It's been a hot minute since we've refreshed our Racked 38 beauty edition, and there's no better time than now to give our list a little facelift. Since our last roundup, we've seen plenty of new prettifying and pampering places pop up around town, from instant beautification services to head-to-toe concept shops. But like those dreaded yet much-needed blackhead-busting nose strips, it was time to get down and dirty—and while it definitely hurt, it felt oh-so-good to make way for our new faves.
This time around, we've swapped out celeb-faved vets like Andy LeCompte and Warren-Tricomi for hip up-and-comers like Assembly and The Well. Since Angelenos enjoy their fair share of natural rays, we've ditched the tanning salons and opted for a few more eco-friendly options, like Lush Cosmetics and quickie facial bar Face Haus. Without further ado (and in A to Z order), here are our top supply stores, salons, spas, scent spots and more to appease every beauty buff's budget and desires.
