Safar 237 Newbury St, Boston, MA02116 With 30 stylists on staff and a space occupying the basement floor of three buildings, Safar is one of the biggest and…More busiest salons on Newbury Street. You can detect the excitement within just by walking by the place. Owner and stylist Serge Safar, who started the business 30 years ago, leads his team with a simple commitment to making every single client feel good about him or herself. These cutting-edge professionals not only stay busy at the salon but also do high-profile commercial and print work. They're often responsible for the coiffures seen at many of the in-town fashion shows. In addition to hair stylists, Safar also has technicians who do nails, skin care and makeup.
Second Time Around 322 Newbury St, Boston, MA02115 Second Time Around sells relatively upscale vintage clothing, shoes and accessories for women and men and offers all the…More advantages of buying used clothes—you can pay a lot less, prevent needless waste and conserve resources. It has locations across the east coast, which often—as is the case at 322 Newbury Street—occupy the trendiest shopping hot spots. This location—near Newbury Comics and the Boston Architectural College—is one of three Newbury Street locations. It's the newest, and is larger than the other two. Its wares are displayed in a long, garden-level studio with walls of exposed brick. Unlike many other such stores (Goodwill, Boomerangs), the clothing at Second Time Around is acquired not through the consigners' charitable instincts but through fiscal incentives. Anyone can create an account online and consign clothes through the mail. Forty percent of the profits are paid (in quarterly installments) whenever your former things are sold, but note that these items sell at Second Time Around for as low as 30 to 50 percent of their retail value. The shop prefers to sell high-end, "better name brand" clothing, in "like-new condition" and will refuse anything older than two years. In this way, customers can buy near retail-quality apparel in the current style for a fraction of the usual price.
