The name Louise Franklyn might not ring any beauty world bells, but that sometimes happens when you work solely on word of mouth. The London trained esthetician has over 40 years of experience working in the West End and has even owned a studio in Wimbledon. Franklyn made the move to the States after falling in love with Taos, New Mexico, where she catered to an array of clientele, including a group so discreet she only visited in their at-home spa rooms to provide a facial.

One Taos client we can name, however, is hair stylist Patrick O’Hara, who was so impressed with Franklyn’s facials that he asked her to fly to Dallas once a month to work her skincare magic out of his newly expanded Lovers Lane salon.
