I have been a customer of Jen’s (owner/operator of Glow) for five years. She runs an excellent business with the right mix of play and professionalism. Living in Santa Barbara I have my choice of great estheticians, but none gives a thoroughly relaxing, cleansing, and results-oriented facial quite like Jen. Need waxing? This is THE place to go. Jen uses only the best products and operates at lightening speed, so my skin never feels sticky or irritated. Best Brazilians!
★★☆☆☆ Fabulous! Zaveeni K.
Jen has been waxing my face for over 10 years. She does an outstanding job and she is quite efficient. I highly recommend her. She has wonderful interpersonal skills and she is very professional. I always call her at the last minute and she tries to accommodate me. I would not go to anyone else.

★★★★★ The BEST in SoCal Brittany M.
I have been to many estheticians in southern Ca, and I can honestly say that Jen from Glow is the best I have found hands down. She did my very first bikini wax, and I decided to go full monty for my first. She is so incredibly fast, mellow, and makes you feel comfortable immediately. I am so lucky that I happened to find her… because I will not be going anywhere else but to Glow now. I HIGHLY recommend her for any of your spa needs.

I go to Jen for brow waxing…and she is amazing! My previously plain looking brows are now perfectly shaped with a great looking arch. Jen is warm, friendly, and a total pro at what she does best…making you look good. I can’t imagine even trying a different salon…Jen is great!

★★★★★ The BEST!! Danielle D.
I would recommend this waxing/facial expert to anyone!! She is so knowledgeable about everything from head to toe beauty and how to maintain it! Being an Esthetician myself, I have become very picky as to who I will have give me facials and of course brazilians! But Jen makes you feel so comfortable and is very open to your individual needs. I am always satisfied and feel as if I can let go of the control freak inside and just let her do her thing.

★★★★★ Glowing from the inside-out! Monica L.
I was pleasantly surprised during my first experience with GLOW—that was 8 years ago. Jen, the owner and main esthetician actually listened to my request for a simple “cleaning up” of my brows (which I chose to keep thick.) Her work was subtle; but had a wonderful result of “opening up” my eyes.
When asked, I’m happy to share my “secret” ,Jen’s talent, with other people– particularly mothers of teen daughters who need someone to wax their brows for the first time or help with complexions.
They are not disappointed; which is probably why Jen continues to thrive in her business as a sole business owner in Santa Barbara.
In addition to waxing, Jen gives a very relaxing facial or massage without the pressure of buying products.
I would like to comment on the quality of her skin care line which includes anything from European sunscreens or blemish erasers, to skin brighteners and exfolients.
Over the past 8 years my skin has changed– along with its needs. Jen has always known just the right product or service to help me not only attain a smooth complexion; but maintain it as well!
It’s great to have someone you can trust to deliver personal service and products that really do make a difference. When I leave her peaceful salon, Jen, she says, “You’re beautifyed” and that’s just how I feel….beautiful!
