SassaFrass Salon and Boutique’s stylists and aestheticians skillfully snip locks in a friendly salon that boasts bubblegum-pink and magenta striped walls. Stylists’ hands deftly give dimension to tresses with highlights, add luxurious length with hair extensions, and wax away unwanted moustaches. For those looking to retouch skin rather than hair, the salon’s SunStar tanning beds and organic airbrush tanning give bodies a coppery glow, helping clients look at home at the beach even before they’ve moved into their new three-bedroom sandcastle.
Massage therapist Brittney, who works within Clear Creek Spa, specializes in clinical massages that bring clients back from the brink of injury and pain. Brittney's nimble fingers work on muscle strains caused by weightlifting, running, and performing routine household tasks, such as lifting groceries and being the table during a daughter's tea party. She is particularly adept at working out neck and hip issues. Brittney also fights tension and stress during relaxation massages and breaks up muscle knots during deep-tissue kneadings.
Southern Missouri native Shannon Pate makes helping her clients feel comfortable, beautiful, and pampered her main priority when performing a range of skincare and body treatments.

Shannon also offers add-on services such as ear candling, facial masks, and collagen lip pads.
At Backwoods Salon & Tanning, beauty comes pretension-free—the salon's casual environment makes for low-key haircut experiences for men and women. Along with cuts and color, the salon also features UV bed tanning, so guests can develop beach-like glows without ever leaving the shade of a tree.
To create a tranquil, relaxing experience, The Spa of Cool Springs incorporates elements of nature into both its treatments and its decor. Guests walking into the reception area are greeted by comfortable brown leather armchairs and a substantial marble-and-stone desk. In the treatment rooms, deep-green walls and botanically inspired prints bring the outdoors in. Therapists perform a variety of massage modalities within their dimly lit hallows, using earthy tools such as warm river rocks and brown-sugar scrubs. During skincare treatments, the fragrant and sustainably farmed ingredients in Éminence Organic Skin Care products soothe weary skin. Aestheticians promote a balanced complexion with probiotics and tea-tree oil, or employ a citrusy, herbal formula to target men's ingrown hairs or stubborn Muscle Milk mustaches.
The Spa’s decor evokes the French countryside, surrounding a savvy staff as they assist patrons in reaching personal cosmetic goals. In private treatment rooms throughout the 4,000-square-foot sanctuary, music rolls from speakers, calming guests and scaring away feral jazz quartets with the sounds of full symphonies. Patrons revel in stress-banishing massage therapies, see fuzzy patches evicted with laser hair-removal treatments, or undergo nourishing facial treatments at the hands of the aestheticians.
