Accessories are a game-changer when it comes to hairstyling. Add a sleek hairpin, a silk scarf, or a statement headband to instantly elevate your look. It’s an effortless way to add a touch of personality to your style.

Change is in the Air
Is it just me, or is there something about crisp air and crunchy leaves that makes you wanna try something new? Fall is all about transformation, y’all. Trees are shedding leaves and you should feel free to shed that summer hair and blossom into something new!
Look, summer is fun and all, but let’s be real—it’s kinda rough on your hair. All that sun, chlorine, and salt water? By the time fall rolls around, your locks are basically sending out an SOS. Now’s the perfect time to get that trim or switch to a shorter style that removes those fried ends and gives your hair a fresh start.
Do we even need to talk about how fab fall fashion is? Chunky scarves, cute beanies, and layers for days! Changing up your hairstyle can seriously complement your fall wardrobe. Picture this: You, rocking a new shag cut with that oversized scarf and boots. Yes, queen!

Unleash Your Inner Mixtress! DIY Hair Treats Straight From Your Kitchen
Hey there Fluff fans! Ready to turn your kitchen into a DIY hair salon? Let’s look at some fun ideas that your hair will love!
DIY Hair Goodies! A Recipe for Love <3
Today I have three fabulous recipes to dish up some at-home haircare:
1. Avocado-Honey Mash for Hydration
Is your hair thirsty? Whip up a blend of ripe avocado and a tablespoon of honey. Smear it on your hair, let it sit for 30 minutes, then rinse for a hydrated glow!
2. The Banana-Yogurt Shine Booster
Bring on the bling! Mash a ripe banana, add two tablespoons of natural yogurt, and apply to your hair. Rinse after 30 minutes for hair that shines like a superstar.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
Want a dose of sleek and shiny? Mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts water. Use this as a final rinse after shampooing to add a glossy finish to your locks. I wouldn’t recommend this one very often with hair extensions, maybe once a month at the most! We also can offer this service at Fluff if you’re nervous to try it at home.
Remember these DIY hair treats are fabulous for a pampering session at home, but sometimes your hair needs a little extra. When you want to level up your hair game, pop into Fluff Hair Extensions Studio or our color salon for our stellar range of hair treatments. Can’t wait to see you and your fabulous hair!
Hey Fluff fans! So, I installed curly hair extensions yesterday for a customer at Fluff and I had an idea for an article since everyone’s hair that visits us for extensions is truly different. Do some of you feel a little overwhelmed by the different textures available when it comes to hair extensions or are you worried that extensions may not match your hair’s texture and will be detectable from a mile away? It’s actually a reasonable thing to wonder and this week I had to overcome some texture hurdles, so let’s talk more about texture.
Hair Extension Textures
From straight to soft waves and from classic curls to deep curls, the textures available now in hair extensions is as diverse as natural hair. Here are the most popular ones:
Straight Hair Extensions
Sleek, smooth, and shiny, straight hair extensions can instantly add length and volume to your hair. They are easy to manage and versatile for various styles.
Wavy Hair Extensions
Wavy hair extensions are a favorite for those seeking a little extra body and movement. These extensions look incredibly natural and add an effortless charm to your appearance.
Curly Hair Extensions
For a more dramatic look, curly hair extensions can provide the bounce and volume you’re after. They can range from loose curls to tight ringlets, offering plenty of styling options.
Choosing the Perfect Texture
When selecting hair extensions, it’s crucial to consider your natural hair texture. Our expert stylists at Fluff Hair Extensions Studio can help you choose extensions that blend seamlessly with your hair for a natural, undetectable finish. Not all extension textures are available in every color, so sometimes a little bit of creativity is required to create the best look and be budget conscious at the same time.
Maintaining Your Hair Extensions
Regardless of the texture, all hair extensions require proper care to maintain their look and longevity. We provide guidance on how to care for your extensions, ensuring they continue to look fabulous for as long as possible.

Color Me Curious – Thoughts Behind Your Hair Color Choices
Hi Fluff fans, Brittany here! Have you ever wondered why you’re drawn to certain hair colors? Does a fiery red appeal to your bold spirit, or do cool blues and purples feel more ‘you’? Your hair color choices may reveal more about you than you realize, hinting at elements of your personality and mood. Let’s think more about the world of color psychology!
Color can evoke strong emotional reactions. Warm colors like reds and oranges might ignite passion and energy, while cooler shades like blues and greens could bring feelings of calm and serenity. If you’re naturally a brunette but always opt for blonde, it might be an unconscious craving for a more light-hearted, fun-loving persona.
The Power of Perception
Just as colors sway our feelings, they also influence how others perceive us. In society, blondes are often associated with fun and freedom, brunettes with reliability and intelligence, and redheads with strength and fiery personalities. Your hair color can become an extension of your identity and influence how you’re perceived in the world.
Your Color, Your Mood
Ever noticed a mood shift with a new hair color? That’s no coincidence. Lighter hues can inspire a more upbeat, cheerful disposition, while darker shades might lead to feelings of introspection and depth. Want a confidence boost? Opt for a bold, vibrant color that makes you feel like the star you are!
Your hair, your rules! At Fluff, we’re here to guide you through the vast color spectrum, helping you choose a color that suits your skin tone, personality, and lifestyle. As your trusted color therapists, we’re ready to create a hair color that resonates with you on a deeper level.
So, next time you’re contemplating a hair color change, delve a little deeper. It might just lead you to a better understanding of yourself! Book an appointment with us and let’s embark on this color adventure together.
Bridging Cultures through Hair: Unique and Traditional Hairstyles Around the World
One could say that hair speaks a universal language. A hairstyle can communicate so much about a person’s identity, cultural heritage, and personal style. Today I wanted to write about how different cultures express their uniqueness through their hairstyles and how these styles influence modern hairstyling at Fluff.
African Braids: A Rich Tapestry of History
Whether it’s Cornrows, Bantu knots, or Box braids, African hairstyles have a rich history dating back thousands of years. These intricate styles, besides being aesthetically stunning, often carry cultural significance and tell stories of the individual’s social status, tribe, and heritage. Today, African braids have gained global recognition, influencing modern hairstyling trends and serving as a symbol of black beauty and identity. While I can’t promise we can do some of the African intricate braid styles that look like they took eight hours to accomplish, our team does do beautiful braids and styling and we may be able to capture the essence of some of these styles in a forty-five minute service!
Japan’s Geisha Hairstyles: The Art of Elegance
Japanese Geisha hairstyles, known as ‘Nihongami’, are the epitome of elegance and intricacy. These traditional styles, often adorned with beautiful kanzashi (hair ornaments), convey the Geisha’s rank and the season. The influence of these styles is seen in modern hairstyling, with many embracing these elegant updos for formal occasions. This hair is so beautiful and special to me, one could devote an entire lifetime to creating these hairstyles!
Embracing Diversity at Fluff
At Fluff, we celebrate the diversity of hair. We’re inspired by these global hair traditions and love incorporating these elements into our styling. Whether you’re looking to honor your cultural roots or simply want to try something unique and different, our team of expert stylists at Fluff are here to bring your hair vision to life.
Inspiring Stories from Our Clients
We’ve been honored to serve clients who wanted to explore their cultural heritage through their hairstyles or those who wished to experiment with something new and different. These interactions have not only broadened our stylistic repertoire but also enriched our understanding of hair as a medium of cultural expression.
Stay tuned for more interesting hair journeys as we continue to celebrate the universal language of hair at Fluff!
Secrets of a Hair Extension Specialist: What Clients Don’t Know About Getting Extensions
Good morning Fluff fans! From the outside, getting hair extensions may seem like a simple, straightforward process – but in reality I have to say there’s much more to it than meets the eye. Join me on behind the chair as a Fluff Hair Extensions Studio specialist. I’d love to reveal some of the special secrets of the trade!
The Art of Consultation
Every successful hair extension journey begins with a thorough consultation. This is where the stylist analyses the client’s hair, discussing their lifestyle, desired look, and hair care routine. It’s much more than just choosing length and color – it’s about creating a custom, seamless blend that compliments each individual client.
Yesterday I had such a great consultation with a woman that had been experiencing significant hair-loss after having Covid-19 twice… and a bunch of boosters, which many believe lead to increased hair-loss. Getting hair extentions is a big decision and investment and should not be rushed into. I highly recommend taking your time, doing research and meeting with a handful of different salons and specialists. Just like color, sticking with the same stylist will ensure a successful hair extensions journey. “Chair hopping” can increase hair and scalp damage and often times lead to step backs in your hair goals. Hair extensions are a solution to a problem. It is important that your hair stylist takes the time to sit with you and listen to your unique problems and then offer solutions.
Sometimes the stylist you are meeting with may not specialize in the solution that is right for your unique problem. The best and most professional hair stylist will offer you a referral to another stylist, salon and or company that is better equipped to help you with your problem. This particular client, given the location and the amount of hair loss she was experiencing, the more well known hair extension methods such as I-tips, K-tips, Hand-tied, Tape-in or even clip in would have been too heavy for her natural hair causing more damage and would have transitioned her insecurity from “can everyone see my thinning hair” to “can everyone see my hair extensions”. The problem was feeling insecure with how her hair looked, putting in a well known method would have given her more hair, but not solved the actual problem of feeling insecure with her hair.
For her unique hair problem, I recommended a hair topper. A hair topper addresses her thinning hair AND will address the hair insecurity. One has two choices with a hair topper: You can start with a clip-in version OR you can get a tape-in version that is a more permanent option. I consider myself to be a true professional and specialist and I truly love sitting down with my clients face to face and simply listening, I also love troubleshooting and I love finding solutions to my clients problems…. even if that solution requires me to offer them a referral or be able to offer a recommendation where a more expensive solution could be offered.
Color Matching Genius
Hopefully we make it look easy, but do you think your stylist just glances at your hair and picks a matching color from a swatch book? It’s not so simple, I wish it were! Perfect color matching involves a keen eye, understanding of color theory, and sometimes even custom dying the extensions. The goal is to achieve a seamless blend that looks entirely natural.
The Physics of Placement
Where the extensions are placed on the head is not arbitrary – it’s a strategic process governed by the laws of physics. Placements are determined by the client’s hair density, head shape, and natural hair movement. Incorrect placement can lead to discomfort and unnatural movement. We take pride in our methodical approach to ensure a comfortable, natural-looking result.
Perfecting the Blend
Once the extensions are applied, the stylist then meticulously cuts and styles the hair to blend the extensions flawlessly with the client’s natural hair. This requires a keen eye, a steady hand, and a deep understanding of how different hair types respond to cutting and styling.
Maintenance Is Key
Maintenance is the secret sauce to long-lasting, healthy extensions. Our stylists are also educators, imparting their knowledge on proper home care, recommended products, and tips for preserving the life of the extensions. Following the advice of your stylist can make all the difference!
While the process of getting hair extensions can be intricate and involved, it’s all part of our commitment to ensuring our clients leave our studio feeling confident and beautiful. Come experience the Fluff difference at our Hair Extensions Studio in Denver!
Good morning Fluff fans! As I’m waking up today, I had a fun thought: have you ever had one of those days where you just wish your hair could tell you what it needs? 🤷♀️ Well, for a moment let’s pretend we live in a whimsical world where your hair has a mind of its own. I’m pretty sure some days my hair does! 💭🌈
The Morning Battle Cry
The sun starts coming up and you roll out of bed, your hair groans, “Five more minutes, please, I’m still tired!” It’s not quite ready to face the blow dryer’s heat or the tugs of the hairbrush. 🛏️💤
Wash Day Woes
As you lather up with your favorite shampoo, your hair gasps, “Oh no, not the harsh sulfates again! Where’s the nourishing Alter Ego Italy products when you need them?” 🚿😱
The Colour Confessions
Your hair, ever so shyly, might whisper, “Remember when we went platinum blonde for summer and ended up more ‘straw yellow’? Maybe it’s time we visited Fluff’s color experts again for a refreshing tone-up.” 🎨👩🎨 I don’t know about you, but my hair and I would be having some pretty funny conversations about the past!
Summer Style Shout-out
If your hair could squeal with delight, it would definitely do so on the day you decide to try out those fun beach waves. “Finally, a break from the flat iron! Surfer vibes, here we come!” 🏖️🏄♀️
My Final Word
As you tuck in for the night, your hair sighs, “Let’s do a deep-conditioning mask tomorrow, okay? Good night!” 🌙💤
Well, isn’t it a fun thought if our hair could talk? And while it can’t actually voice out its concerns, it’s always giving us signs about what it needs. Listen to your hair and treat it right with Fluff Denver Salon’s range of services and top-quality products. 💕💇♀️
Oops… I Did it Again! – Common Hair Extension Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Hi Fluff fans! Have you ever had one of those “Oh no!” hair moments? Welp, you’re not alone! We at Fluff Hair Extensions Studio have heard it all. So, let’s dive into some of the most common hair extension mistakes and how to dodge them.
The Tug-of-War Mishap
Much of our staff at the time would probably remember… Well, let’s call her ‘Jane’. She loved her new extensions, but the combing… argh! She’d yank her brush through her hair like she was deep sea fishing and caught a monster of a fish! In the end, her extensions suffered, and so did her natural hair. The lesson? She finally got it right with a lot of coaching, as she figured out she should always hold the extensions with one hand while gently combing from the ends and working her way up with the other. A natural boar bristle detangling brush can be your best friend!
Like a Desert Situation
Then there was a client of ours who thought washing extensions daily was a good idea (she got her extensions somewhere else so didn’t have the advantage of a Fluff consultation!). She ended up with extensions as dry as the Sahara. Hair extensions don’t produce natural oils like our scalp, so over-washing can leave them parched. Washing 2-3 times a week is plenty, and remember Alter Ego Italys Silk Blend Oil or De-Lite Protection Oil is your hair extensions best friend!
The Product Overload Predicament
And who could forget ‘Sarah’? Though we recommended against tape-ins for someone in her line of work, where let’s just say she would get very sweaty at night, she did not listen and insisted on coupling tape-ins with sew-ins, even though her hair was naturally greasy (on top of it all). I think she also fell in love with every hair product she saw, and her extensions paid the price and her tape-ins would slip out every few days. Remember, ladies and gents, less is more when it comes to most products and tape-ins simply are not a good fit for hair that is overly oily or if you put the wrong products in your hair, or if you happen to sweat… a lot! Stick to a quality shampoo, conditioner, and a heat protectant that are approved by your trusty stylist… and if you stylist recommends against tape-ins, be sure to listen! And thanks again for the bad review when the tape-ins slipped out and for not listening to us in the first place!
Yes, we’ve all had our share of hair ‘oops’ moments. The important thing is to learn from them. At Fluff Hair Extensions Studio, we’re here to guide you every step of the way, making sure your extension experience is nothing short of fabulous!

Here at Fluff Denver Salon, our skilled stylists stay on top of these trends to bring a touch of runway glamour to your everyday hair style.
The Runway: A Source of Hairstyle Inspiration
Runways are a lot of fun and are a hub of creativity, where designers let their imaginations run wild. However, that mohawk made of peacock feathers might not be suitable for your office meeting or for waiting in line for an hour for ice cream at the Little Man Ice Cream shop in the Highlands this summer. The key is to interpret these trends, taking the essence and translating it into something more wearable. I have personally done hair at loads of runway shows, especially in Los Angeles when I was doing hair for MTV and E! back in the day and I have to say it’s very exciting, particularly when you only have moments to change a hair style along with an outfit!
The Translation: Runway to Everyday
Let’s explore some recent hair trends and how we at Fluff can help translate them for your daily style.
Runway Trend: Ultra Volume
A big trend we’ve seen on the runways is ultra-volume, think ’60s Brigitte Bardot. It’s a bold look that screams confidence, but can feel a bit over the top for running errands.
The Everyday Fluff Translation: Add body to your hair with some subtle backcombing at the crown, giving you that little extra oomph. Pair with a spritz of Alter Ego’s Hasty Too Fluff Up for an added boost of volume.
Runway Trend: Artistic Braids
Braids are a runway staple. From intricate designs to bold and futuristic styles, they always catch the eye.
The Everyday Fluff Translation: Try a side-swept fishtail braid or a sleek braided bun for a chic yet practical everyday look. Both are easy ways to elevate your everyday style while maintaining that runway inspiration.
Ready to bring a touch of runway to your everyday look? Our talented stylists at Fluff Denver Salon are eager to help you translate these high fashion trends into wearable styles. Call us today to book your appointment!
Bespoke Hair Care with Fluff – Crafting the Perfect Routine!
Hi Fluff fans! At Fluff, we believe that a gorgeous mane isn’t a one-size-fits-all deal. Your hair is as unique as you are, and it demands a personalized hair care regimen tailored to its needs. We’re here to guide you through the journey of crafting your perfect hair care routine. From understanding your hair type to the right product selection, let’s step into the world of bespoke hair care.
Understand Your Hair
Understanding your hair is the first step to creating an effective hair care routine. It’s not just about whether your hair is straight, wavy, curly, or coily. It’s about your hair’s thickness, porosity, and overall health. Our stylists are experts in hair analysis and will help you unlock your hair’s full potential.
Choose the Right Products
At Fluff, we advocate for sustainable and high-quality hair care products. Alter Ego Italy is one of our go-to product lines due to its commitment to using natural, high-quality ingredients that are kind to your hair and the environment. Your Fluff stylist can guide you to the right products for your hair type and condition. We are loving the Urban Proof and SheWonder lines for life here at 5280ft above sea level!
The Importance of Regular Trims
Regular trims are a must for maintaining healthy hair. Trimming off split ends prevents hair breakage and keeps your locks looking their best. Fluff stylists recommend a trim every six to eight weeks to keep your hair in tip-top shape.
Protecting and Maintaining Styles and Colors
Whether you rock balayage, love your extensions, or keep things natural, maintaining your style is crucial. At Fluff, we provide personalized advice on protecting your particular hair color and style, ensuring your hair stays fabulous between visits.
Embarking on a bespoke hair care journey with Fluff means embracing a routine that evolves with you and your hair. Our expert stylists are committed to guiding you on this hair care adventure, ensuring your locks are always on point.
Hi Fluff fans! So, I’ve been on a bit of a classic film kick lately. I find myself wondering if it’s just me or have you too wished you could bring back styles like Marilyn Monroe’s glamorous waves or sport Audrey Hepburn’s chic updo or even the hairdos worn by Doris Day’s fun blond characters? While I do love the hairstyles of today, I do sometimes miss the hairdos that were popular in tha past.
At Fluff, we’re here to help you channel your inner vintage diva. Let’s look at styles of the past and revisit the elegant hairstyles that defined entire decades, and how you can wear them today. Believe it or not, many of our talented artists can recreate these looks!
The Roaring 20s: Flapper Chic
When we think 1920s, we think flappers! These fashion-forward women chopped their locks into a short bob, a scandalously stylish statement. Today, the bob remains an embodiment of confidence and freedom.
The Fabulous 50s: Hollywood Glam
From Marilyn Monroe’s signature platinum blonde curls to Elizabeth Taylor’s soft waves, the 50s were all about Hollywood glam. These styles, effortlessly elegant yet bold, can still turn heads at any event.
The Groovy 70s: Disco Fever
The 70s were all about big hair and bold styles. Think Farrah Fawcett’s feathered waves and disco-inspired voluminous curls. With a modern twist, these styles can make a fun and flirty statement.
Bringing Vintage Styles to Life with Fluff Denver
Whether you’re a fan of the classy 50s or the groovy 70s, our stylists at Fluff Denver can help you reinterpret these vintage hairstyles for a fresh, modern look. From color to cut or just a blowdry and style, we’ve got you covered. Book your appointment today and add a touch of timeless elegance to your style!
Hi Fluff fans! Want bold, beautiful hair color that stands out in a crowd this summer? Sometimes looking far away from home is the best place to find new and unique styles that you won’t see here in Denver every day. If you happen to have plans to travel this summer, pay attention and you’ll notice that different countries and even regions within countries have very fun and different hair color trends.
I’m admittedly a bit of a hair nerd and enthusiast and nuances in hair is what I’m paying attention to wherever I happen to travel (and even when I’m right here at homeI can be found researching hair trends and color and extensions techniques!). If you’d like to take a quick trip with me, we can explore some hair styles that are trending worldwide, I’ve been doing some research so I thought I’d write about the fun color trends that I’m seeing abroad today!
Brazil’s Bright and Bold Streaks
In Brazil, it seems to be all about making a statement with bright, bold streaks. I haven’t been to Brazil for a few years now, but if you’re planning to go, it’s a truly great place to visit to witness some very cool hair and fashion (and even plastic surgery!) trends first-hand. Know the bold streaks that I’m talking about? If not, check it out on Google… and Brazil has it’s own style of balayage as well and I’ve seen some fun trends at the moment in Brazil where women are bringing back the 90’s trend of bold face framing highlights.
If you wanted to do something a little different, you too could rock some daring streaks with our team of experienced colorists. Bring us a photo and we’ll sit down and discuss how to go from your current color to the color in the photo. During your consultation we can put together a plan to make it happen!
Japan’s Pastel Wonderland
From what I’m seeing, in Japan pastel hair shades are all the rage. At Fluff, we can help you achieve this sweet and dreamy look with our expert coloring techniques. Don’t know exactly the look you’re wanting? During your consultation we’re happy to help you choose!
Australia’s Beachy Balayage
Down under in Australia, sun-kissed balayage trends rule. Our expert team at Fluff are masters at creating the perfect balayage, giving you that natural, beachy look. My personal favorite, as my speciality is lived-in luxury hair and color.
Scandinavia’s Ice Blonde
Up North in Scandinavia where I visit every year or two since I have friends and family in Copenhagen, ice blonde dominates. With Fluff’s expertise in blonde hair coloring, we can help you achieve ice blonde and the latest Scandinavian looks. I love sitting and admiring the effortless nature of the hairstyles and trendy fashion as everyone rides by me on their bicycle, sitting outside in a cozy cafe!
Inspired to try a new hair color trend from around the world? Well, enjoy your travels this summer and let us know what you loved about the styles abroad when you get back… and we’d love to hear about your trip! At Fluff, we’re ready to transform your hair with vibrant Alter Ego Italy colors. Book your appointment today and start your own global hair color adventure!
Summer Hair Care: How to Protect Your Hair from Sun, Salt, and Chlorine
Summer is a time of sunshine, beach trips, and pool parties. But with all that fun comes a bit of a downside for your luscious locks. The sun’s rays, salt water, and pool chlorine can all play havoc with your hair, leaving it dry, damaged, and dull. But don’t fret, Fluff Denver has got your back, or rather, your hair!
Block Out the Sun
Believe it or not, your hair needs SPF protection, maybe even more than your skin does. Continuous exposure to the sun can lead to dryness, breakage, and color fading. Consider wearing a hat or scarf to physically shield your hair from the sun. For added protection, we recommend products like Alter Ego Italy’s Urban Proof line of products, which helps contains pollution protectants and protectants from UV rays that are made specifically for your hair! I’ll mention here that even though I’m fair skinned, I now personally have thrown all of my sunscreen away and I’m embracing sun exposure in its purest form, just in smaller quantities. Vitamin D anyone? I hear it’s good for you… Who knew?
I’ve just returned from a beachside business trip and while I can tell you beach days can be a blast, saltwater can definitely strip moisture from your hair. Before hitting the beach, dampen your hair and apply a good leave-in conditioner. This will create a barrier against the saltwater, helping to preserve your hair’s natural oils. Rinsing your hair immediately after your swim can also help limit the damage… And I’d recommend against going on Twitter today as I witnessed someone getting eaten by a shark near a crowded beach in Egypt I think it was, as filmed from someone on the beach. I may be permanently planning for saltwater survival by staying out of the water! Only partially kidding!
Who doesn’t love a good swim? But prolonged exposure to chlorinated water can be harsh on your hair… unless you’re going for green mermaid hair, but that’s another topic for another post. One quick tip is to rinse your hair before and after a swim to help minimize chlorine absorption. For those who frequent the pool, consider getting a professional in-salon treatment at Fluff Denver, which helps to counteract chlorine damage and keep your hair looking its best.
Embrace the Summer Vibe
Finally, remember to enjoy the summer season! A little bit of hair care preparation and after-care can help you make the most of these sun-soaked months, keeping your hair gorgeous and healthy all summer long. Drop by Fluff Denver and let us help you make this a summer of hair love!

Famous Movie Hairdos: How They Shaped Character Personalities and Trends
Hi Fluff fans! So, I was watching a movie last night with my mom and I caught myself (as usual) noticing the details in the hair on the actors in the film, especially since it happened to be a classic film that we were watching. I quickly became intrigued with the hair that they had created and began noticing how it enhanced the characters and in my opinion, the entire movie. I’m guessing I’m not alone and we have all been entranced by the mesmerizing hairstyles in our favorite movies. So… Long story longer, I woke up early this morning thinking I should write about most iconic movie hairdos that have not only shaped characters but also our own hair trends!
Princess Leia’s Cinnamon Buns: Star Wars
First off, it’s impossible to ignore Princess Leia’s legendary cinnamon bun hairstyle in Star Wars. While saving the galaxy and being a general badass, she also managed to make a bold fashion statement. This unique hairstyle screams confidence and originality, just like Leia herself. And hey, who knows, maybe it’s also a secret weapon against Stormtroopers?
Uma Thurman’s Sleek Bob: Pulp Fiction
Another iconic hairstyle that stood out to me was Uma Thurman’s super sleek bob in Pulp Fiction. This look is as sharp and edgy as Mia Wallace herself, proving that simplicity can also make a strong impact. It’s no wonder that this hairstyle became a trendsetter in the 90s, inspiring countless women to chop their locks and opt for this chic look. I think I have an awkward photo of me rocking a similar look when I was in beauty school!
Audrey Hepburn’s Updo: Breakfast at Tiffany’s
And of course, we can’t leave out the queen of elegance herself – Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. That classy updo crowned with a tiara is pure sophistication. It’s a look that’s transcended time, making it a classic choice for fancy soirees and, oh you know, breakfasts at Tiffany’s.
Jennifer Aniston’s Layered Shag: Along Came Polly
Remember Jennifer Aniston’s layered shag in Along Came Polly? Yes, the one that had everyone rushing to their hairstylist asking for ‘The Polly’. This textured, face-framing hairstyle had us all swooning. It’s the perfect blend of effortless and stylish, just like Aniston’s character Polly Prince. And the best part? It’s totally wearable for everyday life. No wonder it was such a big hair trend hit back in the day!
Halle Berry’s Pixie Cut: Die Another Day
Next, let’s talk about Halle Berry’s fierce pixie cut in Die Another Day. Berry’s character, Jinx Johnson, isn’t just a super-spy — she’s a fashion icon too! This short, choppy hairstyle made a powerful statement, showing off Berry’s striking features and echoing her character’s strength and independence. This pixie cut is proof that short hair can be just as glamorous and sexy as long locks. Plus, it’s a fab choice for those who like low-maintenance hairdos with high-impact style.
These iconic movie hairdos are not just about looking fab (although they definitely do that!). They tell a story about the characters who wear them and sometimes, they even inspire us to experiment with our own style. Whether it’s going for a bold new color or trying out a new updo, at Fluff Denver Salon, we’re all about helping you express your inner movie star. So, come on in, and let’s create your own iconic look!
The Art and Science of Hair: Fascinating Hair Facts
Ever thought about just how marvelous your mane is? Today I’ve decided to keep it light and fun and have done some research for our Fluff fans so together let’s discover some facts that will give you a newfound appreciation for those strands atop your head!
Hair is a Reflection of Your Health and Lifestyle
Your hair can actually serve as a historical record of your nutrition and lifestyle habits. Lack of nutrients, stress, and exposure to environmental elements – they all leave their mark on your locks. That’s why healthy hair often starts with a healthy lifestyle. And remember, Fluff Denver Salon is here to help you keep those locks luscious! Maybe next time before eating that bag of Doritos watching a football game, you’ll think twice wondering what all of those nasty processed seed oils and GMO garbage might be doing to your hair on a molecular level!
How Fast Does Hair Really Grow?
Ever wondered how fast your hair grows? On average, human hair grows about half an inch per month (that’s how we calculate it as hair stylists!). But with the right care and a healthy diet, some people can boost their hair growth. But don’t get too carried away – hair won’t grow overnight, no matter how many hair masks you use! I do recommend high quality vitamins and eating a clean diet. Personally, I take a food based vitamin that’s intended for pre-natal use and often a hair, skin and nails vitamin and a liquid collagen supplement from a company called Spoiled Child! I think it even tastes really good.
More Hair than You Think
Think you’ve got a lot of hair? Consider this: the average human head has about 100,000 hair follicles. That’s a lot of hair to love, and a lot of hair to take care of. Thankfully, our professional stylists at Fluff are more than up for the challenge!
Now, for some fun! Did you know that the Guinness World Record for the longest hair belongs to a woman in China, whose hair measures a whopping 18 feet and 5.54 inches? We can’t promise to help you grow hair that long, but we can promise to keep your tresses looking terrific no matter their length! Can you imagine the split ends?
There’s a world of wonder in every strand of hair. Keep your hair looking its best with Fluff Denver Salon – your trusted partner in all things hair. Stay curious, stay beautiful, and remember: your hair is a masterpiece!

Hair Care in the Mile-High City: How Denver’s Altitude Affects Your Hair
Hey Denverites! Ever noticed your hair behaving a bit…oddly since moving to the Mile-High City? Feels a little dry? Struggling with static? That’s your locks adjusting to life at high altitude. Welcome to the wonderful world of mile-high hair! Let’s talk a little bit about the science of it all, as moving here from Los Angeles was definitely a bit of an adjustment for me and I’d love to share my experiences with my Fluff fans!
The Mile-High Hair Phenomenon
The thin, dry air of Denver can be tough on your hair, plain and simple. The lack of humidity can leave hair parched and prone to static. I’ve also noticed the water is different than LA’s finest (I prefer the water here at this point and I feel my hair even feels a little cleaner after shampoo and conditioner!). If you’re finding your hair to be a challenge in Denver, maybe you just need to get to know your new hair-needs and a consultation at Fluff is always a great place to start!
The Science of High Altitude Hair
At higher altitudes, the air is drier and there’s less pressure, which can leave your hair feeling parched and prone to static electricity. This can lead to hair damage, breakage, and a lackluster appearance.
High Altitude Heroes for Your Hair
The right products here I’ve found can make a huge difference and make your hair more beautiful and managable. I’d like to introduct you to high altitude hair care: the Alter Ego Italy Urban Proof line. These bad boys are like your personal hair bodyguards, protecting against environmental stress and keeping your locks luscious.
Embrace Your Mile-High Hair Journey
Living in Denver means embracing the ups and downs (mostly ups, let’s be honest) of life at high altitude. Your hair is just part of that journey! Treat it with a little extra care and it’ll stay as fabulous as the Denver skyline.
So go conquer that mile-high hair with confidence, whether your at the big Nuggets game tonight or enjoyed your Sunday out hiking. And remember, Fluff Denver Salon is always here to help you navigate the highs and lows of your hair journey.

Hair Care Tips for the Trail
Here’s how to keep your locks lovely, even after they’ve been through wind, sun, and high altitude:
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: Colorado air is dry, and your hair feels it too. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, such as our favorite, Alter Ego Italy’s Silk Oil line.
Shield from the Sun: UV rays can damage your hair. Protect it with a product that has UV protection, like the Alter Ego Italy Urban Proof line leave-in conditioner… And please do not put sunscreen directly in your hair, it’s not even worth taking the chance in contains ingredients that can devastate the hair and ruin your extensions.
Tangle No More: Use an oil spray before your hike to prevent knots and make post-hike brushing a breeze. We love the Urban Proof De-Lite Protection Oil from Alter Ego Italy. Keel it in your backpack for all day hair hydration and care. Even with glamorous hair extensions, you can use this oil, but use it on the mid-lengths and ends and not on the scalp.
With these styles and care tips, you’re all set for your next outdoor adventure. Stay fabulous on the trails, Denver!

As I’m eating my breakfast on the beach here in El Salvador, I’m wondering to myself if there anything more quintessentially summer than tousled, beachy waves? I actually don’t think so! From the beautiful sandy beaches of El Salvador to the bustling streets of Denver, this hairstyle is a hit. Here’s a step-by-step guide from Fluff to help you achieve that effortless, sun-kissed look with the help of our favorite Alter Ego Italy products.
Step 1: Cleanse and Prep
Start with clean, damp hair. We recommend using Urban Proof Rehab Shampoo – it gently cleanses while removing sea salt, chlorine, and sand residue. Plus, it’s packed with powerful antioxidants to protect your hair from environmental pollutants.
Step 2: Nourish and Protect
Next, apply Urban Proof Leave In Conditioner. Not only does this conditioner detangle and nourish your hair, but it also offers UV protection – a must-have for beach goers or those sun-soaked Denver summer days.
Step 3: Create Those Waves
Now, it’s time for the fun part – creating those waves! Spritz your damp hair with Urban Proof Sea Salt Spray from mid-length to the ends. It not only adds texture for those coveted beach waves but also shields your hair from UV rays and urban pollutants.
Step 4: Dry and Style
For natural waves, allow your hair to air dry. Alternatively, you can use a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer (hopefully from T3 Micro or Ga.Ma Italy for best results!) for added volume. Scrunch your hair as it dries to enhance the wavy texture. Remember, the idea is to look effortlessly chic, so don’t worry about perfection!
Step 5: Final Touch
Once your hair is dry, finish off with a few drops of Urban Proof De-Lite Protection Oil to add shine and further protect your hair from UV damage. Et voila! You now have gorgeous, beachy waves that can be worn from the beach to the city streets.
Perfecting beach waves might take a few tries, but with a little practice and the right products, you’ll be rocking this breezy style in no time. Remember, the key to beach waves is the effortless, undone look – so have fun with it! If your hair needs a little extra encoragment, we recommend using a diffuser and the Switch Kit Wave Trio from T3 Micro, available now at Fluff.
The Connection Between Diet and Hair Health: Nourishing Your Locks in Denver and Beyond
Hello, Fluff Family! As we’re savoring the delights of El Salvador on our travels working on our potential international expansion project, we’re reminded that what we eat directly reflects on our hair health. But fear not, all the essential nutrients your hair craves can be found right at home in Denver at your fav farmers markets and grocery stores.
Essential Nutrients for Luscious Locks
Protein, the building block of hair, is vital. Insufficient protein can result in weak or slow-growing hair. In Denver, enjoy a tender bison steak (if you eat meat) or quinoa salad for a protein boost.
Iron promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss. Incorporate spinach salads or lentils into your meals to ensure adequate iron intake.
Calcium, found in cheese, milk, and yogurt, promotes hair growth and is essential for healthy hair.
Colorado’s local farms offer fruits and vegetables packed with Vitamins A, C, and E – all hair-healthy vitamins. Vitamin A aids sebum production to moisturize the scalp, Vitamin C promotes collagen production for hair strength, and Vitamin E maintains your hair’s natural protective layer for a glossy shine.
Omega-3 fatty acids nourish the hair, support thickening, and reduce inflammation that can lead to hair loss. Colorado trout is a great source of Omega-3s!
Biotin, a B-vitamin, is commonly recommended for hair health. A deficiency of Biotin can lead to hair thinning. Enjoy locally sourced eggs, avocados, and nuts to keep your Biotin levels up.
At Fluff’s Denver Salon
Our philosophy at Fluff always emphasizes the holistic approach to hair health. Your hair deserves good nutrition, just like your body. So, when you’re indulging in Denver’s delicious local produce or dining out at your favorite spot, remember: you’re not just satisfying your cravings, you’re also feeding your fabulous mane.
And while we’re mentioning global flavors, if you ever find yourself in El Salvador, don’t forget the avocados! They’re an excellent hair-healthy food, rich in Biotin and Vitamin E.
Until next time, Fluff fam! Keep it shiny, keep it Fluffy and happy Fluffing!
