We had the good fortune of connecting with Mick Lewis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mick, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I honestly never really wanted to open my Own salon… I enjoy creating behind the chair so much that I thought owning a salon would take away from that. I decided to open a salon when I found that there wasn’t a salon that fit me in the Denver area. I take my craft very seriously and abs always trying to raise the bar. I wanted to work with a group of people who felt the same way. I learned that the only way I was going to get that… was if I built it. 

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My path certainly hasn’t been easy. To truly master an art… you really do have to practice that art for thousands of hours. I am still learning everyday. I think that is what sets our salon apart from others… everyone we have hired are hungry to be the best. They love continuing education and always trying to raise the bar in our industry. We are a small team… but a very powerful one. Every person in the world deserves to feel beautiful… and I am proud to say that when clients leave Craft Collective… they feel drop dead gorgeous.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I take all of our visitors to Dos Santos for tacos… they are the best! I would Probably take them on a hike abs hit up a brewery after. Everyone loves coffee… so Would for sure stop by Amethyst Coffee In the York St Yards. Evening drinks at Death and Co. Dinner at Hop Alley. Be have so many great places in Denver!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband was a huge roll and continues to be a key player in the success of the salon. He is my biggest cheerleader… so having him on my team has been invaluable!
