The beauty specialists at Classic Coiffeurs have two goals: to pamper guests from head to toe, and to enhance their natural beauty. They accomplish this through a variety of salon services, from luxurious sugar-scrub pedicures to hairstyles crowned with diamonds. They also help clients get glam with ear piercings, spray tans, and glitter tattoos for a better temporary sparkle than a fairy with a learner's permit.
When it came time to decorate her salon, master colorist Ginny Thompson decided on a rockabilly theme: she painted sections of the wall to resemble exposed bricks and dotted other areas with records. This same creativity can be seen in Thompson’s cut and color treatments, in which she draws on 15 years of experience and a cache of products from Pravana—a haircare line that steers clear of hazardous ingredients and animal testing.
Kate Allen considers herself a bit of a magician—she transforms drab hairstyles into chic coiffures with a flick of a blow dryer and backcombing. But these skills didn’t magically appear overnight. They’re the result of five years of field experience, in which she wore the hats of stylist, independent consultant, and manager. Today, she uses her accumulated knowledge to not only style hair, but also to bestow clients with a wealth of insider secrets.
Purelux Hair Salon owner and stylist Brittany Amos has been cutting and coloring hair since the tender age of 12, but it wasn't until she was 19 that her career really took off. She landed a job at a prominent salon in Cherry Creek, where seasoned hairdressers taught her how to craft stunning cuts and impart brilliant color through their mentorship and hands-on training. The training was so effective that she almost became an instructor herself, but decided her learned hands were best suited to transforming appearances than typing lesson plans. Today, she calls on those skills to helm her own salon.
She calls on Wella and Goldwell Elumen products to alter the hue of hair, and the service menu catalogs waxing, makeup, and nailcare services in addition to haircare. The salon itself brims with feminine flourishes—a black-and-white image of Audrey Hepburn alludes to the idea of classic beauty, and a miniature chandelier hung from the ceiling alludes to the idea of elf prom.
Deux Amis Salon's stylists ornament natural tresses with polychromatic rooster feathers in varying lengths and widths. Coiffeurs install each bundle of three colorful quills with a silicone bead, which holds feathers in place four to six weeks without damaging anchoring hairs. Return to Deux Amis for a complimentary removal of feathers ruffled by wear or a fawning seagull . Extensions withstand abrasion from washing, drying, and normal heat styling with curling irons, flat irons, and run-ins with waffle irons.
