Shannon Thaxton

Licensed Esthetician
Phone: 719-623-4454

Shannon Thaxton is The Hairless Hippie. She is a Licensed Esthetician in both Colorado and Nebraska, specializing in full facial and body speed waxing. She received her education in Esthetics at Emily Griffith Technical College in Denver, CO in 2017, with the initial goal to pursue skincare exclusively. While she loved skincare and all that it entailed, the world of waxing pulled her in. The instant gratification waxing offers superseded the results she was seeing with skincare, and she soon realized the skincare aspect was still highly prevalent when it came to waxing, thus the passion was born.

Shannon honed her waxing skills at some of the top spas in Denver and Omaha until she became a specialist in her craft. Not only does she specialize in waxing itself, but also in connecting with her clients and making them feel at home, even in the most vulnerable states. She prides herself on building long-lasting relationships with her clients, to the point that waxing is just something that happens while she’s catching up on their lives.

Self-care is dominating the world these days and rightfully so, and Shannon is a huge advocate for it. She believes that waxing isn’t just a luxury, but a necessity, and can help you feel your most confident and beautiful, hence loving and caring for yourself on a monthly basis. Because of this, she offers 50% off your first wax, 10% off pre-booked appointments, and referral and military discounts as well.

Shannon is a Colorado native but called Omaha, NE home for a short time while her fiance was stationed there with the Air Force. They became first-time homeowners when they moved back to Colorado, and enjoy ever-evolving home projects, movie marathons, wedding planning, and training their new puppy, Norman.

Elle hails from Salt Lake City and moved to Colorado two years ago.

Her passion is blonding and dimensional color, and nature inspires her work. Elle loves editorial photo shoots, and she knows how fashion repeats itself: “I love mixing and matching old and new trends for a funky, fresh new look. “When she’s not behind the chair, Elle can be found camping, hiking, cycling, painting, crocheting, doing yoga, cooking, or making jewelry. Her mantra? “Contemplate, Collaborate, Create.”

Morgan Lynn

Phone: 719-313-1010

Morgan is a true native to Colorado Springs. She attended three schools in District 49, few people can attest to that! While in school she excelled in art, especially painting.

Her passion for painting lead her to attend cosmetology school. Morgan attended Paul Mitchell, the School, and quickly fell in love with coloring hair. “Instead of painting on canvas, I now get to paint people’s hair all day and turn them into my living masterpieces,” she explains. Morgan has developed a keen eye for color and loves when her clients give her creative freedom. “Having the ability to completely customize a new look for someone is amazing. Not every color or cut works on everyone, and that’s okay. After a proper consultation about lifestyle, and hair goals I can start working on your one of a kind look,” she says.

In addition to color Morgan also specializes in formal styling. “Getting to be a key part of someone’s special event is the best feeling. Having them look in the mirror and feel beautiful is the most rewarding feeling,” she tells us.

Morgan’s goal with each of her clients is to make them feel confident. If a personalized style and a vote of confidence are what you’re looking for, then schedule an appointment with Morgan today!
