There are some new but familiar faces at the longtime Escapade Salon in Hollywood. Six stylists now work out of the neighborhood shop at 4219 N.E. Hancock St., around the corner from Laughing Planet and across the parking lot from Reo’s Ribs in Harold Kelly Square.
Joining Jody Longo, Denise Rademacher and Toni Russell are Jan Tolman, Kim Ly and Tommy Hartman.
Last May, Tolman moved from around the corner at 42nd Street Station, where she spent 27 years of her 46 in the neighborhood as owner of “Jan And …” salon. That space is now home to Melat Asfaw and Roberto Villalobos’ MB42 Salon and Barber.
Tolman, who lives in Parkrose, is a Hollywood Booster and a Royal Rosarian. She is known for her work promoting the Junior Rose Parade and for her efforts maintaining the street planters and landscaping along Sandy Boulevard. The Escapade chair is now Tolman’s fourth home in the neighborhood.
“I’ve had so many great customers over the years,” said Tolman. “They’re like family to me.” To make an appointment with Tolman, call 503-201-7341
Ly moved to Escapade in October and she, too, has a long history in the neighborhood, with 29 years as owner of Kim’s Hair Design, just down the street at 4057 N.E. Sandy Boulevard.
“This profession has allowed me to get to know my clients and fully understand their needs to help them create the look they want,” said Ly. “I work with men, women and children and look forward to continuing to serve this wonderful community. I am grateful for all the wonderful friendships and experiences.” To make an appointment with Ly, call 503-287-2839.
The newest member of the Escapade crew is Tommy Hartman, a stylist, colorist and barber who opened his Escapade chair in February. Hartman has worked in the Portland area for five years, after moving from his hometown in San Antonio.
“I came for the culture, climate and natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest,” said Hartman, who graduated from the Aveda Institute of Portland as a licensed cosmetologist in 2013. He specializes in full service precision haircuts for men, women and children.
A member of the Portland Gay Men’s Chorus, Hartman enjoys hiking and running outdoors and loves beer and wine tasting. He is currently taking appointments from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Fridays, and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
