Chris McMillan (above) and Michael Canalé certainly both deserve a slot here, but luckily the talents behind two of the hottest Beverly Hills salons (both made famous by Jennifer Aniston) recently teamed up for a Malibu outpost, giving us the excuse to slot them together. Visitors to McMillan have included Kate Beckinsale, Victoria Beckham, Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, Ashley Tisdale and Hugh Jackman, while Canale has colored Heidi Klum, Denise Richards, Faith Hill, Shakira and Penelope Cruz. Other recommended stylists at McMillan include Chase and Johnny Ramirez; Try Candice, Lauren and colorist Edna at Canalé.
2 John Frieda Salon
If Frieda’s name didn’t speak volumes by itself, the arrival a few months ago of Serge Normant puts this salon at the top of a serious list. Normant’s client ist includes Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts and Hillary Swank. The salon’s bucolic setting, surrounding a peaceful lilly pond (above), is certainly part of its charm. Other recommended stylists here include Caile Noble and David John.
