Meet the Salon and Spa Team!
Mary and Kaitlyn are the ultimate Mother Daughter duo. Mary has a background of business opening and successful ownership so there was no doubt in Kaitlyn’s mind that she was the one to go to when Balayage was in the makes. Mary has been Kaitlyn’s biggest supporter from the very day she mentioned going to Beauty School. After graduating with a Cosmetology license in 2006, Mary took Kaitlyn to Paris for a celebration. In Paris, Kaitlyn was able to shadow a stylist where he performed the Balayage hair painting technique. From that day she knew if owning a salon would be in her future it would be named Balayage. In 2013 Kaitlyn brought a dream to her Mother and asked if she would want to become partners and open a Salon and Spa together. It took lots of planning and discussion from where the best location would be and finding the perfect team. Today Balayage has been opened for almost 6 years! Kaitlyn works behind the chair as a Stylist and Mary is the business bones! You may often find her delivering our much needed supplies and chatting with our guests.
I have had the pleasure of working at some incredible salon and spas in Denver and Fort Collins. I absolutely love the beauty industry and all aspects of the salon and spa world. I started out working at a premier spa in Denver, deepening my knowledge in esthetics and nail care. Then, I moved up to Fort Collins and found my love for hair. I trained with some of Fort Collins most known stylists for 6 years before getting the push to open my own spa and salon. This had been a dream of mine but finding the perfect time and place came right after having my first baby. My Mom stood right by me encouraging me and being the strength which today Balayage stands on. Owning Balayage with my Mom is incredibly special as well as sharing this oasis with my closest hair stylists, massage therapists and estheticians. I am extremely excited for you to experience the most elegant spa and salon in Northern Colorado.

I have 10 years of experience in the skincare industry. I started my profession in California and am excited to bring my knowledge to Colorado! I love helping people achieve their skincare goals and educating clients on their daily skin routine. I have a passion for providing knowledge to people on how to take better care of their skin, and what treatment and products would be best for them. I absolutely love making people feel relaxed, renewed and more confident about their skin.

I’ve had a love for hair since the moment I could hold a brush. My passion and positivity make every trip to the salon both fun and elevating. My goal is to m make each individual feel like they can conquer anything after a little hair therapy. “Life is more beautiful when you meet the right hairdresser.”
I have been a Fort Collins stylist for several years now and absolutely love it. Helping my guests enhance the natural beauty and health of their hair is where my passion lies. I specialize in natural – looking color and hand painted Balayage. I am always advancing my education to stay up on the current trends of the industry.
