Here's what happened today in Racked cities around the country:
NEW YORK—The owners of Shen, a Brooklyn-based organic beauty boutique (now e-commerce friendly!), talk about their favorite non-toxic products, what it's like to testing everything they sell, and why the new Barney's "apothecary" in Brooklyn isn't really competition.
LOS ANGELES—Take a peek into Hillary Kerr's (super cute) makeup bag to find out what the co-founder and editorial director of Who What Wear's eight favorite products are right now. Spoiler alert: This California girl doesn't waste her time on dull.
CHICAGO—From platinum blonde roots to some serious purple tips (all on one head), Chicago's Epoch salon delivers crazy unique hair with an organic twist. Not in the Chicago area? No worries. You can still get the look yourself with their blog's makeover and how-to videos.
