what_is

Face Haus is a brand new concept “facial bar” that is revolutionizing skin care. Historically a pricey and time consuming service reserved for the elite or special occasions, Face Haus is now offering high quality and affordable skincare “for the people.”

Once you step into the clean, hip, Scandinavian modern space, you will know you’ve found something cool. From the fresh playlist to the high-end skincare lines and highly trained estheticians, you know your money and time will be well spent. And at just 40 minutes and $55 for a facial, why not?

story
As told by founders Karey Burke, Dawn Olmstead & Jenn Worley

dawn:

About a year ago the three of us treated our daughters to a “teen facial” for a 13th birthday that broke the bank. $150 a piece.

karey:

Then flash forward a month. Pores are clogged, skin’s looking not-so-great…

jenn:

Everyone needed facials again, but who can possibly afford it on a regular basis?

dawn:

So we casually said we wished there was a skincare place like Drybar. What if you could get a good facial for the price of a mani-pedi?

jenn:

We wondered why facials cost so much to begin with. We did research and found that the cost of the actual ingredients, even when using top quality products, was very little.

karey:

We also found that most people don’t like having to undress and go into a dark, private room. Especially teenagers.

dawn:

We thought, what if we used the same high-end products, and eliminate all the extras… the candles, the hand massage, the high overhead.

jenn:

We started dreaming up an open plan concept with fresh, modern, Scandinavian design, cold-pressed juices and a great playlist.

karey:

Somewhere people want to go, and can afford to go. And then go again.

team

 
Karey is one of the founder/owners of Face Haus. In addition to having three kids, she runs both a television production company and marathons! Her overall endurance, contagious positive attitude and amazing ability to get it all done makes her a huge asset to the team. And the fact that she served as Executive Vice President of programming at NBC and oversaw the development of 'Friends,' 'Freaks and Geeks' and 'Scrubs' doesn't make us love her any less.
 
Dawn is also a founder/owner and designer of Face Haus. A Brooklyn native and full-fledged art geek, we like to refer to Dawn as “the producer.” With a rocking television and film producing career and five (yes, five) kids, we think she deserves the title! Having produced over eight television series including ‘Prison Break,’ ‘Tru Calling’ and ‘Point Pleasant,’ Dawn’s stamina and spot-on business sense make her an irreplaceable gem!
 
Jenn is the third founder/owner of Face Haus. Lovingly referred to by the team as “JWoww” or “The Gas Pedal," Jenn likes to get it done, and get it done well. She must thrive under pressure because she has four kids at home, and a resume that includes designing, manufacturing and nationally distributing her own tween accessory line, authoring ‘The Stay-at-Home Martyr’ for Lion’s Press and serving as Vice President of Creative Affairs for Radar Pictures.
 
Craig is CFO of Face Haus. His vast and impressive run in the business world makes our heads spin, and his Type A+ attention to detail keeps us all on our toes. Currently serving as the principal at Ceres Financial Management, Craig also functions as CFO for many of his clients' companies, including Steven Bochco Productions, and has taken a multitude of successful brands and companies to market. And he just got his first facial. Which he really liked.
 
Dr. Lancer is the exclusive consulting physician to Face Haus, and well, how do we put it without sounding too proud of ourselves... OPRAH’S GUY!!!! Dr. Lancer is a world-renowned Dermatologist with a long-standing private practice in Beverly Hills. We could go on forever about his phenomenal reputation, celebrity client list, Harvard training and fantastic skincare line, but what we love most about Dr. Lancer is his commitment to skin health. We couldn’t agree more with him that, “When you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you look even better.”
 
Lydia is the Face Haus architectural designer extraordinaire. With international retail design & build experience including Petit Bateau, Eres and Roche Bobois, we are in seriously talented hands. And did we mention she’s French and her name, brace yourself for total jealousy… is ‘Lydia Dubois Wetherwax’????
