The team at Expressions Salon and Gifts

By Mary Owen

Expressions Salon and Gifts is growing by a barber, a second nail technician that also micro-blades eyebrows, and new space for more massage therapy options.

“There was an addition to the back for a larger massage room that allows for more spa-like massage offerings,” said Pam Melby, a masseuse at the salon, located at 811 Main St., Lyons. “I offer hot stone, wraps, scrubs, cupping, Bowen therapy, Myofascial Release therapy, as well as Swedish, deep tissue and pregnancy massage.”

Melby moved to Lyons about three years ago and has been doing massage for more than 30 years.

“I first learned massage as a teenager in martial arts classes,” she said. “I loved massage, and knew I’d always want to be a massage therapist.”

Her hope, she said, is that “people take away health and healing from me.”

“Most of my feedback has been very positive,” she said. “I have heard from many clients that I gave the best massage that they ever had.”

Lexi Silbernagel wanted to become a nail technician since leaving high school, but decided on other work for a stint.

“About a year later, here I am,” she said. “I absolutely love my clients and my coworkers’ clients!”

Silbernagel gives pedicures and manicures, and specializes in micro-blading, a technique that produces “beautiful brows” to those who want a semi-permanent natural solution.

“Everyone is so friendly and patient with me being newer to the business,” Silbernagel said.

Specializing in men’s haircuts is Joanie Juba, an Oregon native, born and raised in Portland and now living in West Salem.

“I decided to go to beauty school about seven years ago,” she said. “It’s something I have always wanted to do!”

Juba enjoys meeting the “friendly and welcoming” clients at Expressions. Her services include fades, business cuts, flattops, military cuts and beards.

“Also every haircut comes with a straight razor neck shave,” Juba added.Her goal: great service and a good haircut!

“I’ve been told by clients that they appreciate my attention to detail,” Juba said. “I am very excited to be here, and I’m looking forward to meeting the people in Lyons and helping them to look their best.”

The country store setting offers an array of hair and skin products, including Joico, Loma, Kenra, Obliphica, and Woody’s products for men.

“There are candles, purses, assortment of cards, earrings and jewelry and so much more,” Melby said. “Stop by and say hi.”

Expressions started in 1978 by Jolene Woodward as Jolene’s Hair Fashions. Woodward turned her business over to her daughter, Cheryle Silbernagel in 2008. When Silbernagel purchased the business, she changed the name to Expressions Salon and Gifts.
