I had the best time here today. I got an eyebrow wax, gel mani, pedi, band haircut and was so pleased with everything! Everyone was so friendly and fun to talk to. They really made me feel special, welcome, and appreciated. Everyone went above and beyond my expectations. Monikaii did my nails and was so helpful and creative. Thank you for such a great experience. I will definitely be back!
Great service! I've had my nails done by several of the techs & every time has been consistent! Very clean and well organized. I'll never go anywhere else!
Came here for my BRIDAL MAKEUP and up-do. Jo did my makeup and another girl did makeup for my best friend and my mom. All of our makeup was FLAWLESS!! I am so glad I paid to have my makeup professionally done. It was so worth it! I came for a trial and then again on the wedding day. Each visit was $100 - but this seemed to be in line with other professional make up artists. The makeup photographs well, too. She uses professional grade stuff that won't reflect off the flash or make you look like a clown in person. You look natural in person and in the photographs. Not many artists get that right. Jo is so sweet! We chatted the whole time. She listened to what I wanted my makeup to look like and she nailed it! They also have a full bar, so you can have a cocktail, wine or champagne while you wait or as you're being helped. My up-do was exactly what I wanted, too. 4 others got our hair done (just a wash and style) - we were all very pleased with the outcome. I definitely recommend this place for makeup and/or an up-do.
This place makes an average girl like me feel like a pampered movie star. Not only that... they can ACTUALLY transform you into looking like a rock star if you wanted it. From unique, customized glamour nails, to hair styling and make-up... they do it ALL. I really love the girls there, I worked with Melly. We had a group of 4 in for pedis, love the bench design. It was really fun, they have a bar and your service comes with a drink. Joa is incredible, she is an inspiring business person with a vision. Why can't all salons be like this? The interior is very chic and modern, clean, not overly cluttered, very great taste in decor. Extremely friendly personable service. High end service and amazing results and priced just right. Gottta love it!
So I've been in Denver a little over a year and the transition from LA was not exactly an easy one. My search for the perfect nail salon began the moment we arrived. It took me 6 months and countless botched manicures to finally find my salvation...Melly @ Salon Joa! Melly isn't a nail tech, she's an artist. Her designs are inspired and unique to the individual she's working on. Not only that but my gel (shellac) generally lasts 4-5 weeks! I can't recommend her work enough and feel lucky to be one of her clients. If you like fashion and enjoy expressing your personality through design don't hesitate to book with her!! She's truly amazing!!
Cristela did an amazing job doing an ombre/balayage for me. I have natural dark hair that hasn't been colored in over 10 years and she made it look flawless. She knew all her colors and how to correct something like my dark resistant hair. She was also sooo patient with my haircut. I kept asking her to cut here, trim there, oh can you go back and cut a little more? She was soo nice. And she was correct too, as much as I love the color she gave me, I will go back and have her lighten it a little more! her technique is amazing.
Salon Joa is amazing! I am new to Denver, and needed to find someone to replace a great stylist I had back in CA. When I walked into Salon Joa...and by the way, their place is AMAZING!...I was warmly welcomed and introduced to Christina. She sat me down, listened to what I wanted, and then delivered! She is really great, and great to talk to as well...I felt like I had been working with her for years. I feel lucky to have found Christina and Salon Joa right off the bat, and I will definitely be back. Adding an extra *, they are so good!
This place is filled with incredible talent!! A little bit of everything from Barbering, Hair, Nails, and Make Up! The environment is fantastic! And the people are amazing!! You would be a fool to go anywhere else!! Hoa is the ONLY Barber I have let touch my hair in the past 5+ years! You will never be disappointed!!
Hoa for sure is the best - I've been going to him since 2004 and was sad when I moved to Seattle and had to find someone new - but was able to stop by at the new place on a trip to Denver. It's a great spot. He is quick but attentive and just all around good people too! Highly recommend
This place is a gem! I went there with my sister and her bridal party to get our nails done for the wedding. There were 5 of us and they were able to accommodate all of us on short notice. The place looks amazing. And I know they keep everything clean and sanitary if that's what you're into (I always pay attention to things like that). The service was great. And the best part: we got free cupcakes and wine while getting pampered!
Crystal anointed my hair with color and I love the results. I started seeing her about a year ago when I moved nearby and was looking for a new stylist. She spent a good amount of time listening to me and checking out my hair before the initial haircut. I was really pleased with the results. Eventually I inquired about covering up my rapidly spreading get which I have never covered up. Crystal answered ask my questions and walked me through the process. I took the dive into hair color 6 months ago and I've been really happy with it. I appreciate the friendly feel of this salon. Everyone I've walked in, I am greeted warmly and offered a drink. Highly recommended
Salon Joa is one of the best things to happen to East Colfax. I hadn't even heard of this place, but went in for a mani/pedi because my son had given me a gift certificate. I was immediately greeted by at least three super friendly people wanting to offer me a cocktail. I wasn't quite ready to dive into the sauce at noon (although I totally applaud the other customers who had already taken advantage of this offer), so they made me some hot green tea. They were also doling out fresh cupcakes from Mulberries. What more could I ask for? Monica gave me an amazing pedicure and manicure. After a recent move, my nails were trashed. No judgment from Monica though, she got right into a plan to remedy my problems. She was very patient, paid lots of attention to detail and my nails look absolutely perfect. On top of that, she was super sweet and from what I observed, everyone else working there was the exact same way. It's like they cloned an entire staff of friendly, attentive people. The environment is very nice too. Aside from what I now call the Circle bar, they have flatscreen TVs, very comfortable chairs, lots of light, and it is extremely clean and organized. If you want to go to a place that will do a great job and make you feel very good about yourself, I suggest checking this place out. Like many of the other yelpers, I hesitated to write this because I would love to keep Salon Joa a secret for me and all of my friends to enjoy. But, they completely deserve five stars. I just hope they remember me when they get famous ...
Have worked with the fun and talented professionals of Salon Joa a few times, always with great results! Jo is my favorite make-up artist ever! I love my look every time I see her! She is super sweet and takes the time to get to know her clients! Felicia has done my hair twice, once for engagement photos and for my wedding. She's phenomenal! Last week I got a fabulous mani pedi by Melly. My nails still look great! I've gotten so many compliments thanks to these beautiful ladies! The salon is gorgeous, the staff is so sweet and attentive, definitely a VIP experience!
