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.

As the closest layer of clothing to our bodies, underwear should be stylish, but more importantly, it should feel as soft and comfortable as a tender hug from a mother panda. That's where MeUndies.com comes in. The company fills underwear drawers with monthly shipments of high-quality, comfortable undergarments for men and women.
When members join, they specify their size and preferred style of underwear. On the first day of each month thereafter, an email lands in their inboxes with an array of colors and patterns to choose from. Comfy socks; soft, slim-fitting T-shirts; and other basics are also available. If members decide they don't need a new pair of underwear for any particular month, they can skip that month, they can put their membership on hold, or they can incorporate the spare pair into the family dog's superhero suit.

And if you’re just looking for gear to get you prepped for your next ride, Beverly Hills Bike Shop’s got that, too.
