Getting a Makeover in Hollywood or Beverly Hills

Billy and guest client for a makeover - head to toe
Makeovers in Hollywood.

When my client called from Florida, she said "You seemed so sweet and approachable and your location didn't seem stuffy like all those other Beverly Hills salons so I knew I had to call you.  Then when I found out you went to college in Kentucky - I knew you had to be good people."  

It's comments like these that always make my work super special, and rewarding.   I was never one of those "I'm the artist now sit down" hair stylists.    What do I know?   Many stylists go down that road only to find short lived careers and ultimate burn-out after 10-15 years of know-it-all mentality.  I revel in my work, the results, and how it makes people feel when you spin them around in the chair.  It's that split-second AHA moment - and almost teary reactions that make me love what I do more and more every day.

Truth be told, I can't take all the credit.  I have a brilliant team of experts around me that make my work look amazing.   When it comes to professional wardrobe styling, I can't think of anyone else than my dear friend Jill Laine for wardrobe styling in Los Angeles.

So when it comes to your own special event whether it's a get-together, an anniversary, a celebration of some kind (or perhaps you dumped your boyfriend and you're hitting the town with your best girlfriend) - we love working with people just like you - who want to look good, feel great, and love who you are - even for one special day.

To all of you out there (and though I may never get to meet ALL of you)  I thank you for keeping me passionate about my work and loving this torch that I've been called to carry.  

Always yours in beauty,

Billy Lowe
