I was recently in Las Vegas, to see the sights when I decided to explore the salon located in the hotel/casino where I was staying. Having always worked in a freestanding salon in a mid-west city, I was interested in meeting the hairdressers who worked in the hair salon on the 4th floor of the Imperial Palace hotel and casino. In the midst of the lights and glamour of the Las Vegas strip, I wondered what life might be like in the salon.I wasnít sure what to expect when I visited Shear Paradise Salon, but I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with small town smiles and hospitality. Mississippi native, Elaine Gray has owned Shear Paradise for over 15 years. She told me that at first she experienced a bit of culture shock but now life in Shear Paradise is not much different than in a small town salon. Elaine, stylist Lydia Boots and nail tech Lana Haskell have regular clients who live in Las Vegas. The trip through the casino and the ride in the elevator wonít keep them from their favorite hairdresser or nail tech. There are also regular clients from around the world who visit 4 or 5 times a year. Elaine tells me that they are family too, just like the weekly or monthly clients.
As you might guess, this Vegas salon team experiences many exciting times too, with clients from Paris, Australia, and Africa, too name just a few exotic locations. Sometimes there may be a language barrier, but the clients manage to make their needs known and receive the style or nail design they want. And of course we canít forget the many brides who will be getting married in one of the numerous wedding chapels in Las Vegas. Elaine, Lydia and Lana are easy to trust with these important bridal styles.
So, if you are planning to visit Las Vegas, whether for vacation, to try your luck at the tables, or to get married, I can recommend the women of Shear Paradise Salon for friendly service. You will feel as comfortable as if you were at home.
