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.
Avanti's suite of skin-services eradicates imperfections such as wrinkles, blemishes, fine lines, hair, and crow's feet with a blend of high-tech equipment and skilled, friendly service. Laser hair removal slips light energy beneath the skin to the dark follicle where unwanted hair grows, searing it at the root like a futuristic light-rabbit seizing a hair-carrot ($125 per underarms treatment, $250 for Brazilian). Those concerned with their brain-case can get wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections ($13 each), luxurious, cleansing customized facial peels ($125), or a microdermabrasion treatment, which gently blasts dead skin cells off, reducing the effects of sun and aging ($90). Like your face, the glassy, modernist offices of Avanti Skin Center boast sleek, clean lines, vibrant natural color, and no giant dragon tattoos.
Salon Texture’s Cristen Miller specializes in producing modern looks, cutting locks into the latest shapes, and enhancing strands with dimensional coloring. As she works, she leverages an arsenal of quality products from L’Oreal and Kerastase—products designed to keep hair healthy, even during vigorous treatments or unexpected tussles with the ceiling fan. The salon also offers a modest list of cosmetic services, including waxing care, airbrush tanning, teeth whitening, and numerous facials designed to slough off dead skin cells and leave clients with a healthy-looking glow.
