Professional makeup artist Patricia Guerrera has accrued 15 years of beauty experience in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Boston, where she mastered an aesthetic art that accentuates clients’ natural comeliness for special occasions. The Montecito Messenger sings Tru Beauty’s praises, crowing that the organic facial products work “instantly” and that clients feel “spoiled.” Guerrera tackles finer details with lash and brow-tint services or eyelash applications, all of which help eyes garner more attention than Sophia Loren in a clown costume. Facials cleanse the countenance with organic and high-end products, and facial or Brazilian waxes lift away unwanted fuzz. Guerrera wields upscale makeup products such as M.A.C and Benefit Cosmetics when she prepares faces for weddings, special occasions, or long stints of hiding from the mob. The thorough makeovers begin with primer and foundation, and then intensify personal pulchritude with mascara, cheek color, lipstick, and eye shadow.

Patty Sue loves holding hands. At Shear West Salon, she holds them while tending to cuticles and shaping nails during one of her manicures. She also holds onto feet as she softens calluses and coats nails with colorful polish. She works alongside a staff who cut away split ends, sweep strands into stunning updos, and color hair with Goldwell products.

For the past seven years, The B Boutique's owner, Jamie, has been traveling to Brazil in search of bikinis. Lately, she's been kicking through the sands and surf of Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana and Ipanema beaches or hanging around in São Paulo's Santos district. In these hot spots of South American beach fashion, she scopes out the latest trends, taking the best with her to hang from knotted driftwood racks at her boutique in Isla Vista. These colorful, skimpy bikinis bridge the gap between The B Boutique's retail and spa dimensions—in order to strut the bikinis with confidence, one must have a smooth, stubble-free body. In private rooms, Jamie removes hair with a "no-scream cream" that minimizes discomfort for very sensitive skin that always cries at the end of Bambi. To give clients a midsummer glow, she mists them with Bronze Biologic's tanning solution—an organic formula derived from beet and sugar-cane extract and aloe vera. To round out her spa menu, Jamie spruces up fingers and toes with luxurious mani-pedis, submerging feet in aromatic basins and massaging hands before lacquering nails with professional polishes.
