More About Alyssa...
A stylist since 2007, I do what I love and love what I do. Hair color is my specialty and I especially enjoy fashion colors and bayalage. I am always looking for opportunities to further my education. When I’m not in the salon you can find me in nature. I love the outdoors - camping, fishing, four-wheeling, swimming - as well as baseball and football. Go Broncos! Much of my free time is spent with my two very athletic kids. I also enjoy baking and cooking.

More About Lyndi...

A stylist and aesthetician since 2005, I’ve been at DaLee Salon & Spa since 2011. I went to beauty school in Fort Collins, CO and fell in love with the art of hair and the relationships that are built between stylist and client. If you were to ask me my favorite thing to do it would be all about the long hair and blondes. I love a good dry cut, paired with a fresh set of new highlights. I love keeping up with continuing education. The beauty industry is always changing, and I want to make sure that my skills evolve with it as well. My favorite part of my job would be the relationships that I get to form throughout the years. Clients turn into friends and family. I am educated and have received personalized training in South Seas tanning products and airbrush techniques. I’m also educated in L'Anza and Pravana Color lines and haircutting/styling techniques. L'Anza is my primary color line and I offer services for the whole family!
