Lauded on the pages of Fit magazine, as well as on computer screens on LA.com and TVs on E! News, Vida Emanuel European Day Spa has garnered well-deserved attention for 25 years. The spa?s owner opened her namesake beauty haven to provide locals of Beverly Hills and beyond with expertly executed skin and body services. Amid an elegant space embellished with gold accents, Emanuel?s highly trained crew of Certified Aesthetic Consultants, massage therapists, and laser specialists gets to work perfecting exteriors with more than 15 skin treatments, many of which feature Emanuel?s personal skincare line. On-trend beauty treatments include Yon-Ka facials and threading services, all-natural spray tans, massages, and laser hair-removal treatments. Clients who opt for more advanced therapies can pursue dermal-filler injections to plump fine lines, or try ultrasonic lipolysis, a painless procedure that helps pinch inches by breaking down fatty cells shaped like Twinkies.
The namesake of hope cosmetics is Hope LeMarque, a veteran makeup artist and eyelash extension technician. She established her venture in 2005, opening its doors to a wide range of clients. Whether they're getting ready to go out for the day or seeking a look worthy of the red carpet, each customer receives a one-on-one consultation before their treatment.
Upon arriving at Hope's penthouse beauty studio, clients can ogle at a line of colorful eye shadow palettes, lip-glosses, and mascara before partaking in a full makeup lesson or a relaxing spa service. To create smooth face canvases, Hope and her dedicated team of aestheticians plump fine lines and thicken eyelashes with oxygen-infused treatments as well as exfoliate epidermises with gentle Vitamin C and lactic peels. Hope and company also doll-up clients with Dream Catcher hair extensions and handcrafted mink eyelash extensions that create instant drama without having to hire reality stars to cry in the corner during your wedding.
Love Beauty Art relocated to Los Angeles in 2007 and the results speak for themselves. Their work has since been featured in Essence and Angeleno magazines. In addition, they have rouged the cheeks of such celebrity faces as Emma Roberts and Ke$ha, and have been an independent consultant for LA Fashion Week, the Emmy Awards, and even the Oscars. Drawing from this experience, Love Beauty Art is a place where all can seek expertise for makeup and voluminous lash extensions. Clients can opt for individual silk or mink eyelashes that are attached to individual lash strands using a medical grade adhesive. Lashes require maintenance about every 3-5 weeks and can be catered to individual customizations such as varying length, thickness, and curl.
Dr. John Kahen studied at UCLA and Ross University School of Medicine, where he learned the surgical and medical techniques he now uses to treat male pattern baldness. To suit individual needs, the team employs varied methodologies, such as follicular unit extraction, which transplants one unique snowflake of hair at a time, or hair-transplant surgery, which subtly relocates large swaths of hair. Medical hair-loss therapy impedes the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the hormone that causes male pattern baldness. Kahen and company treat both men and women, and their services can apply either to the scalp or to other body areas.
The Udi Salon staff pools its collective expertise to groom clients with a full range of hair services. The stylists hone their skills and keep up on trends by regularly attending hair shows, seminars, and continuing-education courses, instead of doing weekly internet searches for "cute haircuts."
Owner Udi's expertise lies in coloring and highlights using Schwarzkopf Igora and Goldwell products, and other staff members specialize in lushing up tresses with extensions or coaxing them straight with Brazilian blowouts. Products from Enjoy enhance each hair treatment, which is delivered in a sleek white room with black hair stations and leather chairs.
Licensed aesthetician Janette Cassandra is passionate about helping her clients look great. For more than 20 years, she's been seeing people at her Beverly Hills studio, where her facials, waxing, and peels help clients walk out feeling beautiful. Her dedication to client comfort and good results even stretches to the waxing product she uses: she developed her beeswax-free formula herself with a company in Italy to meet her specifications. That level of care extends to all her clients, whether they're in need of exfoliating peels or eyelash and eyebrow tinting.
