The artists behind Art Monster set their sights on all sorts of blank canvases—from hoodies to sports cars to biceps—and transform them into eye-catching pieces of artwork. Owner Chris Sabatino keeps the modern studio in pristine condition all week long for his staff to decorate bodies with intricate tattoos. They also infuse wardrobes with a bit of attitude by custom airbrushing illustrations of their clients' favorite sports teams, animals, or Pantone swatches.

Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Warm vibes permeate the air at Morgan Ford Salon & Spa, where stylists shape fashionable hairdos and massage therapists knead away soreness and stress. The salon takes extra steps to assure clients' comfort. For example, each hair treatment—which utilizes Redken products—includes a steamed face towel, scalp massage, shampoo, and conditioning. Morgan Ford's massage therapists practice hot-stone, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release modalities, among other techniques. These bodywork sessions may also incorporate extras, such as heat therapy, aromatherapy oils, and scents, such as chocolate, pumpkin spice, or mango.
The seasoned staff at Salon St. Louis uses top-of-the-line skincare and haircare products to boost mortal beauty. The 60-minute Dermalogica facial employs face-mapping analysis to rejuvenate frowning frontispieces with custom-tweaked botanical formulas. Meanwhile, the salon's tress trimmers contour facial drapery with a haircut, scalp massage, and simple styling to give clients luscious locks for impressing passersby or bangs for playing peek-a-boo in the mirror. Partial highlights add extra follicle flare through the use of Natrique and Aveda's 97%-natural, ammonia-free products.
Verve Hair Salon was founded by husband and wife Jeff and Julie Lopinot, two veteran stylists committed to delivering fashionable, flattering haircuts. Having both attended Vidal Sassoon in London and worked as educators for Rusk, the duo now leads a staff of cosmetologists and specialists ready to conduct services keyed to each client's needs. Every precision haircut begins with a consultation to determine an approach based on factors including face shape, lifestyle, and affinity for upside-down roller coasters. In addition to cuts, the team also delivers coloring treatments ranging from double-process blonding to crown section highlights and dimensional coloring, as well as texturing services and hair extensions.
