The stylists at Running With Scissors Salon ignore lessons learned in grade school in favor of knowledge gleaned from beauty school to professionally style coifs, groom nails, and rejuvenate weary complexions. Inside the full-service salon, the skilled team works to transform appearances with hair, nail, and waxing services for the entire family.
Murat Tercan has a world of salon experience?literally. The native Turk started out by helping his family open a salon in Ankara, then he went on to hone his craft at the L'Oreal Academy in Paris and the Wella and Schwarzkopf academies in Germany. He built his resume styling hair for fashion shows for Valentino, Versace, and Armani, later traveling as an international educator for L'Oreal.
Since making yet another home in Colorado, he opened his own space, Enchante, where he and his team perform advanced services such as designer haircuts, color corrections, and keratin treatments. In the spirit of Murat's background in education, stylists are committed to not just giving clients a style, but teaching them to maintain it. There's also an onsite spa where clients can retreat to receive Swedish massages and Dermalogica facials, or to ease their fear of scissors.
Hair styling began calling to Cher Nelson at an early age, when she discovered her aptitude and passion for coiffing while doing her mother's hair. After two decades of snipping manes in others? salons, Cher decided to draw on her experience to become her own boss at Cher Nelson Hair Design. In the salon, decorated in vibrant and lively colors, Cher discusses new cuts at length with her clients before picking up the scissors, making sure she snips just the right amount, and gives relaxing scalp massages that ease the anxiety of parting with the friendly sparrows that frequently nest in overgrown tangles. A rotating selection of tunes pulse from the speaker, while the occasional buzz of the television sets the back drop for easy conversations in the laid-back salon. Meanwhile, Cher she snips clients' tresses, colors them with Pravana Chromasilk products, or relaxes their curls into smooth, straight cascades.
The almost surreally quaint cottage occupied by No Regrets Hair Studio is open by appointment only. That's not because founder and head stylist Sheena Coatman keeps a light workload—quite the opposite. When the salon's not open, she's on the road working as an educator for the American Crew line of men's haircare products and increasing her own education.
Coatman has some help at No Regrets in the form of Cray Simpson, who has a similar background as an educator and a wealth of experience in extensions, wigs, and other forms of mane enhancement. Beyond the salon's aqua, pink, and lavender facade, the walls sport a collection of local art that changes to showcase a different artist each quarter.
Orchidée Salon & Spa’s staff believes that the power of pampering can bring out the inner beauty in anyone. This full-service beauty center tends to hair, skin, and nails with a variety of treatments in addition to relaxing services such as massages and detoxifying wraps. You can sit down for a customized haircut in a classic or contemporary style from four different stylists, or get your digits done up with Edith or Anna. Edith offers a luxurious Death by Chocolate pedicure, which includes chocolate treats, a mimosa, and a hot chocolate foot scrub.
As playfully stated on their web site, His & Her Salon has been "saving mullets and $12 haircuts alike since 2009." This emphasis on turning style catastrophes into stylish makeovers comes from the Paul Mitchell Focus salon's owner, Andrea Andrews. She makes sure each of her stylists stays on top of trends and emergency bangs resuscitation techniques through ongoing education. Ultimately, though, the staff cares most about helping clients showcase their individuality with every cut and style. Paul Mitchell products help.
