Expert mane mavens at Blo-Out Lounge, which has garnered shout-outs from LA Girl, help guests choose one of five blow-out options, including Big Sexy Hair, with volume and curls, or the straight, sleek look of Urban Girl. Before sudsing up and styling locks, tress tamers evaluate the hair's condition and select a preexisting Bumble and bumble hair mask or whip up a custom creation. The masks soak into strands beneath a hot-towel wrap for about 10 minutes, and, depending on the mask, quench parched skull grass, bolster thickness, or make hair shinier than a bald head dipped in liquid gold.

A Feast for More Than the Taste Buds
The creative founders of Pinot's Palette are inspired by lots of things, but one quote from Picasso may define their business best: ?Every child is an artist," said the painter. "The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.? Pinot's Palette has one solution: laid-back painting sessions set at their studios and at local bars that let participants of any artistic level follow along to an artist's step-by-step instructions. The result is individual renditions of handsome paintings such as an autumn tree at dusk, a bright blue peacock, or a city skyline rising above bustling streets. Students take their paintings home with them at the end of the class and often end up displaying them on walls or giving them to a parent in exchange for hugs.
