Skin expert Melanie Grant opens a beautiful new space
"The studio is an immersive and intimate experience…"
For her first skin studio in the United States, famed Australian esthetician Melanie Grant chose to open in sunny, neon-soaked Los Angeles. And yet, after stepping into the newly opened space in West Hollywood, a visitor may feel that she’s been whisked from Melrose Place to Paris’s premier arrondissement. The curved staircase, embraced by a wall of mirrors, gives a nod to Coco Chanel’s apartment on Rue Cambon. Upstairs in Grant’s aerie, furnishings scouted in France and Italy imbue the space with quiet elegance. “The studio is an immersive and intimate experience which embodies the design, intimacy, and warmth of a contemporary Parisian apartment,” Grant says, adding that she hopes clients will feel at home in the space. With only two treatment rooms and a private feel, doing so is easy. Plus, considering the glow-giving results of Grant’s signature facials—which incorporate results-oriented technologies such as diamond-tip microdermabrasion and light therapy—it’s tempting to move altogether.
