3 years ago the doors of Mane Ave Salon opened and today is one of the busiest salons in Pagosa Springs. Located in downtown Pagosa, Mane Ave Salon is housed inside a glorious Victorian building right next to Kipp’s Grill. Inside boasts of an eclectic array of steampunk novelties accentuating the beauty of the old style ambiance. 6 stylists: Ashley, Lisa, Dallas, Mariah, Erin, and Mackenzie make up the group of women occupying this space. As a full time salon, their services range from individual to individual.
Ashley Burson is a 12 year stylist who, like so many others, fell in love with the beauty of Pagosa and made it her home. Along with Lisa and Dallas, Ashley wanted to have a place of her own to do what she loved, so the 3 found the perfect location and opened Mane Ave Salon and have been busy ever since. “Definitely call for an appointment” seems to be the theme amongst all 6 stylist. Though their doors are opened for walk-ins Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm, it is best to call ahead to make sure you can be seen. Monday’s and Saturdays are by appointment only. “We’ll stay late if need be,” Ashley states. “The other night I was here until 8pm working on a client.” That commitment to the clients along with the great job they do is what has kept Ashley and the other stylists busy since day one.
“I love to see the change in the client and the smile on their face when I’m done. ” Dallas, a 5 year stylist who also offers eyelash and hair extensions and will be adding on microblading in April. All of the stylist seem to have the same outlook about their clientele. “We want you to feel good about yourself. Take time out to do that.” Lisa, an 18 year veteran and co-owner states. “It’s important and its okay to feel good.”
Mane Ave Salon is not just a women only salon. They have a specific line for men as well called Billy Jealousy. Here in Colorado, beards are a very big look. They have many male clientele who come in regularly for haircuts and beard trims. So men, make your appointments!
“I love that we can all ask each other questions and opinions on what we’re doing.” Mariah tells us. “We all have different experiences and it’s nice that we can all communicate with each other. Everyone gets along here.” The camaraderie is something that is definitely felt when you walk into the building. Being greeted with smiles from busy stylists shows how much they appreciate your business as well as each other.
