Best Of 2014: LGBT-Friendly Business

Prodigy Salon opened in November 2011, and soon after, Aaron Vigil was invited to come aboard as a co-owner and salon manager. Vigil says it made sense — he's been in the business since 1997, in the Springs since 2001, and was a teacher at Paul Mitchell the School for six years. The stylists working at Prodigy were once his students, and they needed someone with more experience to guide the new business. One of the first things Vigil did? Reach out to the LGBT community. "I've been working really hard on trying to connect with the LGBT community because I myself am gay," he says. "I have been doing business with and advertising with the Colorado Springs Pride Center, and I just really want to create a safe environment where people really feel welcome." Vigil says he and his nine stylists are seeing business pick up, but still need more customers. He's hoping people will spread the word — and the love. — J. Adrian Stanley
