Earlier, I lamented about my troubles with finding a new hairstylist. Having written about fashion and beauty for the past four years, I have had a chance to meet some of the most amazing and talented stylists in the Denver metro area. I love all of them dearly, and I always learn new things from them. Most of my introductions to new products come from these individuals. But I can’t help but feel guilty about not being able to exclusively showcase one place. You see, a lot of my writing work requires me to be in the know about places all over the area. Therefore, I can’t showcase one salon all of the time.
But as I mentioned earlier, my cousin is a hairstylist. I know how much it hurts when they find out that their clients have cheated. When you skulk into the salon doing the walk of shame and begging your stylist to fix a disaster after you’ve strayed, it can be worse than calling your most amazing lover ever and begging him to take you back. After all – people look at your hair every day. Only you live with the knowledge of being marginally satisfied by your current bf.
So what’s a girl to do when her fabulous circle of besties consists of several people who work in different, competing salons? Well, I choose to run, hide and let my ends split until I end up looking like Cameron Diaz in ‘Being John Malkovich.’ Honestly though, I try to spread the word about all of the places I’ve been privileged enough to tour. Each one of them has something unique that makes it the perfect place for somebody. I work like realtor, trying to figure out what my friends are looking for and pointing them to the place that meets their needs and wants.
I will NOT recommend a place with sub-par service, however. Thankfully, my beauty industry buds all work for reputable salons with great service. If you’re new to the area or simply want to try something new, I can recommend one of several stylish salons at which you will end up with a style that you love. The fact that I know people who are employed in them is simply an added bonus.
