Stylist + Makeup Artist
The Parlour LoDo
Denise Serafini Gillespie – The Parlour General Manager
When I started doing hair: 2007
When I started at The Parlour: 2009
What inspires/motivates me in the industry:
I find a lot of my inspiration exploring through books, magazines and social media. Trends are always constantly changing and evolving so that drives my motivation to always be at the top of my game when it comes to education.
What I am happiest doing:
I am happiest when I am with my family and most of all, with my new sweet baby boy Landon I welcomed in February. He inspires me to want to be the best I possibly can throughout all aspects of life so that has really pushed me in the salon to grow even further.
Additional industry involvement:
I am a member of the Design Team where we get to be the most creative, which is definitely a huge passion of mine. I love the creativity and drive from our team through each show we put on and it always inspires me when I get back behind the chair at the salon. Photo shoots are also something I love to be a part of. I am also on the Wedding Team, so that is more of an elegant and romantic feel of design that I enjoy. Makeup is one of the things I love to be able to do whether it be for a hair show, photo shoot, wedding or simply just a night out on the town.
What I love most about The Parlour:
I love the continued desire and passion we all share to learn. The opportunity that we all have to be educated on a consistent basis by some of the most talented people in our industry is really remarkable and I feel so fortunate to have that offered through our salon on a daily basis. Not to mention we are just one huge family!
What else you should know about me:
I want people to know that I offer many services here at The Parlour besides just haircuts and color. Waxing services, Shavasanna Eyelash Extensions, eyebrow and eyelash tints, perms and chemical relaxers, ULTRATRESS Hair Extensions, feather extensions, makeup applications and wedding hair are all of the other fun and awesome things I love to do!
