The stylists at Salon Istanbul are hair-color specialists?nothing can stop them from achieving the ideal shade for each client. To complement a bold new hue or subtle face-framing highlights, they offer on-trend cuts, smoothing keratin treatments, and fanciful updo styles for special occasions. Stylists ensure that brides-to-be avoid any hitches, even offering a "dress-up" box full of accessories to see what will best complement their wedding-day hair, dress, and blue jelly sandals. Whatever the service, guests are welcome to enjoy on complimentary snacks and drinks, and they can even plop down in front of the studio's fire as hair color sets.
The newly renovated Cosset Hair Studio & Spa delivers a range of classic and cutting-edge hairstyles via cuts and coloring services. Modern salon chairs face full-length mirrors, letting clients watch as stylists transform their locks. In a private treatment room, aestheticians tackle dirt and excess oil during skin-clearing facials. Not all of Cosset Hair Studio & Spa?s clients get pampered at the studio, though. Stylists will take their services to clients, prepping hair and makeup in the comfort of clients' own home or hovercraft.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
