Best Beauty: Where to get you beauty groove in Los Angeles

My Jewel Box - Ivanka Trump

Los Angeles: Brows

Anastasia Beverly Hills-Brentwood
11933 Wilshire Boulevard
Price: $45—$80
Although her red-carpet clientele (Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon) is gorgeous to begin with, Anastasia Soare has been known to raise arches without over-plucking and to slightly lengthen the tail to create the most face-flattering shapes. Former wait-listers take note: Her new 3,100-square-foot studio is double the size of the original.

Los Angeles: Facials

Terri Lawton
931 ½ N. La Cienega Boulevard
Price: $250 and up
Located in a cozy studio behind an ivy–covered exterior, Lawton’s spa is known for its holistic approach to gorgeous skin. She analyzes her clients’ complexions, product regimens, and their diets, then applies custom–mixed serums and uses light–therapy lasers and Chinese acupressure points to impart a radiant smoothness. Kate Bosworth, Demi Moore, and Rachel Weis are all devotees.

Los Angeles: Hair Color

Byron & Tracey Salon
9294 Civic Center Drive
Price: $125
At the urging of their pal, stylist Rachel Zoe, Hollywood hair vets Byron Williams and Tracey Cunningham opened this sleek space five years ago. Colorist Cunningham specializes in graduated highlights that turn brighter toward the tips. Clients Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Zoe, natch, think it’s bananas!

Los Angeles: Hair Treatment

Essensuals London
8126 Melrose Avenue
Price: $25—$250
The luxe deep-conditioning treatments—done alfresco on the salon’s rooftop patio—are so relaxing, you won’t bat an eyelash when the likes of Emily Blunt, Kate Bosworth, and Anne Hathaway saunter past. The 2,500-square-foot space is led by celebrity stylist Laini Reeves.

Los Angeles: Haircut

Andy Lecompte salon 
616 N. Almont Drive 
Price: $175 —$250
Stylist Ryan Crupi has the good looks and laid-back attitude of a California surfer, so it’s no surprise that he hits the waves most days at dawn, then rinses off before heading to the Andy Lecompte Salon. There he delivers sexy, layered styles with windblown waves and a natural piecey texture.
Beauty Blackbook Manicure

Los Angeles: Nails

8408-B Beverly Boulevard
Price: $20 and up
L.A. has no shortage of nail spas, but the locals particularly love this eco–friendly spot, which uses nontoxic polishes. Clients can spike their scrub with custom scents and relax with a complimentary round of sweet sparkling wine.
Beauty Blackbook Tan

Los Angeles: Tanning

Portofino Beverly Hills
9431 S. Santa Monica Boulevard
(Beverly Hills)
Price: $65 and up
Rare is the day when a spray tan smells like vanilla-berry (let's face it, most are rather unpleasant), but that's entirely possible at Portofino. Clients can choose from 30 fragrances, while aestheticians select from 255 possible color combinations to create a custom formula. The result: a sun-kissed hue that smells as good as it looks.

Beauty Blackbook wax

Los Angeles: Waxing

The Wax Shop
400 S. Beverly Drive, Suite 102
Beverly Hills
Price: $10—$50
Owner Tanya Lisitsa's under-the-radar studio has only one table, so clients are guaranteed individual attention. After applying a layer of warm honey and strawberry wax, she holds skin taut to minimize discomfort. She waxes so thoroughly that there isn't a stray left, nor a need for tweezing.
