Stylist Paula Miller has more than 15 years of hairstyling experience, which she puts to use cutting, conditioning, and coloring hair from a bright and airy booth inside Indulgence Salon. She also adds volume and texture to locks with updos and perms. Paula uses Vivitone, Colure True Color Care, Joico, and ISO haircare products, among others.
The trio of owners behind Pamper Me Massage & Day Spa each contribute something unique to their business: Gary Lindquist is the financial backer, Daniel Lindquist is the promoter and go-to guy, and Eva Fleck is the face of the company. Their team of skilled specialists comes in three parts as well, much like a short fantasy novel adapted into an extremely long film series. Their nail tech pampers hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and hand-painted nail art. The aesthetician purifies pores with facials, body wraps, and sauna sessions, and tints exteriors with airbrush tanning and prune unwanted fuzz with wax. For full-on relaxation, the massage therapist plies bodies with techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, hot stone, and prenatal.
With nearly 40 years of combined experience, Escape Salon co-owners Angie Lara and Lisa Bair cut and style hair and beautify 'dos with color, perms, and conditioning treatments. Along with haircare, the salon also offers infrared-sauna sessions, a stress-relieving detox that can also help boost metabolism and promote weight loss.
Salon Paradise Owner Kim Lewis has devoted her professional life to infusing her clients with a boost of confidence and beauty, spending nearly a quarter of a century in the hair industry and leasing a station at Classic Touch Hair Salon in Keizer Plaza. Today, Kim Lewis owns the salon itself—now Salon Paradise—where stylists and technicians sculpt hair, shape toes and fingertips, and wax skin to a smooth silkiness with a touch of pampered luxury. “There’s a lot of therapy that goes into a pedicure,” Lewis told the Keizertimes. “The massages alone are 10 to 15 minutes.” Lewis applies this full-service ethic to each treatment in the unisex salon’s repertoire, from hair feathering to deep-relaxation hot-stone massages.
As visitors enter the temple to tranquility, a verdant collection of potted flowers and leafy ornamental plants evokes the atmosphere of a distant tropical vacation spot or geographically adjacent greenhouse. Complementary scalp massages cherry top each haircut, and brow waxing, shellac manicures, and antifrizz hair-smoothing treatments produce glamorous makeovers.
Bronze Planet's family-operated tanning salon and dedicated staffers offer bronzing-edge equipment and specialized knowledge to help clients cheat on the sun. With a one-month membership, clients can limitlessly bask in the glow of the level one Euro 532 bed, which features internal cooling fans in the canopy and bench. The two-spray-tan package is ideal for clients who need an immediate golden glow and tanners who are allergic to UV rays. Spray tans are issued in the cozy confines of the MyMyst 1500, which uses aerosol misting to produce an evenly-tanned, streak-free finish that's customized to each client's skin tone.
