After stylists Angi Snodgrass and Cathy Sturm opened their salon, they dubbed it the Cass & Company Salon to foreground the importance of their entire team. The tight-knit crew, designated level 4 to level 1 stylists, hone their techniques at workshops held across the country and even teach new talent on site.
Within the chic space, the stylists cut, color, and retexturize locks, fortifying strands with helpings of Benniefactor, Reference of Sweden, and Gage for Men products. They do their work next to the salon?s sleek grey walls and under a ceiling lofty enough to allow someone to fly a kite beneath it. Elsewhere in the salon, technicians perform body waxes, and massage therapists administer deep-tissue massages in private rooms.

So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for?fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer theTake Away Fresh Caf?, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
