The Rat Pack members were known for their smooth tunes, charming personalities, and classic style. When they visited St. Louis, the quintet kept themselves looking sharp with trips to a barbershop tucked inside the basement of the historic Chase Park Plaza. Though the original barbershop is long gone, Cutters & Co. picked up the slack, and today its staff carries on the tradition at the original barbershop's location. Cutters opened in true Rat Pack style on Frank Sinatra's 90th birthday, providing the community with artful male grooming, including expert haircuts that come with a scalp massage, a shampoo, and a Sammy Davis, Jr.–mustache application. The shop's signature service encompasses a haircut, a hot-towel facial, and a chair massage. Guests are even encouraged to kick back with a complimentary beer from Cutters' fully stocked cooler of seasonal brews. Past brands have included Corona for Cinco de Mayo, Schlafly summer lager to kick off summer 2012, and Budweiser as a tribute to the Rat Pack's favorite drink.

Like any artist, licensed cosmetologist Christie Mitchell is never completely satisfied with her skills. Though she draws on more than five years of experience in the industry, she still takes classes to stay up to date on new techniques. These abilities shine through whether she is decking out peepers with specialty Xtreme lash extensions, semi-permanent extensions that adhere directly to natural lashes, or removing unwanted hair. She can wax eyebrows and lips, leaving them as smooth as a cue ball that hasn’t been cursed by a gypsy.
