Owner and multicertified aesthetician Jennifer Woehle helms Beau Ideal House of Beauty's cadre of licensed pulchritude bolsterers, performing spa services that range from dramatic eyelash extensions to facials and body scrubs. A lineup of facials refurbishes weary façades, tailoring treatments to skin types in order to fight such visage blemishers as bacteria, dryness, and meringue-pie projectiles. Additionally, custom eyelash extensions, applied by a team of specially certified professionals, are affixed to eye awnings with medically approved adhesive in a variety of lengths, curls, and thickness. Low-temperature waxing treatments use natural resins to oust unwanted hair and errant tumbleweeds from corporeal plains, whereas myriad massage, scrub, and body-peel options leave musculatures relaxed and rejuvenated.
When most people check their nails, they don't expect to find an art gallery. Nail Service's clientele, however, is used to leaving with dazzling designs at its fingertips. Mondrian color patterns, white lilies floating like jellyfish through inky blackness, blood-red witchy-woman talons, rhinestone-encrusted pinkscapes to match any Barbie's Dream House?Nail Service's variety of Japanese 3D gels and custom-painted abstractions has made it a "Little Tokyo cult favorite for LA?s nail art-obsessed set," according to Los Angeles Confidential.
The nail techs also excel at the fundamentals, enhancing routine mani-pedis with organic lotions and scrubs infused with herbs, citrus, and essential oils. Similarly, the salon's stylists accentuate gazes with synthetic or mink eyelash extensions that can withstand showers, swimming pools, and up to three stooges' worth of seltzer bottles.
From within Hair Shop Etcetra, stylist Aleksay Calvin pays attention to the smallest of details—turning a simple haircut into a pampering experience. He treats scalps to a relaxing massage during shampoo sessions, and doesn’t hesitate to throw in a complimentary flat-iron style when it’ll complete a look. Aleksay extends this care to his other services, such as catering to clients’ intolerance of chemicals with an array of Keratin formulas.
The stylists at Barbie Lashes amplify eyes with mink and silk extensions that they adhere, one by one, to natural eyelashes. They also apply a special mascara coating that enhances results for up to two months. The moisture-resistant extensions aren't damaged by activities such as swimming or showering. As an added convenience, the salon offers patrons parking validation and complimentary coffee or soda.
After more than 17 years of sculpting manes across the United States, Erica Plath set her sights on beautifying another part of the body. From her new studio, Lash Lounge LA, Erica now plumps up lash lines with customized silk and faux mink extensions. She applies each high-quality hair individually, using a formaldehyde-free glue and hands that are steadier than high-school sweethearts in a full-body cast. She continues her work with existing extensions during refills visits, which replenish lash coverage depleted by the extensions? natural shedding cycle. In addition to her extension services, Erica can also add an inviting sheen to natural lashes with tinting treatments powered by a vegan tinting solution.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
We like to make connections with customers. During eyelash extension applications, most customers are sleeping, but we enjoy having a conversation with our client if they like to talk.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
Men and women alike have often reported looking and feeling younger after having eyelash extensions applied. We believe that eyelash extensions have a dramatic effect on improving the overall look for men as the lashes are completely natural looking and add just enough volume. For this reason, we like to do equally marketing for male customers as we do for female.
