A First Look at Denver's New "Wellness Marketplace"

Fitness
Massage

Denver is packed with food halls and community marketplaces that focus on locally-crafted food and retail. And while they tend to give a nod to the healthy lifestyle, there hasn’t been one that focuses specifically on wellness. That is, until now. Denver, meet Nurture

A La Carte Self-Care 

Inspired by the success of the food hall concept, Nurture co-founders Kelly Campbell, Nikki Dority, and Peter Strauss wanted to create a space where Denver’s health-conscious crowd could eat, sweat, relax, and shop—a space where you can be nurtured in every sense of the word, all under one roof.  

Nurture is taking over a former school at 2949 Federal Blvd. in the Highlands. Come early 2020, the two-story, 20,000-square-foot building will be filled with vendors focused on all things wellness. There’ll be everything from acupuncture to massage along with holistically-minded beauty services and eco-friendly retail. A cafe will serve up healthy bites and a juice bar will press fresh sips.  

It’s a place you’ll want to stay awhile, and they’re making it easy to do just that with lockers, showers, and even childcare on site for all to use. To add to the convenience, Nurture will also have its own app. You’ll be able to use it to book classes and services but also to order ahead food and drink. Have your favorite protein smoothie ready after your workout or order a cold brew coffee before you leave your house so that you can be ready to sip while you shop.

Feel The Rhythm 

Nurture will be anchored by local cycling studio Rhythm Revolution. The brainchild of DJ and fitness guru Jasmine Anderson, Rhythm Revolution is a beat-based movement concept that spent several years spinning both wheels and records in a Park Hill studio, as well as at special events and retreats. With the end of the lease for the Park Hill studio on the horizon, the opportunity to join the Nurture community presented itself, and Jasmine jumped. Closing the doors on Park Hill, she was drawn to the unique concept and collaborative environment of the marketplace. “The owners have a deep-seeded belief in teamwork and elevating each other,” Jasmine told us. “Their vision aligns so well with what I’m doing with Rhythm Revolution and I’m just so excited to be part of it.” 

Rhythm Revolution will comprise approximately 1,100 square feet of Nurture’s space and will offer the same lineup of classes that have afforded them such a following—hard-hitting cycling set to heavy beats, either alone or paired with yoga, HIIT, or strength training. You can expect a sweet sound system and intense lighting to add to the full-body and fully-immersive experience. 

As of today, Nurture hasn't set an official opening date, but you can stay up to date on their progress—and some sneak peeks of their vendors—on Instagram

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.
