Kathryn Connors purchased the rights to a technique of facials that dates back to the heyday of Hollywood when a French aesthetician, Madame Renna, partnered with Dr. Campbell, a dentist whose knowledge of facial muscles helped minimize the effects of aging. Together they had a salon in Beverly Hills and serviced some of the great Hollywood stars of the silver screen. This technique, perfected by Dr. Campbell and Madame Renna developed a facial honey formula that stimulates the blood flow in your face that helps soften the wrinkles and enhancing a more youthful appearance.
Ms. Connors trained in The Renna Method in 1982. She is happy to reintroduce these facial classes created by Dr. Campbell and Madame Renna. Their facial contouring massage technique - formerly known as The Renna Method - is now being reintroduced as The Original Hollywood Honey Facial - an advanced class for aestheticians.
