Voted Kansas City's Best Barber in 2008 and 2009 by CityVoter, The Men's Locker Room provides guy-focused haircare and spa services in a comfortable, masculine atmosphere.

Salon & Spa De Crist owner Janel Schick encourages her staff of more than 10 skilled technicians to be "straight shooters" with their clients.

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.
