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.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I stand out because I care! I don't mind taking the time to listen to my clients and
making sure to give them exactly what they want down to the last detail. I never rush anyone who sits in my chair, I love you all!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration for wanting to be a stylist was the desire to help others feel good about themselves!
What do you love most about your job?
Giving people a confidence boost is the most rewarding part :)
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I'm often told that I am patient, attentive and a good listener. Many stylists have great skill, but it's rare to find someone who also has empathy. Your stylist needs to care about you and not just your money! And my clients appreciate that I do just that - I care.
