Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
Top-notch, amazing, and fantastic are just a few words Foundation Hair Studio's zealous clients have used to describe owner and stylist Candace. And it's no wonder as the skilled beautician boasts more than a decade of industry experience and specializations in Ouidad curly hairstyling, Alfaparf and Goldwell coloring, and Hotheads extensions. The studio's other stylists including Heather—a protégé of Candace's—also impart their knowledge of healthy haircare to clients. They update their 'dos with current and classic salon services, from adding length with Babe hair extensions to taming unruly frizz with formaldehyde-free keratin treatments from GKhair, Brazilian Blowout, or Diora.
Although Foundation's garden-level studio rests below the sidewalk’s surface, the interior feels open and bright. Sleek white furnishings at each cutting station glisten beneath crystal chandeliers, and the pale-green hues emanating from barber chairs and life-size trolls loitering by the shampoo bowls add a soft complement to the salon's minimalistic decor.
WIth six different mani-pedis on its menu, Summer's Salon gives you plenty of options. Nails get shaped carefully, masks seal in moisture, and sugar scrubs relieve hands and feet of dead skin cells without the traditional duct tape. For those who want more beautification, the salon's stylists color and sculpt hair into flattering shapes.
A design motif characterized by simple but elegant chandeliers and lemon- and lime-hued walls maintains a sunny ambiance across all three of Nail Day's Denver locations. The charming backdrop puts clients at ease as they hunker down into plush chairs and let aestheticians primp and prettify their hands and feet. To ensure optimal sanitation, Nail Day offers manicure kits that customers can take with them and bring back for each treatment, giving them their own individual file, sanding file, and orangewood stick. In addition, staffers disinfect sinks and tabletops multiple times a day with a hospital-grade germ-killing solution and clean all metal implements through autoclaving, a heat-sterilization method used at medical facilities.
The certified and licensed aestheticians at Maral Day Spa defy aging and environmental forces with facials, body treatments, and microdermabrasion. The staffers are also tech-savvy and licensed in both the anti-cellulite lipo-massage system and the hydrafacial, a new technology that balances uneven skin tone and shrinks pores. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair and shape comely arches above the eyes, which can also be enhanced by eyebrow and eyelash tinting or by super-gluing a bedazzled monocle to the bridge of the nose.
Clayton Spa and Salon’s owner has been fixing up and coloring men and women’s hair for more than 20 years. Inside the studio, which invokes a natural serenity with hardwood floors and large windows, she leads her staff in updating hairdos with customized perms and conditioning color using American Crew and Framesi products. They’ll also tint eyebrows and rejuvenate skin with facials using products from near and far—including the French-speaking Pevonia.
