Salon Professional Info

Why Vault? Hello Friends! I’m Vanessa and I’ve been in the wonderful business of beautifying for almost 30 years! I have worked in several salons and cosmetic companies over the years, in several states; Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, California, and Colorado. I am constantly training, educating myself, and learning all of the newest techniques to bring out your best. I’ve been in Colorado for about 20 years and I decided to start my own place in 2017. I was fortunate enough to have my friend Riki, who I’ve been working with for over 10 years, come with me to our place; Vault Five18. So why Vault Five18? What does it mean? I pondered a name for quite a while. Salon, suite, studio, hair place.......nothing felt quite right.......until I stumbled upon the word Vault. It was nice that it started with a “V” like Vanessa, but there’s much more to it. I think of my clients as friends, if they didn't start off that way, they eventually become a friend. :) I love sharing my space with my “friends”. A Vault is where you keep valuables, things that are important to you, things you cherish and want to keep safe. I want all of my friends to feel safe in our salon. Five18 is my birthday, I figured it was a good number to choose since my birthday will never change. So there it is, and here we are. Welcome friends, to a place where you can be your best self!
