You understand that you’re strolling into the identical institution, its a spot that seems like residence. It’s made to really feel that manner. They share the identical aesthetic, the identical caliber of excellence and unmatched service. The one distinction is which aspect of the nation you’re in, and the grand entrances. I like that the Joanna Vargas Salon’s embody the town through which they’re in. The vibes match the environment like a glove.
NEW YORK CITY FLAGSHIP
In New York Metropolis, you’re ushered right into a gilded gold elevator, the place the doorways open instantly into the Joanna Vargas Flagship. The huge duplex on Fifth Avenue is positioned instantly 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. ft of pure luxurious, pampering, expertise, and a globally branded powerhouse.
WEST HOLLYWOOD HIDEAWAY
In Los Angeles, Joanna’s sanctuary is a bit totally different. It was imagined to be. Not an oz of the model’s aesthetic or DNA is lacking within the Los Angeles salon. The placement and hidden nature add an air of enjoyable and a degree of mystique to it. As you’re driving down Sundown Boulevard proper earlier than Chateau Marmont, you see Jeff Klein’s iconic Artwork Deco landmark, the Sundown Tower Resort. It’s inside the lodge that the Joanna Vargas Salon is nestled away. It was her shopper Invoice Murray that was one to counsel the Sundown Tower Resort to her, and what a suggestion. Shortly after, Mr. Klein himself signed up for companies.
As soon as inside you’re personally greeted by lodge workers and escorted in direction of the guarded elevator banks. The lodge is thought, amongst different issues, for its predisposition on safety and the privateness of its friends. 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 With its brass railings hailing from the lodge’s heydays of Outdated Hollywood, you attain the doorway to the Joanna Vargas Salon. Not one to stray from the infamous discretion of the lodge, the spa isn’t instantly evident. It’s positioned behind massive golden velvet curtains, with two glass doorways bearing the identify Joanna Vargas on them. The second you stroll by way of these doorways, it’s evident that this space of the lodge is Joanna’s area.
Whereas the 2 areas couldn’t be extra totally different, each in location, entrance and dimension; they internally stay practically an identical. Whereas New York has its huge open areas, the West Hollywood setting at Sundown Tower affords a extra private ambiance. All the therapy rooms include their very own en-suite showers, soaking tubs, and bogs. My favourite California amenity? The potential to order from the lodge’s in-room eating menu, must you work up an urge for food! The remedies, her distinctive workers, and cutting-edge instruments all stay the identical. However would you count on something much less from Joanna Vargas? She has cemented her standing in having probably the most luxurious settings for movie star skincare from coast-to-coast.
Her capacity to maintain her namesake aesthetic for her bicoastal clientele, and herself, comes naturally to Joanna. Once I say pure, don’t mistake that for simple. This all comes with the value of laborious work and dedication. This lady works her ass her ass off for her purchasers! She spends years working formulating her merchandise, and can by no means slap her identify throughout a product that doesn’t meet these practically unattainable to me requirements. The impeccably trendy, and really west coast extension of all the pieces that I like about Joanna, is perfection. The Joanna Vargas Salon at Sundown Tower delivers the privateness, consolation and luxurious her purchasers have develop into accustomed to. It’s an additional extension of the sensation that at all times retains them clamoring again for extra. Along with her merchandise now prominently displayed within the lodge present store within the foyer, it’s much more publicity. I’ve gotten myself into loads of bother in that present store all through my stays there. If these had been within the present store then, I might have saved so much on delivery charges.
IT WAS MY FIRST TIME…
Whereas 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 purchasers have been already feening to get on the schedule. Staying in step with the California security tips, one particular person was allowed within the ready room at a time. Everybody had their temperature checked, and everybody was required to put on masks. The comfy entrance displayed her signature pale pink and white hues. Every of her namesake merchandise displayed proudly on their rose gold show stands.
I used to be very excited to lastly make my approach to the Los Angeles Salon, or JVLA. Since I spent a lot time on the NYC location dwelling there, I might at all times 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 crew. Particularly since I will likely be residing within the Los Angeles space for the close to future. The area is was precisely how I envisioned it will be. An impossibly stylish hideaway for her West Coast devoted purchasers, and for lodge friends alike.
MISS SORA CONNOR
Whereas Joanna and I have been coordinating me coming in whereas she was on the town, she was adamant that I meet her Grasp Esthetician and Model 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? If you end up having such participating dialog and time simply passes by so shortly. I used to be thrilled that Joanna put us collectively, as Sora immediately turned my trip or die over on the Tower.
Sora used various applied sciences and strategies on me, some new and a few tried and true. Most significantly being the Cryotherapy facial machine that Joanna sourced from Japan! She knew what I favored earlier than I even arrived, she had even learn my earlier work! That’s a degree of dedication to attending to know a shopper! All through the Triple Crown, Sora used micro-current, microdermabrasion, PLENTY of oxygen infusions, LED gentle remedy, and some extractions sadly. These are by no means enjoyable!
Once 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 mix of merchandise and instruments that Joanna got here up with initially for herself. Not solely does it set off heavy collagen and elastin manufacturing, but it surely continues to afterwards. That’s what not solely gave me the seen outcomes instantly after, however outcomes I proceed to see after. Like those I see right this moment.
After the remedies the three of us all sat and chatted across the couches and chairs within the therapy room. Speaking about what’s been occurring in our lives, and the success of the Magic Glow Wand. I defined how a lot I like it, and why I do know it’s gotten such a optimistic response from males. For as soon as it provides us the flexibility to soak up the components in her sheet masks. Not have the dear components wasted, and the system pushes them into our beard.
I didn’t sleep effectively final evening, so very first thing this morning I placed on her Brilliant Eye Firming Masks. I then doubled up and put the Twilight Face Masks 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 Brilliant Eye Firming Masks for a few yr now. Each time I’ve one thing necessary taking place early within the day, these suckers come out to play. It actually reduces any darkish circles, the system sucks away any puffiness, and I look WIDE AWAKE. Which has at all times been a wrestle with me within the mornings.
Now that the Los Angeles Spa is now open, they’re providing 30% off of Salon Present Playing cards for a restricted time solely. The deal is sweet by way of July 4, 2020, and is relevant in direction of remedies and Joanna Vargas merchandise.
