You know that you’re strolling into the identical institution, its a spot that appears like house. It’s made to really feel that means. They share the identical aesthetic, the identical caliber of excellence and unequalled service. The solely distinction is which facet of the nation you’re in, and the grand entrances. I like that the Joanna Vargas Salon’s embody the town wherein they’re in. The vibes match the environment like a glove.
NEW YORK CITY FLAGSHIP
In New York City, you’re ushered right into a gilded gold elevator, the place the doorways open straight into the Joanna Vargas Flagship. The huge duplex on Fifth Avenue is positioned straight throughout the New York Public Library at Bryant Park. The higher ground of the New York location’s holds the JV Headquarters, and the salon encompasses the primary ground. The artwork assortment, curated by Mrs. Vargas herself, would make even probably the most refined collectors envious. The duplex totals 14,000 sq. toes of pure luxurious, pampering, know-how, and a globally branded powerhouse.
WEST HOLLYWOOD HIDEAWAY
In Los Angeles, Joanna’s sanctuary is a bit completely different. It was imagined to be. Not an oz. of the model’s aesthetic or DNA is lacking within the Los Angeles salon. The location and hidden nature add an air of enjoyable and a degree of mystique to it. As you’re driving down Sunset Boulevard proper earlier than Chateau Marmont, you see Jeff Klein’s iconic Art Deco landmark, the Sunset Tower Hotel. It is throughout the lodge that the Joanna Vargas Salon is nestled away. It was her shopper Bill Murray that was one to counsel the Sunset Tower Hotel to her, and what a advice. Shortly after, Mr. Klein himself signed up for companies.
Once inside you’re personally greeted by lodge workers and escorted in direction of the guarded elevator banks. The lodge is understood, amongst different issues, for its predisposition on safety and the privateness of its visitors. From there you descend a blink and also you miss its marble staircase, down two ranges. With its brass railings hailing from the lodge’s heydays of Old Hollywood, you attain the doorway to the Joanna Vargas Salon. Not one to stray from the infamous discretion of the lodge, the spa is just not instantly evident. It is positioned behind massive golden velvet curtains, with two glass doorways bearing the identify Joanna Vargas on them. The second you stroll by these doorways, it’s evident that this space of the lodge is Joanna’s area.
While the 2 places couldn’t be extra completely different, each in location, entrance and dimension; they internally stay almost equivalent. While New York has its huge open areas, the West Hollywood setting at Sunset Tower affords a extra private ambiance. All of the therapy rooms include their very own en-suite showers, soaking tubs, and loos. My favourite California amenity? The functionality to order from the lodge’s in-room eating menu, must you work up an urge for food! The therapies, her distinctive workers, and state-of-the-art instruments all stay the identical. But would you count on something much less from Joanna Vargas? She has cemented her standing in having probably the most luxurious settings for superstar skincare from coast-to-coast.
Her means to maintain her namesake aesthetic for her bicoastal clientele, and herself, comes naturally to Joanna. When I say pure, don’t mistake that for simple. This all comes with the value of arduous work and dedication. This girl works her ass her ass off for her shoppers! She spends years working formulating her merchandise, and can by no means slap her identify throughout a product that doesn’t meet these almost unimaginable to me requirements. The impeccably fashionable, and really west coast extension of every part that I like about Joanna, is perfection. The Joanna Vargas Salon at Sunset Tower delivers the privateness, consolation and luxurious her shoppers have turn into accustomed to. It’s an additional extension of the sensation that all the time retains them clamoring again for extra. With her merchandise now prominently displayed within the lodge reward store within the foyer, it’s much more publicity. I’ve gotten myself into lots of hassle in that reward store all through my stays there. If these had been within the reward store then, I might have saved quite a bit on delivery charges.
IT WAS MY FIRST TIME…
While yesterday was my first day being on the LA salon with Joanna, I did know what to anticipate. Having simply re-opened two days in the past, her Los Angeles shoppers have been already feening to get on the schedule. Staying according to the California security pointers, one individual was allowed within the ready room at a time. Everyone had their temperature checked, and everybody was required to put on masks. The cozy entrance displayed her signature pale pink and white hues. Each of her namesake merchandise displayed proudly on their rose gold show stands.
I used to be very excited to lastly make my option to the Los Angeles Salon, or JVLA. Since I spent a lot time on the NYC location residing there, I might all the time simply wait till I used to be again within the metropolis to go after I was in LA. So I positively wanted to get on that very same degree with the LA staff. Especially since I might be residing within the Los Angeles space for the close to future. The area is was precisely how I envisioned it might be. An impossibly stylish hideaway for her West Coast devoted shoppers, and for lodge visitors alike.
MISS SORA CONNOR
While Joanna and I have been coordinating me coming in whereas she was on the town, she was adamant that I meet her Master Esthetician and Brand Ambassador Sora Connor. Her instincts are by no means off, and this was no exception. We hit it off from the second I laid again on that desk, and earlier than I knew it, that Triple Crown Facial and extra was completed! Don’t you hate when that occurs? When you’re having such participating dialog and time simply passes by so rapidly. I used to be thrilled that Joanna put us collectively, as Sora immediately grew to become my experience or die over on the Tower.
Sora used various applied sciences and methods on me, some new and a few tried and true. Most importantly being the Cryotherapy facial machine that Joanna sourced from Japan! She knew what I preferred earlier than I even arrived, she had even learn my earlier work! That’s a degree of dedication to attending to know a shopper! Throughout the Triple Crown, Sora used micro-current, microdermabrasion, PLENTY of oxygen infusions, LED mild remedy, and some extractions sadly. Those are by no means enjoyable!
When I stood up, I noticed these outcomes not solely instantly, however in spades. My face was sculpted, had zero puffiness, was toned and tight. I had fairly the radiant glow if I do say so myself. The Triple Crown facial makes use of a mixture of merchandise and instruments that Joanna got here up with initially for herself. Not solely does it set off heavy collagen and elastin manufacturing, however it continues to afterwards. That is what not solely gave me the seen outcomes straight after, however outcomes I proceed to see after. Like those I see right now.
After the therapies the three of us all sat and chatted across the couches and chairs within the therapy room. Talking about what’s been occurring in our lives, and the success of the Magic Glow Wand. I defined how a lot I adore it, and why I do know it’s gotten such a constructive response from males. For as soon as it provides us the power to soak up the substances in her sheet masks. Not have the dear substances wasted, and the machine pushes them into our beard.
I didn’t sleep properly final evening, so very first thing this morning I placed on her Bright Eye Firming Mask. I then doubled up and put the Twilight Face Mask on high of it. Turned on that Magic Glow Wand, and for the three minutes let it do its work. I killed two birds with one stone, and I regarded like I did simply after I left the salon yesterday. I’ve been utilizing the Bright Eye Firming Masks for a couple of 12 months now. Whenever I’ve one thing necessary taking place early within the day, these suckers come out to play. It actually reduces any darkish circles, the machine sucks away any puffiness, and I look WIDE AWAKE. Which has all the time been a battle with me within the mornings.
Now that the Los Angeles Spa is now open, they’re providing 30% off of Salon Gift Cards for a restricted time solely. The deal is nice by July 4, 2020, and is relevant in direction of therapies and Joanna Vargas merchandise.
