EyeCandy Beauty Bar

Why should only the celebrities in Beverly Hills have the best in beauty? This is the question EyeCandy owner Karolin Sahakian would ask herself as she made the drive out of town. Well no more. Karolin decided we need right here in Montrose what they have. As a result EyeCandy was born. EyeCandy is a beauty bar dedicated to bringing the best in beauty to you with services and products that are exclusively for your face. Now let’s talk about some of the services. E.C. specializes in threading. Threading is a process of removing facial hair using – you guessed it – a spool of thread. The staff at EyeCandy are experts at this. For $16 they can sculpt and shape your eyebrows in just minutes. I had never heard of threading so Karolin graciously had one of her specialists give me a quick demo. It was fascinating! Apparently threading has been around for hundreds of years but is just coming into popularity in the Western culture. Threading is much easier on your skin than waxing. I don’t know how much attention you have paid to your eyebrows lately but I have to say your face gets a lift when your eyebrows are arched. This might be just what you need. While you are there you might want to treat yourself to a gourmet facial. EyeCandy is proud to introduce, exclusively in Los Angeles, facials using Natura Bisse products. These products are truly “top of the line.” For $95 you can book a 60 minute signature facial and experience these products for yourself. But wait! To celebrate their grand opening Karolin is offering a 20% discount to Crescenta Valley Weekly readers on their first service. That means you can try this gourmet facial in their brand new facial room for $76. OK, I’ll race you there! After all I want to see what the $325 anti-aging Diamond cream is like, an experience for sure. Karolin has spent a great deal of time choosing the best, exclusive skin care and cosmetic lines for EyeCandy. In addition to Natura Bisse, she carries Dermaquest and Color Science. Stop in 10 a.m. 7 p.m. Monday–Saturday to see them for yourself. EyeCandy (www.eyecandybeautybar.com, phone [818] 249-6500) is located at 2305 Honolulu right next to Pilates Plus. See how EyeCandy is “redefining beauty one face at a time.” On another note, mark your calendars for the first annual Montrose Film Festival Aug. 27 & 28. You can read all about it on the Montrose Shopping Park Facebook page. This is end of summer fun for the whole family. Make a memory in Montrose!
