I must confess: I am a slave to fashion, I adore shopping, I try to buy at least one or two on- trend fashion items each season and oh yeah, I’m on a budget! Although it might be easy to shop for the latest and greatest fashions at designer boutiques, most of us can’t afford it. So over the last several years, especially since the recession, I have made it my mission to scout fabulous and fashionable stores throughout LA that carry a plethora of swoon-worthy fashion trends for under $100.

Today's $20 Groupon gets you a $50-value MVP haircut at the sports-themed Reeder's Barbershop. Being an MVP at Reeder's (which looks sort of like a basketball court with blue stars painted on glossy hardwood) means one of its stylish stylists gives you a head massage, hand massage, hot towel, and nape shave with your haircut. If a lovely lady making hair-magic doesn't entertain you, a free beer or soda and a private flatscreen with DirecTV access probably will. If that still doesn't entertain you, request access to the barbershop's underground hybrid-animal petting zoo. But the haircut should be cause enough to head to 11515 W. Pico Blvd.; Reeder's is so sure its savvy stylists give the best trim in LA that it's free if you don't like it.
Bellacure's classic manicure includes a softening soak, nail and cuticle shaping, hand massage, moisturizing treatments, and a fresh coat of shiny polish (a $20 value). The Super Duper pedicure goes beyond the basics (which include a soak, nail shaping, cuticle coddling, calf and foot massage, moisturizing treatment, and polish), adding a luxurious walnut scrub to exfoliate and a clay mask and hot-towel wrap to cleanse and moisturize (a $45 value). After your lavish mani and pedi, you will be sent home with a jar of Cuccio milk-and-honey-scented butter-blend cream (a $16 value), Cuccio sea-salt scrub (a $22 value), and a ceramic foot file (a $5 value) to maintain your newly made-over mittens and flippers from home.
Face to Face Los Angeles sprang from the fertile, well-moisturized mind of Robert van den Hurk, who wanted to make the latest advances in beauty technology available in a fashionable day spa. Aestheticians perform anti-aging skincare services with a proprietary line of products mentioned on Examiner.com. Body wraps help to funnel infrared heat deep down to help to break up cellulite deposits, and clinical facials clear out pores with the power of galvanic currents and shouting "fire!" near patches of congested skin.
Though Salon Xia exists within a century-old cottage, its interior is nowhere near outdated. And that’s because owner Mark Mayner decided to keep the space airy, bright, and clean through the use of stained wooden accents and large, sun-soaked windows. Such contemporary touches wrap around the salon space, where stylists can often be found coloring and highlighting hair with high-end products including Aveda Full Spectrum and Redken Color Fusion dyes. The stylists also reach for Unite haircare products as they create new 'dos that are further informed by ongoing teachings from the Toni and Guy Academy.
