With its sleek decor, complimentary beer, and flat-screen TVs filling the background noise with Phillies-game highlights, I’m Sergio nods to the men's clubs of yesteryear as the barbershop’s talented stylists give each client a modern new ’do. Hair services range from a basic shampoo and style or beard trim, helping guys look spiffy in just a few minutes, to the more indulgent The Cut package, which includes a relaxing warm-towel treatment and head massage. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves showcase masculine cleft chins, and manly manicures soften hands hardened by too many high fives with the Hamburger Helper representative. To keep up appearances between cuts, I'm Sergio also offers free clean-ups. :m]]
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.
Whether with clippers or scissors, Gregory Rossi demonstrates a deft barber's touch that he's honed for nearly 20 years. At Rossi's Hair Studio, he and his brother Nicholas tap into their industry experience to provide cuts, shaves, and other hair services for both male and female clients. Men can polish up their looks with a standard or buzz cut, hot shaves, and even men's color camo services, which can conceal grey hairs or toy soldiers hiding in parts. Rossi's also offers women's cuts in addition to highlight, coloring, and waxing treatments.
At Silk Body Waxing Studio, licensed aesthetician Kristen Whiting might be the one removing hair from your body, but you're the one in control. Kristen allows her clients to determine the speed and technique of her waxing services. For especially sensitive skin, she might take a slow, section-by-section approach, whereas those who prioritize speed receive a swift yet gentle procedure. Regardless of their preference, one rule remains firm: no double dipping.
Kristen caters to men and women alike with her supply of cream-based and hard wax. She specializes in Brazilians, which remove every strand of hair from the front and back of the pelvic region. This and other body waxing services leave physiques smooth and primed for summer activities, such as hitting the beach or worshipping Ra. In addition to areas such as the chest, underarms, and abdomen, Kristen also waxes parts of the face, from brows to sideburns to lips. And, as a trained skincare professional, she can even accompany clients on shopping trips for skin products and provide other advice for keeping pores healthy.
After guests have had a chance to kick back with a drink in the waiting area, Slice Hair Studio's stylists get busy mapping out a custom cranial blueprint. Once they have a plan in mind, these scissor whizzes can do everything from tidy up appearances with a simple trim to add depth and dimension with coloring and texturizing treatments. The primping doesn't have to stop with hair, though? the staffers can also put the final touches on new looks with tanning and waxing services.
In addition to taking care of guests, the stylists do their best to take care of the planet, embracing environmentally friendly business practices whenever possible. This means that they stock the shelves with natural and organic hair-care products, use energy-efficient appliances, and recycle leftover trimmings to make wigs for endangered bald eagles.
