What began in 1985 as a small, six-chair salon has evolved into Color Room Salon & Day Spa, the realized vision of beauty expert and master stylist Pamela Anderson. Today, Anderson's 4,200-square-foot space boasts 18 styling chairs, 25 employees, and membership in both the National Cosmetology Association and the Chicago Cosmetology Association. You can see Anderson's Romancing Freedom collection in a fashion shoot featured in Salon Magazine and on the website Tupelu. Hair's How magazine noted that "body and volume, form and ease of detailed styling" were showcased in the "dramatic, glamorous" collection.
Anderson pours as much heart and creativity into the design of her salon as she does into updos and highlights. Estetica magazine says that she has successfully used a "refreshing palette of bright colors" to create a modern ambiance that, like a rapper sampling an Enya tune, is best described as "urban chic meets New Age charm." Warm red and orange tones are juxtaposed with an abundance of green plants, and red crystal vases and colorful abstract paintings boldly accent the walls' muted hues.
The caring team outfits guests with comfy robes for services ranging from cuts, colors, and Hairtini steam-conditioning treatments to indulgent mani-pedis, facials, and massages. The staff also gives back to the community, hosting charitable functions for organizations such as the National Autism Association of Northwest Indiana, the St. Jude House in Crown Point, and the Ronald McDonald House.
