All About Cosmetic is totally focused on beauty enhancements that fend off aging, acne, and other annoyances. So committed to beauty is the boutique that its staffers man a 24-hour hotline to answer make-up, weight-loss, or general beauty questions at any time of day or night. They also like to put their money where their mouth is with a slew of services. In addition to laser treatments that remove hair and tighten the skin, they also support weight loss efforts with Lollolight hunger-suppressant lollipops. When used along with a proper diet and exercises, these treats curb appetites and come in a variety delicious flavors such as strawberry, butterscotch, and watermelon.
Though The M Salon sits on bustling Rodeo Drive, its interior wraps visitors in zen-like calm. Cool, marble halls lead to the waiting room, decorated, like the rest of the space, in sparse black-and-white hues accentuated with bright orchids. A miniature kitchen lets stylists brew coffee and espresso, slice fruits, and pour wines and champagne as complimentary refreshments for their clients, and modern cabinets tuck away premium products by Moroccanoil, OSMO, Brazilian Blowout, AVEDA and CND.
The carefully designed space by Pooya Goudarzi from VerteX design studio was long the dream of The M Salon's owner, Marjan. She began with a cosmetology license that followed with numerous certifications from Brazilian Blowout to CND shellac. She is also a certified cosmetology teacher by Santa Monica College . In addition to her newly learned specialties, Marjan has a passion for the ancient art of eyebrow threading, which uses carefully twisted cotton threads to gently remove unwanted facial hair.
For many, a bee farm might stir feelings of anxiety, and perhaps even childlike fear, but not for Germana, founder and owner of Brazilian Honey Waxing. Growing up on a ranch in Brazil, she spent her childhood playing and experimenting with the honey relinquished from her father's bee farm, eventually spinning the sugary substance into a 100% natural wax. Though Germana has since left her Brazilian home for the humming streets of Santa Monica, she still transforms that same honey from her father's farm into batches of organic and hypoallergenic wax for her boutique. Inside her shop, she and her staff of trained aestheticians do away with unwanted hair on every surface, from bikini lines and legs to noses and chestplates made of discarded mannequin parts. Each and every application of Germana's specialty wax sticks directly to the hair follicle, leaving the skin completely free from irritation.
Billion Dollar Brows With a clientele of stars including Adam Carolla, Ryan Seacrest, and Lauren Conrad, the brow artists at Billion Dollar Brows specialize in red carpet-worthy looks. Their focus on brow care has taken them from a small operation inside an LA apartment to a recognized salon earning mentions from magazines and television shows, such as Vanity Fair and “E! News." Highly-trained aestheticians man each of the chic salon's reclining stations, where they trim, wax, and tweeze arches perfect enough to beautify even the most puzzled of expressions. And to help clients maintain polished looks, Billion Dollar Brows also vends a range of products including pencils, tweezers, and their signature Brow Booster conditioning treatment.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
