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.
