If you traveled back in time to see Shelly Rewinkle when she was a little girl, you probably wouldn't expect her to become a hairstylist. That's because she spent most of her time playing with boys and riding dirt bikes in California. But ever since the late 80s, this tomboy-turned-stylist has strengthened her skills by working in salons and training with brands such as Aveda and American Crew.
As the owner of Grand Salon, Shelly leads a team of stylists, who tend to manes and pour complimentary glasses of wine and cucumber water. In addition to their expert services, they have been known to go above and beyond by feeding clients' meters, grabbing their lunch, and videotaping their children's clarinet recitals. All of this takes place inside an old plant warehouse, where 20 skylights illumine the cavernous space. Before opening, Shelly brought in craftsmen to build tabletops out of old wood. By mixing these natural elements with the industrial feel of the building, she created a modern ambiance that still feels warm and inviting. At the front of salon, a boutique displays art and accessories alongside products by Bumble and bumble and Kerastase.
Before Steven Trujillo heads to his salon in the morning, he takes a moment to relax in his garden, relish the fresh air, and marvel at the blossoming white roses. When explaining this ritual to reporters from the Rocky Mountain News, Steven said, "This is my peaceful spot. Once I spend some time out here, I can handle the chaos of the rest of the day." And his day certainly can get chaotic—the highly sought-after stylist is the owner of El Salon, where he snips new looks for a never-ending queue of brides and everyday clients pursuing the latest styles. The deftness of his work also has made him a popular man in the fashion world, with magazines such as 303 commissioning his work for photo shoots.
Within Steven’s sunlit salon, clients await appointments on sleek white chairs, admiring the abstract artwork and paintings that adorn the walls. A staff of highly trained specialists darts about nimbly, coloring hair, polishing nails, and pampering skin with facials. In order to stay on top of their craft, Steven and his staff routinely undergo training and take pains to monitor the hairstyle trends perpetuated by recent celebrity events and bigfoot sightings.
Before there was Bloom Salon Plus, owners Richard Robb and Patti Saunier worked alongside the Bloom Salon Plus team at another salon and spa. When that one closed down suddenly, the group decided to stay together. They strove to build an environment based on trust and mutual cooperation. And that was how Bloom Salon Plus was born. It rose from the ashes of that old salon and spa, like a phoenix or a butterfly wearing a flameproof suit of armor.
Services include haircuts for men and women, color treatments, waxing, and manicures. Their skin specialists brandish products from brands such as Pureology, Aquage, Éminence, and Lexli when treating exteriors to four different facials, yam and pumpkin peels, and a variety of body scrubs that contain seasonal ingredients.
By its appearance, Bliss Nail Spa seems like something out of a classic sci-fi film. Set under soft, comforting lighting, dramatic curves and arches ensconce the nail stations and massage chairs, as if echoing the vision of a shining future in which individuals can simply step into a sleek chamber, close their eyes, and be instantly transported to a peaceful getaway. Although it remains tethered to the present, Bliss Nail Spa is no less tranquil, pairing its manicures with lotion massages and Japanese-style hot-stone treatments. For a quick respite, clients can sit back for a pedicure-accompanying chair massage lasting 10?25 minutes, letting them get back to the everyday stresses of today's world, such as fleeing from flying cyber-sharks.
A design motif characterized by simple but elegant chandeliers and lemon- and lime-hued walls maintains a sunny ambiance across all three of Nail Day's Denver locations. The charming backdrop puts clients at ease as they hunker down into plush chairs and let aestheticians primp and prettify their hands and feet. To ensure optimal sanitation, Nail Day offers manicure kits that customers can take with them and bring back for each treatment, giving them their own individual file, sanding file, and orangewood stick. In addition, staffers disinfect sinks and tabletops multiple times a day with a hospital-grade germ-killing solution and clean all metal implements through autoclaving, a heat-sterilization method used at medical facilities.
Elegant chandeliers sparkle above Salon Tres Ci's spacious hardwood floors, illuminating black-and-white hair stations and pedicure thrones framed by a contemporary Eiffel Tower mural. Chic and lively, the salon's interior decor spills into private facial rooms, where periwinkle walls, plush beds, and porcelain sink bowls hold court. The salonkeepers, who are highly trained in cutting and coloring, revitalize weathered locks with Brazilian blowouts, haircuts, and highlights. Focused on earth-friendly actions, Salon Tres Ci?s staff utilizes Aveda products?with hair colors derived from 97% plant-based ingredients?and participates in Earth Month as well as Mother Earth?s annual Star Wars?themed holiday party.
