Mountain salon changes hands posted on 12/01/2018

Jessica Thomason, who recently acquired the New Moon Salon (formerly Salon Christa), laughed when asked about the new name.

“What more could you want for your hair than new and positive changes,” she said.

Thomason noted the salon, located at 67211 East Hwy. 26 in Welches, marks a new endeavor as her first ownership role after working as a stylist for 21 years. The “new moon” represents all forms of new and positive change, and serves as the inspiration for the new moniker.

“I’m so excited. It’s been a whirlwind,” Thomason said about purchasing the salon.

Thomason has lived in the Timberline Rim community for five years, where she is a member of the Homeowner’s Association Board. Thomason has clients in the community and plans to continue providing service for existing clients of Salon Christa.

“Having Christa’s blessing is wonderful,” said Thomason about the transition of her assuming ownership in November. “We have mutual respect for each other. She didn’t want to leave her business to just anybody.”

Thomason hopes to bring new techniques to the Mountain she learned during her years styling hair at Hickox Studio and Appel Nouveau Salon in Portland. She plans to increase the salon’s availability with four additional employees, while adding a second chair in the new year.

The salon will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Walk-ins are encouraged, and Thomason urges people to schedule an appointment or drop by if they need to get “dolled up” in December for the holidays.

The New Moon Salon can be contacted at 503-740-6891.
