plant based & cruelty-free hair studio
On November 7th, 2014, Ametrine Salon officially opened as a single chair suite salon in Downtown Denver on 16th St. As of 2016, the salon is occupying an intimate space in the Santa Fe Art District.
Kat began coloring + cutting hair in kitchens & bathrooms at a young age (like many other hairstylists). However, it took her till the age of 23 to embrace hair as a profession & passion. Her stylist in Boulder inspired her to enroll in hairdressing school & promised her an apprenticeship. A week later, she was figuring out the details & paperwork required for this new adventure! After a year of learning from her mentor, Kat made the move to Denver.
During this journey, Kat changed to a vegan diet + lifestyle. After visiting local salons to get a feel for the vibe & checking their product lines thoroughly, she discovered the vision in her head didn't exist - yet. Many companies created products that worked well, and some made vegan options or didn't test on animals - but finding great smelling, long lasting, ethically produced, highly concentrated, AND plant based hair color + styling potions was a struggle.
Oway styling products & color are the main focus at Ametrine Salon. Their commitment to biodynamically and organically grown ingredients, plus their fair trade sourcing, help to support over 800 communities worldwide. All Oway products come packaged in infinitely recyclable amber glass bottles (which we refill for you!) or recycled aluminum tubes.
