Longtime Arbuckle Salon Owner Announces Retirement

pam andreottiAfter nearly 35 years in the salon business; Pamela Andreotti will be officially retiring and locking her doors for the last time at the end of October.

In 1981, Pam opened IMAGES at 307 5th Street in downtown Arbuckle.

To some IMAGES was a place just to get their hair cut, to others it was a sanctuary.

“My shop was somewhat like the salon in ‘Steal Magnolias’,” said Andreotti, “It was a place to relax and a place where people wanted to be.”

“Where else can you get a haircut and a piece of homemade pie? Moreover, where can a chemo patient spend two hours on the couch until she gained enough energy to go home,” said in a letter sent to Pam’s clients announcing her retirement.

It is without doubt; Pam cared for her clients.

“I have always loved making people happy, and people are happy when they look good,” Andreotti commented, “and being able to do just that – is wonderful.”

Over the years, IMAGES grew from your typical hair salon to a full-service gift shop and beauty parlor; however, hair is always Pam’s focus.

“It is going to be challenging starting a new life,” said Andreotti, “it has been very emotional these past couple of weeks – I am going to miss it.”

For Pam working long hours also meant to raise her kids in the salon, and with the watchful eye of her daughter Taylor is following in her footsteps.

“I am very proud of my daughter for taking the challenge and seeking out a successful career in cosmetology,” said Andreotti, “I say, always follow your dreams and the rewards will come.”

After 33 years, Pam can say with confidence “I love my job!”

“Who can say that after 33-years?” said Andreotti, “the love for my job is all I needed to keep me going and knowing I am making a difference.”

As she looks towards retirement, Pam says she will miss her clients – many of whom had been coming to her since day one.

“I have a client who travels from Sacramento to get his hair cut,” said Andreotti,

“He has been coming to me since he was just four years old – he is now 36.”

“My clients have been very loyal over these years and have always been important to me,” said Andreotti, “and it has been a pleasure to have served them.”

Pam has no intentions of slowing down in retirement.

“I never had the freedom of time,” said Andreotti, “I hope to do some traveling with my husband, volunteering and most of all spending time with my grandchildren.”

“Arbuckle will always be my love,” added Andreotti.

Celebrating a long career, Pam’s clients and friends are hosting a special open house on Saturday, October 25th, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at her salon, located at 307 5th Street in Arbuckle.
