The highly trained stylists at Bounce Salon tame unruly manes with swift, precise snips and extensive training with Moroccanoil and Pravana color products. After a brief consultation to determine the client?s desired look, they shear away split ends, imbue tresses with all-over or partial color and highlights, or fight frizz with straightening blowouts, ultimately helping strands attract positive attention instead of negatively charged balloons. When needed, Bounce's staff plucks blow dryers from where they hang on the ceiling, just as they extract unwanted bristles during various waxing services.
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.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city?s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location?s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
If you ask Jodi Hudson the secret to running a successful hair salon, you might find her answer refreshingly simple: hair. Hudson, who spent 15 years teasing 'dos at other froufrou salons full of bells and whistles, decided to focus strictly on haircare when she opened Lakeview Hair Salon in 2004.
The basic goal of taming, nourishing, and shaping hair goes into everything Hudson does at her salon, from assembling a staff of skilled friseurs to stocking the shelves with top-notch products, such as Aquage and Paul Mitchell. And well-rounded haircare means that eyebrow waxing, perms, and bridal updos shaped like hairbrushes are also on the menu.
Licensed and nationally accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences, the schools of Missouri College and Cosmetology welcome students to learn the crafts of cosmetology and esthetics. In turn, students then welcome customers for walk-in salon services and by-appointment spa services. They beautify hair with cuts, perms, and color treatments, wax off unwanted body hair, and anoint fingers and toes with polish.
The staff at Shear-Lock Combs West takes the mystery of out fixing hair and skin issues. Scissors tear through split ends and unwanted length in a single snip, and facials gently erase acne and fine lines. The beauty pros also apply glamorous makeup that can last through weddings, dances, and triathlons. In addition to this meticulous attention to the face, Shear-Lock ensures the rest of the body isn't neglected with a host of full-body treatments. They offer chair and full-body massages, waxing for the bikini zone and legs, and give skin a sun-kissed glow with custom spray-tan formulas.
