Hairstylist Benjamin Mohapi, founder of the renowned Benjamin with Negin Zand Salon on Melrose Avenue, has expanded his beauty empire with the adjoining Selects Apothecary—a new one-stop shop for all of your primping and preening needs. Mohapi opened the boutique with Genavieve Lynch, a former dancer and designer who developed a love of all things beauty during her extensive worldly travels. The result is an expertly curated, stylish selection of products from around the world, from African Botanics to Japan’s uber-popular Yu-Be skin care. Look for a few homegrown brands in the mix, too, including cult favorite RGB nail care, and California brands such as Earth Tu Face and Juniper Ridge. Don’t miss sumptuous hair-care products from the likes of Italian brand Davines, Sweden’s Sachajuan and French line René Furterer. That’s what we call pretty and impressive.
