About Star Brows

Meet Our Team

Linda Ruberto, Owner

544097_151584115001247_1397076028_nLinda, the “Brow Boss,” is a California State Licensed Esthetician and Massage Practitioner, and a published author for the spa industry. As a beauty therapist, she is passionate about creating couture-level eyebrow design and facilitating authentic, caring connections with people in a safe, relaxed, and healing environment.

Raised in the performing arts, as a dancer, Linda owned a performing arts studio for 20 years. She also worked as a model and cosmetic consultant while she and her husband Paul raised their four children. It was a major shift and life change when she entered the spa industry at age 40, but having visited local and international spas throughout her lifetime, she had a vision.

In 1996, she opened her first solo-spa, “Body Rhythms,” in St. Paul, Minnesota. By the time she sold in 2003 to move to California, she had created a successful, industry renowned corporation, “Body Rhythms Therapeutic Spa & Salon,” that employed and trained over 100 estheticians, cosmetologists, and massage therapists.

Her philosophy is to promote natural beauty and healthy aging, while encouraging women young and old to celebrate their unique and ever-changing relationship to beauty and fashion.

Karamie Krumbholtz, Esthetician

“I am excited to work with Linda at Star Brows and to have the opportunity to share my passion as an Esthetician for skincare, waxing, and makeup! I also do eyelash extensions and work with brides both at the spa and on location. I am a Central Coast native, and I love providing treatments and services here that will help people look and feel great.”

After receiving her Degree in Psychology with honors in Montana, Karamie went on to become a Licensed Esthetician at The Design School of Cosmetology in Paso Robles. She brings a wealth of life experience as a dance instructor, personal trainer, and behavior therapist. She’s traveled the world and is thrilled to come back to San Luis Obispo to start a career in the beauty industry at Star Brows!

Linda on Karamie
“Karamie is a natural! I enjoy the privilege of working with such a bright talent and helping her further develop her potential and industry knowledge. Her touch is calming and confident and she’s good with first-timers who might be nervous. She is such an energetic and friendly person, people naturally gravitate toward her, and she puts them at ease. I’m looking forward to our clients experiencing her artistry and services.”
