• What inspired you want to be a business owner?
After a long corporate career working for some of the biggest companies in the world, I was inspired to create my own company. My aim was to create a place where people, especially women, love to spend time. Hopefully, I’ve done that with this business which is also run by women.
• How did you get your start in the spa industry?
Creating Glosshouz was a labor of love. It was a long and exciting journey to finally get to opening day just this last May. Many months went into spa research, looking all over Denver for the perfect spot, drawing and re-drawing the space until it was just right, and planning the vast amount of details that are required to create the spa experience at Glosshouz. We hope this planning now enables our guest to be very comfortable and relaxed, to enjoy the convenience of a variety of services all in one place, and to be unexpectedly delighted at the details that set us apart from the rest.
• How long have you been in business?
We opened on Mother’s Day May 8th, 2016.
• What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part of the job, as General Manager for Glosshouz, is meeting new people every day! It’s always so exciting to talk to each new person that walks through the door. You never know who you are going to meet. I just love that part of it! Also, we love the whole behind-the-scenes operations to make sure the experience for the client is just right.
• How would you describe your style?
Glosshouz style is all white, clean, crisp, and ultra modern which caters to a feminine taste.
• What type of client is best suited for you?
All types! Anyone who would like to receive expert personal care services in a lovely environment would love to come to Glosshouz. We offer everything from hair and nails to massage and medical spa and everything in between!
• If you met with a bride and groom and literally had ONE minute to tell them why they should use your company, what would you say?
We have the perfect bridal getting-ready place, and we do it all very well!
• What would previous clients say was the main reason they chose your company?
Our clients say they love our top-rated customer service, our unprecedented variety of personal care services offered all in one place and they love how clean and white everything is.
• What sets you apart from other vendors in your category?
The fact that we offer such an extensive variety of services and extra amenities to enjoy.
• How far in advance should couples contact you to start their planning with you?
Glosshouz can typically accommodate appointment requests with one or two days’ notice. On the other hand, we may need a week or two to accommodate long spa days for multiple people or multiple services for larger parties.
• What tips or advice can you give couples planning their big day?
If you’re having a bachelorette party, this is a great place to get ready! We offer champagne and other beverages to help celebrate. In planning for the wedding, we recommend that the bride and her party plan on scheduling trial runs of hair, makeup and any other needed services up to one month before the big day. Glosshouz party room is able to be reserved in advance to hold a mini bridal shower (up to 12 people) while you come to do trial run services with us. Also, Glosshouz ladies’ lounge has lockers and vanity seating to accommodate up to six girls at once. You can even change into your formal attire and get completely ready here as a group before going on to your special event. We can also accommodate up to six girls for a commemorative spa day complete with lunch served in the relax room.
• Any other info you’d like to share about your company?
Glosshouz body wraps are a super indulgent and also rather effective service. Whether you need to detox, moisturize, or lose an inch or two or cellulite before your big day, we have a body treatment for you. Body wraps are performed in the wet room. We first exfoliate the skin on your body limb-by-limb, then we remove it with steamed towels. Next the wrap treatment product of your choice is applied. You are then wrapped up like a cocoon, while the product works its magic and during this time, you’ll receive a nice head, hand and foot massage. After 20 mins, we remove the product mostly with steamed towels again and then do a final rinse right on the table. After, you are invited to take a Soaking Spa Bath Bliss service in the same room. For this, you are able to create your own bath experience by choosing off our “Bath Menu”, a selection between Aromatherapy Bath, Sore Muscle Soak Bath, Library of Flowers Skin Softening Bath Milk, French Bubble Bath and more! We also offer Body Treatments complete with Spa Bath for couples!
