Denyce Khoury

Aqua Salon

1520 E. Highway 372,

Suite B


Background: “I have been cutting hair for 10 years but I was made an even better stylist when I took classes from Jack Champion. I have lived in Pahrump for 20 years. My goal is to make women feel beautiful about themselves. I specialize in color and highlights. At our salon, we use Olaplex, which takes hair to blonde without frying your hair.”

Personal: “I work a lot and get really no down time so when I come here to work, I relax. I feel like an artist when I come here and I really enjoy making women more beautiful.”

First job: “My first job was with Eldridge Homes Inc. and doing their bookkeeping in Washington.”

Business Climate: “I know there are 23 salons in this towns. I want high standards in my salon. I want women to escape Pahrump when they come here. When they come they know they will be treated right and they can get full hair care, manicures, pedicures and spray tan. This place used to be (called) A Hairitage Salon, but we gutted it and have an all new feel to this place.”

IN SEASON: The beat on beets

I’ve noticed that one of the most requested items at the Farmers Market is beets. It mystifies me because I am not a fan of the flavor. Beets are fun to grow though, and very versatile. They are also easy to grow and have a quick turn-around from seed to harvest.

IN SEASON: Mesquite, one of the desert’s most plentiful crops

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of attending the annual Mesquite pancake breakfast hosted by Great Basin Permaculture (now disbanded) in Las Vegas.

IN SEASON: Broccoli, the gem of a cool season vegetable garden

It may be hard to imagine as we head into Labor Day weekend with excessive heat warnings, but fall, with its cooler temperatures, is just around the corner. Fall brings not only cooler temperatures but a new growing season, and maybe even the easiest time to grow a garden in our year-round growing climate.
