Each and every service at Katsu Hair begins with a consultation and ends with a swipe of a membership card. The eponymous owner—an experienced Beverly Hills stylist who originally hails from Japan—leads a talented cast, all of whom discuss cut, color, and style options with clients before kicking off treatments. Sudsy shampoos and tantalizing scalp massages bolstered by Pureology products accompany every hair service, which range from simple cuts to Ombre color treatments and Brazilian blowouts. The staff doles out complimentary membership cards to new clients, allowing them acquire points toward discounts or future one-on-one basketball games after each service. Katsu Hair also hosts monthly happy hour receptions, complete with wine, food, and plenty of style tips.

Earthly Body's collection of natural, vegan, and paraben-free skincare and bodycare products has caught the eye of an array of media outlets, such as Allure and Lucky magazines, with its hydrating hemp-oil bases and cruelty-free lineup. Candles melt into a candle pot with wax that can also be used as a warm massage oil, postcleansing moisturizer, or elbow cream for dry pet elephants. Earthly Body’s haircare line, Marrakesh, infuses each tendril-smoothing solution with Moroccan argan oil and three signature scents (original, High Tide, and Dreamsicle) to bolster frizz-free manes. Mineral-based makeups dust across facescapes without the harsh chemicals or pore-clogging guilt found in animal-tested products.
Licensed cosmetologist and expert mane-tamer Liz combs Brazilian Blowout Zero formula through frizzy 'dos to straighten, fortify, and polish strands. The smoothing solution latches on to locks and cloaks them in a protein force field, simultaneously evicting fuzz and imbuing locks with gaze-grabbing shine. With no formaldehyde products released at any point of the process, the formula boosts hair health and strength without drilling clients through reps of braid pull-ups. Fetchingly flat coifs can remain uncoiled for up to 12 weeks after the two-hour appointment, which requires no additional downtime.
