The Inspiration- In Her Words: “I grew up with my mom doing my hair and that of my siblings. There were five girls and one boy, so mom got a lot of practice. My mother went through beauty school in Washington while pregnant with me, which is why I have always believed that the need to do hair is in my blood.”
Hether opened her salon in 1999 with the vision to create an Old World Salon that had a comfortable feel and a highly innovative staff up on all of the latest techniques. She wanted to set the higher standards for the industry, and wanted to do something in and for the community where she grew up.
Customer service and education are the cornerstones of success. After more than three decades in the business, Hether feels comfortable providing both. Her experience has taught her that customer service is vital to success and failure helps you grow. Hether is hard working and will do whatever it takes to make her client more comfortable with their hair and will stand behind her team so they can do the same.
One of Hether’s goals is to provide consistent education for each member of the staff. There is always something new to learn. They were one of the first five salons in Colorado certified with Bumble and Bumble products and are consistently in KMS and Goldwell’s top salons. Hether is a licensed educator and every new stylist entering the salon must train under Hether for six months to two years. This education encompasses, learning the basics of how Hether cuts, customer service, chair education, products, styling, placement techniques and color.
Hether has traveled all over North America and Europe to participate in competitions and shows. When she is not creating beautiful styles or traveling, this fiery redhead enjoys her daughter, son and daughter-in-law and finds peace in the mountains around Grand Lake.
Her personal philosophy: We need to constantly challenge ourselves and push to the next level of learning. Within us all is an unlimited amount of potential and nothing is out of reach. Recognizing this is the first step of achieving your dreams. Each season brings change which leads to new thoughts, excitement and inspiration in our industry of beauty and fashion. Change is always good.
