Nordstrom Rack houses a dizzying array of high-fashion brands—some of it from the Nordstrom shelves and some of it straight from top-tier designers—that it sells for as much as 70% off retail prices. Every store stocks an average of 25,000 pairs of shoes, a foot-feast featuring hundreds of designer brands. Gals can suit up for slick, soggy streets with a duo of Report 'Louise' faux suede convertible boots ($46.90), while guys can stylishly saunter in a pair of suede-overlaid New Balance retro running shoes ($39.90). Nordstrom Rack's extensive collection of designer jeans keep wayward legs from impersonating arms, and with a bevy of items for women, men, juniors, and children, Nordstrom Rack's expansive stock is sure to please the palate of any hanger-hungry wardrobe.

At Michael Helene Salon Gallery, clients don’t just get a haircut—they are immersed into an experience. Upon arrival to the sun-soaked studio, clients embark upon a tour of the beautifying emporium, where they meet the staff and take in the luxurious accents of the space, such as ornately framed mirrors, pristine white walls, and verdant plants with retro pompadours. After they settle in, one of the amiable stylists—steeped in the salon’s foundation of education, personalization, consultation, and beautification—indulges them in their chosen treatment from a list of services including long-hair shaping, all-over color, and special-occasion updos, all referred to by the staff as hair artistry. “We see the client as our artistic medium, and the salon is actually the gallery,” explains Michael Helene, the titular owner who draws from her stints styling for the films Pirates of the Caribbean and Cold Mountain to make each of her clients feel like a star.

After 30 years as a barber, Joe Grondin longed to return to the time of the casual corner barbershop. Since he couldn't travel to the past, he decided to resurrect a bit of history in the present. He founded Roosters Men's Grooming Center to pair the classic vibe of a barbershop with modern technology, such as flat screen TVs with ESPN SportsCenter beamed directly to guests. His concept took off, and the barbershop spread to locations across the country. Today, many barbers and stylists follow in Joe's footsteps, giving timeless haircuts and signature seven-step hot shaves amidst a classic, masculine ambiance.

Ara Celi and Robert Godines founded Matador Men's Grooming after gaining years of experience as Rooster's franchisees. They wanted to bring the same quality of service to a venue that felt a little more local, like a classic barber shop. They and their barbers still partner dashing, close-cropped haircuts with shaves, head and face massages, and hot towel wraps. They also offer waxing services particularly focused on grooming the eyebrows, and hair tinting to banish the flecks of grey that show up as people age or slowly become statues.
