Like two peas in a pod, Shear Bliss Studios owners Annalise and Whitney stand side by side as they twirl and curl strands into traditional and trendy hair ‘dos. As a certified colorist and TIGI-trained stylist, Annalise transforms dull locks with color, from warm chestnut brown to neon hot pink, and Whitney brings her vast knowledge of dry cutting techniques and precision highlights to the salon chair. To ensure clients rejoice in their new styles, both ladies take the time to listen to salon-goers before helping them reach their beauty goals within the teal-, pink-, and purple-hued walls of the spacious beauty haven.
The talented stylists at Salon Prospect have been trained all across the United States, from San Francisco to Manhattan. But they meet in the middle in Longmont to offer a variety of salon services for women, men, and kids. They specialize in tints and highlights, but are also experts at correcting color fiascos, such as the result of at-home dye jobs or swimming laps in a pool of food coloring.
Combining keen aesthetic intuition with professional-grade products and equipment, the stylists at Front Street Hair Studio use an arsenal of techniques to create changing, energetic new looks for their clients. They begin each appointment with a thorough consultation, determining how anything from a quick trim to a full head of highlights will accentuate a client's best features, even if their best features are solving integral and differential equations. From there, the stylists tend to tresses using Aquage shampoos and styling products—made using nutrient-rich blends of organic seaweeds and algae—as well as vibrant coloring formulas by Wella.
Daphne Hutton’s enthusiasm is obvious––even before the first snip. Each session begins with a private facial analysis, wherein she gets to know the client, discusses needs, and helps choose a flattering style. Then the transformation happens. Two decades of experience guide her as she sculpts sleek layers and decorates with color highlights. Guests can also solicit Daphne for a facial wax or retreat to a private room for bodywork session with the salon’s certified massage therapist, Tara Stoner.
