D's Yoga Home's certified instructors and holistic healers foster a community of mind-and-body wellness with eclectic yoga classes. Like Baldwin brothers, the schedule boasts diversity and features varying levels of difficulty, including introductory classes designed to acquaint fledgling flexers with the basic poses, proper alignment, and breathing techniques. 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.

Pro Tip: Visuals aids are always a good thing to use when showing your stylist what you're wanting.
What's the biggest mistake you see clients make when they style their hair at home?
[People] not using the proper products for their hair texture, so their hair is not holding the style or giving them the look they're trying to achieve.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Use a shampoo and conditioner with UV protector to protect your virgin or colored hair. Your color fades [during] your typical wash out, heat styling and UV lights.
If the apocalypse ever comes, what low-maintenance hairstyle would you recommend for the foraging person on-the-go?
A short modern pixie with a versatile fringe. Similar to Jennifer Laurence's hair cut.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am an educator for the manufacturer Rusk. I travel all over teaching salon classes on different cutting and coloring techniques.
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.
At Breath of Life Health & Wellness Center the staff welcomes patrons into a haven of relaxation and wellness, leading personal-training, yoga, nutrition-coaching, and massage-therapy sessions to inspire their guests to lead healthier, more balanced lifestyles. The dedicated staffers play a variety of roles in their clients' wellness. They help alleviate chronic discomfort and tension with massage therapy and chiropractic services, and guide guests through a series of relaxing and body-toning postures in yoga classes, which vary from gentle meditation-focused sessions to high-intensity core Vinyasa flow. The center?s meditation room offers a break from life's stresses with a space to reflect and center oneself without distraction from the outside world.
