 Self Care doesn't have to take a lot of time - despite what magazine and multimillion dollar brands want you to believe. We can help you simplify your self care process and feel great in the skin you’re in.






I began my skin care career in 2004. In truth, my passion for skin started long before that. Throughout my career, the sense of helping someone - whether it be targeting a specific skin condition, educating my clients on the importance of skin care and beneficial, healthy products, or enabling someone to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect to the one within - has served as my foundation and my reason for choosing to be an Esthetician.



I’m so grateful to work in an environment that is bright, bustling and adheres to the highest standards of cleanliness. These factors motivate my creativity and create a sincerely strong family environment. My favorite service is the Spa Pedicure. I look forward to taking care of you, your fingers and toes soon.



“What’s your favorite thing to do Greg? Cut, Color, give people mohawks?” My answer has always been the same: I love the interaction with fun and vibrant people. Styling a client’s hair into a kick-ass, black and violet quaff is a hell of a lot of fun, but so is a classic men’s haircut, or natural looking highlights. For me, hairdressing is about the opportunity to accessorize my client’s personality and lifestyle.

I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist since 1998 and worked with AVEDA since 2000. I am also very fortunate to work in one the coolest salons in Boulder with a team of true professionals who are a blast to work with every day. We’re not about pomp and circumstance; we’re about killer hair and friendly folks in a great environment.



As a Colorado native, I really understand how the climate can affect your skin. With years of experience and advanced training, I can work with you to make specific recommendations for dry skin relief and damaged skin repair. You can have healthy glowing skin. I received my initial esthetic training in the year 2000 and am a member of the Associated Skin Care Professionals. I continue to expand my knowledge through education courses, product knowledge training, and trade shows. I take a compassionate and nurturing approach to skin care and hair removal.



What I love most about being an esthetician is how it impacts the way my clients feel about themselves. I love when my lash extension client arrives and says she is here for her mojo, or when my facial client tells me having clear skin gives her more confidence. It is my intention to help each of my clients access their radiance. I believe it is time for the anti-aging paradigm to shift. Skin care ingredients and technology have come along way since the 1980s. We no longer need to damage/burn/peel our largest organ in order to achieve the healthy, youthful, vibrancy we desire.



I love working at Orange Poppy because of the amazing and welcoming community that has been created by the wonderful staff and loyal clients.



“Life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be.”

I couldn’t agree more with the 8 words above. I am very fortunate to be part of an industry I love for over 20 years. In the salon, I truly enjoy establishing relationships with my clients while providing exceptional hair color and precision hair cuts. I love doing color! Balayage, fashion colors or lived in color, I can create the perfect look to compliment you and your lifestyle.

I have been called a hair clairvoyant because I have a gift of being able to give you your desired hair outcome even when you just don’t know how to explain it.



I love the vibe of the clients, employees, and space at Orange Poppy.  Coming from a corporate environment, I enjoy the flexibility, room for creativity and growth.  I look forward to chatting with you on your next visit. 



 This is my favorite place to go for so many reasons! For one, the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. The staff is super friendly and professional too! I just had my first manicure- looks so good! Orange Poppy also has an excellent selection of shampoos, conditioners and other skincare products. Once you check out Orange Poppy for the first time, you know you'll be wanting to come back!
