​A native of Southern California, Dorena has over 22 years of experience in the beauty business with 16 of those years spent as a salon owner. She received her training & cosmetology license at Marinello's Beauty College in California.

Dorena moved to Colorado in 1998.

Where her first salon was on a military installation

She then moved off base and opened First Impressions Beauty Salon in Colorado Springs and that's where she learned her skills in short hair, hair weaving, extensions & make up application through with continuing education.

Dorena then moved to Denver and opened The Diva Den Salon in 2008. After 11 years, she decided to re brand herself and her business in 2019 and now owns THE SALON, llc

 Her reputation for extensions, weaves, coloring and short cuts is what has sustained her as a great stylist here in the Denver, CO area,

among her great customer service skills and relaxing salon atmosphere

with little or no wait time for all clients.

She also provides private sessions for those who request it. She believe's continuing education is a must, which keeps her on her toe's

with anything new in the industry and revamping herself constantly. She's a certified weave specialist of Cailf, certified in SO.CAP extensions of Colorado, Lavish lashes eyelash extensions CO 2010,  former educator of Marcia Texteria straightening treatments 2012, a make up artist and recently received her certification in Microblading for eyebrows 2017.
