Be true to you. Simple is beautiful.

Nomadic Goat is minimal, clean air, + eco conscious. Our intimate studio specializes in intuitive haircutting + natural brow shaping suited to each individual. At Nomadic Goat we want our clients to feel comfortable in their own skin. Through exploration + empathy we work to elevate our clients. We believe beauty is a feeling + we want to pass that feeling on to everyone we meet. 

We are nestled on a sunny corner in Portland’s West Bayside neighborhood. Our studio is filled with beautiful natural light, an abundance of plant life, + enjoyable tunes, bringing forth the airiness, peacefulness, + relaxation that is Nomadic Goat.

Founder

Natural Brow Artist

There is so much power + beauty within our individuality. I want everyone who leaves my chair to feel confident + empowered.

I have been a natural brow artist for over a decade. I shape eyebrows using only tweezers. I believe this is the most precise and gentlest way to transform eyebrows. Tweezing allows me to create a natural + bold brow suited to each individual with minimal upkeep. With tweezing, there is no damage done to the delicate skin around the eyes.  Whether you have over-tweezed, under-tweezed, or are new to tweezing altogether, we can come up with a brow shape suited to your lifestyle, as well as your personal style.

Founder

Master Hairstylist

I have always felt the most joy when I am doing something creative. Being in the hair industry for two decades has allowed me to channel my creative drive and develop my own unique and intuitive style of cutting and styling. My past experience as a salon owner in Boston has allowed me to cultivate an environment where clients feel like they aren’t just a number in my chair, but instead know they are in a safe place where they are truly being heard, and the foundation of a real relationship is being built.

Wake, shake, and go! hair is what I strive to give each of my clients. I love to encourage each person who sits in my chair to embrace the natural texture of their hair.

Come get happy with us.
