I’ve had some amazing facials at Ole Henriksen’s spa – even before I got into the spa business myself. Actually, it was in his spa during a treatment, that I decided myself to pursue my dream and become an esthetician. And let me also start by saying, that I’ve had A LOT of facials in my life – as a teen I had severe acne, so I have definitely tried a lot on that account.
Ahhhh….everyone’s favorite Ole (or Ooolaaah, as the Americans would pronounce it). Let me start by saying, I’m CRAZY about Ole – I love his energy, his products and yes his energy! Also he’s always very sweet and kind, when you meet him – all the way to the core.
That’s why I have always made sure to stop by his spa, whenever I’m in LA – the spa is a bit tricky to find. This time was a little extra special as it was the day before the Oscar’s – doesn’t get any more Hollywood than that! Even if the rain was pouring down this day in the usually sunny LA. Just to set the scene for you – the spa is located on Sunset Blvd – well actually under Chin Chin restaurant with the entrance against Sunset Blvd. A bit complicated to explain – but hope you get the picture.
Casa del Mar – a hotel right by the beach in Santa Monica – not far from Santa Monica Pier. The hotel has been around since the roaring 20’s and is one of the most beautiful places in Santa Monica, if you ask me. I’ve wanted to see the inside for quite some years now – and of course to test the spa.
On a rainy Friday it happened…
