Murat Tercan has a world of salon experience?literally. The native Turk started out by helping his family open a salon in Ankara, then he went on to hone his craft at the L'Oreal Academy in Paris and the Wella and Schwarzkopf academies in Germany. He built his resume styling hair for fashion shows for Valentino, Versace, and Armani, later traveling as an international educator for L'Oreal.
Since making yet another home in Colorado, he opened his own space, Enchante, where he and his team perform advanced services such as designer haircuts, color corrections, and keratin treatments. In the spirit of Murat's background in education, stylists are committed to not just giving clients a style, but teaching them to maintain it. There's also an onsite spa where clients can retreat to receive Swedish massages and Dermalogica facials, or to ease their fear of scissors.
Stacy McMullen’s goal is simple: to get her clients to relax and unwind. But on her way to accomplishing that goal, she’s done anything but sit back and relax herself. Her credentials are as diverse as her energy is unflappable; aside from being a certified orthopedic and sports massage therapist, she’s also a Pilates instructor, a nationally registered paramedic, and a current fire academy student.
These areas of her expertise culminate inside of Stacy McMullen Studios, where Stacy and her staff offer massage, facials, aromatherapy salt glow body treatments, and integrated movement exercise Pilates. Otherwise known as IM=XPilates, this fitness regimen combines Pilates with strength and cardio training, yoga, and a ballet bar to provide a comprehensive fitness regimen that helps with posture and movement patterns.

Inside a small brick building adorned with a chimney and green trim, Dave and Carol McEndaffer work amid lilac walls and potted plants. It’s a lovely setting for a couple in the business of beautifying people, which they have extensive experience in. The duo has owned salons throughout the past 37 years and added Laurels Salon of Distinction to their stable more than a decade ago. They've studied with seasoned stylists; while Dave focuses on hair, Carol pours her efforts into skin care, wellness, and restoration treatments for baldness and thinning hair.
In addition to cuts and ammonia-free color, they cosset their clientele with massages, spray tanning, and waxing. The salon is stationed across the street from Colorado State University, so it’s a convenient spot to de-stress after an exam or to cover your eyes with cucumbers before a scary PowerPoint presentation.
Bella Vie Spa is a one-stop, full-service hair and beauty spa that believes wellness starts from within. That's why the staff takes great pains to ensure everyone who walks into their peaceful downtown Windsor retreat has as relaxing an experience as possible. Quiet, private treatment rooms await clients in search of soothing, hot stone massages or underarm sugaring, a service believed to remove hair more painlessly than treatments that use wax. Elsewhere in the spa, clients sip non-alcoholic memosas during facials, manicures, and bridal trial up-dos, and licensed stylists offer modern haircuts and coloring treatments with products by Redken and Schwartzkopf. And, for the full luxurious treatment, customers can also enjoy a light spa lunch at Bella Vie if they order ahead or book a couples massage.
With more than 25 collective years of beautifying experience, Enchante's dedicated staff utilizes top-of-the-line products in a wide range of bodily tune-ups. Hair services range from basic shape-ups such as a cuts ($35–$60 for women, $25–$40 for men), styles ($20+), and highlights ($30+) to total textural transformations with Japanese straightening ($300+) or a Keratin complex blowout (priced based on consultation). Refurbish a winter-weary complexion with a professional makeup application, or gain a competitive advantage in the slip-n-slide bowl with conventional waxing ($30–50 per leg, $30 bikini, $50 Brazilian). Facial threading ($20–$45)—a sensitive-skin friendly wax alternative—rids troublesome bristles from the face and makes it easier to lace up, and digits get the royal treatment with a spa mani-pedi ($65), which includes an aromatic soak, trim, exfoliation, paraffin dip, massage, and polish.
