Zoey Van Jones
Founder/Eyebrow & Makeup Artist
What do you get when you mix a master’s degree in fine art, a rock-n-roll personality and an expertise for shaping eyebrows? Meet Zoey Van Jones. She crafted her artistic talents in beauty at MAC Cosmetics. It was there that her design background coupled with her skills in makeup artistry inspired her aesthetic for shaping brows. Zoey’s warm, friendly approach also made her a natural teacher as she took the time to show clients how to see their brow’s optimum form. After an apprenticeship with a prominent celebrity brow artist in Beverly Hills, Zoey went out on her own where she quickly became one of the most requested eyebrow-shapers in the area. With growing demand, she opened Zoey Van Jones Brow Studio in 2007 featuring a staff of talented, like-minded eyebrow artists that she’s mentored in her brow philosophy.
“I’m totally motivated by teaching people to ‘see it’. You can see the ‘ah-ha’ come across a client’s face, it makes what we do worthwhile. Doing something that empowers people to feel better about themselves and the way they look every day is awesome! In the salon, I wanted to create an environment that was friendly and inclusive.”

"I just had my first appointment here with Melissa for a bikini and brow wax. It went amazing! She is so sweet and professional. I always get nervous with new people doing my brows because they're so thin, but she exceeded my expectations. She was extremely gentle and careful, she was thorough, and took her time to make sure it was perfect and that I was happy before I left. I will definitely be coming back and requesting Melissa!"
