About Adriana

Adrian Ryding - Licensed Esthetician

Adriana’s passion for the beauty industry began in 2005 while attending The Aveda Institute in Victoria, British Colombia.  She spent the first few years of her career in spas, finding the opportunity to help guests improve their skin and relax from everyday stress incredibly rewarding. She thought she would do it forever.  She fell into the waxing industry by chance, as a temporary job after the spa she was working at was sold.  That temporary job turned into 9 years with the Portland-based waxing only company, first as a waxer, then promoted to Salon Director when they expanded to Eugene. 

Adriana is a master at helping her guests to feel comfortable in a situation that could be somewhat unnerving. Her favorite thing about her job is the happiness a first-timer feels when they realize the waxing experience is not scary or awful, but is actually something that can be super enjoyable and fun.  After getting waxed by Adriana you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!

When not helping the people of Eugene look and feel their best, Adriana can be found  playing tennis, doing hot yoga, volunteering at the Greenhill animal shelter, or working on improvement projects on her fixer-upper condo.
