Stylist: Erik Emblen
Note that this is the salon formerly known as Mikael Padilla Salon under new ownership. Erik is still based out of this location but his personal business is called Curl Culture (website curlculturedenver.com) if you want to search on other sites for reviews. I found Erik on this website over 4 years ago when I moved to Colorado when he worked out of a salon on the other side of town and only cut hair one day a week. Since then, he's continued his Deva curly hair education and his clientele has blown up so much he's doing curly hair full time every day of the week. He's always professional, friendly, and informative about his methods. I'm always pleased with my cut and style; he listens to my preferences and delivers the cut that fits my needs. He personally manages his scheduling and I like being able to contact him directly to set or change appointments. I've sent other curly friends to him and they all had good experiences as well. I've never colored my hair so I can't comment on his skill in that area but I know he offers the service.
