I have been a long time resident of Denver and unfortunately my stylist moved away. So, a friend recommended Vida salon to me, but warned me of the pretentious nature of its stylists. She advised not to go to Bradley, Vinny or Emily because they always seemed to have personal issues interfering. So, I went to Emma being she was available and I figure was safe. Wrong. Lets start with the cut. I realize the younger kids want funky but I asked for a modest normal cut, and got something opposite. I'm not sure if it was an attempt at style or just a lack of talent, but it wasn't what I wanted. Then, the color. Again, I'm not sure if it was an attempt at style being she is pushing the frumpy cute level herself, but I did not get a color that was right. Blond is blond, not goldish...the whole thing was a disaster. Maybe she is new and learning but I think the prices didn't reflect that and someone should have told me I was a guinea pig. The funny thing is, I also overheard Emily discussing her hangover from the night before, with one of the other stylists, which I find extremely tacky and unprofessional. Anyhow, I will not be retuning to Vida.
Jackie is the best hairstylist I've ever had! I've tried so many places here in the Denver area - and never go back to any of them more than once. I'm not picky, I just know when it looks right and feels right. Her personality - awesome! She makes you feel really comfortable and welcome. Jackie is extremely knowledgeable, always keeping up with the latest trends, products, and techniques. Hair color - awesome! Color is always exactly the way I want it! I'm a very dark chocolate brunette and the color and highlights always turns our gorgeous! And the best thing - my hair continues to look healthy and shiny. Haircut - awesome! The most important thing for me is how you hair looks after I wash and style it myself for the first time. After my hair cut/hair color I just simply blow dry it - no styling needed - and it does look really good! I'm not a type of person who likes to spend more than 15 min styling hair at home. The easier the better! And now Jackie opened her own place - Salon 17. Congrats!! "
I have fallen love with Ergo salon, Aveda, the girls at the front desk (they're all beautiful inside & out), and my newest love is the awesome adorable Kylie who styled my hair today! I've been needing this for a while, but just didn't know who to trust. I've had some bad experiences and I've done worse myself. I was sure when I told Kylie to remove the dead & damaged hair, that she was going to have to shave my head bald! But it wasn't as bad as I thought since I've been using Aveda. And Kylie fixed me! And my hair too of course! She gave me a style that I love, and that was just for starters! She used products that made my hair look and feel so healthy-even after all the damage I've done! She's also convinced me to come back so she can do a color- the real way, not out of a box, which is all I've ever used. She taught me things about my own hair that I didn't even know and she even showed me how to blow dry my hair so I can get the same look at home myself!
Diego Huizar at Salon Vo is phenomenal!!! My last good stylist moved back to Russia and I floated around for a year or two with bad hair. I saw Salon Vo while leaving my appointment at Dr. Reval's office, and met Diego after reading other positive reviews of his online. He is SO very talented. He looks the part, acts the part, is a true artist, approachable and friendly. He trained under the very best in Cherry Creek, and it's very obvious when you visit him. He is no amateur.Diego quickly turned my cruddy hair into beautiful, shiny, gorgeous hair with a great shape. The color he does is the best I've ever had, and the best I've ever seen. His smoothing treatments are life changing, and my new cut allows me to wake up, do my hair fast and efficiently, and I have never received so many compliments in my life! Don't waste your time going elsewhere. Diego has the magic touch, and his talents and service are unmatchable. And, he's SUPER nice!!
Moving 600 miles means finding lots of new personal service providers. It often takes a while to find someone you really like to do your hair. I randomly selected Ergo Aveda based on its Stapleton location. My initial consultation was with Eddie Romero. What a lucky break for me! Eddies impressed me with his analysis skills - my hair, my face type, my skin, my lifestyle. What he thought would work for me and why. I've had two appointments with him now, and a third coming up. My color match is excellent. The new cut Eddie suggested gets me lots of compliments. He is young, smart, creative, and fun - an up and comer! You'd be very smart to check him out! Also, the salon is excellent in communicating with you regarding appointments and such. Parking is easy and the salon atmosphere is friendly and inviting.
While in town for a wedding they were able to fit me and my friend in for color and cuts. The hostesses were great at pointing out bars that I could kill time at when I misjudged the time and showed up way too early. My stylist Arica was kind and very very competent. It went quickly and was affordable for the quality of work done. My color came out a little darker than I'd wanted but I think it is because stylists don't often believe that I want the color I'm saying. I think that if I were to return again it would come out perfect. I am extremely happy with this place and feel like my gamble paid off. I would HIGHLY recommend Arica in particular. She was kind, not an annoying chatty person, interesting, and she never made me feel stupid or ugly like some high end stylists tend to do. Ask for her!
Mikael Padilla salon is a great experience. Everything from the design of the salon to all the stylists reassures you that you are going to walk out feeling fabulous. Everyone is well put together but in a fun and funky way. I have been seeing my stylist, Alex Mackison for over 10 years and can't imagine seeing anyone else. I love to change up my hair and Alex always knows exactly what to do. I don't have to give him ideas or show him pictures. He just knows what to do and does it. I have never left feeling unhappy with my hair and am constantly complimented. I have friends who come to town just to see Alex. If you love a great experience when you get your hair done visit Alex at Mikael Padilla. I promise you will leave wishing your appointment wasn't over.
I am not an easy customer. My hair is fine, there is a lot of it, and I am blonde. Those three things are most stylists' worst nightmare. However, when I sat down in Phil Lombardo's chair today, not only was he up for the challenge, but he was also the kindest, most professional stylist I have ever had. He gave me the best haircut of my life, and helped take my "entirely-too-blonde" hair back to a softer, more multi-dimensional blonde that is much closer to my natural hair color. If you need a new stylist, or are looking for someone who will listen with his whole heart, treat you like a best friend, and give you a style that is truly your own, look no further than Phil Lombardo of The Parlour Highlands!
Hello! My name is Salina and I am currently a Hair Stylist at Jua Salon. Today however I am writing a review for Ashleigh the blond Ashleigh!!! I have had a hard time finding someone who can cut a sever bob that is disconnected and edgy but still sophisticated with a nice tight neck line not to mention the asemitry that I love!!! I waited a few days to make sure that it was going to style and look the way I wanted it to. I'AM ABSOLUTLY IN LOVE WITH MY CUT!!! It has been about a year since I have had been this happy with a cut and she nailed it!!! If you are a person who thrives on your hair cut being precise go see Ashleigh. She made me love short hair again!!!!!
Shane is AMAZING!! My friend wanted to have a "spa date" so I agreed to have my eyebrows waxed for the first time. Shane made me feel very comfortable, took his time and was completely honest about his work and product preferences. I never had my eyebrows waxed before because frankly I thought I didn't need it and did a great job myself, my brows are my thing! However, once Shane was done I noticed a huge difference.Afterwards, I decided to have him repolish my gel nails. Overall, great experience. I will be back to see Shane and I've already recommended him to my mom.
