In March of 1997 Salon De Christé Mid Rivers was born to owners Mary Lou Luter and Lynn and Bob Miller. After owning The Natural Look Beauty Salon in St. Peters, Lynn and mother Mary Lou were ready for the next level. Bob, who had spent 25 years in the salon business, most recently as Vice President of Sales for Matrix Essentials, would handle the business side while Lynn and Mary Lou handled the technical and people side.
By the end of 1998 Salon De Christé topped one million dollars in sales and had over 40 employees. In 1999, the salon experienced a forty percent increase in business. In 2000 the salon was expanded from 4,000 square feet to 6,300 square feet. In 2001 the salon was honored by 101 HAIRSTYLES MAGAZINE as “The Best of the Best U.S.A. Salons” and by SALON TODAY magazine as one of “America’s Fastest Growing Salons.”
In December of 2001, Salon De Christé West Clay opened its doors. Keeping it all in the family, Bob and Lynn teamed up with Lynn’s brothers, Tim Luter and Tom Luter to open the new salon. The free-standing building on West Clay is 11,000 square feet with 4,000 square feet devoted to hair, 4,000 square feet devoted to the spa and 3,000 square feet in the lower level reserved for education, guests’ private parties and future expansion. With over 100 highly trained employees at the two locations, Salon De Christé will provide services in a caring and comfortable atmosphere for more than 5,000 guests each month.
