Inside the sunny La Peer Beauty shop, patrons assisted by licensed pulchritude professionals browse glass shelves stacked high with candy-colored OPI nail polish, high-end skincare and hair products, and fragrances in twinkling bottles or room diffusers. Colognes such as Thymes’s Agave Nectar leave a bright, crisp fragrance on dermises, and skincare regimens from brands such as Dermalogica treat façades stressed out by harsh weather or the thought that professional wrestling is fake. An arsenal of curling and straightening irons and hair-dryer attachments help home stylists create their ideal dos, and hairsprays such as L’Oreal Elnett keep styles fast in place. An onsite salon puts La Peer’s products to the test as stylists trim hair or add extensions, aestheticians treat skin with facials and eye treatments, and wax techs whisk away unwanted hairs.

Combining elements of old-school American and London barbershops, The Brighton Shave Co. is a sophisticated spot for a close, comfortable, classic wet-shave. Brighton Classix beard-slayers begin by examining your chin to determine the most effective skin-preserving products. Then, armed with straight razors, hot towels, and the finest skincare products, they’ll begin your transformation from mere man into refined man about mantown. After they expertly slather on a mask of lather, they’ll summarily deforest your face’s stubble jungle while a warm, wet towel moistens your dermis and holds its pore doors open. Throughout the process, your face will stay as smooth and soft as unfrozen margarine.

Whether they're getting ready to go out for the day or seeking a look worthy of the red carpet, each customer receives a one-on-one consultation before their treatment.
Upon arriving at Hope's penthouse beauty studio, clients can ogle at a line of colorful eye shadow palettes, lip-glosses, and mascara before partaking in a full makeup lesson or a relaxing spa service. To create smooth face canvases, Hope and her dedicated team of aestheticians plump fine lines and thicken eyelashes with oxygen-infused treatments as well as exfoliate epidermises with gentle Vitamin C and lactic peels. Hope and company also doll-up clients with Dream Catcher hair extensions and handcrafted mink eyelash extensions that create instant drama without having to hire reality stars to cry in the corner during your wedding.
When it comes to facial features, eyebrows often get overlooked. Though they might not have the flash of a dazzling smile or the effortless grace of high cheekbones, brows can still make or break a fashionable look. Threading expert Marco Ochoa is familiar with the power of a well-arched brow and instills his team with the same understanding that helps them carry out Ecobrow's facial-threading services. Evidence of his precise depilation appears every day on magazine covers and television interviews across the country. Clients including supermodel Camila Alves, actress Malin Akerman, and secretary of Health and Human Services Khloe Kardashian have all benefitted from Ochoa's dedication to sleek, fuzz-free faces.
