Now that it’s summer, many of you are planning your summer vaca’s and it made me nostalgic about some of the staff trips we’ve taken over the years.
Over the summer, I’ll give you a sneak peak on a few of our past adventures. Today we’re reminiscing about our first trip to Denver!
We went to Denver to visit Valeria’s good friend Kara (owner of Salon Foushee) and spend some time seeing how they operate their salon and teach them some of our tricks.
Kara and Valeria met early in their careers and traveled doing hair shows together for Paul Mitchell.
In fact here is a pic of Kara with John Paul DeJoria! (…sorry Kara I sure did steal this from your fb page 😬)
Kara owns 2 salons, one in downtown Denver and one in Littleton, Colorado. (They are both gorgeous!) Here are a few pics of our team teaching color techniques at the downtown location.
These photos exist to show we did actually do something hair related on this trip because, like always, we managed to squeeze in a lot more play than work into this short trip. (No one was surprised)
Here are some pics of our fun!
Even though we only went for a few days, we attempted to eat at every restaurant in Denver. We played A LOT of giant jenga. We hiked Red Rocks at dawn. We visited Garden of the Gods, and ended our trip in Manitou Springs.
Sweet Nicolette (who started her career at AVBS and is now working for Kara) sweetly showed us around the city. (She’s the one pictured above with our “flat Casey” who was also along on all our adventures.)
This is also the trip where me made our rally flag.. Speaking of that..Emily.. -what ever happened to the flag?
Speaking of EMILY.. Also.. I found alllll of these on my phone after I got home from this trip. Thanks Em and Blair. (The importance of passcode protection folks..)
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of our past summer fun! Special thanks to Kara Forshay, and the amazing staff at Salon Foushee for hosting us and putting up with our crazy! We love learning with you! ❤️
Stay tuned next week for a very special Wedding Post!!
