A Bumble and bumble network salon, Littleton Hair Company is home to a collection of talented stylists, spanning wide ranges of experience and expertise. Each staff member is personally trained by David, the salon's master stylist and network educator, who has 31 years of experience. Their talents and specialties cover a wide range of tress-taming turf. With experiences in other industries such as fashion and entertainment, they might specialize in tending to curly hair, long layers, or men's haircuts and gray blending. But above all, each stylist is well equipped to offer services such as haircuts and color treatments, backed up by an ever-expanding product line.
Angie Cummings never thought she'd own a salon. When her husband surprised her by buying one, she worried about expanding her clientele beyond the loyal fans of her at-home nail business. "So I kind of just stumbled into [this business], honestly. But it has been the biggest blessing," she says. "There's never a day, ever, that I wake up and think, 'I don't want to work.'"
The turnaround came when Cummings realized she could "[sit] there talking to people" as she boosted their confidence beautifying their nails. The salon is fresh from recent redecorating, which included painting the walls a soothing neutral color and filling tall vases with even taller reeds. Within the new salon, massaging pedicure chairs cushion clients during luxurious spa services, and oval portrait mirrors capture the flash of stylists' scissors and twinkling eyes as they customize fashionable cuts.
As an aesthetician, Brandy Rich spends nearly every day up close and personal with her clients’ faces. She has seen it all—from troublesome acne to irritated and dry skin—and she works her magic to address every problem. The anti-aging facial’s essential oils help diminish fine lines, and pineapple extract exfoliates faces more gently than scrubbing with an actual pineapple. When problematic skin quiets down, Brandy’s job as a makeup artist kicks in. She enhances brides’ natural beauty with Temptu Pro airbrush makeup, teaches everyday folk how to properly apply eyeliner, and applies eye-catching lash extensions for added drama when blinking.

Light streams in through Southwest Salon's wall-to-wall windows, flooding the intimate studio and illuminating the expert nail technicians as they trim cuticles, apply an exfoliating sugar scrub, gently buff nail beds, and replace and repair acrylic nails. Southwestern textiles and turquoise walls surround the techs and the salon's visitors, whose feet soak in steamy tubs during pedicures. Each nail-centric service can conclude with a special OPI, Shellac, or Gelish polish, which protects nails and renders them shiny, chip-free, and impervious to criticism for up to two weeks.
