Five-star Henna

“Seaside is where it’s all happening,” said Sandy Palmer, artist in chief and proprietor of Five Star Henna, from her new location in Seaside. Palmer, a northern Californian, was a window painter who fell hard for henna after watching a YouTube video. During a vacation to Seaside eight years ago, she determined to move here and open a henna studio.

“We do temporary tattoos, airbrush, stencil; we’ll feather and wrap your hair,” Palmer said. “We do face-painting for little kids, and we’re looking to hire a piercer.”

Sarah, her daughter, also works in the shop and helped design the cool décor. Five Star Henna is an enchanting place to hang out; while you’re waiting your turn under the magical henna tent, check out the cool merch — groovy incense, 3D tapestry, and energy clearing sage sticks.

Henna, for those not in the know, is a natural, organic dye made from the powdered leaves of a tropical shrub. For hundreds of years it’s been used for body decoration; Cleopatra wore it. Eastern Indians elevated henna painting to a venerated art form; henna is incorporated into their lavish wedding festivals as well as religious ceremonies.

The plant the dye is derived from grows naturally in Africa, northern Australia, and southern Asia. Palmer gets her henna directly from a lady in India. Once henna is applied, results, which fade gradually, can last up to four weeks. While young females on vacation make up the lion’s share of Palmer’s business, she also gets people who are considering a tattoo who want to test drive a henna version first for placement.

Palmer says it’s not unusual for a group to come in, say a beach volleyball team, all wanting the same design. Call it a tribal thing. That’s where the party atmosphere kicks in.

“It can get really busy in here on a weekend afternoon,” Palmer said. “This is a fun place to be.”
Patrons select a design from a wide array of suggestions provided by Palmer. I showed her a picture on my phone and she duplicated it. The price of henna application depends on the intricacy and detail of the design. Palmer commented on how there are myriad recreational opportunities in Seaside for those 21 and up. Henna is something everyone can enjoy, age regardless.

For years, I’ve fantasized about getting a tattoo, but so far haven’t been brave — or committed — enough. I asked Palmer draw the classic reiki symbol, cho ku rey, on the back of my hand. It’s lasted two weeks so far. I couldn’t be happier. I’m definitely going back to do it again.

Five Star Henna is located at 600 Broadway in Seaside, right next to the Broadway Bridge, on the north west corner of the Historic Gilbert District neighborhood.

“There is something charming in little seaside towns when it is not high tourist season. Love this little sleepy, more relaxed and laid back vibe, a chance to browse through small shops and cafes without crowds, have a little talk with owners.”
Precious times indeed. 💕

 

And, too, an article published by Seaside Visitors Bureau

 

 

March 1, 2019 | by Seaside Visitors Bureau

Seaside, Oregon, is known for its downtown murals and active arts scene.

As one of the best known beach destinations in the Pacific Northwest, Seaside has a reputation for stunning sunsets, inviting sand, and proximity to incredible hiking trails that wander along both the sandy shores and rugged bluffs. In addition to its scenic beauty, though, Seaside is also full of rich history and embraces artists from all walks of life. From art walks to museums to festivals, this Oregon Coast gem has an ocean’s worth of art and culture to explore during your next visit.

 

Visiting Seaside when there is not an Art Walk? Don’t fret. Seaside’s art community is well represented all year long. Must-stop art galleries include the Oregon Gallery, the SunRose Gallery, the Fairweather House and Gallery, and the numerous murals spread all throughout town. The Seaside murals are an attraction in themselves and capture the spirit and culture of this idyllic coastal town. Colorful, iconic, and full of the coastal spirit you’d expect to see, the murals, which are perfect for selfies in the salty air, adorn buildings all around town.

The words, “Brazilian Blow Out” and “Moroccan Oil” may not have a lot of meaning to you, that is unless you’ve been exposed to the higher realms of hair care a person might take for granted at a sophisticated city hair salon. But now you can experience these products, and other luxurious hair treatments at a new salon in Seaside — and at a fraction of city costs.

“Customer satisfaction is guaranteed,” said Kegan French, who along with his partner, Will Witt, just opened Salon on Broadway, located at 810 Broadway in Seaside. “If you don’t like it, we’ll switch it out for you at no cost. We stand by our work and our products 100 percent.”

 

 

Kegan French and Will Witt.

French was born in Germany. He grew up in Utah on an Air Force base. He comes from a family doctors and other medical professionals and was expected to follow that path. Instead, while still a college student, he became a stagehand and wardrobe technician in Salt Lake City.

“I worked with Rascal Flatts, Gwen Stefani, Cirque de Soleil,” French said. “I worked with Faith Hill and Tim McGrath. I worked with Ozzy Osborne. I worked with Korn. My life was all glitz and glamour and gradually I began to realize I wanted to make everyone feel like a star.”

It wasn’t long before he ditched the career path his family envisioned for him to enroll in Paul Mitchell, The School, in Salt Lake City. He seriously began to study hair care, graduating as a cosmetologist in 2011.

Eight years ago, French followed his mother, Mary French-Peterson, to the Oregon Coast. For a time he ran the hair salon at Necanicum Village. He had a salon in Astoria. Then he found out about space available in the newly renovated Westport Winery building and a bell went off.

“I knew right away this was where I wanted to be,” French said.

Salon on Broadway focuses on specialized, premium services.

“Conditioning, hair color, precision hair cuts, broken hair bonding and cuticle services are the foundation of industry leading hair care,” French said. “Our advanced skin care uses state-of-the-art micro current, microdermabrasion, photon therapy, ultrasonic cavitation, radio and high frequency rejuvenation, and chemical peels,” he said. “Our truly exceptional nail care includes detailed manicures, pedicures, and shellac nails. If you don’t know what treatment you need, we’re here to guide you.”

Salon on Broadway is a unique space. While it has a modern, industrial feel, at the same time it feels more like a spa than a hair salon. There is a relaxing private room for the specialized facials. Expect world-class service and cutting edge treatment. And then there’s the energy work. French is a resource for his clients in chakra care, quantum healing and hypnotherapy.

 

“I take the healing and beautifying arts very seriously,” he said. “Hair color correction is one of my specialties. Come in and visit us at Salon on Broadway. I’m dedicated and committed to the happiness, health, and well being of my clients. Your satisfaction is 100 percent guaranteed.”

Salon on Broadway is located at 810 Broadway, Suite 203. The salon is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. – article by Eve Marx/ Seaside Signal

 

Salon on Broadway is located in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside in the Wheatley/ Desler Block.

 

 

Seaside Kites

Family fun.

Open daily 11-6.

 

The Roberts family, owners of Westport Winery in Seaside, operates Seaside Kites at 810 Broadway located in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside.

Winery co-owner Kim Roberts, who partners with her husband Blain, daughter Carrie and son Dana, said she hopes kids can enjoy the shop while parents spend time in the nearby tasting room.

The kite shop’s tag line is “the sky’s the limit,” reflective of their purchase of the building in January. Since then the family has made significant investments in the property, including deferred maintenance, painting and repairing.

 

The store was aided by Doll Camp, who has owned Cachalot Kites in Westport, Washington for more than 40 years. She focused merchandise on affordable, colorful, and easy-to-fly kites for all ages.

 

Seaside Kites is located in the Wheatley/ Desler Building Block of the Gilbert District.
