Amid soothing earth tones and gleaming hardwood floors, Blisstik Studio augments locks and lashes in personalized, elegant adornment sessions. Monotone tresses can choose from a variety of colorful feathers before a master accessorizer professionally affixes the extension to clients' manes, giving coifs an eye-catching splash of color and ensuring frequent visits by shoulder-parrots. Alternately, owner and certified eyelash-extension expert Megan Ziegler harnesses the allure of Lavish Lashes extensions, which shed off naturally along with clients' own eyelid feelers instead of desperately clinging on until they're peeled off. A specialized adhesive unites each synthetic extension to individual lashes for up to six weeks of full and feathery blinks, winks, and Olympic-butterfly-kiss competitions.

Dr. Dana Morgan is a graduate of University of Washington Medical School—but she's more than a doctor. At Northern Colorado Laser & Skin, Dana works double duty as a doctor and an artist, plumping lips and smoothing wrinkles with artfully placed injections. She oversees assorted laser procedures, which non-invasively combat signs of aging, unwanted stubble, scarring, and supervillian tendencies.
At Beso, it’s a common occurrence to have a high-tech laser float over skin with the aim of removing unwanted hair. Inside the fun, relaxing spa, laser-hair-removal experts miss nary a spot, zapping everything from hairlines to hands and toes. Stylists also tend to hair on clients’ heads with chic haircuts and color changes. Faces also find pampering during custom facials, diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatments, and tender cheek pinches.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
The Mona Lisa’s famous grin fittingly welcomes visitors into DaVinci’s Salon and Spa, an oasis drenched in calm mocha hues where stylists disclose their beauty secrets and elicit grins with works of hair and nail art. Photographs of perfectly manicured nails hang before an arsenal of nail stations, where talented artists use OPI paints to create stylish masterpieces across fingers, toes, and foreheads. In the adjacent space, hairstylists wielding products by Pureology and Kenra add dimension and color to strands with luminous highlights, or sculpt formal updos and bouncy curled styles for special occasions.
