Lululemon

IN PREVIEW. Cult yogawear chain complete with creepy manifesto (“children are the orgasm of life”) and rabid “ambassadors,” willing to drop $100 on pair of roll-top yoga pants. Racerback tanks in eye-popping hues, butt-hugging cropped leggings the day uniform of the unemployed mom with two nannies. Moisture-wicking Lulu socks and “Technithongs.” Stores aim to be more inspirational community center than retail outlet; host free Sunday yoga, often followed by gratis light breakfast. Eat at your own risk.

John Allan’s

This men’s club is the type of place metrosexuals, homosexuals and girlfriend’s boyfriends crash for a manly makeover. It’s all about the haircuts here (John Allan trained under Jean Louis David back in the day), though the standard full-service visit includes a shoeshine, scalp massage, manicure and hot towel. Bring the boys: there’s a pool table, craft beer and TVs in a lounge to simply chill out while the girlfriend, boyfriend or boyfriend’s girlfriend shops upstairs. 

Spa Nautica at Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey

There’s nothing like a poolside rub-down, and the best place to do it is at this nautical-themed spa. There are seven treatment rooms, should you bring your entourage, and guests have access to the outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, and eucalyptus steam rooms. The spa is heavy on “organic,” so expect that whole health thing to be taken seriously here. Not that anything in LA is any different.

Exhale Hollywood

Exhale Angeleno cultists no longer have to trek to Santa Monica for their Core Fusion and Deep Flow. “Mind Body Spa” is now available inside Loews Hollywood with 7 treatment rooms, men and women stations (with steam room to boot), mani-pedi salon, co-ed relaxation lounges and a whole lot of zen. Seriously, there’s a Buddha statue in the hallway with a bowl of fruit (“offering”) at its feet. For treatments, expect massages, facials and non-Western (or some might say “bogus”) therapies like acupuncture and cupping. The spa knocked down some hotel rooms to make space for their signature Core Fusion classes debuting this summer, so look forward to barre squats.

DryBar

California phenom makes a home on the UES, where fashionable chicks can slap down a pair of twenties in exchange for fashion-model-quality locks. DryBar’s secret is that it keeps it simple. No cuts, no coloring, no aromatherapy (we hope), just washes and blowouts and you’re on your way to the bars and restaurants just a few stilettoed steps away. They call it a “Blow Dry Bar,” but there’s no booze, so bring your cosmo-filled thermos and get glam. That you’ll walk out with cash to spare is a fabulous bonus.

Bluemercury

Up from D.C., spunky makeup emporium dusts tasteful layer of body shimmer over Sephora’s turf. More intimate and carefully curated than the big S, stocked with the cultish likes of Darphin eye de-puffers and Molton Brown’s manly black pepper scrubs. Bobbi, Trish, and Laura fix department-store junkies. Slim house spa delivers outsized results. Waxing and kneading on tap, but facials, using in-store products, real reason to extend your retail journey.
