Salon Hether's team of stylists clips and colors coifs with comprehensive services in its Goldwell Platinum salon, and its wizardry with shades and hues snagged the salon the 2010 Best Color recognition in Denver's A-List. At the shampoo station, lather soaks through clients' head threads as trained fingers lightly massage the scalp. With hair dampened and primed, client and stylist map out a hair plan that complement's the client's face, fashion sense, and spirit animal. A custom cut tames locks to flatter faces with either classic or progressive looks. To regenerate damaged hair and protect color, stylists daub in the Goldwell Inner Effect conditioning system. For those who opt for a partial highlight, Goldwell's colors infuse manes with eye-catching flair.
Deux Amis Salon's stylists ornament natural tresses with polychromatic rooster feathers in varying lengths and widths. Coiffeurs install each bundle of three colorful quills with a silicone bead, which holds feathers in place four to six weeks without damaging anchoring hairs. Return to Deux Amis for a complimentary removal of feathers ruffled by wear or a fawning seagull . Extensions withstand abrasion from washing, drying, and normal heat styling with curling irons, flat irons, and run-ins with waffle irons.
The skincare professionals at Sugar Spot know you love your skin, so they cover it in curative botanical mud. During the Moor mud wrap, they smother the body in 100% organic peet-bog mud to remove toxins, tighten the skin, and treat back acne. The staff uses ingredients such as mineral salt to smooth rough areas and lactic acid to soften fine lines. They correct sun spots with a brightening agent, and at the end of conditioning treatments, they apply masks to restore moisture and protect skin from irritants and wild cream pies. They also slough away dead skin cells with chemical peels, which leave a clean surface for glo minerals makeup.
At Nails By Michelle, nail technicians gloss nails with brilliant color before adorning them with one-of-a-kind designs: glittery dots, sprawling spiderwebs, variegated stripes, or various spins on the french manicure. Owner Michelle Shoemaker specializes in gel manicures, which resist breaking off into mini tortilla chips from everyday use. The salon is adamant about keeping every process sanitary, using disposable files and buffers and disinfecting all other tools after each appointment.
Aesthetician Julia Hodson knows her away around her clients' skin because of years of training and an intimate understanding of human physiology. In her studio, she performs four distinct facials and one back treatment—which couple with other services, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning—to leave epidermises glowing. She also helps strip away unwanted hair with waxing services, and fill out areas where hair is desired with eyelash extensions.
Owners Ame and Dennis Metcalfe run the Aveda Art and Science Studio at D’Ametri’s, helming a skilled staff—which includes board-certified hair colorists—and is divided into three parts.

Those who graduate from this training program become Pure Former designers and hope to become members of the Genius Studio, a group of the most experienced stylists who are able to teach follicles how to speak Latin.
