It would be easy to pass an entire week at Infinite Tan & Spa, lounging on massage chairs, gossiping with the nail technicians, and sunning in advanced tanning beds as stereos pipe in your favorite CDs. Unfortunately for the rest of us, the only people who are able to spend an extended period of time at this tranquil oasis are the staff of specialists, who perform professional haircuts, adorn nails in Shellac polish, and soothe muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and prenatal massages. When administering professional facials, the expert aestheticians cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize skin to smooth wrinkles, reduce pores, and remove any last-minute shopping lists you might have hastily jotted on your forehead.
There’s only one rule at Donnal's Salon: Donnal’s vision is the last word. It might be hard for some to hand over full creative control, but according to St. Louis Magazine, "Donnal has clients who have moved to San Francisco or Chicago and still come back to have him cut their hair.” Perhaps what keeps them coming back—aside from the subliminal siren song broadcast from the Gateway Arch—is Donnal's ability to envision what hairstyle will bring out a client's best features. At his salon, he teaches a stable of apprentices and associate stylists how to similarly follow their instincts and provide clients with innovative cut and color treatments.

By completing an extended course in the treatment of hair loss and scalp disorders, Jessica Dalton earned herself a certificate from the Hair Loss Control Clinic, an international provider of laser hair-loss treatments. She puts her credentials to work at Clayton Aesthetics, located in Tymm's Place, using the MEP-90 laser on men's and women's thinning pates in an attempt to re-grow lost strands and add volume to existing manes. This high-tech form of biostimulation has been found to be safe in more than 3,500 medical papers and one disappointed mad scientist's diary.
