SALON SURVIVING AFTER EIGHT YEARS

Marlenes Salon has seen hairstylists come and go since it opened eight years ago, but two faces remain consistent: Marlene Shields and Leslie Balmain.

The hairstylists remain, although since Shields marriage, she is splitting her home between Brookings and Albany. Therefore, starting Sept. 1, she will be available only every other week, Monday through Friday, by appointment, Shields said.

Balmain will continue to be available at the salon Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and evenings by appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, Balmain said.

Not only is Balmain keeping the shop open, but she has been serving as the landscaper.

Both Shields and Balmain have been hairstyling for 17 years and they have worked together since opening the shop eight years ago.

The salon prides itself in keeping updated on the latest styles and techniques and continues plans for expansion. They said they are currently seeking a manicurist.

For an appointment, call Shields at (541) 469-5678 or Balmain at 469-0184.

  • U.S. jobless claims data point to firming labor market
    The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose last week, but the underlying trend firmly pointed to strengthening labor market conditions. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 17,000 to a seasonally adjusted 283,000 for the week ended Oct. 18, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The four-week moving average of claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, fell to 281,000, the lowest level since May 2000, from a revised 284,000 in the previous week. "It shows that job creation continued to forge ahead in October," said Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capital Markets in Toronto.
