Where Husbands on a Private Tour Can Get Their Nails Done
In a city of beautiful people we know where to go for shopping so that our private Los Angeles tour guests can dress like the celebrities whose homes we have just visited. One wonderful street full of cutting edge fashions and designs is Melrose Avenue. Most fashion boutiques are there for women, as you would expect. But there are still plenty of places where men can shop (or be taken for shopping). From hippie to hipster, from dealmaker to doctor, there are stores along this mile long stretch of retail businesses for every look. And now, to counter all the store fronts catering to female grooming (hair and nail salons) there is now a nail salon just for men. Hammer & Nails is modeled after the ideal man cave to let guys let their hair down as their finger- and toenails are shaped to perfection. If you are a fan of Shark Tank then you might have seen this unique concept featured back in September, 2014. Since then the Melrose store has flourished as Michael Elliot, its creator, envisioned. Not to be a shill for this manly business, there really is more to having pedicures than looking good in sandals (pretty much yearlong footwear in Los Angeles). There are a good number of health benefits attributed to well cared for feet and nails. Health is important so feel free to make an appointment even during a custom tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills with us and we will deposit the men here and carry on shopping along Melrose with the women.
A Spring Break Shopping Stop on a Private Tour
Our next busy season is almost upon us. Four to six weeks of families with young people visiting Los Angeles when school is on break. The period is extended these days as every school takes a different week or weeks to send its students back out into the world. We will be setting up private Los Angeles tours for Spring Breakers from Europe, Australia and New Zealand and for families from all over the world. One thing kids like to do when exploring Los Angeles is to shop for the latest L.A. fashions. What the celebrities are wearing, that’s what they want. Where are the film stars and professional athletes buying their kicks and gear, that’s where we head for a bit of shopping as part of a custom tour. Melrose Avenue and Sportie L.A. is one of those great unique boutiques that identify Melrose as a shopping heaven where chain stores are not welcome. Where else would a young rocker want to look for stage wear? Shoes and jackets for men, women and kids are available. We can spend a good deal of time exploring and shopping along Melrose (and we have space in the SUV for lots of bags and packages) but there are several other exciting places to visit, too, where the theme can be shopping.
