CLIPPER SHIP: For Allure Magazine, there’s only one salon in all of Miami that’s “A Cut Above.” We’re talking about Salon Vaso, the Alton Road hair haven touted as the must-cut destination in the mag’s August issue. To celebrate the top honor, Salon Vaso is inviting guests to set sail on the high seas Wednesday, August 19 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Just stop into the salon today only and pick up your invitation for the exclusive event. While you’re in the shop, be sure to book a cut during the month of August. First-time customers score a free hair treatment worth $30 when they mention the “A Cut Above” special. When Allure writes you up, we all win. 1500 Alton Road, 2nd Floor, Miami Beach; 305.674.7470      

OWN IT: It seems like everyone has a catchphrase. For Tim Gunn, it’s “make it work.” For MIYO, it’s “make it your own.” And now that the contemporary furniture store is hosting its annual sample sale, you can actually afford to make it your own. With 30 to 70 percent off original prices, you can stock up on leather sofas, seats and décor that would leave that "Project Runway" fashionably nitpicking wordsmith speechless. 47 N.E. 36th St., Miami; 305.576.4170 
ONCE, TWICE, THREE TIMES A SUNSCREEN: We can’t say it enough: Wear sunscreen. Living in Miami, you should know to never step outside unless you’re epidermis is under SPF cover. If you still think you’re too busy to slap on a little sunscreen, try Oclipse Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30 from ZO Skin Health. The product not only shields you from the sun, it’s also a primer for your makeup and it packs a hint of tint so you can skip the foundation. Now what’s your excuse? $65, Nordstrom at the Village of Merrick Park; 4310 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables; 786.999.1313
