The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear.
But what many don't know about the brand?despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase?is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment.
Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.
The Polished Edge Salon's team of experienced stylists sculpts hairdos with artistic precision and enhances treatments with products from top industry brands such as Bed Head, Schwarzkopf, and Paul Mitchell within a softly lit space accented by floor-to-ceiling windows.

Delving deep into follicles with reckless abandon, deep-conditioning treatments saturate weary strands with vitality enriching formulas, which allow full highlights to vibrantly accentuate facial features. Appointments may take between one and three hours depending on the package purchased, although complimentary WiFi and recordings of President Roosevelt's fireside chats ensure that clients remain entertained.
