When it came time to decorate her salon, master colorist Ginny Thompson decided on a rockabilly theme: she painted sections of the wall to resemble exposed bricks and dotted other areas with records. This same creativity can be seen in Thompson’s cut and color treatments, in which she draws on 15 years of experience and a cache of products from Pravana—a haircare line that steers clear of hazardous ingredients and animal testing.
Kate Allen considers herself a bit of a magician—she transforms drab hairstyles into chic coiffures with a flick of a blow dryer and backcombing. But these skills didn’t magically appear overnight. They’re the result of five years of field experience, in which she wore the hats of stylist, independent consultant, and manager. Today, she uses her accumulated knowledge to not only style hair, but also to bestow clients with a wealth of insider secrets.
For more than two decades, Liz Ehrichs has spent her days revamping hair with shades that not only suit her clients’ taste and draw attention from onlookers but also look natural. Stationed amid Salon Denver’s rustic brick walls and golden hardwood floors, she paints tresses with Framesi products to create style-accentuating highlights or all-over chestnut, blond, or auburn hues. Liz also focuses on color correction, fixing strands that were dyed by less adept salons or the neighborhood’s paintball league.
