Hello, my family and I are thinking about a move to the Fort Collins/ Loveland area. I am a hairstylist and was wondering what the best salons and spas are in the area . I currently booth rent in Nebraska, I was curious as to the average cost of monthly booth rent. Are there any J Beverly Hills salons in this area? I take my career seriously and absolutely love what I do, I am looking for a Salon where i can continue to grow as an artist and work around other professionals that believe in continuing education and use high quality products... Any advice would be appreciated thank you!

Hopefully someone here will be familiar with salons and spas in this area. But you might want to do some research yourself, at least to get started. You could get on Google Maps, and search on "Fort Collins salons" and "Fort Collins spas". Repeat for Loveland and maybe Windsor as well. That will give you the names and locations of specific businesses in this area. There may also be customer reviews and links to business websites (with more detailed information, and maybe rates).

Once you have a list of the businesses, you might also check Yelp (I think that's the site). That also has customer ratings, feedback, and maybe some business information. That might give you a better big picture than what one or two people might say, since they might only be familiar with one or two businesses.

It's enormously important to keep in mind cost of living. Even if the business atmosphere looks good here, this area could be quite expensive compared to where you are now. You might need to earn quite a bit more than where you are now, and there's a ton of competition for jobs here. I've been at it several years, and don't think it's worth the hassle, and don't find that the hype justifies it at all. The area too seems more "northern" than "midwest" (especially in FC). Nearly everyone I've met and worked with has moved here from the north, and they tend to have a different attitude and mindset. Nothing wrong with it per se; just that it can be hard connecting with others at times. Kind of a cold, distant approach, with walls being put up. Some seem downright snooty too. There have been a few times that I've said a casual and friendly "Hi" or "Hello" in passing, just to be neighborly - as I am used to - and they've said nothing (some have even avoided eye contact). Completely weird and rude...

Good luck though!
