Growing up, Danielle Beckham was the frequent winner of local art contests. Her gifts with color and composition gradually drew her to the world of cosmetology, where she now exerts her expertise as the owner of the aptly named Artisans Salon. Danielle’s cadre of stylists updates tresses for men and women alike, bestowing services such as hair color, Brazilian blowouts, and hot shaves.
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.
The licensed aestheticians at FaceLuXe clear skin of dirt and unwanted hair with a full spectrum of facials and waxing services. Their concern for individual care shines through in the consultations that precede each treatment, during which they select products that match clients’ specific skin types. They then use these products in signature facials designed to address issues associated with aging, such as fine lines and burn marks from trying to blow out too many birthday candles at once. As a partner of MassageLuXe—a company dedicated to improving health through therapeutic massage—FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Day of Renew treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and warm lavender paraffin treatment for the hands and feet.
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.
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.
Kevyn Idoux, owner of Kolors Salon and a top salon educator, designs precision cuts and mixes custom color in his Paul Mitchell Focus salon. Hair honchos begin each 80-minute session with a thorough consultation to determine their client's needs and ensure that they're pleased with their cut. Next, the deep-conditioning wild-ginger treatment softens and comforts locks traumatized by excessive coloring, heat styling, and nightmares of being chased by novelty-size scissors.
