Finding a good stylist can be a hairy situation, which is why we at Haute Living have done the hard work for you. Here are the top five salons in LA where you’ll leave feeling as if your hair looks like a million bucks…or more!
1 Sally Hershberger
Sally Hershberger is a creator, innovator and hair guru. She is known for her daring cuts that grace the most famous heads in Hollywood, including Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, John Mayer and Jimmy Fallon. Though she splits her time between Melrose Place and her New York City salons, she leaves LA in the capable hands of colorists like Negin Zand and stylists such as Paul J. Perez in her absence.
Kaz Amor, the west coast partner Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi's haute Warren-Tricomi salon, knows talent when he sees it. Practically every single stylist at his West Hollywood salon has fame attached to their name. Both Brandon Martinez and Paul Norton are reality stars, the latter of whom currently stars on TLC's "Randy to the Rescue", while colorist Audrey Rae may just be one of the best hidden talents in all of LA.
3 Andy LeCompte Salon
If you want a cut above the rest, head straight to Andy LeCompte's chair and trust in the power of his snip. Regular celebrity clients like Penelope Cruz, Katie Holmes, Megan Fox, Demi Moore and Madonna sure seem to think so, and don't even flinch at the $500 cost. The price of beauty may be steep, but aren't you worth it? Read more: The Best Hair Stylists - Top Celebrity Hair Salons - Harper's BAZAAR
4 Neil George Salon
British natives Amanda George and Neil Weisberg have been working hand-in-hand to create gorgeous cuts and colors since opening their Beverly Hills salon, Neil George, in 2005. They have accrued a monster list of celebrity clients and received national attention on shows like "Extreme Makeover", "Extra" and "The Style Network" ever since. Though Renee Zellweger, Heidi Kum, Nicole Kidman, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson and Mary-Kate Olsen are among their clients, you may want to give the salon's expert colorist, Lindsay Rivera a try if you're a fan of the au naturel California girl look.
5 Salon Benjamin
Though it's only been open since May 1, Salon Benjamin has received major buzz. For starters, Benjamin Mohapi's West Hollywood salon has acquired colorist to the stars Tracey Cunningham, formerly of the renowned salon Byron + Tracey. Its clients just so happen to include Emily Blunt, Anna Paquin, Portia de Rossi, Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Damon. Lastly Mohapi himself is just so effortlessly cool that it's no wonder 'It' girls like Emma Stone and Agyness Deyn can't stay away.
