"[Dani} is a fabulous colorist and a good listener"
My daughter and I have been going to Dani for a couple years now. She is a fabulous colorist and a good listener. :-) She can give you what you want, or she can make suggestions. She definitely knows her business! On top of it all, she is super sweet and pleasant to spend "processing time" with! We highly recommend Dani.Denise K. 9 months ago
"Can’t wait for the next appointment."
I had my first appointment about 2 weeks ago and I can truly say it was phenomenal. I didn’t even get in the door properly before I was warmly greeted and checked in. I barely had time to settle in before my appointment with Danielle began (so in other words we started on time). I had both color and cut which turned out beautiful with a mini photo shoot at the end.❤️❤️❤️
The salon itself had a positive buzz that makes you feel excited to be there. The salon was very clean which means they pay attention to the little things. While waiting for my color to process I enjoyed a warm cup of tea. Can’t wait for next appointment.Traycye M. 10 months ago
"Our entire family loves her and loves having our haircut by her."
Dani is fantastic. She is great at her job and fun to talk to. She is a Broncos fan, but she doesn’t let that interfere with her job and stays surprising upbeat after their losing seasons. Our entire family loves her and loves having our haircut by her. You won’t be disappointed and she’s constantly learning more and more to be even more knowledgeable than she already is. She’s fantastic.Jason F. 10 months ago
"I have never been disappointed..."
Dani has been cutting my hair for about two years now and I have never been disappointed. Dani is the only stylist that I have encountered that actually takes her time on a men's cut and pays attention to the finer details. I have switched my hairstyle a couple times, from a pompadore to a casual fade and it looks perfect every time. She's truly an amazing stylist and I appreciate her thoroughness with every cut and her willingness to not only to get know the person in her chair, but to develop those relationships as well. Thanks Dani!!Devon C. 10 months ago
