use of their take on ancient rituals with that cutting edge in the beauty world. I got into the beauty industry because I wanted to help others embrace the skin they are in. No matter where they are their skin journey. As I have struggled with it and that finally pushed me to start doing the work for myself.

When I’m not at The Portland Girl I’m: When I am not at TPG, I’m usually hanging out with my family (2 boys and husband), attending their sporting events. Exploring new recipes and cooking for my family. Picking up new fiction and self help books. Watching movies. This year I got into gardening and I’m loving it.

What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? I am definitely exploring the amazing trails the PNW has to offer, I enjoy finding new food cart pods, breweries, wineries. I enjoy Thrifting and attending Portland Timbers or Portland Trailblazer Games.

CHRISTY B.

esthetician

About me: I’m a native Portlander, born and raised. Growing up, I had my own personal problems with hyperpigmentation and I wanted to fix that for myself. Going through that process unleashed an inner confidence in myself that I didn’t know I had, and it inspired me to help other people with their skin issues and find their own inner confidence. I was drawn to The Portland Girl because of their mission statement, and because the products here are all natural, which is super important for skincare.

When I’m not at The Portland Girl I’m: Eating and going to the gym. I love all kinds of food, and discovering new restaurants is one of my favorite things to do. I like to try to recreate my favorite foods at home. I also love spending time with my family and dog.

What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? The type who finds the smell of rain comforting but appreciates the sun when we get it.

KELLY B.

guest services associate

About Me: I spent my childhood years in Portland until my family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where I lived for about thirteen years. While the Midwest certainly has its own kind of beauty, Portland has always felt like my true home. After college, I relocated back to Portland and have been enjoying all that the Pacific NW has to offer. My self-care journey really took off thanks to The Portland Girl. I have always dealt with dry, sensitive skin and had issues finding products that didn’t exacerbate those issues. I became instantly hooked on TPG products from my first use and haven’t looked back since!

When I’m not at the Portland Girl: Fighting the urge to constantly add to my indoor plant collection, listening to records, hiking, camping, gardening, and spending time with my partner and cat.

What kind of Portland girl are you? I love the rain! There’s nothing like spring and fall in the Pacific NW. I also like creating things with my hands and really enjoy making cold-process soap, crafting, sewing, baking bread, and DIY home projects.
