From a child?s first trim to a bride?s big day, the stylist at The Hair Loft expertly execute any hair situation. She cuts away split ends, removes unwanted length, and neatens men?s hairlines with scissors, shavers, and miniature weed whackers. New colors find their way into manes with strategically placed highlights, and a medley of hairpins and hair spray keeps every last strand in place for updos.
Monica Zakry received her coloring certification from Pravana Natureceuticals, as well as her hair extensions certificate from So.Cap. In addition, she offers haircuts for men and women and conditioning services, all inside of Dolce Vita Salon and Spa, a welcoming space where clients are served a beverage and can tap into the free WiFi before their appointment.
Though she held a master's degree in social work and worked at the Children's Hospital of Denver, Melissa Risley felt called to help others in another way. She had personally struggled with physical scars and the emotional damage that went along with them, trying a number of different techniques and products to address the issues without success. Risley decided to enter the field of paramedical aesthetics, and came across a technique known as collagen-induction therapy (CIT), which was gaining attention in Europe, Austria, and South Africa.
Not only did CIT improve the wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks that plagued her clients at Dermagrace Cosmetic Rejuvenation, it also brought closure to Risley's own skincare battles. She now specializes in the technique, which uses tiny microneedles to stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin's sub-layers and convince loitering balloon animals to nest somewhere else. She is also certified in permanent makeup, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, and is a proponent of the Osmosis Skincare line for its noninflammatory ingredients.
Licensed nurse Barb Galinsky perfected her healing touch and gentle bedside manner across nearly eight years spent working in the ER. Today, her nurturing spirit permeates her spa located within Dolce Vita, where clients are made comfortable and cared for with one-on-one attention and complimentary wine, beer, coffee, or tea. Bearing advanced training in all dermal fillers, including Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane, Barb spends most of her days softening fine lines and wrinkles from her clients' faces, allowing them to reclaim lost youth and finally gain admission to the ball pit at the local fast-food joint.
A L'Oreal Professional Artist and color specialist, Jennifer Crosley updates visages with the newest and most popular hair styling techniques. Brazilian blowouts, and heat fusion and micro-cylinder link hair extensions are just a few of the skills she and Master Stylist Angela K have mastered in their combined 50 years of experience. But their real talents are in their ability to listen to the customer's wants and translate them into a style that will work with their lifestyle and hair type. To that end, Jennifer and Angela might use their client's skin tone and birth month to determine the best hair color for them, or evaluate their face shape to design the most flattering cut.
All too often, visits to the spa seem like an inaccessible luxury. Skin Care Essentials incentivizes regular pampering sessions, however, offering discounted prices for facials if purchased in “bulk.” The list of skin services includes a classic deep-pore-cleansing facial with steam, massage, and exfoliation; a more aggressive Jessner’s peel, designed to resurface the face and reduce discoloration; and a treatment that is specially designed for those who suffer from rosacea. Waxing services for the lip, brows, and chin make skin extra smooth.
