Completing the schooling necessary to become a hairstylist wasn't the end of Jamie Raup's training. Instead, she continually enlists in educational courses in order to stay abreast of hair's latest trends. At True Colours Salon, she draws upon this extensive training as she styles hair with fresh cuts, brushes on color, or nourishes strands with deep-conditioning treatments.
With more than 13 years of experience behind the styling chair, Sarah Vogt isn't afraid to venture outside the realm of traditional cuts. In addition to decorating her hardwood floors with expertly chopped locks, she tames frizzy strands with deep conditioners, restores order for the long term with keratin smoothing treatments, and adds vibrant dimension with single-process color or highlights.
Patty Coll can read your mind—or so it would seem. During her last 15 years in the salon industry, she’s developed a keen sense for what clients are looking for, a sense that has led to features in magazines such as Salon Today and St. Louis’s own Best Bridal. Now, in the comfort of Salon KJ, anyone can seek her expertise for face-flattering layers or bold highlights. When not transforming tresses at Salon KJ, Patty can be found honing her technique on the sets of fashion runways, commercial shoots, and competitive-eating contests.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city’s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location’s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace where stressed guests can burn incriminating documents. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
These amenities set the stage for classic spa treatments such as a massage with heated and ice-cooled river stones or a seaweed body wrap. Incorporating the tranquil atmosphere of the spa, the salon transforms appearances with designer cuts and Platinum Seamless hair extensions as well as nail services that draw on hot stones, paraffin treatments, and essential oils.
