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!

Vanessa Sholes


      Hello, I am Vanessa Sholes. I have always had a passion for doing hair. I started my hair designing with Paul Mitchell Education in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.  After a few years, I moved to Tampa Florida where I spent the last 12 years in the beauty industry, not only working in the salon creating beautiful hair for men, women, and children but also at special events and weddings.  In the summer of 2018, my family and I moved to Bailey, Colorado, and are excited to explore this beautiful area. Please come see me and see what kind of fun new look we can create for you!


Jessie Nichols


        Hello, my name is Jessica. I have been a licensed cosmetologist for nearly 15 years. I'm native to Conifer and am happy to be living back home after spending six years working as a stylist in San Diego. I have two beautiful children who light up my world. We enjoy being creative and spending time outdoors. My favorite thing about doing hair is utilizing my artistic ability to help my clients express themselves and the joy it brings them. I love doing color and creating transformations. I'm so grateful for the community we live in and getting to be part of the Serenity team!


        I'm Jerri Rayburn, and have been a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Colorado since 1986. The skincare side of beauty has always interested me, so I decided to act on that passion. My focus is a natural approach. Beauty comes from within! I have received advanced training through Eminence Organic Skincare, and Hungarian facial massage. In addition to skincare, I am trained in eyelash extensions, and offer this service as well!

Massage Therapist

        Hi my name is Ryan. I was raised in the Midwest and graduated from an Aveda Institute in 2020 as a Licensed Massage Therapist. Living in Colorado has always been my dream and life has recently allowed my girlfriend and I to pursue it. We are thrilled that we can hike, camp, ride motorcycles, and enjoy the mountains now as we call it home. The next level of training I received at school from the different professionals, and experience that I have gained so far working has brought me to this beautiful salon. My knowledge and skills within Swedish massage, myofascial, deep tissue, sports medicine, and other modalities allows me to better suit your needs. Whether you’re looking to just relax, or work out some tightness and increase your mobility, look no further. I’m blessed to be a part of Serenity Salon and I look forward to meeting you.
