A new beauty salon opened Saturday at 1651 Charleston Park Road after owner Margery Behrens-Hanson closed Accents Hair Salon.
Behrens-Hanson has been doing everything hair for 37 years and has owned shops here for 13 of the 18 years she’s lived in Pahrump. People will remember her from Serendipity her first shop on Highway 372, which was open for nine years.
After taking a hiatus, she opened American Beauty on Pahrump Valley Boulevard at Manse Road. The location was open for three years. In January, Behrens-Hanson purchased Accents Hair Salon on Loop Road and is happy to have the doors open at Sirens. “The fourth time is the charm,” she laughed.
“One thing I’ve always had,” she said, “is customer loyalty. They find me wherever I am.” Behrens-Hanson has kept up with trends and techniques through trade shows and classes and has a reputation for great styles and coloring techniques. She said, “I like the bold colors.”
She also does permanent make-up and said she is the only technician here to handle individual eyelash extensions. In addition, the salon offers high-tech, fashion coloring, cuts, styling, and hair extensions.
Having been in the beauty business for so long, Behrens-Hanson has made a lot of contacts. “I’ve pulled together the best, most professional staff. They do beautiful work. It’s my shop and they know the customer doesn’t leave until it’s perfect.
She said she has a manicurist, two stylists and in October will offer massage by appointment. “I have one station open,” Behrens-Hanson said.
She will offer pedicures when her equipment arrives. “We’re going to offer the Beverly Hills pedicure. The system of doing pedicures has changed. The old chair-type are being replaced with sanitary, removable liners. Too many customers of the beauty industry were getting infections, so the process has become more sterile.
The rates are $15 for shampoo, cut and style. Behrens-Hanson said seniors get a discount. The service is $12 for 55 and over. “Seniors should get a break,” she said. “I seriously feel they have paid their dues.
Any senior coming in to have their hair set once per week, will get the haircut included in that service.
Sirens will have a grand opening from noon to 3 p.m., Sept. 22. There will be free hot dogs on the grill, chips and sodas.
“I want to welcome all my customers into the new shop. Word-of-mouth has always been my best advertising.
Sirens hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Range Rider Grill
A local dining/bar establishment has turned the kitchen and the menu over to a new owner.
Sugar’s Too, at 3971 Kellogg Road, turned the former Giardelli’s Italian Restarant over to a new owner in August. The restaurant is now the Range Rider Grill.
New owners Brenda Bala and Randy Burns moved here 10 years ago from Las Vegas. Bala said, “We always wanted a restaurant and when we learned this one could be leased, we were excited. I think we can offer somethng to Pahrump.”
The new menu features submarine and regular sandwiches, hamburgers, wings, French fries and Bala’s “homemade onion rings.” She said her food has a “Boston influence.”
“My best seller has been the Boston cheesesteak.”
Range Rider will also have specials for football season. Bala said a burger and fries is $3.50 and a hot dog and fries is $2.50. Specials will change weekly.
The bar business is still owned by Sarah Chapman.
