About Us

Welcome to the Valley's best-kept secret - Vanity Cosmetics. This quaint, modern chic sanctuary sits amidst the shops and restaurants on Ventura Boulevard in the heart of Sherman Oaks. When I opened Vanity, I kept my beliefs about beauty foremost in my mind – beauty can be simple, provided that the right tools and skills are accessible.

My motto is the result of over 10 years of extensive training with some of the industries' top artists. Throughout my intensive years of study, I found that people felt best when they looked both natural and youthful, and I strive to give this result to all of my discerning clientele. To achieve this outcome, I focus intently on clients' needs, determining what combination of services can make customers feel and look their best.

In creating Vanity Cosmetics, I found fellow artists who share my beliefs and respect for attention and detail. Together, the artists at Vanity and I cater to our devoted clients' preferences, whether it be a quick visit for the gentle, tweeze-only brow shaping that we specialize in, or a day of beauty, including a relaxing facial by our esthetician, a cut and blow out from our very talented hair stylists and a skilled makeup application that reminds a woman that accentuating her features brings her individual beauty to the surface.

While getting pampered, we invite you to indulge in the exclusive lines we are proud to carry, from our own Vanity line to exclusive Senna Cosmetics. Vanity also carries Bare Minerals foundations, blushes, and lip glosses. MD Formulations skin care, and the ever so popular Beauty Blender. We have Terry Michelle body fragrances as well as very elegant jewelry and accessories.

Although our relaxing, comfortable salon is still largely a secret, it won't stay that way for long. Vanity Cosmetics was featured on E! News in the fall of 2005, and as it continues to be featured on TV and in print, this studio, along with our trained, devoted staff, are growing in popularity with the Southern California's discriminating residents.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you look and feel your best.

- Christine Turner, Owner and Artist
