Meet Our Team
Linda Ruberto, Owner
Linda, the “Brow Boss,” is a licensed esthetician, massage practitioner, and 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 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.
Kelli June, Esthetician
“I have found Star Brows to be the perfect place to share my passion for skin care, 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 that help people feel special and truly cared for. I appreciate the many ways this field gives me the opportunity to reach out and positively add to another person’s day.”
After receiving her Degree in Psychology from Cal Poly, Kelli re-trained for the beauty industry at the Aveda Institute in Austin, TX where she worked at spas doing make-up for photo shoots and fashion shows, but was anxious to get back to the Central Coast by her family. Kelli’s always known that her internal energy was fueled by the interactions and relationships she has with others. Helping people and building connections are both very high priorities to her, and finding a career that has allowed her to do this has been very fulfilling.
Linda on Kelli
“Kelli is a natural! I enjoy the privilege of working with such a bright talent and helping her further develop her potential and industry knowledge. She’s very precise but not afraid to push it to the next level. Kelli’s good with first-timers who might be nervous. She is such a genuinely nice person, people naturally gravitate toward her, and she puts them at ease. I’m excited about what she brings to Star Brows.”
