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 work 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.

WHETHER HIKING OR BIKING, CLIMBING OR JUST GAZING, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH COLORADO BEAUTY RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR

The Trail Season Roxborough State Park

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY SHANNON WALSH

Parker Lifestyle | July 2019


GROWING UP IN THE FRONT RANGE, MY PARENTS NEVER TOOK ME INTO THE MOUNTAINS. The mountains were there to direct me on which way was West. It wasn't until I went to Fort Lewis College in Durango in the '90s that I truly got a taste of all the trails offered. When I had to move back home after college for a “real” job, I thought I’d lost the opportunity to surround myself in nature without having to get in a car and drive an hour. Then, I started playing on the trails in my own backyard, not knowing how much the nearby areas had to offer. We live in an area where we can be lost in the woods in less than 30 miles from our city center. Yes, the Denver metro trails have gotten pretty busy over the years, but the gems are still out there, especially on the south end of town. Black Bear near Chatfield just opened last summer and connects Hildebrand to Deer Creek. And although I’m selfishly bummed that it’s closed for summer months due to raptor nesting, it’s for raptor nesting—absolutely amazing. This spring, as I sat on top of the rock formations in Castlewood Canyon with my husband and daughter, after a late afternoon of rock climbing, we were able to lay our bodies on the heated rocks and watch the turkey vultures circle above us. The exploration of the wilderness will not be unique to my daughter’s childhood, but an integral part of it. My passion for the past 20 years has been mountain biking these trails, and now that I have family and friends who don’t necessarily love the bike like I do, I’m exposed yet again to the beautiful wilderness that has been placed before me with more to discover; while pushing a stroller, looking through a car window, hiking, biking  or being attached to a rope, here we are. Colorado, your beauty has me.

ROXBOROUGH STATE PARK A south Denver gem, Roxborough State Park offers crazy-beautiful red-rock formations and public trails for hiking and single-track biking. Roxborough is a Colorado Natural Area and a National Natural Landmark in west Douglas County that encompasses almost 4,000 acres. Bring your camera. At the Fountain Valley Overlook, which is only 100 yards from the Visitor Center, you’ll find views of the Fountain Formation, Lyons Formation and the Dakota Hogback. Be on the lookout for black bears, mule deer and red fox.

THE TRAIL SEASON

(CON TI N U ED)

Indian Creek

2. INDIAN CREEK TRAIL IN PIKE NATIONAL FOREST Eleven miles west of Sedalia in Douglas County, Indian Creek Trailhead offers high-altitude hiking and biking just outside the city. You’ll find beautiful views of meadows, wildflowers, a horse camp and even a view of the western mountains that will take your breath away. The Colorado Trail connects to Indian Creek, so your options are near limitless. Expect to still see snow in June and very few people.

Parker Lifestyle | July 2019


Green Mountain

GREEN MOUNTAIN TRAIL Green Mountain is a great trail with various distances to hike or bike. It’s easily accessible and an excellent choice if your time is limited or you’re new to mountain biking. The trail is fairly dry throughout the year, so it’s great for all seasons.

Castlewood Canyon

4. CASTLEWOOD CANYON STATE PARK Castlewood Canyon is easy to find, a few miles east of Interstate 25 near Franktown. It’s a state park with an $8 daily pass fee. The park is easily accessible for family hikes and picnics. This often overlooked gem is great for hiking, but also the unique rock formations make for a climber’s playground as well. The breathtaking solitude of the plains stretching out to the east and the stunning canyon give the feel of the best that Colorado offers. July 2019 | Parker Lifestyle

RENOVATE & REFINE

MASTER BATH REMODEL CREATES LARGER, MORE FUNCTIONAL SHOWER WITH SOAKER TUB FOR ADDED LUXURY

Designing an Oasis ARTICLE JENNIFER STARBUCK PHOTOGRAPHY NITA TORREY

THE FOCAL POINT OF THIS CASTLE ROCK MASTER BATH BUILT IN THE EARLY 2000S HAD BEEN THE MASSIVE JACUZZI TUB WITH ITS BULKY SURROUND, SOMETHING THE CURRENT OWNERS JUST DIDN’T USE THAT OFTEN. Designers Alexis Rubin and Kristina Stack of Denver Design Group wanted to keep the bath a luxurious, albeit smaller, feature and to expand the footprint of the shower to create a daily oasis. “For some reason, in bathrooms built in this era, the bath was huge and the shower was tiny. The modern bathroom now emphasizes the shower because that’s what we use most often. We made this one light, bright and inviting,” Alexis says.  The expanded shower features a frameless surround with marble wildflower accent tile, built-in bench seating and a rainhead faucet. The soaker tub features a crystal chandelier with gorgeous views of the mountains. “One of the things the homeowner talked a lot about was wanting to soak in her free-standing tub with a glass of wine and having this relaxing space where she could go to escape everything else,” Alexis says. The designers say they love the mix of materials. The warm vanity ties into the wood floors in the master bedroom, while the sleek Porcelansosa flooring and wall tiles give the look of marble with the durability of porcelain.  24
