Image Excellence Salon and Paul Christian Cosmetics, have helped thousands of clients since 1986. How do they do it? With a unique and complete signature approach to defining beauty.

Paul Christian and Eric Papke, observe your facial features, bone structure, hair color, eye color and skin tone. Then, provide you with a personalized haircut, individual hair color, makeup application, and/or wardrobe suggestions.

Paul Christian, a lead in the totality of image consulting, and Eric Papke in the art of hair cutting and hair coloring have consulted with numerous organizations and businesses including: “Ultimate Makeover”, Bank of America, Nordstrom, IBM, Pacific Bell, Stanford University, the University of California, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Xerox, TWA, Miss World Pageant, just to name a few.

We design your makeup colors by taking into account a color’s hue, value and intensity and determine how it relates to your skin tone and bone structure. If the result is pleasing to the eye, we have achieved color harmony. This harmony engages the viewer and creates a balance in the visual experience. The wrong color makeup is visually displeasing, and your skin appears grey, yellow, sallow or even green.

Our “Complete Makeup Collections” are broken down into four basic categories, or harmonies: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. While everyone falls into one of these harmonies, each of you will have a unique variation of the harmony and a spectrum of colors that suit you best. Let us help you discover your signature style!
