Los Angeles: Beauty

Although my husband may refer to me as a ‘fashionista’ (in his sarcastic tone, of course), I never seem to grasp the ins-and-outs of the beauty industry.  Whether it is my hair, makeup or nails…..I tend to always look ‘oh natural’ (…and trust me, that isn’t the look I’m often going for).  Although I do my own hair and makeup daily (….if only I had my own glam squad with me at all time)….when I am visiting a new city, have a special event to go to or I’m shooting content for the blog, I make sure to make an appointment with the professionals.

Recently, I had a few scheduled events and photoshoots (….coming soon to a blog near you) in the Los Angeles area.  I felt this was a perfect time to check out all the swoon-worthy beauty stops visited regularly by some of my favorite fashion influencers and get all glammed up myself.

If you are visiting the Los Angeles area and find yourself in need of a manicure, blowout or a makeup application, then this is the list for you! Stay Gorgeous!


8591 Sunset Blvd
West Hollywood, CA

Blushington is make-up heaven if there ever was one.  This pink palace is stocked with some of the most lusted makeup brands, including Stila and Becca.  Blushington have an array of locations across the United States, including options in California, Texas and New York.  If you are on the go and need a service even more convenient…. than their new Blush On The Go service is the one for you!


901 Too Salon
901 Westbourne Dr.
West Hollywood, CA

This West Hollywood beauty lounge is visited regularly by some of the most photographed celebrities of our time…..Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens to name a few. Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri, founders of Nine Zero One salon, recently opened a beauty lounge for all of the busy women on the go.  Services include blowouts, braids and make-up applications that will leave you feeling gorgeous for any important meeting, date or event.

452 N Canon Dr.
Beverly Hills, CA

When visiting US cities, I tend to always make an appointment at this buttercup heaven.  Drybar is an incredibly reliable service, in my opinion, state to state and from location to location.  Once greeted at the entry, you are offered a coffee, tea or mimosa of your choice!  The next step is taking a look through their picture perfect menu of blowout options….all named after delicious cocktails….what’s not to love! I always go for The Manhattan if looking for a classic look or The Mai Tai when going more for a perfected beach wave.  If visiting a Drybar location isn’t an option, you can pick up all of their products and hairstyling tools at a Sephora near you!


Olive and June 
430 N Canon Dr.
Beverly Hills, CA

I recently devoted an entire post to Olive and June as it is too special of a place to not showcase alone. This well known nail salon is visited regularly by Victoria Beckham and Kendall Jenner and is Instagramed on the daily by some of the most well known influencers. Olive & June have since opened two other locations, including one in Santa Monica and another in Pasadena and likely will expand further. If you are visiting the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend visiting one of the three (…or all) locations. Your service will not disappoint!
