Carolyn Klingener - Manager / Cosmetologist 

I am a small town girl who grew up in the Rocky Mountains and pursued my dreams in the city as a young adult. After leaving the slopes of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, I attended college in Tempe, Arizona, and finished my Associate of the Arts degree in Los Angeles, California. After college, I came home and worked for Anheuser-Busch, for four years as a CMT, before deciding to attend beauty school. I began my education as a cosmetologist in Tucson, Arizona but shortly after transferred to Brooklyn, NY. While enjoying beauty school I was also very fortunate to work as a shampoo assistant for 2 years at one of the best salons in the Brooklyn, known as Concept Elite.  I love what I do and feel so grateful to have such an amazing clientele!

Crystal Herrera - Manager / Makeup Artist

I graduated cosmetology school in 2012, and although I have a passion for hair, I quickly found that my true love was with the cosmetics side of the beauty industry. For me makeup is an art form, its a way to express myself and show my creativity , whether it is on myself or my clients every piece of work is different, my canvases are my guests faces and like artwork in a museum they are all unique. Weddings and special events are my favorite , its an honor to spend those special moments with them on such a memorable day in their lives. 

Evelyn Miramontes - Receptionist

I am originally from Chicago Illinois but Denver Colorado is definitely the place I call home.  I have lived here in Denver most of my life and honestly believe that it is the best place to live.  I've always found satisfaction in making people feel better about themselves, which is why I've always wanted to become a cosmetologist.  My main goal in life is to prosper as an Aveda Cosmetologist because nothing is better then making people feel beautiful through hard work and talent.

Andrea Montoya - Receptionist

I was born and raised right next to the rocky mountains here in Denver, Colorado.  I am a mother of a very handsome one year old boy who is my world.  I was introduced to Aveda 3 years ago here at Ergo Aveda.  I love working with people and teaching them about the product we sell here at the salon.  I am also a little bit of a makeup addict.  I love the magic of makeup and the way it can change your mood and make you feel amazing.  I've noticed makeup can really make me and others feel instantly better.  I've loved growing here with my team at work and plan on growing more with Ergo Aveda and as a makeup artist.

Bianca Godden - Stylist

I have lived in Denver for about thirteen years now with my husband and two kids. 
I've traveled around and lived in many different places around the U.S. but Colorado is definitely my home! 
I began my journey as a cosmetologist at the Aveda Institute of Denver. There I learned the art of maintaining beauty on the outside as well as the inside. I believe we must protect and nurture the balance of our bodies, minds, and souls while bringing out the best in our appearance. 

I thoroughly enjoy my career as a hairstylist. I feel privileged to be part of such an exciting, artistic and creative field! I love meeting and getting to know my guests and helping them look and feel amazing! I've had many fun and different professions but nothing compares to my love for all things hair and makeup. I plan to continue learning and mastering my craft and look forward to new experiences and opportunities!

Giovanni Borroto - Stylist

I got into the hair industry shortly after I moved back home to Philadelphia.  I ended up working 4 years at a salon and 4 years after that split between the salon and a barbershop.  Since being in the industry I've specialized in curly hair clients and dry cutting, specifically using Sahag and DevaCurl, both of which are dry techniques.  Recently, I decided to move out west to Denver, Colorado to be closer to my family.  I am a firm believer of enhancing my clients natural beauty and working with what you've got as opposed to fighting the uphill battle to create looks that are far from your natural appearance. I feel that looking your best doesn't have to be a difficult process and shouldn't be.

Valentina Becker - Cosmetologist

My name is Valentina Becker and I welcome you to be my guest. I am passionate about what I do and it shows in my work. I love making my guests look and feel beautiful while experiencing Aveda. 
Come and get your hair colored, a classic or modern haircut and a mineral makeup application. I don't forget about the men either, I always enjoy doing a fade and introducing the natural products that are Aveda men.  
I do manicures and pedicures with the experience in mind. Let me create some art on your nails. 

Stephanie Zissimos - Aesthetician

Stephanie is a Colorado native who enjoys taking advantage of the quick drive to the mountains to hike with her two rescue dogs as much as possible. Stephanie's esthetic craft began in 2011. She was drawn to Aveda because of the company's cruelty free, holistic approach to health and beauty. She can help accentuate any face with precise brow shaping. If you need to relax from life's stresses, a customized facial or back treatment can soothe your soul and freshen your skin. She is also known for her quick, precise and relatively painless male and female Brazilian waxes.

Sonja Ware - Cosmetologist

I was born and raised in Denver Colorado. I always had a passion for hair, makeup, and nails. After graduating high school I took business classes but my main focus was to get into a cosmetology school.  In 2016 I graduated from Northeastern Junior College in cosmetology.  As of right now I am building my cliental and eventually would like to start my own personal business and become an elite cosmologist.  I specialize in hair, skin, and nails. I love the feeling I get when I am able to meet my clients needs, I get a rush from it. I strongly feel if you have a passion and a desire for something go for it and make it your career not just your job. No matter what people say and what obstacles come my way, shoot for th stars.    

Georgina Rodriguez - Aesthetician

I have a diverse experience in facials, skin care treatments and cosmetics.  My skill settings range from facials, body treatments, facial and body waxing, usage of both modelage and paraffin wax masks.  I am also certified in the usage of both chemical peels and microdermabrasion.  Moreover, I am extremely capable of analyzing and determining suitable treatments for client's needs.  What I enjoy the most about skincare is how something as simple as a facial can change a person's whole outlook for the day, how it can make them a happier, healthier person.  I also love to educate my clients, and give them tools that they can take with them to feel empowered, informed and able to be themselves.  I'm enthusiastic, and pay attention to detail.  I am educating my clients, but also creating a lasting relationship built on trust and understanding.
