A decade of working in finance taught founder and CEO of Olive & June, Sarah Gibson Tuttle, the value of precision. When she quit her NYC hustle, moved west and opened the first location of her well-styled nail salon, every detail — from the massive selection of five-free polishes to the non-toxic treatment menu and adorable decor — was planned to perfection, and done so with the kind of love and personal attention that keeps celebs and other healthy Angelenos coming back again and again.
Olive & June now has three adorable locations across LA, with two new products available in-shop: a line of beauty teas to enjoy during treatments and to tote home, plus a line of brand new DIY nail stickers we cant wait to get our hands on.
We asked Sarah to join our Green Goddess Guide series on all things green beauty. Explore her top beauty tips below, including a low-maintenance, last-minute routine and a few K-beauty obsessions we’re all about…
If I only have 5 minutes to get ready, I…
Rock a low bun, throw on coverup, mascara and lip gloss.
Beauty obsession of the moment:
Our brand new Olive & June nail stickers, especially the cherries.
I drink our Beauty Teas every day — the horsetail herbs have made my nails so much stronger.
Can’t travel without…
Best beauty tip I ever learned backstage or on a shoot:
Cuticle oil always makes your mani look better. Just add a drop at the base of your nail and massage in!
For ultra-glamorous effect:
Use the Kirakira app for your nailfie (like a selfie for your nails).
Products I rely on for lips:
Sulwhasoo Lip Serum Stick in Blossom + Sara Happ Lip Slip on top.
Beauty tool I can’t live without:
Weirdest beauty habit:
Sometimes I use dry shampoo when my hair is just dried to make sure my (very fine) hair lasts through an event that evening.
Always in my evening clutch:
Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar. (I am obsessed with lip stains!)
In the shower I keep…
Everything from Kristin Ess’ new line for Target.
Once a month I…
Get a facial. Religiously.
After a long night or rough weekend…
The product that changed my skin…
Shani Darden’s retinol.
My go-to DIY recipe:
Almond milk + maca + matcha + cinnamon, mixed + frothed = the best morning latte.
