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.
I began coloring + cutting hair in kitchens & bathrooms at a young age (like many other hairstylists). However, it took me until the age of 23 to embrace hair as a profession & passion. My stylist in Boulder inspired me to enroll in hairdressing school & offered a mentorship. A week later, I was figuring out the details & paperwork required for this new adventure! After a year of learning & assisting in the salon, I made the move to Denver.
After the move, my life changed pretty substantially (considering my friends probably expected me to be the last person transitioning to a vegan lifestyle + diet). After visiting local salons to get a feel for the vibe & checking their product lines thoroughly, I discovered the vision of a holistic plant based salon 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.
I'm incredibly grateful for all of the support I have received from you since 2014 and look forward to seeing you soon!
