I love Vito Pini! I've been going there for 5 years and services couldn't be better. The staff is always professional and helpful. They get very busy but I always get a call back!! (Customer service is really important to me.) The salon itself is always neat and clean too. If you like upscale quality, atmosphere and services, you'll love Vito Pini!

After agonizing over several so-so haircuts by my long-term hairstylist, I made the leap and inquired around for a new stylist. My haircut needed someone with experience and someone who would listen to my woes (patience with me had its virtues). Doug's expertise was just what I needed. After two haircuts and one great color, my hair is well on its way to revival! Thank you Doug, your talent is so appreciated along with such a relaxed and upscale atmosphere. Looking forward to my November appointment.

I first went to Vito Pini Salon to get my very first waxing, and wanted a Brazillan Wax. Catherine was so nice and professional, she had great music playing, and was able to make me feel so relaxed and at ease. I was so scared, and Catherine had me laughing all thru the whole waxing, before I knew it - it was all over and not as painful as my friends had told me. My experience was great, and now whenever I need a waxing, I always call on Catherine, and I recommend her to all my friends!

This is the first online review I've ever written, but I thought the word needs to get out about how great Shandon is. I've lived in the Denver area for over 25 years and been to a lot of stylists - some good, some not. Shandon is wonderful - she's young and hip and talented, has good ideas, is fun to work with - I just can't say enough good things about her. I can't imagine anyone not being pleased with her work - she's absolutely one of the best stylists in the metro area!

I don't normally write reviews but I would like to come to the defense of Karina who is a great stylist and knows her stuff! My wife & I followed Karina from her previous Saloon to Vito Pini (2 Years) and we have always been highly satisfied. My compliments to Doug the owner for having a great salon and I thank him for having such a wonderful (& pretty) stylist as Karina.

After being a Hair Dresser to 6 years, this is the first time I have received a bad review. In understanding, this young 21 year old woman came into my chair at Vito Pini Salon and was asking for a Full Foil all over ""blond hi-light"".
During consultation, I was told she was a client of Ted Medinas and he was never able to make her ""Blond enough"". I responded back “Well you seem to be a natural brunette"", which I recommend due to her outgrowth being very different and dark eyebrows. Due to previous stylist, this young women’s hair was orange with three different sectors of pigment, when she sat in my chair for a retouch. In her insisting she wanted to be ""Really Blond with no roots"".
To this young women’s request, I achieved her blond result to a beautiful even Golden Beige. I was told to apply 50% off her service and charged her $74.50 for her service. It’s unfortunate that she thought I put bleach all over her hair, when I used a lighter method of color to achieve her blond request, without bleach. My clients have always been happy with my blonds and I know she left the salon seamless beige blond to her request.

I have never posted a Review in my entire life but I have to write a review of this salon because I hope no one will go there. I went to Vito Pini for a few months because I followed Ted there. He always did an amazing job on my hair. Last week I called to make an appointment with Ted and they said he was no longer there, but if I switch stylists they would give me 50% off. So, i took there offer and asked for Doug who is the owner of the salon. The morning of my appointment they told me Doug couldn't do it because he had to put extensions in someones hair. So they set me up with Karina. When I got to the salon Doug wasn't even there so they clearly lied so I didn't get 50% off of their best stylist. I have had light brown hair with blonde highlights for about 2 years and I just asked her to lighten me up a little bit more for my 21st birthday. However she didn't listen and she bleached my entire head including my roots! I wish I could post a picture of what she did because it is unbelievable. She should go find another job because coloring hair is not her strong suit to say the least. I'm Italian with dark eyes and dark eyebrows so you can imagine how horrible yellow hair looked. I seriously couldn't believe she did that, my hair was white soaking wet. I told her that it was WAY too light for me, and her response was ""well you wanted to be blonde"". She didn't even ask if i wanted her to fix it. When I went to the front desk another stylists first reply was hunny i'll fix your hair but I didn't want to spend another minute there. That same day I went to Ted and it took him 8 hours to fix what she did. I hope no one goes to Vito Pini, and if you do just ask for anyone except Karina.
I have been looking for a hairstylist who actually listens to what I want, as well as who can read my mind just a little. Whenever I would get my hair cut, I would always feel some degree of disappointment, and what's worse is that I would have to wait until my hair grew back to start over. Finally I went to Vito Pini. Shandon took amazing care of me. She was great conversation, and hilarious! But best of all, my hair looks amazing! I will never settle again. Shandon has a great eye for what looks best and she listened to my attempt at trying to describe what I wanted. The combination finally reflected what was in my head the whole time. Thank you Vito Pini and Shandon!!
Ive gone through my fair share of hairdressers and I am super picky about who I let cut my hair. Shandon is excellent! She listens to what you want, gives you advice and she gets my style. I wont let anyone but her touch my hair now. Not only is she talented but her personality is the BEST! She will make you beautiful and make you laugh :)
I wake up with a great hair day every day. I partially credit genetics, but I also credit Vito Pini salon and my regular hair stylist, Shandon.
I'm very picky about the way I look and I am not one to take a lot of risks, especially when it comes to my appearance. I think trust is important to have when allowing someone to alter the way you look, and particularly when finding ""the ONE"" (the hairstylist you'll cry over when she moves, changes careers, becomes a manager and stops cutting hair, or retires).
Shandon listens to my concerns, and then cuts accordingly. She's great at changing my haircuts so that they're noticeable, but maintaining my overall ""style"" so that I don't freak out.
The staff at Vito Pini is great. I've never had to wait very long to get my hair cut or to make an appointment. Although I haven't had anyone else, other than Shandon, cut my hair at the Salon, I trust that they all know what they're doing. They all have nice haircuts themselves (isn't it scary when you walk into a salon and your hair stylist looks like a mental patient cut her hair?) and I've seen the results of their clients' haircuts.
I recommend this salon. It's hard to find a salon that you want to keep coming back to, but I guarantee that once you get one treatment here, you'll be a repeat customer.

I called to have a haircut fixed. I was crying, trying to make the appointment, the the receptionist couldn't have been sweeter. I got an appointment the next day with Doug, and had the best haircut of my life!!!! Extremely professional staff, personable service and great atmosphere are only the beginning. I couldn't wait to make my 6 week follow up. Worth every penny ;)

I first met Ted when he was at Antoin Du Chez(they are a joke) after one of their colorist messed my hair up and they put me with him to fix it. They swore he was the best and it was true! He was the best colorist I have ever had and he could style my unruly hair better than anybody. I got so fed up with that salon that i had to hunt him down and boy was it worth it. He is a hair god and now he can cut my hair too. Go see him, you wont regret it. I would pay 3 times what he charges, he's that good.

Right. So, I called these guys up because I had just moved into the area and was looking for a new stylist. They gave me an appointment for 4pm the same day (for a haircut and color correction).
I showed up at 3:55, and was told that the stylist was running late. Come back in ten minutes. I wander around Belmar, and come back in ten minutes. She's still not ready.
Twenty-five minutes of waiting in the salon. She's still not ready. I finally get in the chair, the stylist talks to me for thirty seconds, tells me what I need and then asks me to wait a minute. She wanders around the salon for ten minutes, and finally gets on the phone. I see her poke her head around the corner to ask me if I can wait while they deliver the products they need to do my color from their Cherry Creek location.
No. No, I cannot wait any longer. I've already waited FORTY FIVE MINUTES. You've got to be kidding me. Don't make appointments with clients when you're not going to be ready when they arrive. Have the products you need for the services you offer. Really? You're supposed to be professionals.
this is an awesome salon with amazing stylists! every employee I was approached by was personable and comical and I enjoyed my experience with them very much.
I have a classic bob, which is a difficult haircut, and karina did spectacular work on it! I absolutely love it.
I have seen a few complaints about the prices, but I did my homework before choosing a salon in the denver area and anywhere you go in the metro downtown area is much higher priced than vito pini.
I will most definitely be going back to this salon!
I went in to vito pini to have a facial and enjoyed myself thoroughly!!! it was a great experience. the secluded room was perfectly lit and she made sure I was more than comfortable before she started. she gave me every minute I paid for and didn't leave a minute early! my skin has never felt better. I purchased some of the very pricey products as well..... but I am already loving them! I am going to look 5 years younger. every penny was worth it!

After driving three hours from the mountains through a freak autumn snowstorm, I arrived at another Chery Creek salon, Planet Lab, only to be told my stylist was not coming in and they could do nothing for me. Angry and disgusted at their lack of service or concern, I went next door to Vito Pini without an appointment and asked if they could arrange a cut. The receptionist could not have been nicer. She made a phone call and said an off-duty stylist would be at the salon in ten minutes. Then she brought me tea and a magazine while I waited. Deanna, the stylist, was fabulous and I walked away with a great cut and a great feeling about the salon. They could not have been more helpful or kinder....a totally different experience from their neighbors at Planet Lab.

I went in to this salon and they put me with Ted and this guy was truly amazing!!! He knew what he was talking about and gave me one of the best haircuts I have ever had. The color he custom formulated for me matched my personality and was very nicely done. Not only did he know hair but he knew where the good shopping was and some of the best food I've had since I've been here was recommended by Ted as well. I just cant say enough good about the experience at Vito Pini and since I am new to colorado it is comforting to know that there are people at vito pini who do great hair so Im going to tell everybody I know about this place! Now i just need to find a good trainer and I'm set.
