The honeydew-colored walls of Performance Salon & Color Spa enclose an assemblage of hair, skin, and nail services executed with professional product lines including Paul Mitchell and Bed Head. The first option assails follicles with scissors guided by stylists Rachel, Soad, or Heather, and 10 foils' worth of natural sunkiss highlights that inject vibrant hues extracted from the sun in a method similar to snake-venom harvesting before daubs of wax streamline brows. The keratin blowout treatment coaxes curls out of locks with a trionic keratin protein and a co-polymer delivery system and a high-pitched whistle, evicting superfluous frizz from all types of hair for up to six weeks.
The team of stylists and licensed aestheticians at Savvy Suites Salon all share the same love for beautifying their clients, but tout a wide variety of backgrounds and specialties. Kristina Murray, a certified PCA skincare specialist, customizes facial treatments, while Laurie Gebhart turns to her status as a certified Redken colorist when illuminating guests' locks. Regardless of the staff member helping them, every patron can rest assured that their beauty is in good hands, whether they're looking to remove unwanted body hair or keep lycanthropy at bay via waxing, get their tress sculpted into an elegant updo, or polish and shape their nails with a manicure.
Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.
True to its location on the second and third floors of Firehouse Place, All Seasons Salon and Day Spa elevates minds and bodies with nature-inspired spa treatments. Goldwell and Aveda products line the shelves in a reception area whose floral décor vies for attention with the purses, clothes, shoes, and handcrafted Elle Cosmetics peeking out from the designer boutique area next door. Back in the pedicure nook, toes take baths in basins of warm water before shedding their calluses and ferrying their owners to one of the nearby manicure stations, where technicians brush fingernails with vibrant OPI polishes. Soft candle lights flicker against the walls of private aesthetic and massage rooms, while out on the salon floor stylists revivify hair with custom European coloring techniques. During the wedding season, the spa’s team tends to more than 75 bridal parties, painting nails, styling strands, and dipping drab white dresses in their vibrant hair dyes.
TJ Hair-Nail & Spa’s signature massage combats stress with essential oils and heated river stones, creating the same relaxing mood that pervades the team’s other treatments. Whether they are pampering locks with custom color and face-flattering cuts, or waxing away unwanted stubble, they try to separate their services from day-to-day concerns. Even their manicures and pedicures can incorporate extras more relaxing than a songbird fanning you with sheet music, such as hot-stone massage, salt scrubs, and moisturizing paraffin wax.
