Richelle then decided to bring the Deva Curl products and curly cut method, along with Pintura color technique back to Denver and embraced the curly lifestyle. All of our staff at Shapes Salon & Studio are Deva Curl certified, and committed daily to embracing and inspiring all our curly clients to love their curl. Through their dedication and continued education Shapes Salon & Studio was awarded Best Salon for curly hair in Denver through Westword’s Best of Denver. Through Deva Richelle also become a certified Deva Educator and continues to innovate and educate her staff and clients on an ongoing basis. We invite you to experience Denver’s original curly salon!

Saw Shannon for the first time and she gave me a great haircut. She made my hair look exactly like the photo of Sarah Jessica Parker I provided! Plus, she said I could get a free bang touch up, which is awesome. Will definitely choose Shapes next time I need a haircut.

Shannon is so amazing!

I really enjoyed the inviting atmosphere of Shapes Salon. The staff was super friendly and Shandan did an amazing job on my curly cut. This was the first time having a cut on my naturally curly hair in four years. If I lived here I would definitely make this my salon. I am super happy with the shape of my hair now.

Shannon was fantastic! She was very thorough in her explanation of what she was going to do as well as home care. I had been told in the past that I shouldn't layer my hair and Shannon made me feel so much better about getting out of my comfort zone with my Christmas tree shape :) The girl knows her stuff..and she's fun!

I don’t want anyone but Shannon to touch my hair ever again.

I’m in Denver on business and in bad need of a haircut. I found Shapes Salon on NaturallyCurly.com and let me tell you this about that. This is the single best haircut I’ve ever had in all my 40 years. Shannon showed me how to get my 2nd day hair looking right (full, adequately hydrated, soft with hold) and walked me through every step of how to make my fine, thin, 3a/2b curls/waves look bouncy and gorgeous. I am not exaggerating when I say I am already looking at plane tickets to come back here just to have her cut my hair again in a few months.

Shannon is so amazing!

Shannon knows my curly hair better than I do, as my hair changes textures over time she customizes each hair cut to it. I always leave happy and with beautiful hair! I will never go anywhere else to get a hair cut or color!

I'm a convert- THANK YOU FOR MY TRANSFORMATION!

Rating

Richelle has made me a natural/curly hair convert. I have spent my entire life fighting my curls and doing just about anything to feel satisfied with my locks. Since elementary school, I have been blow drying my hair, trying different cuts, and following the infinite world of highlights/balayage/ombre coloring as a young adult. In my early 30s and I have yet to feel satisfied. Having a friend who went the Deva route, I decided to give it a try. Now that I have seen what my curls can actually do, with the amazing precision of Richelle, I have packed away all of my hair and curling irons and replaced the space with beautiful products, styling cream, and little metal clips. It has now been a full week since I went to see Richelle and for the first time in my life, I fee like I am seeing me, the real me. Richelle will forever be my stylist and I could not thank her enough. GIVE THE DEVA CUT A SHOT, IT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING!

Great experience

Nearly four years ago on a rainy, summer evening, I had a gal I didn't even know approach me just to tell me about Shannon at Shapes. I scheduled a consult shortly thereafter and finally at nearly 50 years old learned how to truly handle my thick, course, curly hair! Shannon keeps me de-frizzed and only she knows just how much grey I have!

Love. Love. Love.

As always Shapes Salon and Studio is my go to place! There is always such a warm vibe in the air as all the customers and stylist engage in conversations together. Shannon is my stylist and she is far from amazing. I have followed her throughout her journey in the industry. And would never let anyone else cut my hair. She is very knowledgeable on all products, colors and cuts for curly hair.

Today I had my hair colored for the first time in my 63 years of life! I've always been afraid of it after what my mother went through when she started having hers colored. Shannon listened and really took time to understand my concerns about "roots", damaged hair and color that screams "dye job!", and I lost all of my fear. She did an incredible job! She really understands curly hair, as well, which seems to be fairly rare in Denver. (I've had more bad cuts over the 11 years I've been here than I care to remember.) And, att Shapes there is none of that "Get 'em in! Get 'em out!" stuff you encounter at so many salons, even expensive ones. I am so thankful to have discovered Shapes and Shannon!

Absolutely fantastic

Richelle is a lifesaver! We brought my 4 year old granddaughter in who has extremely curly hair. We were at a loss and did not know how to handle the curls. Richelle was so patient! She put up with our tender headed little girl screaming as we spent 2 hours detangling her hair. Richelle taught us how to do it and the transformation was miraculous. Now it takes us 10 minutes to do her hair and the best thing is no more tears and screaming! She loves wearing her beautiful curls down! She feels, and looks, like a princess! Thank you so much!!!

RICHELLE

by Carole on AUGUST 14, 2016

I had been looking for a stylist since January as mine had decided she was done with hair. Richelle, at Shapes Salon, had been recommended to me recently and I saw her for the first time 2 weeks ago and I'm so happy I did! She is great in every regard - a true professional in my opinion. She discussed, highlighted, cut and styled my hair - all of which turned out great! I have never had a stylist that actually took the time to really get to know my hair, make suggestions as to what would be needed to get it in the best condition and make it the most manageable as possible, while looking terrific. I would highly recommend Richelle to anyone that does not want just a run-of-the-mill hair stylist but wants a true professional stylist that really knows what she is doing. I wish I had known about her years ago.

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon. She was very helpful with great tips and tricks. I left the salon feeling confident with my new curly hair and I was also given a handout on how to style my hair at home! The salon it self is very welcoming and everyone is very helpful. I will be back! If you have curly/Wavy hair Shannon is your girl!

I'm so lucky to have found Shapes Salon to help maintain my curls! Richelle and Shannon are fabulous! They have both taken the time to learn and understand my curls and they are both very detailed in the service that they provide. The Shapes Salon atmosphere is very laid back and inviting which is an added bonus to the amazing curly hair care that is offered.

Jess gives the best curly cuts I've ever had. She really understands my hair. She doesn't just cut it, she also explains what she's doing and why, and she teaches me how to make my hair look salon great every day. I can't recommend this Salon and especially Jess enough.

Please allow me to rave about this salon. This was my first time going to Shapes. I traveled from Nebraska hoping to get my hair cut the right way. Not only did I receive the perfect hair cut, I found the best stylist in the business. Shannon was so welcoming, patient, professional, and knowledgeable. I had a great experience with her. I will continue to travel from Nebraska to receive her expertise. I love my hair! Shannon, you are amazing! Thank you again.

I love my new hair!!

Shannon is fabulous! I decided to make a huge life change and hair cut too. Shannon was patient with me and gave me good suggestions for chopping my hair, but was very cautious and didn't do more than a little at a time. She told me great tips for caring for my curly/wavy hair through every step of the process. I left feeling totally satisfied with my new haircut and more confident about caring for curly hair. I will forever return to Shannon!

JESSICA IS AMAZING!

I contacted Shapes Salon & Studio via email approximately 2 weeks ago with several questions regarding my curly hair. I was fortunate enough to have Jessica respond to my email. She answered all of my questions and even encouraged me to call the salon. She knew I was nervous about finding a new salon and was kind enough to schedule my appointment with her. BEST.DECISION.EVER. The salon's owner was very welcoming once I arrived for my appointment, which was an added bonus to my experience. Jessica made me a believer in my extra curly hair! She explained in detail every step of the way what she was doing with my hair and why. I did not feel that my appointment was rushed, and she made sure to answer all of the questions I had after my amazing hair transformation. I could have cried once I saw my hair after Jessica worked her magic! I have found my new salon and stylist!

Richelle gave my son one of his first haircuts and he's 26 now! I wouldn't trust my hair color or cut to anyone but Richelle or someone that works closely with Richelle at Shapes. I lived in Manhattan for 5 years and waited until I came back to Denver to see Richelle for my hair care!!

I just wrote a review and am not too sure if it went through. I don't mind writing another because I can't say enough about my hairdresser Jessica. I have been going to shapes for the past two years. She even cuts my sisters and niece's hair. Jessica has never let me down. I never worry about her cutting my curls too short or my hair coming out lopsided. NOW we curly girls know what that means. LOL Check Jessica out, you will definitely not be disappointed. :0)
