Dottie Motnyk won't sugarcoat things and tell you that waxing is always super-relaxing, but she will do everything in her power to make the session as relaxing as possible. That's why she's imbued her studio with a cozy zen garden motif. Private spa rooms erupt with green, from screen prints of tall oak trees to a generous smattering of tall potted plants. Amid these accents, she swiftly nixes unwanted hair with wax sessions. Invigorating facials are also available to exfoliate and renew the complexion.
Licensed aesthetician Sherri Trudell knows how to bring out the best in skin. Using advanced chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, LED therapy, and good, old-fashioned facials, she rids complexions of dead skin cells and tear-smeared clown makeup. In addition to her skin treatments, Trudell draws upon her skills as a licensed Novalash technician to add length and volume to lashes.
Though Franciska Fokkinga has been a jack-of-all-trades in the beauty industry for more than 33 years, in the last decade, she's focused her skills on skincare. In her role as a Bio-Therapeutics educator, she trains doctors, licensed aestheticians, and nurses in using microcurrent technology to noninvasively lift and tighten clients' faces, and employs it at her own studio.
Before each treatment, she sets a relaxing tone by lighting candles, turning on soothing music, and spritzing the room with a light aromatherapy spray infused with essential oils. Purple accents pop against her private studio's silvery walls, and her easygoing yet professional attitude makes the intimate atmosphere comfortable. But it's not just a relaxing experience—she says the main benefit is "actual, visual improvement in the skin."
"It's more than a froufrou facial, but it's not in a medical setting," she says. "I listen to the client and provide a comfortable setting for them, as well as a very effective facial." She selects custom products from brands such as Bio-Therapeutic to best care for her clients' skin types. At the end of appointments, she educates each client with personalized skincare recommendations.
In addition to her high-tech microcurrent and hydrodermabrasion treatments, she offers facials including a men's fitness facial and a classic European facial. Her services extend to facial and bikini waxing. She banishes strands from brows, chins, and lips with a lavender facial wax, and for bikini areas, she uses mild GiGi Honee wax, an all-purpose wax that doesn't burn, cause peeling, or jump ship to become a candlestick.
Fluff* Bar, whose opening was recently profiled by Denver Westword, brings together talented stylists and mixologists to pamper patrons with upscale salon services and expertly crafted libations. Los Angeles celebrity stylist Britt Chambers was inspired to meld a salon and bar by her experiences primping stars for red-carpet events such as the Oscars in LA, according to The Denver Post. The resulting Fluff* Bar is lined with creamy white surfaces, ivory leather, and chandeliers dripping with crystal, designed to evoke the inside of a jewelry box. Within the salon, shears snip locks into precision cuts, deft hands craft close up-ready coifs, and a makeup artist uses experience with countless celebrities to perfectly primp faces.
The bar is also staffed with a wedding specialty team that revels in doing anything and everything bridal, from wedding-day hair and makeup to other bridal-related events such as bachelorette parties, engagement photos, and rehearsal dinners. The team of stylists and beauty experts offers spray tanning and color services, along with a bridal concierge service to help prep brides for their special day. Groups can enjoy the full-service bar's roster of bacchanalian beverages, including wine and champagne offerings assembled by a master sommelier, lavishing tongues with specialty champagne cocktails, mixed drinks, and more than 25 wines. Throughout the day, a sumptuous congregation of teas and coffee also offer eye-opening sips.
