At Ciao Bella Hair Studio, talented stylists welcome clients into relaxed environs, setting heads at ease as advanced cutting techniques stylize locks. With today’s deal stylist Jamie (Lepeirs) Knoer trims tresses to jettison split ends, add bounce, and help hair fit more neatly into bobsledding helmets. A conditioning treatment smoothes and strengthens strands, nourishing filaments to a silken shine. After head threads have been replenished with nutrients, Knoer sculpts a style that reflects each guest’s personality or pays homage to a favorite game-show host.

The style mavens at Splash Panic ensconce clients in eclectic West Coast–inspired apparel culled from L.A., New York, and around the globe. The black, gathered jersey fabric of the Jenny top ($30) swaddles torsos in soft textures, while its lace cutouts provide air holes for hyperventilating scarves. Show off your art literacy with a tan V-neck creation tee ($30) emblazoned with images from a Sistine Chapel fresco, or keep cash cozy in the side-slung pocket of the Remington hip-zip jacket ($70). Alternately, camouflage yourself in the pink and golden blooms of the flora dress ($45), whose ruffled neckline leaves one shoulder bare to turn coldly toward unwelcome polka partners. Shipping ($5–$7) is not included for online orders.
