About Salon Imperium
Salon Imperium is located in the charming 1906 Colonel House known as The Foley, in Historic Downtown The Dalles, Oregon. The salon offers a unique experience in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Salon Imperium is owned and operated by Melinda Chavez, a licensed cosmetologist for over twenty-two years, & she has provided services in the Columbia River Gorge for twelve years. She currently provides hair & skincare services.
Inspiration from a former employer and close friend has allowed Melinda to develop a passion for creating an experience, rather than just providing a service. She wishes to provide her salon guests with the ultimate self-care experience of comfort, luxury, and relaxation. She believes that feeling good about your appearance instills confidence & self-esteem. The Greek word Imperium—meaning “absolute power”—was introduced to her by a friend, giving the name Salon Imperium. Feel Powerful, feel Confident, & Embrace yourself, at Salon Imperium.
