For more than 15 years, the staff at Beauty From The Inside Out has made sure the business lives up to its name. From the inside, clients are rejuvenated with the aid of colon-hydrotherapy sessions that flush away toxins and impacted waste in the lower digestive tract, and detox baths for the hands and feet pull impurities from the skin's pores. And on the outside, technicians remove hairs from the skin with full-body waxing and facial threading. Smooth skin is also achieved with PerfectSense Paraffin, treatments, which hydrate hands and feet with a warm wax made with 11 vitamins including vitamin E and B12 nutrients.
Makeup artist Vincent Ford has always found himself drawn to shapes, textures, and colors, from the pale green of a budding spring bloom to the intricate pink argyle of a skyscraper's façade. Ford funnels his aesthetic inspirations into makeup applications customized for weddings and headshots as well as TV and film appearances. A careful application of faux-mink or ethically collected Siberian-mink eyelash extensions dramatically defines peepers; makeup lessons cover a range of topics that includes getting acquainted with the basic tools of the trade, and learning to use airbrush equipment to enhance brides' complexions or pinstripe their foreheads on the big day.
Ford says he has the most fun on the job when applying makeup for print images, which present the challenge of making a 2-D image pop with color and emotion. His beauty blog is a wellspring of everyday tips and celebrity makeup tricks.:m]]

It takes confidence to look George Clooney in the eye, let alone touch his hair. Oliver Ifergan has done both. He readily takes on celebrity clients from Clooney to Tom Ford, at least when he isn't busy serving as a spokesperson for Pantene or creating looks for the pages of Vanity Fair, In Style, and People. Now the owner of his own Beverly Hills Salon, Oliver uses his skills to fashion 'dos to suit starlets as well as those who simply want a trim. Oliver and his team cut and color strands inside a minimalist space designed by Jose Antonio Gonzalez. Metallic walls and curvaceous red chairs with attached sinks lend the salon a futuristic vibe, while a collection of art books, rare magazines, and people saying "hmmmm" liken it to a modern gallery. The atmosphere is an apt one for the creative staff, who snip, highlight, and texturize coifs with products from Ifergan's own line. They even complement their sense of chic with altruism—whether they're administering a simple lip wax, or lengthening locks with human-hair extensions from Hairdreams, 3% of the profits always go to charity.
Launched in February 2012 as a complement to celebrity stylist Oliver Ifergan’s eponymous salon, Twist by Oliver Ifergan’s singular mission is to beautify clients with world-class hair services at an affordable price.

The salon, run by Gregory Ifergan, offers extended hours and is open seven days a week.
