If you want a friendly face and a haircut or styling backed up by 24 years of experience, give K’s Creations a try.

Owner Kristen Eshom just opened her own business at 609 W. Washington St., tucked in the southeast corner inside Hair by Chris Glas, across from the Sequim Police Department.

“The first time I walked into a salon and saw a perm going on, I knew I wanted to do hair, so I went to The Hair School in Port Angeles and have had various continuing education classes,” Eshom said.

“I’m glad to be working in a salon after years of not doing that,” Eshom said. “I was at Hairmasters at JC Penney and I decided I wanted my own clientele. I’ve worked for other people all my life and now I can set my own hours. It’s freedom — my kids are grown and gone and I can do what I want.”

The 44-year-old Port Angeles native said she’s just restarted building up her client base and looks forward to greeting former customers and new ones. She also makes custom jewelry such as anklets, bracelets and earrings plus wind chimes.

Eshom encourages the public to give her a try.

“I have years of experience and I’m good at what I do. I work well with the public and I’m a people person,” Eshom said. “I specialize in haircuts and coloring and children are welcome here. I also do haircuts for men and my prices are very reasonable.”

She also does perms and styling and welcomes walk-ins. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and Saturdays by appointment only. Credit cards are not accepted.

“I like the interaction with people and what goes on in the salon and to make people look and feel good about themselves.”
