Spring is a relative term here is Colorado–but we can’t help but dream of lovely pastel palettes, pops of bright colors on lids and lips, and barely-there makeup. Here’s just a little taste of trends we’re excited to see this Spring!
Whether a huge salon with many stylists or a small salon with 2 stylists , a salon has to be the right culture for the client. In my many years of working with guests in the salon, I have realized that a small family feeling salon is not everybody’s cup of tea. At AK Studio we love that our salon is nestled in Glendale among many other independent businesses. We enjoy networking with our neighboring businesses and giving our guests recommendations for anything from a great handyman to wonderful restaurants.
They say you attract what you put out and recently it became clear just how true that is. A guest was asking for advice when my other guest said ” Forgive me, I wasn’t eavesdropping but I heard your question and I think I could be of help.” As they were talking, connecting and making friends, it dawned on me that this was not the first time this had happened. Just as Kori and I enjoy giving ideas to our clients, our clients love to share information and make recommendations to each other. We have several clients that have begun to schedule their appointments so that they might see one another. We provide a more private area for guests to have quiet relaxation time but often find that our clients like to hang out and meet each other. If you are looking for a social, supportive salon experience than AK Studio is the right culture for you. Give us a call and make an appointment today 303.996.8070
VALENTINE ROAD explores the murder of a teenager Larry King who had begun exploring his gender identity, revealing the circumstances that led to the shocking crime, as well as its complicated aftermath. The film talked about the National Day of Silence and began to show these young teens with duct tape over their mouths. The image was so powerful that I went into the studio the next day and said “we have to do something with that image.”
The more we talked about the idea the more we realized silence is imposed on many people all over the world. Whether it is because of your political beliefs, sexual identity, your gender, the color of your skin and so many other reasons many people can relate to being silenced. So we began coming up with different ways to “silence” our models that would have a visual impact and be relative to everyone that has been silenced from their truth. We also wanted to show the transformation of being empowered and allowed to speak and feel your truth. This video is our collaboration with Christi Bode-photographer, Daniel Erickson-videographer, Models- Lonnie Hanzon, Jennifer Clark, and Portia Davis.
AK Studio loves collaborating with photographers and other artists in the Denver area to help promote each other and create new concepts and designs. This video shows both AK Studio’s hair and makeup design concept and hair accessory creations. Kori of AK studio spends some of her free time creating feather hair pieces and jewelry.
