During more than a quarter century at the helm of LookAfter Hair Company, Peter Hall has seen the styling industry gradually split in two directions—toward the high-end salon and toward the in-and-out fast cut place. With LookAfter, Peter decided to close that gap. There, guests can get premium salon services on a walk-in basis and haircuts from stylists who will gladly slow down for careful consultations instead of racing through trims with stopwatches in their hands. The name LookAfter is meant to reflect this blend and to demonstrate his vision for a place where the staff stands ready to serve all clients, whether they need keratin treatments, eyebrow waxes, or beard trims. This approach has helped LookAfter grow to more than 40 locations across St. Louis, Kansas City, and central Illinois, and the idea has also led to ongoing community outreach. Stylists have helped raise money for disaster relief, support breast-cancer awareness, and generate funds for veterans’ programs by carrying haircare products from American Warrior.

After watching her mother lose her fight with cancer, Lisa Glad promised to dedicate the rest of her life to helping others let go of pain and stress. So she became a massage therapist. She joins the team of Steel Magnolias Spa & Boutique, where all members work tirelessly to help both men and women relax with spa and skincare services. At the spa, aestheticians use Gentle Touch facial treatments, which blend high-tech skincare methods with natural ingredients, for custom facials that cleanse and exfoliate faces and favorite masquerade masks. In addition to Lisa's massages, the menu of services also includes body sugaring, a method of all-natural hair removal. After any service, clients can peruse a selection of wallets, handbags, jewelry, and skincare products in the spa's boutique.
