Get Red Carpet Ready with this Trio of House Beauty Calls from West Hollywood
With awards season already in full swing – starting with the Golden Globes before you can even commit to a New Year’s resolution, it’s hard to find time to look relaxed and red carpet ready – especially when sitting in traffic is part of the equation. Fortunately, there are three services right here in West Hollywood that will come to you whether your heading to a low-key after party or the Oscars.
A masseuse that comes to your door is nothing new in tinseltown, but a local massage therapist that you can summons in just under 60 minutes with the click of an iOS app or your computer, that is something that men and women can get on board with during awards season and throughout the year.
Soothe is a new massage-on-demand service that recently launched in the West Hollywood area offering top-notch deep tissue therapy on a same-day basis. The company has over 350 massage therapists in its network in the LA area that are highly trained, certified, insured and willing to travel to destinations. The services available through midnight each day from Swedish, deep tissue, sports and couples massage, in treatment lengths of 60-90-120 minutes. You can book online at soothe.com or via the Soothe iOS app, providing your information and credit card info and even select the gender of the therapist. The price listed already includes the gratuity and taxes, so there are no additional charges to pay. Think of this as an uber service for your body.
Now that you are relaxed, it’s time to look like you’ve just spent a weekend in Ibiza or Palm Springs. Spray tans are a way of life during the winter awards months, so much so that many of the top tanners have gone mobile.
Katrina Brown is one of Australia’s most sought after tanning experts and is the founder of Sydney’s The Bronzing Boutique, (www.thebronzingboutique.com) a top level salon. Katrina is known for perfecting the red carpet illuminating bronze shimmer and a flawless glow with her custom blends. Lucky for us, Katrina decided to move to Los Angeles to offer her services from her West Hollywood studio. Her fan base quickly rose to include Denise Richards, Nicole Scherzinger, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland, Real Housewives of Miami Joanna Krupa, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Brandi Glanville, Real Housewives of Orange County Gretchen Rossi, and Janice Dickinson just to name a few. It’s not only reality TV stars on her client list these days; Katrina will come to your home or office with her mobile spray tanning for a special occasion or party to blend a custom airbrush tan for your very own skin type in the privacy of your home. There is even a two-day return policy if you don’t like your tan, Katrina will do a touch up on the house.
Another must in the current beauty regime includes fluttering your eyelash extensions. Famed Beverly Hills Lashes recently announced their re-launch under new successor Gloria Ting at the Lulur Day Spa (www.beverlyhillslashes.com) on Robertson and Melrose in West Hollywood. The service is high in precision and each lash is treated with luxe materials such as Siberian Mink lashes that have collected a cult following over the last decade. Previously under the ownership of Juliana Landis, Ting was asked to carry on the legacy of this renowned institution and will bring her expert knowledge right to your home if you are too busy to spend a few hours at the salon. Her lashes look natural and will last under hot lights and even tears as she doesn’t just cover the top layer of lashes but goes under a layer to the bottom lashes with her microscopic ‘mad scientist’ head gear and detailed eye for service. Loyal patrons of her skills include Marie-Chantal, the crown princess of Greece, Florence Welch of Florence & the Machine, Jessica Sutta of The Pussycat Dolls and Kayla Ewell of The Vampire Diaries.
