Kim Vō Launches Vō Blow; a Concept Salon focused on Quick and Luxurious Treatments at the Montage Beverly Hills

July 10, 2017

Ten minute hair color? YES, PLEASE!!!

As summer kicks into high gear, so do the outdoor activities — beach gatherings, backyard BBQs, pool parties, weekends away. But with all that fun in the sun, our hair pays a major price. Summer conspires against hair color like no other season. The sun, salt water, chlorine and over-washing fade color and dull shine.  With the weather so perfect, who wants to spend the whole day in the salon getting those pesky roots touched up when we could be bouncing around town posting Instagram stories of “rosé all day”?”

Master colorist Kim Vo and his new Vō Blow salon has changed all that. You can now get hair color AND a blow out in the same amount of time it takes you to filter your photo. This express service is literally 10-minute hair color and a 30-minute blow out — game changer!! Oh yeah, and everything is under $50.

Located street-level at the famed Montage Beverly Hills, Vō Blow is the complete package from root to end. Perfect for a lunch break refresh or when you’re tight on time and need a root touch-up before a night out, Vō Blow’s core a la carte services include blowdrys, 10-minute color, glaze treatments, moisture masks, and intensive conditioning treatments —and did I mention everything is under $50?

“My clients have always asked me for an express service to take them in between their salon visits, or to deliver quick color in a pinch,” says Vō, whose famous clients include Britney Spears, Jenny McCarthy, Goldie Hawn and Pamela Anderson. “Our ten-minute color is perfect for both men and women on the go and, as we like to say, Vo Blow Color Go!”

Run, don’t walk, to Vō Blow.

Organic Pharmacy – Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills

June 24, 2017

The ORGANIC PHARMACY has always been a huge fave of mine. Their products are simply top notch.

Stepping into this clean, minimal space brings me great joy. However, it’s smelling and feeling every single on of their products that sends me into bliss.

To put it simply – everything is a pure as it gets. And all I can say is you have to experience it all for yourself.

I recently popped over for their classic Rose Quartz Lymphatic Facial. 

I hadn’t had a treatment there in years and could not wait for a re-fresher. I left glowing and radiant and smelling like the cleanest and purest essential oils. I was reeling!

This is the Rose Quartz Facial: (sounds great, huh?)

Our Ultimate Signature Experience A luxurious treatment to re-energise and renew your skin. Awa

Your treatment begins with Lavender-infused deep breathing exercises, followed by deep cleansing, exfoliation, steaming and extraction. Three luxurious masks of Rosehip, Seaweed, Honey & Jasmine and Collagen are applied, with intensive hands, arms, feet, face, décolleté and scalp massage* (using our nourishing Hair Serum).

This indulgent treatment leaves you in a completely renewed state, ready to face the world.

Each treatment is as individual as you are.

Treatments and facials  are all customizable

SAVVY TRAVELERS HELP YOU STAY FRESH WHILE YOU JET SET

May 15, 2017

 

Travel bug hits around now! And the difference between surviving and thriving on vacation has a lot to do with ensuring you have all the right tools…..yep, we’ve all been in those sticky situations!

 

I was recently introduced to Savvy Travelers http://www.savvytravelers.com/ who offers a no-rinse line of products that help to keep travelers healthy and lend a convenient collection of problem solvers for beauty and wellness needs.

They are all TSA friendly, so they can easily go on airplanes. Savvy Travelers designer beauty wipes are curated for the “on-the-go” sophisticated savvy travelista! No water? No problem!

You can go poolside with your designer wipes by your side or stash them in your beach bag. They will easily allow you to refresh a sweaty body with No Sweat wipes, get the chlorine or salty sea off with Take Offz refreshing face cleansing wipes, and remove the sand that got on your phone or on your sunglasses with In The Klear lens and screen cleaner wipes.

 

Looking great is easier when you are prepared, even down to your fingernails. Chipped a nail on day three? Lift Offz to the rescue! They are individually wrapped nail polish remover wipes with cuticle oil!

 

Sometimes we need a vacation from our vacation because we packed so much in on our trip. But the worst thing is to have to use all your sick days after your fabulous vacation, so stay healthy this spring break with Klean Upz and Klean Offz super sanitizing wipes by your side. 

Stay fresh and healthy when traveling by keeping individually wrapped wipes on hand. They can be used for sweat, killing germs, freshening breath, or cleaning off things that seem a tad too dirty to touch. From wiping down airplane tray tables to hotel room remote controls, spending seconds to do that and removing germs can save days worth of being ill.

Savvy Travelers’ Getaway Kit (for only $10) offers 12 individually wrapped beauty wipes that will save you on any trip. All Savvy Travelers’ wipes are convenient, individually wrapped, biodegradable, compostable, and cruelty free.

Those who sign up for the Savvy Travelers’ subscription service, called “Wipeaholics,” receive a personal stash of 40 designer beauty wipes each and every month, delivered right to their mailbox for only $15 a month. Wipes users, or “wipeaholics,” never have to worry about running out of wipes and trying to get to the right store to get more. They will be delivered each month, helping people to simply replenish their stock.

I’m psyched to grab my Savvy Travelers wipes and jump on a plane somewhere tropical this soon! Any of you keen to join?

 

Moms have found their Shangri-La in Spa Lé La

May 11, 2017

Moms have found their Shangri-La in Spa Lé La, the new Studio City place for pampering that accommodates busy moms by offering quality onsite childcare during treatments. The concept of catering to mommy-me-time is simple, because hardworking moms often don’t have a free hand nevermind free time for a temporary and relaxing escape.

 

Spa creator Trina Renea found that after she became a mom, merging a welcoming sanctuary for moms and safe playful space for kids was a perfect and necessary match. Spa Lé La (www.SpaLeLa.com) is so in tune with the pressures of parenting, it even offers the pleasure of naptime for sleep-deprived mom (or dad) on a sumptuous bed.

 

The entire vision of the spa focuses on mom’s need to make sure everyone else is cared for before she can slip away to find her inner calm. Spa Lé La maximizes precious time for temporary transportation to tranquility by providing attentive care straight away. Staff serves mom her favorite tea ushering her to the sanctuary and joyfully welcomes children to settle them into the all-natural and clean environment of the play area.  Designers thoroughly researched the kids zone to guarantee the best possible experience for children ages six months to nine years under the careful watch of CPR certified childcare professionals. While it is safe and sterile, the play area is packed with toys, books, activities, color and whimsy that speaks joy to its precious little clients. Single children receive complimentary care, and it’s $6 for a second child.The innovative spa specializes in $70 combinations of two treatments, whether it be a bath and a nap or infrared sauna and massage throne. Every treatment begins with a soothing hot towel, and founder Trina Renea brings with her expertise in the art of beautiful skin perfected at the popular Facial Bungalow in Los Angeles. Treatments can include getting hair styled for a well-deserved night out and competitive pricing is based on the philosophy that luxury doesn’t have to be outrageously expensive.

Following the opening of its maiden spa in Studio City, Spa Lé La will grow to four additional locations in the Los Angeles area. Once moms (dads welcome too) become aware of the gift of an inclusive spa designed specifically for their rejuvenation in Los Angeles, the plan is to launch franchises across America. Moms everywhere will win back their sense of self and be rewarded with rejuvenation and a fresh state of mind to face the real challenges and grind of modern motherhood.

To celebrate my new favorite week of the year, I popped into Le Jolie Medi Spa in West Hollywood for a lunch-break 60 Min Signature Le Jolie Facial. Located in a super-cute bungalow on Doheny Dr., Le Jolie is the perfect hidden retreat tucked right in the middle of the city. After one hour with Farrah — who washed, steamed, massaged, masked, extracted and hydrated my dull, dry skin — I re-emerged glowing and radiant. And with a price tag of just $50, even my smile seemed brighter!

Run — don’t walk — to one of the participating spas at www.spaweek.com.
