Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
Over the last 12 years, Judit Hillman has mastered hairstyling techniques at chic resorts such as the Ritz Carlton and Montage Laguna Beach. Now, she shares her skills at her own studio in Highlands Ranch. She shapes hair with precise haircuts and infuses locks with stylish color treatments using a botanically derived coloring product with an essential-oil-cream base that preserves the hair's health. Then, she styles tresses using vegan haircare products by brands such as Alfaparf Milano color, Kevin Murphy, and ColorProof, all of which are free of sulfates, parabens, carcinogens, and a host of other undesirable elements.
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.
No opportunity for relaxation is overlooked at Trouble Salon. Just inside the entrance, plush red couches laden with pillows sit behind a red curtain. Adding to this ambiance are modern paintings and the occasional lit candle. Hair services start at shampooing stations, where comfy massage chairs soothe muscles while the stylists do their work.
Once situated at the styling stations, clients continue to be put at ease by the staff's expertise in many areas of hair care. In addition to cuts, the beauty experts can add vivid highlights, smooth out hair with Brazilian Blowouts, or add extra inches with extensions, helping clients finally reach the hair-length requirements for roller coasters. The staff also includes aestheticians, who administer eyelash extensions or wax away unwanted hair from the face and underarms.
Fresh stays true to its name by staying on top of beauty-industry trends. The salon's mani-pedis, which were featured in a FOX 31 "Beauty Ambush" segment and in The Knot, beautify nails with ultra fashionable Kevin Murphy and Deborah Lippmann polish.
In addition to refreshing nails, Fresh reinvigorates styles with blowouts, waxing, and lash extensions, often using a line of products and supplies made in the United States. Fresh also pampers kids alongside their moms, offering kid-friendly mani-pedis and fun hair braids.
When you mix a learning program with a full-service salon and spa, you get The Salon Academy & Spa—a facility that’s been readying students for cosmetology careers since 1978. But don’t let this long history fool you into thinking the treatments here are dated. Students learn the latest trends, such as how to reduce frizz with Brazilian Blowout treatments or boost vibrancy with L’Oreal Professional Color. They also wield diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands to remove dead skin cells, fading the look of sun damage, acne scars, and fine lines that connect the acne scars. These treatments and more are performed under the watchful eye of an instructor, who makes sure every haircut, wax, or facial is up to snuff.
