BEST OF THE CITY THE ABOUT FACE DC native Adrienne Shostak left behind a successful beauty business in London to return to her roots with a skincare salon in Georgetown. When Adrienne Shostak left DC for London, she was a post-collegiate expat with a job cataloging art at a private collection. When she returned to America seven years later, she was a star facialist with a successful beauty business to her name. She got her training at the London School of Beauty and Makeup before opening her British business, but, last year, the blond beauty decided to set up shop in Georgetown. Bespoke Aesthetics is just what the name says—a custom skincare clinic that caters to clients looking for holistic solutions. Shostak o ers everything from organic facials to medical-grade chemical peels. “Rather than booking a treatment, you book a block of time,” she explains. After just one year, she’s expanded into a larger space on Wisconsin Avenue and plans to launch her own skincare line. $150-$450 per hour, 1625 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 2nd Floor, 202.817.3949, adrienneshostak.com Health & Beauty JUST SAY SPA In the past year, we saw the opening of French import Caudalie Spa (us.caudalie.com) at CityCenterDC; Sanctuary Cosmetic Center (sanctuarycosmeticcenter. com), a medispa offering high-tech skincare treatments, in Tysons; and, most recently, homegrown beauty brand Skincando (skincando.com) launching its fi rst long-term pop-up at The Emerald Door Eco Spa in Silver Spring.
