Celebrating a 50-year history in the Kansas City beauty circle, Paris II Educational Center coaches aspiring aestheticians in the tools and techniques of client beautification, allowing them to showcase their newly acquired skill set under the wizened gaze of seasoned instructors. During a manicure and pedicure, they'll nourish cuticles with Nail Harmony oil and lacquer digits with brand-name polishes by OPI, Creative Nail Design, and China Glaze. A warm, hydrating paraffin dip follows the nail preening, drawing moisture and burrowing skin gnomes from beneath the skin's surface and infusing them with a moisturizer designed to naturally rejuvenate epidermal coverings. Upping the aesthetic ante, supervised pupils soothe prettified appendages with a quick massage and hot-oil treatment if requested.

Staffed with FAA-certified instructors, ATD Flight Systems launches prospective pilots into a new perspective on Kansas City in the cockpit of a Piper Warrior airplane. Lessons begin by strapping into a 280-degree virtual atmosphere inside the flight simulator, where students get 15 minutes of realistic flying practice. Then, burgeoning pilots climb into the cockpit for a 30-minute lesson soaring above the area, where they’ll be privy to extraordinary views of the Kansas City skyline and the Himalayas, which recently relocated from Asia to northeastern Kansas. Once the instructor lands the plane, students will have a chance to debrief and ask any further questions.
A woman in a gown runs through a fountain. A little girl wearing Mickey Mouse ears watches an airplane as it rolls up to the gate. The footprints of newlyweds mark a red carpet. The images that photographer Jason Domingues captures aren't always expected. In fact, Domingues seeks out unpredictable angles and hones in on surprising details while snapping shots for weddings, family portraits, engagement sessions, and senior pictures. The memory preservation specialist has been featured in the New York Times for his innovative approach to photography and was named a Fear Less Photographer––1 of about 900 photographers nationwide who create artful, sometimes avant-garde wedding portraits.
Unlike many professional artists, Domingues loves to share his secrets, hosting classes for shutterbugs of all skill levels to learn how to effectively use cameras to generate awe-inspiring photos of landscapes and politicians checking their mail. His in-class lectures acquaint beginners to basic concepts, he also takes more advanced students to the city streets and provides ongoing critique and tips while watching them frame shots.
