We can hardly keep track of all the specialty beauty studios cropping up as of late. From Blushington to Drybar, full-service beauty is accessible as ever, providing the everyday gal with their very own celebrity-like glam squad to help them nail that Hollywood look they've spent countless hours trying to replicate at home. The latest salon to offer quick-stop beautification is Santa Monica's Butterscotch, but this place has an interesting eco twist.
If you're looking for a natural full-body bronze but want to avoid the skin-damaging tanning beds advocated by the Jersey Shore cast, then a sunless airbrush tan is your best bet. Butterscotch offers organic airbrush tanning to provide eco-friendly patrons with a guilt-free glow that's as tan as the candy treat the salon is named after. Other services include makeup application featuring Butterscotch's signature line of mineral-based cosmetics, as well as makeup lessons, eyebrow shaping, and eyelash extensions.
Now, an exclusive deal for you: As a first-visit welcome gift to Racked readers, Butterscotch's owners Mar Fujimoto and Jenna Zucker are offering 20% off any service when you mention this article, so swing by Tuesday through Thursday (11am to 7pm) or Friday through Saturday (11am to 8pm) and tell 'em Racked sent you!
