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.
For homestyle deliciousness in generous, fresh-cooked portions, look no further than Kluckin' Chicken & Fish, a restaurant with a casual vibe but whose approach to food is anything but. Mixed buckets of fried light and dark meat dominate the chicken menu, the meat juicy beneath a golden crust of original or hot and spicy breading. Catfish, grouper, and whitefish fillets fortify sandwiches or decorate plates alone, while jalape?o poppers, buttermilk popcorn shrimp, frog legs, and cheddar broccoli bites invite appetizer seekers to try something new from the deep fryer.
