A Chat with Mallory at Stan’s Downtown Barbers and Stylists
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
It’s important to me to be a part of a historical Denver business and offer a true barber experience. The personal offering at Stan’s that makes me unique is my extensive German training by Schwartzkopf in cutting and color. Therefore, I offer a very rare, double-strength gray coverage rinse for men.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Having recently left the salon world and corporate management, I was ready for a change. 50% of my customers had always been men and I preferred the conversations. Bring on the sports (The Ohio State University), cars, travel, cigars, repair work, libations, business, history, and classic movies.
What do you love most about your job?
Hairstyling is easily one of the most relaxing jobs and it’s excellent preparation for freelance psychology. Best of all is having your regular clients. There’s no better feeling than being excited for a certain appointment with a favorite client, especially when it turns into seeing the whole family!
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“Mallory, I will never see another stylist again and you can schedule me on your calendar for every Friday at 9 a.m.“
