· Ouidad: If you have curly hair and need a hairstylist trained to work with it, Ouidad is the place for you. Their team understands curly hair and knows how to make it look beautiful. Their accompanying line of products will help you keep the look maintained.
· Bliss: If you want luxury without paying luxury prices, hit the Bliss spa located on the second floor of the W Hotel in Westwood, right by UCLA. Make an appointment for a facial (we love their new “firm, baby, firm” facial, which incorporates light therapy and muscle stimulation), but show up early enough to lounge in the sauna and enjoy the waiting room, which has tea, snacks, and magazines.
· Style Bar: For busy L.A. movers and shakers, Style Bar is a must. At this salon, you can get everything from a blowout to a mani-pedi in an hour, for $100 or less. Considering the cost of multiple treatments at multiple salons (not to mention the price of gas), this is perfect if you need to get everything done in a day.
· Benefit: Benefit is a one-stop beauty shop where you can get lash tints, eyebrow waxes, makeup lessons, and more. They also carry the brand’s signature line of adorably packaged products, from mascara to cheek tint, and will give you tips on how to best use them.
