The stylists at Rebel Salon Denver apply their artistic talents to more than just hair. That's because the resident artists are the stylists in this part loft and part salon space. On the loft side, natural light pours through the large front windows onto an immense open space, with translucent chairs, repurposed wooden shelves, and frosted-glass dividers. The walls are decorated with an array of modern paintings, each of which illustrates the artist's in-depth understanding of color, shape, and mustard-smearing techniques.
On the salon side, the stylists' work has also received exposure, making an appearance on TLC's What Not To Wear. While working under the glow of overhead track lights, the hair experts render bold color highlights or defrizz tresses with a specialty straightening treatment. In addition to these services, stylist Annie Thomas also offers Brazilian blowouts, hair extensions, and the balayage technique.
Licensed acupuncturist Elizabeth Sartor, a graduate of the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s masters program, entertained herself as a kid by giving members of her family massages. Nowadays, she facilitates wellness in a more official capacity, as the head of Curadora Acupuncture at Ruby Dot Body & Skin Care. By inserting hair-like stainless-steel needles into her clients’ bodies along key energy pathways, she addresses an eclectic set of ailments. Her specialties alone run the gamut from fertility issues to insomnia, which she alleviates by giving every patient a teddy. To enhance her customized treatments, she can incorporate nonacupuncture techniques, such as gentle electrical stimulation or cupping, which stimulates lymphatic circulation with suction from a warm glass cup.
As a child, Shapes Salon and Studio owner Richelle Bishop-Gonzales would tag along with her mother on weekly visits to the salon. The experience made an impression on Richelle. She opened the doors at Shapes more than a decade ago and hasn't looked back since. Nestled in the up-and-coming Lo-Hi neighborhood, Shapes Salon and Studio has carved out a unique niche for itself thanks to a talented staff that specializes in tricky cases, such as curly locks and invisible hair. The result is a full selection of cut and color services, including specialty treatments, such as Deva Cuts and Great Lengths hair extensions.
