The staff at Elegant Flooring can help customers figure out what material is best suited for each room of the house, from a high-traffic family room to a lesser-used crying hole. The staffers arrive at clients' homes ready to answer questions concerning carpet color, explain the dual functionality of laminates, and show off samples of the imported porcelain, ceramic, and stone tiles that they’ve curated. Once clients feel confident about their flooring choice, staffers lay down the new stuff and back it with a buyer’s-edge warranty.
Paul Mitchell–certified stylists tame coifs within Lucky Three Barber Shop's rock-themed studio, decked out with vinyl records, classic album covers, and prints of throwback cinema stars. The staff keeps up with the latest in men’s and women’s hairstyles, and won’t hesitate to perform a total hair overhaul if given the go-ahead. Aestheticians are also on hand to wax eyebrows into shape and apply makeup for special occasions. For the guys, a hot beard and head shave will leave skin as silky-smooth as a newborn saxophone.
For 15 years, TintMax has provided vehicles with both cosmetic and practical upgrades. Window tinting––the shop's specialty––is done with computer-plotting technology, which produces films customized to fit any make and model, thereby eliminating sloppy-looking jobs and ensuring that cars never show up at a party wearing the same tint as the host. In the detailing department, staffers pry off surface dirt from cars with thorough hand washes and then rebuild show-room sheens with orbital waxes and interior conditioners. After cars are cleaned and groomed, they can strut into TintMax’s electronics section and slip into a new Kenwood stereo or prep for winter with a Viper remote starter.
Dave, the founder of All Star Waste & Recycling, never shies away from a dirty job. He cleans out hoarded trash, disposes of asbestos, and picks up after construction, in addition to providing regular curbside trash pick-up for clients. When it comes down to it, his clients are the reason he chose his line of work. "I wanted to start a waste removal company that catered to small contractors and homeowners," he says, describing his favorite moments on the job as the times he gets to see a satisfied customer's smile. One customer he recalls even gave him a hug after he helped clean out a home in particularly dire straights, saving them from just having to throw the whole thing away.
