Hair, nails and make-up for the season of sun and fun from Goldwell, OPI and Mirabella. The Academy at Santa Monica for KMS California and Goldwell and Studio 1452 have seen a lot of action since opening earlier this year, but no one was prepared for the MODERN entourage that took over the space for a day in May. Our party of 20 arrived to “build a story” around four of our favorite OPI shades: “Birthday Babe,” “Baguette Me Not,” “Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not” and “Suzi and the Lifeguard.”
