Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe live on at Lavish Necessities. They're present in the eye bat of every woman who bears a set of eyelash extensions inspired by the timeless beauties. Whereas the Betty set matches Bette's au natural glamour, the Audrey extensions look like hers did—as if they've been coated with just a touch of mascara. Marilyn lashes, on the other hand, evoke the bombshell by framing eyes in lush, striking fringe that's impossible to ignore. Clients can augment freshly adorned faces with subtle airbrush tans.

President and vice-president John and Cara Eckerman have developed an efficient boot-camp program that effectively cultivates muscle farms with a fruitful yield. Expert instructors lead new recruits through 45-minute classes that fluidly meld stretching, core-toning, and strength-boosting exercises into full-body fat-blasting sessions. Motivated groups help propel fitness-seekers throughout high-intensity interval training that sheds calories and stress faster than a robo-lion’s rise to the top of the food chain. A convenient schedule will leave busy boot campers with enough time to maintain their normal lives, regular routines, and Chia Pet collections, while indoor facilities ensure that visitors will get a workout regardless of rain, snow, or locust swarms.
Your hair’s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it—learn why with Groupon’s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
In his 16 years of hairstyling experience, Mark Harmon has seen a lot of fads come and go. So rather than simply copy a trend, he works closely with his clients to come up with individual styles that will make them feel beautiful but still work with their particular lifestyle. But while his innovative methods and intense training make him adept at styling, coloring, or designing updos on the fly, he understands that many clients have trouble verbalizing their desires, and so he encourages clients to bring in pictures of hairstyles or celebrity mug shots in order to help direct their service.
