Feeling Fresh: Our 3 Go-To Beauty Appointments Around Town

There’s something special (and soothing) about booking a beauty appointment. Whether you’re scheduling a little extra you time, finding the perfect pedicure or checking out a new self-care trend, it’s all about discovering what makes you feel ah-mazing.

We’ve got three of our favorite beauty services around Denver. Trust us; you’ll be feeling really good—and radiant—in no time at all! 

 

NAILING IT

Where to go: Haven
Located in Curtis Park, this nail salon is hip, happening and has all the fabulous feels. 
What to book: The Spa manicure
Just as relaxing as it sounds, this service is like a dose of zen for your nails. Not only do you get your favorite natural or gel polish, you’ll receive an exfoliating salt scrub, massage, hand healing mask, and hot mitts. 

 

GLOW GETTER 

Where to go: E5 Day Spa
When you need to release the stress of everyday life, this day spa is our preferred place for pampering.
What to book: Infrared Sauna session
If you are looking to detox, relax, and get your glow on, an infrared sauna session is the answer. By heating your body versus the air around you like a traditional sauna, you’ll be sweating out all stress and feeling renewed in under 45 minutes at this urban oasis. 

 

H2-OHHHH

Where to go: Skin In The City 
Experience what personalized skincare is all about at this modern, boutique med spa. 
What to book: O2 Lift Oxygen facial 
The best part about this facial? It’s gentle enough for all skin types. Utilizing a custom blend of oxygen, plant-derived stem cells, peptides, and concentrated enzymatic botanicals, this 35-minute appointment will have your face thinking it spent a whole day at the spa.

What Do We Expect from Beauty Salons Reopening Now?

Beauty
Salon
COVID-19

Things are weird. Times are changing. It seems like just when we’re starting to get a grip, there’s another surprise. When it comes to beauty, we've had to adapt on our own due to salon closures, keep an eye on preparations and protocol changes during those closures, try to know what we’re doing before booking an appointment once they reopened, and maybe even brave the journey back to the salon. Whether you live in a place where salons are open, you’ve experienced a second shutdown, or you straight up haven’t had a haircut since March, we can all probably agree that we’re expecting some differences in the salon and spa world thanks to COVID. 
We wanted to gauge how everyone is thinking and feeling about all this, so we put out a poll on our Instagram, asking you all what you expect from beauty salons right now.  

Here’s what you had to say... 


1.    You’re about 50/50 when it comes to heading back 
 


53% of you have returned to the hair salon by now, while 47% of you have not. This makes sense, because every area of the country is different when it comes to cases, closures, and mandates, and every person is different when it comes to risk and safety.  

2.    But if you are going back, you want the "normal" experience

While many hair salons have begun operating outdoors due to government regulations, 58% of you said you’re fine with getting your haircut indoors, while the other 42% are more comfortable keeping it outside.

3.    You aren’t quite comfortable with others in your home 


58% of you said you’d rather go to your hair salon than have your stylist come to you. I get it, home is a safe space, probably shouldn’t let any outsiders in.

4.    You really appreciate your stylists

69% of you said you’re “totally!” going to tip more for services once you start receiving them again. During this time without our stylists and aestheticians, I think we all realized how much we need them and appreciate them, and many of us are willing to show them a little extra gratitude to make up for the time we spent apart.

5.    Some of you are willing to take risks... 


But, most of you aren’t. 56% of you said you have not cut or colored your own or a friend’s hair, because it was too risky, while the other 44% just “had to!”  


6.    Nail salons are a lot less trafficked 


Only 29% of you have returned to nail salons, while the rest are sticking to at-home manicures. Maybe we’re all just getting really good at it? But probably, it’s because a lot of them are still closed down, or because it’s a little more difficult to get a pedicure outdoors (we need our massage chairs!).  


7.   We’ve all noticed (and embraced) the changes

Our last poll question asked about what differences you’ve all noticed when heading back to the salon, and you all had a lot to say...

It’s a beautiful thing to see how the salon and spa community has come together, taken precautions, and adjustments, all so they can continue to help us look and feel our best. If you haven’t spoken to your stylist lately (or even if you have), don’t forget to shoot them a thank you and let them know you appreciate them.
