Cindy Folger


        Cindy started her career after graduating from Michael Taylor Institute of Hair Design in 1991.  She excelled as a hairstylist at Michael of the Carlyle. Her love for Cosmetology grew when furthering her education as a trainer/educator at Michael of the Carlyle.  She continued her journey as a master hair designer, nail technician, and educator. After having three beautiful children to raise, she needed a flexible schedule and transitioned her attention as a full cosmetologist at Salon Deroge in Littleton, Colorado for 20 years.  After meeting and learning from some of the most amazing hair designers and educators at Salon Deroge, she realized that there was something missing. The ultimate reward: owning her own salon! Thus, she opened Serenity Salon. As the growth of her new salon progressed, Cindy commuted down to Littleton as well.  Finally, she knew it was time to make the decision to solely concentrate on her priority: Serenity Salon in Bailey.  Cindy has resided in Bailey, Colorado for 28 years and could not be more proud of her hometown and community! The people of Bailey are her family, and she will immensely treasure her involvement with them!  Cindy has been the owner/founder of Serenity Salon for 11 years. As a successful thriving salon owner, Cindy continues to further her passion in the beauty industry working with the thing that makes her most happy: HER CLIENTS!

Gail Bartoletta


        Hiya, I'm Gail, formally trained hairdresser/barber since 1983 from Manchester, England. My mum said "I never had a dolly with hair for very long..." so it was the path I followed. In England I was the proud owner of 2 salons and I regulated hairdressers that were training students in-house for Start Training Adult Educational Programs. Then I moved to Colorado in 2000 and went to work for Antoine Du Chez .. within a year I was part of their Photographic Team and was lucky enough to cut and color the models chosen to be displayed in their salons. I went on to give classes in the techniques used. After owning my own school and many life changes I'm now offering my services now here in Bailey. I look forward to meeting you.
