Testimonials

A Lifelong Monthly Customer

“I am very picky about my eyebrows and hadn’t been happy with anyone I tried in the area after moving back from NYC. I have to have my eyebrows ‘groomed’ monthly, so going to NYC or LA every few months just wasn’t working. I decided to try Linda about a year after she opened and am VERY happy with her ability to tame my eyebrows. I will be a lifelong monthly customer.”

So Much Fun to Work With

Kelli is amazing. She is so sweet and so personable and she knows her stuff! She even went through the trouble of doing skin treatments on my face before my wedding and she answered every question I had about skin and makeup. I loved how she did my makeup for my wedding. It was exactly what I told her I wanted, and she did it even better than I imagined. Kelli is so much fun to work with and she certainly loves what she does.”

Superb Wedding Day Makeup

“We were going for an “Old Hollywood” theme for my wedding, so I had a specific look in mind. I went on a quest for a makeup artist that could help me achieve the look for my big day, and I found Linda Ruberto of Star Brows! She was very helpful and professional. She knew just what I needed to accomplish the look and to feel beautiful on such an important day in my life. She studied the look, picked out the colors and lashes, and completed a trial for me before the wedding – even when I was running late. Wedding day, she was at the venue early and ready to go and was even so kind as to provide snacks and soothing music for those pre-wedding jitters! The makeup on my wedding day was superb. I loved it and I felt beautiful. This was one of the pieces of the look and it was everything I wanted. Linda also did my mother’s makeup and she was beautiful. I couldn’t be happier!”
Jessica M., Bride

Precision and Care

“I don’t consider myself a person who often indulges in personal pampering, but after a visit to Star Brows, I think I am hooked. The owner, Linda, is not only a wonderful person and easy to talk to, but I left feeling so lovely and well-looked-after. Honestly, I can’t wait until the next time I can come in. She goes above and beyond expectations and has certainly converted me. Had I known that there was anyone here on the Central Coast offering the services I got, at a reasonable price, and with such precision and care, I would have been in sooner!”

Working Together Was Very Rewarding

“I met Linda Ruberto at a recent wedding, and we connected right from the beginning. We were in touch several times prior to the wedding and it has been a pleasure working with her. While working with Linda and her assistant during the wedding we just did together, I noticed she has a natural talent and is completely comfortable in her surroundings. Our bride was at ease the entire time, and she and her mom were extremely happy with Linda’s work. Our experience working together was very rewarding. She is a wonderful person, always smiling and making people feel comfortable. I highly recommend her and promise that any bride would be lucky to have the chance to work with her. I look forward to working together again soon.”

Brazilian Wax During Pregnancy

“I made an appointment to get a Brazilian while I was almost 6 months pregnant and Kelli was very gentle. She is super thorough! She was able to do a very clean Brazilian. I had no feeling of stickiness or residual wax, and she didn’t miss a single hair. Kelli also provided great post-treatment-care suggestions. Kelli is the only one I will see for waxing from now on.”

My Skin Has Never Looked Better

“I have been seeing Linda at Star Brows for over a year, and my brows and skin have never looked or felt better. Linda does my brows about every five weeks, and I get a facial whenever my budget allows. She has reshaped my brows so they complement my face much better than before. I have learned so much about my skin from Linda. I have also received a facial from Melissa, which was wonderful! I felt so relaxed and absolutely pampered. I have also started using OSEA skin care and Youngblood cosmetics, thanks to Star Brows. Can’t wait for my next facial!”

Amazing Body Work

“Linda does amazing body work. I have been to many therapists over the years and she is definitely an expert in her field. I would not hesitate to recommend her.”
Steve Tullius, Chiropractor

She Defines the Golden Rule

“Although I’ve not used Linda’s eyebrow or massage services, I was a frequent client in the Body Rhythms Day Spa & Salon (St. Paul). I watched as she coached and guided those under her employ, teaching something that has been neglected in our society for years. Linda believes in total professionalism combined with a spiritual caring for her clients and insists that those under her guidance adhere to her high standards. Service to others is a mission with Linda. She defines the golden rule.”

Passionate About What She Does

“I have had massages and facials at several locations, but before Star Brows, I always left feeling more discouraged about myself than anything. Linda is a kind and encouraging professional who enhances my best features. I have received several services from her. I received a prenatal massage that I can still remember almost three years later, and I always love having my brows & lashes perfected by her. As a blonde, my eyebrows and lashes blend in. But with Linda’s design and expertise, she brings those features to life and gives me the freedom to wake up each day without the need of makeup! Lash and brow dying are amazing! Linda is passionate about what she does, and that passion is contagious!”
Allegra Birtcher Parreira, Workin' Wife & Mama

Amazing Facial Experience

“I saw Kelli at Star Brows for a facial and since I had never received a facial before I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. She took the time to talk me through the procedure beforehand, asked questions about my daily skincare regime and inquired whether I had any skin concerns. She helped me feel relaxed from the moment I walked in. Kelli is very kind and provided excellent service. It’s obvious that Kelli is passionate about what she does and that she enjoys her job immensely. Hands down, I would recommend Kelli for skincare, and I plan on going back to her for not only another facial but for waxing as well. If you want an informative, relaxing, enjoyable facial, go see Kelli at Star Brows for an amazing facial experience.”
Kara T., Client

Felt Instantly at Ease

“Linda takes a massage experience from the ordinary to the extraordinary! I felt instantly at ease with her the first time we met. She made me feel welcome and comfortable. She spent time asking me where my problem areas were and what concerns I had. Her spa is private, cozy, and warm. Linda’s gifts are her intuitiveness, technique, and knowledge of anatomy. She combines these beautifully and expertly!”
Marilyn Rivas Tate, Photographer

Emotionally Rewarding

“I have been going to Star Brows for three years, and Linda is an absolutely fantastic esthetician and massage therapist. She is extremely knowledgeable about skincare and massage, and she has helped me develop a skincare routine that has my face looking the best it’s ever looked (without being pushy or overbearing about selling products). She is also a big-hearted, caring person and I find my sessions with her emotionally rewarding as well. I would highly recommend Linda and Star Brows!”

Ahhh Spa

“What do I love about Star Brows? Let me count the ways! Peaceful, relaxing, just plain ahhh!”
Mary K, Client

Excellent at Eyebrow Shaping

“Linda understands facial structure and the optimizing of a face through the awareness of appropriate eyebrow shaping. She is professional, courteous and friendly. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs to get professional help with their brows. The ambiance of the treatment lounge is very conducive to relaxation.”
Lisa S., Client

In-depth Knowledge of Her Subject

“Linda Ruberto has written for ASCP Skin Deep magazine (an industry publication for estheticians) and will be writing for us again in future. She has an in-depth knowledge of her subject and an engaging, informative writing style that requires little to no editing – and she’s very easy to work with! I recommend her to anyone looking for a writer.”
