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.

Hairstylist Gina Folkner brings a little bit of glamour and glitz to Artistic Styles' modern salon where she cuts, colors, and styles tresses three days a week. Her aptitude for creating classic or on-trend 'dos is a product of her training, which she did at the Beverly Hills Hair Cutting Academy. Gina also relies on products from J Beverly Hills and Keune to create voluminous curls, super-sleek pompadours, and bobs so sharp they can turn a hat to confetti with one hair flip.
