Hether - Owner / Master Designer

HetherThe 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. We are proud to be one of the elite salons to carry high end products like Oribe, Goldwell, RandCo and KMS product lines. 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. She recently married the love of her life and is still enjoying the 'honeymoon phase'. 

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.

Ashley - Master Designer and Goldwell Trendsetter

Ashley-SmallAshley is happy to be a member of the Hether’s team and likes the sense of community and how welcoming and warm the salon is. She has been doing hair for over 12 years and started at an early age practicing on her younger sister. She is from Scottsbluff, NE and went to school in Fort Collins, but always knew she would come to Colorado. Ashley is a Goldwell Color Trendsetter and refers to herself as a “color geek”. She believes that cutting and color goes hand-in-hand and she loves to do both. The foundation for this belief is lots of education. She feels that education is really important and she is passionate about learning and training. If she wasn't able to work in the salon, she would probably be an instructor because she loves this industry. 

Every day she strives to be an inspiration to her clients. She wants to be an example by having a great attitude, looking good, and feeling good. When her clients walk in, they know that they are the most important person to her and she makes sure they leave feeling amazing and enthusiastic about life.

She lives with her husband and their dog Rocksy and enjoys shopping, trying new restaurants and spending time with friends and family. She calls herself a goofball and likes to laugh and have fun but believes that change is good.

Landis - Visionary Designer

Landis NewLandis' love for the beauty industry started at a young age. Her mom was her role model as she was trendy and had a unique style. She loves to make people feel good about themselves by listening to what the client wants and then mixing in her knowledge and creativity. She enjoys the time getting to know her clients and hearing about their life and building a relationship with them. She has expressed that she loves to laugh and considers herself hard-working and extremely passionate about what she does.
Landis has a beautiful daughter who she feels has taught her so much about life, like appreciating the little things and not taking anything for granted. Always being thankful for the blessings in her life. 
Landis would say color is her specialty and she enjoys the balayage technique because of the artistic free-hand panting of highlights that create the perfect 'sun-kissed' look. Landis' favorite quote is: "Beauty lies within, but good hair is icing onthe cake."

Leni - Expert Designer

Leni NewHair found me, in all honesty. I grew up in a dance studio, dancing in to university, ultimately getting my degree in psychology. I blended these passions and plunged into the fitness world, where movement and psyche married. After years of teaching, I decided to go to beauty school. This form of art also touches people lives.
I began my career in Salt Lake City 11 years ago. A husband, 2 dogs and 2kids later, we moved to Golden. I have joined the team at Salon Hether's filled with excitement as I fall in love with this group of talent and Olde Town Arvada. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my enthusiasm!
