Wax and Beauty Bar?s licensed skin care professionals are trained to work with all skin types. They free clients from unwanted hair on faces, legs, backs, and virtually anywhere else, and adhere to strict sanitary standards that prohibit double dipping. That attention to quality carries over to the salon's other services as well, which include custom facials that blast through oil and acne, and custom airbrush tans that help skin
adopt a bronze hue without subjecting it to the harmful rays of the sun or the neighbor's re-purposed bug zapper.
The techs at It's Simply Sugar sweep unwanted fuzz from bodies with professional-grade sugar paste comprised of sugar, water, and lemon. This concoction eschews dyes, fragrances, parabens, and petrols—pollutants that can cause irritation or skin to glow when you stand near a microwave. After techs slather exteriors with the unheated paste, they carefully remove coated hairs in the direction of the hair's growth to lessen any discomfort. Once skin has been thoroughly plucked, clients can don bathing suits without fear of itchiness. When techs aren't plucking strands, they offer services such as eyelash extensions, facials, and body scrubs.
Lauren Evans Mutch and Krystyn Whaley’s beauty icons were their own grandmothers, who taught them the importance of body and skin care. The duo even named their business after their inspirational grandmothers, and now pamper others with massages, mani-pedis, and custom facials. In addition to beauty treatments, acupuncture sessions can help relieve chronic pain, allergies, and bouts of depression.
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.
Uptown Wax provides waxing services for men and women. For the most pain-free and effective wax possible, the hair-removal specialists apply a skin cleanser before using a thick layer of hard wax. If that doesn't sound like enough, the studio also maintains a bar stocked with whiskey, wine, and beer to distract clients from the process. After their waxing service, which can strip away hair anywhere from head to toe, clients can cement?or rather gild?their new look by receiving a spray tan.
