The Original Studio Salon Concept in the St. Louis Area

In 1999, local entrepreneurs Tony Pringle, Howard Smith and Anne Kessen Lowell took the local beauty industry by storm when they opened St. Louis’ first high end, self-contained studio salon in University City. The owners’ unique concept provides experienced hairstylists, manicurists, estheticians and massage therapists the opportunity to own and manage their own businesses in private, state-of-the-art studio spaces. Owners enjoy the perks of entrepreneurship including setting their own hours and prices, selling the product lines they choose, keeping 100% of their profits and enjoying one-on-one time with their clients. Metro Design Studio Salons expanded to four convenient locations in University City, Des Peres, Creve Coeur and Chesterfield and is supporting more than 100 entrepreneurs in the cosmetology industry.

Metro Design Studio Salons is the first salon in the St. Louis area to offer this type of entrepreneurial experience, and with an owner retention rate of over 95%, it continues to be the premier salon of its kind in St. Louis.
