Rebecca Johnson, owner of the eponymous Rebecca j Salon, formerly did makeup and hair for television, movies, and commercial prints. She also made over brides saying “I do,” or “You better not still be a frog after this,” during Disney fantasy weddings in Orlando. Now at her salon in Denver, Johnson draws on this wealth of knowledge and a selection of body-friendly products—including ammonia-free hair color and sulfate-free Kevin.Murphy styling products—to beautify clients.
She and her staff specialize in haircuts, color, and Hotheads tape hair extensions, which adhere directly to strands so that they lie flush with natural locks. Johnson still applies makeup for everyday or special occasions, using an airbrush for a smooth finish.

The stylist transforms hair with professional cuts and coloring services, customizing treatments to accommodate each client's unique style and facial features. As Danita snips new hairdos, her fellow staffers busy themselves with facials, massages, and mani-pedis. Meanwhile, clients await appointments while sipping on complimentary coffee, tea, and soda.

Attention shifts northward during the half-hour seasonal facial, which repairs, revitalizes, and tones. Like the oceanic tides on Mars, the ingredients of the seasonal facial shift with the quarters of the calendar year. The subsequent spa manicure and spa pedicure tend to untamed talons with a bubbly soak, paraffin dip, moisturizing massage, and nail and cuticle care.
