Owner and multicertified aesthetician Jennifer Woehle helms Beau Ideal House of Beauty's cadre of licensed pulchritude bolsterers, performing spa services that range from dramatic eyelash extensions to facials and body scrubs. A lineup of facials refurbishes weary façades, tailoring treatments to skin types in order to fight such visage blemishers as bacteria, dryness, and meringue-pie projectiles. Additionally, custom eyelash extensions, applied by a team of specially certified professionals, are affixed to eye awnings with medically approved adhesive in a variety of lengths, curls, and thickness. Low-temperature waxing treatments use natural resins to oust unwanted hair and errant tumbleweeds from corporeal plains, whereas myriad massage, scrub, and body-peel options leave musculatures relaxed and rejuvenated.
Bolt Barbers' mastermind, "Mohawk Matt" Berman, and his passionate, professional cutting crew of crew-cutters welcome fellas of all coifs into a contemporary yet old-school dudemosphere where—for a few sweet moments—they can stop sucking in their guts, noses, and earlobes. Bolt is too laid-back to accept reservations, so just drop in, plop down in a comfy chair, and be yourself while hanging out with fellow unkempt dudes in need of a good kemping. When your turn comes, Bolt's barbers will treat your frazzled follicles to the signature Shear Dude service, which aims to improve each cranium's character by drastically reducing its thread count. As you talk sports, sporks, Spocks, and other Y-chromosome-tickling topics, Bolt's careful craftsmen will machete a trail through your rugged head terrain and climb the summit of any widow's peaks with a meticulous flair—leaving all domesticated Vikings feeling confident, clear-headed, and free of excess facial frondescence.
Wax Candy's warm, friendly vibe has much to do with its four founding aestheticians—who are friends themselves. They've been known to cheer on clients braving their first Brazilian, and to hand out the occasional lollipop. But cleanliness is equally important to this foursome. Each session sees them pouring azulene wax into new biodegradable cups, which are then disposed of at the end to prevent double dipping.
Medology's doctor and staff revivify bodies with their toolkit of cosmetic services. Ranging from dermal fillers and hormone therapy to laser skincare treatments, the treatments battle wrinkles, remove blemishes, and combat the effects of age. Additionally, their laser light blasts pigmentation in tattoos, as well as corrects skin spots and removes wrinkles.
Allen and Richard Wattenberg took over the reins at Ross Cutlery in 1964. By that time, the shop was already 34 years old and predominantly dealt with knife-sharpening services. While the brothers and their staff have continued the shop's legacy of fixing up dull knife blades and haircutting tools, they've steadily populated their shelves with professional-grade haircutting tools, sporting knives, collectible swords, and kitchen-cutlery sets from Henckels, Trident, and Forschner. Their 2,300-square-foot shop rests on the ground floor of the Bradbury Building, which is an architectural landmark and the proud father of a rambunctious little parking garage.
