For all of us at Howl, the end of this year is a time of reflection, appreciation, and preparation for progress. We are making new plans, leaving old habits behind and focusing on what fills us up — what inspires and fuels us.

While 2016 may have been a tough one, it also brought an incredible wealth of insight, experience and invaluable life lessons. It was a testing ground, bringing priorities to light and encouraging a more passion-centered life path.

So, as we get ready to step from the old into the new, we’re looking around The Club House at Howl to appreciate the partners who continue to raise the bar… 

And, gleaming in the muted sunlight of this Downtown Long Beach shop, bringing beauty into our lives through hues of pink, caramel, tortoise and green sits Garrett Leight Optical.
