Violet Skin Boutique has been the go-to spot for Boston complexions since 2004, but its story actually starts about 30 years prior. In 1975, Violet Mkhitaryan first began concocting skin products in her native Armenia. She cracked open old books to mine eastern European recipes for inspiration, and when she wasn't whisking oils and herbs into face-rejuvenating salves, she was running spas. Over the following decades, Violet helmed spas in Armenia and Moscow, all while earning degrees in aesthetics and biochemistry, and finally staked her claim in Boston.
Violet's products have appeared not only on customers' faces but in numerous press outlets, including the pages of Martha Stewart's Whole Living and the Improper Bostonian, which called her line the city's best local beauty products. She makes her lauded serums surrounded by glass jugs, dried flower petals, and everything nice in a lab that the Boston Globe described as resembling a pastry chef's kitchen. At her spa's two locations, she beautifies her clients with facials and body treatments celebrated by Every Day with Rachel Ray.

Q&A with Julie, Marketing Director
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Partially dry your hair with a blow dryer, or air dry, before brushing. Brushing wet hair can damage your strands and cause split ends. Flat-paddle brushes are the best if you must brush your wet hair.
Part of being a good stylist is mastering the art of conversation. What are some pro tips for talking to strangers?
[We] bring up topics everyone can relate to. [We] ask about family, kids, work, what they do for fun or what plans they have for their days off.
