On most days, I forget to put on makeup. I have one lipstick. I don't own foundation. In short, I'm not the target audience for LoDo's newest watering hole, Fluff Bar .
The joint is part salon and part saloon, meaning that you can sip bubbly while getting a blowout before a big night out. The modern, all-white interior looks more like a club than a spot you'd get your hair and makeup done, which is exactly why the concept works. This isn't a place for a ho-hum haircut; this is the spot to get ready for a big night out.
Which was why I was perched on a stool getting my eye makeup ($25) done last Friday. I had a night of holiday celebrating ahead of me, and I wanted to look, well, dolled up. I was still a little nervous, and swore that if the stylist pulled out fake eyelashes, I'd bolt for the door.
The stylist took a good look at my face and said that she was going to do a natural smoky eye without too much goop (my word, not hers). I almost hugged her. Less than 20 minutes later, she'd done just that. The look was light, but definitely a showstopper. She even gave me tips about applying mascara to my fine lower lid eyelashes. I was hooked: I'm booking an appointment at Fluff Bar before every big night out, because it turns out that I am the target audience.
