EMPRESS Beauty Salon & Barber, which will hold a grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 25, offers more than just haircuts.

Located on Beach Road, Garapan between National Office Supply and Mariana Lounge, the beauty salon, which had a soft opening on Sept. 4, offers various services at affordable prices, according to its owner, Tiffany Usenuku Yokoyama Lizama.

These services include haircut, hairstyling, coloring, highlighting, men's barber service, hair treatment, manicure, pedicure and makeup for special occasions and events.

Empress Beauty Salon, in addition, is clean and has a relaxing ambience. Customers can enjoy the scenic view of the Saipan lagoon while being pampered by highly skilled and seasoned hairstylists and beauticians, Yana Osian and Rhaine Tumada.

The beauty salon hairstylists were behind the elegant and winning looks of Miss Earth NMI-Miss Fire 2020 Kaitlin Borja, Miss Fire 2021 Stephanie Borja and Miss Water 2020 Zoe Stephanson.

Lizama said customers are satisfied with the beauty salon’s services — and are pleasantly surprised at the prices.

A social worker who deals with mental health issues, Lizama said her beauty salon is not just a business establishment but “more of a service to the community.”

Through quality service, cleanliness and affordability, Empress Beauty Salon  hopes to change people’s mind about the beauty care industry. 

Lizama said many individuals either feel overcharged by beauty salons or are dissatisfied with the service.

At Empress Beauty Salon, Lizama and her stylists will ensure that "customers are pampered and when they walk out, they’ll feel like an empress.”

For its grand opening on Saturday, Empress Beauty Salon will give away skin care products, signature keychains and stickers to its customers.

Lizama said among the beauty salon’s special guests are some of the island’s women leaders.

“I also want to highlight that we promote female empowerment by encouraging women to reach their highest potential,” she added.

She herself received an AA degree in social work from Northern Marianas College, and is a staff member of Kagman Isla Community Health’s behavioral health services. She is currently working on her bachelor’s degree in social work through the University of Alaska Fairbanks while running her own business and being a mom to three girls.

“Anything is possible and we are here as an additional support system to our clients,” she added.
