A Premium Day Spa & Salon
I originally started in the industry in 1991 as a manicurist. After falling even more in love with the industry, I decided that my compassion and connection with my clients was so strong that I wanted to grow my expertise to completely serve how my clients looked from head to toe. I now am an experienced color specialist with over 24 years of hair cutting and color techniques. I have sought out and trained with world renowned companies such as Vidal Sasson, Redken NYC, Rusk, Pureology, and Surface. Since my training, I continue to travel and educate myself to stay current and consistent with all style trends.
I am passionate about all things hair, but my true love, highest knowledge level and expertise falls under hair coloring. When it comes to beautiful hair coloring, I have an eye for the color and balance of tone that will surely give your hair lots of shine and shimmer. Add all that to a luxurious attentive service, and you will understand why “Looking good means feeling good!”
So whenever your hair is looking for some TLC, rejuvenation, nourishing care or reconstruction, it’s Bangs! to the rescue!

A Little About Me:
As a born and raised Salida local, I’ve been a part of the community my entire life and absolutely love living here. I have been married for 15 years and a mother of two. The only thing better than living here is working as a Cosmetologist at Bangs! Salon. The atmosphere is incredible and my clients are some of the best people I’ve ever met.
I've always had a passion for hair and knew that it would be something I would love doing. I started out my educational career at Artistic Beauty College in Arvada, CO. After completing college, I moved back to Salida and have been working with Janine for over 7 years. I've been licensed as a Professional Cosmetologist for over 10 years now. Although I work full time at Bangs!, I still further my education by taking classes with Pureology, Redken NYC, and Surface. These classes keep me up-to-date with the latest trends on haircutting and new styles. I also attend annual hair shows and product knowledge classes to know what is best for individualized hair types.
I specialize in men’s haircutting, but I enjoy providing all the hair services I offer for both men and women. I am grateful to all of my clients and so glad I can do what I love doing.
Here at Bangs!, we believe “Looking good means feeling good!”. Whenever you need an update on your hair style, remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the hands of your stylist. My job is to make you and your hair shine!
My name is Colleen Thompson. I’ve been specializing in nail care since 2000. I dabbled in artificial nails for several years, both acrylic and gel, but found my love for natural nail care and hit the ground running in 2009. For over a decade I have now been working this industry and my passion only grows for what I do! I have always been eager to learn and love continuing education. I take all the classes I can to keep up on “what’s new” in the nail world, so I can help you keep your nails healthy and looking great!
My family is important to me, so I try to keep a good balance between work and home. Anyone who knows me knows I love to cook and bake and I do it as often as I can! We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and we love to get out and enjoy it as often as we can.
I’ve been in the Salida / Buena Vista area doing nail services for 9 years now. In the summer of 2015, I joined the Bangs! Salon team. It was a change I was ready for and I love the decision I made. I was voted Salida’s Best Nail Tech in 2012 and 2014. I love what I do and I love the people I do it with! We have an amazing team at Bangs! Salon, so come in and experience us and leave knowing that “Looking Good Means Feeling Good!”
