to Get You Up and Running
Welcome! Each week we highlight one of our fabulous salon professionals and her unique business.
Today meet Betsy Horowitz, Curly Hair Specialist and Owner of Illume Studio in our Suite 101! Betsy specializes in contemporary cuts and color for multi-cultural, natural hair textures of all types.
PWD: What do you love about your unique business?
BH: I love offering a calm space and experience that is beautiful, uplifting, and nurturing of change. I am a
“no-fuss” stylist who combines practicality with care and attention. I listen to my clients, pay attention to their needs and help them find solutions. I work with them to develop, what I think of as a personal hair journey, that compliments their identity and lifestyle.
I love building trust with my clients and embarking on their hair journey together.
PWD: Why do you do what you do?
BH: I found with hairstyling, the love of connecting my body and my heart through a tactile craft. Working with my hands in a way that gives to people, soothes and grounds me, and is just a total pleasure!
I started my education with Vidal Sassoon 13 years ago. Inspired, I dove into an extensive and rigorous program with Euphora that promised me employment in my choice of high-end salons. Though my career path was solid, I started feeling dizzy from the hype and exclusivity so much of the beauty industry is built on. I couldn’t understand why feeling beautiful should be so unattainable and mysterious. I wanted to simplify what I had learned and focus on celebrating the natural beauty we all have and deserve. Following my heart and intuition, I started training with a curly hair specialist and discovered my true passion for styling natural hair. My private studio now focuses on working with multi-cultural, natural hair textures of all types, from straight to wavy to curly.
PWD: What do you love about working at Phenix West Denver?
BH: I love working in a calm, uplifting and lovely space that supports my creativity. My talented community offers authentic care and kindness. I love the people and atmosphere at Phenix.

-Will my clients follow me & is this location easy to find?
The first things we hear from your clients on their first visit is, “Wow, this place is beautiful.” and “I’m so proud of her.” Located right off of I70 and Kipling, we are easy to find. We can guarantee their first visit to your new salon will wow them and they’ll be excited to come back. If you provide good customer service, your clients will want to follow you. There are many ways to ensure your clients will know how to find you and we can provide a list of ideas to get you started.
-What is the difference between renting a chair in a salon and renting my own private suite?
There are some distinct differences between a chair rental and suite rental. When you rent a suite with us, you are your own boss. You are in control of your schedule. You work any day or night, at any time, and as often as you like.
You create the space of your dreams. You design your own brand and decorate your space however you like. In your environment you enjoy a private space for you and your clients while still having access to a supportive community of like-minded entrepreneurs.
You use your own techniques and products, offer your own services, and charge your own prices.
Your clients belong to you. You’re not building loyalty to a salon, you’re building your own business.
Did we mention the cost to you is similar and often the same as many chair rentals?!
