About Us

Penthouse Salon

The Penthouse Salon, an Aveda Concept salon, was founded in 1979 at 313 Central Avenue where customers had to climb 29 steps up to the salon, hense, the name Penthouse. In 1996 the business moved to it's current location, few blocks from the heart of downtown.

The salon is a well designed space to give the sense of privacy, yet open concept to enjoy the entire salon experience. Each designers work area has a different look. Mirrors, product selection and display all play to create an interesting environ. In the spa area there is private room for body waxing, facials, and an area for manicures and pedicures. The entire spa space painted by artist JoAnn Flesch is an oasis for your soul. We are sure you will agree when visiting the spa.

Over the years as styles and fashions have changed, the staff at the Penthouse has continued their educational pursuit to keep abreast of the trends. Educational opportunities are for us very important. Whether advanced training at Vidal Sassoons Academies, Aveda's own World Congress or Academies in New York, Denver or Minneapolis. And International Shows in New York, LA and Las Vegas and even some international training in London. Many in-salon clinics and classes too numerous to mention.

Being part of a larger community in Great Falls we continue to be proud of our accomplishments to make Great Falls a better place to live. Many non-profits have benefited from our fund raising efforts over the the years, whether it be the Rivers Edge Trails, Children's Receiving Home, Paris Gibson Square, CM Russell Museum, Animal Foundation or one of many others. We have sponsored, sold raffle tickets, held cut-a-thons, sold candle all to help our community be a better place. Our clients causes are our causes as well.

The Penthouse Salon has seen a lot of fashions come and go in the last 28 years. It’s essential for stylists to keep au courant of the latest trends.

“Our business is built on happy customers”

They keep up with the trends and techniques by attending a couple of industry events each year, such as the Aveda MasterJam in Minneapolis. They also bring speakers to the salon for presentations such as the recent talk, “Breaking the Rules: Hair Color 101.”

Many of the Penthouse’s employees have been with the company for more than a decade. In an industry where many stylists are contractors renting a space, Penthouse has always had regular employees. Being a part of the community has always been important to the team. Among other things, the Penthouse owners and employees have sponsored scholarships, the Boys and Girls Clubs, Project Graduation, the Great Falls Symphony and Junior League of Great Falls.

In July of 2015 Leslie Vassar, a 19-year employee purchased the Penthouse salon From Don and Marty with her husband Kenny, will manage the business end. Leslie and Kenny want to keep the tradition of what the Penthouse Salon was built on. Don Henderson said it best "you can't quit".
