Wow! This has been the craziest year ever! We signed the lease on our space for the salon in October and the journey to this point has been incredible. Building a salon is hardwork, but now that we can see it in real life it is so freakin cool. We have been super blessed to have a lot of great people that have helped us along the way!
We started the creative process of building our new hair salon in downtown Denver on Pinterest.com actually… It’s a super sweet site that can be a powerful creative tool. We started a “Salon ideas” board and started pinning pictures and articles from different Salon’s around the world that we liked. We used stuff from other shops, stores, and restaurants as well. Through all the pics and articles a “feel” and “vibe” of what we wanted for our new organic hair salon began to emerge.
We went back and forth with our designer and worked out the design for our own salon. We knew we wanted the interior design of our hair salon to vibe with our eco-friendly philosophy. We got most of our materials through scavenging and donations of reclaimed stuff.
Paul learned how to build this year, and made a bunch of the stuff in the salon from scratch using the reclaimed materials.
We have looked into all the other hair salons in Denver, and just tried to make ours better… There really isn’t another salon like ours in Colorado, maybe any wear. We are super proud of our uniqueness and we love seeing people’s faces light up when they come in.
These last couple of weeks for our salon have been huge. The phone’s ringing, our team is starting to mesh real well, we got our first suite rented and the ball is really rolling.
We love love being able to offer chemical-free salon product and services in Denver, one of the greatest cities in the world! Having our hair salon in Denver is so perfect for us! We’ve really started setting our roots in our Art District neighborhood. The buzz down here is palpable and its so exciting for us and our salon!
People have really been digging our concept. Chemical-free, organic, green, products and services. Salon plus Barbershop plus clothing and jewelry boutique plus art gallery! There really isn’t anything like My Hair Trip around. We are so proud and happy that people are liking what we have to offer at our Denver Salon!Leave a reply
