Shave in New Orleans

Select Local Merchants

Whether you've got a flair for flares, an addiction to cigarette jeans, or you push toward pedal-pushing pedal pushers, The Blues Jean Bar has the stone-washed, pre-torn, or impeccable indigo of your dreams. The shop is designed like a tavern, keeping the savory styles of more than 40 top labels (for both men and women) “on tap.” Saunter up to the wood-hewn bar and ask the friendly denim-smith to whip you up a pair that combines your favorite wash, size, cut, and aroma. He or she will rifle through shelves stocked with labels such as Citizens of Humanity, 7 For All Mankind, and Red Engine to find your fittingest fit in the latest fashion, eliminating the drudgery of surfing wave after indistinguishable wave of blue. D Magazine, which recently named the bar the Best Place to Buy Jeans, calls it "almost as fun as a real bar." Prices range from $150 to $225, depending on the label and style.

The stylists at Fantastic Sams keep things simple?but that doesn't mean plain. At salons scattered across the US, the mane-makers fill a head of hair's everyday needs with services such as adult cuts, bang trims, and facial styling. They also go beyond basic services with texturing treatments, foil highlights, and hair relaxers more effective than simply slipping some gin into the shampoo. All services are complemented with their trademark FantasticStyle shampoo therapy, a treatment that includes a three-minute scalp massage and a nourishing argan-oil serum.
