Whenever Brian Corby bathed his dog Presley, she shook and squirmed, flooding the bathroom and exhausting her owner. Taking her to the groomers was hardly better: careless clippers nicked her belly and chipped her nails too short, dashing her dreams of modeling in poker dog portraits. Fed up, Brian enlisted his long-time pal Greg to come up with an alternative, and the result was Green Dog Wash. They staff professional dog groomers whose exacting standards dictate that fur is cleansed with natural shampoos, teeth are brushed, and ears and eyes are cleaned. Owners can also bathe their furry companions themselves in a professional grooming center with tubs, shampoos, and towels, avoiding the hassles of cleaning up at home. When pets drop by one of Green Dog Wash's two locations, they often pull their owners over to the gift section, which stocks eco-friendly treats and toys. The goods, including Natural Balance dry dog food, West Paw Design beds, and K-99 natural treats, double as enticing bribes for dogs reluctant to shower off.
Andres Tobar performed his first haircut at the age of 13. The Los Angeles native spent long summer days and weekends at the salon where his mother, Dulmary Sabater, worked. After training at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, he earned a specialty in color, displayed his dos in shows around the world, became a Platform Artist at the Los Angeles International ICE Show, and sculpted the hair of supermodel Niki Taylor. At L.A. Gallery Hair & Make-Up Studio, Andres joins a team of Los Angeles–trained stylists and makeup artists. To ensure each client has access to the latest fashions and beauty techniques, the styling pros update their know-how from sources such as Bumble and bumble University, Vidal Sassoon Academy, L’Oréal Professionnel, and Motives Cosmetics. The stylists even help to push the industry forward by producing their own photo shoots, fashion shows, and training courses. Amid a rotating display of art crafted by local artisans, clients surrender their hair and faces to stylists. Beautifiers update hues with ombre color shading and INOA ammonia-free color or leave dos with a striking new look after a custom cut. The resident makeup artist, Claudia Tobar, also puts her practiced hands to work, helping clients to highlight their natural beauty until they're as tempting as Cleopatra driving an ice-cream truck.

The first mobile HydroDog station went on patrol in Australia in 1994, bringing dog-bathing and grooming services directly to clients' homes. Back stateside in 2011, Anthony Amos launched a fleet of blue, dog-shaped trailers, towed by his groomer's vehicles, kicking off his own HydroDog franchise. Furry friends hop aboard the whimsical, climate-controlled trailers during appointments. There, groomers clean dogs with a minimum of two tearless shampoos, de-mat tangled hair, and condition fur before cleansing the ears and smoothing the nails. A citrus treatment free of harsh chemicals and pesticides wards off pests such as fleas, ticks, or smaller dogs hiding in fur. After sessions, HydroDog's groomers disinfect all tools and equipment.
Salon Paz borrows its name from the Spanish word for peace, which is exactly what the staff hopes to bring to the customers who enter into the relaxing, sage-green space. After admiring the salon's artwork––which is all created by the staff––clients settle in to plush, chocolate-colored styling chairs to put their strands in the hands of seasoned stylists or put their feet up to enjoy the soothing massage that accompanies each pedicure. They'll also enjoy peace-of-mind knowing the salon reaches for high-quality shampoos and conditioners from Paul Mitchell and complexion-clearing skincare products by Keyano. They also use all-vegan hair color by Pravana, which are free of sulfates, sulfites, and parabens, and are never tested on animals, no matter how much they beg.
