Kapolei salon ‘makes the cut’ in styling services

Yong Dufour

By Kyle Galdeira

For four years, the friendly, knowledgeable team at Kapolei Mehana Salon has assisted kamaaina and visitors with an array of services and treatments including: full hair salon service; coloring and cuts, perms and relaxer; and even facial waxing.

Owner Yong Dufour explained that the hard-working staff at Kapolei Mehana Salon aims to provide personalized, high-quality service in a family-friendly atmosphere — basically, a home away from home in which guests may relax and unwind while being rejuvenated. Customers routinely comment about the salon’s availability of appointments and the establishment’s welcoming atmosphere that allows customers to de-stress while escaping the hustle and bustle of one’s daily routine.

Kapolei Mehana Salon presents a comfortable environment for customers and staff offering haircuts, shampoos, styling, and more, as performed by hair stylists Jenell Villanueva .

“Tucked away in one of the newest communities of flex-homes in Kapolei, guests that walk into our salon immediately feel at home,” Dufour said of the convenient location, which is situated within the growing Mehana residential and business area. “We strive to make each customer and stylist a valued part of our ohana within the community.”

Kapolei Mehana Salon also offers a comfortable, inviting atmosphere for its employees to operate in, while helping loyal returning and new clients. Employees can take advantage of flexible scheduling, and growth is encouraged and fostered as stylists can work via a commission-based structure, or through available chair rentals.

“Time spent with family and an emphasis on work-life balance are strongly encouraged,” Dufour explained. “Our regular business hours are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, and any additional hours worked are scheduled at the discretion of each individual stylist, which allows for greater flexibility for both employees and customers.”
