Kate West Chester Editor When asked about the se- cret to her success, Char Or- machea, owner and stylist of Char's Beauty Salon, said, "I'm not very good at tooting my own horn." Yet she quietly admits to go- ing the distance for her clients. "I run and pick people up and deliver them back home-- whatever helps the clients," she said. No doubt, the other part of her success is the fact she is not only a stylist but also a business owner and the owner of a building that houses mul- tiple businesses. A 1972 graduate of the Yuba City College of Beauty, Orma- chea first rented space and worked at Heidi's Harem, a sa- lon named after the daughter of building owners Fred and Kathy Schlueter. Three years later, at the age of 22 years, she bought her first shop, next to the old Western Auto store. Laughing, Orma- chea said her monthly pay- ment in 1975 was $35. Moving forward, she said she worked in other locations around town until 1990, when she bought her current salon and building at 181 Main St. "The reason I've done so well with my business is be- cause of my customers-- they are the reason I am here. They are loyal and they are my friends. "I was born and raised here; I've done some of the same peo- ple's hair for 37 years. Ina Gray and Florence Price were my fin'st steady clients when I got out of school and I'm still doing their hair," Ormachea said. Salon stylist Nora Blake- man not only agreed, but also said the loyalty was, in Char's case, a two-way street. "She is loyal to each and every one of her clients and that is only part of what makes her successful. She is also very consistent in the way she does hair and she al- ways comes to work despite a long winter drive from Stan- dish or whether she is well or Stylist Chr-Ormachea, owner of Char's Beauty Salon, has been in the beauty business since 1972. Just finishing a style for Iongtime client Kathryn Larsen, she also had 20-year client Marge Cagle on her books as well as 37-year client Dixie John- son. Photo by M.
