About Us

My name is Mamie Oleta Maunz.  I was born and raised in Crested Butte. I spent three years at Western State College studying Fine Arts and then decided to attend Cosmetology School in Denver at Xenon International Academy. I  graduated in 2011 and found employment at the beautiful Tala Salon and Spa in Denver, Co. for the first year of my career as a hairstylist. After that, I relocated back  to Crested Butte, where I’ve worked ever since.
 
 Living in a beautiful mountain town is a privilege but can be very isolating, especially in any fashion industry, such as hairstyling. For that reason, continuing education is very important and also fun. I’ve attended Aveda Color Theory classes in Grand Junction and Goldwell Color Education classes in Denver.  Bridal Hairstyling and product education has been provided by Kevin Murphy Professional Hairstyling, here in Crested Butte.
 
I’m so excited to establish myself as a business owner and new mother to my toddler Winsloh, in this community where both of my parents owned their businesses, as a fourth generation Crested Butte local!
