After beginning to adopt more environmentally conscious practices in their personal lives, hairstylists Joy and Jeremy realized how hard the salon atmosphere could be on Mother Nature and set out to open their own eco-friendly salon. Their salon's open floor plan, organized into chic styling stations and suffused in natural light from numerous surrounding windows, highlights bright modern salon furniture, all of which is reused. In addition to the décor, their green reach expands to the salon's all-natural styling products and energy-efficient, retractable blow dryers, which dangle from the ceiling like a paratrooper after a poorly executed landing. Their resident aestheticians, nail techs, and massage therapists dole out the salon's expansive menu of services, pampering clients with custom facials, head-to-toe waxing treatments, and relaxing mani-pedis.
The licensed and experienced staff has years of experience sprucing up skin and practice the latest in skin-care technology. Each treatment is specifically designed to make faces maintain youthfulness and feel healthier. Rekindle the glow with the HydraFacial, a procedure that extracts dearly departed cells while simultaneously hydrating and cleansing the skin. The process helps to conceal wrinkles and blemishes and eliminate oily skin, leaving faces looking fresh, naturally enhanced, and ready for a drive-by pie smashing from that pesky neighborhood clown.
OP Nails II is like something out of a thumb, pinky, or index finger's wildest dreams. Upon entering the spa, a rainbow of polish lining the shelves welcomes clients to a nailcare oasis. Regular polishes, durable gels, and a wide range of shellac tintspresent clients and aestheticians with a world of possibilities to cap off mani-pedi services.
Those services unfold at relaxing nail stations, where aestheticians tend to cuticles, sculpt nails, and soften skin with products from the New Age Loc Nu Skin Line. Aside from polishes, the techs can finish with full sets of acrylic and gel nails, which are stronger than normal nails and don't fall off upon being tickled. OP Nails II's team also throws Happy Hour every Friday at 4 p.m., during which they serve wine and snacks to complement their mani-pedis or other services, such as waxing treatments.
Named Best Haircut/Salon in Colorado Community Newspapers' 2009 Best of the Best Lone Tree, Blue Mist relies on an experienced squad of aesthetic experts to provide a broad range of beauty-related services. Like the chainsaw pointillists of the early '20s, the salon's savvy stylists—who average 12 years of experience—specialize in artful cuts (starting at $45 for women, $30 for men) and coloring ($70 and up) to help clients achieve museum-quality hairstyles. Facial and body hair is kept at bay with a variety of waxing services, including eyebrow waxing ($18), leg waxing ($35+), and bikini waxing in traditional ($35), French ($42), and Brazilian ($55) varieties. Manicures ($20) and pedicures ($35) are available to help fingerless-glove models and barefoot sous chefs keep cuticles and calluses under control, and both can be upgraded to include hot-oil treatments and soothing masks.
