My adventure at Ella Bliss Beauty Bar

Last month I emceed Daybreaker Denver, an amazing morning dance party extravaganza. I thought, if I’m going to do this, I want to go the whole 9 yards, get my nails done and do something fun with my hair! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try out Ella Bliss Beauty Bar on South Broadway, a place that I’ve driven by several times and finally got the chance to get pampered by their amazing crew.

When I first arrived, I was greeted by the friendly staff, offering me a drink and whatever I might need to make my stay comfortable. Besides being a beauty bar, they also have a BAR BAR… so you can cozy on up with a glass of wine, a cocktail, or something non-alcoholic, like tea or coffee while you have one of their many services done.

Clementine’s Salon Unveils New Location in Stanley Marketplace

Elegant and eclectic salon includes unique offerings for bridal parties, including full-time wedding coordinator and private event space.

Clementine’s Salon, a nationally-recognized salon offering expert hair, makeup and skincare services, today unveiled their new 3,200 square-foot location in Aurora’s Stanley Marketplace, at 2501 Dallas Street on the second level (Suite 269). The new salon was built and customized with bridal parties in mind, and features a private suite with three styling chairs and additional seating for friends, family and guests. An expert wedding coordinator is available full-time to schedule and manage onsite or offsite styling. 

 “We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the opening of our second location. Over the last five years, we’ve grown tremendously and this exciting expansion is the next step on our journey,” said co-founder Dani Everson. “We’ve developed a great reputation for our wedding and bridal styling, so I’m particularly excited to offer a unique space and expert services specially tailored to wedding parties.” 

Clementine’s original location was founded in 2011 by husband and wife Dani and John Everson in Denver’s Lower Highland (LoHi) neighborhood, on the corner of 33rd Avenue and Tejon Street. Named by ELLE Magazine as one of the top 100 hair salons in the country in 2012 and 2015, Clementine’s is known for its focus on continuous education for all stylists and staff. Founders Dani and John Everson regularly send their stylists to Bumble and Bumble University in New York and styling classes in Los Angeles, to provide customers with expert and on-trend services. Dani Everson also hosts onsite classes every six weeks to review new products, teach updo tutorials and showcase new styling techniques. 

“It’s impossible to provide exceptional hair and makeup styling without staying on top of the latest trends and techniques,” said Dani Everson. “Rigorous and ongoing training and education is how our stylists stay ahead of the curve, and keep our customers happy.”

 The new location in Stanley Marketplace is distinguished by its modern and inviting atmosphere. The thoughtful décor features a polished concrete floor and pops of pastel teal and orange. Wood finishes add a rustic touch to the space, while bohemian touches create a hip, eclectic vibe. 

In addition to its design, the new Clementine’s is differentiated by an expanded list of services that goes far beyond those of a typical salon – particularly in the realm of skincare. Clementine’s offers a 30 or 60-minute custom facial, expert chemical peels, full waxing services, and lash or brow tinting. The salon is also the only Denver-based provider of keratin lash lifts – a treatment widely praised by beauty experts for darkening and lifting lashes without adding false strands. And in addition to traditional haircuts, coloring and styling services, Clementine’s also offers balayage – hand-painted highlights for a softer and more diffused look. 

Stanley Marketplace, a 23-acre industrial space converted into a community-focused marketplace, began offering some services in December 2016. The marketplace features more than 50 independently-owned Colorado businesses – including eateries, shops, gyms, workspaces, breweries, event spaces and more. For wedding and bridal parties, Stanley Marketplace is a one-stop shop – offering an onsite florist, wine store and numerous restaurants – making it possible to arrange catering, order flowers, purchase spirits and complete hair styling in one convenient location. 

In addition to wedding and bridal party styling, the private event space at Clementine’s Stanley Marketplace location is also available for continuing education classes, traveling stylists, photo shoots, pre-event prepping, team-building events and private parties. The suite accommodates 10 to 15 people. 

To celebrate the launch, Clementine’s hosted a grand opening celebration at the new location on April 8, 2017 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. This event was free and open to the public, and featured a DJ, braid bar, a nail technician from Base Coat Nail Salon, wine from The Infinite Monkey Theorem and hors d’oeuvres. The first 50 guests will receive a gift bag including items from Clementine’s product lines and gifts from other businesses at Stanley Marketplace. A raffle for free services will also be offered, including a free color/cut, a HydraFacial, items from Velvet Wolf, Sterre Denver, True Holistic Boutique, and more. Attendees can RSVP for the grand opening celebration on Facebook here

6 Ways To Shake Up Your Look in 2017

6 Ways To Shake Up Your Look in 2017

Trend In Action: Real Style Network: Smokey Lilac Sizzles

Dani Everson, Founder of Clementine’s Salon

1) Metallic-Inspired Hair

Pastel and neon colors are still around but now they are accompanied by a more muted and subtle color palette, mimicking a metallic look. Where there was pink hair now it’s a dusty rose, where we used to see blue now it’s now steel, purple has now been taken over by smokey lilac.

2)Bangs!
Bangs are tried and true, yet they never really go out of style. For 2017, the longer curtain-like bangs seem to be making a comeback. Celebrity stylist Kristin Ess has even been showcasing the best way to make “faux bangs” for gals that fear next-day bang regrets.

3) Blunt But Textured Bobs
Anh Co Tran has made waves in the hair industry with his blunt haircuts, but yet he still incorporates so much movement. As a stylist, I can tell you that every stylist I know has had an Anh Co Tran style shown as inspiration for a client in the chair.

Trend In Action: Glamour UK: Bedhead Braids

4) Loose Braids
The bohemian look is back in a major way for 2017, and it’s an easy, second-day style for many different hair types. My personal favorites are hidden braids and fishtails. Braids are here to stay!

Trend In Action: StyleCaster: Thick Eyebrows in Hollywood

5) Full Brows
Gone are the days of agonizing over plucking. We’re seeing the end of super-detailed precise brows, in favor of much more untouched, fuller shapes. This is a natural, low-maintenance, and incredibly sexy look for 2017.

6)High-Impact Lashes!
Eyelashes have been a focus area since the dawn of makeup. But we’re now seeing much more creative and effective ways to make lashes really pop. With lash extensions, lash perms, and Keratin lash lifts (which are actually only offered to Denverites in one spot – my salon, Clementine’s), we are noticing a new way to get those peepers noticed.
