Good, honest, manly activities, such as getting your hair cut at a barber shop, can be real sausage fests. Today’s Groupon beats that by combining the barbershop experience with hot chicks. For $10, you'll get a Top Contender Heavyweight Cut at Knockouts Haircuts for Men (a $25 value), a guy-centric salon that's been featured on The Today Show. This Groupon is good only at the full-service salon's Parker and Centennial locations.
Hairstylist Gina Folkner brings a little bit of glamour and glitz to Artistic Styles' modern salon where she cuts, colors, and styles tresses three days a week. Her aptitude for creating classic or on-trend 'dos is a product of her training, which she did at the Beverly Hills Hair Cutting Academy. Gina also relies on products from J Beverly Hills and Keune to create voluminous curls, super-sleek pompadours, and bobs so sharp they can turn a hat to confetti with one hair flip.
No hairy situation could rattle Denise. Over the last 20 years, she has expertly trimmed men’s hairlines, sheared off overgrown locks on women, and cut kids’ hair. She imbues strands with color using Pravana products and curtails facial fuzz with warm wax or flypaper. She also twists manes into chic updos for dances and weddings.
A former staff sergeant in the Air Force. An airplane mechanic who repaired oxygen masks. A master massage therapist, registered medical assistant, and certified laser technician. Tina Long is all of these things and more. As the owner of Parker Med Spa, she combines her unique background with innovative technology to offer clients the latest anti-aging and beauty solutions.
Long helps her clients to deal with the frustration of weight loss with body-contouring treatments such as the Zerona and Yolo laser systems, having herself lost pounds, inches, and degrees of insulation with the fat-emulsifying devices. The historical ambiance, array of facial and body treatments, and advanced technology earned her spa recognition on ABC 7 and CityVoter's 2011 A-List; it was named a finalist in the Best Day Spa category and nominated in the Best Medical Spa category.
The practice is located within the charming yellow Hoskins House, a century-old Victorian landmark surrounded by cottonwood trees, complete with a porch swing. Inside, massage therapists and aestheticians perform relaxing massages, hot-stone pedicures, and skin-rejuvenating chemical peels in 15 private rooms. Technicians use seven different lasers to perform procedures ranging from vein and hair removal to nonsurgical face-lifts.
Rebecca Johnson, owner of the eponymous Rebecca j Salon, formerly did makeup and hair for television, movies, and commercial prints. She also made over brides saying “I do,” or “You better not still be a frog after this,” during Disney fantasy weddings in Orlando. Now at her salon in Denver, Johnson draws on this wealth of knowledge and a selection of body-friendly products—including ammonia-free hair color and sulfate-free Kevin.Murphy styling products—to beautify clients.
She and her staff specialize in haircuts, color, and Hotheads tape hair extensions, which adhere directly to strands so that they lie flush with natural locks. Johnson still applies makeup for everyday or special occasions, using an airbrush for a smooth finish.
