WHAT IS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR?

Independent contractors provide goods or services according to the terms of a contract they have negotiated with an employer. Independent contractors are not employees. A salon may hire a stylist as an independent contractor. Cosmetologists and barbers who choose to work as independent contractors are responsible for paying for their own overhead costs associated with their business, making their own hours, and managing their own appointments. All of the stylists at Cherry Creek Barbershop & Salon are Independent Contractors.

WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU CARRY?

All of the products offered at Cherry Creek Barbershop & Salon are Cruelty-Free, with Vegan-Friendly options. We carry Leaf + Flower, K18, Ethica Beauty, Highland Style Co., Hank Skincare, Mr. Red Fox of London, Curl Cult, and Hairstory.

SHOULD I CHOOSE THE "SHORT HAIRCUT" OR THE "LONG HAIRCUT"?

All of our haircuts are based on the current length of your hair.

Choose the "Short Haircut" if your hair is currently shorter than your chin.

Choose the "Long Haircut" if your hair is currently longer than your chin, if it has been more than three months (90 days) since you have received a haircut, or if you are unsure of what style you would like to receive. 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COSMETOLOGIST AND A BARBER?

The biggest difference is that barbering is strictly focused on hair, whereas cosmetology focuses on hair, skin, nails and more. Barbers can provide straight razor shaves on the face, while Cosmetologists can perform waxing services. They are both trained in haircutting, hair coloring and proper sanitation.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIGHLIGHTS AND A BALAYAGE?

The biggest difference between a balayage and highlights is that a balayage is hand painted onto the hair in strategic patterns to create a natural, sunkissed look; whereas highlights are applied to hair that is sectioned using weaving and slicing techniques before being placed into foils to promote maximum lift, creating a much brighter tone throughout the hair. A Foilyage is a combination of a balayage and highlights.

WHAT IF I JUST WANT A BEARD TRIM?

Schedule the "Beard | Shape & Shave", even if you only want a beard trim. The straight razor line-up is an optional part of the service. The price remains the same with or without the straight razor line-up.

WHAT IF I DO NOT WANT TO RECEIVE A SHAMPOO WITH MY HAIRCUT?

Shampoos are an optional part of the haircut service, as long as you arrive with clean hair that has been washed the same day as your appointment. The price remains the same with or without the shampoo. You will receive a shampoo with every color service.

WHAT IF I DO NOT WANT TO RECEIVE A BLOW DRY STYLE?

Blow dry styles are an optional part of the haircut service. The price remains the same with or without the blow dry style. You will receive a blow dry style with every color service.

DO YOU DO KID'S HAIRCUTS?

Yes, we do kid's haircuts.

You will choose between either the "Short Haircut", or the "Long Haircut", depending on the current length of the kid's hair. If their hair is shorter than their chin, choose the "Short Haircut". If their hair is longer than their chin, if it has been more than six months since they have received a haircut, or if they are unsure of what style they want choose the "Long Haircut". 

We do not offer special pricing for children. 

DO YOU PERFORM WAXING SERVICES?

Yes, we offer the "Wax Package". For this service you can receive up to three waxing services during one session from the following menu: Eyebrow Wax, Nose Wax, Ear Wax, Lip Wax, Sideburn Wax, Neck Wax, Chin Wax or Cheek Wax. The price will remain the same, even If you wish to receive only one waxing service during the session. We do not wax below the neck. We have phased out our individual waxing services, because our waxing specialist is transitioning her focus to laser hair removal.

HOW DID YOU START?

After many years of working in the beauty industry Heather Sherman decided to start her own business as a booth renter in 2016, where she was able to continue building her clientele and lay the foundation for Cherry Creek Barbershop. In 2017 Heather moved into a salon in Cherry Creek North where she was able to open up the first barbershop in Cherry Creek, Cherry Creek Barbershop. Cherry Creek Barbershop flourished for three years. Then, an unexpected turn of events happened in May of 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic forced salons to close their doors for a little over two months. During this time the owner of the building that Cherry Creek Barbershop was renting space in decided to sell the building to a dispensary. When salons were able to re-open Heather teamed up with local barbershops where she was able to advance her skills, as well as share her knowledge and experience in cosmetology, barbering, sales and marketing. During this time Heather kept the website for Cherry Creek Barbershop active to help attract new clients to the new businesses. It was a great experience to be a part of the start-up process and to watch these businesses grow. But, after every accomplishment Heather would feel the pull to continue building Cherry Creek Barbershop. After some encouragement from co-workers and family members, Heather decided to take the leap again in April of 2021 and moved into a shared suite at Sola Salons. It was at this time that Heather decided to rebrand to Cherry Creek Barbershop & Salon to welcome a more diverse client base to match her dual licensing as a cosmetologist and a barber. She moved into a brand new, corner office in August of 2022. The new space is located in the heart of Cherry Creek and offers free parking with private bookings in a double studio with large windows overlooking the Cherry Creek Mall and parts of the Rocky Mountains. Heather is in the process of making her dreams come true as she continues to pursue her passion of creating haircut and color transformations for individuals from all walks of life.
