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 skilled staffers at Belleza Salon transmogrify pale skin into golden silk using a precise combination of the TANS spray-tanning solution and sunny disposition. Special tanning tents encase clients during the personal pigmentation process, emulating human-sized cocoons when newly bronzed bodies emerge ready to pollinate beaches with confidence and dance moves. An all-natural blend of sugar cane and bronzer, the TANS solution is alcohol-free, contains SPF 15, and tastes great when liberally applied to ice cream. Containing antioxidants and no harsh chemicals, the TANS spray solution works well for most skin types and imbues radiance that lasts approximately 7 to 10 days.
Don't let the name of The Blonde Salon and Spa fool you?this beauty hotspot caters to every hair color, not to mention every client's beauty needs. A staff of 30 stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists treat patrons to a range of services, from pixie cuts, highlights, and keratin-bond hair extensions to makeup lessons, brow tinting, and waxing. And that's just the beginning. Also at the salon and spa, patrons can skip the sunbathing and get a custom airbrush tan with the natural-looking Norvell solution, or rejuvenate their skin with Bioelements facials. They can also relax with a Swedish massage or embellish nails with classic, Shellac, and acrylic mani-pedis.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
At the intimate Mabista Salon & Spa, licensed professionals float around the intimate space, leading customers to cushy black chairs for Shellac manicures or ushering them into private treatment rooms for waxing services and warm bamboo massages. They administer a sweeping array of specialty facials, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating skin with refining masks, exfoliating sea salts, and advanced Phytomer skincare products.
