Paul Mitchell–certified stylists tame coifs within Lucky Three Barber Shop's rock-themed studio, decked out with vinyl records, classic album covers, and prints of throwback cinema stars. The staff keeps up with the latest in men’s and women’s hairstyles, and won’t hesitate to perform a total hair overhaul if given the go-ahead. Aestheticians are also on hand to wax eyebrows into shape and apply makeup for special occasions. For the guys, a hot beard and head shave will leave skin as silky-smooth as a newborn saxophone.
For 15 years, TintMax has provided vehicles with both cosmetic and practical upgrades. Window tinting––the shop's specialty––is done with computer-plotting technology, which produces films customized to fit any make and model, thereby eliminating sloppy-looking jobs and ensuring that cars never show up at a party wearing the same tint as the host. In the detailing department, staffers pry off surface dirt from cars with thorough hand washes and then rebuild show-room sheens with orbital waxes and interior conditioners. After cars are cleaned and groomed, they can strut into TintMax’s electronics section and slip into a new Kenwood stereo or prep for winter with a Viper remote starter.
A parade of fixtures from brands such as Kohler, Moen, and Grohe tempts kitchen and bath savants at The Somerville Showroom. An Aqueous single-hole bathroom faucet shoots a steady flow of water into waiting basins ($111.07), and a Kohler Cachet elongated toilet seat snaps off easily to be cleaned or used as an emergency Frisbee ($59.30). Alternately, a polished chrome Kohler Flipside showerhead caresses soul cases with four different flavors of spray—a traditional shower, a dense and drenching spa mist, a pulsating water massage, and a circular-patterned spray ($95.30). Homeowners can also bring along detailed plans of a bathroom or kitchen remodel, and knowledgeable staff members can advise which faucet finishes will complement countertops or pink-and-red Hello Kitty color schemes.
MJ Home Services’ techs cleanse carpets with non-toxic, biodegradable solutions that leave behind no residue and are safe for kids and pets. Wielding high-power steam-cleaning equipment, they tackle carpets bedraggled by stains, soil, and entwined gunk such as gum or wax. They also install new flooring to replace those trampled by kids, pets, and stilts, or show floors love by adding multi-coat finishes. Trained in the latest mold standards and armed with gear such as HEPA air-filtration systems, air-scrubbers, and abrasive media blasters, they also restore homes damaged by flood and mold.
