Piercing eyes gaze at each client as they walk into Ruby's Beauty Studio. The stares do not belong to the friendly staff at the intimate studio but rather to pictures of women on its walls, each one’s hair and makeup elegantly done. This is just one way owner and beautician Ruby Walia showcases the studio’s extensive menu of aesthetic treatments, which range from threading and waxing to makeup applications. Ruby and her staff apply intricate henna designs to bodies and brighten and exfoliate faces with ginseng powder, 24-karat gold, and oxygen cream during 10 types of customized facials.
For the better part of the decade, Ruby has built her namesake studio from the ground up. Once a lawyer, Ruby decided to make a career change when she felt the need for a more creative outlet.
