The Dream Starts Here! We are the ultimate instructional school for all things BEAUTY, from COSMETOLOGY to ESTHETICS and MORE!

What makes the

BEAUTIFUL

Difference?

• Our students are our #1 customers! • We are growing people not businesses. Our passion for our students' success drives us to be the best. • A luxury salon atmosphere instead of an institutional environment creates an elevated, real life learning experience. • We produce career ready students, not apprentice ready students. • A low Student to Teacher ratio allows for immersive learning and individualized development. • We teach multiple product lines so our students graduate with confidence and the skill set to start their careers. Stacey James Institute also gives back to the community by participating in many non-profit events and as a valued student, you can take part in this culture. Our learning environment mimics the real-world salon experience so our students are fully prepared upon graduation to start their career. Our educators go through constant continuing education so they are able to pass their extensive experience on to our students.

get their hands on. So it is with much excitement that we present you, dear reader, with our own localized fashion issue—Parker-style. For our annual fall fashion photo shoot, we went to Blue Sky Aviation Gallery at Exploration of Flight to showcase some of the season’s hottest looks for guys, modeled by Parker's own Derrick White. These looks will keep our men flying high, just like Derrick, San Antonio Spurs guard and recently promoted member of Team USA's FIBA World Cup roster. We also offer some beautiful accessories from artisans around the world that support anti-trafficking efforts. Then hit the road with Parker Lifestyle's publisher and owner, Jeni Fleck, and her husband, Zach, as they bike through some of the most magnificent—and sometimes heart-stopping—landscapes the West has to offer.

But according to Roxborough State Park Manager Ben Vinci, bikes are not allowed on the trails. “While there is a county road and a U.S. Forest Service trail that has an easement through the back part of our property where biking is allowed, it is prohibited on the designated trails within our

Wear Love Wagon ARTISANS AROUND THE WORLD SHARE THEIR WARES WHILE ASHLEE TELLS THEIR STORY

SOMEWHERE IN A LOCAL FARMERS MARKET, 21-YEAR-OLD ASHLEE NAWROCKI STANDS OUTSIDE HER NONPROFIT WEAR LOVE WAGON TRAILER, TALKING TO SHOPPERS ABOUT THE HANDMADE JEWELRY, HANDBAGS AND ACCESSORIES SHE IS SELLING TO SUPPORT ANTI-TRAFFICKING ORGANIZATIONS. “I’m so thankful for every customer that comes in and wants to learn about how they can be a piece of the solution,” Ashlee says. The idea for Ashlee’s Wear Love Wagon mobile boutique all started in 2016 when she was on a mission trip with Youth With a Mission in Nepal and met an 8-year-old who had been trafficked. Ashlee says that experience completely broke her heart. Ashlee then decided to “start something that can just shed a light and also be a solution,” she says. Ashlee works with mostly women—and some men—artisans

finds for a magazine fashion photo shoot. By the look on Derrick’s face, he’s a bit uncomfortable. Derrick’s longtime coach, Marcus Mason, who is attending today’s photo shoot, says it figures. Derrick has always been laser-focused on his goals, which means basketball. “I’ve worked with a lot of kids and seen them grow up, and I can tell you Derrick’s always been mature,” Marcus says. The owner of Nothing But Net Elite Basketball Coaching in Parker, Marcus first started coaching Derrick when the 25-year-old was in seventh grade. Whereas some professional athletes or newfound celebrities would bask in the spotlight, Marcus says, Derrick just wants to know when they’re hitting the gym. By now, Derrick’s rising-star story has been well told: The Legend High School basketball player, overlooked by NCAA Division I schools, spent the first three years of college playing for DII University of Colorado – Colorado Springs. With grit, determination and leader performance at UCCS—along with an extra five inches of height after high school—Derrick was able to transfer to the University of Colorado. Shortly thereafter, in 2017, Derrick became the first-round, 29th draft pick for the San Antonio Spurs. “It’s been a blessing to play in the NBA and be a part of the Spurs,” Derrick says. “Reaching a dream that you had when you were growing up, it’s truly a blessing.” Derrick credits his family for any success he’s had. “They still live in Parker, in the same house that I grew up in. My parents are incredible. They’ve supported me in everything that I’ve done and been there and loved me throughout. They are the best role models I could ask for,” Derrick says. Right now, Derrick is enjoying some downtime at home after his name-making success in the Spurs’ playoffs. Derrick scored 36 points on 15-of-21 shooting in Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets. But that Game 1 dunk against the Nuggets’ Paul Millsap? It made T-shirt status with its “Dunk It Like Derrick” slogan. Go ahead, YouTube it. Derrick, who was already gearing up to play on Team USA’s junior team, got called up on Aug. 9 to fill a vacancy on the senior team in advance of the FIBA Basketball World Cup in China, yet another measure of Derrick’s rising-star status. Marcus says that through it all, Derrick has stayed the same. Even at barely 6 feet tall and being passed over by virtually all programs out of high school, Derrick kept hustling, never becoming disgruntled or blaming others, Marcus says. “He’s unwavering,” Marcus says. “His inner willingness to be great is something I’ve never experienced before.”
