Positively the best thing I ever did for myself!

For too many years I had haircuts based on a walk-in mentality, not based on experience and reputation.

I made my appointment with Kevin Borfitz and was completely confident and satisfied with having him cut over 5"" of hair off. I had brought in a photo of a style idea, and he took that style, and made it mine. I Love the cut, the style, and I have received compliments ever since!

Everything about my experience was fantastic! Anyone searching for a new salon, a new look - this is it! Call Kevin at El Salon and he'll make you look and feel better than ever!

Worst Haircut I've ever Had in My Life!

I was at the salon for 4 hours. 1 of which was literally waiting in the chair for my hair cut from Steve (or Lance - one did my color one did cut, can't remember and am planning to keep it that way). The salon was a ghost town (should have been my first clue). I sat there open to something new and fresh and I got a haircut from 1992. I have woken up every morning for the last month cursing El Salon and will never go back. To add insult to injury, the tab was $105 - not to mention the $190 I paid for color, which was fine, but no better than any average salon in Denver.

The Best Hairstylst in Denver Metro Area: Bruce Fleming

I have been following this stylist around for 16 years and have NEVER had a bad haircut! He actually listens to what I want and I always get the haircut that I envision! I leave the salon feeling beautiful and energized! He is worth his weight in gold and I would go wherever he is. He starts off by asking you what you want, actually listens and then he gives you a wonderful head massage with aromatherapy and moves right onto the genius artistry of hair styling that he is known for and making you feel like a million bucks!!!! Try him out you won't regret it!!! BRUCE FLEMING is his name! P.S. He travels many times a year to the hot professional hair shows and conferences and keeps himself up-to-date with the new techniques and styles required for the hot looks of the year!!!

Love this Place!

I followed Molly to this salon, and she just keeps getting better! Not only is the salon beautiful on the inside and out, the staff is friendly and fun. Molly has helped me transition from very long hair to very pixie hair over the past year, as well as doing my wedding up-do, and I've loved her work every time. Her prices are very reasonable, and she's a really great person.

Big City Style -- No attitude

First note that the salon has moved to Wash Park. Parking is a lot better than in Cherry Creek! Ron Lopez has been cutting my hair for about 8 years now. He does an amazing job. He listens to what I want and combines that with his incredible knowledge about hair. I always look fantastic when I leave. I refuse to put my hair in anyone else's hands. He is the only person I trust, and frankly, the only person who has ever been able to cut my straight hair well.

For the most part, this place is cool, but not pretentious. Fun and funny hipsters who don't take themselves too seriously. I highly recommend El Salon, and especially Ron!

what a pleasant surprise!

so i live in wash park. i walk my dog around the 'hood every night. when el salon moved into the space formerly occupied by my least favorite salon in town, i was excited! not only did they bring in a more youthful feel, but they made it look BEAUtiful. the landscaping outside is seriously fantastic. anyway, i needed a haircut and couldn't get in with my regular stylist, so i took a chance. i knew none of the stylist's at el salon, so i just took the first opening they had. when i got there, the receptionist was super friendly. when i met my new fave stylilst, jamie, i immediately felt i was in the right place. she looked like how i wanted to look: young and hip. she took the time to listen to what i had to say, gave some suggestions and we were on our way. jamie displayed extreme attention to detail and really made sure i knew what she was doing the whole time. when it was time to style, she gave me tips and made sure i was comfortable with my new, fantastic 'do. i would recommend the salon anyday (even to my worst enemy!). thanks el salon! see you for my next cut.

Awesome Hairstyling

El Salon comes highly recommended by me to all my friends. This salon is unique and full of character. They know how to do hair! Not just what you recommend but this team is highly qualified and trained for all hair types. They know your hair better then you do. They are experts in color, waves, and hair styling. The friendly atmosphere and great job they do on your hair will keep you coming back.... even if you have to drive a long way to get there.

Thermal Straightening

I have been going to El Salon for Thermal Straightening for about 4 years. They are fast and efficient and the process lasts more than 6 months. They also keep up on their training. Kevin and Lance do the thermals for me. Nice guys.

GREAT HAIR BAD EXPERIENCE

WHEN I CALLED TO MAKE THE APPOINTMENT THE RECEPTIONIST WASN'T VERY WELCOMING, HE SOUNDED LIKE HE JUST DIDN'T WANT TO BOTHER WITH TALKING TO ME. I GOT A GREAT COLOR AND CUT BUT HAD TO WAIT LONG PAST MY SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT. ITS NOT A RELAXING ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE THE STYLISTS ARE VERY LOUD. THEY DO HAVE GREAT PRODUCTS THAT THE STYLISTS ARE VERY KNOWLEDGABLE WITH. THE SALON IS REALLY DIRTY, I WOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT SANITATION.

Average results but not worth the hassle

I've been to this salon on and off for years, but lately it seems they've gone downhill. I was always grossed out by the fact there was a dirty little dog running around, who is the owners of all things. Definitely seems like that would be against health code laws. The salon has a high stylist turnover, which I took as a sign of unhappy employees or mis-management. If I find someone I love, they never seem to stay long. Years ago this was THE place to be, but they've fizzled out. The space looks weathered (ie. dirty) and in need of a remodel. They still have some very strong stylists, but unfortunately their talent is overshadowed by the atmosphere...loud and chaotic. Not the relaxing environment I seek out.

Loyal Patron

I have been going to El Salon for a few years now and love it! My stylist is not only great, he gets continued training and stays current with styles and techniques. He also helps me figure out what will work with my hair and his cuts last for months and months. Not a week goes by it seems that someone does not assk where I get my hair done and sometimes I literally roll out of bed without even brushing it..a sure sign of a great cut! The only reason I don't list his name is for fear he will no longer have a vailability. I have never felt pressured to buy one single product. My sister in law from Wisconsin got her haircut here while in town and they now ship her products to her..great service!

disappointed

After patronizing El Salon for over two years, I've finally decided to go elsewhere for my hair styling/cuts. At first I was extremely satisfied with my haircut. However, the quality progressively declined while the price continued to increase. You will most certainly find a better bang for your buck elsewhere.

Great haircut with trained stylists!!

I has the best haircut of my life at El Salon. I never skimped on haircuts, but I was a ready for a big change and wanted to go somewhere with expert stylists. Dewey was great!! He gave me a cut I had never had, and was frankly scared of, but it looked fabulous. I got more compliments on my new short do than I ever had with my long, thick hair in layers. He is now my ""guy""!!!!
