Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I tactfully guide them to a choice that will flatter them more, maybe using some of the elements they like about the other style.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
I offer my clients cold drinks, and I can also do makeup, mani-pedis, and scalp massages if they schedule them in advance.
Beauty by Brit is a private full-service salon within Phenix Salon Suites. Unable to imagine herself doing any other job, hairstylist Brittany Miller loves working with hair and provides haircuts and rich color and conditioning treatments with Redken products. In her intimate salon space, she shows an expert hand with everything from men's haircuts to sun-kissed highlights streaked into locks.
A portrait of Audrey Hepburn throwing a flirtatious look over her shoulder sets the scene in this two-chair suite, where stylist Mary Boswell aims to make every client feel like a star. In character as Holly Golightly, Hepburn appears with the iconic chignon and highlights—a look Mary herself can replicate with updos and color treatments.
Applauze Salon is an upscale and chic environment with a team of expert hair artists. Skilled in the creation of cutting edge, classic, and Albert Einstein–inspired haircuts, these stylists use high-quality products from L'Oreal and Moroccan oil. While primarily a place to get one's hair trimmed, Applauze also offers facial services.
At Zandi K Salon, everyone has a story. Stina Nelson didn't realize her passion for massage until a string of bad car accidents led her to the muscle-mending techniques for her own pain relief. Co-owner Nicki Wenz, meanwhile, worked as one of just 12 national Aveda makeup artists in the mid 2000s, traveling the country for photo shoots and trade shows. Educators, artists, world travelers, and Aveda-trained beauty professionals all gather within the earth-toned and stacked-slate walls of Zandi K to lend their life experiences to the looks of others.
They get a little help from their products, of course. The team uses all-natural, plant- and flower-based Aveda products made with sustainably harvested ingredients that are gentle on hair, skin, and Mother Nature's patience. These combine in services that run the gamut from styling and coloring to waxing and ousting acne with facials. But before clients watch their appearances transform in minimalist, steel-framed mirrors, they can sit back in the waiting room with a Session beer, Barefoot red wine, or fruit-infused water, and share their own story.
Sunlight spills through floor-to-ceiling windows at Denver Hair Design, casting a bright glow that bounces up to the ceiling and warms the white chairs in the waiting area. At haircutting stations, attentive stylists—including avid trend-watcher Dena Sisneros—transform tresses with custom blended hair color, ombre highlights, hair extensions, and precision cuts—all techniques they learn at continuing education courses.
The women-owned salon always treats clients to complimentary beverages, and never double-books appointments, ensuring their clients don’t feel rushed. In this relaxing atmosphere, stylists hand over their undivided attention whether consulting with clients or listening to them name all the US presidents in pig Latin. Free parking outside the salon means that clients with cars don’t feel the need to hurry home, and garage doors open to reveal an inviting patio.
