Hollywood Tan's 11 locations help Midwesterners stay tan year-round?even under their parkas. They accomplish this using equipment such as standup capsules, tanning beds, and Mystic Tan booths. Off to the side, lotions stand at attention on shelves, ready to help clients maintain their tan and keep their skin moisturized.
Permanent Great Looks Salon & Spa?s team of spa technicians enhances exteriors with a comprehensive menu of skin, body, and nail treatments. Manicure services provide customers with nails painted with Shellac polish that protects against chips for up to two weeks, even after wearers build sand castles to store stockpiles of shucked oyster shells. Toes simmer in heated bubble basins before curling up in steamy towels in the pedicure room, and aestheticians stationed in serene private rooms treat skin to body scrubs designed to polish surfaces and stir circulation. The active ingredients in body-scrub formulas range from Dead Sea salt to organic brown sugar steeped with essential oils and more conducive to soft skin than intercepting sneezes from the Marshmallow Man.
Pacific Beach's Beauty Angel treatment pairs beautification and physique sculpting in a series of 10-minute sessions combining light therapy, vibration, and platform-based exercise. Within the stand-up booth, clients bask in a safe red light that works to reawaken the body's collagen and elastin factories, disentangling wrinkles around the eyes and firming skin across the entire physique. The booth sports a vibrating platform designed to help break down cellulite and further stimulate epidermal collagen production. The vibrating motion also facilitates muscle toning and recovery by relaxing fibers. After seven daily sessions over one week, wrinkles may begin to diminish, cellulite may begin fade, and skin may begin smooth out, negating the need to seek eternal youth in every municipal fountain.
Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
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.
