When designing the new Clackamas Town Center campus of Phagans School of Beauty, the LSI Architects included all of the must haves – classrooms, hair stations, nail stations, etc.
But school administrators new they wanted something special in this new space that would epitomize the way they felt about their students. So the designers included a hidden gem – a stage to highlight the rising stars of cosmetology who graduate from Phagans.
On a regular day in the salon, no one would be able to tell that there among the scissors and mirrors is a full-on stage. But when it is time for select training or special events, the walls push back to reveal an elevated platform, the first stage of its kind at a Phagans school.
Our hope is to use the stage as a training platform for students and as a runway for special events like beauty and hair shows. Since the salon stations occupy the space in front of the stage, we put them on wheels so they could be easily moved to make more room for shows. Hosting events at the new location is our way of giving back to the community and helping our students share their special artistic talents.
Join us next month for our Grand Opening celebration and the chance to take the stage in our new location.
