The Polished Edge Salon's team of experienced stylists sculpts hairdos with artistic precision and enhances treatments with products from top industry brands such as Bed Head, Schwarzkopf, and Paul Mitchell within a softly lit space accented by floor-to-ceiling windows. Following a thorough consultation, mane masters snip and style head threads to match a client's detailed description or a manifestation of their favorite Sunday comic. Delving deep into follicles with reckless abandon, deep-conditioning treatments saturate weary strands with vitality enriching formulas, which allow full highlights to vibrantly accentuate facial features. Appointments may take between one and three hours depending on the package purchased, although complimentary WiFi and recordings of President Roosevelt's fireside chats ensure that clients remain entertained.

Known for its history as a pioneer town and home to former president Harry S. Truman, Independence welcomes visitors to its storied sites, making them more accessible with free trolley rides. Tour the 1859 Jail and Marshal's Home and Museum to glimpse a dwelling for law breakers next to a dwelling for a law keeper, and the clandestine tryst between the abodes that resulted in a museum. The Bingham-Waggoner Estate preserves many of the original art and furnishings of the famed Bingham and Waggoner families, while the National Frontier Trails Museum hails the starting point of the westbound pioneers with bronzed pieces of nuts, raisins, and chocolate bits tracing a path westward.

This duo of history-rich houses showcase antebellum architectural styles, while providing insight into the mores of the era. With four tour tickets total, the historically inclined can visit each house twice or bring a friend along for each visit, while family memberships net unlimited entries for the nuclear unit, along with advance invites to special society-only events. A Greek revival-style home from 1858, the John Wornall House beckons history lovers in to watch costumed reenactors living in the past, where they play period-specific video games while drinking period-specific Mountain Dew. Regular special events at the house include paranormal investigations by local ghost hunters and recreations of the house’s past as a Civil War hospital. Dogs can sprint across the lush grounds while their two-legged companions waft in luscious scents from the herb garden, which contains a variety of delicate plants used in medicines and recipes.
