Your Guide To Getting Gorgeous
"Arcona is my gold standard for facials—they use all-natural products and have an incredibly knowledgeable staff."
Nicky Deam, Fashion Director
"Kate Somerville is such a magical destination. They have an extensive menu of amazing beauty treatments—one of my favorite services is getting my eyebrows shaped and tinted—it's the best summer pick-me-up."
Megan Gustashaw, Editorial Director
"Gina Veltri at Meche Salon is absolutely phenomenal at makeup. She is my go-to for any special occasion or big event. She is a true artist who always makes me feel beautiful and glamorous—plus, she's really fun to talk to!"

Benjamin with Negin Zand
"I get my hair cut at Salon Benjamin in West Hollywood—it's the best! I've gotten a few dramatic cuts there with Dylan C. I always leave my appointment happy. The space is really cool too, which is a bonus."

Piele Skin Boutique
"Piele Skin Boutique is my favorite place to get a mani and pedi because unlike most other places I've gone to, this location only takes one client at a time. It's so quiet and relaxing and best of all, it doesn't reek of nail polish. Piele is more like a spa than a busy nail salon which makes it enjoyable and less of a chore."

Ramirez Tran Salon
"I went to Johnny Ramirez at the Ramirez Tran salon when I went from brunette to blonde. His technique is insane—paper thin highlights all throughout the hair. Months after my appointment the grow out still looks totally natural."
Kendall Cohan, Licensing & Partnership Associate
"I’m lazy when it comes to mascara—as in, I’ll take any chance I can get to avoid wearing it on a daily basis. To give my lashes a semi-permanent boost, I’ll occasionally pop into Blushington’s Sunset Plaza location for an eyelash tint, which lasts several weeks and adds a nice black lacquered finish to my fringe.”
Kristi Mikesky, Fashion & Beauty Editor
Mars The Salon
"Mars is heaven—it's the most zen place to get your nails done. I'm obsessed with their Ashitsubo reflexology foot massage. It's such a relaxing experience, you leave floating."
