7 Ways to Transformation: Denver Edition

 

It’s beauty. It’s wellness. It’s engaging in anything that makes you feel happy and whole. The journey to transformation begins the moment you put in the effort. At the end of the day, it comes down to you, but we’d be lying if we said it didn’t require help. Traveling in particular has the power to transform us. Wherever we go, we love to experience what the city has to offer. Being that we like to think of ourselves as experts in beauty and wellness, we want to highlight hotspots that align with our interests. What better place to start then right in our home town of Denver? It’s time to check a few places off your bucket list.

Whether you’re a local or whether you’re just visiting the beautiful city of Denver, there are so many hidden gems for those of you looking to experience places outside the typical tourist spots.

American Cultures

If you’ve wanted to get into the new kombucha craze, then American Cultures is the perfect place to start. Located in The Highlands neighborhood, American Cultures serves a bevy of kombucha drinks. Designed in the style of your local hipster brewery, they make healthy drinks seem fun. We recommend trying their kombucha flight where you can pick four different flavors to try. Your gut just got a lot happier.

Facial Aesthetics

We’re not even sure if we can say we’re bias here (well, maybe a little bit!). The truth about the Facial Aesthetics team is that they’re a powerhouse in the med spa business. They’re wrinkle warriors, skin care gurus and sculpting specialists. There’s a reason why they’re the most experienced practice in Colorado ( in business for over 25 years). With two locations in Denver and Greenwood Village, Colorado’s elite medical spa, Facial Aesthetics, is your one stop shop for injectables, skin care treatments/products, and CoolSculpting.

Cherry Creek North

If you’re looking to shop until you drop, Cherry Creek is the place to be. With a number of stores and restaurants, this well-known district of Denver has it all. You can shop for Chanel at Neiman Marcus, or get your nails done at Fifth Avenue Nail Salon. Then end your day eating a juicy burger at the Cricket. We honestly can’t think of a more perfect day.

Antoine Du Chez

There is nothing that feels more instantly transformative than a new hairstyle. We know that someone’s relationship with their hairstylist is an intimate thing. Whether you’re looking for a new look or a blow out for the night out on the town, this salon provides nothing but great service and talent.

Fancy Tiger

Denver has tried to keep the South Broadway Shopping District on the down low for awhile now, but the secret is out. That is in part due to the popularity of hip boutiques like Fancy Tiger. The store was originally opened with the aim to sell clothing and accessories made by local designers. Since then, they have also opened a sister store that focuses on crafting. It’s one of our favorite places to buy a cute bag or a unique gift for a loved one.

Larimer Square

Denver’s oldest block combines it’s wild west roots with a modern flare. Founded in 1858 after the Colorado gold rush, the square was just as much a social hub then as it is now. You can enjoy shopping during the day and dine out at night. For all our beauty junkies out there, we recommend checking out Wax+Lash studio. The studio’s owner, Tawnya Hutchinsons, boasts that she is the fastest waxer in the west.

Havana Health Spa

This next spot might be a bit outside of Denver, but it’s well worth a quick drive. If you want to experience a traditional Korean Spa without the expensive plane ticket to Seoul, then Havana Health Spa is the perfect place to visit. Located on Havana Street in Aurora, the Korean style spa includes a Mud Room, Dry Room, Steam Sauna, and three different pools of various temperatures. Our favorite room, however, would have to be the Crystal Room. There you will be able to lounge in a room with amethyst crystals formed into the shape of the Rocky Mountains. What could be more Colorado than that?
