The staff at Shear-Lock Combs West takes the mystery of out fixing hair and skin issues. Scissors tear through split ends and unwanted length in a single snip, and facials gently erase acne and fine lines. The beauty pros also apply glamorous makeup that can last through weddings, dances, and triathlons. In addition to this meticulous attention to the face, Shear-Lock ensures the rest of the body isn't neglected with a host of full-body treatments. They offer chair and full-body massages, waxing for the bikini zone and legs, and give skin a sun-kissed glow with custom spray-tan formulas.
As a personal trainer, qi gong and yoga instructor, and physical-therapist assistant, Ken has developed a broad and intuitive understanding of the human body. He brings all this knowledge—plus more than 15 years of massage experience—to bear during soothing sessions at STL Massage and Health. There, Ken and his team of qualified massage therapists tackle muscular knots with a wide variety of modalities, including Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.

They also offer additional harmonizing treatments, including beeswax ear candling and reflexology for the hands, feet, and ears.
