What's black, white, and red all over? No, seriously: Heart33 Salon & Spa reclaims the tired elementary joke with its vivid red, black, and white decor. First there's the waiting area, with a lipstick red leather couch positioned perfectly under artwork of a woman's face, which is black and white except for her vivid red lips. In another area, a fire-red wall flanked with a zebra portrait sets off cherry-red chairs topped with zebra-striped pillows. Inside the captivating surroundings, stylists tend to guests' hair, nails, and faces, with services that include haircuts and color, facials, waxing, nailcare, and more.
He may be master of multiple laser systems, but Dr. Robert T. Motazedi is not looking to blow up the moon. Rather, the chief of The Colorado Laser Clinic has set his sights on destroying sun spots, acne, and even tired tattoos with his aesthetic laser treatments. The doctor, along with his certified and trained assistants, has wielded laser power to remove unwanted hair for more than 15 years. For jobs not fit for a laser, the doc calls upon Physician’s Choice chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and doses of Restylane, Sculptra, and Botox.
The seven stylists of Beyond Hair Studio and Spa cut, color, snip, paint, and primp to keep hair and nails looking their snazziest. Patrons might stop by for quick new coats of nail polish or for wildly different new 'dos, but whatever the reason, they're treated to thorough, attentive service.
Ragamuffins Spa works towards a single goal: to care and serve the inner beauty as well as the outer beauty. A service menu of glycolic peels and indulgent facials serves this purpose by helping to boost each client’s sense of well-being and self-esteem.
Uncle Bud and Aunt Brinda Yates founded Pikes Peak Tattoo in 1978. After years of honing her craft, Brinda took home the first-place trophy in the Best Use of Tribal category at the 2009 Colorado Tattoo Competition. Now, when she isn't inking, she actively participates in the National Tattoo Association—of which Uncle Bud once served as president—and sings doggy lullabies to her herd of six chihuahuas.
To help with the shop, Brinda hired current manager, Barrett Leary, a skilled artist who got her start as the apprentice for Dan McClure of Bullwinkle's Tattoo and Body Piercing. Her artistry is wide reaching, as she also earned a bachelor of fine arts in ceramic sculpture from Kansas City Art Institute and was featured in the documentary Craft In America for developing a distinctive ceramic technique. Barrett skillfully draws custom designs and comfortably transitions between different styles, though she retains a fondness for large-scale pieces with bright colors. She and her fellow certified artists also offer permanent makeup, tattoo removal, and piercing. They perform all their services with hospital-grade sterilization techniques and keep their single-use-only equipment in special sterilization pouches, discarding each tool immediately after use.
"I have always been an artist," says Heebee Jeebees' owner, Karen Knight. A native of Liverpool, England, her artistic travels have led her through careers in portrait painting, clothing design, makeup artistry, and other creative endeavors, before she thoroughly immersed herself in her love for body art. Alongside two other skilled tattoo artists, Knight creates custom artwork based on client specifications, and promises a lifetime of touch-ups to ensure the colors stay rich and the invisible ink stays invisible. Brightly hued walls lined with original artwork and photographs provide visual inspiration for patrons and passersby.
