Get To Know Us
My name is Sharlena Hassani and I am a licensed esthetician in Los Angeles. My purpose as an esthetician is to spread my knowledge about skincare so that my clients can achieve and maintain healthy and clear skin! I spent years trying to figure out how to gain control over my own skin. Struggling with acne and pigmentation I tried and spent thousands on different products, went to multiple skincare specialists (e.g. estheticians, dermatologists) trying to achieve that beautiful clarity and glow that every person wants from their skin. Some products worked a little, but nothing made the lasting, long-term difference that I was desperately seeking. That is when I decided to take matters into my own hands and my passion for skincare started! I studied ingredients and cosmetic chemistry to figure out the connection between specific substances and how the skin functions on a day-to-day basis. Doing so has not only allowed me to finally have complete control over my skin, but to know exactly what it takes to maintain clear, youthful and glowing skin! Everybody deserves to be comfortable in his or her own skin – it is my goal to help our clients achieve that confidence.

Shar is a skincare queen!!!!
She has been keeping my skin in pristine condition since 2016, when I started seeing her at the previous salon she worked at. She is so knowledgable, personable, helpful, and flexible. I was struggling with moderate acne, cystic pimples that would cause a lot of pain, and combination skin that constantly fluctuated and was hard to work with. From even before my first facial with her, we discussed my skin type and what my concerns were, so that we could come up with a personalized regimen for my skin every day. She helped me pick and choose which products were best for me and what the essentials were so that I could stick to my budget. The regimen alone made such a substantial difference I couldn't believe it!
During the first facial, Shar explained to me exactly what each step of the process was, and made me feel super comfortable. I felt pampered and at the same time was able to learn more about my skin and what it needed. Since then, I haven't had any major breakouts-maybe a couple super minor zits every once in a great while. I feel so much more confident when I leave the house and it's incredible to feel like I don't need to put on makeup every time I go out in public. Whenever I have questions, Shar always gets back to me quickly and whenever I need to get in, she manages to be flexible with her time!
I could't recommend her enough. Love you Shar!
Today marks day 80 that I have been pimple free!! I first found AOS via Instagram from a person I follow--they posted a very traumatic photo of their face completely broken out....as a model, I was shocked! I thought she had "perfect" skin. As someone who struggled with hormonal acne at age 21-27, the last 6 or so years have been a nightmare. I've tried almost everything under the sun: proactive, facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, dermatologist prescribed antibiotics, Rx lotions and creams...I felt hopeless and all I wanted was to be MAKEUP FREE, but couldn't. I constantly tried to cover up my skin and aimed for the "no-makeup-makeup-look" which worked because no one thought I had bad skin. So I found myself going back to the ig page of this girl, and clicking on the photo tag--@itslindsaybua. It brought me to lindsay's page and I DM'd her. I was completely nervous because I'm from a smaller suburb in L. A. and the west side...let alone, BEVERLY HILLS, has a REPUTATION...a not so nice one, so I figured she would ignore my message since I'm no ig influencer or movie star like her other clients. WRONG! Lindsay replied within an hour! She was so sweet and very personable. She asked for a photo of my skin and little blurb about what I have been going through--she then quickly put together a regimen of ALL NATURAL VITAMINS for me to take to jump start my healing process. She then recommended the Jan Marini skin line and told me about her personal struggle with acne and how this regimen has truly worked for her. I amazon prime'd the vitamins, and placed an order for the skin care regimen and then began searching their ig page for testimonials, b/a photos, info on Jan Marini and all the crazy things you do when you are skeptical of something new. I kept thinking, "can my skin truly get THESE results?!" I was a little shocked at the price for the regimen but figured, I've spent a lot of money at the dermatologist and that got me no where so I might as well splurge again and pray it works. Lindsay then recommend I go see her in BH at AOS for a glyglow facial...again, me being super skeptical, It took me 2 days to respond back and schedule. I figured the cost of treatment would be expensive especially knowing it would require more than just 1 miracle session. Within 3 weeks I saw a drastic change! I then went to see Lindsay and she was so sweet in person! She truly makes you feel comfortable in your own bare skin. So far, I'm on day 80-I've had 4 treatments--glyglow facial, chemical peel, DermaPen microneedling (2x) and scheduled for my 5th appt in 2 weeks. I have seen a total TRANSFORMATION, a real transformation in my skin and I'm loving every bit of it. I have gone make up free many days now because I finally can! Lindsay is super encouraging and great at coaching you through your journey. It definitely is something I would consider expensive, especially when you have to return every 2-3 weeks to keep on top of the progress, and because I don't live close, I have to take a full day off work to go. I would honestly say it's worth it though. To hear someone tell me, "you look amazing! Your skin looks beautiful!" ....it makes me cry every time. Can't wait to muster the courage to share my b/a photos! Lastly, in order to see a transformation, you have to be willing to let Lindsay do what she needs to do. If she recommends a peel and it will require down time and ugly dry flaky skin, do it! She knows what she is doing! A little flaky skin or redness stopped me! The more limitations you put, the slower your progress! #TRUSTTHSPROCESS
After going through a hellish past two years of skin anxiety and insecurity, due to a bad esthetician in my area messing up my face, I trusted no one to get my skin back on track and felt helpless. Not until I started following Lindsay and Sharlena on Instagram last October did I seek out Artisan of Skin after seeing all the amazing feedback and results their clients had. I reached out to them from literally 2,000 miles away in the Midwest and I soon realized that was the best decision I had ever made. Not only did they change my skin completely, but they gave me my confidence back. I've gotten numerous compliments on my skin since using all their products and I no longer wake up each day sad and depressed because something else popped up on my face. I've literally had no issues with my skin since. Their customer service and willingness to ALWAYS help, and so genuinely is absolutely amazing, even if just through Instagram messaging. I cant thank Lindsay and Sharlena, and everyone at AOS enough. You truly are amazing at what you do and I appreciate you all so much!
