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.
Catering to gentlemen who are looking for a high-quality, old-fashioned haircut experience, Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club delivers sharp-looking shaves and haircuts in a cultured, old-fashioned barbershop environment. If you opt for a haircut (a $25 value), the friendly barber crew will also wax your choice of eyebrows, nose, or ears (a $10 value), allowing the boldest of features to complement your well-kempt locks. If you opt for a micro-fine straight-razor shave (a $35 value), your steady-handed barber will smoothen skin from the collar up, leaving your neck and facial regions more touchable than silk and more silky than masculine charm.
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.

After 30 years as a barber, Joe Grondin longed to return to the time of the casual corner barbershop. Since he couldn't travel to the past, he decided to resurrect a bit of history in the present. He founded Roosters Men's Grooming Center to pair the classic vibe of a barbershop with modern technology, such as flat screen TVs with ESPN SportsCenter beamed directly to guests. His concept took off, and the barbershop spread to locations across the country. Today, many barbers and stylists follow in Joe's footsteps, giving timeless haircuts and signature seven-step hot shaves amidst a classic, masculine ambiance.
