To earn the title “makeup guru,” one needs to log multiple hours practicing the art of aesthetics. Alice Atakhanian has been doing that since 1997. After training under TV and film makeup artists David Allen Dittmer and Dina Ousley, Alice went on to gain experience working on production sets and with local and international celebrities including the singer Bahar. Currently, the multitasking makeup artist oversees an online wedding services directory, spearheads bridal shows, and hosts the Persian satellite TV show “Top Tack”. She can also be seen at Beyond Beauty Parlor, the makeup and salon studio that she founded with her AML beauty academy.
At the Glendale beauty shop, wrapped in modern art decor and light colors, Alice and her team tend to clients with the latest in hair and makeup treatments. Brides can enjoy private accommodations as they're gussied up with intricate updos, bejeweled tiaras, and airbrush makeup that creates flawless skin and discreetly covers vow tattoos. Beyond Beauty's team also offers classic spa services in the form of antiaging facials and aromatherapy massages to relax the mind and body.
