Barb Rivera says, “The world is a beautiful place. You just have to find the people who make it beautiful.”
And, according to Business Journal readers, Rivera is one of those people.
She won the Best Pueblo Hairstylist award for her work at her salon, Looks Beauty Salon and Barber, which she operates with one other stylist.
Rivera began styling hair in Pueblo in 1993, after getting her start in Hawaii.
Today, she has a roster of about 300 clients, some of whom have been with her since she opened.
As for the award?
“I am shocked!” she said. “It’s an honor. It’s really important to me people leave my salon feeling beautiful and better than they came in — in every way. Not just aesthetically, but spiritually and mentally.”
When asked what sets her apart, Rivera said, “I’m just for real. I don’t mess around.”
