Amie Griffin has had a passion for hairstyling since childhood, so it was no surprise that she ended up a student at the Paul Mitchell School in Denver. She has advanced education in razor-cutting, corrective color, and received certifications in Brazilian Blowouts and hair extensions?all to better serve her clients at Roxylocks. Amie isn't content to rest on her laurels, though. That's why she's received additional education on products from Paul Mitchell, Redken, Joico, and American Crew.
Ange de La Mer Spa promotes whole-body health through holistic treatments that clear cluttered bodies and minds. The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians comfort patients throughout the duration of their detoxifying services with attentive care.

Custom facial treatments restore the best qualities of youthful countenances and chase acne off the face and back into high-school yearbook photos.
The Transparent Smiles practice is more like a hip salon than a dentist's office, with smart TVs, iPads with music and games, and massage chairs to keep patients comfortable during treatments. Friendly staff members apply organic, mineral-based DaVinci whitening gel to teeth before activating it with a laser. The process is safe for existing dental work, strengthens enamel while removing stains, and lightens teeth up to eight shades on average.
After losing a family member in 2003, Terri Mairley, Udaya Yoga's owner, turned to the art of yoga. She soon discovered a new life purpose. Seeing first-hand both the physical and emotional benefits that yoga could bring to one's life, Terri decided to open up her own studio in 2007. Since then, Udaya Yoga's schedule has grown to include more than 20 weekly sessions. Classes such as Udaya Flow, which focuses on the connection between movement and breathing, are accessible for beginning yogis. In contrast, Power Yoga involves more challenging sequences that are best suited for Gumby and also students with foundational skills.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
