The Daily Summer’s Chic Beauty Lounge: Meet La Don Spa’s Thuyen Nguyen
Tomorrow afternoon, The Daily Summer is bringing some major pampering to East Hampton, thanks to an exclusive beauty lounge at c/o The Maidstone. On the prettifying docket? Mini facials by celeb skin savant Thuyen Nguyen of La Don Spa, some coif action thanks to the tress pros at John Frieda, makeovers, foundation matching, and gift bags from Boots Pharmacy, nibbles from The Chia Co., plus luxe libations from Pampelonne, VEEV, and Evian. Also on offer: Sinn Style’s pop-up shop, for some retail therapy between treatments. The lounge is invite-only, alas, but this luminous skin intel from Nguyen is free for all, darlings!
You’re known as the “personal trainer for the face” out in L.A. What’s your top treatment?
The La Don Instant Lift Facial, a protein facial that works from the inside. It’s really sought-after during awards season because it instantly gives you a fresh, lifted look before special events. It’s completely natural—there are no side effects, and it really does deliver. I keep hearing, “I’m so glad I found you; I was looking for something natural. I’m tired of Botox.”
Who are your A-list regulars?
Jennifer Aniston, Eva Mendes, Uma Thurman, Natalie Portman, and Justin Theroux.
How mobile are your services?
I’ve done facials on private planes! Clients are greeted by the paparazzi the minute they land. When you fly, you puff up, so I’ll do the facial an hour before landing.
Where else do you offer your services?
My New York outpost is a hidden room in the lobby of Tribeca’s Aqua Studio. Eventually, I’d like to open in Southampton. I do a lot of house calls for my clients there.
