Hair raising fun found at Lavonne's Salon

STAFF PHOTOS: VERN UYETAKE - Lavonne Holland, owner of Salon Lavonne, has a tradition of decorating her salon for Halloween. It takes her all day to adorn the shop to be spooky. The public is invited to visit the salon through Nov. 5 to view the displays.

Halloween is a holiday that is easy for businesses to overlook, but not Salon Lavonne in Westlake Village. For the past 21 years owner Lavonne Holland has pulled out all the stops in decorating for Halloween.

“It takes a full day to put up the displays,” she says. “We have to be able to work in our space, so the decorations have to be placed just so.”

Luckily the salon has ample space above cabinets for displaying the spooky specimens.

A walk through the salon reveals a spooky family scene, plenty of pirates, black cats, spiders and more haunting sights. The public is invited to view the Halloween display, and Holland says this is the last year she will decorate for Halloween.

“It’s a lot of work,” she said. “I’m getting too old to be climbing up ladders to create the arrangements.”

The display will be up through Saturday, Nov. 5. Then she’ll pack it away and get ready to decorate for Christmas.

“I have eight trees and about four miles of garland upstairs,” she said.

That should be another spectacular display to see.

Salon Lavonne is located at 14547 Westlake Drive, suite B. It is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It offers facials, waxing services and a full line of hair care services for men and women. Learn more by calling 503-968-7141.

The staff at Salon Lavonne gets in the Halloween spirit. The work stations have haunting decor with larger vignettes arranged in spaces in the salon.
