Dr. David Hadden of O'fallon Crossing Chiropractic fixes his attention on all that ails his clientele, leveraging advanced chiropractic techniques and cold-laser technology to mollify physical concerns. Evaluating each patient as a whole rather than a composite of Legos, the doc considers bone and joint issues as well as muscle and movement woes before deploying treatments. Pains caused by workplace injuries or auto accidents are no match for the back-adjustor as he couples activator-adjusting techniques with myofascial release and functional rehab treatments. In a Lipolaser treatment room outfitted with a plush treatment bed, the laser technician whisks away unwanted fatty acids and glycerol inside fat cells, helping clients achieve figures that turn heads, raise eyebrows or completely dismember Mr. Potato Heads.
Hollywood Tan's 11 locations help Midwesterners stay tan year-round—even under their parkas. They accomplish this using equipment such as standup capsules, tanning beds, and Mystic Tan booths. Off to the side, lotions stand at attention on shelves, ready to help clients maintain their tan and keep their skin moisturized.
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.
