EILEEN | OWNER + MASTER STYLIST

Kantor & Company owner and master stylist Eileen Kantor has been working in a salon for long as she can remember. Literally. Eileen's mother ran a salon out of her childhood home. "It was just like the salon in the movie Steel Magnolias,"  she says. And despite an education in interior design, Kantor found her way back to what she feels is her true calling: styling.

 

Since 2003, Eileen has developed her skills, studying the art of cutting at the esteemed Vidal Sassoon salon in both Los Angeles and San Francisco, and color with Aveda and Wella. She also worked at two of Boulder's top-rated salons, Pompadours and Twig, before opening Kantor & Company in 2017. 

Eileen’s business model focuses on detailed consultations with every client so she can understand their specific hair type, maintenance goals, and desired look. While the cut is the foundation from which she builds each client's look, color is the complement. Eileen works with each of her clients to find the hair cut and color that will best empower her client's expression of their personal style. She matches color to skin tone and eye color with precision, which helps her achieve the exact result she is after. 

 

In addition to  Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Wella, Eileen has studied with experts at American Crew, Redken, Schwartzkopf, Tony and Guy, Pravana. For more than ten years, she has been an educator, training junior stylists and helping them perfect their craft. Whether you're looking for a classic cut and natural color, an edgy, off the runway look, or something in between, Eileen can't wait to see you in her chair for a consult, and to ultimately help you walk out of Kantor & Company with the hair of your dreams.
