Face to Face Los Angeles sprang from the fertile, well-moisturized mind of Robert van den Hurk, who wanted to make the latest advances in beauty technology available in a fashionable day spa. Aestheticians perform anti-aging skincare services with a proprietary line of products mentioned on Examiner.com. Body wraps help to funnel infrared heat deep down to help to break up cellulite deposits, and clinical facials clear out pores with the power of galvanic currents and shouting "fire!" near patches of congested skin.
Scraggly manes make something of themselves with the help of Lucy's Hair Salon's crack team of locks smiths. Within a clean, modern cocoon formed of bright buttercream walls and shiny wood fixtures, ladies can entrust their tresses to the salon's shrewd stylists, who reward believing brain-holders with striking new scalp bouquets. Gentlemen can mull a mullet or save the endangered faux hawk during their deshagging sessions. A subsequent Moroccanoil treatment will strengthen and condition hair so it can resist temptation to midnight snack on earlobes. Groupon customers can also receive 10% off any additional salon services if performed on the same day.
GoodSkin's lead aesthetician, Carol Robinson, prides herself on cultivating a tranquil atmosphere for her clients and their normally skittish skin. Relaxed skin, after all, is easier to resurface and more easily persuaded to remember what it meant to be young. Guided by the skillful, charismatic hands of GoodSkin's trained Zambonists, your skin will be gently resurfaced as an LED light simultaneously soothes inflammation and promotes firming collagen growth. This newly unearthed diamond-clear skin will then be pampered with a cherry-bark shea-butter massage and a vitamin-enriched oxygen mist. The concluding cranberry infusion completes the revitalizing Thanksgiving feast for faces.
The salon’s name is pronounced shin-eh, a Gaelic phrase meaning “that’s it.” Potential interpretations and applications of this phrase are as varied as the services offered within Sin É’s hallowed halls. Let the trained and talented hands of a stylist dissect and rearrange tangled follicles, determining where to snip, where to snap, and where to apply streams of vibrant color. Women’s haircuts cost $70, and similar services for the closer-cropped gentleman are $50. A blow dry and style runs between $45 and $55, depending on length, thickness, and whether your hair is the source of your power. Revivify dull, ennui-riddled locks with a single-color process ($70) or partial highlights ($110). Or, treat rough patches to a mane-soothing treatment with products from Redken or Pureology ($25).
Larisa Krylova’s vast knowledge of beauty standards and techniques is due to her industry experience in both the United States and Russia, although she’s been settled in the former for more than 15 years now.

Following in her mother’s footsteps, Julia of Julia’s Beautique & Skin Care began her now nearly 30-year career at a dermatologist’s office in her native Russia. There, she learned the ins and outs of dealing with acne and other skin problems. She then moved to Israel to add to her arsenal of skills by training in European skincare. Today, Julia lives and works in LA, where she practices her own approach to skincare that combines her experience with problem skin and her mastery of European skincare techniques. She treats men, women, and teens with facials that battle acne and aging, and she also rejuvenates skin using Holy Land products. Beyond her 15 specialty facials, Julia also caters to clients' unwanted hair with body waxing and threading.
