With more than a decade of experience in the beauty industry, salon owner and certified colorist Natalie Harvey gives her clients fresh, new looks with her hairstyling services. She started her career at a young age and soon found herself teaching other stylists her techniques. Now, at Arco Hair Company, she calls on these experiences to lead a team of such maverick hair experts as Courtney Bass. After training under acclaimed St. Louis stylists, Courtney steeped himself in the Los Angeles fashion industry, honing a sense for cuts and color that challenged the style status quo. Today, Natalie, Courtney, and the rest of Arco's style team create fresh new looks with Schwarzkopf Professional color and the GKhair smoothing system.
Eight therapists and one esthetician man an intimate neighborhood practice in southern St. Louis, relaxing clients inside a sunny storefront with three treatment rooms or bringing their chairs to corporate events and parties. The team capably treats varying conditions by employing a host of modalities, including deep-tissue massage for chronic pain, prenatal massage for mother-and-child wellness, and hot-stone massage for slowly immunizing the body against magma. They also offer wide variety of spa, body treatment, facial services, and waxing treatments. As the pressure of thumbs penetrates the skin, body treatments, such as the seaweed-algae mask and the Dead Sea?mud mask, replenish dermal surfaces with organic goodies and help revitalize all of the body's tissues.
Liz Davis loves drama. Dramatic color and dramatic style; they?re both a part of her cosmetic flair. Her portfolio shows off this bombast, particularly in her hairdressing chops, a skill that was first cultivated as a Paul Mitchell student. Bangs form a sharp diagonal down the forehead, and dueling shades of curls intertwine to form a shape and pattern akin to a peppermint. The hues come from professional lines such as Schwarzkopf and Pravana Vivids, and the original cuts are the work of her own scissors, razors, and pet falcon's beak. Liz also beautifies faces with makeup application, brow shaping, and lash tinting.
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.
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.
