Ashley Lawrence loves to make clients feel beautiful. Her chair at Salon Ritz in Lee’s Summit sees plenty of regular customers, and it’s because Ashley believes in taking extra time to lavish each visitor with lots of personal attention. Specializing in on-trend cuts, coloring, and styling, Ashley also offers gentle facial waxing and formal updos for special occasions such as proms and weddings.
Heather Holiday loves styling, especially when she can help a client gain confidence with a fresh new do. Drawing on more than eight years of experience, Heather can refine your look with a simple bang trim or revamp your mop with confident layers and color treatments. Outside of hair, Studio 500 also offers a mélange of spa services, from facial waxing and nailcare to restorative massages.
The teal, white, and purple floor tiles at Champu Hair Design complement its pink-accented walls, giving the salon a bright atmosphere. The stylists perform cuts and color treatments as creative as the salon's design, such as pink mohawks and intricate braids or classic straight styles and formal updos.
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.
After a warm welcome at the door, the staff at Stories & Dreamz whisks clients to a styling station in the spacious salon, where they'll revamp your skin and nails. As you bask in the relaxing atmosphere and sip a refreshment, your aesthetician will reduce your resemblance to the Swedish Chef with an eyebrow streamlining ($10–$14) or prep your pelvis for summer with a basic bikini wax ($45). If your talons are in need of taming now that your bald-eagle internship is over, a basic manicure ($15) and pedicure ($35) will curtail cuticles, banish hangnails, and massage stiff phalanges.
