Employee spotlight of the week: Brandi 
-
Brandi began her career at J. Gregory Salon in Colorado Springs in 2012. Here she learned a variety of different skills and techniques as it relates to hair styling and coloring. She left J. Gregory Salon after an allergy to the hair color and other chemicals took a turn for the worse. She has always wanted to open a salon and her allergy wasn’t going to stop her.

She traveled to Los Angeles to study airbrush makeup. It was then that she found a passion for makeup and it’s ability to enhance an individual. She has since then worked on hundreds of brides and began to focus on makeup and hair styling for special occasions.

She opened Blush Dry Bar Salon in 2018 where she and her staff focus on blowouts, makeup, eyelash extensions, and hair extensions. Brandi’s goal is to use her talent to educate, empower, and enable women to look and feel like the best version of themselves not only on their wedding day, but everyday. We are SO thankful to have an owner/boss like Brandi!
Finishing touches are 🗝
Are you ready for wedding season?! Whether it’s bridal hair, makeup for the whole crew, lash extensions, or a wax, we always excited to help brides get ready for their special day!

Employee spotlight of the week: Brittne
-
Brittne started with Blush in 2020, but she immediately fit right in! We hired Brittne right after she moved to Colorado from Texas. Brittne’s love for cosmetology started when she was 15. After years of practicing on her sister/friends and having her own makeup YouTube Channel, Brittne eventually started her own business doing face and body painting, SFX, special event makeup, and bridal makeup. Brittne’s favorite part about the industry is the opportunity to enhance women’s natural beauty and features. When Brittne is not working on our Bridal Team, she is spending time with her 3 kids and wonderful husband. Brittne is so talented and we can’t wait for you to experience her work!
Our salon will quickly become your happy place!

YOU'RE MAKING US BLUSH

If I could leave a 5+ Star review, I would! Brandi was such a blessing to me during the planning of my destination wedding in Colorado. She was flexible with my trial date/time and was perfect on the wedding day. I was beyond happy with my hair and make-up and everyone else was too – both mothers and all bridesmaids had at least hair or make-up done (some both). Everyone looked beautiful but natural, just what we told her we wanted. It was amazing how she was able to look at my pinterest pictures and make it work with my skin/hair. She was also able to fill in my lashes which was a huge help since I had to get them done in Nashville a week before the wedding. I can’t say enough good things about Blush Salon – I would recommend them to any bride!

I was fortunate enough to have a friend recommend Brandi Martinez to do my hair and makeup for my wedding at the Broadmoor this past February. I live out of state, so we coordinated a trial in August when I was home for a visit, and Brandi was wonderful. She took the time to try several different looks to make sure I felt comfortable with the end result, and photo documented everything to ensure we were able to recreate it again in February. She was so fantastic I booked she and Shyre for our entire bridal party. A true professional from start to finish, Brandi and Shyre were prompt, prepared and lightning quick while making sure everyone felt attended to. Engaging and attentive the entire 6 hours they were with us at the hotel, I cannot say enough about the caliber of service you receive. The best part, all hair and makeup had staying power, photographed beautifully and required minimal touch up long into the wee hours. I feel the old adage that you get what you are willing to pay for is oftentimes true, but in this case, you get MORE. Do yourself a favor and move “finding glam squad” into the finished column of your to do list, and book Blush Salon and Brandi today.

Brandi Martinez is not only a gifted stylist and makeup artist, but she is a lovely person! She did hair and makeup for our daughter’s wedding and transformed us into something more than beautiful! We had so much fun with her! It’s always great to find someone who fully enjoys what they do, and is an expert at their work. We give Brandi 5 stars and encourage you to look no further for your stylist and makeup artist. Thanks for your expertise and a great time, Brandi! (Note: The airbrush application is so relaxing! It’s better than a great massage. Perfect for a hectic wedding day!)

Brandi was so amazing with my bridal party. She and her team did the hair and makeup, and eyelash extensions for me and my bridesmaids. They had great recommendations on how to have our hair, and we looked wonderful!
