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.
In 2000, Doctor of Chiropractic William A. Straughn moved his self-named practice to Florissant, the place where he was born and raised and where his grandmother still lives. This move enabled him to serve the people of his hometown who suffer from chronic lower-back and neck pain or who need to regain their footing after an accident or injury. Dr. Straughn and his staff also teach patients how they can improve their diets and how to incorporate healthy habits into their workdays, such as doing jumping jacks in a crowded elevator or sprinting full speed to the restroom.
