Led by Steven and Markita Holloway, the team at Studio 6 Salon & Spa works together to provide budget-friendly beautification services that have caught the attention of magazines such as Essence and Salon Sense. Stylists craft the latest hair designs, ranging from spiral perms to bonded or sewn-in weaves. The spa's tranquil, sea-green-toned ambiance, abundance of plants, and comfortable armchairs create a relaxing background for mani-pedis as well as facials, body wraps, and waxing services.
Couples can enjoy an aromatherapy or hot-stone massage together in a private room. For larger groups, the crew offers spa packages or parties for little princesses complete with wands, robes, and pointers on how to dance in glass slippers.
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.
Caribbean Solutions crafts safe, all-natural sun protection, hair, and skincare products to keep outer layers looking like new. Every plant-based product in the line is made without harmful chemicals or animal testing and packaged in recycled materials. The jade tanning oil draws on natural sunflower oil to give the skin a deeper hue ($18), and the golden opal tanning oil lends more conspicuous results, perfect for those seeking a richer luminosity or posing as Oscar statues ($25). Body satin moisturizer hydrates and smoothes ($20), and a range of shampoos and conditioners, in scents such as rainforest citrus mint and tropical mist, keeps flowing manes flouncy ($10 each).
Experienced staff at Quick Tone Fitness & Tanning Center takes over solar duties with a variety of services to bronze skin. During spray-tanning sessions, specialists cloak physiques in even coats of paraben- and perfume-free Sun FX potions brewed from purified water and natural ingredients. Sun FX tanning solutions react with the amino acids in skin to leave a tan with the even gold hue of King Midas' stress ball. In traditional UV-tanning sessions, guests may swaddle complexions within Level 3 beds or high-intensity Level 6 beds with 360 degrees of glowing rays. Patrons gain evening access to Quick Tone Fitness & Tanning Center, which requires only a personal security code that doubles as a Morse-code theme song.
