Miss A Columnist

Melissa Curtin covers charity and style related events and loves to cover LA's best in beauty, fashion, and culture. She is an educator who recently returned to the classroom to motivate and inspire third graders at a private school in Pacific Palisades. In 2012, she launched an educational T-shirt line called Wear2learn. When she is not working out, hiking a canyon, or at the beach, she is writing. Her latest dream come true has been travel writing for Johnny Jet.

After teaching in the Maryland public school system for almost a decade, she left the conservative East Coast environment in Washington, DC for West Coast living. Eager for adventure, inner growth, and a new environment, she packed her car and took to the open road on her own landing in her new home - Hollywood, California. As a Connecticut Yankee at heart, she has now lived in Los Angeles for six years surrounded by the stars.

Melissa graduated from Gettysburg College with a double major in psychology and art history. Soon after, she earned a Master's Degree in education. Melissa traveled around the world on Semester at Sea, and earned a Fulbright Scholarship which enabled her to teach in England. A lust for travel and learning has fueled her globe trotting ever since. Some of her favorite destinations are Costa Rica, Thailand, Fiji, Morocco, Vietnam, Belgium, Italy, Sicily, Prague, Egypt, Australia, Greece, and Paris.

Los Angeles has won over her heart. She is constantly taking advantage of what LA LA Land has to offer - new boutiques and restaurants, finding great deals, discovering new hikes and beaches, music, and West Coast fashion.

L Lash Lounge, a full service lash, brow, makeup, and skin care studio in Beverly Hills was a very pleasant surprise. L Lash Lounge is exactly that- a small, intimate studio space surrounded by many other discreet indepenent studio spaces for tanning, hair, waxing and more.

Founded by celebrity lash and brow stylist, Linda Fernandez, L Lash Lounge is a private boutique beauty experience where customers can go to be pampered. The older lady before me looked incredible in her natural upper set of lush feathery lashes. They looked real, which is how I would want mine to look. Her luscious lashes took about an hour and a half and they can run you anywhere from $65 – $250+.

I opted to have my brows done, which were long overdue. Esme Winterflood is one of the lash specialists. Instead, my brows were waxed, brushed, tweezed, and trimmed my bushy eyebrows to perfection, but still the way I like them, a bit au natural. She was kind and fast, which I like since I wince in pain at the thought of someone else touching my brows.

You can also get a brow tint, lash tint, sugaring, and one of many facial services, like the hydra facial starting at $225 for 60 minutes to reduce the signs of aging. The treatment uses vortex cleaning, hydro-peel exfoliation, extraction, and fusion all simultaneously.

For your new lashes, brows, or brighter skin, visit their website. On location services are also available. This 90210 spot is perfect to get numerous “home” improvements done at once.
