Within a renovated church, owner Sarah Kendall styles hair with the skills that made her an educator for TIGI, Phyto, and Kydra. A plaster angel reminiscent of the Winged Victory of Samothrace hangs illumined on the salon's golden walls, hovering over spacious styling stations fully equipped with full-length mirrors and cabinets. Private treatment rooms welcome guests with spa treatments that include massages and facials. In the lobby, clients seeking to take home supplies to maintain their hair treatment or facial can browse a cabinet full of designer products by the light of glowing stained-glass windows.
At Glitter Nails Boutique, Tonya Hudnall guides a staff of professionals who gussy up digits with a full palette of different polishes. They transform nails with traditional manicures and pedicures, adorn them with acrylic tips and French polish, and banish calluses with sugar scrubs. In addition to traditional services, they offer glitter polish for added sparkle and gel formulas that not only resist chips, but can still be removed by acetone or really menacing growls.
The expert stylists at Colorado Hair Designers have dedicated a quarter century to crafting trendy and classic silhouettes with professional hair-cutting and styling services. Framed mirrors reflect clients as they sink into plush leather chairs and divulge their ideal ‘do to a trained stylist. Shears then slash their way through excess strands to shape hair into any number of stylish designs, such as a face-framing bob or a beehive able to conceal an actual beehive. To create springy curls, stylists massage rich lather into manes and rinse hair clean before coiling locks around professional-grade rollers. Alternatively, guests can opt for the vitalizing gust of a warm blow-dryer, which tousles tresses to a sleek, polished finish.
With a friendly and professional staff of stylists, Paloma Salon & Micro Spa pampers and beautifies clients with a range of top-quality organic products from Onesta and Kevin Murphy. Hands and feet pining for attention can be placated with the spa mani-pedi, during which technicians trim and shape digit shields before coating them with a selection from the colorful panoply of paints, ensuring digits maintain a welcoming environment for diamond rings, ruby toe rings, and emerald-studded thimbles.
The Garden of the Gods Club’s spacious rooms supply weary visitors shelter from days spent exploring the resort's epic terrestrial setting at the Garden of the Gods Park, full of dazzling natural rock formations, dramatic cliffs and towers, and oak-filled detours. Every room boasts spectacular views of this panorama, as well as king-sized beds, stylish sitting areas, daily newspaper delivery, high-speed Internet access, and secret tunnels to Beijing. Guests can work up a sweat traversing the 27-hole championship-caliber golf course or scouting the nearby buttes and pathways of snow-capped Pikes Peak. A return to the club yields sensory indulgences, including a full-service spa and both casual and gourmet eateries. An additional $12 resort fee is not included with this Groupon but goes to cover some of the club's many amenities. With today's Groupon, customers enjoy an additional 20% off at the resort spa and a complimentary bottle of house wine with the purchase of two dinner entrees.
From its humble roots as a nail salon, Nature's Beauty Spa and Nails spent its first year growing into a full day spa. Although the nail technicians still pamper fingers, toes, and antennae—embellishing basic mani-pedis with everything from hot stones to paraffin dips—the team now includes a larger roster of dedicated specialists and bodywork therapists. An aesthetician keeps clients' skin looking youthful and radiant by performing revitalizing facials and chemical peels as well as microdermabrasion treatments. For a deeper sense of well-being, the three bodywork therapists can either unravel knotted muscles with fully custom massages or restore energetic balance with reiki and reflexology techniques.
