Located in the historic Golden Triangle neighborhood, 4 Elements Aesthetics helps to clear skin imperfections with custom cleanses, clay masks, and lifting treatments. The spa’s resident skin specialist Carrie Shelton relies upon a holistic approach, one that combines skincare and diet consultations with traditional relaxation and meditation techniques. She also cossets faces with high-end brands—including Image Skin Care products—as well as 100% natural, organic essential oils, clays, herbs, and plants. During most services, Carrie keeps the atmosphere tranquil by pouring custom cups of tea that are perfect for unwinding the mind or protesting taxation that lacks representation.
Like professors who keep writing papers even though they finished school 30 years ago, Colorado Cut & Color’s professional stylists keep training to stay abreast of current trends. With their robust base of knowledge, they update women’s and men’s hairstyles with services ranging from haircuts to Brazilian blowouts and Babe extensions. Stylists give each client a thorough consultation, during which they listen carefully and then provide the specific style desired. Along with cuts, color, and styles, the stylists also get rid of unwanted hairs with brow, lip, and facial waxing.
Aestheticians at Suite 323 Skin Care whiten teeth, extend eyelashes, and set complexions aglow, but their specialty is hair removal. The methods they use are waxing and sugaring, the latter of which was chronicled in a humorous Denver Westword column. The author, Jenn Woheltz, was initially nervous to receive a Brazilian sugaring treatment, but ultimately declared that, "Sugaring is miraculous." The aestheticians pride themselves on performing all services with highly focused individual attention.
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.
The Parlour's team is made up of 12 stylists who combine a down-to-earth approach with high-quality service, many of whom have sculpted sleek 'dos at prestigious events such as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC and LA Fashion Week. The staff participates in ongoing training by renowned stylists and in-house classes, and the salon's decor reflects the caliber of this talent. Illuminating hardwood floors and full wall mirrors add dimension to the space, in addition to helping hair techs tailor each cut to their client's face-shape and personality.
Tolga Taskin and the deft stylists at his eponymous salon wield decades of experience and L’Oréal Paris products to crown clients in unique 'dos. Focused solely on strand services, the stylists rework manes with cut, color, and texturizing treatments that fashion crowd-pleasing coifs without wiring clients with a portable laugh track. The service menu also features lock-lengthening extensions and the newly imported Kérastase conditioning treatment, which repairs manes battered by chemicals and daily styling regimens.
