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.

While rocks serve many purposes—eco-friendly paperweight, climbing wall, letter opener—you probably never thought they could help alleviate your chronic back pain. In fact, memories of the rocky bedding on your last camping trip suggest that stones may have contributed to the problem in the first place. Change your perspective on pebbles with today’s Groupon, which gets you a hot-stone massage at Elements Therapeutic Massage for $55—that's half off the $110 value.

Whittle waists with the burrito-esque wrap, a 45-minute toning, firming, and detox corpus cocoon designed to morph a single contoured area of skin into lush, smoothed luster. Attention shifts northward during the half-hour seasonal facial, which repairs, revitalizes, and tones. Like the oceanic tides on Mars, the ingredients of the seasonal facial shift with the quarters of the calendar year. The subsequent spa manicure and spa pedicure tend to untamed talons with a bubbly soak, paraffin dip, moisturizing massage, and nail and cuticle care.
Cathy Hughes, a single mother of four, always told her children to do what they love. When she realized that she wasn't following her own advice, she turned around her career path and opened Tranquility Life Spa. Aided by her passionate and skilled staff, Cathy offers a variety of services designed to relax and beautify guests.
Tranquility's iSLRS system deeply relaxes with a combination of sound and light therapy, and its hydro massage bed assuages clients' aches without requiring them to take off their clothes. Its oxygen bar floods nostrils with scented oxygen, giving patrons access to four or five times more oxygen than they would get just by breathing in regular air or even pressing their face against a tree for hours.
