From her outpost in Viola Salon, Spa and Parfumerie, Denver Waxing owner and aesthetician Miranda Olinger has transformed the drama of beautification into a one-woman show. Drawing on aesthetics experience dating back to her teenage years, which she spent as a makeup artist for runway shows, Miranda now devotes her time to pampering her clients with beauty services that yield lasting results. She performs each of Denver Waxing’s namesake hair-removal services for men and women using hard wax, which is specially formulated for sensitive areas such as bikini lines and phantom limbs. Her roster of services stretches farther than the name suggests, however, as the specialist also polishes complexions with skin-clearing facials and spray-tanning services.
The owners of BeYou Spaces give talented spa and salon specialists free rein to design their own workstations, devise their own service menus, and dictate their hours of operation. While roaming within the facility’s exposed brick walls, visitors discover spaces dedicated to services such as massage therapy, hair styling, and art commissions. BeYou Spaces also specializes in custom airbrush tans, which bronze complexions for up to two weeks without harmful UV exposure or a vat of melted third-place trophies.
Guiltless Glow owner and proprietor Laurie Middleton was once a self-proclaimed “sun-worshipper," who relied on tanning beds for her bronzed glow. She soon learned of the benefits of airbrush tanning—the customizable shades, the skin-toning and evening properties, and lack of harmful UV rays—and has since dedicated herself to sharing that knowledge. Inside her studio, she's further expanded her passion for beautification, performing skincare, nail, and waxing services, offering Norvell automatic booth tans, and adding glow to grins with DaVinci organic teeth-whitening services.
This new downtown Denver business uses a natural tanning mixture of beet sugar extract to sunlessly bronze your buffness. Airbrushing eliminates inconsistent splotches and lays down a smooth, realistic-looking tan. A tanned hide will help rescuers spot you in a snowdrift and make your skin pop against the white background of police lineups.
