His Grooming Picks

From as far back as childhood, DMH Aesthetics founder Danny Holbus was into grooming. “I loved to watch my parents’ morning and evening routines, and took their timeless tricks of the trade with me to L.A.,” he says. Now, nine years after opening his popular medispa in Larchmont, Holbus is expanding, with a new spot set to open in Beverly Hills this spring. Located next to bestie Tracey Cunningham’s Mèche salon, DMH’s new location will offer a slew of quick and effective treatments, like Emsculpt, Coolsculpting and more. “When you feel happy about your appearance,” says Holbus, “you can’t help but feel pretty damn good on the inside!” Here’s what the innovative entrepreneur reaches for on the daily.
