Right before a big event, I like to get a facial so that my makeup will go on nice and smooth. This location right around the corner from my house also offers massages so the pampering goes on and on. And there is a product line if you want to take the experience home!
Make a note: Parking can be tricky, so make sure to give yourself time to find a meter. There is also a lot on the corner of Melrose and La Cienega.
