Megan Jones has an important role in Moffat County — she keeps people beautiful and confident.

And Moffat County has noticed. Megan was voted the best hair stylist in 2015. Not only that, but her salon was voted best hair salon in the county.

“I feel honored, because Moffat County voted me the best, and it makes me happy,” Jones said.

Megan’s hard work and dedication to her craft has grown significantly in the last year.

In January, Megan and her team moved the salon from a rented space at 518 Yampa Ave. to 571 Yampa Ave. in downtown Craig. She bought the building from Blake and Charlene Abdella, giving her customers a state-of-the-art 2,500-square-foot hair salon.

“When your dreams come true, I can’t explain the felling. Yeah, it’s amazing,” Megan said. “My clients feel like my family. When I come to work, it’s like family away from family.”

Megan has two young kids, Iesha, 8 and Deagan, 6, and she looks forward to providing a bright future for her children.

“I don’t want to stop with this salon,” she said. “I want to open businesses throughout Colorado and have franchises.”

She’d like to eventually open a Capo Salon in Glenwood Springs and Fort Collins.

As for her staff, well, they’re thrilled to work at Capo. Megan has two other women who work at the salon.

“These are my best friends,” said stylist Candice Mathers-Haack, adding that it’s wonderful working with her girlfriends.

Angela Doane also works at Capo, and she grew up with Candice and Megan.

“I just love working with these two girls,” Angela said.

And the customers seem to enjoy the atmosphere too.

“I like it. I like it a lot,” said Burt Clements. “When they redid this place, they really made it homey.”
