About Us


          At Johan Hair Studio we provide a professional, friendly, and relaxing environment and promote healthy natural hair care for the entire family. Our family has been in the business of caring for your hair since 1934 and we apply that knowledge, experience, and passion for hair to every client we work with! Although we are experienced with and enjoy working with all hair types, we have a unique passion for curly hair! We are dedicated to continually educate so that our curly clients can benefit from our ever increasing expertise. At Johan we use the revolutionary and innovative DevaCurl cutting technique and color procedures. The Deva curl cut discourages frizz and encourages your beautiful natural texture.


          Never again leave a salon with haircuts that leave you with a frizzy triangle shape (flat on top and wide on the sides) or color procedures that leave your hair dry, damaged, and dull! Deva Curl is not only about cutting curly hair, it is also about caring for curls in a healthy natural way. Our hair is an organic fabric and requires special care! We carry the complete DevaCurl line, which is proven to produce beautiful, healthy curls. Check out their website to see what it’s all about!

           Hair styling is more than a job to me, it is my passion! My desire is to help you express your personal style, and go above and beyond your expectations. I make every effort to educate each client on how to style their hair at home to achieve the look they want. I firmly believe in continued education.  It  is my responsibility to find out what's new in the industry and to be informed of current trends and technique. I consistently take classes concerning cutting, color, styling etc.


            Though I love all hair types, I am most passionate about naturally curly hair. Having naturally curly hair myself, I know it's challenges. I consistently attend seminars and workshops not only locally, but across the USA. I am a Certified DevaCurl Stylist, educated in Manhattan, New York City, at the renown Devachan Salon and Spa. I am also a member of an exclusive group of talented professional stylists who have focused their careers on curly hair care, called Curly Hair Artistry, CHA.


            Besides connecting almost daily, we meet twice a year in different States, to educate and curlaborate! I’m passionate about my commitment to empower my clients with pride and confidence in their naturally curly hair! Or as I like to say "Embrace your inner curl!" I would love the opportunity to welcome you to my new salon between Monument and Palmer Lake, where I believe you will feel very much at home and appreciated!

            I have been working in the beauty industry since 2006 and consider myself an artist in every aspect of my personal and professional life. Inspired by modern fashion trends, I seek to bring style, color, and vitality to all of my clients! I love that doing hair allows me to express my creativity and meet so many great people with whom I have developed lasting relationships.


            My styles range from classy to edgy and I love doing funky color and modern texturized cuts. I focus on educating my clients on great products and styling techniques so that you can achieve your new style’s full potential on your own every day! I also love working with curly hair! Being a curly girl myself, I understand the difficulties having natural texture can bring! Fortunately having the right cut, color, and styling products and techniques makes a huge difference in the style and health of your natural curls and that is what inspired me to further my curly hair styling education!


            I completed my Advanced Inspired DevaCurl Stylist training in LA, where I learned advanced methods of cutting, coloring, and styling for various types of curly hair. I am also a Curly Hair Artistry member, which gives me constant opportunities to continue my education and also allows me to collaborate with, and learn from, other talented and inspiring professionals in the industry who are focused and passionate about curly hair! When I’m not in the salon, you can find me in the mountains camping or off-roading with my family, riding a motorcycle on Colorado’s beautiful highways, or singing my heart out on a stage somewhere!
