|SALON SURVIVING AFTER EIGHT YEARS|
|August 29, 2000 11:00 pm|
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.
