Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

It is increasingly rare in Denver to see signs in which the letters visually represent what they actually spell. In the sign pictured above, the purse-lipped beauty looking demurely over her shoulder (well, at least with one eye) is sporting a new letterhead hairdo that literally looks as easy to maintain as it is to read...

A few anatomical irregularities depicted in the portrait on the Hairworks sign suggests the painter may have skipped art school and learned her craft between appointments at the hair salon. But neither the too-high ear nor the neck shading detract from the exceptional originality of the sign. It looks as if the character is looking over her shoulder between snips to tell us that walk-ins are welcome!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
