Retro fashion heavy on the wiggle, with a bit of swing and some contemporary designs as well. A great source for dramatic body-conscious silhouettes that play well with both the modern and yesteryear accessories offered in the handbag and jewelry sections. They also carry bath and body goods from Lollia, Tokyo Milk, and Dolce Mia, scented candles from Voluspa, oversized sunglasses, and mini hats for cocktail hour.

Handmade soap inspired by video games, SF characters, and The Internets, where one can purchase bars shaped like 20-sided die, social networking icons, keyboard commands, and other vegan-friendly dollops of nerdish delight. Custom is welcome in colors and fragrances, including scent-free soaps for sensitive schnozzes. Thanks, Miko!

This “cosmeceutical” tattoo aftercare product purports to brighten the colors of subdermal ink while protecting against long-term fading. The SPF 20 certainly doesn’t hurt against the damage of sunlight, and the two formulas include a gentler p.h. for sensitive skin and, ahem, delicate areas. While I haven’t personally tried this product, it sounds like a decent possibility for skin art that’s gone dull, especially when the price tag isn’t too bad for giving it a trial run.

This tiny chain revives the barbershop atmosphere of the 40’s, offering straight razor shaves and “the cleanest haircut in Southern California.” For those too far away to get their pomps, puffs, boogies, or waterfalls maintained at the source, their hair goods can be bought over the ‘net – the pomade comes in a convenient bulk size, and the aftershave looks like a choice retro scent for the dudes. Thanks, Andrew!

Dread care and decor. They stock all the waxes, shampoos, conditioners, and tighteners needed for healthy maintenance, plus dyes and bleach, and special combs and anti-frizz tools to keep everything neat. Tams, wraps, wooden hairpins, and beads with little googly eyes make up the adornment section, and they’ve got some unusual specialty products to cut down on all the little frustrations that can come with knotting up your hair: microfibre towels to halve drying time, showercaps and sock hats for keeping all the locks out of the way while bathing or sleeping, rubber bands that won’t quickly snap to death. Also body polish, club toys, ear stretching kits, and a little hemp clothing.

Gigantic array of body jewelry from Industrial Strength, Half Tone Bodyworks, Gorilla Glass, Tawapa, Kaos Softwear, Diablo Organics, Borneo Joe’s, Little Seven, Metal Mafia, and quite a few more. The gamut runs from shiny rings to coral plugs, coconut shell swirls through glass claws, lots to look through and they also have a bit of body-mod aftercare stuff too.

A vegan, eco-friendly bath and body goods shop that plasters their wares in pulp. Bar soaps, body butters, and perfume oils with names such as “Love, Moisture, Murder,” “500 Thieves,” and the spine-tingling tea tree creation of “The Black Soap Horror.” Samples are available to try before you buy. Thanks, Bellaphile!
