A Note from the Owners...

Hello, and welcome to Glow Salon and Spa!  We are Lorie Cooper and Christy Rusch, sisters and 3rd generation "Estes Parkians".  We purchased Glow in July of 2019 and have taken what was already "Extra" to the "Extraordinary" by expending to become Estes Park's ONLY Full Service Salon and Spa.  

Our passion is customer service - Lorie after working in the special events industry for over 35 years as a "Fairy Godmother Extraodinare" as a wedding planner and event designer, and Christy with over 15 years experience in the salon industry and also in the events business along side of Lorie.

Our goal is to provide our Estes Park locals and visitors with an exceptional level of service, a relaxing atmosphere, a place to relax and unwind and to spend a little time on one's SELF.  We look forward to meeting each of our customers in person, and look forward to continuing to grow and GLOW!!
