  • American Apparel
    The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear. But what many don't know about the brand?despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase?is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment. Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.

  • Hush Hush Bang Bang
    The owners of Hush Hush Bang Bang have provided a fun, eco-friendly work environment for their team of stylists for nearly a decade. While designing and building their salon, Kara and Wade incorporated recycled and reclaimed materials to create a functional and convivial atmosphere established on sustainable practices. The space now welcomes guests into an airy environment accented by lime green and vibrant florals, invigorating minds as hair techs invigorate manes with cut, color, and extension services. The stylists stay up to date with tress trends and new styling techniques by taking regular "field trips" to industry classes, and they use a mix of high-end and vegan hair products to accommodate all clients regardless of which shampoo they prefer to squeeze onto a baked potato. In an effort to give back to the planet and the community, stylists actively participate in recycling and water-saving initiatives and volunteer with the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

  • Barbie Barber Salon
    Barbie Barber Salon offers barbershop services to men and keeps the froufrou to a minimum. Though the Costa Mesa salon is staffed with expert, Pro Vidal Sassoon–trained stylists, its laidback atmosphere is more sports bar than beauty shop. Customers are greeted with complimentary drinks, and while they're getting haircuts and beard trims, a flat-screen TV displays brawny programming such as sports games, poker matches, and soap operas without the soap. Though the business is geared toward a male clientele, women looking for a relaxed, unpretentious salon experience are more than welcome to take advantage of the stylists' services.

  • Knit Schtick
    On Fridays, Frank Sinatra songs drift amid skeins of yarn. On Saturday mornings, The Beatles harmonize over a community table spread with coffee, tea, and British breakfast treats. Located in Newport Beach, Knit Schtick is a meeting place for knitters of all experience levels to hone their skills in good company. In Knitting 101 classes, beginners learn basics such as how to purl and how to produce a full-body cocoon out of three feet of thread. In general classes, those who already possess a solid knowledge of knitting techniques work on individual projects, looping yarn into scarves, wraps, socks, or blankets.

  • Halloween Club and Aahs
    Tastes in Halloween costumes change quickly, but the team at Halloween Club knows that some staples never go out of style. Taco costumes, for instance. Creepy masks, police uniforms, and pirate apparel aren't forgotten either, allowing patrons to finish their cosplay outfit, celebrate Halloween, or put together a really spectacular excuse for not going into work. To round out the store's selection, there's outlandish props, too, such as seven-foot-tall haunted tree automated to flail spookily on its own.
