In 2010, hair stylist Amy Pering turned away from her job in the corporate world to pursue her passion in cosmetics and hair styling. A quick learner, by August of 2011 she had already graduated from a Paul Mitchell school and was ready for the next chapter of her life: helping others look and feel their best. After whetting her professional appetite at another Prairie Village spa, Amy opened her own salon—Love Your Body Beautiful—where she hopes to impress the message in her business name onto her clients. Today, clients come to her salon for her precision cuts, styles, and coloring done with professionally trusted Paul Mitchell products and never products from imposters like Shmaul Shmitchell.
Jennifer, the stylist responsible for turning first-time visitors to Salon Studio and Spa into loyal clients, employs seven years of haircare experience to design the most flattering coiffures for each individual. She also uses only high-quality products, including those by Pureology and Kevin Murphy. During a women’s, men’s, or kids’ haircut, Jennifer snips away at strands to fashion custom head-top masterpieces. She also arranges hair into updos to prepare clients for formal bowling tournaments and uses Keune Professional Color products to add fashionable new shades without attaching a chameleon with a bobby pin. Patrons can spiff up areas below the hairline with an eyebrow shaping using tea-tree wax or with a long-lasting Gelish manicure.
With 24 years of beauty-industry experience, the stylists at Shampoo Salon and Spa create classic or modern hairstyles with cutting, coloring, and texturing services. Hairstyling ranges from simple blow-dry styles to trendy spiral perms, and waxing is also available for men, women, and self-conscious stuffed animals looking to shed unwanted strands from the lip, chin, or brow.
Salon Exposé's savvy stylists update ‘dos with contemporary cuts and natural-looking color using Italian-made Davines haircare products. Trained colorists can brighten drab locks with a two-color partial foil highlight or permanently dye strands to match your favorite movie star's workout wardrobe using a milk-protein conditioning color system that tints tendrils while adding softness and shine. Strategically executed snips and a fresh style update newly hued tresses with texture, sleek edges, and increased aerodynamic lift on particularly windy days. The clean white walls, dark furniture, and geometric artwork lend a modern ambiance to the bright and airy salon.
A hair studio, yoga den, and holistic wellness center might seem like a unique combination, but it makes perfect sense to founders Holly Williams and Angela Cronk. Both come from work backgrounds in beauty services and maintain personal lifestyles that emphasize holistic wellness—creating the roots of their center that combines the best of both worlds. At Hagoyah, they’ve assembled a team of stylists, massage therapists, yoga instructors, and life coaches that provides just those things to all of their clients and students, helping them achieve a personal balance between the physical and mental.
On a regular day at Hagoyah, a massage therapist soothes muscles with various techniques, and elsewhere instructors move through relaxing yoga poses within heated rooms. Aestheticians create their own facial products for clients, and stylists with John Paul Mitchell and other credentials cut and color hair to complement their clients’ looks. The services don't stop at the studio, though. Life coaches and nutritional coaches are also on hand to help clients make lifelong positive changes that can bolster their health inside and out.
