Cindy Melendrez


Want the best brows in Los Angeles? Well, Cindy Melendrez is your girl.

Cindy  Melendrez is a professional makeup artist and eyebrow extraordinaire at Giuseppe Franco Salon in Beverly Hills, CA., where she is known for transforming women into Tinseltown beauties.

Cindy Melendrez’s work

A native Angeleno, Cindy Melendrez always had a passion for beauty and high fashion. It wasn’t long before she knew her true calling in life was to share beauty, glitz and glamorous makeup with women (and men) everywhere. By helping women show their most beautiful selves, she felt fulfilled and truly of service.

Cindy has an instinctual panache to highlight a woman’s natural features with the help of makeup and enhancing techniques.

Her job at at Giuseppe Franco salon  is a dream as she had long been a longtime admirer of the Giuseppe Franco salon.

She believes that Giuseppe is a consummate perfectionist with an unparalleled attention to detail. The moment Cindy met Giuseppe and saw the salon expansion (including a new makeup area) she could not resist this opportunity.

Cindy’s makeup style is a mix of timeless, classic glamour and fashion forward elegance and her clients never walk away feeling too done up but instead feel glamorous in their own skin.

All eyes will be on you after a session with Cindy.

With locations in Los Angeles and San Diego, Floyd’s 99 Barbershop’s success is built on the choice to deliver great customer service, delivered by the best hairstylists and barbers in the business, in a fun, high-energy environment, at a great value.

At Floyd’s 99, we mix old-school client service with the appeal of experienced, talented staff in a high energy barbershop environment. Floyd’s 99 stylists and barbers are encouraged to display their individuality from their personal fashion and hairstyles, to taste in music. No two shops are the same, as the walls are plastered with posters of current and timeless bands and musical artists.

At Floyd’s 99 Barbershop  their approach is to keep services simple, providing quality cuts, shaves, and styles to the masses with our accessible pricing model. With cuts starting at $21 and color at $45, our brand delivers a rockin’ haircut at a value price.  To top it all off, every client’s experience is complete with our signature shoulder massage.

Walk-in service is the norm, but clients can also call ahead to be put on a wait list (just like in restaurants), or call anytime on the day they’d like to come in and make a reservation with their favorite stylist or barber.  Appointments are recommended, though, for those wanting face and head shaves and coloring services. Clients can even check out individual stylist and barber schedules on our website.

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop most importantly represents great business in practice.  Consistently our shops win Best Barbershop awards in nearly every one of our markets
