I have struggled for the past four years to find a stylist that does a good job cutting my hair. I find that when I go some place new, I might get a good cut the first time I visit the salon. However, when I return, I'm never satisfied.
All this changed when I visited Jessica at Shapes Salon and Studio. Jessica is a true professional. She does an extraordinary job cutting and coloring my hair. I think that what makes her stand out from the rest is that she takes her time with each client. She is amazing at formulating colors to use in my hair that make the highlights I want look natural and beautiful. She is patient with my thick, wavy hair. (My hair, that was described as "course and unruly" by another stylist at a different salon.) I leave Shapes Salon feeling pampered, relaxed and confident. I won't get my hair cut by anyone else. Jessica has my highest recommendation.
Jamie is wonderful. I spent 34 years trying to figure out my curly hair. In one session she taught me how to properly care for my hair and give myself beautiful curls. Thanks Jamie!
I saw Jamie today for my first Deva cut. She was amazing. She walked me through the process to getting great curls at home and did a great job of educating me. The color she did is everything I could hope for too!
great for curly heads, but avoid owner – I agree with some of the reviews below that the owner of Shapes, Richelle, is not friendly at all. She never looks me in the eye when she greets me and I always feel like she is annoyed that I am there. She answers my attempts at friendly conversation (it can be very awkward) with one word. She complains about her staff and other customers, which I find so unprofessional. She orders them around and scolds them in front of me and I feel embarrassed for her. She has done a good job on my hair for awhile, especially the color, so I continued to go to her, but I have finally had it. It puts me in the worst mood to get my hair done because she is so negative and unhappy.
I second the Review for Jeanna!! – I completely agree with Elizabeth's review.
I love, love, love my hair. An article in the Denver Post this past spring led to the revelation that there are actually stylists for curly hair these days. I started out at a salon close to work, with stylist who "cuts curly" and even though she knew that's why I was coming, blew my hair out straight like a giant helmet every time. I thought well as long as the cut is good I can work it myself. The last time I came home from the salon, my hubby asked me what happened to my head.
In between I started using one of the Deva Curl products and went to their website to find out how to use it and what others may be good for me. I found a whole new Curly Girl revolution going on, along with a search for stylist feature.
This is how I came across Jeanna. My hubby says "do you know how many salons are between Castle Rock and Denver???" But now that I've gone to Jeanna, I can't go back to just anyone.
Like Elizabeth, she talked me through step by step what she was doing to I could repeat the process. I haven't had my hair professionally collored in forever and she selected an awesome color for me. I told her I was completely lazy with my routine and didn't want to have to put much effort into it. Her response was that my "styling" would be done before I left the shower. I then just need to leave it alone to dry.. and she wasn't exagerating.
I've had tons of compliments on my hair, and people at work asking if I'd gotten a perm (do they still do those??). I'm elated to say, I am now a Curly Girl!!
Thank you Jeanna!!
Ask for Jeanna! – I LOVE my cut! I went to Jeanna, who specializes in cutting curly hair. She did a fantastic job on my cut and gave me great instructions on how I can repeat the same steps at home, and I actually CAN! I've never had so many complements on my hair! I've had my fare share of bad curly cuts, but I will deffinately be back to JEANNA! Highly recommend this place!
Best Haircut & Style I Have Ever Had – I'm 58 years old, have been in Denver 36 years, have naturally curly hair and have "changed my hairstyle so many times I don't know what I look like" [ hat tip to David Byrne]. Actually, I do know what I look like now, and am very happy with my own Megan Maggart version of the Curly Girl haircut. Megan was able to quickly interpret my clumsy description of what I wanted my hair to look like (after I originally visited another supposed-to-be Curly Gurl stylist and got a crooked, uneven, partly straight) hair cut, and patiently explained the how and why as to what she was going to do to achieve what I wanted. Then her fingers and scissors sort of flew. I learned exactly how to clean my hair, how to condition it, and how to style and dry it. My hair has never, ever, looked so good, so healthy, so bouncy, so pretty, and so personalized. I live in the Old Littleton area of town, and will drive to Shapes (in the Highlands part of town) for Megan's cuts and styles in a snowstorm! Megan is a friendly, open person, while also very professional. She's extremely talented and not a bit snobby, and she's reasonably-priced. She does not insist her clients buy a lot of products (or any--altho the Curly Girl line is superb, and she can help you decide what you need). I am so grateful I stumbled upon the Shapes site and her name!
Best.Stylist.Ever – I followed Mary Veraldo from a shop MUCH closer to my home in Golden. The greater distance and inconvenience are nothing compared to the number of compliments I receive on my hair. Even people who know me well continue to rave about how great my hair looks, even though my ability to style my hair is so clumsy compared to Mary. The cut and the color are just so good. She also teaches me about my hair ... how to make it work best for me, how to protect it from sun and damage ... and she's just a very practical, good person. I would recommend her to anyone.
Best Salon and Stylist – I have VERY curly hair. I am bi-racial, but my curls are tight. I have been to a few salon's in my life and left crying or having to re-style my hair when I got home.
For the first time in my life, I left a salon with a smile and not having to readjust even one hair on my head. My cut was perfect. My curls were soft and lengthened. I was also able to duplicate the look on a daliy basis after I left using the Deva products.
Megan was my stylist. She was friendly, listened carefully to what I wanted, and was knowledgeable about curly hair of all types.
I highly recommend Shapes for anyone with curls!
