away from the Studio: the March!

i'll be away from the studio this Saturday to attend the Women's March in LA, a sister march to the one concurrent in DC.  based on the number of emails with links to the March that i've sent to clients, many of us both want to go and need more info.  so i pulled together links that i found helpful along with some detailed interviews with organizers to stoke the fires for empowerment, inclusiveness, and courageous conversations.

i want to acknowledge what a privilege i feel it is to be able to attend this march.  thank you to my clients who were willing to move from their previously scheduled appointments for this Saturday. and thanks to other clients who understood why they weren't able to book this Saturday.  thank you also to my partner in love & life, the Hub, who fully supports my attending and will be marching with us.

get to know be well {groomed!}



bw{g!} clubhouse
be well {groomed!} resides at Studio 41 in swanky SalonRepublic on Pico.  i spend a lot of time here so i try to keep it cozy and welcoming ... leopard print and deep purple, gold accents and unicorn lamps (natch!).

curiouser & curiouser
my folks are those sorts of people who are always in the know.  and they raised their kiddoes to ask good questions. this served me well in corporate advertising & marketing, of course.  but also in my pursuit to help clients feel good in their skin.  i soon realized the best products & services weren't the end all, be all; the solutions didn't stop at my studio door.  happy skin comes from more than lotions and potions (tho those can make a big difference). you also have to consider lifestyle factors (mitigating stress, nutrition, movement, rest, outlook) as well as environment, heredity and other factors (all of this is also known as epigenetics).  so along with the latest ingredients and treatments, i also dig deep into the benefits of optimizing whatchya eat, how ya think, whatchya do, how well ya sleep and more.

professional body sugaring
it all began with facials ... then, holy zeitgeist waxing took over (right time, right place!).  women (& men) began to see the many benefits to their skin when they ditched their razor and scheduled in consistent removal of hair by the root: fewer ingrowns, smoother skin, fewer blemishes and far less long-lasting waste going into the trash.  in continual search for the very best treatments for my clients (see curiouser & curiouser above), i began studying the sugaring process. et voila, here we are today!

le blog
the esteemable *they* say we teach what we most need to learn.  to tweak this a bit, i would say i write what i most need to get out of my head. it's noisy in there, yo!  and as my many fabulous clients come and go, they typically have very similar questions about keeping their skin glowing. so, keeping the blog serves multiple masters.

connecting
the best part of this gig is YOU, walking into my studio on a regular basis with your trials, tribulations, successes and celebrations!  to make my day and get in here, you can book an appointment online. if you have any difficulties or can't find a time that works for your busy schedule, do not hesitate to email or call. (kenya@bewellgroomed.com / (310) 866-0928).  i'm working on a few new service options that might include working together via digital options, too (stay tuned!). 


come see me!
