As we gear up for fall and winter beauty which leads straight into awards season –the Emmy’s are already upon us this week, here are some of the top places where you can get a jump start on your red-carpet ready looks from locks to lashes.
The Private Room
This stunning under-the-radar-spot is tucked away in Beverly Hills but Tina Dizon has been turning out red carpet ready photo shoots, celebrity-worthy hair color and head-turning extensions for over 7 years at this location.
Since discovering The Private Room, we have learned a lot about caring for our locks and Dizon approaches her craft like a scientist rather than a stylist. For example: While you might want to get more mileage out of your frazzled extensions, she recommends not waiting so long in between adjustments or buying a new set as when the strands start to become damaged, “Your real hair starts to mimic that frayed look to an extent.” Dizon also has tips about being mindful of the seemly harmless weight we are putting on our hair as there could be consequences, “You need to be careful with breakage.” So that weekend ‘pony’ that you love might have to go if you wear extensions. “It can damage and break the hair shaft even with a cloth scrunchie, and never tie your hair back when it’s wet as it expands and could also cause even more breakage.”
Unlike many other salons, when you go in for a hair extension adjustment with the Locks Lab extensions service, your hair is treated before its reapplied – depending on what the extensions need – moisture and shine are added while other services are performed as part of the menu from the Hair Elixirs which include refresh, repair, rebuild, or rebond.
Also, try to be mindful of how much hair you are shedding in between treatments. According to Dizon, “About 50-60 strands a day is normal,” but anything after that might be a more serious issue that you need to look into. Either way, you will be in excellent hands with Dizon and her team at this chic boutique salon. https://www.theprivateroombh.com
One of our favorite make-over spots on Sunset Boulevard, is expanding. They now offer services to the Westside via their San Vicente outpost in Brentwood. A few new things to note: they are offering full eye lash extensions for just $99 and you can have touch ups for $1 per lash (minimum of 50 lashes), so you really can’t afford not to look glamorous for every occasion. They also offer a peel bar glycolic facial by Dr. Schultz that takes up to 2 minutes and will leave your face feeling like a new-born for only $50. It’s so quick and easy, you can do this during a lunch break or add on to your errands list. Of course, follow that up with a full make-up make-over if you have a big night planned. They carry all the best beauty brands from Becca to Stila and know all the new tricks for creating the perfect face for any outing. https://www.blushington.com
