To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

The experienced scissor shifters at Scoreboard Haircuts for Men sculpt and style gentlemen's manes with precision, using Paul Mitchell products. The package begins with a shampoo and conditioning, in which the hair is cleansed, pampered, and serenaded by nutrients doing their best Barry White impression. Then a scalp massage tenderizes the head terrain, relaxing both client and pelt for the forthcoming haircut. Any style, from shaggy to slim, receives the shear shaping, and trimmed hair unites in common length. A reshampoo pretties up the new ’do and softens mop-tops for shaping and styling. Finally, the hot-towel treatment graces facial surfaces, and renewed cheeks and chins emerge as clean and textured as a grade-school play about sandpaper factories.

Candles flicker inside the marble fireplace, sending droplets of light into the 1920s colonial revival?style home that houses Quintana?s Barber & Dream Spa. Hardwood floors and tan leather seating compose a warm color palette, and WiFi?installed by the ghost of the original architect?keeps busy guests connected. After appointment reminders land in their email inboxes, clients step into the earth-toned sanctuary for services ranging from basic mani-pedis and beard trims to all-day spa excursions. Guests choose services from a menu of massages, facials, waxing, and haircare, which can be combined into packages for individuals and couples.

Quintana's soothing sanctuary doesn't just speak for itself. Patrons banded together to vote the salon into CityVoter's top five for Best Massage, Barber, and Mani-Pedi in 2013. The spa's acclaim page also spotlights press recognition of Friendliest Staff, Best-Looking Storefront, and Most Helpful Combs.
