If clothes make the man, and Tailored Gents makes the clothes, founder Darryl Tyler deserves a lot of credit. Much like a coach or talent scout, Tyler turns what is into what could be, transforming wardrobes and providing men an easy outlet for custom clothing, from suits to handmade footwear.

\u201cTailored Gents is a lifestyle brand offering the finest luxury menswear to the modern man,\u201d Tyler says. \u201cFounded on traditional tailoring principles, our garments are designed and personalized to match each client\u2019s individual taste of style without compromising quality or craftsmanship.\u201d

Tyler launched Tailored Gents after nearly two decades in the corporate world and several years selling luxury menswear. Although he was ranked high among male stylists in the company, he decided to found his own business to gain more control on fabric, footwear and accessory items, along with pricing.

\u201cI formed Tailored Gents in 2015 and began courting and trying out different factories in Italy and Asia,\u201d he says. \u201cThe process of experimenting with different factories is expensive, as I had to make things for myself to gauge quality, turn time, consistency with measurements and pricing. I was able to secure relationships with my garment and shoe manufacturers in spring of 2016. At that point, I went live and ended my relationship with my previous menswear company.\u201d

Through these manufacturer relationships, Tyler helps clients create one-of-a-kind pieces perfect for their tastes, body types and lifestyles. He says there\u2019s a healthy mix of clients who look for his assistance while designing, as well as clients who take the reins.

\u201cOnce I have a sense of my client\u2019s style, I\u2019ll make recommendations, and it will evolve from there,\u201d he says, noting that most customers prefer having fabric and inspiration looks preselected. However, Tyler says this is sometimes merely the starting point. \u201cI do have some fashion-forward clients who pick out and design their own items,\u201d he continues, \u201cand I\u2019m always amazed at their creativity. I pick up many styling tips from interacting with my clients.\u201d

Tyler is tall and slim, and he explains his physique made buying off-the-rack apparel problematic before switching to custom. As opposed to settling for ill-fitting designs made to appeal to as many sizes as possible \u2013 or paying for after-the-fact fittings \u2013 Tyler recommends working with a clothier who can accommodate one-of-a-kind body characteristics.

\u201cThe majority of my first-time clients have never experienced a custom suit \u2013 made to measure or bespoke \u2013 so they\u2019re looking to have better-fitting clothes to address issues they have buying off the rack,\u201d says Tyler. He also notes the design options and convenience of working with a clothier, allowing clients to select the fabric and details without the hassle of shopping. \u201cMost of my clients live busy lives, so saving them time is very important,\u201d Tyler says.

One of Tailored Gents\u2019 main services is the wardrobe consultation. Before meeting, clients provide fashion and lifestyle information about the goals of their wardrobe and favorite brands. After the questionnaire involved in that step and a new client call, it\u2019s time for an initial meeting.

\u201cWe will discuss their long-term objectives of what they envision as a perfect wardrobe for personal and professional settings,\u201d Tyler says. \u201cFrom there, I recommend some staple items every man should have in their wardrobe and suggest a few pieces that reflect their personality.\u201d

Tyler explains that most new clients have an immediate need (a replacement suit or sport coat, for example, or a tuxedo for an event), so after that has been addressed, other pieces are identified and added over time. He aims to meet with his clients at least twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall.

Tailored Gents assists men primarily in the St. Louis area, although Tyler says he does have a dozen or so clients across the country. He notes entrepreneurs, doctors, bankers, military officers, sales representatives and financial advisers as frequent clients, but says variances in price point allow for a diverse audience.

\u201cA [Tailored Gents] man is someone who has influence within their social and professional settings and understands that his wardrobe is part of his personal branding,\u201d Tyler says. \u201cHe invests in himself and works with a stylist/clothier to establish a plan and execute over time as he would his accountant with tax planning, attorney with legal protection or financial adviser with asset accumulation. My goal is for my client to enjoy wearing everything in his closet, not just the popular few items in the front.\u201d

Amy Lynn Johnson worked as an environmental engineer for three years before ultimately realizing it wasn\u2019t her dream. She always knew she wanted to have her own creative product, but it was nearly a decade before her future in fashion design began to take shape. Johnson did take a valuable lesson from her time in engineering, where great order was created within chaos, leading to the name of her company: KayOss. After studying and training in fashion design in Florence, Italy, the Highland, Illinois, native returned to the St. Louis area and hit the ground running, co-founding the PRONTO Fashion Show in 2006, where she debuted her KayOss fashion line for the first time. KayOss products can be purchased at Johnson\u2019s pop-up boutiques, with online purchases available soon.

How would you describe the aesthetic of your line?

KayOss is all about being noticed, by the fabric movement, texture, color and design \u2013 adding a classy hint of flirt and feminine edge. It feels amazing to the touch, travels well and is timeless. It\u2019s meant to create conversation, inspire and bring out a woman\u2019s inner goddess. My clients tell me that their husbands never comment on their clothes, but when they wear KayOss, the compliments flow.

What inspires your designs?

I am inspired by fabrics. I go to Los Angeles and New York to search for the perfect fabrics and also meet with my reps that bring in fabric from Italy and France and other countries. I am always looking wherever I am traveling! My line is always changing, now moving to as much natural fibers as possible so the clothes can breathe and feel even more amazing. I am also inspired by my surroundings through travel. It all happens organically, which I can always see after the line is developed. I am currently taking ballet and spending a lot of time in nature, so we will see what happens next season!

Do you do all the design work, or do you work with a team?

I do the design work with input on structure from my amazing seamstresses and patternmakers. I also feel there is a design collaboration with my clients, as they request what they would like, and I get to work with so many different body types to see what moves and flows well. I built my business on trunk shows and charity fashion shows, fitting many, many women, changing and perfecting my patterns over the last 10 years. This has really helped me to understand women\u2019s different body types and what is necessary in designing garments that look good on their body, which in turn they feel great! That\u2019s my favorite part: to see how happy they are. I have the best clients \u2013 most of them have become good friends over the years.

What types of clothing do you sell?

I started with skirts, then added tops, dresses, coats and, most recently, pants. I also add fun pieces to my line sometimes \u2013 cardigans, kimonos, shrugs, tights, scarves, wraps. If it fits great, they can take it; if not, I can offer to fit them and have [an item custom]-made if I have the fabric available, which usually takes about two weeks. This allows a lot of flexibility if [the customer] would like [the article of clothing] longer, or with sleeves, or they just need a little extra room in some areas.

How does your company have a low carbon footprint?

Everything is designed and produced in St. Louis. I was an environmental engineer, so I keep aware of the process and work toward minimal waste as much as possible. My tag line is \u201cIf you do what you love and follow your heart, you will find your calm within the chaos.\u201d I truly believe this. I never felt connected when I was working in engineering, and the last thing I ever thought I would be doing is designing clothing. You never know. You just cannot give up. It\u2019s baby steps toward what feels right in your heart, so I work every day to incorporate this into all areas of my life.

Despite the time invested in it, the gorgeous, sleek do of a \u201cgood hair day\u201d can fast fall victim to St. Louis\u2019 legendary summer humidity, making it go from fab to frizz in no time flat.

So whether in the Lou or on a tropical getaway, ladies, avoid frizzy hair by following these steps for creating and keeping tamed tresses:

Rinse with cold water. Although this may sound unpleasant, washing out conditioner with cold water helps keep frizz at bay. On a humid day, this also may feel really refreshing. Either way, your frizz-free hair will benefit.

Condition cunningly. After washing your hair, use a leave-in conditioner that doubles as a heat protectant. Such a product acts as a sealant, helping to tame frizz. Even if your hair doesn\u2019t necessarily frizz instantly, this step should help keep frizz at bay throughout the day.

Lay off the heat. Let your hair air-dry unless absolutely necessary. Even in dire necessity, though, make sure your hair\u2019s air-dried about 80 percent before using a dryer on its lowest setting. The less heat exposure, the better \u2013 you want to avoid overly drying your do.

Use hair oil. After completely drying and styling your locks, add hair oil, which both increases shine and controls frizz. Rub the oil between your hands before applying it lightly from the scalp to the ends. Make sure not to use too much, though, to avoid looking greasy.

Alternatively, rock those natural curls! Sometimes the best solution to combatting frizz involves showcasing hair\u2019s natural wave or curl. Straightening naturally curly hair on a humid day can sometimes cause frizz. Humidity can actually help natural hair look better, ladies \u2013 so don\u2019t fear embracing your beautiful do \u201cas is\u201d!

The right-hand ring grew as a fashion statement that symbolized independence and growing spending power for women in the early 2000s. Today, it still proves a significant style choice \u2013 and in St. Louis, Genovese Jewelers has cornered the market on it.

\u201cAbout 15 years ago, we saw this big shift from women receiving jewelry as a traditional gift given by their husbands for an anniversary or birthday to women buying jewelry for themselves,\u201d president Joe Genovese says. \u201cWe had to become fashion-forward. With the majority of women working, especially since that surge 20 years ago, they no longer have to ask permission from their husbands to purchase jewelry. They make the money now to buy it themselves.\u201d

Right-hand rings at Genovese are reasonably priced, too \u2013 anywhere from $300 to $3,000. The true value, though, comes with the design. \u201cWhat came into style back then is still [relevant] today: an ornate, open design, with filigree and width,\u201d Genovese describes. \u201cA right-hand ring can\u2019t be bread-and-butter, no three-stone diamond ring. It has to be unique and with a little bling. Typically, right-hand rings are made of white diamonds. In the past few years, we\u2019ve done a tremendous amount with yellow and rose gold as well.\u201d

Genovese Jewelers, one of the largest jewelers in the country, has a history of innovative design and an incomparable selection. Genovese believes the difference in the company\u2019s service is evident from the moment you first walk in the store. \u201cA core behavior of every salesperson is to greet [customers] quickly and warmly, and offer a beverage, whether it be a beer, wine, Champagne or soft drink,\u201d he says. \u201cWe encourage the customer to look around. Once seated, we pull out all the pieces related to what they are looking for, so they can try them on. In those rare occasions when one doesn\u2019t look good on, we\u2019re honest and tell them.\u201d

That kind of transparency throughout the process, from sketch to computer-edited and wax design to finished product, ensures clients get exactly what they want. \u201cWe do a rough drawing [based on] what they want, like something a 3-year-old drew, and it always amazes them that we create this beautiful piece of jewelry based off of this terrible picture,\u201d Genovese says. \u201cThe process can go anywhere from a week to three weeks. You get something of tremendous value for less money than you can find anywhere else in the states or overseas \u2013 and it\u2019s manufactured right here in St. Louis.\u201d

Laura Meyer

Laura Meyer has returned home \u2013 or nearly home, at least. After years in Colorado, this Edwardsville, Illinois, native has come back to the greater St. Louis area and founded her own beauty studio, Mineral and Root, this February in Maplewood.

\u201cI feel really fortunate to have found my space in Maplewood,\u201d says Meyer, an esthetician and makeup artist. \u201cOn trips back to St. Louis, I always looked forward to visiting the shops and restaurants on Manchester [Road] and Sutton Boulevard in Maplewood. Every time I came back, I noticed it was continuing to grow. There is a lot of love for small business in Maplewood, and I\u2019m proud to be a part of it.\u201d

Mineral and Root is a full beauty studio offering everything from makeup lessons to lash extensions to facials, Meyer explains. The products featured and used are made by \u201cindie brands\u201d \u2013 small, off-the-beaten-path lines she says have high standards for ingredients.

\u201cI\u2019m very selective about the products that I bring into my studio and am especially fond of small-batch, handmade skin care,\u201d Meyer says. She notes Nahla Beauty and Colorado Aromatics as examples, saying they provide a unique experience during facials. \u201cThey use blends of floral essences and herbs like lavender distilled fresh from the farm to enhance the sensory experience as well as leave you with glowing skin,\u201d says Meyer. \u201cI get \u2018this smells better than any lavender I\u2019ve ever smelled before\u2019 a lot! It\u2019s not a synthetic fragrance, and it\u2019s actually benefiting your skin.\u201d

This focus on natural ingredients and skin care was cemented during her time working in Colorado. Meyer entered this field in 2003 and was introduced to the founder of Alchemy Minerals, Bre Ortola Morris, in 2014. Alchemy Minerals makes natural, paraben-free makeup products. \u201cThe mineral makeup I had used in the past wasn\u2019t as easy to work with and didn\u2019t have the same effect on the skin as the Alchemy makeup,\u201d Meyer says. \u201cI loved the glow it gave without the powdery texture. I began working with Bre at Alchemy Face Bar full time.\u201d

In addition to her job with Alchemy Minerals, Meyer was working in the Colorado Aromatics lab with Dr. Cindy Jones. Jones\u2019 skin care line is an herb-based \u201cfarm-to-skin\u201d collection that allows consumers to know more about the products\u2019 origins than the average line. \u201cIt was invaluable to see ingredients in their raw form and learn their role in the formulations,\u201d she says. Through this, Meyer gained insight on cosmetics creation and the skin care experience.

\u201cI was so inspired by these women and what they had created; I knew when I moved back to St. Louis, I had to take these amazing brands back with me,\u201d Meyer says. \u201cI couldn\u2019t imagine doing my job without them. That is why I decided to open Mineral and Root: I\u2019m very passionate about sharing what I\u2019ve learned on my journey in this industry with my clients.\u201d

Another passion? Teaching clients how to navigate and use makeup. \u201cThe beauty industry can be so overwhelming, and I consider myself as a partner to my clients to help them sort through all the noise,\u201d she says. A two-hour lesson costs $75 and includes custom facial maps for at-home reference.

At Mineral and Root, Meyer offers not only makeup tutorials and the services using her favorite products but also lash extensions ($110 to $230), lash tinting ($20) and other salon staples. All offerings maintain the dedication to quality ingredients.

\u201cThe name Mineral and Root came from my passion for high-quality mineral makeup and plant-based skin care,\u201d Meyer says. \u201cI love simplicity, and when I was brainstorming names, I had written down those two words for inspiration and realized that together they pretty much define my mission.\u201d

From the name to the ingredients, simplicity is the backbone of this young local business.

clayton plaza wedding

As classic as a black-and-white film, saying, \u201cI do,\u201d inside the beautiful ballroom of an elegant hotel still remains a picture-perfect way to be married. \u201cThere\u2019s a misconception that having your wedding at a hotel can be very expensive,\u201d Sarah Johnson, director of sales and marketing at the Sheraton Clayton Plaza Hotel St. Louis, says. \u201cBack in the day, that may have been true, but we are able to work within a range of budgets.\u201d

At the Sheraton, weddings may range from small to big, with a versatility in floor plans and a list of valued vendors at hand. \u201cWe have a number of vendors we trust to do a great job,\u201d Johnson shares. \u201cBased on what the bride and groom want, we get them in touch with the vendors, so they can morph the space into the couple\u2019s vision.\u201d

That initial consultation begins with the Sheraton\u2019s wedding specialist. \u201cOur catering manager, Deedy Johnson, takes a consultative approach with couples,\u201d Johnson says. \u201cShe guides them through [the space], learning how they envision it \u2013 down to every detail \u2013 and finding the best way to create that.\u201d

The Sheraton ensures its staff stays up to date on the latest and greatest happenings in the wedding world. \u201cDeedy can step up and say, \u2018I\u2019ve seen this on the East and West coasts. You\u2019d be the first to do that here,\u2019\u201d Johnson explains. \u201cShe attended a conference in LA and brought back a suggestion, a doughnut wall, which has been a huge hit. It\u2019s the little things she keeps up with that can really make the bride and groom\u2019s night special.\u201d

From trendsetting details to the meal served on each plate, the hotel focuses on personalizing each couple\u2019s wedding. \u201cSmaller weddings don\u2019t always, but sometimes [do], have smaller budgets,\u201d Johnson notes. \u201cIf a couple really loves the venue, but their budget isn\u2019t matching the menu prices, we are happy to sit down with them and have our chef [present] new offerings. We always do a tasting for the couple.\u201d The hotel even specializes in kosher events, being one of only five venues in St. Louis to offer a dedicated kosher kitchen.

\u201cUnlike some freestanding venues, all of your [extras like] linens, flatware, the bar and dance floor are here,\u201d Johnson says. \u201cElsewhere, they could be an additional cost. We offer it all.\u201d Set aside a block of rooms for your out-of-town guests, who will appreciate the hotel\u2019s convenient location to shopping, restaurants and more, and make your affair one to remember. The Sheraton proves the hotel wedding is never going out of style. \u00a0

Matcha-lemon. Vanilla-almond. Rosemary-mint. Oats and milk. Sound tasty? You\u2019re not the only one who thinks so \u2013 but these flavors aren\u2019t meant to be eaten.

\u201cThe smells are very yummy, and because I whip my butters, I have had so many customers coming to my booth and thinking that it goes on a cracker,\u201d says La\u2019Crassia Wilderness, the 28-year-old South City resident and founder of Butter Love by L.C.

Instead, Butter Love creates all-natural body products aimed at healing dry skin. This includes scrubs, soaks and \u2013 the one your confused spoon likely reaches for \u2013 fluffy, hydrating body butters.

\u201cOne of the reasons I started Butter Love was because I suffered from dry skin,\u201d Wilderness says. \u201cOnce my mom introduced me to shea butter to heal my dryness, it immediately subsided. That\u2019s when I knew how powerful shea butter was.\u201d

Wilderness explains that while studying marketing at Columbia College Chicago, she and a friend would craft homemade products for natural hair using ingredients like shea butter, aloe, coconut oil and more. But the stress of college sent her home her junior year, and Wilderness says she hit a \u201cquarter-life crisis\u201d and landed with her father, unsure what to do next. She happened to be out of hair products, so she ordered a few on Amazon.

\u201cOnce everything was delivered, I started mixing,\u201d she says. \u201cThen I started researching all about carrier oils like jojoba, argan and sweet almond oil. It took off from there. I was obsessed. I started Butter Love in my room at my dad\u2019s house, mixing oils on the floor next to my bed.\u201d

Since her company\u2019s 2014 founding, Wilderness has launched a variety of products, each with its own unique benefits and handmade process. Take, for example, the Floral Milk Bath \u2013 a favorite of Wilderness and customers alike, meant to be poured into a warm bath for soaking. She starts with the milk.

\u201cI use dry milk because it works as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, younger-looking skin that\u2019s been hiding underneath,\u201d Wilderness says, noting the dry milk idea came from her father. \u201cThen grab your detoxifying properties.\u201d She notes salts including Dead Sea, pink Himalayan sea and Epsom.

\u201cOnce you mix all of those ingredients together, you add a little bit of tea leaves,\u201d Wilderness continues. \u201cThis milk bath in particular possesses rose petals, lavender buds, camomile and sage for cleansing, which are used to create a feeling of calm, inner peace and balance. The aromas of the teas are heavenly, and they make your bathtub look magical. Now that you have your bowl of magic, you take a wooden spoon and carefully mix like nobody\u2019s business.\u201d

Each \u201cbowl of magic\u201d made by Wilderness features a scent combo she says she personally loves. She also notes the benefits of essential oils and says they help her know when the products would be best used, such as the soothing aspect of lavender being added to a before-bed regimen. Other than the Floral Milk Bath, she cites the Vanilla Almond Body Butter and Rosemary and Mint Body Butter as her best-sellers.

Currently, Butter Love\u2019s handmade items can be found online (butterlovebylc.co) and at Heirloom Room (2116 Cherokee St.), Tiffany J Salon (4415 S. Kingshighway Blvd.) and Union Studio (1605 Tower Grove Ave.), with more locations coming soon, Wilderness says. Her products can also be spotted at various fairs and festivals, such as the recent Grand Market. Products are packaged in minimalist Mason jars and craft paper pouches, allowing the goodness inside to remain the focal point. Prices range from $10 to $20.

\u201cI believe that energy transfer is very real, so I do put a lot of love into Butter Love,\u201d Wilderness says. \u201cI make all of my products by hand because I want to transfer positive healing energy into my products with the intent to heal physically as well as spiritually.\u201d

Wilderness likes to say that the more you use her products, the more you don\u2019t have to use them. Compared to a drugstore product that leaves you wanting to reapply, she explains, Butter Love penetrates the skin for healing: \u201cAll of the products in my line are specifically made to promote healthy, nourished skin.\u201d

Wilderness says Butter Love has come a long way since its founding on the floor of her bedroom. \u201cI would have never thought that is what I would be doing,\u201d she relates, \u201cbut I know in my heart that this is what I\u2019m supposed to be doing!\u201d

We St. Louisans, of course, lack a nearby beach, but that doesn\u2019t mean we can\u2019t \u2026 well \u2026 fake the perfect beach-wave hairstyle, ladies. Even without expanses of sand and saltwater, achieve an effortlessly \u201cbeachy\u201d look by following just three simple steps:

Step 1:\u2002Braid wet hair. As the key to effortless-looking beach waves, braid wet hair \u2013 a fairly effortless task. More specifically, shower, twine your tresses in two regular or French braids, and then sleep on them. Leave 1 or 2 inches of hair at the bottom of each braid \u2013 the straight ends help with the beachy look. When you wake, remove the braids for perfectly wavy hair.

Step 2:\u2002Add more waves with a curling wand. Removing the braids leaves your new do still just a smidge incomplete. Weird kinks may need fixing, for instance. In that the most important aspect of this style remains the front pieces of hair framing your features, use a 1- or 1\u00bc-inch curling wand to wrap such pieces away from your face. But don\u2019t curl the hair all the way to the end of the strand; instead, keep 1 to 2 inches out at the bottom for the appearance of straighter ends.

Step 3:\u2002Add a sea salt texturizing spray. After curling the pieces of hair that need extra love, ladies, you\u2019ve got the perfect beachy style \u2013 almost. Your last task involves adding a sea salt texturizing spray to your locks. This step takes your waves to the next level; adding texture and grit to your hair turns your waves truly \u201cbeachy keen.\u201d Spritzing sea salt texturizing spray on your hair will let you trick everyone into believing you\u2019ve just spent a day at the beach!

In conclusion, ladies, if you can\u2019t roam Rio or stroll Saint-Tropez this summer but want to look as if you have, try this quick, easy hairstyle \u2013 and never forget that the more texture this do displays, the better!
