The Parlour Hair Salon operates seven locations across Colorado, and each one surrounds its clients in style as soon as they walk through the doors. Established in 1989, the exposed-brick walls, wooden beams, and high ceilings distinguish the Lower Downtown Denver location.
Though each of The Parlour's locations has a distinct personality, they all have a few things in common?namely a team of talented stylists and aestheticians. Before they can snip a hair or buff a cuticle, each of the beauty experts goes through The Parlour's own educational program. The curriculum covers aspects of advanced hairdressing as well as more subtle areas such as communication?an essential skill when working with clients towards the perfect style.
Rita B Salon is named after owner Scott Lobben's mother: Rita Bellino, a well-known hair styling expert who has made-over countless Denver-area manes in her 40-year career. But Scott's lineage isn't the only thing driving his success with scissors and comb—he trained at New York's Bumble & bumble before heading to L.A. to tame some of Hollywood's most famous strands, including those belonging to Meg Ryan and Brooke Shields. Today, he brings his acute knowledge of modern hair trends to oversee a staff of talented hairstylists, which includes graduates of the Vidal Sassoon academy and transplants from Beverly Hills. In addition to doling out services such as relaxers and keratin treatments on a day-to-day-basis, the Rita B Salon team has also worked its magic at prestigious events such as Denver Fashion Weekend.
The award-winning Luxe Salon opened to the willing Denver public in 1999, tucked into a brick storefront with large windows that offer a view of the surrounding downtown Union Station neighborhood. Since then, hair fashionistas have been patronizing this Lower Downtown institution, captivated by its premier staff and wide range of quality services. Located at 17th and Wazee, the hair salon sits amidst the bustle of restaurants, businesses and living spaces, attracting locals and visitors alike with its team of professional stylists, all of whom utilize only the finest products for their clients. Luxe offers a full scope of services, ranging from haircuts and colors to make-up and facial waxing, and sometimes welcome special occasions such as wedding parties and personal events.
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.
