Salon Ahloe's owner, Safe Ahloe, is a style-savvy stylist with more than 20 years of beauty-bolstering experience. He and his staff offer a full range of spa and salon treatments to smooth and soothe whatever section of your surface-area aches need tending, be it a freshly sore Olive Oyl tattoo or love-bite scars from a pet gull. Tend to tresses with a haircut (starting at $30 for women, $18 for men). Or, swiftly sever strands from overly follicled areas such as the face, bikini area, or pancreas ($35 each). A spa manicure ($25) or pedicure ($25) can gussy-up nail farms. Hour-long massages range from $65 to $85, depending on the style, and laser hair-removal treatments range from $45 to $300 per treatment. Because this deal can be applied to any of Salon Ahloe's myriad of services, you may have trouble deciding which parts (fingernails, toenails, chortum) should get special treatment. Flip a coin or a 12-sided die and call to schedule your appointment.
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.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
The nail technicians at Design Envy don't simply apply monochrome coats of polish. They're true artists, carefully painting nails with bold stripes, vibrant patterns, and discreet final-exam answer keys. But their services aren't limited to the hands and feet; they also perform rejuvenating facials, waxing treatments, and full-on makeovers.
Beauty comes in many forms at Salon Bella & Boutique. Hairstylists craft elegant haircuts with highlights and lowlights, skincare specialists offer facials and waxing, and nail technicians adorn fingers and toes with nail art, mani-pedis, and spa pedicures with sugar scrubs and massages. This full-service salon also features Level 3 and Level 4 tanning services as well as a full boutique.
