Any excuse to make a day trip to Cherry Creek is a good one, and now that PūrLuxe Beauty Bar is open you can add a nail or skincare treatment to your plans.
Unlike a number of traditional salons, PūrLuxe is free of toxic chemicals and has a mission to offer clients a new form of beauty treatments in a health-conscience environment.
Owner Tuyen Vo opened PūrLuxe in the Steele Creek building, next to Matsuhisa Denver. The space feels clean, luxurious and modern, yet pleasantly inviting and comfortable. The pedicure I received this past summer was very relaxing and professional, with results that lasted far beyond most pedicures I generally get. I’m not exaggerating when I share that I didn’t even have one chip on my toenails for over a month.
PūrLuxe’s mantra to “Indulge in Beauty” coincides with their pursuit to carry the best organic polish brands such as: Dior, Chanel, Smith & Cult, Spa Ritual, LVX,Essie, CND, SNS, Zoya, OPI and Butter London, as well as organic skincare lineslike Osmosis, Lira Clinical and Jan Marini. As another sweet addition, the salon uses sugar wax for sensitive-skin for their waxing services.
All the services offered use the latest technology in skincare, including LED light therapy, microcurrents and oxygen blasts. PūrLuxe’s menu of services is extensive, from nails to facials, micro-blading, make-up application, eye-lash extensions, micro-needling, micro-dermabrasion and waxing. The salon’s estheticians also can accommodate private group bookings for bridal, birthday or corporate parties, as well as provide mini-services such as nails, facials and eye-lash extensions for any off-site gathering.
