Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

For this edition of the Racked 38 we're venturing into prettier territories—beauty! From salons and spas to makeup counters and apothecaries all the way to threading salons and laser hair removal, this edition will leave you will all the knowledge to get beautified to your heart's desire. And while us Angelinos know that 500 bucks can get you an amazing haircut with Andy LeCompte himself (yes, his salon it is on our list), we're also branching out with lesser known and more affordable options for everything from a bang trim to a gel manicure with nail art.—Lexy Lebsack
