If you’re a local Colorado gal, you’re going to go nuts for the coolest new place to hit the Denver scene: Ella Bliss Beauty Bar.
As a busy Mom, I hardly have time (or finances, honestly and realistically) to pamper myself at a day spa. Sure, I’d love to be able to justify a $100+ facial, and my skin would thank me, but to speak frankly, I consider it a good day if I manage to sneak in a shower that doesn’t involve me making faces through my glass shower door and singing the ABC’s with my 2 year old while I haphazardly attempt to shave my legs after a restful 4 hours of night time sleep. Keeping it real, right?
That is why I absolutely fell in love with Ella Bliss Beauty Bar. I really feel that they are keeping it real on a daily basis, as well. Ella Bliss offers a variety of different luxurious treatments, while catering to the everyday lady (and Mom!) by making it manageable and affordable to treat yourself regularly, without it turning into an all day affair.
With services such as hair blowouts, facials, manicures/pedicures, and massages, there really is something for every woman available, and it’s such an easy and ingenious solution to deserving a bit of “Mommy Time” away from the kiddos every month.
What is Ella Bliss?
Ella Bliss is “Not a Spa, Not a Salon…it’s a way of life.” It’s a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs. It’s a place where you can get a fab hair blowout, and an amazing pedicure, all under one roof, without having to go to 10 different places. It’s paired with a great atmosphere, amazing talented staff, and a full bar. Yes, you heard me correctly.
Members receive a complimentary beverage! I sampled the “Bubbles & Bliss” drink, and I’ve been craving it pretty much ever since. It was amazing.
If you can spare an hour out of your schedule every month, I promise you it will be the best hour ever. The convenient membership status allows you to book a signature service every month, and also comes with some pretty amazing other benefits as well. You can choose whichever service you’d like each and every month.
Have a hot date night planned? Try the fabulous blowout! Are you dealing with some postpartum hormonal skin changes? Book yourself a relaxing facial! Manicures and pedicures are also a fun service (and cost effective! The nail salon I typically go to charges more, and the atmosphere isn’t anywhere near as posh and fun!)
I was able to go check out a couple services for myself, to get a hand-on feel for what Ella Bliss is about. I started with a Signature Facial from esthetician, Kristen. She was courteous, and really went out of her way to make me feel comfortable, since it had been
ages a while since my last facial. She examined my skin, and applied a variety of luxury, moisturizing products. While the first mask hardened under steam, she even gave me a relaxing foot massage. I left with silky skin that was vibrant and full of moisture.
I then was able to try out a blowout for myself. Aside from my hair stylist styling my hair after a hair cut, I had never experienced how amazing a blowout truly is. It starts with a relaxing head massage and hair washing. Then, each section of hair is meticulously blow dried with a roller brush, and then styled. My hair looked shiny, and so, so chic!
To speak candidly, my hair is a giant grease ball, however, I went two whole days without washing my hair, and it looked just as good on day two, as it did the day I got it done. You can see above, I chose to have soft curls which they refer to as the “bombshell,” and I felt just that.
Talk about a lifesaver for busy moms, eh?
Every single person was so nice, and one of the owners even came out to personally introduce herself and took the time to get to know me and my family. There are two sisters that own Ella Bliss, so if you prefer to “shop local” rather than a chain, this is the perfect option for you. Right now, there is one location in Greenwood Village, and the owners also hope to expand into the Highlands Ranch and Downtown Area soon.
Kelly, the owner, would like me to also pass on some specials available:
- Book a Signature Service M-W from 10-3 and receive a FREE upgrade! This is a $20 value for free!
- Sign up for a membership and receive a free Signature Service to use whenever you choose!
- Purchase a gift card for $45 or more and receive a free Signature Blowout or Makeup application!
- We will have last minute Valentine’s Gifts through the weekend! Gift card packages, jewelry, bubble bath, fragrances, etc!
I’m already planning my return to Ella Bliss, and am hopefully going to return with a group of girlfriends to celebrate my upcoming Dirty 30 birthday in style. Who wants to come with me?! Trust me, you’ll love Ella Bliss, and their way of life.
