Salon & Spa De Crist owner Janel Schick encourages her staff of more than 10 skilled technicians to be "straight shooters" with their clients. As mentioned in her bio, Janel thinks keeping things honest is the best way to ensure clients receive the right treatments and most flattering hair trends for them. To help brighten and nourish complexions with facials and peels, the spa's aestheticians rely on Repêchage and Bioelements skincare products. On the salon floor, stylists expertly design flattering cuts and color for any hair type with Schwarzkopf, Goldwell hair-color, Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Aquage haircare products. The spa's massage therapist helps relax tight muscles with five massage modalities, and an on-staff permanent-makeup artist skillfully tattoos eyeliner and lip liner, and fills in brows that keep scurrying away.
Hair Slingers Salon’s staff of beauticians, some of whom bring 34 years of styling to each cut, revamps clients’ looks with a full menu of hair, mani-pedi, and waxing services. In a hardwood-floored studio, whimsically decorated with hanging paper snowflakes, stylists snip and paint through cuts and color treatments, lengthen existing manes with hair extensions, and transform frizz into sleek tresses with hair-straightening treatments such as Keratin Complex and Brazilian Blowout. Along with salon services, the staff runs an in-house boutique stocked full of cute accessories including purses, wallets, and eighteenth-century-style wigs.
Salon Envy's staff cossets hair, skin, and nails with natural Aveda products and expert techniques. Stylists imbue hair with highlights and alluring cuts, smooth strands with Brazilian blowouts and Juvexin, and twirl curls into updos for special occasions such as weddings and proms. As aestheticians exfoliate, massage, polish, and imprint appendages in Grauman's cement, water swirls in a hexagonal pedicure tub and guests recline in a plush leather armchair. The beauty buffs also enliven complexions with facials, eyelash extensions, whisker-slaying electrolysis, and massages.
Aesthetician Jacquie Keller operates Essential Skin Care out of The Style Room, a 2,000-square-foot salon and spa nestled in the historic downtown of Lee’s Summit. Keller believes firmly in the power of nonsurgical treatments—in the clinic and at home—to reverse the furrowed march of aging. Through a studied application of facials, waxing services, relaxation massages, and reflexology, she puts clients at ease while jamming Father Time's fingers in the doors of perception.
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.
