During more than a quarter century at the helm of LookAfter Hair Company, Peter Hall has seen the styling industry gradually split in two directions—toward the high-end salon and toward the in-and-out fast cut place. With LookAfter, Peter decided to close that gap. There, guests can get premium salon services on a walk-in basis and haircuts from stylists who will gladly slow down for careful consultations instead of racing through trims with stopwatches in their hands. The name LookAfter is meant to reflect this blend and to demonstrate his vision for a place where the staff stands ready to serve all clients, whether they need keratin treatments, eyebrow waxes, or beard trims. This approach has helped LookAfter grow to more than 40 locations across St. Louis, Kansas City, and central Illinois, and the idea has also led to ongoing community outreach. Stylists have helped raise money for disaster relief, support breast-cancer awareness, and generate funds for veterans’ programs by carrying haircare products from American Warrior.
The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
As my customer, you can create your ideal beauty experience. I offer personalized service that fits you. Just tell me if you’d like a one-on-one consultation, a party with friends, a virtual party, makeup tips or skin care advice. If you prefer to shop online only or order by e-mail or phone, the choice is yours.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
The Loft is a vintage decorated salon with a very antique feeling. Its location is in a strip of stores in downtown East Peoria. I rent a room out of the salon that has the same decoration flow of the rest of the salon. We have a giant window in the front that we decorate with each season! Check pictures out for more!
Sun Seekers Tanning's beds and body-wrap systems use ultraviolet and infrared energy rays to beautify clients. Inside, Soltech and Sun Star tanning beds emit UV rays in varying intensities to bronze users' skin without hours of sitting in the sun. Infrared body wraps help draw toxins from the skin and tone the body, which can lead to weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Sun Seekers Tanning also offers massage services.
