Beauty & Fashion BUZZ – Summer 2010

Nation Ltd
Los Angeles, California
One white t-shirt changed everything for Designer Jen Menchaca! After working with David Kelly Production for 6 years, Jen Menchaca decided to start on a new path designing t-shirts. She founded Nation Ltd in 2005 with a basic line which has now expanded into a full collection, which keeps her busy, full time. Her inspiration for creating the line was her father’s signature look, a worn, white v-neck t-shirt that he used to wear around the house to do handy work. Because she wanted to recreate her dad’s favorite t-shirt in a clean fitted way she designed these shirts that she describes as “second skin comfortable.”

All of the t-shirts in her line have no graphics and are very simple and soft in their look and feel. They are perfectly affordable, ranging in price from $55 to $120. L.A. celebrities love her t-shirts and they are seen around town worn by Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, Kate Hudson and Kim Kardashian. Her clothes can be found at Intermix, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

Román Salon
Sheri Romàn, owner of Romàn Salon on La Cienega in West Hollywood, worked at Art Luna as a senior colorist for 17 years before she made the decision to open her own salon 3 years ago. She and her husband chose the salon’s location because “the space felt right and she loved the courtyard.” Sheri also liked the fact that it feels like it is a hidden jewel, since it is slightly tucked away and you can’t tell it is there from the outside. The space is large, occupying two floors and featuring a beautiful courtyard. The look and feel is clean and classy. It is absolutely perfect for hosting bridal parties or luncheons since it is so spacious. Her goal of creating long-term, happy clients has paid off and she has an extensive list of loyal clients, who love the salon and would never think of going elsewhere. Celebrities love her salon as well, and her many celebrity clients include Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi, Rebecca Gayhart and Marissa Miller. The salon is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information on Salon Roman visit
