Meet Sepi Bakhtiar of Sepi Spa in Santa Monica

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sepi Bakhtiar.

Sepi, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve been a licensed esthetician for over 25 years and I’m also a certified Reiki healer. For a long time, I was a stay at home mom, but I was always interested in the beauty industry, specifically skincare. Once my kids got older, I decided to get my esthetician’s license and started working at the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills. After a couple years working there, I decided I needed to branch out and start my own business. And the rest is history…

Has it been a smooth road?
By far, the biggest challenge I faced throughout my career was building up my client base. I’ve worked really hard since day one fostering loyal clients and making sure I keep them happy and coming back. But I’ve been fortunate enough to meet some great people who’ve been very happy with my work over the years. If I had one piece of advice for anyone starting in this business it’s that you’re only as good as your clientele.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Sepi Spa – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Sepi Spa is a beauty spa on Montana Ave. in Santa Monica. We specialize in facials and non-invasive skin procedures, but we also provide many other beauty/skincare services (waxing, sauna, makeup, lashes, etc…). In addition to that, we also sell a very exclusive line of beauty products. These are high end products from all over the world (Japan, Italy, France, etc…) that you won’t find at most other places in Los Angeles. Our product line is always evolving with modern beauty trends and we pride ourselves in finding the best international products.

As a company, we’re very proud of the fact that we put our clients’ needs above everything else. Since I started in this industry, I’ve always tried to personally customize a client’s individual beauty regiment to their needs. At the end of the day, we consider ourselves to be a boutique spa and with that comes the responsibility of providing a one of a kind, personalized experience for our clients that you can’t find at other places.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Los Angeles is such a great place for the beauty industry because everyone seems to be up on latest beauty trends and the industry as a whole is very competitive here, which pushes you to constantly provide better, more effective services for your clients.

This may sound crazy, but speaking as an esthetician, the weather is actually the thing I like the least about LA. Too much sunshine is one of the worst things for your skin, so I’m constantly having to remind my clients about overexposure to the sun.
