Over the last 12 years, Judit Hillman has mastered hairstyling techniques at chic resorts such as the Ritz Carlton and Montage Laguna Beach. Now, she shares her skills at her own studio in Highlands Ranch. She shapes hair with precise haircuts and infuses locks with stylish color treatments using a botanically derived coloring product with an essential-oil-cream base that preserves the hair's health. Then, she styles tresses using vegan haircare products by brands such as Alfaparf Milano color, Kevin Murphy, and ColorProof, all of which are free of sulfates, parabens, carcinogens, and a host of other undesirable elements.
Monica Zakry received her coloring certification from Pravana Natureceuticals, as well as her hair extensions certificate from So.Cap. In addition, she offers haircuts for men and women and conditioning services, all inside of Dolce Vita Salon and Spa, a welcoming space where clients are served a beverage and can tap into the free WiFi before their appointment.
Master nail technician, Liana Labriola, transforms digital extremities into masterpieces of color. Under her expert care, nails glow with fresh coats of polish after having their jagged edges filed, their cuticles pushed back, and their surrounding skin turned into delicious flan with a sugar scrub.
Andrea Richards is a cosmetologist and master stylist with more than 15 years of experience in her field. She welcomes clients into her chair at Cashmere Salon & Day Spa with a complimentary drink before rolling up her sleeves and setting to work designing a new cut, color, or hair treatment. To ensure clients leave looking their absolute best, Andrea uses products from Pureology and Bumble & bumble. And, she can even turn her attention to the body, waxing away unwanted hair to reveal smoother, softer skin.
No opportunity for relaxation is overlooked at Trouble Salon. Just inside the entrance, plush red couches laden with pillows sit behind a red curtain. Adding to this ambiance are modern paintings and the occasional lit candle. Hair services start at shampooing stations, where comfy massage chairs soothe muscles while the stylists do their work.
Once situated at the styling stations, clients continue to be put at ease by the staff's expertise in many areas of hair care. In addition to cuts, the beauty experts can add vivid highlights, smooth out hair with Brazilian Blowouts, or add extra inches with extensions, helping clients finally reach the hair-length requirements for roller coasters. The staff also includes aestheticians, who administer eyelash extensions or wax away unwanted hair from the face and underarms.
Fresh stays true to its name by staying on top of beauty-industry trends. The salon's mani-pedis, which were featured in a FOX 31 "Beauty Ambush" segment and in The Knot, beautify nails with ultra fashionable Kevin Murphy and Deborah Lippmann polish.
In addition to refreshing nails, Fresh reinvigorates styles with blowouts, waxing, and lash extensions, often using a line of products and supplies made in the United States. Fresh also pampers kids alongside their moms, offering kid-friendly mani-pedis and fun hair braids.
