Mixed-level classes hone strength and endurance with Vinyasa-inspired flowing poses, whereas restorative practices utilize supportive props to nurture the body during hip openers and back bends.

A.J. and Allison had really important napkins. Over a few glasses of wine, the pair scribbled ideas and notes onto the normally disposable squares, and what began as a dream over drinks quickly grew into Poco Hair Company. Today, the ladies give hair the attention they once gave napkins, creating dazzling 'dos via cut and color services. Their irreverent decor engages the eyes of patrons as trained stylists expertly detach split ends, add desired layers, and remove stray pelican feathers for a variety of styles, from bohemian to natural to punk.

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.

Sunflower Massage Studio isn't just a relaxing refuge from the everyday—as a local business, it's also a refuge from the revolving-door approach of chain massage studios. This means that in addition to a tension-relieving massage, customers get a bounty of other thoughtful amenities, such as a 30-minute buffer zone before and after the massage to give client and therapist time to wind down and discuss the session. It also means the therapists won't pressure their clients to choose a massage modality, as every session is customized to their individual needs. Of course, add-ons such as hot stones and aromatherapy are available, as well as specialty styles such as prenatal, myofascial-release, and sports massage, which helps athletes' muscles recover from sporting events and emotions recover from tense exchanges with referees.

As a licensed massage therapist with certification in geriatric massage, owner Amy Charlton relieves muscle soreness with five different massage modalities. After clients choose either oil or lotion to help nimble knot untanglers skate over the skin like youthful Lilliputians gliding across a bowl of Jello, Amy gently strokes spine covers with techniques including Swedish massage, which restores bodies using traditional strokes, and deep-tissue massage focuses on the connective tissues deep below the surface with increased intensity. Therapeutic massage combines deep-tissue massage with myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, and Freudian dream analysis to alleviate chronic pains such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Trained to recognize the needs of senior citizens, Amy addresses health conditions and concerns before beginning gentle senior-massage sessions, using light pressure and rhythmic circular motions to reduce swelling.
