At Super Pet Expo, animal lovers congregate amid bustling merchandise booths and exhibitors showcasing lively animal entertainment. Attendees arrive with dogs or domesticated wildebeests on leashes to peruse collars, pet clothing, and snacks from scores of diverse vendors. Animal talent agency Pawsitively Famous regales expo-goers with tales of the Aflac duck's off-camera Shakespeare work, as Marshal Steve's Pony Rides treat tykes to exhilarating ponyback jaunts. Other entertainment includes auditions for "Stupid Pet Tricks" on The Late Show, held at 5 p.m. on Saturday. Pet lovers can also go home with a new furry companion adopted from an on-site rescue agency.
The gentle whir of blow dryers fills the air at Salon Luna as stylists create everything from simple children's cuts to glamorous hairdos. New clients and salon regulars relax, sipping from mugs of coffee, and stylists shampoo, blow-dry, style, and highlight their manes. Hair-texturizing services include keratin-infused straightening treatments, relaxers, and perms—each designed to keep hair as glossy as a celebrity sporting a new coat of carnauba wax. In addition to hair services, staff members finish off new looks with pore-cleansing facials, waxing, and manicures and pedicures enhanced with paraffin dips or whirlpool baths.
Kindle & Boom's staff of savvy style savants provides a full range of salon services in a professional, contemporary atmosphere. Split up with split ends by escaping to a women's haircut and blow-dry ($60+) appointment, or tame rebellious goggle bushes with an eyebrow wax ($15). A base color ($60+) with partial highlights ($85+) brightens dim-witted locks, and after long road trips, nothing cleans dirty mindshields better than the European facial ($80). If you're looking for the coiffure equivalent of orthodontia, opt for a Japanese straightening treatment ($100+/hour). Brazilian waxing ($40) brings sunny skies to the central region, and even more southerly services such as full-leg waxes ($60) and pedicures ($40) impress short adults and tall babies.
