Tools of the Trade

There are some moments during your life that you will never forget.  A couple years ago Michelle, Salon Manager, walked past Tim's styling chair and over heard a client tell Tim he was a Hair God. He finished her blowdry a moment later, and responded with a witty comment.

“It’s not me, it’s the [YS Park] brush.”
— Timothy Pamment

Tim had been partly joking and partly speaking truth.  Yes, he is technically a brilliant stylist.  He did however bring up a great point that day.  A well made brush makes a world of a difference.  The YS Park brush enhanced his client's blowout; the brush smoothed and added shine to her hair.

Kevyn Aucoin has produced a line of cosmetic tools that is loved by both our Makeup Artist, Holly, and Salon clients.  The line carries 13 brushes, an eyelash curler, and pencil sharpener.  The brushes are natural goat hair and/or synthetic depending on the brush's purpose. They have been created to allow for precise application.

The beauty industry loves Shu Uemura's eyelash curler.  Kevyn Aucoin had assisted in the development of this curler.  He did express that he wasn't completely satisfied with the curler and saw further adjustments to be made.  When he developed his own cosmetic line, he made these modifications.  His lash curler is now the professional's preference.  If your interested in reading more about "How to Curl Lashes (The Right Way)," click the title link!

Prime & Prevent

Kevyn Aucoin came up with, what we believe to be, one of the best skin primer's on the market.  His primer does exactly what every other brand claim (creates a base for foundation to last all day and night) and doubles as an amazing skincare product.  This makes his Primed Skin Developer great for the woman who wears little to the woman who wears it all.

As you will read, these two primers have amazing anti-aging properties.  We do not believe that this product should be substituted as your skin care serum.  For a great serum, be sure to check out Meder's Serum Soin-Apax, and Serum NRJ Soin, two cosmeceutical serums new to the Timothy Pamment Salon.

Mother's Day 2015

Nothing tangible can truly compete with a mother, or mother figure's, love.  At the salon we see first-hand how hectic a mother's day can be, and how hard it is for a mother to find time to get away for two hours for a visit to our salon.  When she does, we strive to give our mother's a memorable experience.  Friendly conversation, a soothing head massage, talented servicing, and a cheerful atmosphere are all key ingredients in developing the Timothy Pamment Salon experience. 

Unfortunately with Mother's Day comes along a certain degree of stress.  What gift can possibly compete with the gift of life?  Fortunately, the staff at the Timothy Pamment Salon are experts in making woman look and feel beautiful, and we are excited to show you what we think to be some amazing gift ideas. We have put together two image galleries: at home luxuries, and in salon indulgences.  Make her day beautiful and surprise her with a Timothy Pamment Salon shopping bag!

From Timothy and Donna Pamment, along with their team, "We wish everyone a fantastic Mother's Day!"
