2008 June Great Treatment - DERMASCOPE Magazine
I am a longtime client of Julianna's, and I started visiting her when her salon was in Grapevine in 2006. I haven't been to her new salon, because its just quite far away from where I am most days. But I can add a few thoughts on her services.
1) Julianna has always been very very busy. She has always been very accommodating to me when she could, and I assure you I am neither rich nor famous, and very often, not on time. That said, she is occasionally just overwhelmed with her schedule and has a slight swing to her personality. My hairdresser, also at the Grapevine salon, told me that was usually an indicator she needed to eat.
2) Regarding her film/tv work. I am sometimes called on by documentarians and local news crews for interviews and/or tours in the nature of my work. I can say as a generalization, film and tv has absolutely no concern for your convenience or your other obligations. Julianna is a very talented makeup artist, and is blessed to be asked to do these programs. Yes, she chooses to take on this work and there is necessarily some business fallout. Her choice, but I give you some insight so you know that fitting in the film/tv opportunities are not easy.
3) Regarding her skincare and makeup services. I have been privileged to have received services at great salons as a fringe benefit to my husband's work. Thus I have experienced a range of talent from beauty schools to high end salons like Fred Segal in LA and Atherton Cox in London. I have had lots of experiences talented but not skillful, skillful but not talented, not talented and not skillful and not interested. Here is my bottom line with Julianna. Julianna is technically skilled AND naturally, exceptionally talented. Julianna is amazingly talented, and this is why, despite being difficult to get hold of and sometimes edgy, I keep going back to her - sometimes driving 50 miles to see her.
Now that is my assessment. Here are some specific results. In my opinion, Julianna is most particularly talented as a facialist and withaesthetic grooming(like eyebrows and makeup). Whether its a regular cleansing facial or a therapeutic facial, my skin was glowing, fresh, calmed and not inflamed, softer, and visibly cleaner. Her waxing services are thorough, respectful and will make you feel good about your body. Her mineral makeup custom blending is color true, and she has been willing to mail me a new jar (she keeps my formula and color recipe on file). Her workspace was notably clean. She can get preachy about nutrition, smoking and drinking, but I consider this part of her job too. I am paying her a lot of money to undue the damage I wreck upon my skin, I expect her to be direct with me and to expect from me that I care about my skin honestly, not just with lip service.
4) I generally like the product lines she carries, which include Dermalogica, Pevonia and Mineralogie. I find her prices reasonable on the retail market. I do wish she carried Phytomer.Michelle HGrapevine,TX2011
I met Julianna on a movie project where she had to make me look like a
guy in his 30's living in the 1970's and also, in the same film, age
me 30+ years in the early 2000's. I was amazed with her work with the
make up. But what really showed me even more was her knowledge about
skin care. Being an actor there is makeup being put on all the time.
But I never thought of the proper way to take care of the skin it was
being applied to. Growing up, I just washed my face with soap and
water. Then when I went through high school, I tried various products
for acne and to clear up blemishes from shaving. It wasn't until I
started a dialogue with Julianna and following her advice, did I see
real result. My friends would comment on how my face looks better and
some have asked what have I been doing. I just tell them I have gotten
some professional advice in how to take care of my skin and they could
benefit greatly from visiting Julianna and allowing her expertise to
show them how to fix some of their skincare issues.
Julianna is truly a miracle worker! I have been fighting acne and skin problems my entire life.My mother took me to my first dermatologist when I was in the third grade. Now at the age of 33, I have used every topical application you can think of
and even some oral medications too.I first visited Julianna about 1 1/2 years
ago and she has truly changed my life.
Julianna is a caring person who sincerely wants the best for her clients.I was desperate for help the day I found Julianna.She gave me what time she had that day as a walk-in and I have scheduled regularly with her ever since.Her expertise enabled her to choose the right products for the type of help I needed and she "taught" me how to manage my skin and its' problems which included my fair share of sun damage as well.I cannot not say enough about her skills, techniques, and knowledge of skincare.
Thanks for all of your specialized care, Julianna.I hope you know how much you are appreciated and how much value you have added back to my life!!
Not only does Julianna know her products, she knows how to cater to the needs of each of her clients based on their skin type. Her passion is to have each client have radiant skin and does whatever she has to make that happen. Because of her treatments and products I have seen a remarkable difference in my skin. Thanks to Julianna’s knowledge, experience and expertise I now have people complementing me on my glowing skin!
Thanks so much, Julianna! See you soon.
When I first started going to Julianna I had severe acne problems that I had tried many different ways to get rid of. After just a few monthly treatments and an awesome skin care regiment I saw a drastic difference. I highly recommend Julianna and the skin care product she uses.
When I met Julianna about five years ago, my skin was in terrible condition.I had been using expensive over the counter products but nothing seemed to be working. Julianna taught me about skin care.She did treatments on my skin and told me there was no quick fix.She told me it would take time but the results would be amazing and she was right.Julianna has researched the products she uses and only uses product lines and products that she knows are of the highest quality.She completely customizes every client’s skin care regimen.She has also treated two of my children for adolescent acne – each with different skin care products and regimens because their symptoms were completely different from each other.They both ended up with clear skin and good skin care routines with excellent products because Julianna teaches her clients how to take care of their skin once they leave the salon. I had to move out of the area but I go back to Julianna for my skin care – and I am not the only client who does this.Skin care specialists are not all the same – when you find a professional like Julianna, it is invaluable.I will count on her knowledge and expertise for as long as Julianna is doing skin care.
I have been a client of Julianna’s for over three years and hope to be one for life! I continually receive comments on how great my skin looks!I absolutely love Julianna’s products and treatments! Julianna has the experience and knowledge and that added with a passion for her work and a heart to truly help people makes her SHINE!
Mucho Blessings to YOU!!!
When I first went to see Julianna my face was a disaster! I have been battling acne for about 5 years. I was constantly reading and trying different ways that I could effectively get rid of all the blemishes and pimples on my face. Nothing seemed to work. My sister introduced me to Julianna and I have honestly been blessed. After meeting with Julianna my face and complexion has improved dramatically!
Julianna's amazing knowledge of skin and the proper treatment of taking care of our face; along with her kind demeanor was greatly needed and appreciated. Highly recommend to anyone whether they have a serious face condition like I did or just someone wanting a simple facial and an extra know how on how to properly and lovingly take care of our face.
