Boulder Natural/Organic Hair Salon bills itself as a natural organic salon—a claim proven by the lack of shampoo bottles in its wastebaskets. All of the products used by its stylists for shampoos, color, and perms come in recyclable packaging. This environmental focus extends to the products inside the packages as well, which are made from blends of essential oils and plant extracts. Additionally, Boulder Natural/Organic Hair Salon's staff can recommend take-home products, including treatment programs for oily hair, dry scalps, and dreams of being chased by giant scissors.
Winner of the Boulder County Gold People's Choice award for best skincare facility in 2010, Laser & Cosmetic Associates of Boulder's team of surgeons and licensed aestheticians beautify and revitalize face skin with advanced, clinical-grade facial treatments. The Vitalize peel is a 20-minute procedure designed to improve your flesh-emoticon’s skin texture and tone with a gentle rain of safe acids. The Vitalize peel effectively erases fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, and rocks that have sprouted out of the skin as a result of cosmic ray exposure. Faces are slightly sensitive after the procedure and should be protected with sunscreen, but there is virtually no recovery time and patients can return to their office or Senate hearing immediately.
A youthful, modern glamour sets the stage at ten20, where a friendly staff relaxes and converses with patrons in front of a big-screen television. During the 45-minute “tenfingers” manicure, your opposable knuckle sticks will be equipped with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a Costanza hand model. Put your hands where a member of the skilled staff can see them, and you'll be rewarded with a neat nail trimming. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition, leaving your handle bars feeling buttery and spry. After a gentle massage of the arms and hands, a deliberate polishing finishes up your transformation from hand abandon to extreme extremity envy. Over the course of your skin-mitten renovation, use any free appendages to help yourself to complimentary Diet Coke and M&Ms, which you can sip and munch while taking in an episode of Sex and the City, Ellen, or Matlock on the massive monitor before you.
A roar of cheers and laugher erupts in response to a game-winning touchdown flashing on one of the many huge flat-screens. You might think you'd have to walk into a sports bar to catch this scene, and that's exactly what the founders of SportClips were going for. They've designed their man-friendly styling stations to get guys exactly what they need—be it a signature haircut, steamed-towel treatment, or beard detailing—all in about 20 minutes.
