She has tested my skills again and again and I now feel comfortable to try them on you! :) I have gained knowledge of top color lines and am able to play with and bend the laws of color to create unique and lasting designs for my clients. I have also become an expert at prescribing top of the line retail products so that my designs will look as great at home as they do in my chair.
    I would consider women’s cutting and men’s grooming to be my specialty and first love. I feel passionately about my color designs and sending beautiful works of art out onto the streets of Denver.
    I am committed to the beauty and fashion industry and love to share all aspects of this business with the guests in my chair. I love yoga, running, snowboarding, cooking, all things French and the outdoors. I am an outgoing, friendly, caring, hardworker and fast learner with lots of energy and I am so happy to have found a salon with a great vibe and a fast pace to call home.”

      The Denver Art District on Santa Fe

      The Art District on Santa Fe is the hub of the Denver art scene, with the largest concentration of art galleries in Colorado, featuring more than 40 galleries, shops, and restaurants. Art lovers can find everything from traditional art to contemporary and emerging art, including painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, graphic art, and textiles. On the first Friday of every month, galleries attract lively crowds when they open their doors to the public for the First Friday Art Walk. For the more serious art crowd, Collector’s Night is held every third Friday of the month. The Museo de las Americas (861 Santa Fe Dr.) with exhibits of Latino art from all areas of Central and South America, is another popular attraction in the neighborhood.

      Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe is a unique, nationally known art and cultural district with over 60 galleries, restaurants and shops located a few short blocks from downtown Denver, Colorado. The Art District opens its doors freely to lively crowds for popular events such as the First Friday Art Walk, held every first Friday of the month, and Preview Night, a more intimate gathering held every third Friday of the month.

      Santa Fe Drive has had a long history of artists and artist’s studios. In recent years many galleries and artist studios began to move into the area as rents in other parts of Denver rose. In 2003 a group of about 17 galleries, museum and theatres organized the Art District on Santa Fe as a non-profit corporation with the following mission statement:

      Since 2003 membership in the Art District on Santa Fe has grown from 12 to over 60 creative industry members between Alameda and 12th avenues on and near Santa Fe Drive and Kalamath street. The rise in membership and creative activity in the Art District, a vital “Gateway to Denver” commercial corridor, has become a national model of success in community revitalization led by the creative industries. Our success has been featured in national publications such as Travel+Leisure, USA Today, CNN, Sunset Magazine and the New York Times, amongst others. One of the Art District’s “secrets of success” has been the on-going cooperation and the genuine welcoming spirit between its membership and the general public. The Art District freely opens its doors and welcomes guests from seasoned collectors, to artists, to new art lovers, to join the friendly and welcoming feel of the Art District.

      The ADSF works with other neighborhood organizations such as NEWSED and the Maintenance District to improve and beautify the area. For example, the ADSF and NEWSED split the cost of the street banners; the Maintenance District teams with the ADSF to tackle graffiti and to beautify the streets and sidewalks.

      The Art District offers a free luxury guided-shuttle coach operating every first Friday of the month during the art walk to enhance the experience of the 5,000-plus First Friday art walk patrons. The shuttle coach runs a continuous loop from the Osage St. light rail station, to galleries and creative businesses, and around to parking at West High School at Galapago St. The guided- shuttle coach is available each First Friday from 5:30-9:30 PM, shuttle stops are clearly marked along the way. Shuttle route and parking options are indicated on our map.

      The ADSF is constantly growing with complementary businesses such as architects, yoga studios, furniture and lighting stores, book stores, antique stores, radio stations, restaurants, coffee shops, and full time residents are moving into the neighborhood.

      Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe has gained attention in the national press in recent years. Publications include Sunset Magazine, Desert Living, and Travel Leisure Magazine. In addition, the cities of Cleveland, Ohio, Sacramento, California and Glendale, Arizona recently contacted the ADSF to learn how to create a successful Art District in their cities. The ADSF’s continuing membership with Visit Denver has contributed to its growing cultural tourism business.

      The upcoming year for Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe will emphasize art collecting, educating, community development and working artist studios. ADSF will have a prominent role in Denver Art’s Week and the month of Printmaking. Other events include the Art District’s annual “Best of Exhibit and Awards”, Denver’s Biennial of the Americas, Luminaries, and a multitude of celebrations happening year round.

        PalletFest!!! Upcycling Event and Fashion Show!

        PalletFest is coming! My Hair Trip Salon Denver is doing all of the hair and makeup for the upcycled fashion show on Saturday. (10/11/14)

        Why Pallets?

        Upcycle Events was born through the process of creating Palletfest. Our mission is to spread the word and knowledge of upcycling through fun interactive experiences. Our goal is to provide our communities with a chance to explore the world of upcycling. Upcycling promotes creativity and gives old objects new life. Not only can we make items that are beautiful, fun and functional but we’re also able to keep tons of waste out of our landfills in the process. From the simple to the sensational, the practical to the impossible, from waste to grace, and from trash to treasure, Opportunities are truly endless through upcycling. A whole new world of art and décor are upon us and Upcycle Events wants to be a the forefront of this movement. And that’s how palletfest came about. You can make practically anything out of pallets from a garden planter to a wine rack to a table to a house and in this case a Festival.

        The Upcycled Fashion show takes place Saturday Oct 11th from 5:15-5:45 pm

        See fashion models hit the catwalk in a live upcycled runway fashion show. Wearing incredible, sophisticated, beautiful, one-of-a-kind clothing and décor, the models will change your impression of upcycled materials. The show will take place on Saturday night, alongside our headlining band.
