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.
The Relax Retreat’s staff reinvigorates world-weary visages with 50-minute Retreat facials, performed in a tranquil scarlet- and cream-hued setting studded with verdant foliage. A thorough cleansing rids mugs of impurities, environmental pollutants, and soot from remodeling chimney interiors into functional arenas. The skincare technician then exfoliates outdated skin cells, leaving epidermises smooth, supple, and receptive to fresh cellular growth. A mask coats faces with a refreshing blend of vitamins and minerals, and applications of toner and moisturizer reduce the appearance of pores and bedeck countenances in a radiant, healthy glow. To complete the skin-soothing session, an experienced massage therapist delivers a relaxing face, neck, hand, and arm massage that disperses tension faster than overlaying a polka soundtrack on a courtroom drama.
Pretty N Posh adds panache to traditional teen and preteen pastimes with confidence-boosting mani-pedis, performed within a girly, multicolored salon space ($30 each). Catering to divas age 17 and under, Pretty N Posh lets young ladies upkeep their limbs with a one-hour ice-cream-sundae mani-pedi, which employs hypoallergenic ME! Bath products and begins with a relaxing hand and foot soak in chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla ice-cream-shaped bath salts.
While everyone can check their weight by stepping on a scale, not everyone loses weight easily or the same way. At Good Life Nutrition, registered nurse and certified health coach Tracey Berry recognizes this, and provides her clients with personalized weight loss plans. Her regimens can incorporate custom meal plans, whole-foods-only cleanses, and noninvasive i-Lipo treatments, which slim body circumferences with low-level lasers, rather than by wearing belts around every body part.
Valentine's Day is typically a stressful time of booked restaurants, singing telegrams, and raccoon uprisings. Today’s Groupon will help you and your date stay loose and relaxed through it all: for $70, you get two one-hour Swedish massages and two half-hour candlelit Jacuzzi soaks at Body Options Massage and Day Spa (a $170 value). Located in Hazelwood's Village Square Shopping Center in North St. Louis County, Body Options' quiet, comfortable atmosphere and professional staff make it worth the short drive. While one person can use both sessions on themselves, you can also split this Groupon into one session for two people—making it an ideal couples gift for Valentine's Day, as well as an above-average Arbor Day gift. Call at least a day ahead to schedule your appointment.
As a licensed massage therapist, cosmetologist, and nail technician, S.P.A. Exclusive owner LaTesha Minor has built a service menu that reflects her many talents.

The nail services are decidedly modern. They include bio seaweed gel (a natural alternative to acrylics) and waterless mani-pedis, which moisturize skin with keratin gloves and socks procured from the future.
