Our founder, Doran passed her state boards in 2005 and opened a skincare studio in 2008.  She started Haute Beauty Guide later that year as a way to educate her clients on how to take care of their skin in between appointments.  As life changed HBG changed.  It has now grown into a daily publication of outfits, life, travel adventures, and beauty routines.  This space is our love letter to California and we hope it inspires you to live your life locally, around the kitchen table and enjoying the company of loved ones.

Our Values

We take a curious, caring, positive, and ethical approach to curating. We test the products, places, and ideas we write about so that you don’t have to. We will never recommend something that we don’t love and think worthy of your time, energy, and your wallet. We value your trust above all things.

Our Mission

Haute Beauty Guide inspires women to live their best life, connect to their local community and nourish themselves through simple luxuries.
