Salon Dolce offers a ‘total experience’

Not one to let an opportunity slip by, artist-cosmetologist Kandi Legg didn’t hesitate when she saw a chance to move her full-service  Salon Dolce to the recently-vacated building at 509 Chetco Ave.

Legg contacted her friend, massage therapist Connie Twinning, at her Spruce Street studio, Of Time and Touch, and invited her to move her business into the new Salon Dolce location.

Plans were quickly made to turn Salon Dolce into a total experience where clients can find both external and internal beauty.

An accomplished artist, Legg redecorated the salon to create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, with appropriate music and fragrance.

She said she’s dedicated to providing services and products that will create harmony and beauty for her clients.

Legg said she uses Aveda beauty products designed to be environmentally friendly. Her salon is the only one on the Oregon coast using Aveda, she said, because the company is very selective.

She said she shares the philosophy behind the Aveda mission statement: “Our mission is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.”

Massage therapist Twining said she, too, believes in using products created to increase the enjoyment and health benefits for her clients. She said she uses specially formulated raindrop therapy oils that are good for the skin and can be absorbed by the body at a cellular level.

She said massage “lowers the blood pressure, calms the nerves, and raises endorphins.”

Twining gave up a successful career with Nike Corp., she said, to become a massage therapist when she discovered how wonderful massage could be.

“I had a massage, and it was amazing. I didn’t know that one could be without pain, and I wanted to provide that same wonderful feeling for others,” she said.

For an experience that may help calm holiday stress, she advises a call to Salon Dolce.

To make an appointment with Legg, who is available Wednesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., call 541-661-3825.

For an appointment with Twining, who is in the salon Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon, call 541-661-2467.

  • U.S. economy slows in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favourable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a slow pace of stock accumulation by businesses and a wider trade deficit, but the underlying fundamentals remained solid. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. With consumer spending accelerating at its quickest pace since the first quarter of 2006 and sturdy gains in other measures of domestic demand, the slowdown in growth is likely to be temporary. Growth in consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, was revised down by one-tenth of a percentage point to a 4.2 percent pace in the fourth quarter, still the fastest since the first quarter of 2006.
