They leverage their combined expertise to highlight clients' natural beauty. Blink Studio is home to a number highly specialized stylists including graduates of the Academy of Beauty in Culver City, certified estheticians and lash-extension specialists, and custom airbrush-tanning artists.

An off-shoot of BE Beverly Hills—a company dedicated to eco-friendly beauty products—Blowlux shapes clients' hairstyles, nails, and faces under BE's guiding principle: making clients feel beautiful with all-natural, luxurious cosmetic services. Garnering the approval of such high-profile outlets as O magazine and Glamour, BE Beverly Hills and Blowlux focus on professional-level blowouts that achieve a variety of looks, from rolling waves to straight, smooth locks. Within the salon's purple-accented walls and dazzling white interior, aestheticians also indulge hands and feet with mani-pedis and highlight faces with makeup, creating visages more artfully composed than the Mona Lisa with the distracting dragon tattoo over her left eye.
According to their philosophy, the team at Innovative Beauty Lounge "believes that taking care of yourself is a necessity, not a luxury." This high standard is reflected in what the lounge calls its extensive, "one-stop-shop-style" treatment list, which includes services such as infrared sauna sessions, professional makeup artistry, facials, and waxing.
This beauty- and relaxation-centric worldview is also present in the spa's origin story: Though Innovative features salon, med-spa, and day-spa services, it was founded not by aestheticians but by massage therapists. Therapists at Innovative Beauty Lounge have previously kneaded the muscles of professional athletes and at five-star resorts across the globe.
