To Beautify: Shin

To Beautify: Shin(Courtesy of Shin Salon)With the risk of getting myself kicked out of the state, I’m here to tell you that for most California girls those naturally sun-kissed locks aren’t actually all that natural, myself included. To achieve my subtle ombre hue, I book it to Shin hair salon. Shin An and her army of ultra-talented stylists are nothing short of magicians when it comes to nailing the ideal shade of blonde (or red, or brunette) to complement any complexion. Whether I’m in desperate need of a trim or a full-on follicle overhaul, Shin’s famous dry-cutting technique is the answer to just about any hair-related predicament.

To Beautify: ShinThe cottage-like, Asian-themed salon space works double duty as a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. A neutral color palette and friendly atmosphere make for an ideal hideaway to hunker down for a cut and color or an intricate nail art session with the in-house manicurist. An adjoining beauty bungalow serves as a treatment room where one can indulge in a number of skin-bettering treatments and massages. Looking to take a piece of the experience home with you? A hand-picked selection of makeup and haircare products eliminates the guesswork out of restocking your beauty arsenal.
