Well-coiffed residents a credit to in-house beauty salon

The beauty salon at Salina Presbyterian Manor is one of the many amenities that residents enjoy.

In fact, it was the deciding factor for one member of the community.

Kate James, pictured left, is the newest stylist at the Presbyterian Manor beauty salon. She joins Sherry Valentine, on right.

“A resident once told me when she was visiting the Manor, she noticed all the ladies’ hair was perfectly styled,” said Cathy Boos, administrative assistant. “That made her decision to move here final.”

Regular customers will notice a new face around the salon, as hair stylist Kate James joined the staff earlier this year. The Clay Center native has 41 years of experience in the hair industry, and she has owned three beauty shops during her career.

Kate joins Sherry Valentine, a 27-year veteran of the Presbyterian Manor salon.

Sherry has lots of stories to tell from her years behind the chair. Once while giving a perm, the sink clogged. Her client misheard Sherry when she explained that she couldn’t rinse out the perm because the sink was clogged. “Oh honey,” the resident replied, “Your brain’s not clogged!”

The salon is open Tuesday through Saturday. If a resident would like to make an appointment, please call 785-825-1366, ext. 1160.
